    I've decided to register after a few visits to this wonderful site. I recently have returned to school (took me 10 years to figure out what I wanted to do:redface:) for undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering and/or Applied Mathematics.

    The members of this forum seem to be extremely helpful, and I hope to contribute as I learn. I am very excited to have found such a wonderful community with whom I can share my passion(s)!!:biggrin:

    What an interesting question!

    For my money, I don't know that it gets any better than a good seared ahi (sesame crust) on top of some mixed greens - white rice one the side. :smile:

    Ooh that does sound good. Doesn't get you out of the PF fish whacking initiation though. :biggrin:

    Hmm I believe the question was never answered. So let's say the favorite fish is probably the Tylochromis lateralis

    Evo, have you every played Ultimate Fishbee? I think you might like it.

    :rofl: I should not have picked such a massive fish!

    Much less painful than the Ahi tuna, I'd imagine. Excellent name as well! :approve:

    I believe this procedure is exclusive to the PF Sisterhood, if my research is correct. I wasn't sure what was going on until I viewed AverageJoe's thread and found some subtle clues.

    I am the ring leader.

    New sisters added since your well researched thread are Lisab, GeorginaS, Drizzle, mcknia, ~christina~ & physicsgirlPHD, that I can remember off hand, although the shoe sizes of some have not yet been verified (exceptions have been made), the original sisters all wore a size 8 shoe except Tsu.

    Interesting!

    Is shoe size the primary qualifying characteristic for admission? What is the Sisterhood's purpose?

    Maybe I am stepping into classified information. I am half-expecting to receive the "I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you" line. :rofl:

    At any rate, thanks for the warm welcome! :smile:
