Wow players would have a lot of bank accounts, insurances and cell phones

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Please don't bring up Canada and cell phones. When you are in downtown Detroit you try not to use your phone because you can get hit with "roaming" charges if the signal bounces off those Canadian towers across the bridge. Your provider will credit you when you call in and complain, but it just becomes easier to not use it when you are in that area. To think I was just calling my family to see in they wanted me to pick up some BBQ and I was charged almost $4 for a one minute call!

Don't laugh, when Venus won the final this year, she joked about needing to win so she could scoop some more free pens from Ron Shaw

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

The BBQ was good as always. However, this now makes me remember that when we first started getting that lunch special it was only $4; it's more than double that now over the past dozen or so years.
