    YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2005, WHEN.........

    1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

    2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

    3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

    4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

    5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

    6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

    7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

    8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

    10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

    11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

    12. &n! bsp; You 're reading this and nodding and laughing.

    13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

    14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

    15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

    AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

    Go on, forward this to your friends you know you want to!

    Anybody wanna tell this old fart what the highlighted section in #12 means?

    There is 6,000 different brands of beer instad of 12.

    A 25" TV is a portable.

    You own as SUV or pick-up & never haul anything in it.

    Smoking in some bars is illegal.

    The Packers still suck.

    80% of the population doesn't know what a 45 or a LP is.

    An 8-ball has nothing to do with the game of pool.

    Not all girls are really girls & not all men are really men.

    According to my friend, it is a complicated programming thing. I have never actually heard of it. It has something to do with writing a space that looks like a space but isnt a space.


    Don't ask me.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    It's the "Dooms-Day" tag. It is used in a lot of virus programs to string a sentence into one long string & prevent "text wrapping" of sentences.

    It's intended use was of creating a space between words or elements that should not be broken in controling the the format of a HTML document.

    Never mind the aboveÂÂ*definition is for ÂÂ*&n bsp;

    &n! bsp; is actually the\code inside the pre tags below:

    Code:
     
    which in HTML simply means a space. You can't just hit your spacebar when writing HTML a bunch of times to space things, you have to input the appropriate code.

    Somehow some email reader messed that up and you saw it show...
