You aren't seriously trying to claim to be an oasis of sanity in a sea of madness are you?

A page of sanity in a novel of madness?
An orange of sanity in a fruitbowl of madness?
A URL of sanity in a webpage of madness?
An object of sanity in an inventory of madness?
A gun of sanity in an arsenal of madness?
A vector graphic of sanity in a 3D polygon of madness?
A cherry of sanity on a tree of madness?

EDIT I could do this all day if I didn't have to go out to a client right now.

You have no idea how much grief the money laundering regulations bring into my work. They have no de minimis limit

de minimis is a technical term meaning, "if it's below this amount don't worry about it" Under money laundering rules not only is a 1p problem technically reportable (say a shopkeeper gives 1p under in change) but theoretically if I could reasonably be aware of it and don't report it I could actually go to prison.

Truly the law is a ass. (not a typo. That's how Dickens wrote it)

The southern coastline is terribly exploited. Hotels all over and pretty crowded with Scandinavians and Brits who desperately need some sun. But we did have a wonderful time. I'll post some pictures later on.

I understand a little since the new regulations caused by the Enron debacle hit the plant I work at a few years back. We are not allowed any fluidity in our stock counts whatsoever due to the fact we are a public company. We have to account for every cylinder housing (I work in an aluminum machining department for Briggs and Stratton) and there is hell to pay if our scrap/finished parts count do not add up to the stock used/stored count.

Ahhh, sun! Glad you had a good one. But yeah, any beach you go to in the world, I swear us Brits just take it over. All you can see is pasty skin and huge beer guts. I've got the first, but still working on the second.

Doesn't seem so, why hasn't the Thread yet reached 15000 posts?
I read that it was supposed to reach that goal by Christmas.

But one thing is sure, it will never die, hahhahhaa!

I just realised we forgot to say Happy Birthday to Jesus this year. Do you think it warrants a "Happy Belated birthday" thread? He'll be terribly upset right now, I know.
