    Default Marty!!! You Mustn't Tell Me About The Future!!!!

    Actually this thread is the Top Ten things I've learned since posting here in the Forums.

    10. Don't smacktalk Canadians.

    9. Don't ever share encounters with stop signs, keep them quiet.

    8. People named Cletus and LARRY can make your blood pressure rise.

    7. Gonzo is da man.....LadyCapn is da woman and Steamer is da Oprah.

    6. I use ".........." a lot.

    5. George Wendt is a walking library.

    4. Some cadets should follow the old saying, "Children should be seen and not heard."

    3. Lizards and blenders are a bad mix....no..wait...I learned that in college....nevermind.

    2. Guinness, leather and crust never go out of style.

    1. The WebTeam is more than kind for not booting me for my ever-so-suggestive thread titles!


    WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!................. ..


    I often wonder if I posted in the other forums, what the reaction would be.

    "Oh crap, he's posting in our forum now." "Yeah Sparky, there goes the neighborhood."

    , Yep Yep Yep. Well said Stayback. Especially No's 2, 9 and 10. Keep the faith and the humour flowing!! Oh wait, maybe that should be changed to "keep the guiness and the humour flowing"...?

    The more Guinness flows, the humorous things will follow. Maybe it's just that things become more profoundly humorous.

    Steamer, I think Stayback's fixation with Oprah came about the same time as his "chance encounter" with his Personal Stop Sign. Things like that can sometimes have a prophetic affect on a person.

    And Stayback, regarding Lesson #3. I was going to "StayBack" on that one. It brought way toooooo much for the imagination..... blenders and lizards.... mmmmmmmmm gooddddd (Ooooppps that's my army training showing itself again - sorry folks.)

    Sort of sounds like a new "Aliens" movie.

    12. People that say "Accident" actually mean the event was a monumental stuff up from start to finish.

    Steamer may not say a lot of words, But thems good ones when he does.

    Why StayBack, I am thrilled to carry the distinction of "Da Woman".

    Just let us know when you wish to fulfill your obligations in order to become an honourary Canadian. When you get tired of all the rain after visiting those up in BC, come on down to the fair weather of lovely Ontario.

    #15. If Kiwi can add a post chances are he will either include a story about sheep, or

    #16. He will tell you he has something to say, but leave it at that.... and not tell anyone what it is.

    Thanks Kiwi, I got a good chuckle out of your post in "Loosely Related..."

    To expound on Easy's #11:

    11 (b): If you post a response that makes you look like an idiot, someone (or several someones) will read it and respond before you can change it. They will further remember it and bring it up later.

    Perhaps we should add...

    11 (c): Don't try to make good points or get into heated discussions while consuming adult beverages. One, it's hard to type with one hand (and the voice reconition thingy doesn't work well with the alcohol-induced slur) and two, you will post something stupid...which leads us back to 11 (a) and (b).

    Just to expand on Ladycapn's comments. To get from B.C. to Ontario you have to travel through the best part of North America (Alberta).

    Man-o-fire, the nicest part about Alberta are those cowboys in tight jeans and cowboy boots.....

    #17. No matter you best intentioned or heart felt response, sometimes it just doesn't come out the way you intended it to.
