You mean right to left. We read left to right.

avi - Doh! Which one's right again? Isn't it the one on the left side?

Thanks - I fixed it.

Always a pleasure to visit here.

You mean one can die from shooting themselves point blank in their head? Cool.

I am so glad I don't live in Japan or have to drive in Europe. I'm easily confused...

Kira said...

Do we get to make a list of those we would love to take this advice seriously?

PBS said...

A person would want to get that right and not screw it up.

NYD said...

The books, magazines and newspapers are like that too!

So are the bunnies!!

Grant said...

jgrrl - hopefully things have improved.

turnbaby - of course! Nothing but educational posts here.

tracy - suicidal children are always funny.

eotr - my blog is designed to reduce stress.

sj - only if you're very young. I'm sure you're immune. Try it and if I'm wrong I'll owe you a Coke.

mq - the driving thing is easy. After you ram several people head-on, just switch to another lane and see if it gets better.

kira - I'm betting your ex is on that list.

pbs - a few practice runs might help.

nyd - meaning they're all suicidal? Next j-bunny you see preparing to commit suicide, tell her that I'm a slightly better alternative to death.
