Can you help? I have a rock'n roll mattress.
I bought an IKEA twin bed, Hemnes is the name. It has some curved wood slats that fit on it to hold the box spring under the mattress. The curve is an upward curve. So I can't find a box spring to fit over it because most box springs have boards...

Any fans of the Ernest movies? Which rednect comedian could play Ernest today?
I think the Ernest movies might translate well to a new generation. Jim Varney was wonderful in the role. But there have been several James Bonds, so why not a new Ernest based on the character originally created for and played by Jim Varney? My own...

Have you known someone whose nose was so far in the air it could be picked up on a weather map?
Snotty, snobbish and superior people surrounded me in my youth. Sometimes I still meet one or two. They can be annoying, insulting and infuriating. But sometimes, with the passage of enough time, they can also be funny. It really is quite amazing ho...

Should a parent who does not molest his/her child but only threatens to do so go to prison?
This is assuming the threat to sexually molest the child was spoken to the child in a serious, threatening manner, in secret, of course, not in front of anyone but the child. I realize that under those circumstances it would be difficult to convict a...
