Things you just don't get - Page 653

post #9781 of 15002
A colleague of mine is fond of using "map" as a verb to replace plan, or document, or draw. Like "let's map out the process we are going to follow".

I think I'm going to one-up him and start saying "let's cartograph this"

I knew you were racist against my people.

Curling was invented in medieval Scotland, with the first written reference to a contest using stones on ice coming from the records of Paisley Abbey, Renfrewshire, in February 1541.

In fact, doubly racist against me:

Today, the game is most firmly established in Canada, having been taken there by Scottish emigrants. The Royal Montreal Curling Club, the oldest established sports club still active in North America,[9] was established in 1807.

Ever since Burt Reynolds passed away it's tough to find someone who can so convincingly play a badass.

You should look into an NTI bite guard. They don't work for everyone, but for the lucky people they do, they eliminate grinding and all its side effects.

If curling is in the winter games, then shuffleboard needs to be part of the summer games. And poker.

I got caught up in that as a kid. I just *twitch* stopped taking *hic* the *shudder* drugs, and I *hic* seem to have turned out just fine!

When people say "vino," are they trying to sound like a jagoff or do they not know they sound like a jagoff?
