Approaching 16,000 comments

I got busy and missed the 15,000 comment mark, so I want to make up for it now. Whoever posts the 16,000th comment wins a prize. That mark will be reached either today or tomorrow, depending on the comments.

To give you a comment worth debating, I ask: What is the craziest (but printable) piece of grafitti you've seen scrawled inside a bar/restaurant/club bathroom? Go!

Many years ago there was a bit of poetry on the bathroom wall of the bar at the MIA. Can't remember the name of the bar. You know, the one with the Creation of Life replica on the ceiling... Anyway, the poem talked of purple feathers and it was such a bittersweet image. Like faded pictures of a costume party with friends you never see anymore. I always meant to copy it down. But when I went back with a pen and paper it had been painted over.

My personal favorite was this little philosophical bit...

"If you could, would you? And if you did, how would you do it?"
Scrawled under it, a poetic response...
"Who gives a F***?"

Shortly after Dick Cheney went quail hunting years ago. In the Mitchell Courthouse. 4th fl by the elevators i think...

Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. The parasite infects most genera of warm-blooded animals, including humans, but the primary host is the felid (cat) family. Animals are infected by eating infected meat, by ingestion of feces of a cat that has itself recently been infected, or by transmission from mother to fetus. Cats have been shown as a major reservoir of this infection.

Up to one third of the world's population is estimated to carry a Toxoplasma infection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that overall seroprevalence in the United States as determined with specimens collected by the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES) between 1999 and 2004 was found to be 10.8%, with seroprevalence among women of childbearing age (15 to 44 years) of 11%.

During the first few weeks, the infection typically causes a mild flu-like illness or no illness. After the first few weeks of infection have passed, the parasite rarely causes any symptoms in otherwise healthy adults. However, people with a weakened immune system, such as those infected with advanced HIV disease or those who are pregnant, may become seriously ill, and it can occasionally be fatal. The parasite can cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and neurologic diseases and can affect the heart, liver, and eyes (chorioretinitis).


Go home dad, you're drunk

Here I sit broken-hearted,

Did you hear about the constipated mathmetician?
He worked it out with a pencil.
