  • Lol, you can't share with me cuz you want to, that would be wrong. The gov needs to come in, take 40 ounces of your 72 ounce pot of coffee and redestribute 6 ounces to me, while going broke and complaining about not having enough coffee. Cause sharing with your neighbor should be regulated! After all, your coffee might be stronger than mine and I might get the jitters. Someone has to protect me from all that dangerous good will that's out there.

  • Ummmm, YEAH! Absolutely ridiculous!!!

    "Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said the agency was following standard procedure in its response. "But we feel this (law) really gets in the way of common sense," Boyd said."

    Gee, yah think?!

    In our neighborhood, we're all "criminals!" (sarcasm) I guess I shouldn't ever collect my 83 year old neighbor's mail/packages, upon her request, when she is away--or accept things like Mother's Day flowers from her children when she is not home to receive them, huh?!. Whatever.

  • Sorry about the random w. It's early. It just seems like we need a special interest group just for being average.
