    I just wasted a perfectly good hour listening to this. Even as a non-MIT person I did understand them.

    You learned a valuable lesson never to take any advice on humor from me ever again. Additionally, you are only supposed to use bad hours on something that should make you laugh to your core. It is a technique to help convince yourself that you are not as miserable as you appear.

    I am a non-MIT person too. However, I did spend a few hours in a lab there once being examined and tested. :)

    Are you a Golden Retreiver or, if you're really lucky, grass?:cool: Luckily I do accept your advice, besides on a rainy, rainy Saturday morning Click and Clack are the best revenge.

    Interesting that your believe your feelings about the Republican presidential candidates have a direct impact on your humor comprehension.

    That is not funny. Electing Mitt would be almost, but not quite, as bad a W was. "not quite" because Mitt is literate.

    So you're comparing MIT with Yale?

    I would never compare MIT with the manufacturer of mediocre locks, nor with Anybody Swedish (Assa Abloy) although there are a few MIT people, even Yalies, who've trekked to Stockholm. Not for the stocks, nor for the locks, but for the bondage of fame and world renown.

    Do you proclaim Car Talk to be a Noble endeavor?

    Tom and Ray are old. The Noble is not http://www.noblecars.com/

    Just this look proves they are not quite the types for this.

    However, I suspect you may have made a typo and thought of the Doble, more age-appropriate for them, and also politically correct for Cambridge Mass

    A steamer might work for both of them.

    I do not know. Which did you really mean, Gargoyle?

    You're a very sweet little pig, we all agree. Nobody ever said you are mean, oh stonefaced guru of the nascent plains!:eek:
    On occasion you may have been a little bit unclear, inhibited as you are by fixed expressions.:rolleyes:

    You're the stonefaced one. You are the one with the answers. IIRC in the pre-Hebraic world most gods were stonefaced.
