See, someone picked "Hobby (explain below)" but did not explain below.

If you people can't abide by the rules, I'm just gonna have Paul do these from now on.

Sorry bro. Got sucked into work. That was me. Fixing arcade machines and playing them, computers, surfing, skateboarding, guitar, and even fishing. I put quite a bit of money into the first 2.. and really only viewed work as a way to pay for my hobbies and bills.

It would be interesting to see the same poll and see which is the least important to everyone.

ICJ also left out friends/social life as well as lots of other things like power/control, fame, respect, etc. So I guess if we use his list, which is far from complete, I would rank them:

1) My family's/pets well being
2) My health
3) Food/water
4) Sleep
5) Friends
6) Sex
7) Hobbies (games, books, movies, music, etc)
14) Respect
24) My job
82) Money
732) Fame
937) Power/control

And of course there should be a negative end to the scale in which you have things you actively do not want.

No disrespect here lady, but I am finding it hard to believe that money and respect are so far down on your list if you are female lol. If that is indeed the case then wow; you got a boyfriend?

Being able to use a computer. This place is okay, but YouTube videos - especially the reading of Reddit Stories - are very entertaining, Also doing programming, or solving problems.

The tough thing about ordering this list is that so many of the items relate to other items. Like, my job is important because it makes me money, and money is important because it allows me to provide well being (including food/water) to my family.

What? I don't know of any letter called 'what.' Is 'what' a consonant or a vowel? You also didn't use a question mark, therefore it was a statement, not a question.

Again, you expose your ignorance. "CFR" refers to the "Code of Federal Regulations," which are issued by the Federal Government and have nothing to do with the states. Beyond that, regulations are never part of a penal code, as a penal code is a set of statutes enacted by a legislature, while regulations are rules created by the executive branch on how to enforce the statutes. So CFR2902 in that context makes no sense. Besides, sections of the penal code would just be a number, e.g. Section 182 of the California Penal Code defines murder.

Also, as this link shows, it's called the "criminal law" in Maryland, not the "penal code." And its criminal law only has 14 chapters, thus the highest numbered criminal statute is 14-01, not 2902 or 29-02.

Now, if you're referring to Maryland regulations, they do have the "Code of Maryland Regulations" or COMAR. But that's a different matter.

But I'm in Virginia now, I'm not sure why you're bringing up Maryland. In Virginia, the Criminal Code is Title 18.2 of The Code of Virginia 1950. Starting with Chapter 1, §18.2-1, through Chapter 13, § 18.2-517.

I suppose eventually I'll get used to his passive aggressive responses. I said that years ago too.

It makes all the other stuff that much more amusing to me.

There is a 0% chance he will get that reference and a 93% chance he will cut and paste something from Wikipedia about brain sizes.

There is also a 0% chance he will take a step to the left, but a fairly good chance he might roll out of bed to the right.
