"There's so much sadness in this world. For example, right now, as you read this, 17 million Americans are having sex, but you're on the computer!"

Damn you Colin... I didn't want to know that out of rougly 6 billion, I'm one of the few not getting any.
And I apparently can't read or do math... Now that news really saddens me...
Yeah, what she said!

Since when are sex and net surfing incompatable?
I dunno, but Al Lowe
seems like the sort of person who'd be an authority on the subject. Of sex and net surfing, I mean, not not getting any.
I don't know, man. If he thinks thatit's funny to say that your order is "to go" while in the drive-thru, he' missing the fact that kid on the other end of the speaker has either heard it a dozen times already today, or doesn't care enough to notice in the first place. And the guys who ask for it "for here" while in drive-thru deserve massive head trauma via a petrified Mac middle.
Where does he say that? I couldn't find it but I get the feeling that (like many of the things on the site) it's not his joke. He just collects a lot of that stuff and archives it there. Most of the good stuff on the site pertains to the games he wrote when he worked for Sierra, especially Leisure Suit Larry, which is what I was referring to.
why they didn't keep me in drive through:
Guy rolls up to drive through.
I ask him how may I help him.
Guy orders an 'oil' McFlurry.
Thinking I just smoked some crack, I asked him if he could repeat his order.
He re orders an 'oil' McFlurry.
I tell him sorry, list the flavors of McFlurry, and if he'd like one of those.
He says no and orders something else stupid in the form of McFlurry.
I tell him that flavor is not available, but that we did have a 'grease' McFlurry if he was interested.
He was not.
Then, I think he actually ordered something.
This really happened. It was quite stupid. I'd probably handle it differently now than I did then, but now I'm wondering if this allowe.com guy didn't have somehting to do with it.

Well, we've just found a bunch of us with a similar situation. Maybe we could hook something up.
