Thanks Joe, And believe me I in no way meant to appear disrespectful in any of my above posts. Strange things never seem to happen when you're prepared for them. Thanks for you reply Cheers! Roadeye
You see, I too believe that scepticism is a good thing...for the most part anyway.
But a few years ago, something happened to me that put the whole doubt first ask more in depth questions later mentality into a different kind of perspective for me.
You see, one Saturday afternoon I was stuck in Toronto, Canada on business and was not allowed to return home for the weekend.
So, after spending most of the morning and afternoon in my hotel room, I went across the street to a local deli to pick up a sandwich for supper.
While standing in line a new customer walked into the place and took his place in line directly behind me and struck up a conversation with me about how great a deli this was and that every time he was in Toronto he made a point of dropping in for a sandwich.
Well...that new customer was Kieth Richards of the Rolling Stones.
And there we were standing in a deli together on a Saturday afternoon in Toronto.
Joe...the first thing to come into my mind after saying our see ya laters and picking up our sandwiches came to me as I was crossing the street on the way back to my hotel.
"Shit" I said to myself.
"I may as well have just seen a UFO land here in the street, as try to make people believe that this just happened."
It was a very funny deal...but a humbling one at the same time.
So after that, I usually give anybody telling strange tales a little bit of leeway (just in case) before I start on the path of disproving what it is they maybe talking about.
And you're right....I meant no harm or no foul.
I was just making an observation.
And believe me I in no way meant to appear disrespectful in any of my above posts.

Thanks for you reply
