Nancy Drew said...

Oh, Nancy Drew, I may have misquoted...I thought I was using the word for "sticky stuff" you know, gecko's have sticky feet. We could have stillettoes with adhesion and climb tall buildings...

Hmmm, maybe I will start a Gecko farm, perform surgery on them, then when the adhesions are fully developed over time, I will hire a team of scientists (or pharamacists) to do genocide on the little Gecko community, and autopsy them, using the adhesions for research - perhaps we will find a cure for politicians. Slip 'em a bit o' geckoadhesia into their drinks.

Well, Diana, after all, politicians are stick-in-the-muds...
