HOLY CRAP
I did not know that thread existed... I should have known that everything clever is already here at iStock anyway

Perhaps now would be a good time to plead the 5th but I will say that I got it from a gaming community where I used to lurk. Dang it.

And maybe also mention that in changing the light bulb I used the righty tighty lefty lucy right handed twist method while standing on a dining room chair.

Good crimeny... I can't believe I just did a repost *cries*

I think we need to add in
1 forum idiot to repost a thread that has already been started.

*raises hand*
I'd like to officially volunteer to be that one

You know... I actually thought about scrolling through the forums and finding an old post to restart....

I started typing in a reply from the post about the fall of the Berlin Wall....

Actually, I think that would be more like 99 forum idiots to repost the threads that have already been started.
That is hilarious though. And, pretty close to the truth.

You know what's even funnier though, read the thread that was startd in feb. that is hilarious!
