    I'm pretty sure it was! (The overwhelming majority of us have this info already in our profile. I guess we've reached an age when a single click is considered an inconvenience! )
    A Buddhist monk walked up to the guy working behind a hot dog cart and said, "Make me one with everything."

    Most people don't actually. I tend to check new members as part of being on spam patrol and very few people fill out their profile. Also I have gotten to the point where I don't answer questions unless people put their injury level somewhere. After putting time and thought into answering questions only to be told "oh I don't have SCI, I have (insert something that makes that person feel the need to use a wheelchair but can walk and has full sensation) its not worth the time unless you know your advice is applicable.

    Ahhhh. Most folks I interact with seem to have it listed, but I guess that's a pretty limited sample. I hear ya re: non-SCI posters. It is nice to know ahead of time.
