FREEBOOTER n.A common glitch in early PCs running Windows software. There was nothing between "Windows is starting up" and "Windows is shutting down" besides the agonized scream of the user.

Sauerkraut, Garo Yapremian, as it happens, came up in convesation last night with my brother and cousin.

Bear, I'll be pulling for you tomorrow. Do not be defeated.

JD, every man in a bar is a volunteer bouncer.

And no tip for the cocktail waitress, Ariel?

Nessa, it will not surprise me if Congress adds that stipulation.

Quilly, I've heard of this.

Funny, Pia. I'll bite, is that really what they're called?

Amoeba, why should we do all the thinking?

Ore corsairs of some type, Terry, there's no doubt.

Icy, you talk to everyone, don't you?
