Most overrated individuals of all time:

5. Bono: Wake me up when you can write a good song

4. Ben Bernanke: This is the asshat hat gets Man of the Year? What a joke.

3. FDR: I admit he was a great president but he didn't do near as much as people really believe he did. He was just president at the right time.

2. Duke of Wellington: Congrats. You beat an exiled ex-Emperor who was dying of stomach cancer and leading a bunch of ex-soldiers who joined in with him at the last second. Wanna cookie?

1. JFK: You didn't do shit your whole presidency. Yeah, we didn't have a nuclear war, but that was more Bobby's doing then you.Yeah we got to the Moon but who cares? We were going to eventually anyways... But it WAS you that escalated Vietnam, nearly started another war with the Bay of Pigs fiesco and banged every woman you could find..and that wasn't even near a full term


You forgot to put yourself in at No1 son. :lol:

The Duke of Wellington only won the Peninsular War single handed, Waterloo was a gamble that paid off, and if Britain had sent him to America in 1814 he would have kicked your arses as well matey. ;)

I don't think he lost a single battle or campaign, but i could be wrong.

And don't forget about Richard Sharpe, he would have shot your eye out before breakfast.:hunter:

Mt. St. Helens Volcano (Washington State)

I took my niece up there back in 2000. It still looks pretty bleak. I'm sure that in another 30 years it'll look a lot better just like Mt. Lassen. Up here I've hiked a couple times out to the Carbon Glacier on Mt. Rainier. But now with the bad storms the trail has just about been obliterated and you'd have to be pretty determined to get there now. But it's awesome to just sit there and watch the glacier quiver and quake and make weird popping sounds. :)

Top 5 Original Star Trek episodes: (1)City on the Edge of Forever (2)Mirror-Mirror (3)The Doomsday Machine (4)Where No Man Has Gone Before (5)The Enterprise Incident

:) We used to play this beer drinking game with Star Trek episodes back in college. Every "Captain!" was a sip; "Captain Kirk!" was 2 sips, and "Captain James T Kirk, Commander of the Starship Enterprise" was an entire beer. Those big Kenya purses in the 80s held a lot of beers for the Star Trek movies... :whistling:

Hi Virginia, i love it! You put Million Dollar Listing on your top five! I have seen a few of Tabitha and they are enjoyable. She's hilarious!

Oh yeah! :) My husband (Mr. Football!) is totally hooked on Tabitha too! She is a hoot. Wonder if she only does hair salons or if she straightens out other businesses as well?

I haven't seen any new (to me, at least) episodes of Million Dollar listing since around Thanksgiving, but hopefully will soon. That show is hilarious; I've never met anyone like those 3 before. I agree with you about Chad, he's the sharpest of the 3. The other 2 are really immature (especially when all 3 are together) and Chad is all about the business.
