I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

I'm taking it you aren't a nuclear physicist or weapons designer.

We are used to your type. Matt broke our will and nom kicked is while we were down.

Yellowcake can be used to describe a type of radioactive material.

I blame Jaysen. I warned him that plan #28 was too risky and could have negative consequences, but no, the headless one was convinced he could pull it off. Well, thanks to hubris, it looks like we'll only have 19 hours and 30 minutes to write a novel in a day (twice).

Not kicking, prodding: I was checking if you were OK. :roll:

It's alright Yellowcake, some of these northern hemisphere types can be a little soft. If all else fails, simply smile and nod slowly when they become too obtuse.

I am guessing Yellowcake was thinking of yellow cake with icing. And isn't that sweet? Or perhaps Yellowcake is playing it coy until you try yourself a slice...
