      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. I do love it when you go on a tear. Cellists!
  2. Anyone have backyard chickens?

    You are a guy of many talents Mr. Guy. Hot rodder, sailor, chicken farmer. Are you just going to keep doling out the surprises one by one or how about just listing everything now, I hate waiting!

    Ahh, special weapons.

    Where were you at and what years? I was at the hospital in Nuernberg from January 1975 to August 1976.

    Hey, Short Meli, I was thinking about your Spanish beer dilemma. Just look at what the locals are drinking, that should help you.
  6. Tired of being called Boss

    From my experience in the military, when your former co-workers still address you as Chief, it's a sign of respect. I always saved that form of address for the ones that were really great to work for, the kind you really wanted to have as a boss. I could go on with the superlatives but you get the idea. Good on you.

    For those who don't know, in German 'gross' means 'large'.

    It almost makes me proud of my Pacer!

    Somewhere in the US.
  10. Plane Engine Explodes Kills Passenger

    How about the guy in the '70s on a DC 10. Same thing happened, engine threw a blade, broke the window and the guy got sucked out of the window and into the engine! The story said they found his remains 2 years later. It sure must have sucked to be him. Edit: Here is the story from CBS Aimer said there was a similar incident in 1973, when a National Airlines DC-10 suffered an engine failure and one of the fan blades hit a window. It sucked a grown man out of the window and into the same engine on that side, Aimer said. His body was not found for about two years, Aimer said.

    My sister had a boyfriend that had an Opel GT. Now that was cool.
  12. Korean War to end.

    The Korean people are quite wonderful. Warm genuine, and generous in my experience. I lived about 50 miles south of Seoul, it's much quieter in the countryside. Seoul has its charms but it isn't high on my list of favorite big cities in the world.
  13. Did you think it was over when Hitler bombed Pearl Harbor???

    I am busy collecting all of my senior citizen discounts here. A lot of them begin at age 60. There has to be some reward for growing old!

    Thanks for the down in the weeds info IB, you don't find that kind of stuff in the news reports. If I recall correctly they keep detailed records on the metal they use for those blades, all the way back to the creation of the alloy billet. Is that the case?
