Because you hit the left shift key with the left pinky and then the right shift key with the right pinky and after that your pinkies are exhausted and the left shift key isn't hit again.

How is that for sound reasoning??

whats wierd is that I typed it in my original post as C & a m p ; Cs it changed all on its own to C&cs. Maybe this new quit smoking drug chantix that I'm taking to quit is making me go crazy or something. Or maybe its the fact I bought my boat in April and have only visited it twice. Wait wait I know Crazy I was crazy once worms....worms made me crazy.. Does anyone know what that might be from?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

certain keyboard characters are often mis-encoded depending on what browser and language set you have selected, and that results in the characters being shown as "& amp ;" instead of just "&".
