  1. This got a lot of play on KSHE 95 (Real Rock Radio) in St. Louis. It was too long for commercial AM and I have never heard it on radio since around 1974.

    Did you ever wonder how human beings have survived for 200,000 years without the benevolent guidance of the enlightened good people? If we'd just do it Al Gore's way.

    Politics "Sore Loser Stacey" refuses to concede

    The hippie socialists lose nothing by their outrageous claims, thus, they make them, early and often and the biased media chants along. So, the new standard is: any African must be elected to an office. Unless it's Michigan. African women should just be given the office. Why make them campaign at all? It will obviously be racist. Unless it's Utah. No white men need apply.

    Global........cooling

    I attended a lecture by Paul R. Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, in 1969 at Mizzou. The hippies worshiped him. He posited that humans were doomed when the world population reached five billion. No food, no fresh water, no energy, we're all going to die. The world population at the time was around three billion. It was less of an academic lecture than a book tour. NB the population is almost eight billion today. Guess Mr. Ehrlich was wrong, but he sold a lot of books.

    Time Magazine and Newsweek predicted a coming ice age back in the mid-1970s. Gaia worshipers were going nuts. Ice age didn't happen. Gaia worshipers are still nuts. Time to burn some incense!

    What Car Did You...

    I rarely need to parallel park as well. It was a useful skill back in the olden days. Towns were laid out differently with all of the businesses along Main Street and few parking lots. Parallel parking is still the norm in the European cities I have visited. Given the manner in which I see folk park in parking lots, I imagine that parallel parking would totally flummox them to the point of insanity. Until there is an app for that;, then they'll be all right. NB I had two points deducted from my driver's road test because I didn't turn my wheels to the curb after executing perfect parallel parking. I was robbed!
  11. A cornerstone of a fascist, meaning the hippie socialist, agenda is to have the law and thus, police as moral and political rather than criminal arbiters. In the eyes of the hippie socialist, disloyalty to the state is a far worse offense than snatching an old lady's purse. We already see examples of thought crime on college campuses, why would we suppose that it will stay there? Welcome to progressive paradise.
  12. The same galoot that threw $2,000.00 worth of crack cocaine through my car window and it landed in the closed center console? That guy?
  13. They are the Kid of Huaco's pants. He leaves them everywhere. On a more serious note, when government fails to protect the decent and honest folk and promotes the interests of the worst society had to offer, the good, decent people will take their safety and prosperity into their own hands extra-legally. That rarely works out well, especially for the thug, thief, rapist class, but also for the innocent.

    Halibut tonight.

    There is something fishy about this entire thread. Seafood in Texas is simple. Take a cowsie or pigsie. Tie a rope around their feet. Chuck them into the Gulf. Haul them out, put them on the smoker. Serve with cornbread.

    Alien space probe?

    I understand that Jiffy creamy peanut butter can be used as a lubricant during probing. At least that what people tell me. I woudln't know from personal experience. Nope. Heard it. Didn't do it.

    We have a wide variety of ages here, but I suggest that we can divide the population into those that saw Blood on the Highway in Driver's Ed and those that that were deemed to sensitive and would have nightmares and watched a Captain Planet film instead.
  18. You meet the nicest people on a Honda. Do I detect the secret SuperAmerica logo hidden in all those tattoos? Do the stars at the corners of his eyes mean that he's Jewish?

    Computer Help Please

    crockett, I gave up buying Seagate drives, both server and work-station grade, years ago. It seemed I always had ten or so in the process of being returned for warranty replaced by so-called refurnished units. I have had much, much better service from Western Digital and Hitachi; almost flawless performance. I agree that the IBM ThinkPad was a quality product until it went to Lenova, and then it became a budget Walmart product. Sad to see, I have been a DELL customer, for server and consumer-grade products, for more than 30 years and probably will be until I die. They have never failed to satisfy and are worth what I pay for them.

    Aircraft Pic & Vid Thread

    The YAK-141. Yes, it's Russian. Neat aircraft. Lockheed used some YAK-141s as test beds for the development of the F-35.

    Beautiful Cars & Trucks

    I owned a 914 for many years and had the opportunity to drive many of the other roadster offerings of the time, including more than a few samples of the Fiero. We used to spend a lot of time at autocross and Steak n' Shake bemoaning what the Fiero could have been if Pontiac would just get their head out. It could have been very good. The X 1/9 was ... well, it was Italian. Your last remark is exactly why the Fiero was never a competent road automobile, rather it was an American manufacturer's idea of an everyman convertible suitable for commuters and young ladies. I agree about the Elise, probably the best roadster Britain ever made, far superior to the mundane MGBs and Spitfires of the time. I drove several Europas, some on the track, and I agree that it was a good idea badly realized, but dang would that thing go around corners.

    Beautiful Cars & Trucks

    I agree. It was an interesting car in an era when automobiles were trying to be interesting and failing. If I recall, the Cadillac Allante was contemporary and that was one ugly automobile. I also seem to remember that it was obsceely expensive for an American offering. American roadsters just weren't all that popular in the late 1980s. The Fiero was a poor copy of the X 1/9, 914 and various Italian and British roadsters that were cheaper and more fun.

    What Car Did You...

    1963 Pontiac Tempest in 1966. NB back then, driver's licenses had no photo, They were just a flimsy printed card. I had 1965 Plymouth Satellites for driver's education. The power brakes were so touchy you could be in a four-wheel lock-up just by breathing on them.
