Of course. My friend drank almost nothing else since he was a toddler, and he reckons as a late teenager his penis is significantly bigger than when he was five.

Yes, but the only problem is getting it out of the bottle afterwards.

Comment: Can copper or blackstrap molasses really reverse graying hair? I
heard a co-worker talking about this today and looked it up online but
there are mixed messages out there concerning this.

Sure but I think dye is a less sticky alternative to put in your hair than molasses. Unless you like the greaser look

Comment: I just saw a video which claimed that if you click the pedestrian
signal in the following order, it would change the lights to let you walk
by:

3 short clicks, 2 long, 1 short, 2 long, 3 short

Here's the source:

Can this be true? I've not yet tried it, but I'm interested to see if you
know about it.

Which translates from Morse code to: "I'll have a shoe, with cheese on it. Force it down my throat, and I want to massage your grandmother."

I don't know let me check... Nope, sorry. But than again, totally random statement versus horny boys overactive minds, which is more likely? It's Captain Obvious to the rescue!!!!

Well, yeah, it'll work... because pretty much any time you click the button, even once, it's going to set the intersection into the pedestrian cycle. It all depends on the hardware and programming at the intersection, of course, but usually, the only reason you'd have to wait longer than about 30 seconds to get a WALK signal would be because you pushed the ped button right at the start of the traffic passage cycle "furthest" from when your ped signal can be processed; and of course the amount of traffic on the road can make a difference, too. But typically, given normal vehicle and pedestrian load, pushing the ped button will get you that WALK signal in a matter of seconds. Using a "secret code" really just helps occupy your attention during the changeover from vehicular passage phase to the ped phase. Helps to pass the time, like pushing that elevator button a lot: doesn't actually do anything, but keeps you occupied.

On the other hand, I don't think it's impossible that modern traffic controllers could be set up to perform a special override in that fashion. It's just very, very unlikely.

The video was rather like a political speech: it spoke volumes without really saying anything.

What is it with the beverages and penis size?

Nuts, I could understand: "My friend told me that if you suck salted nuts, your penis will get bigger. Is it true?"

Where do they get the idea of free gas from? It's not as if the price is left at $0?

Comment: My daughter claims that the story about Billy Graham and his
marching through New Orleans was tremendous. Yhe only
inaccuracy that I could detect was his age. He is 87, not 85. The rest
of the story could be true.

You claim that this is an urban legend. You shook me up.

Billy Graham Web Site said the story was false. Who would make up such a
report??
