...the first test most of us probably have to pass is not just skimming posts for information that we find useful. I saw those numbers skimming and thought "zip code" and lacked the curiosity to look further.

Reminds me of something adam carolla says in his bit on "language of losers". His employees will neglect to check something, and then say "they missed it because they didn't triple check", implying that they made an effort when they made none.

He will call them out and say "be honest - you didn't single check. If you single checked, you wouldn't have to use words like "triple check"" in the first place.

I forgot to triple check all of the details in bill's post. Besides, it's only a little over 42 feet....
