I vote to keep the Locker Room, and to merely keep MrFrisby under strict observation, albeit with powerful tranquilizers on hand at all times.

Should SportsFilter Think of the Children?

Always a bad idea to barge into an existing community and expect it to change because you've got a problem with it. Suck it up, get a decent interweb filter, and deal with it. Nearly every internets browser in the world has a parental control utility. Use it, police what your child does and views, and stop bitching about what happens here at the adult table.

Bug: Spofi eats comments

Hang in there THX, and Mrs. THX; it's been almost three years exactly since my wife finished her chemo and radiation, and her hair just now started growing back normally; when she was diagnosed, her hair was mostly straight; when it started to grow back, it was locked into tight little curls like a perm. Weirdest damn thing.

Cancer sucks, and so does being the caretaker of a loved one with cancer, but this too, shall pass. It's a lot of pain and misery, followed by a score of little victories, as things return to normal.

Good luck and Godspeed to you both.

Sorry to get all personal in public, everybody, but THX doesn't have an email listed, and I wanted to pass on some encouragement.

And, I'm stoned.

I was going to post the track-listing, but I wanted to make sure you guys actually got mine first. cjets, graphic and music greatly appreciated. You might find a couple on mine that resonate. Fatty, I know nothing about dance music, and so cannot name many of the selections you included, so a track listing would greatly interest me; at least, it would allow me to identify the ones that have bored their way into my head, and play over and over in my sleep. I do know this much: it's got a good beat, and I can dance to it. Well, I call it dancing, anyway. Bystanders usually describe it as a seizure of some sort.

Fatty, I got a punk mix, and a dance mix; I don't have 'em with me right now (they're both loaded on my work computer), so I don't remember which is which, except that the punk mix had a wicked cool graphic of Johnny Rotten as a Stormtrooper. The dance mix was naked, just how I like my dancin'.

And, in a strange coincidence, one of my neighbors, who has an address easily confused with mine if you're dyslexic, answered his door the other day and was punched in the face by a total stranger wearing a baseball shirt with greenish sleeves, who didn't say a word. Weird shit, huh?

Actually, it depends on how old the tires are. New tires need to be warmed up, as cabuki said. If your tires have a few laps on 'em, you want to clean the old rubber and crap off before the restart, so you don't spin them like that dumbass Dale Jr. did yesterday at the end of the race.

If admins can't take some criticism once in a while. I'd say they have no right to criticise others on this sight. They need to get off high horse and decide if they are above criticism and, if they are, to state so and we as a group will give them a free pass. I hope you sat in front of a mirror when you typed that. You are one of the most oversensitive people on this site. You make ignorant statements with no proof, and then when others (rightly) call you on your buffoonery, you get all shitty. Everybody here gets in the occasional scrap, but most handle it much better than you do. If I had the power I would have deleted the post straight away after reading and email reason why. Thank God you don't have the power. If the content on this site depended on you, this site would suck the pipe big time. I think the admins here do a fantastic job of keeping track of over 16,000 members, and hundreds of posts and comments a day. You obviously don't, which raises the question: if you're so friggin' unhappy here, why not just leave?

Hm, Geniune Indiana Guru comes from Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show's "Cover of the Rolling Stone," and Frank Zappa and the Mommas (actually, I believe it's "the Mothers," but I could be wrong) comes from "Smoke on the Water," by Deep Purple. Zappa's "Montana" had the Dental Floss Tycoon in it (riding Mightly Little, no less!). I'm lost on Grouper Trouper, but for some reason, I'm thinking ABBA.

I saw AC/DC on the For Those About to Rock tour, I believe at the Municipal Auditorium in Mobile, AL, some time around 1982. They brought their own Howitzers with 'em, I was stoned for a week from the ambient pot smoke, and I couldn't hear for three days afterwards. All in all, a successful concert.

CHMN DINGLE: At this point, The Committee would like to call a secret witness. THE TIN MAN'S LAWYER: Mister Chairman, we object to this witness, as we had no prior notification of his presence. Can we at least get his name? CHMN DINGLE: I can vouch for this witness, as I worked with him in the French Foreign Legion; we spent a considerable amount of time traversing the arid plains of Algeria; while his identity must remain a secret, he is above reproach. THE TIN MAN'S LAWYER: Mister Chairman, while I respect your relationship with the witness, can't you provide us with any more details of your experience? CHMN DINGLE: I've been through the desert on a horse with no name.

I'm in again; also, as I hear there's a Nickelback shortage in the Third World, I'd happily sacrifice all the Nickelback you might be thinking about sending me to the less fortunate out there who really, really need crappy melodies, high school instrumental ability, and a voice only a mother could love. If Nickelback's plane fell out of the sky and landed on The Goo Goo Dolls' tour bus, then the whole flaming mess rolled down a hill and crushed Daughtry, I'd be okay with that.

Dude, you've got to get used to the sense of humor around here. You really didn't have to explain The Diary of Anne Frank, just becuase Hater got the reference wrong; it's been a while since he read TDAF back in high school, not to mention the fact that he lost his whole brainstem in an unfortunate hurling incident; give the guy a break. And Helen Keller, despite her problems, was an absolute stickler for proofreading.
