Today's special: if you want to at least feel how we feel today, just get sick and throw up

Is the drake shake passage the entire way back, or is it just the first day, and after that it's a nice ride?

Is that more interesting than how many did the polar plunge?

I just found a new supply of forks!

I did indeed. Should be used for enhanced interrogation methods.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Went into complete shock. Couldn't move a limb. One of the dumber things I've done in my days.

Probably should have gone feet first rather than head first, but I'd never have gone under if I slowly went in.

The plunge wasn't dumb but head first was. Who's idea was that?
