    I love Laser Tilt's thread, but the timing of this is suspicious considering the POTY nominations are being considered. Please follow me on twitter for more commentary on this issue. @twitter.com/theshartster

    The only thing American workers can "build" today are grande mocha lattes with an extra shot and smiley face in the foam.

    80% of the grandchildren or great grandchildren of these hard working citizens are probably claiming some type of disability to get out of working.

    Don't know if LT will win poster of the year and all the accouterments and prizes that are bestowed on the grand champion. However that boy is a cornucopia of interesting pictures, stories and facts!

    If that was today, she'd weigh 800 pounds and have a gross tattoo.

    I'm complaining because I twisted my knee somehow. Probably bumped it with my laptop bag, or maybe against my desk as I moved my ergonomic chair back.

    Damn, those guys did real work! Must have hurt like hell when they came home.
