Tom Schreiner. I read some of his stuff yesterday. Didn't help in my exam, though there was a question on it.

Yes!!! I can't believe I rated high enough to go on the list!

America misses you.

Mike... amen.

Have you seen the black squirrels? They're pretty cool.

It's kind of funny, but I read the list and kept thinking..."I've never heard of this, and what's that?" The US is a big country. We don't say "ya'll" in the north. In Kentucky, I might need people to repeat things as well.

Borg, black squirrels are cool. They are more rare though and most people in our country have never seen them either.

Mike, why are cars wierd?

Never been to Popeyes. They don't have them in upstate NY.
