Wait a second, this is the same Dan from adrift at sea who posts annoying comments on my blog. Why the hell is he funny on your blog (see #10) and annoying on mine? some sort of split personality?

But since he does annoy me, I'll take exception to number 7, or at least the County of Alameda takes exception to it.
