    What is the deal? I keep seeing yellow lines under certain words and phrases, such as:
    find a woman
    pos
    and a few others, and I'm just very curious.

    It is under the words pos and find a woman in my post, and probably in this post too, unless its some sort of stupid virus thingy I picked up :/. For a while when I went to bestbuy.com I got a porn DVD site, it was funny the first 2 times, but MAN it was aggrivating. Up, its under DVD too.

    You've picked up some adware program that hyperlinks your text to certain websites selling stuff. Download Ad-aware and/or Spybot S&D and run the scans, then remove the adware they find.

    Also you might have some odd program in your directory which does this. I once had the same thing happening to me.

    I alredy had adaware so I ran it about 4 times, and the lines are gone now, this is why I love talkbass :).

    Maybe I should become a member *scratches chin*.

    I'd recommend growing some facial hair. It makes scratching your chin cooler.

    I would suggest: *twirls moustache*

    It's much more refined and elegant. :cool::D

    I made my friend Jared grow a moustache for that very reason. It cracked me up. I actually grew my goatee (the no moustache kind) just so I could stroke it while I though as a joke, but I ended up really liking it, and now whenever I'm deep in thought (ha) I stroke my beard without thinking, and when I catch myself I laugh.

    Well, I'm 17, 18 in May, and I can't grow a beard or a moustache, but my brother can grow this very odd looking blondish/clear beard...I'm almost jealous, I want the full on Grizzly Adams beard.
