When I first wandered onto the interwebs I met a magic genie who told me that he would grant me one super-human ability, but that in exchange I would have to settle for two other abilities at a mediocre level. I was so greedy for power that day that I foolishly agreed to the deal without asking for specifics. So the genie said to me to choose one of the following to be: prolific, eloquent, or erudite. Being young and immature I chose the first one, and have been regretting it ever since.

FWIW, I don't think your eloquence or your eruditeness is mediocre.  :)

Now I feel bad, cause I just meant it as a joke, and wasn't fishing for compliments  :D  :-X  Thank you for the kind words though.

You're welcome.  :)

I wish I could be more eloquent and erudite in my posts.  My engineering background tends to keep things simple, including my posting style.

Hey, at least you don't just copy & paste like most engineers I deal with!

With Wikipedia, critical thinking and developing objective thoughts have gone out the window.

It's the bloody specs.  It seems like more and more engineering firms hire a handful of engineers to get the stamps and then have underpaid techs doing all the plan and spec writing.  It gets really ridiculous sometimes.

Power has been out all day at my place. Went home and it is still out, so now I am at the library posting. I hope they get it on soon... I'd hate for my food, not to mention my medication, to go bad.  8)

I absolutely hate how Doritos make one's fingers smell, and how much of a pain it can be sometimes to wash it off.

I am the end of the two-liter bottle of coke that I started this morning. Have not got the buzz I would get from two coffees and I only like the taste partly. Problem is every now and then I don't feel like coffee unless I get a headache. So, I'll take it.

Switch to another kind of coffee. Not every kind of coffee tastes alike.

Thanks! I will try to see if this is the problem. I am not sure what causes the headaches; the taste, the fact that it's coffee, something altogether different having to do with my physiology...

But I do like Cool Ranch (can barely stand regular Doritos anymore), despite Asteriktos giving me some odd mental images by mentioning teeth.

I usually hate Doritos, but was surprised at how good the Doritos tacos from Taco Bell tasted.

I read recently that those Doritos tacos became one of their topsellers, but I haven't tried one myself. I'm still intending to try out their new breakfast menu eventually.

It's definitely worth going to Taco Bell for.  The breakfast menu, I'm still wary about.  I don't know if I want to spend my money on it.

I never thought of that. It's genius! :) Everyone knows Doritos cheese powder is one of the strongest substances in the known universe.

Well, they're forbidden on NASA spacecraft, because it ruins the air filtration systems.





That's probably an absolute lie.  I have no idea.

Try here. Tell them 'Asteriktos the Humble Ascetic of the Western Pennsylvania Woodlands' sent you. You'll be in like Hoss.
