It's not junked up, but the inside does need cleaned.

TPBM has crashed a car.

No.

TPBM has been in the same room with something that's at least 1,000 years old.

I've been in the same room with rocks, do they count? I've probably been in the same room with old things other than rocks before, but probably not since I was in elementary school, so I don't remember.

TPBM does not think that the sentence Freckles doesn't like is actually a grammar infraction.

No, I think Freckles makes a very good point. 'need' needs a to + infinitive, i.e. "the car needs to be cleaned", or alternatively a noun: "the car needs cleaning". But just the past participle, that is unheard of, at least in my bright happy world.

TPBM is a longstanding member of the spelling/grammar police and is able to shed light on this issue. (read: Oly of the pink beard appear, I summon thee!)

Freckles knows more about the English language than is permissible. And my car still needs cleaning.

I have a furry light that needs to shed, does that count?

TPBM wants a furry light beside their bed.

No, I'd rather a watchful Bengal tiger.

TPBM will create the PBM VII thread because I just realized this thread has over 16,000 posts and that's way too many.

Nope, because I'm difficult.

TPBM thinks Freckles should do it.
