The other night I was watching a TV quiz. The question was to name any word that ended 'ium'. Radium, uranium, all the usual suspects came up - but nobody said 'handwavium'!

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense
