    You should sing some before posting and stop the meek of the earth crap. One thing to comment - another thing to be a provocateur in the bad sense.

    Meanwhile enjoy:

    Good one up there rebel :)
    Thank goodness. Maybe now you'll stop following me around the forum quoting my posts trying to pick a fight. To the banana lasts!! :lol:
    Chay had some on hand but I believe it would normally be a special order. That is the soft square IIRC. Thanks

    HEY!!!!!

    In the interests of peace, love and an overall tingly feeling, please read this post!

    If there's one thing the Extremists have taught me over these past few years is that NOTHING unifies people like a COMMON ENEMY! Common causes don't even come close.

    This being the case, I have decided to bite the proverbial bullet. After viewing these, please feel free to let it all out & pile on. Please ignore me as I go into a corner and whimper softly, contemplating self immolation (anyone gotta match?)

    I am worried that we are witnessing an epic, digital meltdown of Charlie Sheen-like proportions.

    Isshn,

    When I saw the monks, I was put in mind of a story that I was told (perhaps apocryphal) many years ago--Somewhere in time and space, when a shoemaker had finished his apprenticeship, he had to pass a test to become a journeyman. He had to make a pair of "Pope's shoes" that were finer and lighter weight than his master could make.

    Kind of puts things in perspective.

    Bzzzt! Seven more years.

    Why worry? We all love a Sheen-esque meltdown, now don't we? ;)

    Sure, but it's the subject of this potential meltdown that worries me.

    It's fascinating to watch someone meltdown over hookers and blow. It's disturbing to witness a meltdown over what an internet forum has to say about the size of shoe welts and vintage shoes.

    This thread exemplifies the fact that all good things must come to an end

    He's singlehandedly destroyed this thread, honestly.
