Don't say that. VB.NET lives! Wink

VB.Net is an abomination straight from the pit of hell.
Fucking Microsoft.

I have been doing origami so long that I can make an origami crane very, very fast. I can also make a rose from a napkin or paper towel really fast.

I'll have to take some. I don't think I've ever taken any of the roses. I gave two to a girl I later dated (her dad accidentally flattened the first one), and a few more to people I figured needed a smile & a good day.

The cranes... I leave those things all over places I go. Smile

But I shall get on it.

Things Most Humans Can't Do

Licking elbows is in there, as well as some tongue tricks. How many of these can you do? Let's talk about that.


(I'm not sure of the customary way to post vids on TTA, so for now I'm just doing the link.)

wiggle both ears-check
raise one eyebrow-check
roll my tougue-check
tickle myself-check
touch my nose with my tongue-nope
licking my elbow-nope

so there is that..

My favorite is to make a jumping frog out of the stiff paper backing inside a single normal sized Reese's Cup package. The paper is really stiff, so the frogs jump really high. Plus, it's already cut into a square!

Noob...

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
