  1. Hope you are well Rattler. You are missed at the matches. Sun
  2. I was curious as to how many 1st places there were at EOT so I counted the ones under "Category placement". As best as I could tell, there was 52. And people wonder why State and above matches cost so much...
  3. That's why the 1911 is still made today, even after 112 years. The simple fact that countless companies (including Colt) still manufacture millions copies of it is a testament to the durability and sturdiness of the design.
  4. Gotta use siwver buwwets for werewabbits.
  5. When I was a teenager and into my early 20's, I said I'll NEVER become my parents. Well, I haven't...I've become my Grandparents.
  6. When I saw the video this morning, I didn't realize that he'd high centered it. Now that I'm awake, it's obvious as day. He's still a dumbass though.
  7. I just can't understand how people are that stupid, especially "professional" drivers. Besides pulling onto the tracks to begin with, he then gets out to try to uncouple the trailer...instead of moving 20' forward or 50' backward. What a dumbass. Also, I've never seen a train stop that quickly.
  8. I would have responded...Please send pictures of the wench.
  9. Some "kids" don't deserve to be called junior.
  10. The last surviving founding member of the band Lynryd Skynyrd has died at the age of 71. I was, and still am, a big fan of their music. I went to the 3rd to last concert that the original band did in October 1977 in the Bayfront Center in St. Petersburg, Fl. The next day I went out and bought their Street Survivors album. Three days later their plane went down and crashed when it ran out of fuel. The crash killed songwriter/vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist/vocalist Steve Gains, background singer Cassie Gains (Steve's sister) and both pilots. Although 20 people survived, almost all of them were severely injured. The plane crash effectively ended Lynryd Skynyrd as a band for 10 years until Ronnie's brother, Johnny, reformed the band but it was never the same. Thank you for all of the great music that is still popular today. Rest in Peace Mr. Rossington https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/gary-rossington-original-lynyrd-skynyrd-guitarist-dead-71
  11. Happy Birthday Widder Did you have a lobster in each hand or did you just eat duelist?
  12. We are just in disagreement with each other, which is not uncommon for either one of us. I don't see it as fighting, at least not werewolf kind of fighting. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So far as the lane splitting, it's not legal in Florida. Personally, I'm against it. I see it every once in a while, but I'm not out in "work force" traffic too much anymore. I've had my vehicle damaged twice as a result of idiots trying to fit in between cars at a red light. They got to the front and hauled ass, I'm left with a damaged quarter panel and mirror. Probably wouldn't have mattered anyway, personal injury insurance (all that's required) doesn't cover property damage. I've witnessed people trying the white line in stopped traffic where the "kind and considerate" caged drivers allow another caged driver to cross the road to the median. Doesn't work out so well for the uncaged driver...especially when he's doing about 40+. Seen that one twice. Gave up riding bikes a long time ago. Just isn't worth it around here. Can't even imagine it in LA.
  13. SO WHAT?? Another countries laws, especially Great Britian's laws, have absolutely no bearing on the laws in the United States.
  14. I don't know if you noticed or not, but Great Britian's laws have been a non-factor in the United States for almost 250 years. Please make a note of that.
  15. Good question. I guess both of them would have to drink until it's lights out.
  16. How many Irishmen does it take to screw in a light bulb? Two. One to hold the bulb and the other to drink until the room starts spinning.
  17. No, it's because all electrical power distribution lines originate from overhead lines. Just no way to get away from it. Underground lines simply can only handle about 30% of the load of free air based powerlines. The fact that the power generating facilities haven't been built in years doesn't help things, nor does the increased electrical demand of todays usage. I've read that the if the indicator lights that are on everything plugged in, or hardwired, were (somehow) able to be disconnected, between 5 - 10% of all electrical usage would be reduced. I believe that. It's called parasitic draw. There's a lot of "indicator" type lights in my house but there's no way to turn them off. When you turn off the lights tonight, look at all of the small red, green, blue, etc. lights that are still on. You'll be surprised at what's still using power when you look. Clocks, electronics, stoves, microwaves, doorbells, smoke detectors, chargers...just name it. Parasitic draw.
  18. Back in the day, red shirts were worn on the second of the match after stabbing your finger on the trigger on the rifle trigger on the first day. Opponents wouldn't know you were wounded when you busted it open again on the second day. It's true! Look it up. Disclaimer, above post in jest.
  19. I always used mercury to look for uranium. Just pour it on the ground and follow it. When the mercury came to a stop, just scoop it up with a soup spoon. Dig around, get the uranium, toss it in your shirt pocket and head for the Uranium Trade Exchange. No problemo. Come home with a few extra bucks in your pocket and a real shiny spoon. No side effects at all as far as I can tell.
  20. I laugh every time I see the morons doing that. In many vehicles, if water gets in enough to cover the floorboards, the electronics are toast. The ones that do it during or after a hurricane/tropical storm are even more idiotic. The water that they are driving through, even if they make it though, will destroy their vehicle is just a short time...it's salt water.
