    i'll save this one. and to think i fell, for half a second, for the misspelling of faint. good thing i've seen boxing portrayed in movies. good one, mark. i like getting my veins punctured. unfortunately my wife restricts the number of times i do it to 3-4 a year. my daughter became a doctor even thought she grew up being squeamish at the sight of blood. she started donating blood while in undergrad school to get used to the idea. she also didn't learn to swallow pills until college days. ...............blood-lust cow / very nice! !
