    So, how much has the price of gas gone up in your area after this ransomware attack?

    $2;69 - $284 gal; for shit gas 83 octane in Central Florida You want 93 octane? $3.45 a gallon. Gas prices on a peninsula that features the shittiest ports in the USA are necessarily gonna be pricey, as so much shit is brought in from Looziana and Texas via truckers and railroads. But if not...

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    Okay, I looked it up... There was no specific verbal formula that was used consistently. Instead, the balls were released at such times as when there was some verbal connection that came up in discussion that would trigger the balls to drop. Like, Mr. Moose might recite a limerick: Roses...

    And now, in the continuing story of how music has gone to the dogs...

    :p :p :p Well... IIRC, Ms. Kaye is pushing 90... :hmm: Could be that modern country is about all she can handle these days! :shock: --R :p

    And now, in the continuing story of how music has gone to the dogs...

    I dunno, really... Remember the Wrecking Crew? Those guys were on everything from the early Byrds albums to... well, to pretty much anything Phil Spector needed them to be on. And that could be rock, or soul, or country, or pop... just, whatever Spector was producing at a given moment in time...

    PSA: French Connection free on Amazon

    I watched it the other night... :thumb: In the scene where the assassin, Sal Boca, is clipped while trying to get away from Popeye Doyle, I was sitting there thinking of Dave... Yep! There's definitely something Popeye-like about Dave! :laugh2: --R :thumb:

    Time for a mundane thread...

    Sometimes you get a clogged commode that won't respond to mere plunging because there's a ginormous turd-- composed of an uncommonly dense and clay-like form of feces-- that is wedged in there and even an expert plunger-man might end up splashed by raw sewage while attempting to persuade the...

    The most unfriendly looking house I ever saw.

    I’ve been in extremely deep thought lately

    Strangers? You think it's only strangers who figure we're nuts? :rofl: You know who once had the best sig line on this site? It was MLP member @artis_xe, whose signature once informed us: "We're all here because we're not all there" :laugh2: --R :p

    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    :laugh2: The regulars in this thread have done an amazingly good job, I'd say! :applause: And just so everybody knows: I even felt that way about the posts that had to vanish. I didn't find any members turning what's really a legal issue into some sort of polemic in here, and actually...

    What’s the potential downfall?

    :laugh2: At this point it's just cats and smaller dogs, like chihuahuas. Many of us consider it to be sporting to use only a .410, though it's not as if anybody would really complain if somebody showed up with a 12 gauge... I mean, they *are* pests after all... :hmm: We'll keep y'all posted...

    Orianthi SJ-200 CS signature.

    Back in 2009, Orianthi Panagaris did an audition tape for Michael Jackson-- at Jackson's request-- which was recorded before a live audience at USC. She played some species of Gibson acoustic for that performance. If you don't want to hear her rambling introduction, skip to 2:11, which is when...

    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    LOL I am more inclined to shut individual posters down, than to shut down the thread. No penalties will be assessed today, however, though a few posts are going bye-bye... I do ask that all members be careful about that sort of thing. You have my thanks in advance. :thumb: But really...

    Lights in the Sky.

    :hmm: Near as I can tell, Jefferson Airplane wrote the very first "protest song" to complain about the accumulation of junk in orbit around the planet... it was recorded 51 years ago, but it sat around in a vault somewhere until it was finally released a year or two later. The song is called...

    How to identify Southern weed.

    In New Orleans they don't batter-fry their weed. Instead, it's blackened. --R
