Just noticed that with everyone putting in their .02 worth, you'd have $1.50.

And the Dixie Chicken. Nothing beats a hand of 42 on the back porch of the Chicken while enjoying an adult beverage after a hard weeks work.

An adult beverage? Is it not wearing enough clothes? :biggrinjester:

I think an "Adult Beverage" is one you have to explain to your underage kids.
Y'know, "I can drink this but you're too young yet." "But, Dad, I'm sure I can act just as silly as you after drinking that." :evil2:

I too have had that thought ... I think. :tiphat:

Perhaps this should be a POLL?

I would assume because the space bar is used the most out of any other key, see I just used it 22 times, wait 25,times.

I know that Dvorak did studies on this when laying out the DVORAK keyboards.
The fastest typist in the world used one and typed over 300 words per minute; she worked at Shell Oil.
(Did you know that you can make a calculator say Shell Oil upside down? [rightside up it looks like 710.77345 ])

I actually have tons of old keyboards with the letters worn off ... so I know which letters I used the most.

That trick also works with alarm keypads.

What about BUEs (Back UP Eggs) - - - raw, rotten or hard boiled? :anamatedbanana
I've never experienced Tomato printing, we used Lemons. When you print with lemon juice it becomes secret invisible ink (I think the Government knows already though, so my brother wrote in cursive, but I still printed because printing isn't illegal)

Better not write in cursive on this forum -- the moderators will censor you, then censure you.

Oh... the persistence and sheer intelligence of this thread is too much for me. That's why I changed my Avatar from nothing to the "Annoying Orange". I promise, I actually first learned of the Orange in the Wall Street Journal, which is what I read between issues of Combat Handguns and Soldier of Fortune.
