I always thought that you want me for yourself, I'm the ring you're gollum. Learn how to share.

Can you fucking imagine what the insides of the clubhouse would look like if we all met in meat space every day?

Fuck, hazmat would say fuckit and just cover it over with tons of concrete.

It might be worth doing...
...if we could build it on billetman's property, no?

why... should we be scared of new members or lurkers...?
They can still get a name and surf...

Why should we write and post pics and personal thoughts, to the masses? 2 mins to sign up and lurk... How bad do you want it?

The fun here is about what's already made...

This is named after a defunct motorcycle..,

Hold on as much as you want...

The site is at peak membership.

That's for sure. Anyone who doesn't know the history here and the inside jokes absolutely would come away with the wrong impression, and not in a good way.
That would be their problem and loss.
This experiment has the same issue of all human communications.
It's the most difficult thing we try to do effectively...
...getting our point across or just learning what our own point really is.

That depends on who the reader is, and what power they might potentially wield over the writer.
Yes, you are correct in that.

If such people aren't of high moral character and will not get clarification on something posted on line so they understand the context intended...
...they weren't worth being under in an employment situation to begin with.

We do all have to hold ourselves accountable and make our best attempts to be clear in what we say and intend...
...unless we are just screwing around, joking and such.

If that can't be acknowledged then we're fucked no matter what is posted.

A broad sweep of the hand not the least bit rooted in the realities of corporate America.

Screwing around, joking and such... that's pretty much what we do here, every day.

All I can do is try to hold myself to a higher standard.

I cannot force others to do the same or change their minds about how they choose to live.

Personally, I don't rat race...

...it was bad for my soul.

Even if it paid all the money.

Playing the hand I was dealt as best I can.
A couple of good cards and the rest are shit.
I don't blame anyone else for where I am...
...unless they kill me to death, then I'll blame the fuck out of them.


Joking and fucking around, all we do?
It's the little weight on the pressure cooker letting some steam escape.

Some deep and touching exchanges happen here too and I feel lucky to have the group around me.

It helps me balance life very well.
That and the dopamine hits are great!

Nobody said that. Check your temperature!
"Screwing around, joking and such...is pretty much all we do."

I did pare it down some but, yes, you're right.

I was just pointing out that it's far more than just that.

At least it is to me...


I'm about to head out to care for an elderly patient.
Think kind thoughts for us all. :ducmanic:

Privacy is just a crazy illusion anyway.

We've always left the door open and I'm not too keen on seeing it closed.

That said, if someone wants to put it up for a vote . . .
I say we get another year or two under the belt if we add no more than 10 contributing members, then it's a discussion and vote worth having.
