Re: Hi Again

There's hardly anyone left here though. It's pretty much just Rope posting all the time, that's it. I hardly even show up there any more. I check in almost daily. The conversation has diminished significantly though, so I dont contribute much myself. I miss the days of having half a dozen new pages...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I forgot in the last post to apply a conclusion... but what is the longest distance that you've driven a manual vehicle without pitting? About 470 miles over 7 hours with no stops at all.

I cant even begin to remember how many airbags Ive pulled. Never once had an issue. The damn things are self-protected anyway to guard against accidental splodey-boombooms

As for me, I'm going to purposefully put that off as long as possible, even though I'm 33 and my mom nags me relentlessly about wanting a grandchild.
