    Vasectomy discussion. I just had one, and the 6 month buildup and discussion with various dudes before the appointment was very cringe-worthy.
    By the way, it was nothing. And I'm almost finished the 12 week post-op period before I am declared officially inert. Lock up your wimmens and livestock!

    At least you got some serious rubber poundage for your money.

    The local Indian motorcycle dealership wants about $1050 for a pair of skinny-ass OEM Dunlops mounted on my Chief.

    Members who use the word "blooze" in fora, then go out ( but more likely 'in') and play the same!

    Dang .....

    I agree with the O.P. A couple of years ago I had to get "scoped". (They didn't find anything, thankfully.)
    They give you a local and stick a camera in. I had to lay back, close my eyes and concentrate on breathing to stop from hyperventilating or passing out.
    I sometimes bend in two just thinking about it.

    In a different way, I cringe at the sight of harmoni... I mean "harp" players. The ones who wear the bandoleer with one for every key. Usually a guy who wears one of those hats. Also and when he sings, yells out to emphasize parts cuz he feels it and MEANS IT. Also adds a few "huh" in that Eddie Murphy/James Brown way.
    I have harmonicas but haven't touched them for years because I cringe thinking about these guys.

    People who use the "F-bomb" as punctuation, or to modify each noun in a sentence. If you sound pissed all the time how will we know when you really are?

    Chat speak You and/ or your family have spent tens of thousands of dollars to educate you, what exactly are you trying to prove?

    "Professionals" who discuss what should be privileged information in public via cell phone...

    Public smoking Mind if I fart? I enjoy a occasional cigar or pipe but in the privacy of my own home or a smoke shop.

    Falling down drunk, especially if you are well beyond traditional undergraduate age, it was stupid then, it is beyond the pale now.

    Men in convertibles..they make sun roofs for a reason. Steve McQueen, Paul Newman & George Peppard as Banacek could pull this off, check the mirror, you are not them.

    As one who was recently scoped I am in full sympathy with the previous posts. Cringe - I could have cried.
    Another pet peeve is the loss of 'ly' as in "you did brilliant" for example, rather than brilliantly.

    When someone says "nucular", instead of "nuclear".

    Fellas, I don't know what I'm going to do?
    I already drink, fish, shoot guns and play guitar too loud.

    I don't always drive a convertible, but when I do, I don't give a f*** about what you think I look like. :lol:

    Judging from what I see, that is a common occurrence;and you should have modified "convertible" & "do" at a minimum.. probably "look" also.
