Subj:     Places I Have Been (S814)
          From: virv on 8/15/2012

 I have been in many places, but I've rarely been in Cahoots.
 Apparently, you can't go alone.  You have to be in Cahoots
 with someone.

 I've also never been in Cognito.  I hear no one recognizes
 you there.

 I have, however, been in Sane.  They don't have an airport;
 you have to be driven there.  I have made several trips
 there, thanks to my friends, family and work.  I live close
 so it's a short drive.

 I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump,
 and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

 I have also been in Doubt.  That is a sad place to go, and
 I try not to visit there too often.

 I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important
 to stand firm.

 Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm
 getting older.

 One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense!  It really
 gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart!

 At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

 And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me
 I am not.

 People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've
 never been there before!

 I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the
 easier it is to get there. I actually kind of enjoy it there.

 So far, I haven't been in Continent; but my travel agent
 says I'll be going soon.

Subj:     Bon Jovi Sings 'She Don't Know Me'
          In Benicia (S702b,d)
          From: Rosie Switzer on Facebook on 6/26/10
 Source: http://www.youtube.com/embed/omLgJe9cnCw

 "She Don't Know Me" is the second single from American
 rock band Bon Jovi's debut album, Bon Jovi, released
 January 21, 1984.  It was written by Mark Avsec (of
 Donnie Iris and The Cruisers fame).

 Bon Jovi is an American rock band from Sayreville, New
 Jersey.  Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi consists of lead singer
 and namesake Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora,
 keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres as well as
 current bassist Hugh McDonald.  The band's line-up has
 remained mostly static during their 26-year history, the
 only exception being the departure of Alec John Such in
 1994, who was unofficially replaced by Hugh McDonald.
.
The music video for "Sings She Don't
Know Me" was filmed in Benicia showing
Tia Teresa's bar, former whore houses on
First Street, Jack London's favorite bar,
The Lido, and many other spots.  The
picture on the left is the front of Tia
Teresa's bar.

Subj:     Texas Vs California (S732)
          From: ft.apache on 1/16/2010

 CALIFORNIA:

 The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along
 a nature trail.  A coyote jumps out and attacks the
 Governor's dog, then bites the Governor.  The Governor
 starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi"
 and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is
 only doing what is natural.

 He calls Animal Control.

 Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the State
 $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

 He calls a veterinarian.

 The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200
 testing it for diseases.

 The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting
 checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his
 bite wound bandaged.

 The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish
 ? Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area
 is now free of dangerous animals.

 The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing
 a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.

 The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to
 better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the
 disease throughout the world.

 The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping
 the attack.  The State spends $150,000 to hire and train
 a new agent with additional special training regarding
 the nature of coyotes.

 PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5
 million suit against the State.
 

 TEXAS:

 The Governor of Texas is jogging with her dog along a
 nature trail.

 A coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.  The Governor
 shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and
 keeps jogging.

 The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point
 cartridge.  The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

 And that, my friends, is why California is broke and
 Texas is not.

Subj:   You Know You're From The Bay Area When... (S10)
        From Micheal.Janniro on 97-03-28

 You make $100,000 a year, yet still can't find
    a place to live.
 Your commute time is 45 minutes and you live 8 miles
    away from work.
 Stop asking how much things cost but, ask "How long
    will it take?"
 Two-Thirds of the people you know are from Boston or
    New York, but you are living in PST.
 Know vast differences difference between Thai, Vietnemese,
    Japanese, Cantonese, and Korean food.
 Your home computer contains mostly hardware/software that is
    not on the consumer market yet.
 Go to "The City" on weekends but don't live there because
    you like your car.
 Think that "I'm going to Fry's." is an acceptable excuse to
    leave the office for a while, and your boss does too.
 Lost your alarm clock. You'll get to work when you get there.
 Go to an industrial-heavy-metal bar and see two guys get
    into a fight over what flavor of unix is better.
 Own more than 10 articles of clothing that have hardware/software
    companies printed on them. Bonus for embroidered stuff.
 You know where Woz Way, Resistor Ave, and Floppy Dr are located.
 You know who Woz is.
 You know 280 North runs west, and 680 N runs East.
 Even though Microsoft employs quite a few programmers in
    the Bay Area, they only work on Powerpoint, and the
    company is still the embodiment of Satan.
 You see a billboard that says "FGPA2ASIC" and aren't phased.
 When you need the updated Diamond Monster 3D drivers,
    you just walk across the street.
 You have more bandwidth in your apartment or condo
    than most major universities.
 Your workplace vending machines dispense "100% natural
    twig-bars" right next to Jolt cola and Instant Espresso mix.

