When "Being Green" takes on a different meaning

I'd heard before about green blood and green urine, but now- green sweat? I know the whole world is going greener these days, but really!

Information on Spock...right, right....sulfhaemowhatever....neat, I didn't know that....

The man had needed urgent surgery because he had developed a dangerous condition in his legs after falling asleep in a sitting position.

Oh great. And I can't even sit bolt upright in bed worrying about it because I might fall asleep like that and develop a dangerous condition. In my legs.

But at least my not-knowing-Spocks-medical-history anxiety has been eased.

Also, green sweat: Viral?

There is $15,140 of fake money in your standard Monopoly game. That means if you lose the bet you will have to purchase 67 games, which will run you $736.33 on Amazon.com before mail-in rebate.

I would act now while you can still get free holiday shipping.

Sheesh.... this might be the case example of where "going green" is just taken too seriously! =)

$15,140 per game? Then no, what's needed is 66 billion games of monopoly.

I doubt Amazon can manage to provide the equivalent of ten games of monopoly to everyone on the planet.

And there's little doubt it'll qualify for supersaver shipping at any time of the year.

Maybe he had copper veins put in. I've been thinking of doing that too, but now I dunno.

Or you can just print your own Monopoly money. Look at me, I'm the Federal Reserve!

Now the rest of you know what it's like to be Irish.

What? No, I don't sweat green. I sweat, bleed, and pee Jamison.

I've actually heard of green sweat before. I work for a major manufacturer of agricultural implements and am told that paint department employees that fail to wear their respirators for several years will eventually start to sweat green. Consequently, they are now very serious about making sure these people wear their respirators.
