So there's truth to the urban legend then? (And also the Seinfeld episode.) I guess if we need more caps we can head down to the emergency room?

Very quick to criticize another language. Someone in China may find a space reference to be prestigious and not have studied American juvenile slang. I see it is popular here.

I don't think that is the intention at all... Uranus is funny and always has been and will continue to be.

The main point is the quality of the caps.

Also, it seems these may be made in India and not China? Not that it matters...

Disney probably has the copyright to Pluto all sewed up -- so Uranus it was!

Having worked in law enforcement in Chicago, I can tell you that ER doctors have endless stories about this. Cops, too.

I'll leave it with that.
