  1. LMFAO! Knee slapper right there. I'll try to read the rest of it when i can recover from laughing at the hypocrisy.
  2. I responded to someone elses post. that doesn't mean i don't ignore frank. You got into Rutgers, right?

A frightening and cowardly stalker - would you consider it "hate filled" if you responded aggressively and negatively to that person? Cause me, personally, I don't think I'd be satisfied with just words, I'd be looking to call in some favors and have someone local give that person a little lesson in the reality of their actions. But that's just me - we all react differently when people attack us and our families. I want the Tavern to be less hate-filled....a big step would be getting rid of creepy people that stalk other members real lives, real kids, real families and real jobs. Know anybody like that? TimS TimS can mention vigilante squad threats of physical violence. For everyone else, mere mention of common items is verboten.

If you are referring to Frank and me, i've had him blocked for quite some time now as i was asked to do, so it's not an issue of me ignoring him. I only see his posts when he demands my attention and get someone to quote him, then freaks out that he got the attention he so fervently strived for. Not tying to raise any hackles, just pointing out the reality of the situation.

He designed the record-breaking Voyager, which was the first plane to fly around the world without stopping or refueling, and the sub-orbital spaceplane SpaceShipOne, which won the Ansari X-Prize in 2004 for becoming the first privately funded spacecraft to enter the realm of space twice within a two-week period. He has five aircraft on display in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., United States: SpaceShipOne, the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer, Voyager, Quickie, and the VariEze.[1]" Rutan is an incredible aerospace guy. Branson is a money guy and a bit of a glory hound. I don't have any problem with his Virgin Galactic initiates, i applaud him for trying. Yes, with all great endevours, there will be failures.

  9. All this fun and games aside, can we all agree a Chevy small block V8 makes the best engine sound ever? C'mon, i'm sure we can all agree on that fact!

  11. If someone was going to try to hurt someone, a filet knife is a crappy tool for it anyway. And yes, while I am in the construction industry, I don't actually wear steel toed boots.
  12. Quote: Originally Posted by chumfish Send me a link to the post in question. I can see everything. True story. Chum, since Tim hasn't been around much, and you've been here as a mod for some time, would you characterize my posts as antagonistic? Have you felt you had to watch my posts in any way? Would you feel I've been a positive contributor since "the expirement"?

No matter how much you pretend it's a new Jeff, you continue to make things very personal with your threats - give me a number here, how many days since you last threatened someone physically - called someone an idiot - or a spitter - any number of other very personal insults? You think you've made it a whole week? TimS Ive never threatened Frank, and if you care to look, you'll find that it's been a very, long time since I've called anyone (besides maybe dinghy or Lucky or Ambition in a joking manner ) an idiot or anything similar. Probably before tropical storm Sandy. Ask the others here, besides your pet project Frank whom I have blocked and only see his posts when he's antagonizing me and begging others to quote him so I see it, yet you focus on me as the issue. Thanks for running on old history though.

The cylinder bore is used in the calculation, not the piston diameter, even though the difference is almost small enough to be considered negligible.
