I can't see Nick disagreeing w/ the advantages of having a quiver.

I'm amazed it's so freakin perfect every freakin day! So that's been enlightening for me. I didn't know it was so consistant. You don't think they're using photoshop to retouch the waves like they do super models in the magazines, do you? Maybe it's really 2 foot mush and they "digitize" it to perfe...

Fortunately, Rita dropped to a cat 3, wobbled a little to the east, and struck at probably the least populated area it could have...karma? dumb luck, I say.

But if you saw Mythbusters a few weeks ago they worked on repelling sharks with a blow to the snout. their snout is uncomfortably close to their choppers, johnno. But, since I'm safe as a baby behind this keyboard I'll say right now he won't take me without a bloody(mostly mine) fight. :twisted: :w...
