    The last day of my last visit to Prague, there were two attempts to pickpocket me. Both involved (at least) two man teams. One man grabbed an arm to distract me while another hit my pockets from behind. My wallet was in the front pocket of my jeans, but they got my Klennex.

    Hey, I'll get pics up later. I really want to go to the final, it could literally be a once-in-a-lifetime occasion but it's the night before my english exam (these are the exams that plot essentially your entire life- ie.what uni's accept you etc. So I can't go :-:)-(

    The U.S. government project Stargate, conducted at Stanford Research Institute, was a 20 (?) million dollar project that studied anomalous cognition, specifically "remote viewing." Funding was cut off in 1995 after a Congressional review determined that the project was not producing applicable results.

    Sentinel changes his avatar so much, that it is impossible for me to tell it's him at a glance, forcing me to actually read user names... :evil:

    I tried surfing for the third time in my life today and was unable to ride a single wave. I was most likely the worst surfer in the Pacific Ocean...but dolphins came pretty close.:) I think they were laughing at me.:(

    Went for a run during yesterday's epic (2nd) semifinal. Heavy rain all of a sudden - it was wonderful running in the rain ... finally I was jumping and sloshing about in puddles ! (My iPod may have suffered damages though)

    Came back and found the pro-match discussion thread had 18 more pages added to it !!!

    Sometime, I wonder why I am playing tennis. I am not a pro. There is no money to make. And then I realize, I am in search of the BIG BANG theory.
    I am try to hit BIG winner - the satisfaction feeling from crushing the green
    little ball. So I hit one more, one more, and one more until..........

    This is stupid....

    I have conducted a scientific experiment and determined that I can't survive on a beach or in the ocean for more than five minutes without:

    It has also been determined that I will fall into the ocean if I use a surfboard smaller than:

    ^ I hate when racquets break. Strings, okay, fine, easy, just buy some strings and get free strining.

    But, if your clueless about racquets like me, you have to buy a new one.

    I've never actually liked a frozen, pre-packaged pizza. Then I got an Amy's. Blows away any corporate pie I've had, and it rivals a real pizzeria.
    Anyone ever tried Amy's?

    I'm not a vegetarian, but a friend who is, served a few at a kid's b-day party. Everyone loved it.

    Slice,

    I have never heard of amy's.

    I went to the website http://www.amys.com/index.php and it seemed very interesting with the variety of foods offered. Even the pizza with rice, cornmeal and whole wheat crusts. Also the fact that is all organic is pretty neat as well.

    i will have to see if the commisary has some of thier products. The compnay appears to support the troops.

    Cool, Amy's pizzas are a buck more than the others, but well worth it. I only have pizza occasionally, but in a pinch, it's a nice thing to have in the freezer.

    See. Totinos are $1.00-1.25. How much do these others cost? Cause, I think the price is what makes Totinos taste so good.

    I can finally rip some balls due to a freshly strung racquet. Letting go your racquet unstrung for 2 months is too long.
