But about half of all FJs do just that.

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Just because they don't call it a desert doesn't mean it's not desert. Parts of the country receive considerably less than 10" of rain per year. But mainly I'm pissed I didn't think of Lebanon.
Well, Beirut gets 80 days of rain in the month of November alone. So there.

It's only fair since I spent a weekend there one day.

That's still half of what Vancouver gets. (Which is half again of Seattle, averaging a whole week of rain every day)

But that's just the average. Some days have more than 2.7 days; other days have less.

I interpreted "squeeze hit" to mean it was played on an accordion. :oops:

I didn't think that exactly, but when Lebanon crossed my mind briefly, I did think there was a chance the country wasn't Arabic-speaking, so was left to neg with my instaguess placeholder of Kuwait.
There are times I almost think I am not sure of what I absolutely knooooooooo-OW
