    1. Eat oatmeal or Cocoa Puffs
    2. Vote Republican or Democrat
    3. Buy a 9mm or .45 handgun
    4. Think lite beer tastes great or is less filling

    Do these opinions and activities change after playing tennis? LOL

    1. Eat oatmeal-1 1/2 instant packets plus 1 piece of toast plus 1 glass of fat free milk.

    2. I'm registered Independent and vote for the best person for the job (which is usually a vote for the democrat :D ).

    3. Stick with my 22 pistol.

    4. Don't drink alcohol (last time I had any was on my honeymoon 11 years ago this July).

    After tennis I usually eat BBQ/Garlic wings from a local place, drink Gatorade and then water, leave my pistol at home, and watch my teammates drink the beer.

    1. Oatmeal

    2. I think voting is over rated. I've voted since 76, and this may be the first election I bag.

    3. If you're old school, you'll go with the .45. Great knockdown and John Wayne will love you. If you're a new age kinda guy, then the 9mm is the one for you. It's the choice of hipster Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon. I like to play it safe. I have a 1945 issue .45 and a 14-shot 9mm at home. (My dad owned a gun shop)

    4. Tastes great!!!!!

    1)Cap'n Crunch..My boys won't eat oatmeal...
    2)When I was young and po', I voted liberal, now that I'm 40 and paying taxes...my income bracket pays 38% of all tax income...I vote conservative...It's a shame Bush likes to spend like a D :x ...
    3)Shot gun...I get a better grouping of my shots with this...
    4)Lite beer tastes like water...Guinness :twisted: !!!!

    1. Neither as I usually just have some juice prior to tennis. No sense in making me post-prandial with a tough game coming up.

    2. Neither as voting is useless in the UK (maybe in the US) too if Blair can ignore 2 million peace marchers and take the country against the majority's wishes into war with Iraq.

    3. Neither as guns are not legal for the most in the UK.

    4. Neither as I prefer a good red wine or even better a good vintage port :).

    1. Waffles or English Muffins

    3. AR 15
    4. What's lite beer? Once you go black, you never go back!!!! I've tried over 160 beers, and I could try alot more, but many of them would be tasteless and colorless and not enjoyable.

    Cheerios , 1911 .45 , lite beer is like taking regular beer & dropping ice cubes in it. I'll stick to the tried & true Scotch.

    I'd like to quote Phil on this... Camilio, 'grow a pair' and you won't need to validate your poor taste and judgement with perfect strangers on a public forum. You might even realize that you can do just fine without a gun.

    David - Do you find yourself alone a lot at parties? If not, you certainly have some great friends! Take care.

    1) Oatmeal. My mom was sick, years ago, cancer, and all she could eat was oatmeal (and Ensure -- those ads are deceptive. Healthy on-the-go people do not drink Ensure). Anyway, I got into eating oatmeal w/honey. Maple syrup is good too.

    2) Democrat. But I'm kind of with Rabbit on this one. If we're such a great democracy ... why is it that no one votes? 40% of those eligible, maybe. I guess we're exercising our rights not to vote.

    3) Guns scare me.

    4) Lite beer makes as much sense as lite whiskey.

    We don't go to the same parties little man. Let me take a wild guess, yours must be sponsored by John Deere?

    1. Cocoa Puffs because it is the best cereal known to man.
    2. I am not registered to vote yet (something I should probably take care of before November).
    3. 9mm silenced handgun, that way they will never know what hit them.
    4. And last but not least, light beer tastes GREAT, but still gets *filling* after like half a case.

    right..

    Don't do breakfast, will throw some fluid breakfast-thingy in... brunching is ok of course :)
    Other voting system here.. anybody know GROENLINKS? translated as GREENLEFT
    No guns..
    Lite Beer? For me it's beer (Hertog Jan), licquor (Scotch, I like Glenfarclas, I like The Balvenie), cocktails (White or Black Russian, Stimulant, CuraƧao Iced Tea), or soda's, but not light beer.. YUK
