verb. That contition which befalls an individual or group which, being engorged by the consumtion of a large, rich or heavy meal, must recline so that the meal may digest.

As in "The entire family had to pythonate for hours after the Thanksgiving meal".

I used to refer to this state as a "digestive torpor". But I like Pythonate much better.

50 dollars is 50 dollars.... to watch out for those old folk. They can have a vindictive streak in them:

Morris and his wife, Esther went to the state fair every year. Every year, Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that Helicopter."

Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

A few years later, Esther and Morris went to the fair. Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance.

Esther replied, "Morris, that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple. He said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word, I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars. "

Morris and Esther agreed --- and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvres, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris, he said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"

Morris replied, "Well, I was going to say something when Esther fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars.

A neat online video editing and publishing tool.

I put this together using clips and music available on the site, but you can also upload and mix your own video with fades and other special effects. Best bit is you can then publish it right to your blog, or download it for your iPod, or email it to a friend or send it direct to their mobile phone.

Totally cool, as my son would say...
