    Having to say "Urethra" perfectly to the police was the pre-1967 analogue version of the breathalyser in the U.K..

    I have come to understand that outstanding results are possible with almost anything so long as you understand the performance characteristics.
    AMEN brother!

    That's a really mature and experienced way to explain it. We all have our "favorites" and I can really relate to the "Magic Bullet" Theory

    Real words of turth, thanX, I can't wait for the moment I stop "mucking" around.

    Just as an aside, did you mean "Urethra" as an expletive.

    urethra |yoŏˈrēθrə|
    noun Anatomy & Zoology
    the duct by which urine is conveyed out of the body from the bladder, and which in male vertebrates also conveys semen.
