Hmm, I think I may be a bit timid and I have cancer. There it is.

I'd comment, but I think I'll wait and see what everyone else thinks first.

I just might as well hang it up. This seems to be another nail in my coffin. If I believed all the stuff like this that has been printed in the passed few years I'd just naturally reach down and check for a pulse. Surely the deck is stacked against me.

I wonder how many of the "eager to explore" rats actually said "Hey yall, watch this!" before they did what they did?

Well, I'm kind of shy, and I also smoke.

Wonder if I'll wake up tomorrow?

I wonder how many people on this forum who have big opinions and mouths are really shy in person?

Interesting. So because I've been a downhill skier, white-water rafter, shooter, and skydiver and am therefore not very timid, I can expect to live a loooong time? that may or may not be a good thing.

Timid people die earlier because aggressive people push them around.

Sorry, the meek shall NOT inherit the earth, just die sooner.

They studied rats. Maybe some scientists consider rats to be people.

I've told people this theory for years. Notice Bob Hope, George Burns, etc...Those people who express their emotions and don't hold them in live longer. We aren't designed to bottle stuff up inside...it has to go somewhere and it ends up being in the form of cancers.

DemocRATS are not people, they are test subjects for lab rats.....

We need more DemocRATS in the labs because there are just some things that Lab Rats will NOT DO

Depends on good clean powder, avoiding rocks, no-misfires, and full opened silk. Minus one you may end up a statistic.... or a stain on the ground.... :o)

Went into a Media Play today, there was a VERY timid girl at the counter. She would not even look at the customers, and you had to strain to hear a word she said. She appears to be a pushee..... too bad she is kinda cute :o)

Good question, its easy to sound off behind the faceless monitor of a PC
