Tommy Wiseau had a sitcom called The Neighbors. It was bad.

Interesting how when someone fails at making a drama (The Room), it's often so unintentionally funny it should be called a comedy, but when someone fails at making a comedy (The Neighbors), it's so unfunny it's too painful to watch.

It is a damp morning. It may seem dull damp and dismal, but I actually enjoy this type of weather as it keeps people indoors where I can come out to play! Haha!
Uncrowded beaches etc. Bliss!

"Klein" is the German word for "small".
I looked up the name "Calvin" after learning this, and then I learned Calvin comes from French and means "bald".

So Calvin Klein literally means "Bald Small".

Okay... :lol:

The 2nd American to ever have a federal prescription for marijuana as well has been the patient with the longest legal prescription for marijuana ever has the same rare genetic bone disease that I have MHE. Apparently only like a dozen patients were prescribed medical marijuana by the US government before George H W Bush canceled the program and grandfathered the remaining patients, this man being one of them.

The Fawn River flows into the Severn River in Northern Ontario. Looks like it might be a good wilderness trip.

A lack of interest in someone else's sexual identity can inspire violence and threats of violence against you.

Using your non-dominant hand for mundane tasks, like eating or opening doors, for two weeks can improve your self-control.

Today I learned about [url top app development companies in Ukraine[/url] and am glad about it. I was just looking for professional mobile app developers for my business.
