Introspection

I never really get personal on my blog. Mainly, it's all opinionated, heated, overly passionate and uninteresting. Frankly, I don't know why anyone reads my corner on the web.

There may be more of these too. Who knows?

    I can agree with 1/3,
    I have no opinion on 1/3,
    and, I strongly disagree with 1/3.

    I think we could get along. :)

    Fun post. I enjoyed learning a little about someone who's blog I read daily (via the Utah Open Source Planet).

    Yes, Mr Pibb is NOT Dr. Pepper. If anyone tries to tell me that it is, I just want to punch them in the nose.

    After reading your list, I figured out that I am more liberal than I thought I was, but still lean more to the right.

    Thanx for the post, it's good to know I actually understand my friends...somewhat.

    Cheers,

    Herlo

    Did you realise that you both
    love to read,
    and hate to read?
