I have a nearly-full jar of banana peppers that I am willing to trade for a good book (preferably theological). Just putting that out there.

seeing the collapse of one country wasn't enough for you?
Don't you realize by now that is not how they see it.  They see it as a birth of a new country.
Yeah, you don't get it either.

He came to me in a vision, and told me to watch Brewster's Millions, which of course I own on DVD (the 1985 version I mean). At first I was confused, but then I realized what he was saying: we shouldn't vote for "all of the above," but rather for "none of the above":

This offer is still on the table. A visual aid:



This is not the actual jar you would receive. In fact, this is a picture of a jar. The jar you will receive is the same brand and type and size however. Also, one other difference is that the jar you will receive has been opened, and 6-8 pepper rings removed for meal-related consumption. Otherwise they are the same.

That offer is very tempting, I really enjoy banana peppers.

Somehow this seems more believable to me after Breaking Bad made one of their main characters a DEA agent working in New Mexico who can't speak Spanish. Some people who should be able to understand the language just don't. *shrugs*  8)
