How many times does the phrase/word have to appear in one site, and in what time frame, before they get interested in us? :paranoid: :haha:

And in the not-so-surprising-news section:
One Million Moms (OMM - aka "one arithmetically-challenged bloke and a handful of bigots") fought a Super Hero - and lost. :evilgrin:

1. Grab top corners of duvet.
2. Put top corners of duvet in top corners of duvet cover.
3. Shake.

None of this fannying about with rolling stuff :idiot:

The watch list is certainly a mixed barrel, and no mistake.

That was awesome. I had no idea the Green Lantern had finally come out. Now it's time for Spiderman. :haha:

It's your no. 2 that is problematic. Not enough detail. :confused: Do you start with the quilt cover inside out, or the right way out? If the latter, do you climb inside with the quilt? How do you reach both corners if it's a double and you're five-foot nothing?

Of course, if you have a side-opening, single bed duvet, then your method is simple.

2 i. The duvet cover should be the right way out with the closed end at the top.
2 ii. The open end of the duvet cover should be placed over the duvet.
2 iii. The duvet corners should then be placed in the corners of the duvet cover.

Why aren't all duvets side opening? I bet the French had something to do with it.

Wu-Tang Clan's GZA working on astronomy-themed science concept album, influenced by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, among others.

God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Ok, so that's really weird, but also really cool. I've only heard a few science-based raps before, but coming from GZA, this should be good.
