Okay, too literal also.

A car is not a toy.
You must obey the proper safety rules at all times.

There's a line about fame near the end of David Milch's brilliant take on marketing and mysticism, John From Cincinnati.

As they start giving out gift baskets to the press corps, one of the surfers standing in front of the cameras says to his mother, "We're them now, Ma."
He's not smiling.

hey, what's with certain phrases highlighting and being links? I didn't do that!!

oh Gyre......really? you'd follow a bus at 45 mph for hundreds of miles, rather than (withing the speed limit) pass them on the right?
and, are you sure you can't pass on the right? That speaks exactly to your situation, where a person could go 25 in the left lane, and hold everyone up.........

I had a facebook link appear for trilo.
No idea???

It is illegal to pass on the right.
Mostly not enforced in the usa though, like slower cars to the right.
Florida claimed to start enforcing it a few years ago, due to so many problems.
If you have a problem caused by doing it, you'll catch the fault though.

I feel such the scofflaw.........passing on the right, periodically speeding, and committing "rolling stops" if no one is at an intersection.

Speed limits are often not based on engineering, but revenue collection.
The 80th percentile rule for speed is still more reliable than most techniques for setting speeds.

There is good reason for the passing on the right ban though.
It is heavily enforced in europe.

Speed is not as dangerous as differential speeds, as the 55mph limit proved.

As far as I know, that should be specific to forums or sites.
Happening here should be a hack of the site or our systems.
Adblock stops the legit ones.

it's called "playbright" and was somehow added to my "extensions" or "add ons"......it underlines random words, and attaches an ad, if you hover it'll tell you, and if you click it hyperlinks you there.
how the hell did it even get on my machine?
dang.
I found and disabled it.....(I hope)

He'll at least you did not the FBI virus. It locks up your computer and tells you it has been seazed by the FBI saying you have downloaded child porn and beastyality porn. That you have to pay $200 via green dot to have it unlocked. That god one of my regulars at the pub Works at IT at the college and offered to fix it. So for now I'm stuck using my iPhone to post here.

Dull night here. Tom is at work till 7am and still no tv. Next 3 days off but get to go to bassnectar and see my dad on sat. ( have not seen my dad in 3 years and even then only got to see him for a half hour lay over at the airport) so it will be really nice to see him.

There aren't any security issues, infections, or breaches going on with ePlaya - if you're experiencing that kind of strangeness that may indicate that your system has been compromised. You may have been duped into installing something malicious, or have been infected by something. If you have some kind of AV/security software, make sure it's updated and do a full/complete scan, or consider stepping up to something better (whatever you think you know or are doing isn't good enough if your machine's been infected). Good luck getting your systems cleaned up.

Good morning!!!

*starts ECM, dialed up to max*

Gosh hello (((everyone))) I have really missed you! I did not lose power in that dreadful storm but have really been hopping ever since, working extra shifts from home and pushing my daggone eyeballs past their limits. :?

I have moved camp to my mother's now, she did not get hit too hard by the storm but my sister is out of town so, I am here to keep Mom calm and sort things out.

Nice perk: I got here late Wednesday evening, in time to invite my two best-beloved ancestors to join me for a midnight drink in the house where they each died. 8) 8) 8)

How are you guys doing? Congrats on your test results, Bob, though a tiny love seat would be loved by all here.

ah, thanks MDF.......you are the coffee Goddess. And glad to hear you and your are ok.
hahaa, that was a good one....." little love seat"............

Trilo: So it seems I got a "program" OR add on that is what was causing the highlighted words with links. It had a link to disable it, and I found it in my list of add ons and disabled, too.....it must have come in a bundle, when I downloaded "open office" or some such, from the net. Since it's not really a virus or whatever, and seems a legit company, it must not be tagged as bad.......and it's not super bad, just weird. Underhanded way to get your attention.
I"ll see if it stays gone............
