Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Great buck!

I've tried your technique, but it hasn't worked for me yet.
Don't fret Dano.  It took me thousands of repetitions before I finally got it right.  Remember: practice doesn't make perfect... perfect practice makes perfect.   :P

Fantastic story. Great buck.
