Pendergast ran Kansas City, not St. Louis.

I love my Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes is freaking unbelievable!

I do worry about our defense just a little bit, still believe we are going to the Superbowl.

Yeah the article talked a lot about Gilmore, but I was specifically referring to the West Memphis speedtrap.

Where I-40 & I-55 merge and on to the river, they drop the speed limit from 70 mph to 45 mph or something ridiculous, AND have the speed limit sign behind a tree or something where you really have to pay attention to notice it, and as I recall there was only like one sign with the lower speed limit.  And they target out of state people, my sister who lived in Memphis laughed about it and said that it was notorious, and was sorry that she didn't warn me about it...  This was in the mid 90s...

However, in 1994 the Jonesboro Sun reported more than 350 citations one month, 450 in another. In contrast, the city of Jonesboro, which has 148 times the population of Gilmore and which claims a longer portion of Highway 63, handed out 454 tickets. West Memphis police officers handed out just 245 tickets during that same period.

Apparently you made it through there without getting caught, or you noticed the one speed limit sign and slowed down.  OR they finally were made to stop doing the speed trap shenanigans.

Has WhiteCrow turned his back on BellGab or something?  Did he resign as Deputy?

I still think he is Jesse Ventura.

I see that there is a joke hear, but I am missing the punchline.

A Memphis Winter. 58F.

Does that town (West Memphis?) on the Arkansas side of the river still have that speed trap set up?  Where they drop the speed limit down to 35 or 45 ON THE HIGHWAY and hide the sign behind a tree or something?  I got nailed by that one time.  It is right before you cross the Mississippi.

Nice little operation they had going there, the cop explained that all you had to do was mail them a bigger check than the speeding fine (I think it was like $100 extra), and they would reduce it to a parking ticket, no moving violation, no points.   Dirty pool.  Brilliant, but dirty pool.

Here's a story that mentions it:

Id have just hidden the report button for perpetual whiner accounts. Spam problem fixed.

So no new nominations for TRC?

Bitch be OPEN


I could not have predicted thus.  Welcome back, Zzotzz!


Is that a Su-25 "Frogfoot"?  Looks like a Russian version of the A-10 "Warthog."

My relatively minor research I just did now indicates the Su-25 was built for the same CAS role the A-10 was designed for.  Apparently they even made a "tank-killer" variant of the Su-25.  Neat.

...I actually feel very sorry for Falkie...

Kevin, I do not know what seekrut mission you are on currently, but I wonder if you could spare some thyme to go hunt for some of our missing persons from this place.  I have been reviewing this thread and it is apparent to me that you out of all of us have the unique abilities to "ferret" out the wayward.

I urge you to visit and relay to the absentee brethren that we miss them.  The vacuum of their absence is being filled with some unsavory new faces.  I fear for the future.

Your writings and visions have proven to be prophetic, please help.

So a few weeks ago, I picked up a Ryobi scroll saw for $20, and the seller threw this in for free if I just would haul it off (got some attachments too):

(not the actual image of the one I got)

Apparently it was the lady's father's Shop Smith, and someone had moved it outside for ? years.  I need to take it apart and make sure the motor isn't seized up, etc.  I think I can bring it back to life.  It's pretty neat, and all I really want it for is the lathe feature.  I already have a table-saw, drill press, router etc..  I think the one I have is a Mark 5 from the 50s or 60s, haven't really looked at it due to thyme constraints, but it is resting comfortably in the basement until I can get to it...

I am excited that they are still making these things, AND that the new Mark 7 is reverse compatible as far as parts/accessories go with the old Mark 5.  Pretty nifty.
