Just how good is the Acid in the States at the moment? Why don't you think
that discussions of the wider context of dinosaur extinctions are relevant
to a thread titled "Dinosaur Extinction Theories"? And I thought it was
common knowledge that Pop-tarts were highly toxic, invented by Iraq and
sold to Oliver North by the ton. Or is it that your core really has warped?

This is not a flame, mearly some light-hearted banter in a similar vein to
that of the former post.
