I wholeheartedly agree and have practiced this rigorously, to some recently mixed results. I selected the secret question, "What was the name of your first dog?"

Fast forward to my forgotten password. You see, I've never owned a dog. I tried "none," "null," to no avail. Tech support time. "You see..."

Woman: You don't remember? Oh, I see what you did...
Me: No idea!
Woman: It's three letters... I can't say it.
Me: Uhmmm...OH! [feverish typing] Got it reset!

Secret answer: WTF

The best was I was at work as it was a corporate vendor's website.

What about blind people who cannot speak? Personally, I don't think universities should be allowed to encourage devices except to the lowest common denominator: Helen Keller.

The solution becomes clear, then, and it's the Braille machine used by Whistler in the movie Sneakers. This, of course, is a completely different device as opposed to a variant of a viable e-book reader the rest of us use but with additional features. Therefore, this device is the only that should be allowed, and we bitches with all of our senses functioning should have some compassion and learn Braille already.

Georgia-Pacific has it spot on if the spirit of awareness month is to irritate individuals into action. The breast cancer-aware Quilted Northern toilet paper packages contain rolls of diminished width and I've been inspired into submitting feedback of disdain via the Contact Us form on the Georgia-Pacific website.

J-1 is the fault of the home countries requiring the US to put these restrictions on foreign students in exchange for allowing American students to go to those countries at all. They don't want their best students going to the US and staying there, so they make a visa treaty (or whatever term that agreement would have, if not "treaty") that requires them to come back for some set period where they can't apply for another visa in the US, to give them time to "share their knowledge and experience with their countrymen", as it was worded in DHS documents.

We need a new system that gives more student visas to every country, eliminating all the current types of visas, and implementing a new one that applies everywhere that makes it MUCH easier for changes in visa type, residency status, and green card applications.
