Stays fresh for up to 5 years without refrigeration!
(If Elvis were alive today, he'd be dead.)

Elvis won't die. He's raised from the dead and will come back.
> He's raised from the dead and will come back.
Must have been a tough childhood.
What would Elvis be doing if he were alive today?
Scratching at the inside of his coffin.
What *is* Elvis doing these days, then?
Thanks, folks, I'll be here all week!

That's a great thread, by the way.
wSV, I had no idea you were a rock star :)
Now I know why you are so insane. You are insane, you know.

In that thread, Spinoza said:
"Perhaps rock starts do exists, but the reason why they don't contract more often - there aren't many contracting gigs with good spiritual pay scales."
Right now, I get paid somewhat above average, and I wish I made more money, but what I get in return is trust. That's the spiritual attraction to wherever I work. I have to make my bosses understand that I can't always work balls to the wall, that some days, sometimes at least one day a month I will call in at the last moment and not come to work, I'm late most of the time (I come to work at 9:15, no earlier).
It takes a while to build that kind of relationship. So contracting is probably not a good idea for me.

"wSV, I had no idea you were a rock star :) "
right. <g> for any definition of rockstar that includes 'lazy bastard', Im your man.
do you think someone will give me a pay rise?
"Now I know why you are so insane. You are insane, you know."
seriously? Ive felt insane for years. I dont think anyone else knows. Thats a very lonely place to be.
OTOH, Im not sure that a web forum is the best place to get a diagnosis, so Ill remind myself that you may be wrong.
