Seems like a common expression the news people use is ( we are screwed or screw you) . What is your thought as to what the meaning is? I always thought it was something sexual. :hide: :cboy:

Seismologists have discovered that there is 1 quadrillion tons of diamonds embedded in the Earth's mantle 100 miles beneath the surface. That's 100,000 tons of diamonds for each person on Earth.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

I don't fit into either group! Nearest Wal-Mart is closer to 20 miles (though you can go 20 miles in any direction and find one)

Minnesota State Fair runs for 10 days. Yesterday they set a record for paid attendance with 270,472 people.
That's like everyone from 5 different cities with populations of 50,000+ people all showing up on the same day!

Today is the last day of the fair. Attendance on the other 8 eight days ranged from 120,000 - 250,000

Hang in there. Walmart will come to you. Once we didn't have any.

OR with ice caps melting the ocean will come to you through the St Lawrence Seaway and you'll be living sea side
in a beach house, kayaking to your local Wal-Mart EZ to pick up some Purina Otter Chow for your new house pets out
there in Western Michigan.

I use to live 43 miles from the Pacific Ocean now it is about 400 miles away. WalMart..... To the West it is around 300 miles. To the South it is a 5 1/2 hour drive. To the North.... you can't go North from here. The Blue Mountains and Hells Canyon are in the way. To the East I guess there is one 90 miles or so. The real good thing is all those people don't live anywhere around here.
