    The Pound (Sterlling, of course, what else could i possibly mean?) seems to be taking quite a beating nowadays.
    The Buck is doing better, though.

    If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, he becomes disoriented.

    If you take a man and have him jog behind a car, he becomes exhausted.

    Reminds me of that old binary joke:

    There are only 10 types of people in the world —
    those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    ^^^^ You can only right that joke down though. It loses it's luster when spoken out loud.

    Not really, the first time I heard it, someone spoke it out. One of the audience went "DUH, you mean 2".
    It took me a sec to read 10 as binary, However, I do agree its better written down than spoken.

    I caught that, Sentinel, hehe...
    right after I was done playing, I traveled with and coached a Eurokid who pronounced it like it ought to be pronounced: Phamtom of the/ they went to the OPP-erra, and to most Americans that sounded closer to Oprah than the way we say it: Ah-pra. SO he was made fun of...and I started to pronounce it his way and I still do after all these years.


    Lemme guess, Becker over Chang at the Masters in Germany or in the Oz Oipen Final of 96?
    Either way, good tennis for the most part: The versatile/powerful attacker thwarts the noble defender.
    G. Bizet's music is cool, but how about a little Wagner as a soundtrack to Boris?

    While watching tennis, I keep the volume up so I can hear the ball, but play the music loud enough to drown out the commentators.

    So less lyric-heavy music. You know what's good with tennis (playing or just watching)? Mozart's Requiem, anything baroque, some Stone Roses, Radiohead, Clash, Pumpkins/Zwan, Jimi HEndrix, Yo Yo Ma, REM, the Cult, the Cure and Pearl Jam.

    Yes, it was for you ;-)

    It's the AO 96, I watch a set a day with these ole matches, so no spoilers please. Well, first 2 sets Chang was unimpressive. Boris had him on the run.

    Moz's Requeim, you are kidding me !!! I'll give it a try, though. It's a masterpiece. Perhaps with Safin vs Berdych davis cup. Or Davydenko vs Serra (Estoril).

    Yeah, the Requiem is really brilliant, and not very punk rock, but it fits tennis well and brings a lot of peace to it.

    I did some med ball work with pearl jam [Yield] and yo yo Ma yesterday. Felt good about two extra sets at the end.

    Wanting a court in the back with really good speakers.

    Here's some useless information: I learned at a USPTA seminar about 15 years ago that baroque music was best to practice tennis with.

    This is very important, so please pay attention: Joe Strummer enjoyed tuna melts from Clown Alley when he was in San Francisco during his Clash days.

    If you do not know what you are doing, it is almost guaranteed that your cab driver will charge you more than double for your ride from the airport into central Moscow.

    Isn't this the same everywhere ? We have a expression here when someone questions your honesty you say - 'we are people not cab drivers'.

    This is a 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 hypercube, consisting of 4096 unique points. Each small dot is a typical 2x2x2 cube consisting of 8 points each. Every point (of the 4096) can be categorized by a 12 digit binary numer (eg. 101001001011.) In fact, every combination of 12 1's and 0's corresponds to a point in this hypercube.

    I would've made it larger, but Google Sketch software was crawling at this capacity and I didn't feel like waiting a couple hours for the next level.

    Damn, you can. Buy some good clippers. Take good care of them and they will last you for YEARS.

    They do BOTH kinds of haircuts: Flat-toips and buzzcuts!
