  1. Snif Snif……. Smells like Teen Spirit
  2. Seems I am really old.... there was no Playboy for that month and would not be... for more than a year and a half when Marilyn Monroe was on the cover.
  3. Amazon


    That was my experience, as well. Horrible texture coupled with the fact that I grew up in So. Cal., where they are garden pests, make them very unattractive. I grew up with my very old school Florida pioneers family... Floridas version of Swamp People... I have ZERO food aversions. Addendum Someone mentioned calamari.... Jerry there is a little restaurant on 52nd and Sandy... Zien Hong... their pepper salted squid is to die for... and they have a VERY diverse menu Vietnamese seafood menu.... Never had anything there that was not just seriously great food....
  4. I think of it as a place for certain people to exercise their BDSM skills.
  5. Morning chuckle - thanks. It is good to know that at least something on this planet has their shit together
  6. My uncle used to have a house there... Used to... destroyed years ago.... I feel bad for all the folks in NC ( lots of relatives) who were in harms way and now dealing with the aftermath and flooding. My 89 year old Mom lives 100 yards from the Atlantic Ocean in Myrtle Beach and evacuated to my first cousins house NW of Charlotte in the mountains. When they took her home 2 days ago the normal 6 hour drive was 12 hours navigating all the road closures. Her house was built in 1955 as most of the one story beach bungalows in her neighborhood were built between late 1954 to 1959. Hurricane Hazel did a bit of urban renewal there in October 1954 with a 17' storm surge. I thought for sure this was the one that would do it again and luckily she just lost a tree in her yard ... no damage to the house except for a little water in the garage. A couple years ago we had to spend about $40 K to repair flood damage that caused the foundation to settle into the sand bar that is Myrtle Beach. Luckily for her the storm track turned and went north of Wilmington. For others in the family up there not so lucky and a few around the Cape Fear River region it will be months till they can return their lives to normal.

  8. You should.. I mean what's the worst that could happen.. you could kiss a rock doing 20 MPH or so... but usually the cold water keeps the bleeding down Scars are cool..... It improves some peoples looks

    I have a VW TDI Bugly. I filled it up at Costco in Woodinville this week for $3.22 a gallon for the diesel. I usually get around 500 miles out of a tank with my usual commute although I have driven to Spokane and back on a single tank. I kept my lead foot out of the pedal and it gave me 62MPG on I-90 there and back. I am good with that little car.. Bugly has been a great money saver since I bought it used in 2007.
  10. Just use the rounds( I have several PC's and Papillion) for Summer Water Jumps.... DUUUDE.. BIG KERPLOOCH SPLASH even in the brisk summer water temperatures of a crystal clear Montana Lake ( At Lost Prairie) beat the hell out of a BIG THUD on Terra Way Too FIRMA any day!!!!
  11. I think so but definitely will not do a thing about practicing speed skydiving..
  12. I always went to a monster track and gradually spread arms away from my side and spread the legs out more and more.... But what would I know The two Pro-Tracks though in a full face was far more important so you actually knew which elevation you were passing thru... Missing the first alarm in an open face is not a good thing when the hard deck alarm goes off... Deployment can be a wee bit rough on equipment and body while the dytter is screaming at you.
  13. The diving off Key West proper is rather mediocre. However, if you're an advanced diver the Vandenburg has options. It goes down to 140 but the top structure is reachable by regular rec divers. Marathon and Key Largo has preserves but I haven't seen those myself. The reefs up north end like Pennecamp although a preserve tend to get crowded. I prefer the reefs southwest of Marathon. The Sombrero reef is good but the patch reefs inside of that are great. And if wrecks are your thing Check out the Thunderbolt.
  14. Age 69... bummer.
  15. Indeed that was what I was after go as many places I could and experience as many people as I could. I am avoiding DZ's at this point ... that helps remove the temptation to do stupid shit.
  16. Yeah but there is NO place like GCSPC and THE BOSS
  17. My IQ will jump, and will maybe stop loosing teeth!!!! LOL I grew up in Nebraska, so I know how to drive in snow, ice, etc.... I have a Jeep now, so I'll head to the drifts!!!! Cloudy sky's didn't bother me too much when I lived in Seattle... I was stationed at Wright Patt AFB OH after being stationed at Homestead AFB in FL. Do get over to Greene County SPC.... in Xenia.. in the SUMMER... that winter jumping at way below zero crap sucked....
  18. I drop in once in a while..... but on other platforms I have all the nutters blocked there starting with those who used to send me hateful messages here. Keeps my failing heart far healthier .
