I'm not worried about my interest in the series. As most, if not all,
of you know, I'm an avid cartoonaholic, and I watch a *variety* of stuff
-- from SK to TMNT to Disney Afternoon stuff and so on.

Paul I think once called me the biggest SK fan on the net -- and I was
quick to point out that *that* wasn't the case, citing Andy and Walt
(sorry, guys! ;-) as people who were bigger fans than me. While I find
myself tending to emulate Razor quite a bit (even saying Razor's catch
phrase "Bingo!" more often) I'm not about to give up my education for
working in a salvage yard and flying a jet.

Has SK *changed* my life? No. Has it *influenced* my life? Yes.
