I don't know how to do the cool QUOTE thing so I'm responding to this quote...
Just to be clear-- my point of this thread is really to celebrate the things that people have accomplished.
Maybe you should have called the thread "10 things you have accomplished."
I apologize about messing up your thread--I had no intention of doing that.
Whip drew "first blood" by joking about GM asking for a bailout. How the hell can you joke about something that effects so many lives? Don't you understand how close this country is to being a second class nation again?
I wrote stuff that is/was cool to me--quite frankly, is it "cool" to talk someone out of committing suicide or is it "cool" to save a life? Or is it "human?" I had a husband and wife buying a car one time and they had a son who wanted a life-saver (I had a jar of them on my desk.) "Can I have one?" he asked. "Sure," said I. The kid started choking on the life-saver a few seconds later. They parents--now, they were cool. The man (a cop) cooly turned to his wife (a nurse) and said, "Do you want to get this one?" She answered, "Naw--go ahead." He cooly did the heimlich maneuver and popped the candy out of his son's throat. I have never seen two people (who obiously had the training and who had been through this before) act as "cool"--cool as in the definition of cool and calm. Now was it "cool" like the Fonz to do it? No.
And for the record, I love strippers--they are easy to talk to, always act interested and are usually pretty hot to look at. And no, I do not go to stripclubs because I will find love, etc. I go because I love to flirt and have fun with beautiful women who flirt and have fun back (as long as I have the bank-roll, that is.) Hell--I'm married and don't go anymore (but still love them.)
