What a horrible tragedy. Surreal at this point, I am sure, to the families of the victims.

I'll be the first to say that American Idol sucks hard, but the only thing lamer than this show is putting in this much effort to get it off the air.  Let the American Idol nerds have their fun, unless you prefer that they have free time to force their preferences into our hobbies . . .

I'd dearly like to think that this is true, but at the same time reciprocation isn't a good reason  for one's actions.  Do the right thing, regardless of benefit or consequence.

My mom never used to make us eat (actually, she encouraged us girls to eat less because she was always afraid of us getting fat).  But, when she DID do "starving children in China" stories, she was actually talking about her family in Hong Kong.  She told me stories about how eggs were so expensive over there for them that they actually got them as birthday gifts.  Never looked at an egg the same way after that, definately made me more appreciative of the life we have here in America.

My mom used to think I was always cold for some reason.  I don't get it.  She insisted that I'd catch a cold if I don't put on more layers of clothing.  When I finally told her that colds are caused by viruses and have nothing to do with the actual temperature outside, she looked shocked for a moment, then accused me of being insolent (in Chinese)!

No.  She never said anything like this, but when she taught this lesson, it was accompanied with the "actions speak louder than words" lesson!

Haha, I guess then my mother is more about forgiveness than justice: her advice, usually accompanied by a weary sigh, is "Don't have kids!"

Go easy on this weirdo. . .she had a child die and was mentally unstable to begin with. ..

Who?

As another bright lister has noted, plenty of women do this as well. . .but even as a guy, I have to admit the brotherhood is somewhat guilty of this a little more on the average. . .

I wasn't even a year old for most of the year (turned one in September).  I don't remember entirely too much, but I know that the majority of my day was spent eating, sleeping and rolling around.  Couldn't have been all that bad, except the whole wearing diapers thing.

Everything on this list pretty much can apply to men AND women, or a comparison thereof. Just as some chicks date guys because of his new ride, some guys date chicks because they want to show off their new "ride".

As with everything else on this list, this can apply just as easily for girls as for guys.  I've heard the horror stories from my male friends of the dating disasters they've come across, and they're not much better than the ones girls have.  

I'm not a big fan of dating.  I'm glad I'm done with that whole mess.

Once again, Maven, you got me to sit up and pay attention. It's this olive oil vs "extra virgin olive oil" issue. Both are bottled, so freshness is eliminated. They both have the same tolerance to heat, which is a major factor in using it over other oils, or in raising the tolerance of something else, like butter. Taste-wise, the difference between the two is so indiscernable, that I can't justify paying two to three times the price for "extra virgin"...if there is a difference at all. Not unlike wine, there are $20 bottles that I have found to be more enjoyable than $200 bottles. And there is no health differences between the two, either, which I am convinved that they both hold over cheap, generic vegetable oils.

So? What's the deal? It reminds me of the famous Frank Costello legend. Seems that some of his crew hi-jacked a load of parsley. Never one to waste an opportunity, he had his guys out on the streets of New York, paying a visit to restaurant owners..."convincing" them that they needed to put a little sprig of it on every dinner plate. Why? Because he said so!

(As a side note, I will only buy olive oil in glass. I've been stigamtized, here. Seems that a friend of mine nearly lost his enitre family after buying a large, tin container of olive oil. As it turned out, a rat crawled in and gave birth before it was filled. Nasty business.)

There is one difference that I have noticed: When I hold a bottle of extra virgin olive oil, I feel the urge to raise my pinky finger while I'm pouring it. And I pour it more carefully, as someone has me convinced that it is a precious commodity. I'm not convinced. Either way, as an oil..."5" Stars.

I should have rated this movie ere now, but I defer to Irishgit's good review and recommend that you read it.

This is one of my favorite gangster flicks and I recommend that you rent it and watch it.

Tragic and it will become a landmark in attempts to turn this country into a land of sheeple with everyone disarmed and huddling in their pens waiting for the next wolf attack.

At least he has his priorities in order.

My former mother-in-law didn't find it at all comforting when I telephoned her from the hospital to tell her that her son was in an accident. "He's a little banged up, but he was wearing clean underwear!"  Yep... that elevated me right to the top of her s#*t list.

...and you can almost bet that if there is a fight, at least one of the bad guys is going to land on a hot grill.

This was a "man-crying" movie. I know lots of men whose eyes misted up when that Thunderbird went over the edge.

I came from a family of six kids and across the street was a family of seven kids. We heard this quite often.

My grandmother was also a great one for this saying.

Boy, did I hear this saying all the time. I had some younger brothers and they were bad, but my sisters were the worst for messy rooms.

Yep, ma, you were right!

You had to have lived in a rural area in order to hear this one. I heard it all the time.
