    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Hey, you're selecting on the sample. It's not going to be random.

    Am I the only one who paid attention in that class?

    Considering that 3,551 people have registered as members of Cyburbia; that 732 are listed as active;
    11 chosen to have respond so far; and 2 ? of them are international members.

    Besides by starting this thread after 5 pm on a friday was almost a guarantee of a low response,
    I would say so far it has been random, although clustered.

    in need of 15 more answer sets
    Sorry but you dont know how many answer sets she had to/has collect/ed
    and by adding these answers to a larger pool answers may improve the randomness.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Thank you so much.
    BTW, yes, this class really stinks but I have to get through it. As far as I'm concerend this is random enough. I will not pick and choose, I will just start at the top and add as many as I need to my data sheet.

    I truly appreciate it!
