    You wanna buy an asterisk? What's your long term goal? What is your budget? That will give me a realistic expectation on how to help. I do not recommend clear coat asterisks. When using one in a sentence, don't overload the asterisk with too many words. If you do, it puts too much strain on the asterisk. It's used to mark printed or written text, typically as a reference to an annotation or to stand for omitted matter. Did you use it to omit some matter? Did you find your matter not worthy?

    it's a karma -- I'm pretty sure.
    I am in with 71.
    or e, if irrational numbers are allowed.

    Asterisks* come in really handy.

    Lucky for him he didn't want to buy an italic typeface or letter. You have a monopoly on that and could charge as much as you want.

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Yes, incubating. Russ inadvertently feeds it a steady diet of cracker crumbs. Reproduces like yeast.

    Why, of course, you'll be left with a semicolon -- and, for the rest of your life, you'll have to punctuate into a rubber bag.

    I remember that bon mot from National Lampoon from the seventies -- man.

    PS and if I mistook your comment for jest, my sincere and humble apologies! :(
