    You guys ever eaten at ''Translate server error''? Great stuff.

    Man, that's hilarious. Thanks for posting that.
    I love that restaurant, but now there'll be huge lines to get in, LOL!

    Round like a circle? No.

    Like an elipse? Yes.

    Yup, I was there last week fighting to get in.
    The menu had some interesting items. Most of the items were also strangely enuff called "Translate Server Error", the best dish was "503 Server cannot handle so many requests".

    My kids loved "Oops! Please try after 5 minutes". You MUST try out "Please click here if you have a slow dialup connection" if you are into sea food.

    Ouch and Ouch.

    Circles/ellipses refer to 2 dim shapes. Spheres, spheroids etc refer to 3 d objects. Orbit is elliptical, earth is a slightly elongated sphere (oblate spheroid acco to wiki) due to rotation.

    Sorry for nitpicking, but I had to say something useless!

    LOL, I love seafood. But until you've had their chef's take on ''Cannot find server", you haven't lived.

    Yeah, you've got to be in the right kind of shape to take that serious a meal. It's not even spicy, just really rich. Gotta get the resistance up, get the enzymes flowing. Train with some butter, some banned cholesterols, some anabolic heavy creams, maybe some garlic therapy and some ginger tea. The Chinese use Tiger parts to keep healty enough to ward off the 501s.

    Well supplements aside, (and back to something more useless), how is John Cauthen doing? You know, I have leaded my handles ''his way'' for a lot of years, and as I was setting up my new pair of Pure Storm Ltds, I thought of that ol' kook.

    So what are the practical steps that Beijing police and Olympic committee are taking in order to provide athletes, spectators and themselves with high-quality affordable friends from Russia and Mongolia for the duration of this milestone athletic event?

    The Beijing police, Olympic committee, athletes and spectators will just have to read a lot, meditate, or enjoy each other until the friendly women from Russia and Mongolia return.

    That makes sense, since they are probably engaged under demanding entertainment projects considering all the VIPs in town giving speeches on TV and what not.

    and a useless public announcement: I have not had access to the email account in my ttw profile for months, but will continue to make every effort to access the account and/or link profile to another account

    Did you know that a baby doesn't learn to breathe out of its mouth until it gets its first cold? This is because their nose gets plugged up and they need some other way to get their air.

    The Bird-Dog exercise for abs is quite simple ... raise your leg like a dog would, and then flap your hands like a bird. Just don't wet the rug.
    Raise opposite hand (not both!)

    If you are finding the Live Scores of the USO a pain to see (small fonts, confusing colors), try this page:
    http://www.flashscore.com/tennis/

    It's easy on the eye, updates every 20 seconds, even speaks out whenever a game or set or match is over in a male or female voice (depending on match) so you can tab over and check.
    (it does not show each point, only game scores).

    If it's the males, can we do some stem-cell magic or skin implants ?

    That is what I meant. I didn't know they would let orgasms slide on here, so I said orgy instead cuz I thought everyone would understand.

    Lawmakers in Northern Virginia have propose tax-efficient pig housing placement programs as a viable comprehensive approach to dealing with issues of immediate concern to the residents, including mortgage crisis, food crisis, getting laid crisis, and it’s all good for the environment, according to scientific sources cited in the article.

    If your hands smell, you can rub them on something that's made of stainless steel and it will eliminate the odor. Something about ions being switched or some ****.

    If you rub garlic cloves on the soles of your feet you'll taste garlic in your mouth.

    At least that's the line they give you when they want to make $50 off you for one of those detoxifying footbaths. It's a scam, FYI.
