Shovels? Always remember what the head of the Works Progress Administration said when he received a telegram that one of the construction projects had no shovels... he replied. We have no shovels either, have the men lean on each other.Quote: rudeboyoi
I used to be good at pogosticking on a shovel if that counts for anything.
Shovels are for leaning... not work.
Here is my thought for the day. In that Seinfeld episode where Newman and Kramer were playing Risk, and needed to move the game to another location, why didn't they just write down the board position on a piece of paper, put the game away in the box, and then set it up again where they intended to play. This is the kind of question that keeps me up at night.
If they had done that... what would the poor scriptwriter have had to work with???Quote: Wizard

Whenever I finally decided to make a screen name here I wanted to pick something different than what I use on other sites. I used to use just my last name as a moniker but my last name is somewhat unique and I wanted to stop using it. So I went to create a name and I wanted it to be gambling related. There are so many smart people on this site and APs that I thought a good name would be gambling without an edge (GWAE). A few weeks went by and I read someone who mentioned the radio show which I have not listed to since Frank left. In the post they used the initials and then it hit me that the name I chose was the same thing. I didn't realize at the time that without and with would have the same initials nor was I real thinking about the show. Owell, such is life.
I have a question about speaking up or holding your "peace" so to speak. Is it better for a marriage that you (as a man) rather not say what you have in mind to say just so that you won't upset your spouse or is it better to always say what is on your mind?
Also, I started my super charged diet today as I only have two months left before coming home. I need to be under 205 pounds or they won't let me back into the country :)
I had a fake Facebook account my friend knew about. One day I decided to start talking about Jack Jones as if he was a real person. Jack Jones said this, jack Jones did this, my friend Jack wants to know this, etc. It probably was about six months before he finally said something about it saying there wasn't any Jack Jones. It was so much fun thinking he thought I lost my mind and he was too afraid to say anything.
I think I got the idea from Sunny in Philadelphia from the shhuushhy guy episode.
Many of you guys here don't believe in the idea of marriage
It's not that I don't believe in the concept of marriage - it's just that I'm probably too nice of a guy to ever go through with it. I can't wrap my head around making just ONE woman so blissfully happy at the expense of the deep pain, mental anguish, and loss of hope it would bring to so many others.

As someone who has been married 19 years, my answer is to bite your tongue and if you disagree with your wife and say nothing at all. She will always be willing to argue longer than you. Easier to just keep your opinions to yourself. I can't speak for every marriage, but I've never heard of a man ever winning an argument with his wife.
