OK  I did a site search and was shocked that this topic has not been covered!

I don't see how this forum can continue until this question is solved.!!!    OK  OK  I've been called goofy before.  I'll get it started.

Because the map is not the territory!

I'm sorry Leah, it's facebook's fault! My page was down all day today (for maintenance, whatever the heck that means!) and I had to do something to feed my addiction!

For some reason the chicken picture makes me laugh. Reminds me of a blurb on 'the onion' about a free range chicken making it all the way to bolivia...or something like that.......can't quite put my finger on why I thought it was so funny......but it makes me chuckle everytime i think about it.

Yesterday I crossed the road because my neighbor was raking the lawn and, of all things, BAGGING the leaves.  I took my wheelbarrel and pitchfork with me.

Are you sure there was actually a chicken there? I need you to show me the white paper that was peer reviewed and scientifically done before we can have any discussion about the possibility of this actually happening.
