      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.

Dunno about that better looking than ever part. Seems like crap. I am the short one in this shot. It has been all down hill since.

 

Looks like you couldn't even keep your mouth shut then!! :P

Show up your pedicabs! Maybe Grumpy can pimp them in his hood... Seriously, a nice interview and it really brought to light the severity of the water levels there.36 feet! My Mom lives on LakeLanier and it got pretty bad there a few years ago but nothing like that.

Way to go Gouv! Just one question. You are making pedi-cabs to see you through the business drought, does that mean you are now a pediphile?

 

 

Yeah, yeah, coat, hat, I'm outta here...

Probably only in Austin which is so cool they always wear their sunglasses at night there. You see Austin isn't really a Texas city even though it is the capitol. I am pretty sure there is a plan that if Texas secedes from the US, they will leave Austin behind, surround it with a wall or something like West Berlin back in the day. Welcome to Austin, an island of culture in a vast redneck sea. Austin is where all of the old hippies go to die. It is the only city in Texas where a guy like Gouv can get away with hair that long on a man his age! :P

Cools beans, Gouv. I'm wondering if any of your pedicabs are down here. They're all over downtown but seem to be the open variety. I much prefer them to the horse drawn sparkly carriages.

Good media. Sure looks as if you are going to need more than just 'some' rain in order to fill the lake. Is the water bieng deverted that is supposed to be there?

 

Sail safe!

Damn you and your hurricane! How about a nice slow tropical depression? Storm surge makes me nervous.

 

And as it has been stated before, there are no natural lakes in Texas.

Not how I pictured him.

 

I think that would be true of most people here on SA if we have never met them. In real life I am 6'6", 240 lb., middle aged white male, with short gray hair.

Finally, a face and demeanor to go with an SA acquaintance. In this case, impressive and eloquent, Fred.

It triggered a dream last night where I was in a room full of us bozos, sipping drinks and wearing name tags, with the Gouv holding court.

Go pedicabs.

In the dream Snaggs was quite popular but invisible, just a name tag, so in curiosity I went looking for DoRag...

Take off those glasses he'd look like God.

 

Ya, well, that's like, your opinion man.

What, you never walked into a church and looked up to see an old white guy with flowy hair painted on the ceiling?

 

Sure he'd have to lose those stupid glasses and the paper suit plus I don't think anyone here wants to see him wearing just a towel ..........

nice job, gouv.... glad to see you are getting the word out about this. and wtf? you don't need a diet.... :)

are you sending some of those pedi cabs to new orleans? we started getting a few (now a lot) of those about a year ago.

 

I am building fiberglass parts for two local guys who bought a Seattle Company called Tipke Pedicabs. Tipke was formed by some wise fellow for making transportation availble during the Wrld's Fair that left the Space Needle as its landmark.

 

The seat parts shown in the video are my first seats off my new molds made 7" wider as American asses have grown since the seventies.

 

The guys who bought the Tipke company are a couple pretty impressive youngsters. They have a big van and a huge trailer which they load up and go places when they think there is money to be made. They do go to new Orleans during the Mardi Gras and have permits to operate in NO. They also went all the way to both the Republican and Democrat conventions this year and made money doing it.

 

Other jaunts include Rangers homestands in Arlington and big football weekends.

 

I am having a blast doing the pedicab stuff for a whole lot of reasons.

1. The enthusiasm is infectous

2. I haven't built full size molds since the seventies ( just motor mounts for J-24, a one meter long RC boat, and some other tiny things)

3. The fact I was already doing the pedicab molds and parts let me say yes when the

Guy asked me to build his toys in the USA.

3. I haven't run a fiberglass parts production department since 1980 and by summer I may have a whole new building dedicated to doing just that.

4. If we have the capacity to build small fiberglass parts...it is a lot shorter jump to building some sort of small boat and despite fears I am way way ahead of myself, i am already talking to people about my first love, doing something that could be very very big in the world of small boat sailing.

 

And as for that "needing a diet??" I am 60 lbs heavier than when I last ran a fiberglass production shop and at least 30 of that slows me down in a laser no matter how hard it is blowing...not to mention the fact people my age and shaped like me regularly grab their chests and forever stop doing anything.

 

It realy is time to SERIOUSLY start pimping the regatta so I will sign this one>>>

Is Lance Armstrong pimping a pedicab in Austin? Maybe not if there is any drug testing.

 

Well done Gouv. May your water levels rise. There are some good size boats in that puddle.

It's still 120 feet deep in that puddle. It's weird that it went to this level 2 years ago and has just kinda stayed there.

 

I'm also sure there isn't a pedicab driver here that could pass a drug test.

I was at that regatta! Good times!

 

However, that may have been a class highlight. Things change.
