When I've heard recordings of conversations I've had (on video, or elsewhere), I'm startled by the way I sound. Not my voice, I'm used to that. What hits me in the face is the way I'll blurt out something that has nothing to do with the conversation at hand. Even more surprising, those around me don't say, "WTF, dude, where did THAT come from?" The explanation for these out-of-nowhere exclamations is in the way my brain works. I mentally hopscotch from one topic to the next fairly quickly internally, until I happen upon something that I think others might want to hear, and we go from talking about tennis shoes to me remarking on the Blizzard of '78.
It happened on a different plane this weekend. I was at Big Lots with The Other Half, and saw that they had Oxydol on sale. I picked the bottle up because a) we needed laundry detergent, b) It had a logo that looked new, and c) my friend and contributor Stupid Monkey Planet has been warning me about using products with animal-testing corporations behind them. I was looking at the label, sure that this was a product of one of the offending companies. Instead, I saw that it was made by "CR Products," a company I've never heard of.

Cleaning a skull is an easy process and can be no more unpleasant than pulling meat off a cooked soup bone. Here is how to clean a skull for display or study. . .
