Somebody asked me to email them this post. I lost your email. Somehow while searching for the posting for you, I deleted your email and can't find it. 

Go to the bottom of this page on the blog.  Click on "older posts" until you get to the page with that posting.

Sorry I couldn't just email it to you. Somebody emailed it to me and I thought it was pretty funny....and unrealistic :)
