NYPOST: Over 14,500 text msgs in ONE MONTH?

The California man's 13-year-old daughter, Reina, racked up an astonishing 14,528 text messages in one month. The online AT&T statement ran 440 pages.
"First, I laughed. I thought, 'That's insane, that's impossible,' " the 45-year-old dad said. "And I immediately whipped out the calculator to see if it was humanly possible."
He found it was - barely.
It works out to 484 text messages a day, or one every two minutes of every waking hour.
"Then I thought maybe AT&T made some mistake on the bill," said Hardesty, of Silverado Canyon.
The reporter for the Orange County Register grilled his daughter on her texting habit - by text message, of course.
"Who are you texting, anyway? Your entire school?" he asked.
"Well, a lot of my friends have unlimited texting. I just text them pretty much all the time," she explained.
She messages a core of "four obsessive texters" - all girls between the ages of 12 and 13 - on her LG phone.
Reina had a karaoke birthday party, and while other people were singing, she was texting her best friend sitting right next to her.
She even texted her friends to brag about the high number of text messages she had logged when her parents got the statement.
Her texting soared last month because "it was winter break and I was bored," Reina told her parents.
Luckily, Hardesty has a phone plan that allows unlimited texting for $30 a month. Otherwise, he estimates, he would have owed AT&T $2,905.60 at a rate of 20 cents per message.
The average number of monthly texts for a 13- to 17-year-old teen is 1,742, according to a Nielsen study of cellphone usage.
Hardesty admits he himself punches in 900 messages a month - 700 more than average for his age group, according to Nielsen.
Hardesty and his ex-wife have since placed restrictions on Reina's cellphone use, ruling she cannot text after dinner.

A kiss to forget

Now I think this is gross, but I would like to know what others think...
A kiss to remember

Don't ever kiss me like this. YECH.

How smart are you? Or how smart is your right foot?

"The richest person is not the one who has most, but the one who needs least!"


This is hysterical. You have to try this. It is absolutely true. I guessthere are some things that the brain cannot handle.HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT?You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believethis!!!
It is from an orthopedic surgeon............
This will boggleyour mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if youcan outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!
1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now,while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand.
Your foot will change direction.
I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your friends to frustrate them too

And he thinks he has a "good, strong record"?

From the Washington Post:

With seven days left until he surrenders power, Bush will have to do a heck of a sales job to convince the nation of this. Further complicating his last-minute legacy rehabilitation: Nobody seems to be paying attention. The White House had high expectations for yesterday's final, historic news conference. "ONE CORRESPONDENT PER ORGANIZATION," proclaimed the bulletin sent to reporters. "STANDING ROOM ONLY FOR NON-SEAT HOLDERS." But when the appointed hour of 9:15 a.m. arrived, the last two rows in the seven-row briefing room were empty, and a press aide told White House interns to fill those seats.

HA HA HA. WHy did anyone show up is my question. To hear more lies and BS I guess.

So let's let the guy stay in his penthouse, send off gifts..

Well, if this guy did what they say he did, why does he get to walk about? I swear, if you are poor, and steal a loaf of bread, they can toss you in jail, and throw away the key. But this guy....I will never understand "justice" in my own country. It does not exist.

By Larry Neumeister, Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK — A judge allowed disgraced money manager Bernard Madoff to remain free on bail Monday, rejecting an attempt by prosecutors to send him to jail for mailing more than $1 million in jewelry to family and friends over the holidays.
The decision is sure to outrage investors who have been clamoring for Madoff to be sent to jail for allegedly carrying out the largest financial fraud in history.
Prosecutors said the gifts were grounds to have his bail revoked because what's left of Madoff's assets will have to be returned to burned investors.
But the judge not swayed by their arguments that Madoff represents an economic danger to the community because of the size of the fraud and his actions in sending the gifts. Judges in bail decisions normally consider two main factors: whether the defendant is a flight risk or a danger to the community.

At a complete loss, again. I signed up to be a member of Dorries Fun Forum yesterday. I used my email address, new userID for her forum as "Noone", and I know my password. Well, today I check, and I can't login. Userid doesn't match email address. Email address with password does not work. WHat The Hell is Going On? And if I look at the forum, it has me attached to someone in BOLIVIA of all places. I am not in Bolivia, and I don't have any plans to go there...ever. WHY ME?
