      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. UFOs: Jeff, IB, need mil pilot-speak translation

    Most of the wildlife is outside the ring. They've got a lot of land around the ring and offshoots. They used to let you in the door pretty easily. I went back a couple of years after doing a stint there and they had turned up the security immensely. Once I got inside I asked around to see why. Some yahoos came in and stole a bunch of copper from the magnet factory. (B.I.G. magnets all over the place.) The guys at the scrapyard thought the transaction it was a little funny so they called the lab and somebody went out with a Griger counter. The stuff was hot as hell. I hope some of the yahoos sat on the load on the way to the scrapyard.

    I miss it, but I don't miss all the maintenance. Don't have time for that much wrenching in this phase of my life. "There are two types of Italian car guys: the ones with busted knuckles and grime under their fingernails; and the ones who wear ascots and want to tell you about their mechanic named Tony. Only one of these types is worth listening to." With practice I go tot the point where I could remove and install the transmission in one evening.... With practice. I'm starting to think Miata.

    Don't know if it's Rock (and don't care), but it is one hell of an intro.

    Mine was a '74. You had to work on it three nights a week if you wanted to drive it on the weekends.

    Ah yes, I had that one and the Honda one too. Both were brilliant. My favorite art from it was in the Honda book where the octopus was doing a valve job ... four valves at a a time.
