Hello kiddies! (and due to all the pensioners it seems we have here on Wire
 -- I use that term loosley).

First off I am 25 (and a Scorpio born in the year of the Rat -- so in a way I
 have bonded with 3 out of 4 members of U2). I am the youngest of 6. The
 oldest of the children in my family is 39 and acts like he is still 16. The
 next 3 still depend on my parents for jobs, and money, and can't seem to think
 for themselves (ages 30-37). The one just older than me died a few years ago
 -- she is the sole reason I cannot listen to One Tree Hill without crying, and
 missing her. My parents refer to me as the one with a brain to be proud of (go
 ahead ask me anything)! I have a bond to U2 -- their music, not because of my
 age, but because I can relate on certain levels with many of the feelings they
 sing about. My bond is different from your bond. No one can tell you that
 your experiences which bond you to U2 are wrong.

Second -- Anyone who says "in my day" or "back in the day" or "way back when"
 IS old -- but hey if you listen to U2, then I guess you are pretty cool. And
 to the younger fans who diss the older fans -- just remember, these are the
 people who can put you in their will. And seeing how they are on their "last
 leg" you may want to suck up so you may inherit their collections! LOL τΏ~

Third -- "who really wants to know what colour jocks Bono wears?"
I didn't think he wore any ... I'm thinking Adam doesn't either. Edge
 definitely wears boxers -- he's too fertile not to, and Larry probably wears
 plain old white briefs. And what the hell is a vita-brit anyway? Is that
 like veggamite? I hope Edge isn't one of those freak-o vegans!!

In the name of Sparky,
Shannon Carey-Thorpe

"And in our world a heart of darkness, a firezone
Where poets speak their heart, then bleed for it...
I don't believe in painted roses, or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of the merciful...
I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill
We run like a river to the sea..."
I miss you Erin!
