Default Re: What is happening

Now a little more about dead skin,

Years ago, Kirby vacuum cleaner salesmen would do in-home demonstrations. They had an attachment that connected to the vacuum instead of the bag. It had a plastic window and held a piece of filter paper, much like today's coffee filters. They would vacuum your mattress to show what came off your body while you slept and ended up in your mattress, even after vacuuming with a "lesser quality" vacuum. If the salesman had a strong enough stomach, he would light the filter paper and its contents from your mattress. Trust me, the stench is quite sickening, unbelievably so.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
