I've got better odds of winning the lottery than ever getting near that court.... and not just because I'm scared of heights.

Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:
You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing... I can get to Kuwait for pretty much free if I don't mind waiting for a Space A flight.

Do they really even have a gaurd rail? And ya, the wind thing is my question, too. I bet they charge out the wazoo for balls there.

7-Star hotel, didn't know that kind of thing existed. "I always thought that babies came from the stork, and...I learned something new today." -Peter Griffin

I wonder if you have to pay to work there. Man, that's nice.
