It’s all fun and games DKV, until you start messing with Apple. This is serious business and not to be mocked! :)

Nwbusa, I’m not mocking…I’m laughing hard. But then, maybe I am mocking just a teeny bit.

Apple is down 10% just today ~$460.00/share. Not too long ago it hit an all time high of ~$700.00/per share. Today it has lost $50 billion in market capitalization. Soon it will loose it’s “most valuable US company status” if the declines continues. A group of investors are selling shares because the analysts said the company did not sell enough devices (they sold 48 million ipads/iphones).

Company philosophy is to focus on products, not profits.

Maybe the conspiracy theorists are correct.

Where do I get my daily laughs? The financial blogs.

DISCLAIMER: I don’t own any Apple Products or stocks. I do however love their pie.

Here’s something else that makes me chuckle. I was just reading a blog (doesn’t matter the subject) and was following a squabble between to readers. One reader wrote to the other reader “F—k you!” Sooooo, I started thinking which I am wont to do on occasion if a person writes “F—k you!” on a blog is it any different than writing “Fuck you!”? If vulgarity can get you kicked off a site would both people get the boot or just the one that didn’t use spaces? If my substitute word for the “F” word is “Frat” and I say “Frat you!” can I then get kicked off the site? Is there any difference between the three writers if all three have the same communication intent?

It depends on the subject of the argument.

Ice hockey:
Forecheck you!

Mining:

The Irish have this covered. Feck is not as bad as fuck and can be used in the same context except for fuck in the vulgar term for sex.

Curiously, this is what happens on Lumberjocks if you try to curse at someone substituting asterii for the letter u.

The example below is used purely for illustrative purposes:

“If you use metal drawer slides on a piece of furniture you must be a fcking philistine, and obviously don’t give a sht about your work”.

Perhaps, DKV, as you have a special relationship with Martin, you could bring this to his attention.

oh man DKV…you never seen “A Christmas Story”? I think Ralphie used that word when the lug-nuts flew into the air and all heck broke loose (my mom preferred a brand of soap known as Sweetheart…kinda ironic when I think about it).

For those so easily offended in the corner bar, I’ll add that my use of the term lug-nuts refers to fasteners used to hold a tire…nothing more.

Lol Bronze, were you here for the famous ‘do you use metal or wooden drawer slides in your furniture’ thread?

I just had a good laugh. I went to comment on Jonathon’s post concerning dangerous woodworking tasks and found that I was blocked. The funny part is for the life of me I can’t figure out why. What have I ever said that would cause someone to block me? Must be a mistake. Tried to PM him to let him know about his mistake but found that I can’t. Oh well…
Anyway, what I was going to say on his thread is the most dangerous task no matter how simple or hard is determined by the amount of day dreaming that is going on during the task. Tell him I said hi…

Metal drawer slides … that is just heresy!
For those that only use wooden slides but for me I use whatever suits the application!

The first thing I read in the morning is the funnies and they help set the tone for the day. I then read the business section which is always funny! Then the sport section and finally the front page for the political antics and editorials.

I am not dissin’, anybody. All I am saying is that this site cracks me up with both intelligence and shear intollerance. Have you read the shit fest going on in the Saw-Stop thread? Not for the weak. Some guys will be tossed by the end of the day, that is for sure.

It,s the dude and Jorge, but I get the feeling that the dudster is in the cornerbar chilling out, and it was not his thread, because I can’t find the thread anymore. HMike was very calm and relaxed throughout.
It was very funny, sadly.
