Anyone remember in Shrek when Donkey is trying to create a wall, to lock Ahrek into his swamp. That was nifty!
Minka forgot to say First! Now, see, that's throwing me off. I need for her to write: First!
Jeez! I hafta do everything myself.
Ahem. Boundary. Okay, I got nothin'. It's too early to claim that all the good comments have been taken. What to do, what to do?
I'm on the edge here. Trying to choose between heads and tails, but focusing on the rippled edge instead.
Good fences make good neighbors.
Boundary: I'm sure I've crossed it at least once or twice. It's a bridge, right?

You don't mind scootching back just for a second do you?

bsczuojr: because, bonjour!

BOUNDARY, n. Where they used to put books together. Sure, when they were in operation, they were called bindaries. But this is the computer age, eh? You going to send me a copy of that .pdf?

Boundary: Only distantly related to Bindery.
Boundary? Nope, no idea. Is that one of thoese things there for "other people"? Like rules?

Minka, if I read you right the only people who can rightly claim a national identity live on Islands?
TLP, it's always tails.
Robert, mend your walls and the neighbor in the cellar will get you, anyway.
More of a moat, Sar. Still, I bet you've crossed it.
Wow, Poobah, that's right. The universal border.
Mo'a, I can think of a couple there ought to be.
Icsay ransittay loiragay, Jamie D!
G, good one. I think you can be more specific, though. One woman's boundary is another man's hurdle.
Logo, I beg your pardon!
Amoeba, spelling is over the line.
Clever, Karma, Queen of all she surveys.
Ariel, great definition. Maybe even true.
Amoeba, you can get it at bindery.com. Suddenly I expect that site exists. I never suspected it existed before.
Jim, do you think it's related to Bonds, too?
Morgan, you can find one near Switzerland.
Actonbell, you can be more passive aggressive than that: Put a bucket filled with clippers next to the sidewalk on your lawn, next to the bush and the sidewalk with a sign "take one." OK, maybe I can be more passive-aggressive than that.

Mireille, that which the shrinks has brought together probably could do with some duct tape as well.
Theresa, in my experience man imagines little else.

I like that update.
Doug, nope. Last time in Switzerland they just waved my car through and never acknowledged any kind of "boundary.
Minka, I bet Ode to Joy is next.
Who waved you through, Morgan? That's what I thought. Bet no one waved you into France.
