Definition of Success: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived .. this is to have succeeded. ...Ralph Waldo Emerson

An Interview with redhed

Last updated: 12/16/2001
The Fool:
What's your favorite Fool message board?
redhed:
Baby Boomers
The Fool:
Describe the worst Internet experience you've ever had.
redhed:
I emailed a joke to a list of about 10 friends, one of whom was on vacation. She apparently had set up her email to "auto-reply" that she was out of town .. unfortunately, she set it up to "reply to all". What's worse, it ran amok and continued to send the message to everyone on the list over, and over, and over, and over ... until one of the recipients had the good sense to call her place of employment and have them turn the crazed email off, but not before we had received nearly 500 messages each!
The Fool:
How'd you find out about the Fool? (Make your answer as colorful and truthful as possible.)
redhed:
On the radio .. the Fools themselves were filling in for the ever-vacationing Clark Howard in Atlanta.
