Like some men, I'm tempted to turn my back on city life and become a woodsman and find a shack miles from the nearest road and keep a small garden, collect wood, live in harmony with nature. No pin numbers, no E mail, no security check points, no crazed businessmen walking through airport terminals talking loudly to themselves. Just me and the trees and the snow and a shelf of books…Like some men, I'm tempted to turn my back on city life and become a woodsman and find a shack miles from the nearest road and keep a small garden, collect wood, live in harmony with nature.

Just me and the trees and the snow and a shelf of books…the ? is ...where?

This was the Unabomber's choice for such a 'getaway'.

jdpworld, I think that is a fantastic idea. I think you should leave soon. Tomorrow, even. I take great comfort in the fact that your shack, miles from the nearest road, will most likely not have Internet access. Your departure will bring joy not only to you, but to the rest of us as well. What could be better?

30 facts about Chuck Norris on several blogs with a few variations.

Chuck Norris beat Ken Jennings on Jeopardy. However, the show wasn't aired after he said "booyah" and broke all of the cameras.

I think it should be "Personal PIN Number"... just to be sure.

Actually, it comes from here. They have the same thing for Vin Diesel (which I've written an RSS aggregator that I feed into my screen saver. [Big Grin] and one for Mr T.

Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
