I knew there was a 57.3876% chance that that would happen this year, based on your age, weight, and McNugget/Heineken differential

I'm sorry to note this here, but I didn't see an "e-mail me" button on your sidebar. Thought you'd want to know that the boxes on your sidebar are migrating a little to the left on my display (Mac/IE) and are obscuring some of the text in your entries.

Grr. This is one of those CSS issues that I had hoped not to face. The body looks fine in IE6/Win, Opera, and Firefox. The banner looks fine in IE6/Win and Firefox and has a small gap in Opera. Of course, since I don't have access to a Mac, that would be the one platform that it doesn't look correct on!

I'll do some research and maybe some more tweaking tonight. I see from a quick Google that there are CSS issues involving absolutely-positioned elements between IE/Mac and other browsers.

I don't exactly know what an actuary is, am hiding from a cat that is seeking to destroy me and desperately in search of a bit of cheese, so don't mind me.

Hmmm, you leave a hint, and still no cheese.

Hey, i heard this today ;-)

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed.

The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.
He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?"

The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

A person asks, "What is 1+1?"

An accountant pulls out his financial calculator, punches in "1+1=" and punches in "-1-1" and says "two".

An Actuary says, "What do you want it to be?"

An student majoring in arts says, "Do you want fries with that?"
