7. download counts which pleasingly rise but unpleasingly do not rise quickly enough
8. batting averages referring to things other than baseball
9. sports journalists
10. the lack of Adobe Photoshop, and the inability to figure out which 10 dollar value software does the same thing
11. list prices on software
12. work
13. raisin bran
14. virtual instruments
15. for want of a good book, a chance to read was lost
16. little nearly calorie-free bites of a sweet but low-fat thing
17. freechess.org, and the way the interface makes a clacking sound when you take a pawn

19. Mr. Ford's welcome statement about going hybrid with the cars

If only I were a folk singer. I would have more to say.

neurotic tics prove the intelligent design of the eye

"A DSM cautionary statement is required to create balance and perspective for the various diagnoses and criteria used in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) published by the American Psychiatric Association. The DSM provides diagnostic categories and criteria for their diagnoses. The proper use of these requires clinical training, knowledge and skills to apply them. Their use by people without this background is likely to lead to an inappropriate application of diagnoses".--from wikipedia.org
