When I was going to college here in Vancouver, I was the designated table clearer in the cafeteria. It was always full, so I would give my friend my order, wheel up to the end of a tableful of Chinese students, and by the time my food arrived with the rest of the gang, the table was empty. It worked every time. Maybe they thought I was lame…

i think its a shame that once again the Chinese are ahead of the game, just like stem cells....i'm with Ala, they must have read cc and the other boards...and ironically, if they weren't right, the disabled community "wouldn't" be outraged, they'd just blow it off
Im disappointed,i thought there would be gasoline and roman candles involved!
