      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. Help me cure my polynavicular morbus

    Don't be so hard on yourself. You'll realise when you get it up and running that you find a use for it and therefore did need it after all.
  2. Fails

    I heard somewhere that the bowman was actually on the bow when that shot was taken. Can you shed any light on that?

    Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.
  4. Say It from the FP

    Tell that to the kids today, they won't believe you.
  5. annoying use of the language

    My boss asked me to "establish the fact-pattern and circle back on that piece". I shit you not. May have mentioned this before but it still bothers me.

    Her tit's what? Colour? Side? Shape? (See what I did there?)
  7. G Capt news

    Parking by touch.
  8. F@#%ing Mice in car anarchy.

    A similar question with crickets - how do they jump with balls that big? Maybe they're Australian moths and crickets, bodies in proportion to these balls; everything there is designed to kill you so the Oz moths and crickets do it by blunt force trauma to your head. To the OP: I was having a smoke (yeah, yeah) in the basement garage at the office when a colleague pulled his diesel Range Rover into a parking space beside me. After he shut down and got out, there was an unusual noise still coming from the car. We looked, puzzled, at each other for a few moments, he opened the bonnet (hood) and, lo and behold, there was a kitten sitting on his air cleaner, mewing. Turns out the little fucker came all the way from Limerick. And survived. Reckon he's your solution. Limerick is fondly referred to as "Stab City" so he'd be well hard. "A few small mice? No fuckin' problem, Boy!"

    "She said that she had always wanted to fish from a boat, as opposed to from the shore. So I bought a boat from this nice guy Rusty Laru and off we went. Everything went fine for a couple of hours; the sun shone, we had a snack and even caught some fish. Suddenly, out of nowhere, there was a waterspout. It bore down on us and snatched my wife away before I could do anything about it. And that, Your Honour, is the case for the defence."

    Nice mutt. And on the right is?? Something from Star Wars??
  13. annoying use of the language

    Here's a rule I sometimes apply: Never use two words when one, or fewer, will do.
  14. annoying use of the language

    Using the word "multiple" when describing more than a single instance, in an attempt to sound all official and shit, like. FFS, just say "many", "some", "a few". I am proud that I once used the phrase "let's throw that into the think-wok and give it a stir" in a meeting and only one other person noticed the sarcasm.
  15. annoying use of the language

    Similarly, "Where are you at?" What's wrong with "Where are you?"?
  16. Is Clean gone ?

    I know a chap in a wheelchair who gets that question all the time and it goes like this: "You know you can play basketball in a wheelchair?" "No, I can't" "Of course you can." " No, I can't" "What makes you say that?" "I don't know the rules. Now fuck off and patronise someone else."
