    Another factor to consider, although a minor one I'll admit, is that not everyone can use VR. I don't mean simply don't want to, it doesn't work for some. Why? Only one eye makes VR non-operational....

    Oh, I never denied it!
    I like to eat. Do it a few times a day. Sadly, not as active as the young Marine who developed the eating habits, so it just doesn't stay off my waist like it used to :D

    When you use canned air, it's a good idea to use a small wooden stick, like a chopstick from a chinese restaurant, to keep the blades from being turned by the flow of air. Especially since it's a...

    You just used the radio stations so you could listen to "THE Game" to while away the time on those long night flights :D

    It's a beautiful lake and surround. Except in winter, when the snow is so deep, they don't even try to plow the roads. Some roads they DO make tunnels under the snow for, so the Rangers can get to...
