    I see you live in OH. I lived in Columbus for a few months back in the 80's. Worked at a dept. store called Lazarus, I think that's how it's spelled. Pretty country...flat but nice. It was in the spring/summer time, no snow.

    I don't find anything annoying. At some point we all new nothing about the ocean creatures. I've been reefing for nearly 3 years. It still amazes me how little I know. We know more about Mars then we do about our own oceans.

    The most annoying thing is when they ignore it.

    someone being ignorant is normal and ok. we were all ignorant at some point. but that doesn't mean it cant be annoying.

    When people walk in the basement and say "oh, it's pretty serious huh?"

    Yes it's serious. You think I was putting al that water in my house for laughs?

    Then the shark comments.

    I had a friend pull the magnet side of a tunze power off the glass out of curiosity. I educated him by letting him know that he was a butt-head and not to do that again lol :) Just a small sandstorm, no big deal.

    the most odd over the years was-
    "So, they tattoo these all the colors... the "Orientals"..."
    -I held it together until she said "Orientals"...

    Look at all the pretty colors and fish.

    My son wants a dog but dont think he is ready for the responsibility (9 yrs old). I was looking at getting a fish tank for my son. (Thinking to myself: Really??!!, what makes you think this is easier than a dog?)

    If you dont mind how much does a set up like this cost? (Wait for it, Wait for it)

    How much???!!!!

    No way, its beautiful but what a waste of money, bet the wife isnt too happy with it!!??

    My response "get your son a dog"
