what has been mankind's greatest invention?

The aeroplane?
Space travel?
The computer?
The internet?
The i-phone?
Major League Baseball?
The A-bomb?

No, no, no, and no.

The greatest invention is the vigorous hot shower.

...something I have not been able to experience lately, due to the petty whims of a lazy and probably micro-penised building superintendent. I am thinking of moving to New Jersey. Seriously.

Or maybe I should go back to Arizona, from whence I came.

keeping score

Canyon del Oro High School Doroados state champs. I was their scorekeeper, and Karen Linn and Julie ? were the bat girls. I remember the names of almost all the players, many of whom I had known since the second grade. Steve Burk, Hank Winter, Chuck and Tim Grady, Dale Heinz, Greg Cohen, Jeff LeCompte, the coach (moustache) Roger Werbylo. The pristine Pusch ridge behind us, now covered with mcmansions, townhouses and senior living communities. i still love baseball.
