I'm glad you did
I'm new here and never would have found this gem if you had not resurrected it.
Thanks to all who posted for the entertaining thread ride.


I feel mike punch and pastorbob have been touched by a bit of the SubGenius.

REPENT!!!!

the Lord never sleeps!
I am soon forgiven...
certificates can always be issued!!
I got less then 2 weeks to be out of my Finland home and "EVERYTHING MUST GO!!!"
there wont be a lick of hoarding left behind (packed in crates to USA!)
My Parents have noticed there are 8 bikes in their cellar though!

I'm guilty as well. I tend to buy things I see here or on the bay or craigslist, even though I have no current use for them. Wifey says "what are you goint to use that on?". I say "I don't know yet, but it will show itself in due time"
