    There IS a handshake and we don't get to know, do we?

    Dang it.

    No ring. No handshake. No free coffee.

    I was going to go to San Fransisco this weekend. But everyone will be doing their cool handshake and know I'm just one of the straight nerdz.

    This sucks.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      there are two very distinct uses of the word "must": 1. as a statement about an implied reality (e.g. "It's dark outside so it must be nighttime.") or 2. as a demand ("You must do the dishes or no dessert!")

      Which one am I using above?  The implied reality that we already have a handshake, or the demand that we do?

      (I could tell you, but it's another secret.)
