    LMAO @ Cshot

    - About the bowling, I once saw a guy, make a spare on his last shot, he had knocked down nine pins in the first shot. One pin away from a perfect game. (just a side note)

    1) Understanding women
    2) Understand why dogs sniiff eachother's butts
    3) Why pigeons will not get out of your way, when you are walking towards them. (from Seinfeld - Geoerge: "We dont have a deal with them!")
