      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. firefox v57 quantum

    Also use DuckDuckGo... Been noticing FF has been slowing down recently, but was too fat-dumb-happy to verify the version. Somehow I'm running the 32-bit FF version on Win 7 64-bit (verified in Computer--> Properties). Tried to upgrade to V57, but states it can't upgrade on a 32-bit OS. Guess I'll uninstall FF v52 (32-bit) and then try a fresh install of v57. Anyone else seen this issue ? Mozilla help seems oblivious... Chrome is still normal speed
  2. Best Rock Song Intros

    Best intro in a rock movie:

  5. NFL 2017

    The best part of this season is probably TD celebrations.... potato-sack race, rock 'em-sock 'em robots, etc. We need a best-of show ! Another comical note... the Eagles scored so much, the stadium ran out of fireworks. First time for everything.
  6. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    That's what Fuiava (sp ?) said when they left HI......
  7. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Probably due to some psychological issue with delusions.... Ms Appel might sincerely believe all the lies/embellishments she has been conjuring up for 5 months. She wants to turn this "adventure" into a lifetime of fame and will say anything to achieve it, no matter how absurd.

  15. Lets Make A Deal - Monty Hall DTS

    Was having a conversation with a politico about what the US Founding Fathers would think of the US if they could time travel to today.... He asked "What would they think of what we have done to the Constitution ?"... My reply: "Screw the Constitution, what would they think of Game Shows ?" From the lyrical genius of Steve Goodman (with some help from Jimmy Buffett): Oh I took a wrong turn, it was the right turn My turn to have me a ball Boys at the shop told me just where to stop If I wanted to play for it all I didn't know I'd find her on daytime TV My whole world lies waiting behind door number three I chose my apparel, wore a beer barrel And they rolled me to the very first row I held a big sign that said "Kiss me I'm a baker, and Monty I sure need the dough!" Then I grabbed that sucker by the throat Until he called on me Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three And I don't want what Jay's got on his table Or the box Carol Merrill points to on the floor No, I'll hold out just as long as I am able Until I can unlock that lucky door Well, she's no big deal to most folks But she's everything to me Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three Oh Monty, Monty, Monty, I am walking down your hall God be, I lost my seat but I'm not a man to crawl No I didn't get rich you son of a bitch I'll be back just wait and see Cause my whole world lies waiting behind door number three Yes my whole world lies waiting behind door number three
