Justifiably so, however.

:oops:

Sorry dodecahedron. How many minutes in the penalty box for CowboySlim and me?

Hmm.............. is that what happened to my post?

It was purged?

I must have missed my summons or supoena, and then my day in court?

How can I modify my wayward ways and inappropriate behavior if I have not been informed of the exact nature of my transgressions? :o

No, you didn't miss anything. Slim and I made a couple of joking posts in the FAQ section, which we really should not have done. Ian then deleted them to clean it up and make sure the FAQ section is just for FAQs. Nothing to see here. 8)

Really? I initially assumed it was dodecahedron since it was his thread we hijacked. Hence my first post in this thread. But when I read your first post in this thread I thought you were covertly taking responsibility for the cleanup:

Now I know what I did wrong. I responded to Ian's post about CES never noticing that it was in the FAQ forbidden zone.....some stuff about photos of the Booth Babes.

Then I went on how they wouldn't let me in the CES when I insisted on wearing a propeller on my AFDB and it was necessary for me to wear my AFDB with all the EMI and electronic radiation in there.

I'm not wearing my AFBD now as I have this room at home completely lined with lead foil which is grounded to a 2" diameter 40' long copper rod driven that deep into the ground.

yeah it was me.

FAQ Forum Guidelines say:
The FAQ forum is meant for FAQs, obviously.
So please, do not post questions here or requests for assistance. These should be posted in the relevant forum. Any irrelevant posts will be moved to other forums.


sorry about that, Slim and cfitz. i hadn't realized Slim had mistakenly posted it in the FAQ, since that FAQ is about posting pictures on the Forum, and Slims comments were about pictures ! of booth babes! LOL
ordinarily i just move such posts elsewhere, and obviously the logical place would've been in the Beer Garden CES topic. but i don't know of a way of merging posts into an existing thread.

Slim:
i clicked on the link hoping to see a picture demonstrating someone wearing an AFDB with a propellor on top, alas no such luck!

i commend you on your hard work protecting your room. if you drive that grounding rod just a bit further in you'll strike oil!

cfitz:
it is comforting to know that someone is watching the watcher!
(well, maybe not so comfortable, me being the watcher in this case :lol: )
i penalize you with 30 minutes in the penalty box. but as a reward i'll throw Jessica Simpson and Liv Tyler in the box with you. is 30 minutes enough?

More true than you may think Dode.

There are functioning oil wells within a mile of my house.
Striking oil would do me no good, however.
You see, when you buy a lot and house in this area,
you do not get mineral rights.
The oil companies have them.
They have the rights to slant drill under my house. :(

Now I'm confused. :-s Are you really trying to punish him? I can't even stand to watch Jessica Simpson on TV for more than 30 seconds, let alone 30 minutes! She may be foxy as all hell... but everytime she speaks I just want to... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

LOL i wasn't trying to punish him with Jessica Simpson.
(but i see your point - my wife watches that stuped Jessica Simpson & her husband show)
but in his case that might be...he's partial to brunettes.
couldn't think of a hot brunette at the moment i wrote that. Liv Tyler is a brunette though, no ?

Why, because she said that she does not eat Bufalo Wings because she does not eat Bufaloes, or because of the chicken of the sea?

OT, but that would be just like the Simpsons episode where Burns created Burns' Slant Drilling Company to slant drill under Springfield Elementary to get to the oil that was discovered under the school.

My thoughts exactly! Apparently I am being punished. :(

Quite true - I am partial to brunettes. And Liv Tyler is quite attractive. But she is also married, isn't she? So, again, apparently you are punishing me... :(

Whoa! Hey! Ouch, that hurts! What did I do to get on your bad side? :wink:

It could be worse, Slim. Out east the mineral rights under your house that someone else owns include coal. And while I don't think slant oil drilling has any effects on the property at ground level (other than loss of potential revenue), when they mine underneath you, your house can end up collapsing into a sink hole as the empty, abandoned mine shafts cave in below.

I know. I was just kidding with you too. That's why I added the "wink" smiley. But all the same, thank you for the reassurance.
