Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09am steveo:

Good morning, Ken. Good to be here. Are you like me in that if I'm not actively listening to music I constantly have an earworm, usually some insipid pop song from when I was a teenager. Today it was a pretty good bluesy Rolling Stones song whose title and lyrics I don't remember. Sorry I missed the bagpipes.

I went through Heathrow just last November. I didn't have to worry about the baggage retrieval system since we didn't check any bags, but dang, it takes a long time to find one's way out of that behemoth.
Avatar 9:18am (((Murakami Whywolf):

I was an insecure kid stuck in my room _decades_ ago. I left it because I needed more education, more money, cats, and a spouse. Having got a wife, a couple of cats, enough money to likely last the rest of my life, and Internet-based educational and music resources, I'm going to stay in my room, because apart from those things the outside world is rubbish.

Naphtha[lene] is a petroleum derivative; the Fels corporation made (makes?) a soap of or with it. Naphtha is supposedly a good solvent for getting cannabinoids out of pot without getting too much chlorophyll or tar, but I can't verify that.

I had 1/3 of my face ripped off, and my molars shattered to the gumline (helmet saved my life), the paramedics did some first aid, gave me a few questions, and my brain seemed to be working (at the time), so I insisted on signing a waver to not take an ambulance as I had no health insurance as I was in grad school.
