That should be either "And just what is this Osmosis, of which you speak?" or "And just who is this Osmosis, of whom you speak?"
I'm going to stop now. My brain hurts.

Touché Jim.

(English translation: Touch Jim... which doesn't sound good, I'll admit).

Yeah, I've used up my pedantry reserves too

Quebec is only Canadian because they are surrounded on 3 sides by Canada and one side by the US.

Since France gave the US the pretty green statue they only had one logical choice.

Je me souviens.

Since you all think I am a pedant then perhaps I need to rephrase that.
Quite alright Tim.

I can be quite pedantic myself.

Guess that means we're in good company.

Y'all are scaring me with those big ass fancy words.
Velveeta is the longest one I know, and lutefisk is the fanciest.
Caviar is fancier.

And somehow we just know it, somehow caught as if by osmosis.
Most of what I know I got by osmosis.

And sometimes a little leaks out the same way.

Well, maybe a lot does.

I remember learning about Osmoses in Sunday school.

Something about water, and tablets.

We have tablets today.

And now I need a drink of water, fresh from my well.

Ah, "Unsafe at Any Speed"...

I believe he whaled on the Beetle, too. In my late teens, I owned a beautiful old '64 Beetle. The only thing unsafe about it was my lack of driving experience...

Cars don't kill people.

People kill people.

And that is why I will not buy a K3.
