    A request like that in a thread with such an interesting title will never be granted.

    And besides - I'm not a collector, but an accumulater of various old stuff.

    In large parts of Norway, "han Tykje" is a widespread swearword. The large majority believes it to be another name for the devil. The interesting this is that it's not - it's a local pronunciation of the name of the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe! It turns out that as a reward for his work the King gave him the rights to the tax collection in northern Norway (at that time a part of Denmark). He must have been good at that job too, to live on as a swearword after more than 400 years...

    Me too, but as I gaze into the mirror I see no reflection. Perhaps the mirror is defective. Perhaps I am already immortal.

    Time for another "transfusion"... must log off. Bye.

    don't kill collectors; that would only drive up their value.

    I'm not going to horde collectors. No way.

    As I sort through my firearms collection, I wonder why you would bring a knife to a gun fight.

    The first rule of fight club is: you don't talk about fight club.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Ok, it looks like I am going to have to shop for ceramic body armour size large (north america) 52 (Europe). At least I use my gear, not leave it on the self under glass or wrapped in plastic.

    I don't have a knife or a gun... all I have is a large penis... I feel so inadequate! :rolleyes:
