Of course with Starbucks's plans for a franchise on every street in the world now on hold, brewing your own seems a better option.

lol. nice one, IB.


lets keep up the posting! break the record!

maybe we should have a specific forum for records... (longest post, most helpfull critiquer, person with the most topics posted... stuff like that.)

but who would regulate it? and what would the rules be?

my random thought.

to be or not to be, is that really the question?

death is the end, or a new beginning. it is horrible and beautiful, all at once. so strange, that we have no difference in the long run. only great men become immortal. Hitler, neapolion, alexander, ceaser, washington. they earned the title of immortals, somehting we can never hope to do.

100 years from now, you are either great or dead.

and so conscious makes cowards of us all.

Hamlets screwed, isn't he? After all hes done, god won't except him, and mankind will slander him.

now im depressed...

Egads! Aren't you stationed at a missile range, RF? Six months, huh? Sounds like the time change fixed it for you.

Of course, figuring out what's going to happen in a movie can be a nuisance to writers as well, because after a while, people start asking you what's going to happen, and you have to say, "I don't know. I haven't seen this movie before either."

Two-edged sword....

The online experience is a take-it or leave-it proposition with me. When I go on vacaction, I leave it, for up to two weeks.

Can't be bothered hauling a laptop along...one more piece of luggage to worry about, and an expensive one at that.
