    I've never seen a honeybee in a commercial or corporate bathroom, so I'm doubtful they will see a 75% market shift of the product like humans did.

    Bees never use commercial toilet paper. Too rough, and it snags their stingers. I think most bees work from home anyway, so when the hoarders start hoarding they'll get it all.

    That would be a great thread.

    Thanks for the feedback. We actually still have the functionality, where you can track custom streams of information. With the new system you're able to create a custom feed or use a generic feed such as content you posted or posted in. For the latter you can go here: https://www.dropzone.com/discover/content-started/ (It can be accessed under Activity on the menu under "more")

    On that page you can select exactly what you want to see in the feed, by default it will show you all content that you've participated in. You can then also refine it to only show items you haven't seen yet, change the period of time you want to see and how you want it sorted.

    Perhaps we should change the location of these features, because they were intended to be used as a core part of tracking items. But we have the activity area a bit hidden... There's a lot one can use the activity streams for in refining specific data.

    Thanks, I'll give it a spin.

     


  4. With the old site I could see a list of topics to which I made a comment ..most recent activity to oldest.  Not topics I started and not a list of my posts, both of which are accessible now.  I referred to that list often and sometimes I made a random comment in an interesting topic just so it would appear in that list.  It was fairly easy to search for, and find, what I was looking for.  Don't know if that would be useful enough to anyone else.  Also, wolfriverjoe's suggestion about referring to post numbers was useful, as was showing the quotes and to whom within a thread that someone was responding.  That made following a thread more coherent. Oh, and the thing about the older pics/attachments, too.


  5. I begged Mike to let me do a couple of intentional cutaways when he was testing the Dolphin at Zhills.  He said I didn't have enough experience to be a test jumper. Looking back, he was probably right.  Always a great guy.  Blue Skies, Mike. :(

  6. Sorry if this is recycled here ......

     

    A guy was driving around the back woods of Tennessee and he saw a sign in
    front of a broken down shanty-style house: "Talking Dog for Sale."

    He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the
    backyard.

    The guy goes into the back yard and sees a nice looking Beagle sitting
    there.  "You talk?" he asks.

    "Yep," the Beagle replies.

    After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says "So,
    what's your story?"

    The Beagle looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I
    was pretty young.  I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA and
    they had me sworn into the best branch of the armed services...the United
    States Air Force.

    In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in
    rooms with spies and world leaders; because no one figured a dog would be
    eavesdropping.  I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years
    running, but the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't
    getting any younger.  So, I decided to settle down.

    I retired from the USAF (8 dog years is 56 Corps years) and signed up for
    a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near
    suspicious characters and listening in.  I uncovered some incredible
    dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.  I got married, had a mess of
    puppies, and now I'm just retired."

    The guy is amazed.  He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for
    the dog.

    "Ten dollars," the guy says.

    "Ten dollars?  This dog is amazing!  Why on earth are you selling him so
    cheap?"
     
    "Because he's such a bullshitter ... He never did any of that shit.  He
    was in the Navy!"

    Scientists analysing the scat of leopard seals have come across an unexpected discovery – a USB stick full of photos & still in working order!

    Scroll down through the first dozen comments, for the best part.:D

     

    Maybe, if they further analyze the seal poop for any stray DNA, they could identify the owner's next of kin.


  8. I liked the former feature that had all the threads in which I had a comment listed in order of most recent activity (by anyone).  Sometimes, I posted in a thread just so it would appear in that list. Easy to scroll through the topics and find what I was looking for.  I actually used that a lot.  I do see the "see my activity" button under my profile, but that's not the same.

    Exciting, isn't it? Everything going to slow motion, the windshield looks like a video game. When I wound up upside down and was crawling out, the dirt smell reminded of high school football for some reason. :P



    Don't you know it! I flipped a 1969 Chevy Kingswood station wagon. Hydroplaned on a long curve in a driving rain. I negotiated the car back onto the roadway but it kept drifting across the lanes into the median. The car turned sideways and slid for a bit until the left side tires "caught" the dirt and it flipped, landing back on its wheels. The windshield shattered in slow motion as I watched it shatter across from the top, right side toward the driver side. Never forget it. I ended up with a large, rolled up tent on my shoulder wedged between me and the window. Never wore a seat belt before that day (1975). Never willingly rode in a car without one since. Same thing when I flipped a race boat. Happened in an instant but seemed like slow motion while it was happening.

    Glad you're OK, Keith. You ARE OK, aren't you?

  10. After finishing his sermon, the preacher announced that a member of the congregation would play the piccolo for everyone. After the piccolo player played for a few minutes, someone yelled out, "The piccolo player's a motherfucker!". The preacher jumped up and said, "Stop the music! ..Will the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker please stand up!" No one stands. After a few seconds he says, "Will the person who is sitting next to the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker please stand up!" Again, no one stands. Then the preacher says, "Will the person who is sitting next to the person who is sitting next to the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker please stand up!" Again, no joy. Finally, a fellow stands. "Now we're getting somewhere!" says the preacher. "Are you the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker?". "No, I'm not" says the fellow. "Are you the person who is sitting next to the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker?". "Nope!" was the answer. "Then are you the person who is sitting next to the person who is sitting next to the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker?" "Un-uh!". "Then WTF are you standing for?", asked the preacher in frustration. "Well, I'm not the person who called the piccolo player a motherfucker, or the person sitting next to him, or the person sitting next to him. What I want to know is who called that motherfucker a piccolo player!"

  11. Revival was going great and the tent was rocking. Members of congregation were canvassing the neighborhood bringing in new souls as fast as they could go. Even the local hooker was talked into coming inside. A bit later a fellow was leaving a nearby bar and stumbled by the tent. He was brought inside and was given a seat in one of the folding chairs. As the revival reached a fever pitch, the hooker stood up, threw her hands into the air and cried, "Yesterday I was in the clutches of the Devil, but tonight I'm in the arms of the Lord !!" The drunk jumped up and yelled, "So, what are you doing tomorrow !?"

    ******the fake part seems lame, but also completely understandable.



    It's a Disney movie, for chrissakes! OTOH, they could just have everyone dress like Donald Duck or Winnie the Pooh and no one would even notice.

    That does remind me of the another famous movie / comic question, "how do dr. banner's pants stay on when he increases in size by 200% and turns into the hulk?" His shirt shreds to pieces, but those pants must be really stretchy.

    Well, they did have to keep it family-friendly. Same reason you never saw Jeannie's belly button ...or Ginger's or Maryann's for that matter. Annette, too.
