  1. Shallow thoughts:

    I'm the reason the rum is always gone.

    It wasn't a design flaw but a physics fail.

    To amuse me is your purpose in life.

    Non sequiturs do not follow, logically.

    Two wrongs don't make a right, but 3 lefts do.

    It might've happened differently, but it didn't.

    I should go to bed. Nah.

  2. Mason Jars, also commonly known as glass canning jars, jam jars, fruit jars, & Ball jars

    All of them are now made by the same company in the U.S.

    Used mainly to hold & preserve foods, especially fruits & vegetables ("canned")

    Made of transparent glass to see the contents. Free Masons - often considered a secret fraternity/organization.

    Ball & Kerr (pronounced like car, but often mispronounced as 'care') are common U.S. brands of mason jars.

    Many people enjoy home canning, but it requires you to follow careful rules.

    Mason jars are used for canning in order to preserve foods.

    Air is removed during processing (creating an anaerobic environment)

    Modern jars use screw-on rings/bands that are reusable (until they get rusty, fyi)

    and flat lids with a sealant to keep the vacuum

    Ball State University, named for the Ball brothers of Ball Canning fame

    David Letterman, famous alumnus of Ball State, late-night comedy

    And the title? Maison - i, Raj reversed = Mason Jar

  3. You got me. =P

    EDIT: But I totally put Thalia in the Solved poll.


    HAHAHAHAHA! No worries. :lol:

    But I seriously needed that laugh. (FYI, writing an employee training manual from scratch is boring as heck!) :P

    Better luck next year. :)

  4. I believe MoMa. At least about the 2nd part. So I guess we'll go with ... Oh my!

    ... how nice ...

    (FYI, if there's a tie, I'm totally giving it to someone who manages to work the 'Oh my!' in. *Inside joke* that will have me laughing all day. Please try. :lol: )

  5. Wow. No, I mean seriously. WOW!

    There are orders of magnitude, and then there's the sheer size of it, the enormity of love & responsibility that hits you like a ton of bricks.

    How does someone so small manage to make your heart feel so big? Even when you're *just* an aunt! :wub:

  6. The "original" version, if you want to give it a go:

    By many names yet made by one

    I keep what grows under the sun

    Though secretive I am not

    We'll have a ball, but -have a care!

    Suspended, nigh unchanging

    (In use, you cannot breathe in here)

    I've been screwed over many times

    My lips are sealed up tight

    Because of me, many learn

    And some laugh at the night
