This defies probability. No thread has ever escaped Politics and Religion forum. Well, except for my Kraftwerk thread.

There's a guy Portland who makes his own kielbasa. Polish immigrant. Different levels and varieties of spice for all tastes. Delicious.

Both involving Germans.......

Hmmm, perhaps it's related to Schroedinger?

Most likely his cat. All real conspiracies involve a cat somehow.

At least you and Donna, and the other Foo folk "get" my humor! Most of my quips get treated to a blank stare in the real world!

The intelligent, well-read skilled tradesman is nearly extinct. I've got a beautiful collection of classic novels and poetry that I inherited from my great grandfather, who was a millwright. Both his son and grandson (my dad) were voracious readers and very intelligent. So is my stepdad. It's just that none of them would ever have been happy working in an office. It's sad the way blandness seems to rule these days.

Well, I can tell you after a life of living with mutitudes of the little bastids, they are always involved in any conspiracy around here. Right up to their little elevator butt tails.

I think there was another thread moved once. But you're right, not often a thread is designated lofty enough to make it out of the PnR basemant.

Randya, you are over reaching again.

I would have to agree. But most people in Wisconsin are German descendants anyway, so...

I like the crunchy kind of sausage. The kind that squirt when you bite 'em.
