    Americans can't adverb. You know this, Ender Sai.

    In other news, the braggart with the contracts on page 1... is he the chap who's very pleased with an intermediate bench? If so, I think I'd like to enquire about his squat, deadlift and power clean numbers.

    I think you already have it. I just enjoy reminding the bench and biceps brigade that they're **** weak.

    I tend to say either "I'm okay" or "I'm alright".....but usually thinking the second option.

    I just saw this exchange that I thought was interesting:

    1st person: hi, how are you

    2nd person: hi, how are you


    This phrase is meaningless.

    Oh, Pete would mop the floor with Bowen... and he'd do it with a gracious and sincere smile on his face.

    "Does anybody really know what time it is?
    Does anybody really care?
    If so, I can't imagine why.
    We've all got time enough to cry."

    Yeah. I say, "I'm good, thank you. How are you?"

    Now I have that song stuck in my head. And I'm getting it mixed up with "Saturday in the Park." Damn you, Chicago!

    It's pleasing that when asked about your health, you assure the person asking you're not evil.

    Even knowing that's coming, I've got nothin'.

    And Darth Guy, that's why early Chicago was so damn good! Now, get "25 or 6 to 4" out of your head!

    Fat chance of that, but dream on! I'm sure in your nerd-gasm steroid-induced fantasy, a near 300 pound max bench is "intermediate." Back in the real world, though, there are only about 1 in 1,000 people who will ever bench what I can bench already. And I'm still on my way up. So keep talking a big game! Because that's literally ALL you can do is talk, while other people work.

    Bowen, shouldn't you be serving people hors d'oeuvers and assuring them this is just temporary until your film career takes off?

    If civility weren't an issue, my answer would be "**** do you care?"

    I tell them how I am, how things are going, and ask how things are actually going with them.

    I hate empty pleasantries.

    I don't even like saying hi to people. It's often unnecessary. I don't say hi to people I'm already familiar with.

    2 is a spate?

    In any event, I wanted to see how many people had no idea how to correctly answer a basic question.

    11, on the JC at least.

    What's next, a thread on the kiss hello? Or is that banned in Australia, with anyone attempting to do so getting sent to the Island with the asylum seekers?
