Heh, I figured that would go quickly but was worth a try.

btw, I'm not an area 51 guy, so the obvious connection is a predisposed bias on your part.
I assumed you might live there since you used to be a grey skinned alien.

Kurdt wins another week in Death Valley! WooHoo!!!
Are you trying to get rid of me

I was rather hoping for a weeks invasive surgery in the secret facilities at Groom Lake.

Grey, yeah, but the Roswell aliens are all Republicans.

That pretty much puts an end to the idea of Alien intellegence.

I'll piggyback on Evo's thread:

Ok---What is it?

Damn too late. I think Evo would enjoy a trip to death valley. She can keep me company for a week.

Nope, I grew up with pomegranites, 'tis the season. A harder picture might have been leaving the white membrane over the seeds.

A bit of etymological trivia about the pomegranate: most everyone knows that the word is derived from the latin pomum granatum (apple with many seeds), through the late French pomme grenade (which, doubtless, you are all aware was the origin of the word 'grenade'), but how many of you know that the botanical name of the pomegranate tree (Punica granatum) is the only biological name that has one specific type of bad grammar - the gender of the adjective does not agree with the gender of the noun (it should instead be Punica granata)?

Woohoo!!! Did I ever tell you that I can make a knife and spearhead out of a harmonica?

I'm watching Survivorman right now. I'm learning how to live in the mountaintops in winter with only a camera in my backpack. I think the camera turns into a microwave oven.

Damn, I spelled pomegranate wrong, looks like Gokul has to come to death Valley with kurdt and I to make sure we don't make spelling and grammatical errors.

If i don't bring a harmonica you won't need a knife or spearhead . Unfortunatley I missed most of the survival programs here so I think I won't survive.

Wasn't it Persephone that had to spend a a month each year for every pomegranate seed she ate while in Hades? Which explains winter.

"Persephone (Proserpine) was a daughter of Zeus and the Greek fertility goddess
Demeter (Ceres). Hades (Pluto) condemned Persephone to eternity in the underworld,
because she had eaten the forbidden fruit (pomegranate seeds). She was allowed to
return to the surface of the earth for part of the year. Persephone was also
a personification of spring."

Yes, it was Persephone. She was the Ancient Greeks' groundhog!
