[FONT color=#007f40]The nickname WS is associated with the smell of heavy machinery oil. But I don't know if you have any connection to heavy machinery of any sort, be it those used in manufacturing plants or auto engines. [/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40][/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40]One second please... [/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40][/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40]Ah yes, the auditory plane is confirming the olfactory: I'm also hearing machine sounds. [/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40][/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40]And the third confirmation comes from the tactile plane: I'm touching a cold metal bar, which is part of a larger structure. [/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40][/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40][/FONT]

[FONT color=#007f40]Maybe I should get some sleep... [/FONT]

people think that pitbulls...boxers...bulldogs...all have what is called lock jaw.  In fact..they do not...it is jaw strength and tenacity that keeps the dog hanging onto whatever it is that they are hanging onto..

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten, thereby proving for once and all cats are smarter than dogs.

It's a year today since I registered with DS - I was just checking the stats and was surprised to come across this fact.
