      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. Would you trade peace with NK to see Trump impeached

    Joey, have you ever been…in a Turkish Prison?
  2. What is a Libertarian?

    Except that it is Australian
  3. What is a Libertarian?

    I love riding on DC-3s I kick myself all the time for turning down a cheap DC-3 type rating. Cheap is relative to CFI pay - it was still out of reach for me back then
  4. What is a Libertarian?

    Libertarian theory works when consumers have infinite time and money to investigate everything they buy. Say I decide to start Kent Island Airlines and I am cheap.I buy an old 1930s era DC-3 and have at it. Tickets on my airline are $100. Libertarian Airlines moves in next door. They too buy 80 year old DC-3s. They skip some expensive inspections and modifications required by the FAA because libertarians don't need that shit. They sell tickets for $50. Are you going to bring an X-Ray machine and an eddy-current tester with you when you buy tickets * and yes, if you were wondering,it is perfectly legal to have 80 year old airplanes in your airline
  5. The recycling house of cards collapses.

    A friend of mine became quite rich recycling oil. Recycling works very very well if the outputs are worth more than the inputs. When that is not the case, it gets a bit harder.
  6. What is a Libertarian?

    This test is HUGELY biased. For one thing, "Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" is commonly used to represent a violent or savage society. What it *actually meant when written* back in the day was the exact opposite. If someone pokes your eye out, you don't kill them and and their entire family, you poke their eye out. This was directing people to quit taking revenge disproportionate to the offense. There were also a bunch of questions that only the most blatant and racist person would agree with. In the wider world, I don't want the government to regulate my land at all, but please regulate the shit out of all my neighbors
  7. The recycling house of cards collapses.

    I have an old car I am about to recycle. People will pay me for it You can recycle old computers too. They all get shipped to India, burned in a big pile, and barefoot kids sort through the toxic slag for metal bits.
  8. What is a Libertarian?

    Exact same place for me.
  9. What is a Libertarian?

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
  10. What is a Libertarian?

    Meli - do you think the government should provide health care and do you think the government taxing you to provide health care for others is theft? NO/YES = libertarian YES/NO = not a libertarian YES/YES or NO/NO = quit smoking crack,it is bad for you. My definition - Libertarians are in love with their alternative universe self that rides around with a few guns strapped on in their Rolls Royce counting all the millions of dollars they make because the government bureaucrats quit ruining all their plans They have no idea they are cynically manipulated by their corporate masters to get government out of the way of their real overlords that have none of the last shreds of decency that still linger in government officials. * not that all libertarian ideas are bad, they called drug prohibition correctly for one thing
  11. Sorry, I am not convinced. He is too fucking stupid to pull it off. He thought he was scamming the Russians for free money and still does
  12. Come inside a 1961 Alden Challenger lazarette.

    Solid fiberglass decks SUCK in the (drip drip drip) winter! OTOH they will be solid 100 years from now. Wood cored ones, well maybe.....maybe not.
  13. Would you trade peace with HK to see Trump impeached?

    I refuse to suffer under the lash of the Honk Kong Marines. I told all 10 of them there was a sale going on at the local whorehouse and this seems to have worked, the coast is clear for me to go the 7-11 now.
  14. Drip Drip Drip

    Tom can be the head of the Dept. of Rimfire
  15. Would you trade peace with HK to see Trump impeached?

    I look forward to the day my sons are not sent off to die in Hong Kong and my daughters no longer cower under the rain of bombs falling from the Hong Kong Air Force.
