lurker: sportsman's guide. thanks, maybe they sell the rifle powder i need. lowes won't have it. Jun 2, 2020 12:26:49 GMT -7

tomcat65: Haha! According to my view of this site, it's owned by Lowes and The Sportsman's Guide. Why is my ad blocker not working? Jun 2, 2020 5:49:03 GMT -7

Admin Czar: Hope you sign up Skamper! May 31, 2020 18:39:02 GMT -7
Admin Czar: No it's not. The ads you see are driven by cookies in your browsing history & advertiser preference. ProBoards gets the ad money. Site "owners" get nothing & have no control. May 31, 2020 18:38:10 GMT -7
skamper: is this site owned by bikesdirect.com? Their ad is at the top of ur page where a site banner is normally found. May 31, 2020 11:52:36 GMT -7
desertbikes: If there's something beyond worm food, it's bigger than our meager minds can comprehend. Dr. Chumley in Harvey: "Fly specks, fly specks! I've been spending my life among fly specks while miracles have been leaning on lampposts at 18th and Fairfax!" May 29, 2020 19:58:40 GMT -7
lurker: i am an atheist. always been one. whole notion is silly. i won't know for sure until i die, and only if i'm wrong, because if i'm right i won't be knowing or doing much of anything (i'd say decomposing, but the plan is cremation) we'll see. or we won't. May 28, 2020 12:26:27 GMT -7 *
desertbikes: Philosophers & physicists are rarely right, but never in doubt. May 28, 2020 7:49:18 GMT -7
desertbikes: And for the record, Richard Dawkins is an arrogant prick too. He's part of the in-your-face atheist crowd whose religion IS literally, Atheism. Again, it take a huge amount of faith to presume you have all the answers. May 28, 2020 7:48:04 GMT -7
desertbikes: I've got nothing against religion. How some sects of the major 3 faiths conduct themselves is another story. The bottom line tho, religion is faith, & you can't reason with faith. If God were proven, faith wouldn't be required. Poof! No more religion O_o May 24, 2020 12:05:37 GMT -7 *
lurker: DB, you want to start a religion thread i'll be right there but i suspect we'd just agree and that would be boring. May 24, 2020 9:39:58 GMT -7
desertbikes: Yeah, misplaced anger aside, the devout Christians, while well-meaning, became the most annoying. Almost like they're picking that time to proselytize and know better than you what's beyond death. Truth? Life's a demolition derby. Wear a frickin helmet. May 24, 2020 7:03:45 GMT -7
desertbikes: Thanks for the words guys. I don't say much to the ones left behind. Everything sounds like platitudes. A few days after my dad died, I wanted to throttle the next person that said, "I'm sorry for your loss" or, "they're in a better place now". May 24, 2020 6:53:00 GMT -7 *
lurker: so sorry. May 23, 2020 11:16:33 GMT -7
tomcat65: Those whose children are terminally ill, pay a huge price for our lessons in the value of life. For some, it's more than they can bear. In the end, the lesson changes. Favor is also not fair. God's gonna God, People gonna be human. Blessings on your family May 23, 2020 7:09:58 GMT -7
desertbikes: The cousin died. At least she's not in pain anymore. A hospice always says how the person died peacefully. What else would one expect when the patient is pumped full of adivan & morphine. May 22, 2020 14:50:10 GMT -7
lurker: there's a lot of death going around lately. yes, some of it is we're getting older, and the people we know are getting older too. lost two acquaintances myself in the last week or so. it seems especially unfair when it takes children. May 20, 2020 12:02:22 GMT -7
