Rumor has it that Max Eskin may have mentioned these words:

Well, if you call drowning a haybale in boiling water 'convenient' -- ;-)
Personally, give me a nice cup of good, strong, Earl Grey... with just a
touch of _dark brown_ sugar... it gets rid of the acid-y taste without
adding nearly so much of a sweet flavor. Just don't let the water get
*cold* with the tea-bag still in - it will get a lot more bitter. Haven't
tested 'em all, but Bigelow is my preferred brand.

And now back to our regularly scheduled listserv. :-)

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
