My 18th birthday, I was waiting for wine (Boones Farm), women (Girlfriends) & song (Grand Funk Railroad - Survival)!

I wasn't able to afford a computer then. Only system I see released now is iOS, it was released this Feb. 13th!

In Georgia (USA) they DO require ID to vote and so far court cases challenging the requirement have been decided in the state's favor. The counter argument seems to imply poor people are too poor to get valid IDs so are disenfranchised by the requirement. Personally I don't buy that reasoning.

Personally, I wouldn't care. Man, this is a piece of software. I have a life, on my birthday I want to party with my family and friends, not sitting there waiting for the appearance of an ISO on a server, so that I can install an OS.

You don't have a girlfriend Kenny? How about praying for a girlfriend this birthday? Perhaps that might be a stepping stone for change which you need desperately!

Each to his/her own. Some people enjoy that lifestyle while others look to improve their abilities. Please get back on topic.

I believe the novelty of a release on one's birthday is just that a novelty. Curiosity, coincidence or chance and nothing more.

You are causing some of the drift in this thread by your continued extension of topic comments. So to you, get back on topic so others will stay on topic.

I already did, for a short while, this school year. The reason why we broke up was because her parents wanted us to, nothing more.

However, I also have many friends at school (and also found out that someone who had a crush on me back when I was in 8th grade is there now, not to mention that we have a lot in common), so this discussion is moot.

But again, this is off-topic.

I am NOT questioning your authority but that post of mine though offtopic was constructive, Kenny needs a break from the computers, he needs to get a life and that's all I wanted to say there.

and Onebuck, I apologize in advance for the following LAST offtopic statement:
