    The Sun - 68deg.
    Toe - 89deg.
    Grill of small elec. heater on low - 224deg

    ...
    you fired a laser at the sun?

    Well, with you being a guy...this doesn't surprise me one bit.

    I bet this one was a lot higher up on this list though, like 2nd or 3rd place.

    You can use your illusion, let it take you where it may...
    We live and learn, and then, sometimes, it's best to walk away...
    Me, I'm just here hanging on, it's my only place to stay at least for now, anyway...
    I've worked too hard for my illusions just to throw them all away...

    Let's see, if I remember, out of the box it was, wall - toe - junk. Yep, 3rd. Toe before junk as a safety test.

    good news ..... for toto, at least

    angela merkel is giving up the party leadership - whether or not she'll remain as chancellor, and for how long, remains to be seen

    probably doesn't want to be the premier that presides over the breakup of the european union when more bricks start to crumble away
