      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. 2018 Winter Olympics!

    Ahhh. Makes more sense. The announcers kept referring to the runs themselves as the throwaway. Thanks.
  2. 2018 Winter Olympics!

    Women snowboard halfpipe telecast was maddening last night. They kept repeating that the scoring is "discarded high and low and average the remaining" when in fact it was clearly "best run of 3." They never mentioned that Chloe Kim started her runs at the top of the hill rather than from an unmarked lower rest spot used by most of the others. Seems to me that gives her more speed when she drops and that = more height down the pipe. She also completed her rotations better and kept her speed better than the ones who landed under rotated and scrubbed speed.

    Early boarders on SW seem to be a mix of old folks in wheelchairs and the rest who seem to walk the jetway with zero apparent issues and dash off the plane. One was a 20 something in stiletto heels. In contrast, on a recent flight a middle aged guy with an artificial leg boarded last on a recent flight. Like other things in life, sometimes the people who actually deserve the accommodation have the grit to not ask for special treatment. Respect.

    They need their own special hell...

    KEF is nice. GVA pretty good. AMS a bit of a zoo with construction. LHR would be tolerable if the announce the departure gate sooner and didn't face you to kill time in the main shopping mall terminal.

    I've come to like small airports like Manchester NH, Midway Chicago etc. Easy to navigate. Hate flying LAX, ORD, ATL, EWR, PHX etc.

    Have seen freshly burnt bodies in the morgue. Smells like charred meat, awful way to go if you're alive and burning.

    The rocket assist pod falls off. Still gotta be a helluva ride, especially for the first guy.
  9. carson wentz how pissed

    This. It's happened before. If you want all the glory for yourself play tennis or golf. Foles played well - Wentz should be happy compared to the alternative.
  10. 3 retirement scenerios.

    Assuming you are doing this by yourself?
  11. Quicksilver CEO missing, boat washes up empty

    Britain entered the war when Belgian neutrality was violated. All in all a tragic waste of human life in a conflict that laid the foundation for WW2. Brave soldiers and sailors led by some incompetents in a war between cousins. King George V, Tsar Nicholas II, and Kaiser Wilhelm were cousins. (Queen Victoria was German through her mother).

    Not WW2, War of 1812. They set fire to the Capitol the following day but a fortuitous heavy rainstorm put out the fire. WW2 ref is the declaration of Paris as an open city in the face of German invasion. To go back further in history, Washington would not have captured Cornwallis at Yorktown if the British fleet had been able to come up the Chesapeake to evacuate the redcoats. But the French fleet defeated the Brits in the battle of the Virginia capes, so Cornwallis was marooned on the peninsula.

    Citizens are often better than their governments.

    How did WW2 turn out in the end?

    Like how the US Government fled DC at let the British burn the White House in the War of 1812...
