So I really couldn't go down to the post office and pick up my forms, but I sure was standing in line the next day.  (Perfectly reasonable reason to skip first, and maybe second period High School Seniors!)Anyone else get silly, but grand advice from father? See More

"Moving in with your parents due to scholastic financial hardship is more then acceptable.  As long as you get into med school~  And keep working out, it is important for doctors to stay in decent shape to help combat childhood obesity~"

30 Days to a better man 2012

This is not an attempt to steal Brett McKay's thunder, I just happened to be a latecomer to this website. The enormous success of this group in 2009 led me to feel that we should do it every year. This will be for the rest of 2011, as well as the duration of 2012.

Creativity

Now I have been told that the color of the sky in my world is a different shade then most.  But I came across a great video on youtube by John Cleese about creativity.  I have to say that growing up in western Oklahoma I was raised to believe men acted like John Wayne.  And seeing as how my arms are never going to be strong enough to zip bullets at bad guys without pulling the trigger on my Colt 45 Peacemaker, maybe I needed to re-evaluate my role models. Anyhow, let's hear what the community…See More
