Harrisburg has been an important transportation center since the days of riverboat traffic. Its western boundary is formed by the Susquehanna River. This location played an important part in its selection as the capital of Pennsylvania in 1812.

The flaw with your argument is that it isn’t the argument.

Stranger things have happened. Particularly in Malone


Dude, if someone pulls out a pizza cutter with needles and asks you to take out your penis, you’ve got more than nerve damage if you go along with the program. You need to sit down and have a talk with your brain. It is NOT pulling its weight in this relationship

if you are with someone who knows The One Right Way to do something, it shortly becomes necessary to stab them to death.

If anyone asks what you’re doing at my funeral, just say “I’m a penguin from the Internet from 2007.” My relatives will believe you.

I’ve looked into his ass.  He is a good man.

It seems like all the crazy bastards I’ve been cursing out on the roads for years are here in this newsgroup.

It may be easier for Acosta to physically negotiate the hike because the dog has more legs to distribute the weight (and *probably* more stamina than you), but it takes its toll in the dog’s mental well-being; with each step Acosta has to remember where the other 3 legs are in relation to the obstacles on the trail, so that it can place its next leg correctly.  In a famous experiment* a mature Labrador Retriever was led along a mountain path strewn with small rocks.  The dog was able to successfully navigate the path several times, and showed no sign of tiredness or mis-steps.  But when a marrow bone was shown briefly to the dog when it was in mid-stride, the dog would lose its foot placement concentration and trip on a stone in the trail.  The experiment was repeated several times with the same result. Unfortunately, the experimental work had to be discontinued after eight repetitions when the dog stumbled so badly that it fell off the mountain.  Canine confusion experiments were never funded again.
