That's not really a bad thing.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

That was a very insightful and interesting piece, Cyrano.

I recently friended Marco on Facebook, actually, and was very surprised to find most of his posts are very political in nature - as are some of my friends on FB, all of whom are very vocal in their opinions of the current state of affairs. That's all well and good - it's perfectly within their rights - but what sucks is, I feel that were I to lay my own opinion down, be it an opposing viewpoint or devil's advocate argument, instead of turning into a discourse/civil discussion, it would probably turn into threats of violence and a flurry of unfriending. :(

Anyway that was the first thing I thought of when I saw this on the Front PageTM, and was glad it wasn't in that vein. :)

It will come as no surprise to anyone that my position on this is "what he said."

Glasses aside, I can't believe Cyrano would wear that hat.

I actually don't really like games.

A man that would gladly wear a tricorn hat to work will wear ANY hat.

Not a tricorn.

Front-and-back bicorn.

I've been confused with Doug again.

In no way do we condone the wearing of a bicorn 'athwartship' rather than 'fore-and-aft'.

Too bad press gangs aren't tolerated any longer, huh?  :D

Only an Italian would do such a thing.
