    Last night Federer spoke to me in a dream.
    Some people on the road (touts, i think) were bothering him.
    Then he turned to me and politely asked me something in a strange language. Twice, since i could not understand.

    I felt dismayed that i could not understand his holy words :)

    Totally useless post, but i felt happy when i woke up and remembered.

    This is a mispost, you are supposed to post this in the "tennis player dreams" thread. If you have a dream about a tennis player and the information from the dream is useless, the "tennis player dream" aspect supercedes the uselesness of the information. Please let me know if you need a link to the dreams thread, I am sure I can find it.

    Yeah I know, cause we were behind on the phone bill, and finally last week I had twenty dollars that I gave to my little sister (she had a bicycle) to ride to the post office and pay the phone bill. Instead she spent it on cheap booze and didn't come home until today, and the post office was closed for the holidays the whole time (so our phone line was disconnected). So I pawned her bicycle as punishment and paid the phone bill today, and now I can have my life back and dial in and post on this forum all the time. Happy Thanksgiving!:)

    You need to teach your little sister to behave more responsibly with her money. Show her how to farm potatoes in a vacant lot and then distill vodka from them. Also, it is much more sensible to tap your neighbor's phone or cable line to access the internet.

    Thought you edited them for swear words.

    As I was reading them, my wife noticed what I was reading (from the threadtitle) and wondered wny I was even bothering to read it....since I had written that very compilation just a couple of years ago.

    Now THAT is useless information.

    Well anyway, the proceeds from that book helped us pay the phone bills and get my neice a new bike. From ''Uncle George's Pawn Shop'' down the street.

    You guys should read the "General Book of Ignorance" it has a ton of useless information like this. For example:

    -The tallest mountain in the world is not Everest, but Mt. Mauna Kea. Everest is the highest. There is in fact a difference when measuring mountains.

    -The most deadliest animal in the world is a mosquito. Next dangerous? The marmot.

    -The largest living thing in the world? Not the blue whale, but a giant mushroom in Oregon. Speaking of blue whales, the largest item they can swallow is the size of a grapefruit.

    -Goldfish don't crash into the side of the bowl because they use a pressure sensitive method of navigation.

    -Moths aren't attracted to light, they are disoriented by it.

    In an effort to study Thanksgiving celebration habits of tennis players around the world, a survey has been recently conducted examining activities of the players on Thanksgiving Day. The analysis covered a broad range of issues, from dietary behaviour to sexual activity, to reflections on the best tennis players in history of the sport. Here’s summary highlights of the interim polling results:

    - less than a third of the respondents celebrated traditionally with a Turkey dinner
    - NONE enjoyed Goose or a bird other than Turkey or Duck as their holiday meal
    - nearly half (43%, to be precise) cheated on their friend with their friend’s girlfriend
    - similarly, nearly half (an increasing 43%) now believe that Marat Safin is the greatest tennis player of all times

    Fascinating…

    I had a dream last night I had special powers. well, basically I'd think of a move from Streetfighter/Mortal Kombat and any other computer game and then I'd see me press the buttons on a control pad, and I'd do them. Except I was all white, like white clothes, shoes, skin, eyes, everything. Then i got someone in one of those bear holds, like a locked my arms around his body and jumped of the Big ben which killed the Monster, which happened to be this purple thing with a sword, it was a massive purple man with big muscles.

    Then I ended up a fish and chip shop with no front door, no wall actually, it only had three walls and my cousin was making people eat all funny stuff out of this bar and when it came to my turn lest just say there is an aligator somewhere who was lost his man-hood. I don't like aligators.

    I don't think it was a dream.

    Lol, gay IS the international colour af gay people and I AM in Brighton, but I am not gay. Well with my costume it was wierd, there was a lack of one, what I mean is imagine drawing a picture with no colour what-so-ever, that was me. I think it was like that as I was hybrid of people, or a doll, hence the control pad. Either way I was a bad ass mofo that saved the world!

    And haha at the giggling, I do that too!

    I'm checking out, because I'm off to primitive lands and a new life. But I hope to be back online some time soon. But if not soon, then I love everybody on TTW who know who they are and many thanks for your knowledgeable posts and fun and crazy games. Hugs and kisses ! ^%^ !

    P.S. And keep an eye on the Davis Cup final this weekend, make sure they don’t make too many bad calls against Safin. Thank you.

    Bye, sobad.

    I too have had a real life for the last one week.
    I was watching this ATP Challenger, seeing tennis live for the first time. and man it was so exhilarating -- live tennis is another world from watching on TV !!!

    Thus, i have been sort of absent from this forum.

    Tomorrow is the final between Qureshi of Pakistan and An of Korea.

    Today, the doubles final was won by Moodie and De Voest of South Africa.

    It's going to be sad coming back to my little cave tomorrow, and my virtual life on this forum.

    Oh btw, until now I have been perhaps the ONLY spectator. The others are players or press or coaches.

    Awesome, ananda. Enjoy it. Who are you rooting for, the Pak-man or the Korean?
    SoBad, take care, man.

    I've got a schedule change, too. A family vacation....and now I'm starting to do more volunteer work, and working out at the gym a bit more (cardio and core work, not just tennis, soccer and the occasional bikeride). So, less time for hangin' out here.

    Peace and love.

    -slice.

    Yeah you can't fully appreciate how truely awesome these guys are until you see it live. I remember watching my first womens match at lipton and thinking crap these chics can hit the mess out the ball. On TV their rallys look almost like moon balls. When you are there you see how much pace is on the ball. Good stuff.

    And Sobad good luck, and stay safe in the primitive land, whatever that means ;-)

    since you asked, i was rooting for both the pakistani and the korean, and here's the real reason. They both are 1hbh'ers and i root for all 1hbh'ers :)

    On Saturday i found that we have a second 50K USD ATP Challenger from today, so i shall be there all of this week too.

    My useless fact for the day:

    The average adams_1 seems to take more notice of posts with avatars next to them.

    Maybe it's all the pretty colours...

    LOL, Ian, did you mean "bowels" i/o "bowls". if so, pls correct spellings. Not to nitpick, but some might misunderstand it, if you meant bowels.
    The meaning i believe is "the dregs of TTW" will miss him, am i right ?

    sounds like sobad has gone to Mordor to destroy Sauron.

    Or maybe team up with him, hehe.

    Bust your chops? Hell, I'm Scotch/Irish (3rd generation). The Irish in me is a drunk, but the Scot is too cheap to buy...

    Today i saw another American (Nathan Thompson) play at the ATP challenger.
    (Yesterday was Francis). I think he too was using the chick-stick (babe-alot).
    Lost in straight sets, 1st round.

    omg, he has a fan site! http://www.nathanthompsontennis.com/index.html

    I also saw this Kuwaiti guy, looked awesome, every time he hit a forehand looked like he was launching a rocket! Strangely he lost to our number 6 Indian in straight sets, first round.

    Wherever you go, there you are.

    How's that for utterly useless information on a dreary, snowy Tuesday?!?! 100 miles from Canada is not a good place to be right now.

    Acco to this article (click page 14-15), humans are evolving at a faster rate than ever before and we should soon be immune to tennis elbows, rotator cuff injuries, poly strings and the 2hbh. (ok, the last was a lame joke).
    The "we" of course does not mean you and I, it means our progeny several thousand years hence, so don't hold your breath, but get cracking at the progeny part :)
