    You left yourself open for so many configurations of numbers and equations, I feel like a ton of people are dead weight right under your question.

    Thing is, a ton is 2,000 pounds. So "a ton of people" is supposed to sound like a lot of folks, but that's misleading if you really think about it. Some quick and dirty algebra reveals that you're talking about maybe a dozen people. Eight 150-pounders plus four 200-pounders gives you a ton. So to describe a crowd, a ton of people is nothing. You really need to talk about at least a hundred tons of people - that gets you over 1,000. Folks could sound so much sharper if they thought things like this through before writing.

    Having a sense of humor helps one understand sarcasm and can increase life expectancy. You should try it.

    Budweiser. It's totally pointless.

    American beer is like making love in a canoe. F***ing close to water.

    I don't know if it is because we meet so late at night or early in the morning, depending on how you look at it; but, you sincerely do, crack me Up sometimes.
    Hugs and loves.
    :) :)  I'm going to bed for a few hours.

        ?        Not sure where you have been the last 40 years.  That sounds like something which could have come from the mid 1970s.

    Earlier than that, it's a quote from Monty Python's Flying Circus. Early 70s.

    I first tried American beer in the late 80s. I've sampled various US brews since but haven't yet encountered a drinkable one.

    This is the only social networking I do and I do agree, whole-heartedly, with the graffiti-body tattoos.
      I would like to say, however, I do have a tattoo.  One.
      It is in a spot where you can see it most of the time.  It doesn't jump out at you nor is it on any part of my hands, arms, butt or lower back.  Of course, those last mentioned would not be visual all the time; however, it is something I designed, adore and am proud to wear it.  
    Just to say, I am not against tattoos when they are done tastefully and mean something to you.  Making your body as a graffiti board is very busy and distracting.  I agree.

    With a chest like that, you don't need a tat!!  Your chest speaks for itself and that is a fact!
