    There was a bar I used to go to in Stroudsburg PA that had what they called "The Hall of Foam" They had 25 beers on tap, and drinking one of each in what I believe was 8 hours would get your name on a plaque. The first time I went there I was determined to do it, and would have if someone hadn't done it a few weeks prior, gotten into an accident and proudly proclaimed to the responding officer about getting in!

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    We have a lot of those "witty" beggar signs here, but I've come to find they all simply trade the signs around and "work" different locations with them. If anything, the attempts at humor bother me the most, especially when you see some of them with infants or malnourished dogs that almost serve as props. I will only help the elderly or people with obvious mental illness, not able-bodied libertines. If they just cut out the BS and made signs that read, "Need heroin, don't want diarrhea," and I may throw them a buck. Otherwise, there are plenty of resources here to get the people without serious mental illness off the streets. They just have to make the decision to stop their drug-induced, permanent vacation.

    Just the curiosity aspect of things, when something occurs that you don't expect. Back in the 80's some friends and I were shooting off fireworks on a hillside near a highway. Some silly fool thought we were shooting at him, exited the highway, got to where we were and started ranting. It all cleared up quickly, and he realized in his haste to get out of his car and start blabbering, he had locked his keys in his car. We even went home to get a coathanger so he could break into his car and be on his way.

    Of course you could always go the Caddyshack way and say, "On your deathbed you will recieve total conciousness."
