    I wonder if anyone knows how to make glue from scratch, without any machines, anymore?

    Glues not that hard to make. We make it and soap on the bayou.. My great grand never trusted inventions like pre made soap and glue. They were inventions of the devil according to her.

    Why were they inventions of the devil? Didn't she know that human beings in factories made it, and that it was just a larger scale version of what she was doing?

    Untwist your panties Grimmlok, it was a joke. My great granny was extremely suspicious yes, but I was actually referencing "The Waterboy" where the waterboy's cajun momma said everything was 'de debull' just like my great granny. But she did teach me to make soap and glue, it's not that hard.

    I like my panties twisted, they squeeze everything just right.

    I just can't fathom how a person with a brain could think like that.

    I knew a crazy religious woman who wouldn't eat any food that she thought came from the devil. That included anything with the word "devil" in it, (devil's food cake was out, as was Underwood Deviled ham) but also anything that had any red on the package. If you want to make yourself crazy, try buying only food products that don't have a speck of red on the packaging.
    Keep passing the open windows.
