... and one more thing! - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
... and one more thing!
I'd like the find the individual who invented Styrofoam packing peanuts, and put a bullet in his or her head for my troubles, too. These are the worst things ever invented, eclipsing even Muzak and the Olsen Twins. I mean, they're just horrible! They generate static and then cling to everything they touch, including the items they're supposed to protect during shipping and the people trying to unpack said items. They break apart easily and, once broken, use their super powerful static powers to get into crevices (like, oh.... the spaces between keys in keyboards). Worst of all is that my cat believes that they are a delectable treat to eat whole and then vomit up along with whatever food he hasn't digested.

Sometimes progress means taking a step backwards and returning to basics. First step back? Ban the ghost-turds.

That is all.

I bless the man who invented bubblewrap, and doubly bless the one who invented Super Jumbo Bubblewrap (the kind where each cell is the size of a loaf of bread).

Ghost turds...never heard 'em called that before. Oddly fitting :P

Are the peanuts worse than pop-up ads, telemarketers, or Dr. Laura?

The Olsen Twins aren't evil anymore.

They're just jailbait. >:D

However, if you could hunt down and torture Martha Stewart for me, I would be forever in your debt.

Re: The Olsen Twins aren't evil anymore.

I accept cash, check or charge (via PayPal). Ammunition is also billed to your account after the work is done. Currently there is a waiting list for this person... most of the people ahead of you are frazzled housewives who believe she must be eliminated before she makes their lives any more harf-tastic.

Nothing is more horrible than Dr Laura.

Those aren't horrible, they're just unsettling -- or exciting, depending on who you are.

Now let us never speak of them again.

Re: Urp?

You cannot be serious. How can we just NEVER speak of this again. I think I can remember a particular URL for everyone to followup on this at...

Next time I send you Cheb-endorsed goodness in the mail, I'll try to remember to avoid the packing peanuts. I use them for packing for the sole purpose of recycling them, rather than throwing the damn, earth-toxic things out.
