    To build on that,why do some people rely so heavily on one side and are seemingly worthless with their non-dominant hand?

    The Latin for "left": sinister. When the lefties outnumber us, evil shall rule the Earth.

    I love both of these but who was the person that looked at either a lobster or an oyster and thought food?

    Because nobody wants to be around a woman that's having a bad hair day?

    Why does LaRosa's ask for BOTH my phone number and name every single time I call them for carryout?

    Somebody get them some floppy discs so they can start saving this stuff.

    There are 2 types of sugar, sugar A and sugar B, whose combination determines part of the names.
    A = only sugar A
    B = only sugar B
    AB = both sugar A and B
    O = no sugar group

    "O" actually comes from the German word "Ohne" which means "without" since those types of blood showed no signs of either sugar type.

    Unfortunately, my blood must be overloaded with sugar A.
