    I'm big time stifling my laughter to that comment. I usually work from home and I'm in an office today. They already think I'm nuts, and now I'm laughing out loud to myself!

    I wanna no what prehistoric man used as hair gel. Hmmm.

    And the human head weighs 12 lbs? Harumph, that is NOT what the child on Jerry Maguire said.
