hummingwolf: Mathemagical animation made out of string. (Incredible String Thing)
This evening I listened to something on TV where one of the speakers was a man from somewhere in Africa (I forget where, alas). This was followed by a program where the main interviewee had a Texan accent, after which I tuned into the BBC World News. I now have no idea how to pronounce any word at all and may be reduced to trying to communicate via hand gestures and eyebrow twitches for the rest of the weekend.

You know how some shampoos use as their selling point the fact that they make your hair stronger? Did you ever see the ones where a long-haired woman could tie her hair to some large, heavy, immovable object and pull the thing apart as she walked away? Those advertisements really should warn you about the disadvantages of having non-brittle hair. How about when your long hair goes down the drain, wraps itself around random screws (or whatever jagged bits are in your plumbing) and cannot be easily removed because that hair simply refuses to break? Having to untie slimy knots of hair when you're trying to perform routine bathroom maintenance is really not my idea of fun, let me tell you.
