@Night- OK. Check out the little book, at least the first one. Pretty funny stuff I think you'd enjoy. Can get used one cheap from that Big-Mouthed River site, or 'reed' parts free on Google Books. Peace, out.

Like I said, I got it the first time. It was only after you went on a "read" "red" kick did I start looking for errors. Our two "fabulous" moderators and 97 wouldn't have gotten otherwise.

Interesting @Nightrider Sir well then whatever the truth is I will *yield to it* with a great sense of demureness.
@Night---since you're determined to change the law on me, let's talk about Murphy's Law. There was a fine little book from the mid-80s by that title, written by Arthur Bloch, which later became a whole book series a la "Chicken Soup for the..."
His book had the complete Murphy's Law, with hundreds of extensions, extrapolations & corollaries. The one I find most applicable here on WikiFeet (and in real-life ogling of women) is the Law of Observation, which states:
"Nothing looks as good close up as it does from far away. Or---nothing looks as good from far away as it does up close."

Nope. It IS and always has been MURPHY'S. I guess someone thought it would be funny to change the spelling at one point given the defintion of Murphy's Law. No doubt trying (but not succeeding) to follow in the footsteps of the genius who's attempting to coin the phrase "Drucken Funk." Oh it's funny, that's for sure. Not gut busting funny, however.

Correct @BackInBlack60 Sir ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muphry%27s_law
Sorry, Night. It *is* in fact MUPHRY's LAW, and NOT MURPHY's LAW that I intended. I know what I mean, and if you had red my Wikipedia link, you'd know that they are distinctly different, although both are equally binding upon the universe, just like gravity. And Karma.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I ain't "mad." ===> :) It ain't "Muphry's," though. It's Murphy's.
@Night- Very true story, still have his e-mail, and he was read in the face. I've got an even better story, but would tend to be personally identifiable if former coworkers saw it. Unlikely, but not impossible. It was bad, but not quite as bad as this:
I hate it when Windows wants to download updates for the Antarctica keyboard driver. That and 'Bing Bar.'

While reding* through what you wrote, I believed everything but the "Once I had a friend" part. (lolol) No, I get it. Funny thing is, on keyboards in America, the letter "A" is a little ways away from the "R" "E" and "D". Matter of fact, those three are in their own little cluster. Are keyboards in "Antarctica" different?
*Don't have a cow. I left out the "a" on porpoise.
My point was I've got a friggin' English degree, and I make some of those mistakes out of haste, not knowledge (then blame the batteries in my wireless keyboard). Once had a friend with Masters in English Lit from an ivy league send me a few proofreading tips, and in about four brief sentences, he'd made about three errors! He said afterward, "Guess I should have read it slowly out loud before sending it!"
Or as they say, "Muphry's law spares no one!" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muphry%27s_law Even you, @Nightrider.