From: DR SWITZER on 98-02-24 (S56)
 You know you're living in the Bay Area when . . . you
    have to move your house into the street because of
    mudslides, and then you have to register your house
    with the DMV.

Subj:     You Know You're A Native Noo Awleanian If:
          From: RFSlick on 7/22/99

 Your sunglasses fog up when you step outside.
 You don't think it inappropriate to refer to a large adult
    male as "Li'l Bubba."
 No matter where else you go in the world, you are always
    disappointed in the food.
 You get up in the morning and start a pot of rice to cooking
    before you give any thought to what you'll fix for dinner.
 Your loved one dies and you book a jazz band before you call
    the coroner.
 You think the breeze from a flying roach feels good on a hot
    summer night.
 You can sing these jingles by heart:
    "Rosenberg's, Rosenberg's, 1825 Tulane" "At the beach,
    at the beach, at Pontchartrain Beach..."
 You were a high school graduate before you realized that
    Catholic and Public were not two major religions.
 Your baby's first words are "long beads."
 You ask, "How they running?" and "Are dey fat?" but you're
    inquiring about seafood quality and not the Cresent City
    Classic.
 When a hurricane is imminent, you have a lot more faith in
    Nash Roberts than Super Doppler 6000.
 Your town is low on the education chart, high on the obesity
    chart and you don't care because you're No. 1 on the party
    chart.
 Nothing shocks you. Period. Ever - not politics, hurricanes,
    red lights, parking tickets, the Saints, Mardi Gras...
 Your one-martini lunch becomes a five-bloody Mary afternoon...
    and you keep your job.
 You're walking in the French Quarter with a plastic cup of beer.
 When it starts to rain, you cover your beer instead of your head.
 Your idea of health food is a baked potato instead of fries
    with your seafood platter.
 You have to take your coffee and favorite coffeemaker with
    you on a three-day trip.
 You exhibit the "doubloon reflex" by stomping runaway coins
    with your foot.
 You have sno-ball stains on your shoes.
 You call tomato sauce "red gravy".
 Your middle name is your mother's maiden name or your father's
    mother's maiden name or your mother's mother's maiden name
    or your grandmother's mother's maiden name or your grand-
    father's mother's maiden name.
 You know you recycled too much newspaper when there isn't
    enough for the dinner (or crawfish) table.
 You are going through customs and the agent asks you where
    you're from and you answer, "Gentilly."
 On certain spring days, crawfish Monica is your breakfast.
 You eat sno-balls instead of throwing them.
 Your house payment is less than your utility bill.
 You've done your laundry in a bar.
 You push little old ladies out of the way to catch
    Mardi Gras throws.
 You look forward to being smashed by a hurricane.
 Catching "crabs" makes you smile.
 You write "crookedpolitician" as all one word.
 You know it's "ask" but you purposely say "ax".
 You understand it when someone describes their favorite color
    as K?B purple.
 You know how to mispronounce street names correctly.
    (Melpomene, Terpsichore, Chartres, etc.)
 You know that Tchoupitoulas is a street and not a disease.
 You can "boo" the mayor on national television.
 Beignets are the major cause of your gallstones.
 You wear sweaters in October because it ought to be cold.
 Someone asks you "Where you at?" and you tell them
    how you are.
 You are left behind at an out-of-town bar searching for
    a "go cup."
 You think of potholes as naturally occurring speed bumps.
 Your grandparents are called "Maw Maw" and "Paw Paw."
 Your Santa Claus rides an alligator, Your favorite Saint is
    a football player, you suck heads, sing the blues and you
    actually know where you got them shoes.
 You shake out your shoes before putting them on.
 You know why you should never, ever swim by the Lake
    Pontchartrain steps (for more than one reason).
 You cringe every time you hear an actor with a Southern or
    Cajun accent in a "New Orleans-based" movie or TV show.
 You have to reset your clocks after every thunderstorm.
 You still call the Fairmont Hotel the Roosevelt.
 You consider garbage cans a legal step to protecting your
    parking space on a public street.
