The rule should be, do NOT provide context. Here's mine.


As noted by Cowan, "The best thing is to be, more or less, with shorts or naked on the beach, with the saltwater, which acts as an electrical conductor, holding hands with somebody you love. That's how you structure the water." Sun exposure, grounding and skin-to-skin contact are three prevention strategies that, ideally, everyone should be doing. It doesn't get a whole lot easier or less expensive than that.

The most important testimony came from Dr. Bliss. Spectators cried and cringed as Bliss made his point, using Garfield's actual spine, that the shot fired by Guiteau directly caused the President's death, however long it took to do so. As Guiteau was driven away from the courtroom after Bliss's testimony, a horse pulled alongside his van and the horse's drunk rider--a farmer named Bill Jones--fired a pistol through the bars of the van. The bullet struck Guiteau's coat, but left the prisoner uninjured.

A tiny bit above whatever minimum wage is (4 hour shift). Maybe $40 cash on top.

Rock 'n roll is here to stay,
It will never die
It was meant to be that way,
Though I don't know why
I don't care what people say,
Rock 'n roll is here to stay

No, no. I'd like to answer this question if I may in two ways. Firstly in my normal voice and then in a kind of silly high-pitched whine... You see housing is a problem really...

"I don't think Brienne was born in the Nethergloom," Callie says. "So she doesn't have the same likes and dislikes of your typical dark elf." Callie laughs when Serai compliments the construct. "I made the stew only an hour ago with my own two hands; I just used the minion to dish it out, in this case. I *do* get a lot of interesting couples. I like this vulpine/elven couple named Brian and Raewen. They've been married for a couple of years. They come here for dinner every now and then, and to play chess."
