    that woody doesn't like cheerleaders.

    that when Jr is undiapered (even for a millisecond), will take the opportunity to show us a fountain.

    that I'm unbelievably quick to react when in presence of said fountain.

    I learned that my contact at one of my clients is fed up and might be leaving soon, which is a bummer because we've both worked very hard getting the quality and aesthetics in line - broke a lot of rules, got yelled at and more, but we got the job done.

    I learned that, through the same client, a package that we did recently was a home run with Cabela's and Sports Authority - they will probably pick up the product based partially on the packaging alone.

    I learned that as idiot proof as I design a package, it will still get screwed up once it's printed in China.

    I learned that the rich-black CMYK mixture I have been using has too much magenta in it.

    And for Noah: I really wish I could buy your 60...damn that thing is almost exactly what I want out of mine...you want to store it here in TX? :D

    untrue...but my tolerance level for marginal material has taken more of a beating this week than anyone can really understand....

    I learned that if my work-aholic ass tries real hard, I can sleep past noon! Hey, this is my first day off in two weeks!

    I learned that the closer I get to my 21st birthday, the more anxious I get to be able to buy my own beer. Time was flying by at first, but not now that I'm counting down the days.

    I learned Noah beat me starting this thread (I was busy surfing porn, err, I mean cheerleader applications for USNAUD).

    I learned I kinda have a problem with daydreaming, if someone is saying something really boring I might just let my mind wander off, then recover while they are still talking and realize I have no idea what they just said 1.8 seconds ago...the hard part is coming up with a good way to ask about it later...

    I learned today is sposeto be the hottest day we've had so far, not sure if it is, but sposeto be I hear.

    I learned that although Walmart's used oil dump was full, and Checker Auto Part's was also, my brother would take oil off my hands due to a co-worker who has a oil-burner heater in his shop...so he's 10-gallons richer with black gold. :D

    I learned I can change the oil in a Pontiac GrandAm very quickly, and that leather gloves really cut down on oil-filter burns, why didn't I use these sooner :doh:

    I learned RedLine oil is expensive, $108 for 6 quarts of MT-90 (GL-4 gearlube specifically for manual trannies) and 5 quarts of 75w90 (normal GL-5 syn gearlube), but I also learned I'm a sucker for the Redline advertising stuff, and using the exact oil racers use is kinda cool to me, necessary? no, but cool :cool:

    I learned that Noah is just as apprehensive about telling his boss he's leaving as I am about telling my stepdad I'm looking for work elsewhere...

    i learned its really hot and i wish the a/c worked in my 60, so i might drive it this summer. also learned i am itching to have a 40 instead of a 60 so i could go topless {insert joke here} and the heat might be more bearable without the a/c.

    i also learned that it really sucks having a 15 year old daughter with self esteem issues.....

    I learned that 045 paint is not anywhere close to white in anybody else's paint selection.

    I learned that 3 hours of driving around to get all the crap needed to spray a pint of 045 paint is a lot more enjoyable on a motorcycle than in a diesel 60 without air, but still a PIA.

    I learned that some people will try to wreck a perfectly good cheerleader thread with hate-filled political comments, but nobody will really pay much attention to them.

    I learned that Noah is pretty fearless about posting boarderline pics and someday we might have to do without him for a few days.

    I learned there is only enough room for 4 people at the lake house, since others are there, but I invited 5 people so now I have to uninvited someone and I feel like such a d!ck about it.

    Also learned that most senior citizens dwell on the stoopidest sh!t that is so irrelavent to life -- ex: i stayed at my grandmothers last night and she bitched about me not wiping off the bathroom walls after my shower; or how i didnt fully shut the guest bedroom door < she's lost her mind, u should have heard her tone and anger re: this dumb sh!t

    I learned the tea LC has a busted "i" on his keyboard...

    I learned that my lovely wife leaving me a note telling me to stay out and get piled after volleyball AND leaving a $50 with that doesn't mean I should be out past 10pm...

    I finally learned the proper tweaks for the curse filter settings and the :flipoff2: guy is automatically included for family-safe browsing (at least out of Chat anyways.... :doh: )

    I am still learning the correct combo of colors to make the TLCA stuff not only match their scheme but also more eye-friendly
