the Bandwidth Police will appreciate all efforts to create (using jpg compression) images well under 100KB file size. There is still such a thing as dialup internet access. Making them smaller in actual pixel size (say 750 wide as a maximum) will also allow reading the posts without having to side-scrollhttp://img56.imageshack.us/img56/8128/respectmyauthority27ui.gif

Exactly why I don't wear steel toed boots. I ran over my boot pushing a car one time and they had to cut my foot out of it.

If the prospect of the steel being crushed scares you, the go with a composite toe. If anything ran over your toe with enough force to colapse the steel toe, your foot would have been TOAST without it. Every case I have ever seen where toes were pinched or cut by a steel toe, the foot would have been gone without them. I would be missing pieces if I hadn't had steel on a number of times.

Not really...just have to be smarter than the average water puddle and wear the right type of boots. :)

Yup... rain or shine my feet are dry. Course... that comes from quality leather boots with waterproof linings. $250 a pair but they last 2-1/2 years.

And if you're into foot fetishes they don't smell too bad either.
