      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.

  1. This just made me remember a book I had as a child. It was called "Beautiful Junk" It was an incredibly formative book for me. It's about the Watts Towers, and what people thought of them initially, and then how perceptions changed...... For some. Then I think of Emil Milan, who took scrap wood, and created beautiful treen. People thought he was nuts. Now they spend big bucks to get his work....
  2. Kind of like saying what's your favorite song, or your favorite painting? It changes with every thing. Some days I like Noguchi, some days Picasso, some days Oldenberg, some days some unknown person who carved a giant tree trunk into something that was just stunning...... But some days it's just nature. Most days actually.
  3. I wonder who'd win a real life game of Monopoly...... Kasparov, or Trump.... Trump already lost Boardwalk, and most of the blue squares..... What's left is Park Place and the railroads...... The rail roads are key. I'm going with Kasparov.
  4. He could be a dahctah! My aunt's second husband's first wife had a boy who wanted to be an actor, but he went to lawyer school in Brooklyn. They told him he was gonna be a dahctah of some kind, and he'd have some clients name Prudence..... So I guess maybe he was gonna be, you know, one of those female problem dahctahs....
  5. Had a friend in NoCal that used to live trap mice to use as Bass bait. Tie a string around their little necks with a treble hook about tail length back, cast out to the lily pads and wait for the explosion!
  6. Better to give, than receive.... But in this case....
  7. Do skate boarders use that as a ramp, or would that be unAustralian?
  8. RESIST. Trump won't care what a bunch of artists and humanitarians think. Hell, he didn't care what CEOs of multinational corporations thought earlier this week..... Soon it will be Trump and his corps of believers against the world. Paranoia..... Sometimes they really are out to getcha!
  9. Since way back when, when I worked in shops that did a lot of spray finishing, the people who invent stuff have come up with positive pressure air respirators. Much better than expecting a piece of stinky rubber to conform to your face and keep organic solvents from seeping in.
  10. Lacquer is worse.... Especially if your thoughtful, and caring boss cut it with MEK.... And your co worker put a hamburger in your respirator cartridge as a joke..... And people wonder why I have such vivid dreams............ in broad daylight.... While I'm driving......
  11. I've always been a sucker for that shellac aroma. But I will use either BIN or Kilz on the other rooms.
  12. These, by and large, are sculptures, not statues..... https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fyooniqimages.blob.core.windows.net%2Fyooniqimages-data-storage-resizedimagefilerepository%2FList%2F10058%2F0db295ef-441b-42ba-b312-096a8b896f1f%2FYooniqImages_100582421.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fyooniqimages.com%2Fimages%2Fdetail%2F100582423%2FCreative%2Fgreek-civilization-5th-century-b-c-bronze-statue-of-the-charioteer-of-delphi-also-known-as-heniokhos-circa-475-b-c-height-180-cm-from-delphi-greece&docid=L89N3DiZ4Zi6EM&tbnid=Qcc34yi1xDibqM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjrlN6fteHVAhXC5oMKHcTVAnI4ZBAzCBsoGTAZ..i&w=250&h=365&bih=680&biw=1424&q=The charioteer&ved=0ahUKEwjrlN6fteHVAhXC5oMKHcTVAnI4ZBAzCBsoGTAZ&iact=mrc&uact=8 That said, here is one of my favorites (If the link works) Why the fuck can't I C&P from a Google image?
