B. Prop for DSL modem (so it won’t overheat)

hahahaha. You get a blue ribbon for that gem, Mz. Elizabeth. And I think Elizabeth’s creatively-funny reply deserves expansion and a party of fun-lovin’ contributors.

Below this post you’ll see information on the current failure of McCain’s cockeyed anti-supplement bill, which if it had passed, would have negatively affected every single thyroid patient out there who is trying to undo the damage done by T4 meds and/or the inane TSH lab test. So though we all won right now with this failure, you betcha we’re going to have to keep our eyes and ears open for the money-grubbing Big Pharma to influence someone else about supplements.
