or is it taking him too much time to count his ballooning home equity each morning?

or is he just scared by the brightness and hiding under his bed?

thanks for tracking the evidence. it's important to only make claims that are backed by factual data.

i knew i could count on the collective wisdom of hcn!

should i start cooking my dinner or should i waste some more time on mindless surfing and hcn-ing?

nemo did it again. we need to subpoena him to spill the beans on how he does it.

those used to be made in england...are they made in china now?
