Bah HAHaHAHAHA!!!!!! ubblol ubblol ubblol ubblol That is the funniest thing I have seen in a few days!!! Poor Shakespeare wink...

I have been finding myself in the back garage at the station lately. There I have found a length of rope I would say about nine feet or so. It has knots on either end for weight (actually I have no idea why the knots are really there but it works out for me!). I have been spinning this on my lunch break... The bad thing is that the rope leaves little blisters in my fore-fingers....
