in one scene they were on backwards so on the wrong sides, in another they were on a 90 degree offset in the way the stargazer's were

My AC went out Monday. Tuesday I got to pay 80 bucks for a bug. A literal bug. An earwig got into the switch on the compressor

Dave my HVAC guy said it the 27 earwig he has extracted from an AC this year.

It's a conspiracy I tell you! :eek:

We all use verbal punctuation. However, in the manner of leet speak or text speak in written language, excessive use has the undesirable effect of making the speaker sound ignorant.
OMG! I was *like* having coffee *like* outside in front of Starbucks yesterday and these three *like* teenage girls at the table next to me were *like* talking about their boyfriends and *like* other stuff and I was *like* ready to scream at all the *likes*. I mean *like* every other frickin' word was *like*! It makes me *like* sick at the state of teenage vocabulary.
No sir, I don't LIKE it!
