Splains why he hasn't posted in awhile.

The appleholics must have sliced him up.

Well, you could argue that he's never been OK.

I think he took a job with Apple.

Where is joyglen? I'm sure he will figure out a way place fault with Florida residents about this giant eye ball. Was probably a Florida resident that killed whatever animal that it came from.

Remember that mysterious, gigantic blue eyeball that washed up on a Florida beach Oct. 10 and captivated the ever-curious Internets? You know, the one that looked about as big as a softball? A biology professor at Duke University, Sönke Johnsen, may have solved the riddle about what type of creature the eye belonged to. In an email to a colleague, Johnsen wrote, "I'm fairly sure it’s just the eye of a large scombrid, likely a swordfish or marlin. They get seriously big, but people don’t realize it because most of the eye is inside the head." Mystery solved! Let's just hope we don't have any more nightmares about the massive (and massively creepy) thing. [Source]
