33. just to let you know, his name starts with "paine" not "pain," with an "e"
Edited on Thu Mar-17-05 12:19 PM by Nothing Without Hope
which I mention because you will probably enjoy the allusion to Thomas Paine, the famous journalist gadfly of the American patriots during the Revolutionary War. He WAS a pain in the arse to the British occupiers, as a gadfly is. Great pun and references in a short username in my opinion. Thought you'd like to know, so I hope you'll excuse my school-lecture moment here.
