YET FOLKS STILL DOUBT THERE'S A GOD?:

Virtual colonoscopy accurate and 'less invasive' (Jennifer Harper, 10/19/06, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Here's welcome news for anyone alarmed by a standard "optical" colonoscopy, the oft-dreaded and unpopular exam for colon cancer that yields an accurate diagnosis, right along with patient discomfort and embarrassment.

Three-dimensional computed tomography colonography -- or virtual colonoscopy -- is getting high marks from the Radiological Society of North America, which is lauding both the procedure's accuracy and appeal. Simply put, there is no 52-inch "scope" involved, and no sedation.

The most dreaded words in a man's life: close your eyes and think of Denzel.

Chow Yun Fat on line one. He's wondering what he's done to be passed over in oj's affections. And he's very angry.

Actually, Jason Statham is top of the list these days, but only Denzel has a recognizable single moniker.

Guys, this thread is--oh, how to say this diplomatically?--creeping me the hell out. Three little words: Too. Much. Information.

Mike:

Why? Who's atop your list?

I don't have any such list, OJ.

Of course you do.
