We don't want the loonies taking over!



Hi Justy........NO, if you don't own any equipment that can receive a television signal then you do not pay for the license, it's only for TV owners, and old people don't pay at all, and if you happen to have just a black and white tv then you pay less too....!!...

I don't understand europeans either...Hey !!..I don't even understand myself !!

I cancelled my cable last year because we don't watch TV.  I get impatient with things that waste my time, like commercials (unless they are good) and pointless shows.  I love a good movie though.  My son just downloads whatever he wants to watch.



DONNAH...are you sure that's a bloke ?,going through metal detectors must be an ordeal !!...and perhaps he/she is already in the geriatric ward...I dare say, the with all that stuff he/she may not look much different in the later years

OK, ok..... my consious has been eating at me all day.  Since Donnah did so wonderfully at describing me with no information, I don't see how I can keep the rest of you guessing (so you can all thank Donnah)  I also broke down and figured out how to post a pic on here so if you wanna see the man behind the curtain you can go to that thread.
Well "aboot" me...   I'm 22 (sorry neil-o there is no past 25 years!)  I grew up in Central, Wisconsin.  I moved to Duluth, Minnesota to go to school.  I graduated this past December with a major in Biology and a minor in Economics (did a whoole econ minor just to avoid the one class I needed for my chem minor....THATS how much I hate chemistry)
After graduating I got a job as a research technician at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  I'm considering staying here for grad-school (when that time comes) as well, as its an AMAZING facility.  I've been here for about 2 months now.... I think I've learned more in the past 2 months than I did in 4.5 years of college.  I work in a drosophila lab, doing genetics research on a couple of projects.  Before my days as a lab-monkey I was an aquatics nerd.  I lifeguarded, and taught swimming lessons at more pools, lakes and aquatics facilities than I care to recall for 7 years.  I have just about every certification the Redcross ofters in first-aid or aquatics, and I've heald every aquatics position you could possibly imagine from the guy who scrubs the toilets in the lockerroom, to managing a park system with several pools.
As for my other interests in life, I am a huge music fan.  I spend WAY too much money on CDs and instruments.  I've played in several bands, some more successful than others.  I dabble in a lot of instruments, but my two main ones are Drumset, and trombone.  I'm also into outdoors activities (I too would be more than happy wanderint the world living out of a rucsack....we should start a club.  I almost did decide to spend a year living in the Ozarks out of my tent, but the fact that I had already put the work intohalf of a semester of college at that point made it sensless to waste that.....someday!), I especially enjoy backpacking, canooeing, and hunting.  I'm also into athletics.  I enjoy endurance sports, running has always been my thing but lateley triathlons have been tripping my trigger.  I love watching football (the American variety) and am a HUGE Greenbay Packers fan!
hmmmm.... guess thats "about me"

I play voice.  In other words, I sing.  Not very well yet, but with a bit of work it could be decent.

I finally found a video game I can kick Steve and his friends' butts with.  He bought a kareokee game where you sing along and it scores you.  My first three songs were two platinum and a gold record and I unlocked a new song.  He hasn't invited me back to play again yet.
