1) How is it possible that people STILL don't know the difference between "Reply" and "Reply All"? It was bad enough that some idiot sent an e-mail to the entire company regarding their unused ballet tickets, but you sure as hell don't need to inform everyone that you would like to attend.
2) What, exactly, is a moral victory? I'm pretty sure you can't be victorious if you lose. Is there such a thing as an immoral victory?
3) The use of sports analogies in the working environment has gone too far. I'm sorry, but we are not LIKE a football team, and you are definitely NOT the quarterback. In fact, you aren't even the fucking water boy.

Should I place them according to the genre of their Nebraskan counterparts? Do I leave one "open" that can be changed based on my mood? What if I can't find a good oldies station? Alternative, Rock, Classic, Oldies, Talk, Nostalgic, the possibilities are endless. It's a damn good thing I don't like Country, because then I'd really be fucked.
8) I have realized that sarcasm doesn't come off near as well in writing as it does in conversation. The problem is you can't tell a person's tone in their writing. My solution: sarcasm marks.
