Nah, they wouldn't do such a thing in LA. Here in Foley, AL at Lamberts Cafe they just throw you the rolls all the away across the dining room.

  If they had all that gravy on them it would make them hard to catch!

 

Eaten at Lamberts a number of times.   "Home of the Throwed Rolls".

No Snaggs, I'm not dismissing all of you folks.   Just most of them.   I've lived in the US, Korea, Japan, Germany, and Poland.  Each country has its charms and its problems.  I was in the A

Tony's Brittania restaurant in Takapuna back in the early 80s.  Was there one night with my flatmates.  We were in our early 20s.  Seated below a small mezzanine.  We'd had a few...... when one of us tossed a bread roll upstairs......   Down it came........ up it went..... down it came with a couple more.... then a head pops over the rail

BOYDY!!!!!!   It was a mate of ours we didn't realise was dining there that night.

Food fight ensues......

Did they pay him to get their logos put on?

Or will they pay him to get them removed?

 

Paid in free junk food for life!!  Gotta admit though that a 2 dollar McDouble hits the spot, once in a while, when I am on the go, chasing rental property BS....

On occasion, fine... but I think you chase rental BS often (part of your game I would imagine).  So pack your lunches if you can.

Its the processed food that is the problem.  The more mankind fiddles with food from nature the worse it gets.   I saw an article on dementia a few days ago that links processed food.  Surprise surprise.

End of unsolicited advice for the day.  Enjoy lunch.

what scares me, is that the rudder shaft looks about 20cm long, unless there's some weird 45* appendage at the bottom...

I'm pretty sure the shaft is at 90 degrees to the hull, not vertical.

My Columbia 43 was similar and that's how it was set up.

Speaking of Photoshop, does this Rutter even work?

It doesn't matter - the rest of the hull design doesn't work either.

The downstairs apartment at my in-laws beach house had what we called the Kervorkian stove.  It was a stainless steel combo electric stove and sink.

And at xmas time someone always comes into the hardware store for a double male extension cord.

from back in the day when they didn't use forceps and pulled you out of your mom by your ears..

:D

Looks more like the forceps kept slipping off so they moved to the ears.

:lol: I still remember the first time I heard about that - a boat on CL that was being sold because the guy needed the capital for his anal bleaching business.

I figured it was some sort of bizarre joke but I looked it up and sure enough... it's a thing.

How much anal would you have to be involved in for that to become an issue? :lol:

"Anal bleach - it's not just for porn stars".

I'm blaming SA forums for educating me about this subject. :P

There are a lot of subjects discussed here that are worse than anal bleaching.

Without a doubt................just another subject I was blissfully unaware of before venturing into this nut house.

One night many years ago I exited the highway and stopped for the red light at the top of the exit; the car next to me asked why “the donut in my rear wheel is glowing” just as the aroma of hot brakes hit my nose. I got out and looked, sure enough the brake rotor was glowing a very bright orange. The caliper must have stuck “on” enough to drag the pads and heat it up, which then seized after I stopped. Fortunately I was only a mile from home and it freed up after about a 20 minute cool down so I eased it home; caliper, rotor and of course pads were totally fried, rubber on the tire was cooked some too and paint on the wheel was discolored. Bummer it was early 80’s pre-cellphones era so I didn’t get a pic of the glowing rotor which was pretty interesting to see.

heading out for 13 hour drive to school with my buddy in his 67' cougar interceptor,  bang a left turn to head down the ramp onto the highway,  he goes,  "what was that puff of smoke", didn't see anything, say, maybe dirt on the side of the road..  about 3 mile later, rear left wheel with axle , passed us on the highway....

I happened to be in Milan years ago leading up to the Italian Grand Prix. I got on the train, got off at Imola and walked into a strangely vacant track. Turns out i chose the wrong weekend. So instead, I sat in the stands and watched Senna and Mansell rip around the track. In the glooming of the evening, I remember the glow from the discs popping as they braked for the hairpin. Memorable day.

Reminds me of a Ford ad back in the 60's when the GT40 was on top - it showed a side shot as the cars slowed from the Mulsanne - they were running wire wheels at the time and you could see the rotors start to glow red then yellow then a flicker of white before the brakes were released.

White hot rotors :blink:

For the price of one 2 deer you could get three 1 deer and for one 3 deer you could almost get four 1 deer. The humanity!

The 2 deer is the same size as the 3 deer, only horizontal.

Civilian Passenger Accidentally Ejects Himself Mid-Flight from French Fighter Jet. 

The 64-year-old manager at a French defense manufacturer had no experience flying in a fighter jet, nor had he ever expressed any desire to do so.  His colleagues surprised him with the gift of flying in a fighter jet he felt he couldn't say no. He didn't want to be rude.  But he was terrified. 

The man listened, stressed and confused, during a safety briefing when he was informed on how his ejector seat worked.  He was so nervous he didn't properly check his safety equipment.  But despite his inexperience and stress, the passenger was mostly in charge of securing himself in the cockpit.  This meant when they took off, his helmet had not been properly secured so it went flying in midair when he was ejected. 

The plane was subjected to a negative gravitational load factor, which can create the feeling of being upside down, the passenger reached for something to hold onto, but inadvertently grabbed the ejector handle. 

The man's parachute deployed and he landed in a field, sustaining minor injuries that required him to be taken to a hospital.  Despite the jet normally ejecting both the passenger and pilot when one of them pulls the ejector handle, the mechanism failed and only the passenger went flying.  The pilot remained in the cockpit and was eventually able to safely land the plane back at the airbase.

There were a lot of goofy rutters in those days but keep in mind that Bruce King knew what he was doing.

Back in the day, I thought the Erickson 35 was a damn good looking boat. I still like the looks......above the waterline.
