    Line from Stripes ,but it sums up how I feel lately.
    Agressive driving getting worse every day,Adult never wasses or sports wannabee coaches getting into fights over kiddy organized sports.
    College schoilarship and pro players acting like idiots instead of being thankfull for their god given ability and good fortune.
    Crazy fans like that dimwit in Atlanta who was yelling at A-Rod so he fell over the railing to his death.
    There's still plenty of good people ,but to the rest of the fools "Lighten up Francis"

    Agree with the sentiment, but don't get the Francis reference?

    Thanks for the film clip,I dont get the big toe thing but anyway theres a popular rock band that plays a lot of the lounges and beach bars in AC called Dont Call Me Francis.Guessing they got the name from Stripes also.

    I have a freakish memory for useless information. And a disappointing memory for everything else.

    I like the line in that movie " I rarely wear underwear, but if I do, it's something pretty unusual". I've used that one in the past.
