I was backing up the guy on the knob while trying to enter a room at a house fire several years back; we got the door open and the room flashed. That was more fum than I wanted to have at the moment, to put it politely. the tanks and brackets of our SCBA took some neat, being the highest points on our persons.

Honestly, I do not really miss rec.boats because I find everything here. But I do feel old anyway.

I was a rec.music denizen in the days of the Kate Bush War - only 49 groups in those days.

Still have some Jack and some Mount Gay Extra Old and half a case of Sly Fox imperial IPA. Truck's good in this stuff, but I took a walk to one of the local bars that was open out of abject boredom. That didn't last long; my tolerance for a large crowd of drunk kiddies hammering various shots of Fireball and Rumchata apparently isn't very high.
