      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.

  3. So once again Australia one ups the rest of the world with it's outrageous wildlife.
  4. The Dingo ate my baby!
  5. How about a pug? Or a bull dog?
  6. A chiapit?
  7. I guess if you chose the parking lot of a seedy motel for the reception apparently you need to pack some heat.
  8. Looks a lot like my pound puppy that I had for ten years. Yesterday driving home I was at a light next to a vehicle with a dog hanging out the window who was the spitting image, floppy mut ears, same waterproof fur. I couldn't help but grin, then I teared up. She was a fabulous, smart dog. I still miss her. Little dogs: My sister-in-law has a female Jack Russell who is really sweet and gets on well with other animals as well as people. Friends had a male Jack R and he was always rounding up people, especially at social gathering. I've heard Scotties are one person dominant and don't get on well with other animals either. If it were me, I'd put on my emo-proof suit and go to a local SPCA and shop about. When you take one into the separate area and sit down with them to have a get to know, it's always helpful to see if they allow you flip them on their back after you have been with them for a little bit. If they adamantly fight you they are dominate, if they give in completely they are submissive and if they let you flip them then struggle a little they are perfect (for me anyway). Best of luck finding your new travelling companion!
  9. You guys are amusing. I like the title, Fifty Shades
  10. Well done Matildas.
  11. I didn't know you could cook Chinese in a pressure cooker.
  12. That is actually a great idea. The chapter about going into Hampton Creek in SCUBA gear after my Reader Maui Jim's before the race would be fun to write.
  13. I lost the nut that holds the arm on my tortis shell Ray Bans. When I figured out where to get a nut I went looking for the arm, (had the glasses). Couldn't find it. Stashed the glasses. Years later I found the arm, happy days. Now I can't find the glasses part. Fm! Meanwhile I've gone thru the Maui Jim's sagas. Don't even get me started on the multiple Varneys stories. Gah! Ok yes I'm spoiled, so many glasses so many stories.
  14. Years ago while riding to my friends house, I rode through a residential neighborhood stop sign in Corona Del Mar and got busted by a cop. He wrote me a ticket for that and then proceeded to lecture my friend and I so long it got dark, so he gave us a ticket for not having bike lights too. Went to court and the judge gave me a warning and sentenced me to write an essay on why what I did was wrong. I did. Then as I left it on the kitchen table, my brother's friend read it, declared it shit, and torn it up. This was before I owned a computer. So I had to re-write it. Don't think I've ridden through a stop sign since. Bike riders sharing the road are a pain in the arse. Still, all the rules still apply and like most situations in life there are the people with common sense and the others who are either idiots or don't simply care about being courteous. I personally don't ride on the road any more except in neighborhoods. There are too many distracted drivers out there to make it safe. I'll stick with booms and sharks to get my danger thrills. PS: there is a section of town near where I live that has signs painted on the road that gives permission to riders to dominate the lane. The speed limit is only 25MPH any way and there are parked cars all down it. I'm guessing there have been bike vs opening door issues.
  15. I was thinking this thread was about either "Chef" from South Park or the BBC sitcom "Chef" with a character that has the best verbal put-downs ever expressed. (Sorry Lesbian Robot) Helium filled candy balloons.....? Try getting a water jug, tip in half a cup of rubbing alcohol, swirl it around then drop in a match. Probably just as fascinating.
