I wonder if sales of export radios and modified CB equipment will slow down with the solar minimum.

Don't know about that, but I suspect the sale of 8 pill and higher linear amps will go up.  Grin

*eyes the news* Re: that revolting Sound Garden song...  I should not have said a word, should I?  Didn't know anything had happened to the lead singer at the time I posted, but I still feel like something of a heel now.

I'm a fan but I perceived no insensitivity in your remark. I figured you hadn't heard the news when you posted. I don't think it had broken yet. I only heard this morning myself.

People are dying today that never died before. Like poor old Roger Ailes. I heard Satan and Franco were waiting for him at the gates of Hell. They figure if he could get Nixon elected in 1968, it would be a cinch for him to get them out of their predicaments.

When you make dead guy jokes you've got to consider the reputation of the man along with the timing, Chanter. Posting a joke about Ailes going to Hell and using his skills to help Satan and Franco wouldn't have the same punch if I'd waited until he was in the ground.

I give all you folks permission to laugh your buttocks off when I kick off :-)

And the jokes... anything goes unless it messes with the HFU policy...  off line everything goes :-)

I believe in eternal life...  And if the theories hold up that you can't destroy energy... Well I'll go tap dancing on a lot of graves...  Prepare for a tap tap tap to all in a box below the ground.

As for my dead husk...  I, like George Carlin, want to be blown up... not in a box, or burned, toss a few holy handy-grrr-naids me... Get drunk and have a BBQ and smoke some pan...  errrr... pot?

man.... where the hell is my medication...  suddenly feeling dizzy...   arg.... <<<<thud>>>>

You have never struck me as someone who would be insensitive like that. Like MDK2 I figured you hadn't heard the news yet.

No offense taken here, and I'm a Soundgarden fan.
