    "Dr. Molly Griswold: [after hitting a terrible shot on the driving range] Oh... f**k!
    Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy: Well, you talk like a golfer. Here, try again.
    Dr. Molly Griswold: [Molly hits another terrible shot] S**t!
    Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy: "F**k." "S**t." These are highly technical golf terms and you're using them on your first lesson. This is promising.

    Dr. Molly Griswold: [after hitting several more terrible shots on the driving range] This is without a doubt the stupidest, silliest, most idiotic grotesquery masquerading as a game that has ever been invented.
    Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy: Yes, ma'am, that's why I love it!"

    Kind of like being a Microsoft user...

    As an avid golfer I can relate, if I was interested in cars I'd probably go for the Morgans, Triumphs and Jensens of this world. There's just this part of me that craves a little punishment and let's not focus on where that might lead.

    Every single person on these forums is a masochist by definition.

    It's things like this, which make me really miss my NeXT Cube and NCR-3125 running PenPoint.

    The calligrapher needs five things: a fine temperament, an understanding of calligraphy, a good hand, the ability to endure pain and a perfect set of implements.

    While using your pen to write, scrolling up and down, left right with your fingers to move the page. I still cant figure out how Onenote works on iOS.

    Well, under Ballmer I might have signed off on that, but Gates or Nadella?
