    Haha, just for the record: I shaved off my sideburns and that lil' patch of hair under my chin. (For real.)

    God do I need to find a picture of me looking sexy so I can combat that...bleh, I don't have any pictures though, all my girl-friends take them and I usually never ask for copies.

    and HB! How could you! The chin patch was the only thing keeping you sexy. Geez, now you've killed the (wet)dream . Anyhow, if you look at the picture of HB from his student ID he looks exactly like Ross from Friends

    Well, can't think of much for Ohio besides the fact that it is chalk of bull- headed republicans (yeah, I'm talking to you Taft) who would rather take the $40 million lottery surplus that was intended to go to the failing school systems and vote in that it be used to pay their salaries instead. Also, our citizens don't give a damn about the school system themselves. They're all baby boomer republicans who would rather VOTE OUT LEVIES INTENDEED JUST TO KEEP THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS FROM GOING BANKRUPT THAN GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE FUTURE THEY SCREWED ME OUT OF. Well, when I was in school, I made the threat that if those ass****s republicans in Ohio, with their stupid voucher lobbying, decide to screw me out of a decent future, then I would (which I am old enought to now) rally my fellow generation to decide on which social security benefits get cut, and I still intend to carry the threat out; after all, fair is fair.

    Oh yeah, our poor education has also taught us that there are only 3 seasons of the year: Almost Winter, Winter, and Construction.

    Well, in Michigan the lottery goes only to support the schools. Of course, the general fund spending on schools is cut by the same amount, so no net gain.

    OK, stereotypes of Ohio from up here:

    1. Flat. Really flat.
    2. Ok, hills in the southern part. But now you're talking hillbilly.
    3. What the f*** is there to do down there? Besides Cedar Point & Sea World? And why is there a Sea World in Ohio???
    4. Hot. Humid. Winter worthless without snow.
    5. Pretty damn conservative. Except for the drive thru beer and liquor stores. Gotta wonder about that.

    Just joshing around, I have lots of relatives in Ohio, mostly Zanesville area (and they speak hillbilly). Really nice people there. If they got rid of ticks and chiggers, had real seasons topping out at 75 - 80 F in summer, and had lots of trout streams, I might live there. As is, see no point in going below the 45th parallel, unless altitude compensates for the difference.

    While I'm at it, let's hit the Europeans...

    Nah, they love hitting the US, let 'em have their fun. We can take it, gnats on the elephant and all...

    >and HB! How could you!<

    Don't worry. I'm in the act of growing it back.

    The reason why I shaved it is because I was thinking of growing a big afro type beard over the summer and come back to school to get my senior ID picture made like that. It got too itchy, so I shaved that bugger off!

    Not even Sea World, Six flags bought up Geauga Lake and neighboring Sea World and closed down Sea World for expansion.
