      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. The Ashes 2017

    It has been discussed on here before, much like we have discussed how the World series of Baseball only features teams from North America. "The term originated in a satirical obituary published in a British newspaper, The Sporting Times, immediately after Australia's 1882 victory at The Oval, their first Test win on English soil. The obituary stated that English cricket had died, and "the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia".The mythical ashes immediately became associated with the 1882–83 series played in Australia, before which the English captain Ivo Bligh had vowed to "regain those ashes". Ignore what some might say; cricket is a far superior game to baseball, there are so many nuisances and influences on how the game is played and won; apart from tactics and player ability there are other factors such as the weather, how long and green the grass on the pitch is and how dense the soil beneath the grass is. There are currently 3 main formats of the game. At it's most basic is 20/20. Each team faces a maximum of 120 balls or pitches. Short, fast and furious the game is over in a couple of hours; think windward/ leeward. One day is longer with each team facing a maximum of 300 balls: think club course. Unless the ball is severely damaged or lost, the same ball is used for those 300 pitches, which means that it handles and flies differently through the air as it loses it's shine and the core is bashed. Equally the grass pitch changes over the course of the game equally effecting how the ball bounces of it. And then there is test cricket which is played over a maximum of 5 full days, each team can have up to two batting innings, this can include all of the teams 11 players including the bowlers- there is no designated hitters. But if the opening batters don't get out they can bat right through the whole inning. The ball is changed after every 500 balls or so, but over the 5 days the way the ball bounces on the grass pitch as it drys out gets warn etc. changes how the ball flies through the air. Add in player fatigue, concentration levels, pressure and it is a true test of the players skill, cunning and determination; think ocean racing.

    I fucking hear ya Capt. (loved the songs you posted by the way.) There have been some good songs posted here but i thought we were talking about intros? I was amazed that the first song that came to my mind wasn't posted here yet. Love it or loathe it you can't deny that the opening bars of this song are not memorable:

    I am so glad that Jeffie finally got his masturbatory fantasy of a good guy with a gun killing a bad guy with a gun. I know he must be a little disappointed that he wasn’t the good guy but I’m sure that fantasy lives on.
