I wondered if your people developed a culture that is not Touchy-Feely because of a host of easily transmitted diseases.

I looked at your Location.
Ireland? Irish people are Touchy-Feely.

Irish People Hug.
No? Why not?

I don't want to be forced to Hug People.

It is so funny to me.

The Irish that made it across the Ocean are a Touchy-Feely bunch, sometimes.

I have read accounts of many people that hear a far off song.
It is only in their heads, unless they hum it or something.

With iPods, We have the song we want at the decibels we desire At All Times.
Except when taking a shower or a bath or swimming?

Does someone have a water proof iPod?
Their underwater worlds are like U-Tube videos?
How nice. And; How strange.

I've spent a lot of years hanging around Salmonella and E.coli at work and never gotten sick so I'm sort of cavalier when it comes to diseases.

The Native Irish tend towards handshakes and the old clap on the shoulder.

I have a friend who got head-butted in the mouth by a drunken guy
"Welcome to Dungarvan" he said.

I have some ancestors that were Spanish fishermen, some that were English stonemasons and some Spellmans (make of that what you will)

Buenos días,

Gracias, que eran muy dulce. Soñaba con agua fresca, protector solar y aloe vera. Purrrr. Tan agradable en mis patitas. No se olvide de las patas! Creo que necesito un sombrero grande. Éste no cubre las orejas.

Google translate can be funny. I wrote Thank you, the dreams were sweet. I dreamed of fresh water, sunscreen, and aloe vera. Purrr. It feels so nice on my feet. Don't forget the feet! I think a need a bigger hat. This one doesn't cover my ears. When I change it back to english, it is nothing like what I wrote. Feet are legs...you would think it would be exactly the same. Weird, can anyone explain?

You know, the problem with that check is that it doesn't only impact Verizon. Having worked in banking (as a teller, check processing (imaging and data entry of deposits), deposit operations, and account research), I can say this check would cause some waves, and potentially not be acceptable. The "legal line" needs to be in plain words so as to avoid an issue with an ambiguous or illegible amount box. If you can't read either, the check is worthless and would be returned as illegible. If the depositing bank accepted it (either by figuring out the formula, a long shot, or by just blindly accepting the amount on the deposit slip (this happens more than most people would feel comfortable with, yay for minimum wage data entry and processing clerks!)), there is no guarantee the Feds or the paying bank would accept it. There are many points at which this check would be rejected. I suppose ultimately it would be Verizon's responsibility to get a legible check, but it would definitely raise some eyebrows along the way. Hell, even if it somehow made it all the way through and got paid out of Randall's account, Randall could very easily dispute the amount and cause even more ruckus.

On the plus side, it would be the talk of the bank employees for years to come.
