I know you were just kidding about beverages, but alcohol doesn't create hate out of thin air (or induce geographical and cultural ignorance, for that matter), it just removes the inhibitions that keep them hidden. No excuses - that kind of thing deserved to die out with the dinosaurs (along with walnut-sized brains). I definitely want to know who this guy is, so I can avoid his auctions like road rash and cartoon jerseys. And I'd love to tell him exactly why I'm avoiding him (maybe almost as well as Patrick so ably did), along with taking issue with his calling me a whimp [sic] and a trekkie. Those are my only reasons. I promise, it has nothing at all to do with tracking him down and giving him a DA crank enema of his own (with 53T ring still attached, of course - and don't think this 6'-2" 215lb "whimp" can't do it, either). ;-)

P.S. I checked with some of my Sikh friends, and they're pretty sure "prick" isn't Punjabi. :-)
