As strange as it may sound, I'm so glad to be going over via Detroit.

So, I've got a ton of praise earlier in the thread for Atlanta so I don't want to take a huge crap on that, but, well the airport still sucks.

They need at least one more damn runway and 2 more terminals to make it even close to having enough space. I always make the comparison to O'Hare, which is slightly less busy than it is but when there's no weather (which can be a huge problem), it runs like clockwork. Atlanta has 2 less runways than O'Hare and feels like it has 2/3rds the terminal space but still has more traffic. So you're always waiting in line for a gate when you land, which backs planes up coming into Atlanta and you're always in a line 5~15 deep trying to take off. It's stupid beyond belief.

I actually was thinking about the RWBL the other day, and dropped by the forums.

I was just wondering if the latest OOTP was worth buying.

I'm also wondering if the Tennessee football program will ever get back to what it was.

Someone here once made a great post about "breakfast-food nazis" that love to criticize people for not eating the right food at the right meal. I think this is a problem in many work environments. He was right on.

Yeah. This. I've decided that unless I'm willing to endure the "batshit crazy" for laughs that it's impossible to have a discussion with people like that, because they don't respect reason + logic + facts.

Wikipedia (I know, I know) says that it was written by a Baptist minister (which your Facebook friend should love) who also happened to be a "Christian socialist."

Yes, it means exactly what you think it does.

Sun Shang Xiang is as annoying on film as she is in the novel. And yet, my affinity for Wu grows because I just really like the Sun family and can identify to some degree with Sun Quan.

Xiao Qiao is pretty hot and awesome in Part 1.

I want to see Warlords since that's early in the book and I'm hoping for an appropriately selected Diao Chan.

It's definitely cruel, since I'm still the same rank as I was in 95.

Was eating a Clif Builder's Bar the other day while driving into the office after my shift. It had melted a little in my car, and I ended up getting some chocolate on my nose. I wiped it off my nose and licked it off my finger because hey, who wastes chocolate?

I looked over to my left and the driver in the lane next to me was giving me the dirtiest look...took me a second to realize that I must have looked exactly like I picked my nose and ate it. Awesome
