Maybe you have your definitions backward. Friends don’t care if you disagree with them or think they have bad taste or forget their names, although of course they have to get something from the relationship.

Your theory fails in one respect, that being the definition of a “friend”. A “real” friend knows me and my flaws and therefore doesn’t take offense easily if my Fox Paw (or faux pas…never understood french) fits within my profile. The “sorta” friends are really only acquaintences. My guess is that most people only have 1-3 of the former.

A friend is someone who would bail you out of jail.

A REAL FRIEND would have been sitting next to you in the cell saying “DAMN! I cant believe we almost got away with that!”

DKV…would I die for a real friend? The answer is obviously yes…that’s why I limit the number. I have a lot of pretty stupid acquaintences.

Teejk, help me up. Now that was funny.

COTL, there are only two reasons a person would not answer another person’s question especially when they are the one who started the conversation…1. Shyness, 2. Inability to articulate. Do you choose 1 or 2?

I’ve got a couple questions:
Bill White, why do you feel it your duty to disturb a completely fine thread thinking everyone should be woodworking and not doing what they are doing?
COTL, why do you feel a need to provide sly questions? What exactly does it do for you? Either tell me what you think about me or join in with the jokes. Either way don’t try sly. It doesn’t work for you.

Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”

Robert Heinlein is my favorite scifi author; fantasitc character development. A sad literary day when he died years ago. He also resided in SriLanka because of the lax laws for pedophilia. He was a regular renter of small boys. Most of his books include incest. Just a point of interest.

Yes, and I remember reading a book of his years ago that put forth the argument quite strongly, quite elegantly, seductively even. I was convinced!

Enemies….enemies….?? Don’t have any I don’t think? Well…except for the one fella that has me blocked. Some crazy religious Monk type dude…who makes stuff out of sticks and branches? Never spoken a word to the guy? But all said and done, I really don’t give a shit why.
There’s no shortage of people on this board(most often in the off topic section) who are complete dickheads of all descriptions. But…whatever. It takes all types.
The thing I find most …’intriguing’? and keeps me coming back to rubber neck some of the threads, aren’t the dick head button pushers, but the ones who allow their ‘buttons’ to be pushed! Over and over and over….they beg for punishment. Buttons get pushed, and they run around squawking and flapping their wings…every effin’ time.
Get a grip and realize whats happening! LOL! Button pushers thrive on satisfaction….no satisfaction….no button pushing.
Similar are the Uhhmmm…’types’(not exactly the descriptive term I was thinking off) that come into the off topic section and bitch and complain about the topics and the dickheads involved. Pull your head outta your….that mouse in your hand ain’t gonna take you anywhere you don’t tell it to! When you sit down to watch a movie, and discover in the first ten minutes that it’s a stupid movie, do you sit there for three hours and bitch, then call Twentieth Century Fox and bitch at them? Or do you simply…..turn it off?

Jimc
It also baffles me a bit why Dan often pulls old threads up and posts repetitive and quite often stupid pictures that have nothing to do with the thread topic? Crazier than a shithouse rat maybe? Maybe…but then again…I don’t give a crap. Whatever puts a smile on yer face.
Dan, don’t be offended, or refreshed with my opinion. Cause I really don’t give a rats ass, and I hope you don’t either.
Pardon the language….I swear like a drunken sailor and was actually restraining myself.

Tony: Your (restrained) language might still be a little rough around the edges, but I agree 100%. You’ve got the push-ers and the push-ees, and they just keep playing their respective roles over and over. It does make for good rubbernecking, though.

@Tony “Similar are the Uhhmmm…’types’(not exactly the descriptive term I was thinking off) that come into the off topic section and bitch and complain about the topics and the dickheads involved.”

Reminds me once when we lived in Georgia some folks moved to the area from another state. They had never lived in that town before but thought it would be a nice place to retire. They got a real good deal on a house without bothering to find out that it was 2 miles away from the end of the airport runway! Within 2 or 3 months of moving in, they were on the local TV news with the “Investigative Reporter” complaining about the noise!

First they complained to anyone who would listen. Then they tried to get all the surrounding neighborhoods to sign a petition to have the airport closed.

When THAT didnt work, they spent five years trying to get the city council to make the airport restrict landings and takeoffs to be ONLY during business hours (9am to 6pm). Obviously that never happend and when they sold their retirement house, they lost their ass.

So yeah I concurr with you Tony.
If you click on a link and dont like what you see, CLICK BACK OFF THE LINK! Dont stay and complain about what you’re seeing. The folks before you already KNEW what was going on and it’s their CHOICE to stay.
