    Shucks, now I really feel manipulated -- all these years they've been telling me my brain problems resulted from my thick skull losing the argument with the concrete basement floor. And only now the truth comes out. ;)

    Ahhh! Mike, it may not have been the concrete floor that you decided to head-butt then?....it was obviously covered in Toxic Dust....(The damn stuff gets everywhere)...could be a conspiracy in the Medical profession under a Government edict not to let on what Really happened....(Cue Twilight Zone Music).....

    Aside from toxic dust, computers have been proven to vaporize money in your wallet! Be careful! :D
