>> how long is a Euro?

There's no euro bill. (Starts at 5.)
It's a coin. Can't shrink. Ever.

PS Someone asked why I was dissing the dollar bill: it's really 6 1/8" and not 6".
My apology. Error fixed.

almostinfamous: you're so kind. But I'm afraid they already have your money.

Isn't "viperine snake" sort of like "snaky snake"? It really does drive the point home.

I saw part of Dodgeball on tv over the weekend. Now I want to see Blades of Glory.

And, naturally, I want to see IMPEACHMENT, the series.

Hey. Not all of us are familiar with the complete works of Rip Torn. The fragile psyche is still recovering from his disturbing Mailer episode.
