What's up with the name?
Yes, I watched Animaniac's as a teenager and ever since then I have been using yakkowarner as a user name (about 15 years). One of my closest friends used wakko as a user name on video games so it made perfect sense that I use yakko, especially considering how long winded I can be. :)
What if I have a question?
This is one of the more enjoyable aspect to epinions. If you have a question about a product, epinions, or anything else that you think I can help you with then please e-mail me and I'll try to answer it as best as I can. Just be warned, I may use your question in a future review/guide.
I try to go back and update certain reviews so they are up to date. For certain products it is very important to keep them up to date. If you see a review you want updated then please e-mail me and I will be happy to do that for you. This offer is for both members and non-members.
I dont like the rating you gave me.
I rate reviews according to how useful they are to me. If you do not agree and think I am being unduly harsh, then please e-mail me and I will be happy to reread it and give you feedback. If I was too harsh I will change the rating, I have no ego to bruise nor am I easily offended; so dont worry about contacting me.
What do you like most doing on epinions
First it is informing people of products I love. The second thing is helping others write better and get used to some of the political aspects of epinions. Please ask away even if I gave you a low rating, I enjoy helping others.

You can shower a child with presents or money, but what do they really mean, compared to the move valuable gift of all-your time? Vacations and special events are nice, but so ofte the best moments are the spontaneous ones. Being there. Every moment you spend with your child could be the one that really matters. Tim Russert
Perfection, for everyone of us it means something different, and that is it's beauty. The idea of what is perfection has been debated by world's most beautiful minds since Aristotle has first attempted to define it. Perfect is which is complete which is so good that nothing of the kind could be better, and perfect is which has attained its purpose. However humans progress. Today most perfect violinist some day will be eclipsed by another... another who will achieve musical bliss our minds simple cannot yet grasp. (Russel Crowe, Superbowl monologue, 2008)
You can't lead the people, if you don't love the people. You can't save the people, if you don't serve the people. Cornel West

"Without Fear, There is No Courage
Indeed, the prerequisite of courage is fear. If you have to do something where fear is not present, you don't need bravery. You only need efficiency. It's only when trepidation turns to dread that courage is possible, for its definition means action, not in the absence of, but despite, fear."

It was just words.
But good words. That's where ideas begin. Maybe you should listen to them.
Spare me your notions of poetry,please. We all have our assigned duties and...

And who am I hiding from?
From yourself, Admiral.
If we all reacted the same way, wed be predictable, and theres always more than one way to view a situation. Whats true for the group is also true for the individual. Its simple: overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. Its slow death.- Kusanagi Motoko (Ghost in the Shell)
Major Motoko Kusanagi: You talk about redefining my identity. I want a guarantee that I can still be myself.
Puppet Master: There isnt one. Why would you wish to? All things change in a dynamic environment. Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you
(Ghost in the Shell)
If a technological feat is possible, man will do it. Almost as if its wired into the core of our being.

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."
And as a public service I wish to warn you about the dangers of epi-dolls, dogs, and matches.
And what happens when you keep them displayed out of reach of your dog.
