Steven Tyler is lodging at your house, isn't he?
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Ideally his dismembered corpse would be bagged and in my basement waiting for strategic burial in various parts of the province.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Shouldn't you just be able to blow air in his general direction and have him decompose instantly to dust and hair particles like the Nazi sympathizers who drank from the wrong grail in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?

If you have to dismember and bag him you're working way too hard.

I'm operating under the assumption that his skin has converted to a tough jerky-like leather.

This new foamy soap sucks, yet seems to be sweeping the nation. Is it better in anyway?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I agree. We have it at work. Don't see the point, really. :meh:

The soap, I can deal with. These hand motion controlled sinks, on the other hand, can eat a bag of dicks. The restroom on my floor at work has three of them. None of them work. At all. In the restroom downstairs, one of the three works. Those things suck enough when they DO work, let alone when they don't.

What about hand dryers? Those things suck.

I'm okay with those. The Accelerator is especially effective. I hate when people take like seven paper towels to dry their hands. At least hand dryers teach people to tolerate having damp hands for a few minutes.

I like having dry hands so I can shake another man's hand.

I'm sure you're more of a hugger, so you probably don't understand my objection.

They're making paperless hand dryers powerful enough these days to effectively dry hands. It just might take an extra, like, 10 seconds than if you had a wad of towels.

Sure, I've used powerful ones before, but very few places have powerful ones. Usually the air isn't even hot.

Maybe you should be better at where you go to the bathroom.

I don't shake a man's hand right after coming out of the bathroom. That's kinda fem.
