Good grief, you're right...to my great embarrassment. Thousands of views, and leave it up to the "ultimate classic car guy" to catch this. I'm reporting myself for "false and misleading" information.

Now "fixed."

I remember few details of my life 40 or so years ago, except for what "Althea," the Norwegian girl (my squeeze at the time) did to me. This ties into the Pontiac Firebird, but I don't want to test Kat's new powers right away.

Does the term "tranny" apply to Althea as well as the Firebird's 4 speed?

You would love to know, wouldn't you? She was gorgeous....but then again, she was Norwegian.

Used to be a moderator on a gun forum for years but walked away...IMHO the trick is not to have too many rules, have a forum host that believes the rules should be adhered to and to have moderators that are allowed to apply said rules. That said...IMHO the goal for all moderators is to be invisible until real nonsense brakes out.

Been ticked off elsewhere for making abbreviations of mild swear words... seems to be tolerated on here.

I am mindful that some words that don't cause any offence in multi-culti Wales are not allowed on this global forum... but I get that...it's safer to stick to plain English...be that UK or US English.


Like it hear...good balance and no such thing as a 'stupid' question.

Since you have a new set of responsibilities and time being limited you should send me goat to take care of. I can assure you she will be in good hands

Are you kidding?

Goat is helping me handle the new responsibilities!

I honestly thought about changing my avatar line to read "shepherding the goat herd"

Can you keep your brood down here please? We can hear the hootin' and hollerin' all the way in the F30 forum, very unseemly.

My wife is in Austin for the next two days. If you see her, remember, what happens in Mount Washington stays in Mount Washington.

Looks a little to soft. It needs red lightning bolts, and killstreak notches. She needs to show each time she bans someone.

So the secret is out.

Furby is a Republican.

That post would get you banned in some forums. Do two double entendres equal a quadruple entendre?

It uses the the count additive property so it's a triple entendre, or for the mathematically uninclined it's a three-way entendre

An uninclined three-way entendre...hmmmmm...my favourite entendre...

[Isn't uninclined just "flat", in the same way unsweetened ice tea is just ice tea???]

Furby is getting married, no need to worry. He has already stopped hanging out with his friends on tops of windswept mountains.

He has a good excuse though.

Apparently, the dog ate his BMW...nope, that's not it
...he burned his BMWlighting a fire to keep his family warm during a blizzard...nope
...he moved house and lost his BMW in one of the boxes...

You've been around long enough to know that it's spelled "sew." BTW, there are already six of us onboard to file a "friend of the court brief" for your sewt.
