    Hopefully a few hurricanes came nowhere near you.

    It's better to be lucky than to be good. Discuss.

    Nope.

    There is certainly an overestimation of good that can be attributed to luck by many. In fact, I believe there are studies to that end.

    Maria Konnikova wrote an interesting book on that subject -- "The Biggest Bluff" -- using no-limit Texas hold'em poker as a model and lived example of trying to find the line between luck and skill. Enjoyable audiobook if you like poker or psychology. (She has a PhD in psychology, and took up NL hold'em based upon some reading suggesting it was a good model for her purposes. She ended up playing the major international circuit including the WSOP main event.)

    Itís amazing how quickly feet start to smell like feet after birth.

    Wearing socks traps the sweat even without shoes. I lived in AZ during my high school years, it is a dry heat. I often didn't wear socks because, well, I was young and there were little to no repercussions. By the end of my first week in Durham, I couldn't keep my shoes in the room they smelled so bad.

    Yes well I'm glad I ate dinner early.
    That's a man problem.
    We ladies keep it together.

    I did NOT expect whiz to be the first cheese taken off the big board.

    Favorite cheese? Probably Port Salut. Although that's a little bit like asking to pick a favorite child.
