Yesterday my dad bought a 1.5 million candle-power flashlight. A bit like measuring cars in mouse-power. We tested it out, and mom and I are quite sure that a million and a half candles would make more light than that.
Mom, in a conversation about vegetarianism, fair treatment of animals, etc: "I would like to buy eggs from a farm that plays the Allelujah Chorus every time a chicken lays an egg. Into that chicken's particular headphones."
