Yes...your honor. One rainy afternoon, I was fooling around with my partner's wife and I heard his car pulling in his driveway...so I ran from the back door without my clothes on. When he saw me, he asked, "Do you always jog in the nude?" I said, "Yes!" He said, "Do you always wear a condom when you're joggng?" I answered, "Only when it's raining!"

I think that I mixed up 800 with the 400. I would check the guy that did a 50 sec 800.

I was not aware of the second standard.

Hi ya Elf....read the red part....surely you CANNOT leave all of us hanging without your interesting story...I am sure that I am not the only one interested ....it is NOT too often that someone gets to save lives....way to go ELF...if you tell us your story, I will surely be able to read it when I come back from Vegas

anyway...regardless....have a great day...see ya and Aloha!!
Not a big deal wiefan. Acapulco did not have life guards or beach warning signs in public beaches in the 70s and 80s (still the same in many beaches). So when high surf and/or strong under currents happened, volunteers saved tourist that could not get back to the beach.
During the World Cup, I saw an interview with a life guard from Rio. He mentioned that when weather is harsh they rescue up to 100 people per day. Wow so many stupid tourist.

Back to Olympic Golf. My prediction for the final round: Suzann (NORWAY), Inbee (KOREA), Lydia (NEW ZEALAND), Ariya (THAILAND), Charley (ENGLAND), Shanshan (CHINA), Karrie (AUSTRALIA), and Mo (USA) battling for the gold medal.
