    The strong taking advantage of the weak. Drives me crazy. To the point that I often just can't stand it and say or do things I shouldn't. If you're strong, it's your responsibility to look out for the weak.

    Hunting for sport. Especially if you don't eat the meat. Killing for fun.

    Rap music. Especially Gangsta rap. Yeah, I know. Poetry of the streets. Bleech.

    Religious arguments or discussions where parties think their way is the only way.

    Arrogance.

    Oh, and you guys and gals who think golf is boring are right. If you don't know anything about it, it's as boring as watching paint dry. But a golf swing is the closest thing to a baseball swing I know, and that was enough to get me hooked after baseball was over for me.

    Actually golf to 62 is probably like fishing is to me.

    Here's another one. Women who profess a desire to be self-sufficient from men, while hoping with all their being that their man will blow two months' salary on a diamond for them.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I've read these list and the thought occurred to me that this could explain some scores on "How weird are you".

    Nor mine. Admittedly though, ours was a decision based in maecroeconomics (the micro referring to the economics inside chili's wallet) rather than ethics.

    You mean that "rule of thumb" promoted by jewelers?

    Same for me, RFS62. Bought those Mizuno MX23's that I had talked to you about. Great clubs, but the forged heads have been an adjustment for me. Still like my Callaway X-14's when it's cold.

    And I like to fish, too, TC! :gac:

    Re: Your "I just don't get it" list

    I just don't get:

    The Simpsons
    Lord of the Rings
    Harry Potter (books and/or movies)
    Low/no carbs
    Eggnog
    Mean people
    Arrogant people

    I especially don't get why an engaged couple, who own a house together and have lived in it for years, need to register for every possible kitchen appliance when they get married. (Actually, I don't get a lot of the registration stuff when it comes to weddings and babies.)

    And I certainly don't understand men.
