Captain Obvious from the hotels.com ads looks like he is a decent runner. Looks easy on his feet running in those ads.

What were those legislators in NC thinking? Why would anybody want a big strong person who is attracted to females to be required to use the women's restroom? As a woman, I'd just as soon that person would go somewhere else!!
Don't worry, there's a long thread about it in political. But your comment is more cogent than most of that thread.

Of course, that is in fact about half of my reason for avoiding that forum.

The winner of the game of Life is whoever has the most money at the end right? That's stupid. In the real game of life you want to spend all that money. If you ended with no kids, get as much debt as possible and let death pay it off!

Ya, so the board game should be the same. You don't win for having saved the most and then died.
