I think it's time to dip the next new plants in potassium permanganate.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

In the USA, PP is also sold as "Clear water" in wal-mart.
