Good things about getting your appendix out.

1. Pain meds. As much as you want. Everybody becomes your friend when they find out you have Rx pain meds. :o

2. Lots of pretty nurses. :D The woman doctor I had in the ER was very nice and gentle. :)

3. You get to tell the office to buzz off and take off for however many days you want. :wink:

4. Your parents do your laundry for you. Or mine did, anyway. :P

Things that don't suck about getting an appendix out:

1. That person is no longer carrying around a useless sack of flesh. Unless, of course, they are themselves a useless sack of flesh, in which case no amount of -ectomy will help them.

That's really all I can think of.

Idk if anybody besides Rumple will get this one, but we just had war declared on us solely because of me.

Sabrina's picture is pancakes... like mine. Mine has a story behind it from Nationals last year, idk about her's. But congrats on joining the awesome pancake picture club. We should make a club flag and slogan. :)

Does that have to do with Anthem... or am I just associating things... And yes, that flag will be awesome. I will trust responsibility in you to make something awesome... like pancakes.

Other things that don't suck:

(1) surviving Real Analysis (a.k.a. the class that caused me to miss the NAQT qualifier)
(2) winning $250 over a class-action lawsuit against Wal-Mart

Well, the game aside, I realized this after I posted it and laughed at the coincidence.

Also, Sabrina pointed out to me how if it had been anybody else making that post, nobody would've believed it.

I actually just learned minesweeper the other day from playing an MMO that had a minesweeper-style minigame.

This after 10 years of failing to learn it the normal way.

Chris on the other hand: that comment belongs in the other thread. (learn to minesweeper?)
