I assume I am seeing a rubber or urethane or some super secret coating on that boat's hull that you can't tell us about?

If you look way down at the bottom of the first page there is a real time statistic which is interesting;

"Threads: 510,820, Posts: 5,867,504, Members: 232,918"

That means that the average thread gets about 11 posts (including the OP). Heck, we beat that in E9x with threads like "Where do you keep your owner's manual?" What is the matter with us? Should we be concerned? Will the Red Sox clinch last place by July 4th?

Can't answer that. Very few people know the super secret stuff. Even most of the crew will never know the full capabilities of the ship they serve on.

Something tells me that if the topic has turned to subs, Furby will be telling us about where to get the best one made with pastrami on rye.

Found this on my computer...Merry Old England!

Quote:
Taken from the Guardian : an actual letter sent by the Inland Revenue.
Quote:

Dear Mr Addison,

I am writing to you to express our thanks for your more than prompt reply to our latest communication, and also to answer some of the points you raise. I will address them, as ever, in order.

Firstly, I must take issue with your description of our last communication as a "begging letter". It might perhaps more properly be referred to as a "tax demand". This is how we, at the Inland Revenue have always, for reasons of accuracy, traditionally referred to such documents.

Secondly, your frustration at our adding to the "endless stream of crapulent whining and panhandling vomited daily through the letterbox on to the doormat" has been noted. However, whilst I have naturally not seen the other letters to which you refer I would cautiously suggest that their being from "pauper councils, Lombardy pirate banking houses and pissant gas-mongerers"
might indicate that your decision to "file them next to the toilet in case of emergencies" is at best a little ill-advised. In common with my own organisation, it is unlikely that the senders of these letters do see you as a "lackwit bumpkin" or, come to that, a "sodding charity". More likely they see you as a citizen of Great Britain, with a responsibility to contribute to the upkeep of the nation as a whole.

Which brings me to my next point. Whilst there may be some spirit of truth in your assertion that the taxes you pay "go to shore up the canker-blighted, toppling folly that is the Public Services", a moment's rudimentary calculation ought to disabuse you of the notion that the government in any way expects you to "stump up for the whole damned party"
yourself. The estimates you provide for the Chancellor's disbursement of the funds levied by taxation, whilst colourful, are, in fairness, a little off the mark. Less than you seem to imagine is spent on "junkets for Bunterish lickspittles" and "dancing whores" whilst far more than you have accounted for is allocated to, for example, "that box-ticking fašade of a university system".

A couple of technical points arising from direct queries. The reason we don't simply write "Muggins" on the envelope has to do with the vagaries of the postal system. You can rest assured that "sucking the very marrows of those with nothing else to give" has never been considered as a practice because even if the Personal Allowance didn't render it irrelevant, the sheer medicallogistics involved would make it financially unviable. I trust this has helped. In the meantime, whilst I would not in any way wish to influence your decision one way or the other, I ought to point out that even if you did choose to "give the whole foul jamboree up and go and live in India" you would still owe us the money. Please forward it by Friday.

Yours Sincerely,
H J Lee
Customer Relations

Well now I won't. Just live with your sub-standard Texas subs.

Btw, I know where to get amazing Texas style smoked bbq in philly.

Oh and on a side note Gia is kicking my butt in scrabble. I am pretty sure Gia's first language is english and her poor grammar is all an act

That is fitting as we have a place here called Texadelphia that does a pretty good Philly Cheese Steak sandwich (with a twist).

It's a deal! And when I finally make it to C2C, we'll go get some Philly-Tex BBQ.
(Of course, we'll have to invite Angler along on that one.)

They will never catch up. Us E36ers usually dont have as-high profile jobs as the E9xers, meaning they work more often and have less time to troll the interwebs like us. Except Emission...he gets paid to drive cars and write about them

(usually is bolded because it is not entirely true for either party specified)
