Agatha confessed that she had noticed some small, yet noticeable physical changes in her son over the past six months. "For one thing, he started to grow more hair; a lot of hair." she said.

He'd looked just like my brother, Leo and he's 67 years old.


what's up with that 8-o


Yeah who the hell checks out their 13 year old son while hes taking a shower? :-t

A varsity letter (or monogram) is an award earned in the United States by regular participation or excellence in a school sport. Traditionally, a varsity letter signifies that its winner was a stand-out varsity athlete.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varsity_letter

Letters in high school has VASTLY lost their original meaning. They give out letters for everything now, or at least my old high school district does. Letters for math team, volunteer clubs, band, orchestra, dance club, thesbians, etc. Even the volunteer trash cleanup kids got varsity letters for their jackets.

Maybe it's a conscious effort eliminate some of the reasons why high school cliques form or maybe it's just some school spirit thing, but that Wikipedia definition of the varsity letter is terribly out of date in my area.

Chess as an Olympic sport!?!?!? Gimme a f***in' break! :-t

At least when they were making noise about getting billiards in the Olympics they were still talking about something that had the hand-eye coordination aspect of things... :-?

"Sport" originated as either hunting or physical domination games, such as wrestling. Therefore, naming something an Olympic sport should be considered with that in mind, IMO.

"Games" began as war games -- chess would be in that class. This would involve competitions not defined under "sport".

The Olympics should revisit their own history before allowing some of this crap. Oh wait, I forgot...it is about money...silly me. :-/

Ping pong requires movement. Key word - movement.

Well so does chess then. Movement of the hands and eyes :-b

Besides, sometimes those games of chess with them clocks can get pretty fast.

I could see chess players taking Adderall.. I believe that's the drug that college students abuse to stay up all night studying.
