    That photo of that scorpion makes me want to pull off its big fat pincers.

    OK, will someone please explain to me exactly what this holiday is about? What can we do and not do?

    If you’ve never had Raclette fresh off the burner you have yet to ascend to that place known as [i<]Le ciel du fromage[/i<]

      That’s not a raclette set! How can you call a set of mini shallow-bottom fondue pots a raclette? Where’s the grill?

      By fresh off the burner, do you mean when a bit of cheese slips off the raclette pan and lands directly on the electric element while you vainly try to snatch it quickly enough before it chars, but of course don’t succeed, then stubbornly, without delay, gluttonously pop it into your mouth, all the while convincing yourself how awesomely quick your reflexes are and how good the resulting morsel of charred cheese is, despite the ash you’re currently masticating?

    Wonder how much the Switch will impact gaming laptop sales. I only mention that due to the $9000 laptop in this list.

    I don’t know that I even need my gaming laptop with 960m anymore. Its a decent machine, but I only lugged it around to get decent gaming in hotel rooms. No need anymore since I have a Switch.

    I have a DS Lite too, but those games are nothing compared to Zelda on the Switch. Sure, its portable gaming, but at a much smaller scale.

      Almost pulled one of [url=https://xkcd.com/1656/<]these[/url<] with that story. 😉

      Imagine how many scorpions they would have to milk to produce enough for one bowl of cereal. Is scorpion milk lactose free?

        had no idea they even had nipples.
