"If we allow women here, it will no longer be a place of silence..." - A (very) wise monk from Mt. Athos being interviewed by 60 Minutes
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

Did anyone here ever take great amounts of McDonalds hamburgers (like 40 or something) plus some french fries to school to eat it in the break at ten in the morning with four or five friends?

No, though that sounds cool. And it also reminds me of a Salute Your Shorts episode.

It's quite nice. Some of the vegetarians were appalled, though.

Oh and I got excema when I was on it.

Seriously this crap should be illegal. I can't even talk about some of the side effects, too vulgar for this forum.

Did a quick wiki on him. Looks like he trains in Wheat Ridge, it's about a 45 minute or so drive from here if I take I-25.

I live in Castlewood, south of Denver, but not near Colorado Springs.

There are some other color ways for sale on Reebok'a website.

Good for you. The entire spectacle is ridiculous. Concepts like "less is more," subtlety, substance, and originality are jettisoned in favor of the lowest common denominator. An otherwise good game diminished by all the inane flair that surrounds it. But the Super Bowl is apparrently the best representation of what America is all about (according to Donny Deutsch.)  I actually agree with him. The Super Bowl indeed epitomizes "Americanism." Of course I don't say this as a compliment. But I know that there are those who enjoy exposing their children to this spectacle of profanity, lewdness, and godless shenanigans. To each his own I guess.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to call it Babylonian.  Then again, the less poetic might mock you for it.

But Vamrat cares not for mockery.

He has no time for Babylonian super bowls.

Unless they are from KFC.  Their bowls truly are super.
