haha, sometime having a different name is cool. That is until you want a mug or keychain with your name on it. I know in Texas when my son was in daycare there were so many Haden, Jaden, Kaden, and other variations of the **ken name. It was sorta funny.

Then I was at the park here and some lady had named her kid unique... but she probably spelled it in ebonics

Hopefully you use the middle name on job applications, etc. They've done studies that show that resumes/applications with ethnic names are less likely to lead to interviews. There must be a story about your name that's worth telling though.

honestly would you take a second look at a resume if it had Mercedes or Bangcock Betty as a name?

But he would make a terrible MRI tech! He would only have a problem once though!

Anyone know anywhere that sells a single 10mm spark cable?
You put all that stuff on a 4cyl? Was it worth it (any performance gains?)?

All you have to do is help him rob the bank! But once you're in prison you won't be able to drive the Jeep anyways. haha
