Comment: Is it true you can get free Satellite TV for your PC? If not, is
there any other way to get free TV besides an antenna, legally?

Comment: Once again, I heard the warning that --- with only few clicks on
the keyboard, one can find recipes for all sorts of dangerous things,
especially the directions for bombs. I must be using the wrong search
words because all I seem to get are sites that warn about all the
dangerous recipes available to terrorists on the internet. A New Zealand
government site did say that the recipes were probably unreliable. So, how
much danger is there from people following internet recipes to blow up
something in a community?

After proudly telling her friends and family about how she had finally managed to conceive after a considerable time trying, Jane was baffled as to why no-one would accept her invitation to thanksgiving dinner.

I don't know what it tastes like, but in Agatha Christie novels it always smells like bitter almonds.

I know that if you give a coyote gunpowder he will try to use it to catch a roadrunner. Hilarity will ensue.
