I should thank the fella that had the first set made. He forged new territory that I woulda been a bit timid to try.

(He posted about them on that other forum. The one that's far better behaved than this rowdy bunch of yahoos. :)

Well I can only blame you for that.

You could at least come on over and get banned once or twice. Liven up the place a bit.

Do your job.

It wouldn't take much. I showed up once without a jacket and tie and the room got very quiet.

No way!

R3B/Rema shows up there all the time, and the best he's ever dressed is in greasy coveralls, looking and smelling like he hasn't bathed in a year or so...

And they let him in. Hell, he hasn't even been banned there yet, and he doesn't even know which fork to use!

Dallara







p.s. maybe it's a Belgium thing... he likes to eat those little paper dolls of his, too.

Hmmmmm... I dunno'.

There's certainly some sober, maybe even somber, meeting rooms and alcoves over there, but some parts of the joint can get pretty rowdy.

Search out just about any thread with "Roy" in it... You'll see what I mean.
