      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    If you get the chance, try to do the ghost tours out of the Menger Hotel. Also have a drink at the bar there.
  2. doing the right thing by our furry friends

    Sorry for your loss... Had to do that with two of mine. It ain't easy, but a lot of the time it's the kindest thing to do, for everyone involved. Wolfgang, Sophie and Sebastian will show her the ropes and keep her company over on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge till we get there... TT

  4. parents in age care

    Meli: I'm another one that can wholly identify with your plight. My mother is 89, we moved her into assisted living February this year. She is in the beginning stages of dementia, and was really a danger to herself while she was living alone. Luckily, (unluckily?), I live about 45 minutes away; the middle of the night phone calls accusing either me, my wife, or someone else had come over in the middle of the day while she was out and re-arraigned everything in her kitchen and laundry room and bedroom were getting more and more frequent. I had inspected everything, and knew that no-one had been in her house, much less moved things around. She was also alienating all of her friends and acquaintances with angry tirades, because she couldn't remember how to play the card or domino games with them. My brother joined the service in 1975 and never lived less than 3 hours away from here. Mid last year, when all of this started, she began calling him (in N. Carolina) stating that we were not believing anything she told us about people coming into her house while she was out. He ended up selling his house and pretty much everything else they owned to move down here and take care of her, since I wasn't. Well, to make a long story not much shorter, after about 2 weeks living with her, they found out just how far around the bend she had gotten. Moving her out and into assisted living was the hardest, most guilt-ridden process I have ever gone thru. The facility is great, lots of people she knows are already in there, the staff very caring and understanding. A couple years ago, when she was still pretty lucid, she had all of her power of attorney's transferred over to me: financial, health, the whole nine yards. So I was the one that had to sign everything, including the sale of her house, car, signing the applications to the facility she currently lives in, etc. I still get accused by her of stealing everything, not legally being able to sell her stuff, everything. It's pretty gut-wrenching every time it happens, but it gets a bit easier knowing that the woman that's berating me isn't the mother that raised me... PM me if your would like, want or need any support... TT
  5. Motorcycle Threads

    Pics or it never happened.... ;-) Well, I went and done it... I picked up a (new to me) 2003 ST1300 in Ft. Worth last Saturday. Bloody LOVE the thing so far. AND the SO even enjoys riding on it. She made the statement "it's a hell of a lot more comfortable than the '08 Ultra we had access to... It's got 62,500 miles on it (or did, anyway, before I got hold of it). It is (supposedly) a one-owner bike, silver over black, and still looks great. Going to be putting tires on it in the next couple weeks and doing a full service on it, just cause I don't know the whole history of it. Yeah, yeah, I know "pics or it never happened..." I'm still trying to find some shots of the '82 900C I had, but I'll get pic's of the new one up as soon as I stop riding long enough to get some good shots of it... TT
  6. Motorcycle Threads

    They are solid, well performing general purpose bikes. As long as you don't get more than about 90% of the way to "the edge" - you'll have fun doin' most anything you can on two wheels with 'em. Honda reliability, but, chasin' parts for any 20+ yr old metric bike can be a challenge. They're a bit tall, slightly top heavy, and if you crank hard on the throttle coming outta corners, it can take a few times to get used to the "shaft jack". I averaged about 40MPG in normal riding on the one I owned, moved from a V65 Sabre to it, the Sabre was quicker, but, the ST was much more comfortable and easier to work on. If you like UJMs (Universal Japanese Motorcycles), and don't need all the plastic, another very solid and comfortable bike that's available cheap is the Suzuki Bandit. The 1200 was built upon a de-tuned GSXR1100 engine, it pulled REAL hard without having to drop 4 gears coming out of the corner, was comfortable, and you could ride it 300 miles to the drag strip, run 11s, and drive it home w/no worries. Thanks for the input. I'm familiar with the "shaft jack" as you put it, I had a 900 Custom for a lot of years, but this is a bigger bike w/ more torque available. I do appreciate the heads-up on it. I've had a soft spot for the UJM forever it seems, and I don't mind the plastic. I like the way they look, and the comfort factor is way high for me. Thanks again for the insight, I think I'm just gonna have to pull the trigger on one of these... TT
  7. Motorcycle Threads

    Looking for some intelligent (?) input from you bike nerds: There are a couple of mid-90's Honda ST1100's for sale in the area for (what seems to me) reasonable money, between $2100 & $3000. Anyone got one? Pro's & con's of the machine? Everything I've read so far has been pretty positive (reliable, fairly good mileage, plenty of power, etc.) with the only real negatives being they are "boring" (whatever that means). Most of the one's I've seen for sale anywhere seem to be relatively high mileage (the one's I'm considering have 62,000 & 83,000 miles respectively). Thoughts? I'm not looking for a full-on sport bike or a full-on cruiser (had both in another life). Just want something I can spend time on while having a good time and use occasionally for commuting. Disclaimer: I've been riding since I was 14. Haven't owned my own bike in about 5 years, and looking to get back out there... TT
  8. Basal Cell Carcinoma

    My SO had similar surgery, but they ended up taking off half of her nose while doing it. I do applaud the dermatologist who did it for being thorough and getting all of it, but the larger-than-quarter sized wound he left because he seemed clueless to how the final product would look was devastating to her. I was glad that he got all of it... She freaked, and immediately jumped on the first plastic quack she could get an appointment with, not listening to me or anyone else about what a clown this guy was (he almost killed one of his ex-wives while performing surgery on her while he was high on coke...). He ended up taking a large patch from her forehead, passing it under a bridge of skin at the to of her nose and sewing it down to the wound on the nose bridge, then trying to pull the skin on her forehead together to cover the over-sized hole in her forehead. Afterwards, this clown merely blew it off on how bad it looked, stating "... it will all be fine once the swelling goes down. Here, let's just put her on some anti-depressants to help with the psychological trauma...". I don't think I have ever wanted to pound someone into the dirt so bad... He pretty much got run out of town because of his ineptness (he's in Dallas last I heard, you folks up there steer clear...), we tried to sue the guy for a shitty job, but really couldn't get any traction on it... She has since had at least 3 more cosmetic procedures by some very accomplished professionals in other cities (the main one used to do work on the wives of Spur's players... he was VERY good at his trade...). She has been told since that there is nothing more that they can do, short of some major reconstructive surgery that neither one of us really want to contemplate. And, while anyone who knew her before this fiasco still thinks she is a beautiful lady (as do I), she thinks that is the only thing people can see. Most people who didn't know her before don't really notice it, or if they do ask, are very sympathetic to what happened... One (somewhat) funny story: Just a couple days after her initial MoHs work, we were in a Hobby Lobby looking around. Some stupid 50's something twat and her friend came up to the wife (while I was standing there) and asked " if she was alright, and did I hit her..?" I merely looked at this slag and asked, very nicely, "Do you have any clue what basil cell carcinoma is, and how MoHs surgery worked, and that the wife just had this surgery a couple days prior." Then proceeded to let her know that," just because she made poor choices in men in her past, that not all women are as stupid as she was, and she might just want to mind her own fucking business before jumping to conclusions about other peoples relationships..." Mind you, there were about a dozen people in earshot of this conversation, and all were pretty much laughing at the idiot as she scurried away... YMMV, as always... TT

  12. Random PicThread

    Shee it, got me. What is the opposite of Oral? Anal? I was pondering that as well. Aural? Written, maybe? I would think that anal would be a companion word for oral. TT
  13. (801): Mid stroke she told me she'd had bigger. Replied I could tell. Sex ended right at that moment.
