I am getting close to 7,000 posts. I hope to make it before New Years. The only problem is that when I am on break (as in the up coming Christmas break) I tend to be around a computer less often and post less often. I am gonna have to pick it up a bit. Some one needs to engage me in an intense debate that ends with us both being "moderated".  :D

I have to agree with you there. That show produced real humor, unlike much the drivel we see around now days. If I hear one more person tell me that The Hangover was an amazing movie, I am gonna puke.

We could debate which parody of Star Wars was the best. I say Spaceballs. Thumb Wars was also good, but not nearly as good as Spaceballs, and it's way too short.

Nope, nope, nope.  There's an internet video out there somewhere.  I think it's called Troopers.  It is simultaneously a parody of both Star Wars and Cops.

I like that parody of Alien toward the end of Spaceballs. Mel Brooks even managed to get John Hurt to reprise his role in the chest burster scene. That was funny. :laugh: "Oh, no! Not again!"

Nutella = Chocolate, Hazelnut, sugar, skim milk (not necessarily in order of composition; I think the spread is something like 63% sugar).  MMMMMMMM.

A decade and a half ago, I bought a whole bunch of these CD sleeves.  I just ran out of 'em today.  They're made especially for music CDs.  You can see the little slit up top where the "edge" of the jewel case paper goes.  Makes for nice perusing in the box.  And a hundred of these can fit in a box that only accomodates a few dozen jewel boxes.  (In case anyone is wondering, I recycled every one of the jewel cases I discarded; didn't throw away a single one, I don't think.) 

Anyway, I'll be darned if I can find these anymore.  Every search turns up hundreds, if not thousands, of links (of course).  But everything I've found is designed for computer CDs, and just doesn't have the assortment of features I'm after.

I'm open to all suggestions, including "You shouldn't spend your time on earthly pursuits", or "You should downsize your collection", or whatever.  Most cool, of course, would be "Oh, I bought a batch of these last week.  Just go to cdsleeves.com"  (Actually, maybe I should try that.  After I post.)

You, sir, are a steely-eyed missile man.  (Five bonus points for naming the movie.)  However, I am not, and am unable to duplicate your results.  I even went directly to BestBuy.com, and several searches were fruitless.  Interestingly, their search engine "knew" I was overseas (I know from the banner ad across the top), so perhaps I got different results, even using the same search.  (Yes, I know it makes no sense, but I'm just trying to make sense of this crazy world.)

Call me stupid (but in a PM; you'll get warned for doing it in here), but I'm still striking out.
