genericmember: It's a chore to read these days. Fake news brought fake words. Twitter-speek has become mainstream. Punctuation, spelling & grammar are optional. Dec 13, 2019 7:57:36 GMT -7
lurker: WM banner ad at the top of the page for lemon-scented liquid plumber: "destORy the clogs!". i didn't know clogs had a story. spelling, it seems, is becoming a lost art. or proofreading. or both. Dec 13, 2019 3:09:36 GMT -7
lurker: found the model firearms, sorta. goatguns.com/ Dec 11, 2019 11:24:02 GMT -7
lurker: it has its up and down sides. you think you see parallels everywhere you look in current events, and it's never a good one. and sometimes you find yourself taking an unpopular position on an issue, all because you know who hadrian or hannibal was. Dec 8, 2019 19:13:05 GMT -7 *
desertbikes: That's good. Hope their kids & kid's kids pass it on. It's nearly optional after 7th or 8th grade these days. I didn't begin to learn solid history until I was in my 30s. I always thought that was a terrible shame. Dec 8, 2019 18:29:10 GMT -7
lurker: running as i do with a bunch of history geeks, it's pretty much all i've heard about on social media today. Dec 7, 2019 18:15:01 GMT -7
desertbikes: Pearl Harbor day. That fact might get a 10 second mention on the news, but only if there's an airshow around. Dec 7, 2019 8:50:21 GMT -7
lurker: GOBBLE, GOBBLE! Nov 28, 2019 8:59:49 GMT -7
genericmember: And to you, DG Nov 28, 2019 7:56:35 GMT -7
desertbikes: Happy Thanksgiving you turkeys. All that white warlord, manifest destiny protesting aside, we're doing the traditional T-giving steaks & desert 4x4 day trip. Although the trip looks like it will be postponed due to rain. Nov 27, 2019 9:25:53 GMT -7

desertbikes: I though you meant, Errorrr as in 601 601 601 601. Ive had cats that were errors tho. Nov 15, 2019 18:52:35 GMT -7
lurker: errrrrrrrrrr dam cat. this cat.. he's the friendliest, most affectionate cat i've ever had, but if i'm typing something, he thinks he needs pets. Nov 13, 2019 7:39:49 GMT -7 *
