    Holy smokes, this has been in a four-way deadlock for far too long.

    Great! Now it's a five-way deadlock!
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    I'll try again tomorrow since I'm kind of brain dead, but they all kind of blended into the same idea.

    Great stories. Good luck contributors.

    Oooh yes, all very interesting...
    Now I feel as though I should have written something...
    For I have known them all already, known them all:
    Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
    I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
    I know the voices dying with a dying fall
    Beneath the music from a farther room.

    So how should I presume?
