I am up to date!!

Beets - I unless anyone comes back with follow ups - or new compelling questions - I think I should step down from the hot seat.

This hot seat is now cold.

Vanzack -- give any more thought to the question of whose threads you read on a regular basis here?

Sounds simple, but it is surprisingly easy when you actually say those words and practice them.  I dont care who you are,or what profession you are in - once you profess that the money and anything else you get from your career are secondary to your family relationships - life becomes a lot easier.

Thank you.  You have my respect for sure.  All the best.

I don't think you answered the question "What's the one thing you would change about Covers?". Sorry if you did and I missed it. I was interested in that answer.

BAHAHA this killed me.  The little things always crack me up more than the big ones.

Regardless of if you want to meet some stranger who is 20 years younger than you when you are in Pittsburgh (which I'm sure is one of those things where you say 'hey - why not?'... but when the time comes the choice is obvious - HELL NO!'... well thats what I would do anyway, and I've always felt that our thought process is actually somewhat similar) ---- where was I .... oh yeah ----- regardless, if you are even in Pittsburgh you absolutely MUST catch a baseball game at PNC Park.  I'm telling you, it is absolutely baseball heaven.  I was never a big PIttsburgh guy... the people here at dumb, gross, and thoughtless.... the city is generally dirty, unappealing, and there isn't a great deal to do.... and the weather sucks.  I never thought I would miss it but my first year away from Pittsburgh I realized how much I really love this city.  So for me, I could sit in that empty park and look at that skyline all day and night and it would never get old.  Its like observing the grand canyon or something... but you don't have to be from Pittsburgh to take in that view and love it.  What I said about the city being dirty is only at street level... I think 90% of people who have never really taken a good look at it would be blown away by how nice it looks from a distance.  Stuck right in the middle of 2 rivers at their confluence, you could not hand pick a greater place in which to nestle a city.  I guess that's why G Wash and the Union chose it for Fort Pitt.  But like most of my posts, you don't need to read all this nonsense - just skip to the end for the point.  You need to go to a game at PNC Park.

And don't give me this 'the Pirates suck' garbage, of course they do.  Who doesn't love a good underdog.

Oh yeah - for best results go on fireworks night and bet large on the Succos.  They play up for the crowd... trust me.  OH MY GOD! (video).  ...this was with 2 outs in the bottom of the 11th down by 2.  I will always get chills from this.  I remember being at the ballpark (not PNC - a minor league ballpark where I was working in ticketing)  listening to this game on the radio with $100 on the buccos.  Fireworks night baby.  How do I end this post....

Lets Go Bucs.  Pirates.  Passion.  Pride.

Keeping busy is sometimes a challenge.  I wake up when I wake up.  I currently weigh about 170.  I am a very determined smart worker. 

Here is a general statement for you:  There will always be someone better off than you, and someone worse off than you.  The key to life is always comparing yourself to the guy who is worse off than you.

I have dogs all the time, they are a part of my life and always will be, dogs rule.

I like your offer of pittsburgh.  I will take it under consideration.  You sound like a cool person.



That's where I think you are finally wrong.

The key is realizing that the people 'below' you are miserable... but not as miserable as the people 'above' you.  For most people the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.  No matter where you are, unless you are Bill Gates or homeless, chances are you are riding the fence.  Enjoy the view of both and realize that you could never be better off than that in life.  More wealth = more responsibility and less appreciation of your life and the things that make it up.  No wealth = more appreciation, but no ability to actually utilize this appreciation to become happy, because you don't have the means to experience life.

People, just enjoy where you are.  Take in every moment of life, and use these moments to improve the future so that you can appreciate the time in the future even more.



And never under-estimate the power of an underdog.  Nothing to lose, everything to game.  In other words - Lets Go Bucs.  P

And that post was all about Pittsburgh and PNC Park the post on the last page sounded far more happy than this one.  But hey - this vanzack character is extremely intriguing and creative, 75,000 views of this thread, I'm not the only one interested in how he comes up with some of this stuff.

I just spent the last hour and a half reading this thread, and all I can say is...

Wow. This has been a fantastic read to say the least. Thanks to Van and Beets for doing this. Seriously.

What kind of shoes did you wear today?



How often do you brush your teeth?



When was the last time you drank until you puked?



Do you courtesy flush on the toilet?  I find that everyone either does this all the time or has never courtesy flushed in their life.
