"Those pesky Dinosaurs! Always making things so difficult, especially if you'd rather believe in Mesolithic/Neolithic superstition... :-P
With regards to my Yinzerification... Too late, already been at Heinz Field waving a Terrible Towel in my…"
"Haha, it sounds like we're turning you from a Dane to a "Yinzer" already...it's infectious. You'll be waving a towel at a Steeler game in no time.

Welcome and cheers from Virginia. Love Pittsburgh. I'm going to a birthday party in Pittsburgh the first of June. There should be a travel section on A/N. It would be fun to meet other atheist for coffee or lunch.
