An Interview with HouseSurfing

Last updated: 11/1/2010
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
HouseSurfing:
Astroglide...."Second only to Nature" (manufactured by BioFilm, Inc.....gee maybe I should by some of their stock).
The Fool:
Are we alone in the universe? If not, where is everybody?
HouseSurfing:
What do you mean "everybody"? That presumes that there are other beings like us. I suspect there are life forms on other planets, around other suns (stars), that we wouldn't recognize.
The Fool:
What's your favorite Fool message board?
HouseSurfing:
Advanced Options.
