    And now for something completely different.....

    I was driving around today, looking for something to keep myself out of trouble (all the golf courses are flooded) and I saw this sign at the local Rec center.

    Now, I already have enough water survival training to escape the Titanic. I don't know what TKD is, but the ballroom wrestling sounded interesting.

    Tried to sign up.

    They just looked at me like I was........"special".

    That sign was the first pic I just dragged off my computer. Works prey well.

    Is it just me or can everyone else still see the pics in my threads? I hope those criminals didn't charge me $400 without telling me!

    Well that would go right along with the ballroom wrestling. Maybe I should take that first.

    Classical pics.

    Remember, this was a beater that came out of a Texas attic.

    Nice!

    Clearly I need to be looking around in attics more for something to put some sweat equity into. Only people will call the police.

    You ARE special Nosmo--to us, anyway. :cool:

    Too bad you did such a nice job on rescuing and rehabbing that guitar.
    I can see use for an old beater guitar in ballroom MMA/Wrestling. Like instead of a folding chair, you smash your partner in the chops with an old guitar. :eek: Then do-si-do wahh, haa. . .

    Being in Atlanta, I have some inside skinny on Equifax (our hometown heroes), they've teamed up with Photobucket to offer some unique services not available anywhere else. You pay Photobucket their $400, and get your secret password to release your photos, but it won't matter, because Equifax already leaked your secret password and a guy in Siberia now controls your photos. Pretty unique, huh?

    Hey man, I'd be down for checking out that ballroom wrestling myself, no shame.
    Ladies in gowns, blokes in tuxes having it on it in the mat? Yes! Put some beer on that and you'd really have something.

    Yeah Rick, it makes you wonder what ever happened to integrity.


    Beer goes with everything!

    Integrity is nothing in the presence of anarchical capitalism! Too hard to make money the old way. Man I sound like a Millennial.....

    I like capitalism. I love the free market. Keeps things reasonably priced.


    But here's the problem, capitalism without a moral base is pure greed.

    Or put another way, free markets provide the most economically unfettered expression of a societies underlying character. Ouch. :)
