would never have guessed that one, dip$hit. just kidding....sorta.

anyway, the dude in colorado sleeping with the gay prostitute and NOT doing meth was a big story, too. he was a pastor, but his name escapes me.

btw, i am more inclined to think that events on a national/ international scale are going to shape us more than people that act on a national/ international level do. but i won't go there, since so many are offended by my apparently outlandish posts on the other thread.

one more thing: how the hell did you fail accounting? i could walk through that class backwards with my head up my a$$ !!!

Although I first felt stupid for posting what I did on the other thread and then being chided by several didn't seem to make it better, I don't feel nearly as bad now.

the fact that i didn't go to class, didn't buy the book and didn't care helped out a whole lot. i'm glad you did well in accounting, it will get you far in life... especially if you want to be a doctor... oh yea, and i was sad when you called me a dip****, it really did hurt my feelings.
