      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. HDTV Antenna Anarachy

    Anyone tried one of these? Here in RI we are stuck with Cox Communications for cable and internet service and they are expensive and pretty much universally hated by everyone. Wondering if these things actually work? What's the catch? Any type or brand better than another? Internet research makes them sound like a magic bullet but would like to know if anyone here has any real world experience with them- Any and all feedback appreciated! Thanks, Serge
  2. Jeep.

    Hate to piss in your cereal but I had a Cherokee in the early 90's Biggest piece of shit automobile I ever owned. Lousy mileage, no interior space, tons of wind noise on the highway, and it began falling apart before I was off the lot at the dealer. I've been a mini-van guy ever since.
  3. Walter Becker DTS

    This really hits home- Becker did an album called "11 Tracks Of Whack" that is one of my all time favorites- Check out a song called "Surf And/Or Die" Has a slightly different meaning now but a really good song from a really good album. I'm in that age group where I have "Aja" on vinyl, casette, CD and in my iPod. Amazing what he and Fagan were able to create, and what a roster of musicians they utilized- "Aja" has a different phenomenal drummer on just about every song. RIP Walter- Thanks for the great music and have fun doing take after take in the big recording studio in the sky. Serge
  4. So Long Spicey, We'll Miss Ya

    1- I understand that Spicer was getting paid about $170,000 / year. Not bad but there is no way I would humiliate myself the way he has for that little dough 2- If he knew he was "resigning" he should have had some fun with it- Some good one-liners at Donny's expense would have been great 3- Good bet that the book advance has been in his bank account for a month, the book has already been (ghost) written, and it will be on the shelves very soon. Look for Spidey on the book tour in a town near you any day now!
  5. One Small step for man...

    Apollo 11 Moon landing- was not quite a year old but mom held me in front of the TV so I could say I saw it. I remember seeing later launches live- I LOVED all the fire and flames. I was and still am a total pyromainiac. Read how they started the 1st stage engines here- total engineer porn! https://www.awesomestories.com/asset/view/F-1-Engine-Propulsion-of-the-Saturn-V-Moon-Rocket Challenger- Home from high school (senior year) due to snow. Watching the dishwasher repair guy work on the busted Maytag when my friend Andy calls and says turn on the TV.... Columbia- On the ice in Plattsburgh NY waiting for opening ceremony of 2003 DN Ice Yacht worlds to get underway when I notice one of the scorekeepers is weeping.... Great movie about the moon landing called "The Dish" You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll cheer out loud! Check it out if you haven't seen it.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dish
  6. Gregg Allman DTS

    Interesting interview from a few years back.....
  7. Man-buns: finally a reason.....

    The Man-Bun. Known in some circles as a "bitch-handle"
  8. Noise Cancelling Headphone Anarchy

    Thanks for the input gang- have a lot of research to do but will pick up a set soon- Thanks, Serge
  9. Et tu Kellyanne?

    So she sold out to that level for 2 million? Good for her. She got to put a dollar value on her soul. Thanks a shit-load Kelly.
  10. Boston Whaler Anarchy

    The 13' is a classic. The motor to have back in the day was a 35 HP, Johnson or Evinrude. A Mercury was considered unreliable and no good for salt water, a Chrysler didn't merit a discussion, and Yamaha, Suzuki, and Honda only made cars and motorcycles. Two-stroke, of course, no oil injection so a blue cloud of exhaust followed you everywhere. I can still smell it.... Used to be able to pull a water skier with two people in the boat. Granted, we were young and skinny but still... A 40 HP 4-stroke would probably be great, the fact that they are so quiet is a plus as you'll be sitting right next to the motor. They do slam so think about how you're going to sit and drive it, and don't even think about sitting up front! The Boston Whaler factory was in Rockland, MA back in the day- there is a Home Depot on the site now. I get tingle in my spine when I go there as the first boat I ever went on as a baby/toddler was a Whaler, built right there. The very spot where the trouble all began.... Have fun and keep us posted!
  11. Noise Cancelling Headphone Anarchy

    Hello All- I'm looking to upgrade from my trusty 3M WorkTunes headphones as I seem to spending more and more time around loud engines and yard equipment lately. Are active noise cancelling headphones worth the extra price? And do they offer that much more protection for the ears? I already have a bit of hearing loss and don't want to make it worse.... Of course I want to be able to listen to music while I work so BlueTooth is a necessity- As always any suggestions / advice will be greatly appreciated! Serge
  12. Why I prefer the old Americas Cup Regattas

    The Race Four dismasting is still up- but Race One is MIA. I know that race had to be a tough one to watch.....
  13. Why I prefer the old Americas Cup Regattas

    I've been looking for video of the 2003 cup match, specifically the first race. Can't seem to find it on the interweb. Anyone have any ideas? All help much appreciated- Serge
  14. $146,000/day to hide Melania

    As frugal as I am I think it's almost worth it to have her squirreled away and spending as little time in the public eye as possible. During the election didn't she say (without trying to be ironic) her big cause as First Lady would be to campaign against bullying on social media?
  15. Favorite concept albums

    Both mentioned earlier I think- Although John Lennon once pointed out that "Sgt Pepper" wasn't really a concept album. Go figure....
