Get better!
I had one of those after shoulder surgery, it was very effective.

Feel better H.I. you be as good as new very soon,

Holy Sh*t, now we're talking like a bunch of old ladies in E9x OT. How sad. I remember the good old days, evidence below, when it was the Wild West and Sheriff Emission and his sidekick Deadeye Llando were patrolling the streets of another subforum. This kinder, gentler Off Topic thread is at maximum suckage.

I got one from HPowders. It seems he wasn't as plegmatic as he liked to appear to be.

Oddly enough, it was for his post-boosting shenanigans with his toy-boy that became the focus of his ire rather than my comparison of him to Quentin Crisp.

Anyway, go for it...how can you truly live if you are scared to die?

There is a McLaren MP4-12C parked in the garage at work. I hope I get to hear it leave today. It's incredibly small and low to the ground!

That's outside Sardi's, I recognize the marquee across the street! I knew that damned valet didn't take it right to the grage when I flipped him the keys. And I tipped him a couple bucks, too!

+1. It seems he was better at giving than receiving.

Thas's exactly where it was. The head of McLaren USA spoke to the Manhattan Ave. Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society and there was a complete car and a rolling chassis parked in front. "Chowder" meets at Sardis the second tuesday of each month. Vincent Sardi was a racer and a founding member. The featured speaker usually parks a car in front so I have similar shots of a Spyker fron when Victor Muller spoke, a Boss 302 from when Edsel Ford Spoke and a 110 year old Alco race car from when the curator of the Vanderbilt Cup races spoke. New Yorkers are usually oblivious to cars but those cars generally attract a lot of attention.

This is a Corvette Grand Sport (Replica) in front of Sardis





Here is a Spyker




And here is a picture from StatusFest 2011 which as you know is hosted by The Soup Nazi.

Cap'n, I'm coming into the City on Feb 13 for the reading of a friend's play. I'll spot you two tickets to the reading if you can get me into Sardi's as your guest on the 14th (I'd pick up my own meal cost of course.)

Consider it a done deal. Guests are always welcome at Chowder.

I'll wear jodhpurs and an ascot. I should fit right in, eh? I'll send you details on the play, and a flier.

PS Full disclosure; tickets to the reading are free, and should be worth every cent!

Due to my status as (only) vice president of the Madison Avenue Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society and the fact that you will be my guest you will be exempt from the Jodhpur/Ascot dress code.

I'm quite "conflicted" in here. Many "1 percenters" in here while my bank has just slammed me with yet another fee. As a 30 year bank customer, shame on them. On the other hand, I noted that local L.A. 'OWS' protest crowd were wearing Birkenstocks and high-end L.L. Bean wear. They parked their BMW, Mercedes several blocks away and carried their protest signs to my bank and their lunches were catered (typical L.A.). Nevertheless, I'm empathetic to the OWS movement if I can get these fees rolled back. There's no issue of "camping" here in my neighborhood as the protesters usually retreat to their 5 or 7-series at about 10 o'clock and return to their $1+ million dollar homes. It's unreal. I've joined the movement demanding that "large depositors" should be able to 'cut in line' at the teller window and have valet parking. No progress yet.

Shouldn't the 1%-ers be ale to have their own 'bank'? You know - where you only interact with other 1%-ers.... It has got to be a real drag mingling with the 99%-ers. Think about it, no longer having to suffer in line while some schmuck empties a sack of pennies on the teller counter and proceeds to count each and every penny, but in the process mis-counts and has to start all over again.... And again. And yet again. Having a 'special' place for 'special' customers has got to be worth something.

Maybe they could call it the Bank of the 1%-ers (Bot1% for short)?

Try Boston Private Bank & Trust, it's just what you're looking for. If any little old lady is counting her stack of century notes I assure you it will be in a separate office with a different adviser.

Yeah but Boston Private Bank & Trust sounds so politically neutral (kind of how Super PACs are named - Restore Our Future should really be called something like Romney's PAC).

Bank of the 1%-ers is just a more honest name....
