Tell Me Something I Don't Know. I'll Go First:
I, Dinger, wanted to be a concert pianist, until I realized that being paralyzed (stage fright) would probably be a bit of a draw back.

1. I, grannylib, wanted to be a ballerina, until I realized that being
a complete klutz would probably be a bit of a drawback.

4. I, Nevernose, wanted to be an astronaut
Until I discovered that not only would I have to serve in the military, but being blind in one eye, I probably couldn't get into either the military or NASA.

5. I've learned that living nearer to Green Bay....
...does not automatically score you Packers tickets (unless you're willing to pay the big $$).

Well, OK - of course you know this, but *I* didn't. :hi:

7. I'm Going To Training Camp Tomorrow
I'll try to get pics up, but I'm a dummy- I don't know how to upload pics with a Mac (iBook). :)

6. I wanted to be a gymnast
but it seems you have to keep your eyes open, especially on the really scary tricks.

9. You gave up and quit.
Courage is facing fear and carrying on.

I am terribly disappointed in you.

GET YOUR ASS BACK OUT ON A STAGE AND START PERFORMING AGAIN.

When Peyton Manning throws an interception, do you think he takes off his helmet, sits down on the bench and quits the team? HELL NO.

Failure is a part of life. In fact, failure is a necessary part of learning and growing into what one is to become.

From now on, I am taking a personal interest in your life. I am mad at you.

:smoke:

13. Something you dont know? Okay....
The quenching constant (Kq) in the Stern-Volmer relationship for meso-tetraphenyltetrabenzoporphyrin phosphorescence halflife decay is about 5.25*10^5 moles-1 second-1 at 295 degrees K and 760 torr when the quencher is plasma-dissolved molecular oxygen and the diffusion membrane at the phosphor surface is divinylbenzene crosslinked polystyrene, therefore making the diffusion coefficient negligable for Oxygen (Fick's math is unecessary).

dude, you asked.

Im a :freak:
