Let's just hope all the CTLees (Concealed Tomato Licensee) are using OWB holsters and not IWB, which could be very messy.

No...just a lowly IT geek. And I didn't even stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night. I did entertain the thought of going to law school though...

I went to pick up some cherry tomatoes from the local market but they were out of them. The grocer says he gets several batches in a day but they are sold out by mid-morning. Evidently somebody from the local Kroger comes by and buys them all. :grumble

Hehe...that reminds me of when I was in the local Walgreens a couple of weeks ago. There was an elderly gentleman in there wanting to return one of those. He was quite upset that the product did not include a fully grown tomato plant in the box. He was making sure to let everyone within earshot know that these were a "big rip off". :lol:

OK, so back to the original topic... Does anyone know why the space bar is so much bigger than all of the other keys on the keyboard?

Some people say tomatoes and alcohol don't mix. It's the same old "bloody mary in the streets" argument we hear time after time.

I haven’t the slightest idea, but I think it’s great that they put in this pop out coffee cup holder. "rlol"

Of course, it's because .... Oh look, a squirrel.... where were we again?

I would assume because the space bar is used the most out of any other key, see I just used it 22 times, wait 25,times.

I know the thread is a test, so I will answer this one. If you are a touch-typist the space bar is hit with your thumbs. With proper placement, the thumbs on both hands reside over the space bar. It is longer to accommodate the thumb positions as well as to be accessible for all hand sizes. At least that is what I was taught in my personal typing class in high school. However, if you watch me type, I have forgotten the majority of what I learned. LOL
