I don't get Madden either. That guy died in 1989 and I don't think he realized it.

Edit: HA! I posted before you on your own thread!

Len, You Are a God

Your thoughts and words ALWAYS send me thinking, even when we aren't on the same page. There were a few items on your list that I DO get...


...grits
...Merryl Streep
...hot tea


But otherwise, I would "ditto" your list. What else?

... the appeal of NBA basketball
... righteous (or any other kind of) indignation over flag burning or any other unpopular speech
... finding it funny to make humor at those who are different
... caring who other people love/screw/marry
... date rape (or having sex with anyone who isn't into it)
... telling a lie to impress
... dogfighting/cockfighting/bullfighting
... American Idol
... CSI/Law & Order/any variation thereof


That's all I can think of right now...

I forgot about dogfighting/cockfighting/bullfighting....
I actually enjoy Idol...once it gets to the final 20 or so......some of these kids actually listen to the criticism and get better,...plus I'd love to be able to sing.
Your comment about Law & Order......I agree 100%....can't believe I forgot that!

Good adds.

Hot Tea?????
Meryl Streep????:D

things i don't get (and i bet you all agree on the absurdity):
- i'm still NOT really, really wealthy.
- i'm not famous and adored by millions of people when deep inside, i'm a star.

it's absurd..

Len, you hit the foundation of all

my neuroses. I could go on for hours.

You want heartbreak, though? I'll give you heartbreak. Coming home from my first deployment, the carrier pulled into Perth for a few days of well-earned liberty. All I wanted, aside from a long shower in water not laden with jet fuel, was what Carl's Junior calls a $6 hamburger. You know...something big, juicy, loaded with gooey cheddar, maybe some bacon, lettuce, a slice of tomato, etc. My roommie and I walked until we found a suitable pub that advertised American-style burgers. We walked in. It seemed close enough. We ordered a couple pints of Matilda Bay, and set about looking through the menu until we found the "All American Burger." 16 oz, cheddar, jack, bacon, lettuce, tomato...pickels onion on a sesame bun.... You know the song. We salivated like Pavlov's dogs and ordered. Two more Matilda Bays and the burgers arrived. Some Heintz 57, a touch of spicy mustard, and then a big bite of my cheeseburger in para.....

WHAT THE EFFING CHRIST!!!!!

G_DD_MNED THING WAS MADE FROM GROUND LAMB.

Had it been up to me, the carrier would have weighed anchor, and we'd have dropped heavy ordnance on Oz that very day. Muther effers.

THAT bothers me to this day.

let cha in on a wee secret, my sequestered buddy. i've been meagerly sampling meat for a few weeks. i'd rather eat the bean burgers or skrimps or something. but yo, i never had the good east coast burgers, and it suxs. so we have a man-date to eat some big greasies and fries and carry our flasks in that moth*rf*cker and get kicked out. etc etc.

No, but I NEED to.

A friend just sent photos tonight of his new Weigel. I soiled myself.

Likewise, when Tom at GVH started the vintage parts section last month, I scored some last-gen NOS Campy DT shifters. I will now start mentally designing an entire bike around those.

14 months. Not bad. Humanity might still exist then, although if "they" win, you won't be allowed to ride it.
