I wasn't aware affording a lease on a
$50,000 German sport sedan is such an exclusive deal...

Wha...? Have we become the Bimmerfest equivalent of WalMart shoppers? Now I know how the E46'ers felt way back in 2007, and it ain't good.
Wait, there's hope! I could sell the E92, use the cash to lease an F30 for three years, and still have enough left over to rent a Maine beach house next Summer!
Yeah, a Victorian cottage near Nubble Light, overlooking Short Sands, could be just the ticket.

Are those goats grazing in the background of the pic? They look like goats.

Look closer......

Under 12,600X zoom those creatures in the background of BJ's Glamour shot look just like Gertrude and her buddies.

Well, that's two of us...nearly a "consensus" that bj is looking for photo ops in goat territory. What's up with this?

DSX's goat pic is (I believe) picked up from the L.A. Times Gay Parade coverage...the goat was their mascot this year (I just happened upon the coverage and certainly didn't attend the parade). Much controversy about the 'nose ring' as PETA lodged a strong protest. Of course it could be another goat...they all look a like...but the sun glasses give it away.

I'm sure that DSX didn't know the origin of the pic as it wasn't properly tagged.

Getting back to the "bj" shot, under strong magnification it appears the "little goats" are being initiated. Shouldn't this be banned? At least a 'PG' warning?

Arrgh,..... I've been looking at Switzerland photos all afternoon. I am immune to "Goats Inflagrante".

Besides, don't you know those European goats are much less inhibited than the US variety, except for perhaps the goats that live in Providence?

Totally agree Gary and posted as much a month ago when BJ first put up the sig. The damned things are everywhere in NJ and make a real mess of open lawns in parks and on golf courses and corporate landscapes.
In Poshville, NJ, where Beej lives now, everyone owns an Airedale to scare the birds away.
City people, what do they know, goats, geese, they're kinda alike, right?

TWO points to you for not calling them "Canadian" geese. BTW, they're delicious and you can just walk right up to them for a a "dinner" capture.

Good substitute for turkey this month. Any comments?

So. You deny that this is you? I didn't want to bring it up, and have always kept my promise to ///M-rated, but we had no such deal.

I NEVER would have had slits down the side of my Speedos...not to mention that this dude looks 40 years younger than me and has an envious amount of hair on his head.

Yes, the damned things are vicious as hell and capable of giving quite a nibble. Also, the meat is gamey and on the greasey side.
Not that I have ever blasted one with a Remington Model 870 12 ga. shotgun from 10 yards using double ought buckshot. Just sayin'. However, if that were to have happened I can advise that they are fast learners.

I'm sorry if this is new-news to you, but yes, you should feel just like the E46'ers did back in 2007 when they suddenly realized that their cars looked old and most of the forum chat was between 17 year olds discussing how best to spend their Bar Mitzvah money on their used cars, popping the occasional "what's the snowflake?" query.

There are only two ways out of your dilemma:

1. Put it in a barn, have your grandchildren wait 40 years until the E90's are considered "classics".

2. Trade it in for an F30.

Geese at the local state park.

They were in the process of congregating to spell "BMW" but I took the photo a moment too soon.

We cannot. It is near impossible to get a firearm into Canada. I do every year for a competition in Toronto (two silvers, one gold, thank you very much). It requires multiple forms submitted to the Chief Firearms Officer, RCMP, Ontario and permits faxed back. Then when you arrive at the assigned crossing, and ONLY that crossing, you have to explain everything to the border guard who has no idea what to do with all the paperwork.
Blast your own geese.

There is a community on the S.F. peninsula - Foster City (just south of SFO), where the geese walk on the city streets (at will!). Residents yield to the geese, because hitting one at 35 mph will do serious damage to a car. If you honk at the geese while they are walking on the street, they walk even slower as their way to give you the middle-fingered wave.

It can do a disastrous damage to a plane!

I am not sure this community of geese even know how to fly (not to mention whether they can actually fly - their mass probably exceeds the lifting ability of their wings...). That is what happens when the food supply is abundant and predators are basically non-existent.
