    As a general rule I try to avoid the ampersand (&). It's just too elaborate.

    It is the punctuation mark equivalent of the curly wurly, which I have made my feelings perfectly clean on in the past.

    It's also a close cousin of ?, and I think it's because of this you dislike poor &.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
