So will there be an Oscar thread this year?

Note: I'll be travelling on Oscar night, but should be able to post comments the next day, when I'm back home.

I'll bet not

I don't really think the site owner gives a tin shit about this place.  Witness the poll on the homepage.  The amount of participants has also sunk way below critical mass. 

And among the few semi-regulars left, there may be one or two more like me that have better things to do than spend 3 hours watching a bunch of boring-ass speeches.  Okay, so maybe I don't have better things to do, but it's still highly unlikely I'll watch the Oscars.  Unless Ricky Gervais hosts the whole thing.  That would be cool.

Hey Coaster

You coming to LA anytime soon?

I went to Knotts Berry Farm last weekend.  Their roller coaster count is now 8, including two that have been built within the past three years.  And I think Magic Mountain has a new coaster opening later this year.  Wheeeee!



As a matter of fact, yes.

I'll be there in April or May for the unveling of my mother's headstone.  It's a Jewish thing which some atheists are forced to attend.  What a better way to spend the Saturday prior than riding roller coasters? 

I've lost your e-mail address.  I'll write you through Cranky's to reestablish contact, and we can hash out the details in the coming weeks. 

I also hear their fried chicken and berry pie is killer.

I have some prior commitments across various weekends in April and May, but hopefully we can connect...if not for a Saturday of Coaster riding then at least for a meal, or something.  It's been awhile.

Anyway, check your email, but don't get your hopes up.  I'm not going to send you my SSN or CC #s.



Well, since you all have time on your hands,

I propose that the five or six of you still here move to a warmer clime and join my navy. You will see and experience

  • exotic ports of call, including jungle, mountain, open ocean and beach environments.
  • swimming with rare marine species.
  • AK47 included.
  • air conditioning.

No God and country allegiance-swearing. No passport required.

The 30-metre fiberglass boat has room for a crew of six and is powered by two diesel engines and has an air-conditioned interior, Hurtado said. He said it can submerge up three metres deep and is equipped with a five-metre periscope.

I would have posted the original German link,

Question: does shore leave in your navy include all the submissive Thai hookers I can handle, as well as the subsequent STD testing?  If so, I'm in!  I'd swab HER deck anyday.



Sorry, HS, but Thai stick is not included in my cruise.

Although, if I added Bangkok, I'm sure you'd need a swabbing, and I don't mean the deck.

In any event, we only dock offshore in North and Central America. Swim fins optional.
