    Yeah, just yesterday I was on the phone with a "Justin" from Dell tech support... Something tells me that it wasn't his given name....

    This might surprise a lot of you who know me - but I like fake boobs.

    I know, I know, shocking.

    At first I wouldn't leave my house. I mean, why leave when I can sit in front of the mirror and play.

    But now I've learned that play time shouldn't take up more than 2 to 3 hours per day and I can be outside in those other hours.

    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

    One of my biggest pet peeve's is the incorrect apostrophe. As in, "I like the Cincinnati Red's." Or, "Austin Kearn's played for the Louisville Bat's."

    I also don't like when people end a statement with an inappropriate question mark? As in, "I hope this answers your question?" Or, "I heard you bought a new car?"

    I remember when I was in my third year at OU and I was taking a 400-level English class. The instructor spent an entire class period blasting 75% of the students who were still confusing the three forms of the words "there, their and they're", and the words "to, too, and two" they were also using run on sentences the instructor could'nt believe that juniors and seniors at college would make these mistakes. As well as sentence fragment's.

    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Re: Biggest Turn Offs?

    Pet peeves...hmmm...

    -People who drive really slow on the freeway, then speed up when you go to pass them.
    -Having the cashier at the fast food place stare at me, rather than ask for my order.
    -On the subject of fast food, I hate the drive-thru cashiers who mumble unintelligbly into the speaker. Then, when you ask them to repeat what they just said, they mumble unintelligbly again--only louder.
    -Street signs in unfamiliar neighborhoods that are so small you can't read them until you've passed them--and realize it's the street you needed to turn on.
    -"People" or "Style" columns in newspapers that are written in a hip street slang style that's supposed to appeal to the kids, but just sounds stupid: "Cameron Diaz was all up in T-Lake's grill at the 'Choice awards, 'cause he was caught peepin' at "Glitter Girl" Mariah."
    -Robert Novak
    -Possibly my Biggest Pet Peeve Ever: There's a street here in D.C. with parking meters. One, however, happens to be in front of a truck bay door. Even though it's a metered space, if you park there, you WILL be ticketed. So, I would say that "Parking meteres in front of spaces that aren't really spaces" would be a pet peeve of mine.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
