      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. Fremont California and Tesla

    Can only speak to the work culture from a SpaceX perspective. Wifey put in 9 years there. To say its demanding is probably an understatement. But you're surrounded by lots of real smart folks that are doing real cool shit. You can disagree with Elon but just don't think you'll win the argument. If Tesla has Christmas parties anything like their space brethren, then, unless you're the shy retiring type, you'll fit in fine. Those parties were off the hook for a corporate event. I think one year they had to break it up around 2:00am as the fist fights became a bit much.
  2. Sheeple are Coming!!!!

    Kiwi's have been working on that for years.

    Interesting thing about Trader Joe's is that for the most part, the price of an item is the same at all their stores. That means in for the 1/2 dozen or so outlets in NY, NY they have some of the lowest prices on the island. The lines for the checkout counter will circle to the back of the store on weekends.

    I believe it is one of the controversial access points to hike up to the Hollywood sign. But I might be full of shit
  5. Help me name my boat!

    We have a winner

    My suggestion is to go compound especially as we age and don't have the strength to steady a 40# or 50# draw. Science and technology are your friend. IMHO it's kinda like a campfire is how everybody used to cook meat when we lived in caves but now we have the ability to use Viking stoves and Traggers. YMMV.

    I've got a good buddy from Santa Barbara that has his sister in law in the hospital and her twin daughters missing in a slide. This just sucks.

  11. Key West things to do?

    I don't know if it is still around be Caroline's was a great, low key place to grab a bite.

    The only downside I see is that it distracts the coaching staff that is preparing for bowl games and teams don't have the ability to know how many they can sign as most of the underclassmen haven't made firm decisions as to leaving early or sticking around for their Sr year.
