    This must be the result of years brainwashing. When someone is feed garbage constantly, they end up vomiting it back up. It is hard to believe that someone could be this zealous.

    pseudo, it was like reading 10 years of KMs condensed in one list. I think Brooklyn has this list and trots out 5 or 6 in every KM recycling them every year. It makes you feel like a child.

    I was told that there was a rule in the New Boy Book at Bethel that says, "Please remember to flush thoroughly."

    I don't think you did, pseudo.
