    By getting them drunk on Bay Rum.

    Which reminds me ... does anyone know how many tourists get brought to emergency rooms in the Caribbean each year after buying Bay Rum and thinking it's a beverage?

    She told them that when she finished weaving a big tapestry then she would choose a new husband from among the suitors. She’d weave all day, but then at night when no one was watching would undo all her day’s work. She was prolonging the hope that her husband Odysseus would return before she had to re-marry.
