Re: The liar's bench

Some birds can live a long time, particularly cockatoos and the like. My Grandpa's grandparents were both born in the early 1820s, she died in the 1870s ( bowel cancer in believe) and he died a very old man in 1915. The point is they owned a cockatoo and after they passed away the bird whent to thei...

Autocorrect can really suck. A few years back a lass messaged me "hi sexy man" and for some damn reason autocorrect thought I meant to reply "hoe are you?", you just can't recover from stuff like that.

That said the result is not identical to the original and I guess that is likely due to different concentrations of esters and other various flavours in the faints than the original wash.
