<<14.At the local Radio Shack, you're greeted like Norm at Cheers>>
I once walked into a Radio Shack and told the salesman that I wanted a computer that had some RAM and a hard disk. You should have SEEN what he tried to sell me!
<<12.You receive a grant from the International Plaid Foundation >>
My wife threw away all my plaid clothes years ago, the double knit stuff too.
<<7.You prefer to be thought of as an "artist who works in the medium of ASCII" >>
I once frame a code listing because I thought the indented commands, when viewed from afar were artistic. The embedded parenthisized commands, when viewed from close were also artistic. I once wrote a one line command for checking if a year was a leap year. Its beauty brought me to tears.
<<1.You know how to say, "I can't go swimming -- I've eaten less than 2 hours ago." in 5 languages >>
I DID buy a swimming pool. My family tells me that it's great.
