    THe program is trained to ignore dislexic people and it always askes you if you meant to put in the palindrome backwards. 8)

    I’ve stopped going to the ATM alltogether because having cash in my pocket makes me think I’m rich and I always spend it way too fast 😯

    Well, I never said that the (patented) idea is without merit.

    The PIN I used for years was one of those ones it fails on, however.

    The one I use now is the last 4 of an ex-girlfriend’s phone number, but already reversed. Does that mean the cops are after me already?

    CBX mooned a nun? What has the world come to? It’s guys like him that cause them to live a life of celibacy in the first place.
