    Combining Thread Titles

    I glanced at the screen (I may have been a little sleepy) and read two thread titles as one.

    This is what I thought I saw.....

    "I saw something today that really made me want to Pimp my 29er"

    Then I saw....

    "God was in Boulder the other day Life as I know it is over"

    Maybe I need to get a life (or perhaps just some sleep)...

    "My buddies bachelor party is tonight ED Med Poale"

    Turns out that since 1/23/08 you have started 200 threads. You have to go back to 3/06/07 to find 200 threads started by me.

    Sounds like the pot is calling the kettle black.

    I Was Sitting In A Bus Station....

    "My buddies bachelor party is tonight ED Med Poale"
    Back in my college days I had a girlfriend who was going to school in another part of the state. Being broke and without a car, I was frequently reduced to taking the Greyhound bus to go and visit her. Worse, the bus schedule required that I make a change in Richmond, Virginia, in a very nasty part of town.

    Anyway, I was sitting in the bus station in Richmond on my way back home one Sunday evening - looking and feeling my very best, I might add - when a clean cut gentleman a few years older than me (I was around 20 or so) sat down on the bench and started up a conversation. I was only half listening because, as I said, I was looking and feeling my very best after a long weekend.

    Anyway, at one point in the conversation I thought that the guy had asked me "If you had the opportunity, would you like a ride out of here?" Thinking that it was some sort of attempt at a pick up line, I quickly and rather firmly told him "Naah. Ive already got my ticket out of here." and buried my nose in a book. My answer left him very troubled and perplexed. After a minute or so of me ignoring him he got up, walked over to the pay phone, and made a call. Call ended, he walked back over to my bench, sat down, and said -

    "I think that you misunderstood me. I asked you if you had the opportunity, would you like to live forever? and not whether you would like a ride." He opened up his briefcase and whipped out a copy of the King James version of the Bible, along with a few pamphlets.

    Whoops. Wrong kind of bus station pest.

    However, seeing that my non-sequitur had apparently caused enough of an existential crisis in his proselytizing that he had to call the home office for backup, I decided to hold my ground.

    "Nope, I heard you." I nonchalantly looked down at my watch. "And if things are running on time I'll be out of here soon. Thanks anyway."

    I have no idea what he made of this, but he very quickly packed up his stuff and headed back over to the phone. By this time my bus was boarding, so I grabbed my backpack and split. I've always wondered whether my unconscious-yet-weirdly-appropriate response to his attempt to gain a convert caused him question his own religious calling.
