I tricked the twins and Doris into thinking I'm here studying the 21th Century process of capitalism, now called Woot!ism. I don't think they really believed me but since I've not been fatally shot or such, you never know. That's the fun in life, you never know what you're going to get. Kind of like a box of chocolates. Someone told me that, can't remember the name... the memory gets funky as you get older.
By the way, very nice work on your contest entry.

From the Notebook of Lazarus Long:
"Touch is the most fundamental sense. A baby experiences it, all over, before he is born and long before he learns to use sight, hearing, or taste, and no human ever ceases to need it. Keep your children short on pocket money -- but long on hugs."

Thanks! I just post for fun. I really don't seem to have the same sense of humor as the judges at all. <G>

Yeah I picked up on the anagram, and yes I am aware that there are anagram generators out there that a lot of people in this contest used, including hames in his "special preference" and "anagrams are hard" gags. My point is that even with the anagram generators, only a small amount of the thounsands of results actually make cohesive and interesting sentences...and therefore I don't think entries that do not use exactly the right amount of letters should qualify for any prizes. I don't think chopping skills should be considered more important than taking the time to make an actual anagram. I'm not saying I should win (I know my skills are not that great yet), but there are tons of great entries that used all of the letters and the winners should come from that group. BTW...I chose not to use an anagram generator for either entry because that (for me) would've taken half the fun out of the contest...and that's why I entered, for fun. And it was fun, so there.

Well, I got a kick out of it. The technical skill on the pic was impressive, far and away above average. It wasn't until after I looked at the sources that I caught the iRiver in your finished work.

Well, I guess I need to head on home - Alicia will begin to think I've got a girlfriend (wink) wait a minute that's from Field of Dreams It's late and I'm confused worse than normal. Drop me a line (Board's Private Message) some time.

I didn't mean to offend, I just think that saying that the entries that didn't use all the letters should be disqualified is wrong. Toon himself said that wouldn't be the case, but those who came the closest to the "ideal" would be the best. These contests _are_ for fun. So lighten up!

True, True. I have lots of family experience with lungs going ka-put. Not much future in that. Why is it that most of the really important organs are only one of a kind. I would like to have a back-up heart, liver, etc.

Any technical reason why you couldn't grab a few organs out of, say, a pig (with suitable anti-rejection drugs)?

sure they will! It's the proteins that just won't get along. That pesky immune system messes up everything.

no xenotransplant ever worked. for a major organ. heart valves, sure. nothing with a lot of blood flow, though.

sometimes wonder drugs can kill us.
