Sorry, my Foo-son. You don't win here, either. Being the Village Idiot requires that one is at least aware of being an idiot, but still acts like an ass anyway. And I'm not gonna vote amongst this crew, lest I cast a vote for myself!

Unfortunatly leaving an honest opinion concerning the OP`s title would violate forum rules which I agreed to abide by. This is one of those catch 22 situations where honesty would be in violation of said rules thereby risking a Mod review and possible ban at worst or maybe just a tongue lashing.

Or you can just pm it to a mod and ask if it's okay.

I used to do that. Matter of fact, they probably got tired of fixing things for me. I think they just want me to do it myself now.

Nothing prohibits you from defining "village idiot," you idiot.

What is this "Aerospoke" and what is this "riser" of which you speak?

Hey, PBR is some damned good stuff, for mass-produced brew....

I was just about to suggest Jon was more like the Court Jester and Max was the Villiage Idiot when I remembered the pic of Jon lying face down in a city sewer drainage ditch trying to be funny. Sorry Max the Idiot needle is starting to lean a little closer to Jon at this moment.

Max, as I said.... Sorry, you're no Village Idiot. Just a little young for some of what passes as "mature" conversation here. But I certainly don't think you're an idiot. You are a fine young fellow, who will likely grow to be a fine young man.

Okay, just like a hacker and a leet person cannot be self nominated. The Village Idiot also cannot be self -nominated.

Thanks.
