  1. Cruise Control

    For the first time in more than a year the wife and I took on a road trip to visit one of her friends.

I only wish I would have embraced this technology sooner, because I probably wouldn't have ever had a speeding ticket otherwise. ...

    They have a comment section for all articles posted and sure enough some threads of discussion come up about his involvement in Hubbard's Cult. With the wonder of the Internet I really shouldn't be surprised - but, nevertheless, I am - that there are some people who defend the Cult ...

  5. My cousin and Facebook

    I have a cousin -I'll refer to her as Amy - who is a few years younger than myself (I'm currently 30, so I think she's 28) and is basically the second eldest person in the bracket of the family's generation; out of all siblings and cousins interrelated through my parents and their siblings, I'm the eldest, this cousin would be the second eldest, my sister behind her, and so on. This is the order which I grew up believing. However, about ten years ago, I came to discover that this wasn't the truth ...

  8. lol irc

    Congratulations on the successful upgrade. Good to see that our posts from 2002 shall still live on.

    I'd also like to thank all the people for showing up last night on IRC and would like to politely point out that there is a TNL chatroom which does exist the other 364 days of the year. As opposed to #thenextlevel it is titled #tnl. Join and make maruchan happy and give joust someone new to bitch at or with.
