Next you'll be showing an autopsy of the Toothfairy! *runs crying from the room*

Now that I'd like to see.
And here I thought it was tiny magic elves in scuba gear...
I think you're still safe, boo_radley. A true dork would have referred to it as a D20 and pointed out that you usually us it for calculating damage, not telling the future.

mexican: That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me today ;)
sincere and thoughtful choices
Hmmmmm, is that why you have a pile of empty beer cans stacked in your window along with a pair of those pre-browned BVDs containing moldy oregano? You really shouldn't have bought that Ford Pinto. And plaids with stripes have NEVER been in, Buddy.
eightball I know ye never lied to me ye could unveil a mystery with truths phrased enigmatically like the oracle of old Delphi
