    hey wait, let me clarify.
    i meant i have run out of useless things to post on OTHER threads.

    Useless things that get misunderstood, rub people the wrong way, result in people generalizing that only 12 year old's post in this forum, etc.

    My useless post of today:
    I have just returned after an enjoyable tennis session - was hitting after almost a week. Still breathless, i have someone who's come to fix the router, and my elder brother (in the same room) shouting on the phone with someone else , me balancing a laptop on the slanted TV top, trying to change some config information while my mind is refusing to work in this din.
    I feel like screaming.

    I have begun to really love this POSG string, after laughing at it when i strung it. Thanks, nobadmojo. bye, useless friends.

    Don't lose hope on me, tempest, evolution worked 4.5 billion years to create a perfectly useless human being, and it sure as heck succeeded.

    Ban on Indian Bull-fighting

    Stay order on Jallikattu dampens Pongal spirit in TN

    Madurai (PTI): The Supreme Court's order declining to permit "Jallikattu", the traditional bull fight, has come as a dampener in 11 districts of Southern Tamil Nadu as the event would be missed for the first time in its history during Pongal festivities.

    The order against "Jallikattu", also a popular attraction for tourists, including foreigners, evoked strong reactions as the order came just days before the Jan 15 Pongal festival, during which it would be held in several places.

    "Jallikattu", regarded by the locals similar to the Spanish Bull Fight, was believed to be in vogue since the days of Pandyas in the 13th century to display the valour of the youth.

    This is my first post in 3 or 4 days because I've been sick and at home sleeping.

    Being sick stinks, but it's cool to be home all alone.

    Hmmm... kinda sounds like a lame excuse for not posting around the forum. If I got sick, I bet I'd be posting like crazy around the clock. Like you wouldn't even recognise the forums if you logged on, that’s how much discussion I would be engaged in. I’d overwhelm this thread with uselessness, then address every pressing issue of the Odds and Ends, including 2008 awards nominations, as well as the whole tiger/dogs/tallergirl thing that people are apparently still talking about (what is there to talk about it, when she said herself that he had shared the cost of the steaks that they had purchased together). And once finished with Odds and Ends, I’d do all of Rants and Raves, before hitting the rest of the subforums with wisdom. And once I’m done proving that lead strips at 3 o’clock of whatever gelblade won more slams on wood surface than Pete Laver arena itself, I’d probably end up in the Former Pro to figure out once and for all the whole Seles-Graf-JFK poisoning mystery, or whatever happened there.

    Just kidding guys, I hope you get well soon!:)

    How dare you sir waltz into the harmony of this discussion with your blatant wonton accusations, instead of addressing the issues that are actually being raised in the course of the discussion. I see that you are very new to the forums and have a lot to learn yet. And just so everyone knows, I have resolved my unresolved issues with Wilson racquets.

    Hello Andres! I hope you are enjoying the beautiful Argentinean summer, and tennis is going well and no currency hyperinflation or anything like that in your area.

    On behalf of the Committee, I would like to thank you for submitting your self-nomination with visual evidence, and to remind everyone once more that self-nominations are generally acceptable, as long as sufficient visual evidence is provided, as is the case here. Thanks for setting an example for others. I would not be surprised if your leadership were to be recognised by nominations for other categories as well.

    Yeah nice photo and looks like you beefed up a little too getting ready for the challenger circuit.;) Unless other nominees respond by flooding these threads with their beach photos, I would expect you to do very well indeed in this particular category. Good work.

    its not just the sea
    its the waves, and the surf
    the sea breeze
    the tides
    the sea shells
    the beautiful sound of the water
    the sand-castles
    the sun-rises and
    moon -rises (fer east-coasters)
    the palm trees
    the bikinis...
