What is wrong with taxing sin?

cheryljean777 on 2011-01-12 14:48:27
Clever answer, maradnu.

montyb on 2012-07-13 16:24:06
It goes against the current politically correct mantra: "No nude taxes!"

This quote hasn't been verified to have come from Lincoln. http://www.takeourword.com/TOW194/page2.html

Do the hustle!

GtrZan on 2017-08-29 03:52:12
I just can't see Lincoln using the term "hustle", but I could be wrong

bwbaer on 2014-10-14 03:52:20
Would you call that "moving"?

montyb on 2015-06-02 09:41:59
Yes, one rock at a time.

So much for the limits of reason.

Jane Austen . . . . rings a bell . . . I think she was in my English class.

Does the name quasimodo ring a bell?

kb83 on 2015-04-09 05:07:56
And the second most wonderful is memory.

LLapp on 2015-08-22 19:39:54
kb83, that gave me a very big laugh.

Persephone59 on 2017-04-14 21:46:35

You have a Masters for your Johnson, Montyb?

Good one, kb83

BrainCellKeeper on 2017-12-31 11:13:07
25 seconds!! I realize bragging about that doesn't make my sexuality sound very impressive

LLapp on 2018-01-21 10:31:46
Hooray, BrainCellKeeper!! I know you were incredulous for a long time about the fast solving speeds, and now you finally got one! What a great way to start the new year!
Thanks, LLapp!
I had no idea you would have seen my comments on that, and remembered me.
I love this thread. It's quite entertaining. Incidentally, I took someone's suggestion and went to youtube to see bansaisequioa's videos of his quick solves. That was enlightening and helpful.

Peel-n-stick name tags might help.

universalmom on 2014-05-27 06:09:23
Hahahaha…nice monty

maradnu on 2017-07-09 14:49:52
It's such a drag to try to read the name tags in our clothes while wearing them, and people get so upset if I take them off to look.

Nollij on 2017-10-21 07:35:38
We're getting a mini-education when blitz solving many of these.

Yikes. I must have done something wrong.

marnita on 2015-04-15 11:43:33
Does this go for women too, or just men?

I wear the face I keep in a jar by the door.

So the "L" stands for Eleanor?
