      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. Staples don't feel any better to the patient than stitches. They both itch like hell. Staples can be put in faster, have a lower incidence of infection & are more easily removed. That being said, they have their limitations - they can't be used on thin skin, such as the hands or feet, & it's harder to align the edges of the skin being stapled. That's the short answer. Hoping all goes well, Catherine. Hang in there.
  2. What a shock to read about this, MSG. Been out for a couple years & now catching up. This is a long thread to catch up on & then see this here. My dad went through that, spent the rest of his life 'brown-bagging it', as we dubbed it. (Name that brown bag something. It really does help to deal with it.) Do yourself - do us - a favor & when they declare you free & clear (cuz we all know you'll win this thing) PLEASE continue to see your doc for your check-ups like religion! After Dad was declared free & clear, his doctor didn't schedule those appointments & one day it was too late. Better to go through those unpleasant visits & not need them than to not go & find out you should have. Of course, I know you will. Wish I'd gotten back online a couple weeks ago - I was in Albany on business. Could have stopped by with cookies or flowers or whatever & maybe some encouragement. And they're right - if you want something or don't want something, be it food, help, company - tell people. When they want to help, they'll help. And if you need alone time to recuperate, they'll understand that too. I'm glad you're home, that's a good sign & a good thing. We're all pulling for you.
  3. Snoring By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. 'You've got to have a room somewhere,' he pleaded. 'Or just a bed, I don't care where.' 'Well, I do have a double room with one occupant - an Air Force guy,' admitted the manager, 'and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you.' 'No problem,' the tired Marine assured him. 'I'll take it.' The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. 'How'd you sleep?' asked the manager. 'Never better.' The manager was impressed. 'No problem with the other guy snoring, then?' 'Nope, I shut him up in no time' said the Marine. 'How'd you manage that?' asked the manager. 'He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room,' the Marine' explained. 'I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching
  4. A WOMAN'S POEM Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man, who's not a creep, One who's handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen long, One who thinks before he speaks, One who'll call, not wait for weeks. I pray he's gainfully employed, When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed. Pulls out my chair and opens my door. Massages my back and begs to do more. Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind, Knows what to answer to 'how big is my behind?' I pray that this man will love me to no end, And always be my very best friend. A MAN'S POEM: I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac with huge boobs who owns a bar on a golf course, and loves to send me fishing and drinking. This doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit.
