    I have placed six (6) different Apple Store orders throughout the course of a day, all on separate cards.
    20" iMac G5 w/ APP $1,518
    ip4200 printer $99
    ip4200 printer $99
    1.83 GHZ MBP $1,979
    Incase sleeve for MBP (green) $29
    iTunes gift certificate $10
    Best time ever spent maxing out cards... Priceless.

    Surely that qualifies for an honorable mention.

    Event: Loudest stadium
    Time: irrelevant - they just asked us all to cheer during the breaks in quarters
    Date: a Sunday in late September 2000 when the Denver Broncos were playing the New England Patriots in the old Mile High while the new one rose beside it.
    In the Book of Records? Who knows?

    They asked us all to cheer - we did. They announced a decibel figure that meant we were the loudest crowd and had broken the record but I'm unconvinced.

    We were in Kansas City the next night for a Chiefs/Seahawks MNF game and Arrowhead sounded much, much louder.

    What: Most people simultaneously slamming Tequila.
    When: If I remembered, you wouldn't believe me. It was last year though, the first half.
    In the Book of Records? I don't think we made it.

    I walked out of a lecture, was handed a Tequila shot, a slice of lemon and salt was sprinkled onto the back of my hand. I was then told to wait...



    ...And wait...



    ...Before being told to shot it and then I headed to my next class. Man, I lead an exciting life.

    I saw a guy with the longest eyebrow hair in the world.

    and honestly, I KNOW I can beat that, I got thick ol boiys.

    my problem is I pluck them too often, cuz lets face it, eyebrows gone crazy are ugly and gross.

    so everyday I pluck about 10-30, no lie, and generally they are 1/2" to 1" in length.

    I know this guys is 3"+ but if I let mine grow, itd be much longer.

    Im just not that interested in being labeled "gross" for ever.:D

    I'm afraid to ask, but is that the story behind the name? Please tell me that you were wee. Oh please tell me that. I may never be able look at the grease stains on the floor without wondering what I am looking at...

    Nope. The story behind the name is asoundingly uninteresting. And it was definitely not a problem with the bladder.
