<strong>
Thank you for that, powerdoc. I've updated my list with something more appropriate.</strong><hr></blockquote>

1) yes doctors are very silly
2) don't believe your update, and for stupidity ask Jonathan if i am not a specialist in these fields

Krispy Kreme would rock more if I didn't have to drive down to Fremont (closest to Berzerkeley) or Mountain View (closest to home) to get it!

I guess In'n'Out is added incentive, but blah. I buy them by the 2 dozen all for myself...the 'iced' ones last 3+ days without going stale...
I can change my sig again!

Oh, and I can provide quite compelling evidence of Powerdoc's expertise in the field of stupidity for those doubters out there. He does some really stupid things sometimes.

I laughed my ass off during the scene where Tori Spelling goes ballistic. Classic. The only entertaining acting I've ever seen from her.

I'm sure some of you 20 year-olds have healthy sex lives but us old guys are rarely so fortunate, so in a way I feel boastful.

When I was 21 Jessica Rabbit could just about give me a hard on. Back then I could have done it all day non-stop. Unfortunately I've just always had girlfriends who couldn't match my preferred frequency.

Now it's actually hard work, but I've finally met someone who can satisfy me! It would have been so much easier a few years back, though.

There was a whole thread dedicated to your lovelife, tonton, in which I'd hoped to read many lewd and lascivious posts. I think it's time you dig it out and give us an update - things seem to have moved on apace!

But it's not in Fremont... it's in Union City. Yeah, yeah, they're close, but when you live in Fremont (as I do when not in college), it's still annoying to have to go to Milpitas or Union City for everything. Fremont: 200,000 people, no malls, and 1 crappy movie theater.
