I tangle with people on a regular basis. It's my nature, my personality. And sure, sometimes I do it to put people in their places, but for the most part, it's just because I don't want anyone...even the adversaries...to believe things that aren't true.
Now, don't get me wrong...that's not a claim of "I'm always right, and if someone disagrees with me, they're wrong." Not at all. There's genuine differences of opinion by earnest people about what course to take, and what's really true.
But a lot of things ARE knowable, and a lot of things aren't (currently) knowable, and weeding through the bullshit can be a little daunting sometimes.
That said...I do grow fond of regulars, and miss people when they disappear, for one reason or another.
I miss Beau, for instance, quite a bit, and I know I probably won't see him again for a very long time, and certainly not in this realm.
Hell, if jaydogrules disappeared, I'd wonder where he'd gotten to. I might not MISS him, per se, but I'd still wonder what happened.
Stupid Team Up: I love bacon as much as I hate Tampa Bay!

steveinthecity: Btw, the chard was fine. Very light taste, not bitter at all. Had it mixed with spinach and romaine to use as “greens” for salads.

Stupid Team Up: By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a terrible Rush song. There, I said it.

steveinthecity: They probably have more than one. Did they make any albums after Moving Pictures?

steveinthecity: oh, there was “Roll The Bones”? I honestly cannot recall them right now.

Stupid Team Up: They did make albums after Moving Pictures because that's when I was old enough to go see them. I remember Fastway opened one of the shows.... Kinda weird choice

Stupid Team Up: I saw them on Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows

steveinthecity: All those titles ring a bell, now. I heard “Permanent Waves” album on radio, and then bought my first Rush album, which was actually the 3-disc set “Archives”. I never did see a live show. I only know Fastway from their 1st album.

Stupid Team Up: Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie from Motorhead... Did they have more than one album?

Stupid Team Up: The fake crowd noise is the worst... I can barely hear the announcers.

steveinthecity: I’m not getting Tampa Bay, it’s St. Louis vs 49ers. +1 on crowd noise. I forgot there was no crowd at first, then wondering why the announcers are talking so loud.

steveinthecity: Ugghh...forgot. Cardinals are Arizona, not St. Louis.
