Silly things

A. Do you know what I really hate? Those theft-proof plastic cases that come with cell phone chargers or PDAs or XM radio receivers or what have you. What's wrong with these people? It takes military weaponry to tear them open. Okay, maybe an ecto knife would work. But boy, those things, when ripped open, are dangerous. What are they trying to protect anyway? It's just as easy to steal the whole darn thing.

B. You know what's weird? And I think most people have done this at least once... I mean, you go to a grocery store or a supermarket thinking you're only going to grab one thing and leave, so you don't take a basket or a cart. Then you find something interesting in aisle 2, and something you like in aisle 5, then something you need but forgot in aisle 12. So by the time you reach the checkout line, you have 12 things in the cradle of your arms, dangling, falling, crinkling and crumbling. And you look ridiculous. Then you drop that carton of milk. Splash...

C. wlitvgeo -- whatever it means. It looks like it may mean something. Something TV Geo something. Wait... I see, it's just a word verification thingy for leaving a comment...

Silly. Silly. Silly.

Gee, Raym a frequency doubled neodymium yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser emitting 532 nanometer (green) light at 10 watts output power is theoretically capable of opening those things easily.

uh, that 'm' at the end of Ray was supposed to be a comma. Sorry.

It can be if that's what you want it to be dear.

By the way, I love Wikipedia - it makes me look smarter than I am... >:-)
