Well, we all know that the milliHelen is the amount of beauty required to launch a single ship, but I now share with you my personal numerical prefixes..

Amount of joy, equal to one-hundredth of Christmas Morning = 1 centiClaus

Very, very, very small amount of mint = 1 femtoMento

An even smaller amount of feline = 1 yoctopuss

One-tenth of Lucille Ball’s husband = deciDesi

A quadrillion (billiard for some folks) animal rights activists = 1 petaPETA

A septillion (quadrillion for some folks) photographs of various legumes = 1 yottobeanpictures

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Why does spellcheck hate me?
GO HERE
Those who wish to fight, must now about eternal might. The blue skies turn red, Maybe it’s time you fled? Why wait for the army to strike when you know you don’t need to fight? Aren’t I right? The flower will bloom, and after the blue skies turn red, out comes your doom.
GO HERE….or else…My pets wont grow
