  1. Not sure why, but this reminds me of "I'm a taxidermist. A taxidermist doesn't drive a taxi, I mount animals"

    Bartender to regular crowd "It's awright boys, he's one of us!"


  2. Have to agree with Detlef on that.

     

    Also, if Sandusky has any class & any true remorse, he would just kill himself now.

     

    Whenever I think about this case, and others like it, it reminds me of the movie "Sleepers." It depicts in no uncertain terms what the victims go through, how their lives are changed & warped forever. If you haven't seen it, you owe it yourself to watch it.


  3. Hey Big John, you are among our best & brightest. If I ever win the lottery and start my own company, you would be the first person I would try to hire. (Well, maybe the second, but I'm pretty sure my wife wouldn't let me hire Rosie Jones anyway)


  4. I think Phillips will end up in the Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson class, as far as success goes. He is the one winner whose concert I would pay to go see right now. I think he has a big future ahead of him. The right person won this year. :clap:

  5. Glad to hear she is OK.

     

    Same thing almost happened to me, years ago when I was about 19 or 20. I worked graveyard shift in South Lake Tahoe, and after work decided to drive down to the Bay Area (about 3-1/2 hours). About halfway there, I was in the fast lane doing about 75, and the next thing I knew I was driving off the shoulder of the road after going through 5 lanes. I barely avoided slamming into a fence and was able to get back to safety, but another second or two and it would've been ugly. I have never driven while that tired again.


  6. I met virtually all of the NBA players and coaches (and sportswriters) from the mid 1980's to the mid 1990's. The most memorable conversations were with George Karl and Frank Layden (one of the funniest guys I've ever met).


  7. I've bought tix from Stubhub at least 10 times with no problems at all. Also have sold tix a few times, also with no problems, well other than the commission, but it was worth it for the convenience.
