  1. Hey, that is unfair. I am a tremendous loser.
  2. I ain't dying without taking at least a few people with me. And Terri is at the top of the list.
  3. If it were me, I'd go Microwaves, all day long. They cast great.
  4. Terri: working the same lame joke, over and over and over and over again, worse than anyone since Raymond J. Johnson, Jr. I think I'll start calling you Ray:
  5. Why do you suck so bad? I'll hang up and listen.
  6. Benito Mussolini > Terri.
  7. What's Terri's favorite schoolyard game? Swallow the Leader!
  8. Your shtick is so tired you make Henny Youngman look like Mort Sahl.
  9. Lowrider guides > Terri.
  10. Striped bass > Terri.
  11. There was a guy on Fresh Air last week, a biologist from N.C. State, IIRC, who wrote a book about the biosphere in are houses. He said that in his house, there were something like 12 spider species -- and he never saw any of them. Y'all can think of that after you pull the covers under your chin tonight.
  12. Rob was kind enough not only do donate a blank -- a Mudhole CRB 7-footer -- but to bring it down to Philly. I actually met him (i07NYC) on Saturday -- he's a good guy! Which is going to make winning this "contest" even sweeter! I wiggled the thing last night, and have figured out what I'm going to do with it. Believe it or not, it might be done by the end of the month, depending on how fast Mudhole ships the stuff I ordered last night. I'll post pics of my disaster masterpiece shortly.
  13. That is correct. And there was an article in are local fishwrap relatively recently: the price of recyclable material has dropped so much that Philly may end recycling entirely. Philly does single-stream recycling, and a few years ago, they were getting paid something like 4 cents a ton for the commingled paper/glass/plastic stuff, which is pretty good, considering that A) they're getting paid for garbage (garbage from Philly hasn't earned that kind of loot since Hall & Oates were releasing records), and B) they pay something like 8 cents a ton to dispose of trash (Philly has to pay to get someone to take their trash, because there's no landfill inside city limits). Getting paid for garbage is way better than having to pay to get rid of it. But Philthy, and everyone else, has gone from being paid for recyclables to having to pay to get the recycling plants to take them, and it's gone all the way up to something like 6 or 7 cents a ton. In other words, it's almost as expensive for them to unload the recyclables as it is to get rid of trash. And people in the city are starting to wonder that if it goes to the same price as trash, or even higher, then why recycle? Just send everything to the landfills. And the collapse of the price of recyclable materials is evidently all due to something the Chinese are doing. They'll probably never end recycling here, because the Greenies would blow a gasket. But it ain't the world it was four or five years ago. And, in conclusion, Terri sucks.
  14. Dopers.
