  WannaBe: I heard that tax returns are due tonight, think the local post office are open until midnight.

I'll start filling mine out at 11:30, 0 + 0 - 0 / 1 = 0

Shouldn't take me more than 5 minutes to fill out the 1040EZ

They're called "four-eyes" but it's still two eyes, and a pair of glasses.

  diceman: <WannaBe: I found this (or came across it) on another site, just wish to share it here:

1. I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.>

George Carlin said: "Kid who swallows
a jar of marbles, doesn't have any more kids."

<2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People move out of the way much faster now.>

I hear in concealed carry states, no one
uses a horn. Car stops in front of you,
you quietly go around it.

<4. Gone are the days when girls cooked like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.>

...and use his public restroom.

<7. I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes 1,500 days in a row.>

Along with not making it to a GM today.

<9. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers. If you find one, what's your plan?>

Which way?
One way is Tony Perkins.
...the other, is Janet Leigh.

<10. Everyone has a right to be stupid. Politicians just abuse the privilege.>

Sounds like voters may be in contention?

  john barleycorn: < diceman:...

Unless he's off on a journey.>

You are clearly underestimating <Abdel>, the all-around genius. He is multitasking. Eating couscous in North Africa, give a rating for the Guide Michelin, convincing the camel drivers of his superior interpretation of the Qu'ran, leaving the Wahhabi's speechless and winning a chess game blindfolded. All simultaneously and at the same time. All transmitted by CNN and commented by Brian C. More live.

North Africa will speak in awe of the 21st century *stroll*.

Journey or no journey, I think we can all agree that he is definitely off.

yes, probably from birth on. C'est la vie

Stay tuned.

  zanzibar: I believe I once did some biographical work on this person, leaving the info in the forum. Might be mistaken.

Either way, we should construct a bio for the player.

* * * * *

The forum posts != bio, period. The bio represents the vetted fact, unlike any given forum post.

The bio should be restored, and treated at the same level as all other players.

The original bio was perhaps inadequate:

<ODD LIE -- This page is about Odd Lies.> (2012)

Instead of improving it, at some point in the past it was vandalized by <Tab> (almost assuredly):

Odd Lie (kibitz #17869)

As a result <CG> simply removed the bio. Of course the player deserves a bio (remember bio != forum), even if the bulk of comments are not about the player.

* * * * *

Not sure if this is the same Odd Lie, but it well could be...


Odd Lie (born 14 December 1926 ) is a Norwegian former gymnast .

He represented Norway during 1952 Summer Olympics, where his best result was a 14th place.

> (no)

I suspect this person is deceased, simply based on his age. Could easily be wrong.

However not a regular member, my title is Member Honoris Causa, Which means I'm smarter than all you dummies that post here. Hahaha! Long Live Honoris Causa! (whatever that is).
