I've done some odd things in life, but this may be the oddest!  However, I am proud to say, "I AM A PC".

Unless you've been living in a cave you have seen the ads by Microsoft. Many different kinds of people stating how they are a PC, this ad campaign is certainly in retaliation to the Mac vs. PC ad campaign. 

A buddy of mine and I go out to lunch pretty much daily (as he is a co-worker, and fellow programmer).  He was talking about his Halloween costume, dressing up as the PC guy.  And the topic of custom plates came up due to one of the owners of the company we working for recently getting a custom plate of his own.  We determined that when we got back to the office we were going to see if personalized tags were available.  Sure enough we found a few variations of the tag line that we could register.  Since it was his idea I gave him the choice of the primary one "I AM A PC" or a secondary one "IM A PC 2".  He graciously let me have the primary one, and he registered the other.  So here we are with our custom plates!

Here this week we are going to take a photo of both of us side by side and send it into Microsoft's ad campaign.

That's great!  Way better than my little "I'm a PC" tag!

Keep saying that.  Come 2010 the government will have no choice but raise taxes on folks like me.  2 Trillion in government bailouts has to be paid by everybody, not just the 'rich'.

Dick Morris has an interesting article in TheHill that pretty much outlines our wonderful future under Obama...

That is cool, and slightly disturbing.

And no, I'm not talking about the political stickers.

@Pinder, kind of a long lost comment from you... but one that I remember.  So, you still convinced that only those making 250K will have their taxes raised?
