I love eggs.

Taxes done and filed.  I think TurboTax kind of gave me the bait and switch on pricing though.

I listen to one right wing radio show, every once in a while they discuss science and take it for granted that the earth is 4.5 billion years old and humans evolved from apes.  I wonder if this pisses of some portion of their audience?

To my coworker, there's probably a better way to abbreviate "Dynamic Analysis" other than
"Dynamic Anal."

It's like the artist takes the Uncanny Valley and pushes it as far as it will go.
