    Yes Jesse we are different, but we are the same in many more ways. Maybe if we looked at how we are alike rather than our differences we could get along.

    I use salty language alot, I grew up fishing and on contruction sites so I heard it all. But if I offend someone I'll curb me tounge.

    Back to why Roper wins, posted the thread about our similarities. Winning approach. Internet rants, far less successful.

    It all goes back to how you were raised, and what you believe about yourself, and about the world.

    Life in America is a contest Old Man, didn't you know? Who's gonna leave the island tonight? Who's the best this or that. Partisan government. It's everywhere. That's why we can't get along with one another...

    I'm not competing with anyone. I'm just going to do what I do and be who I am. That will be good enough for all concerned, or it wont, and that's okay.

    And if someone doesn't like it, you could both swear at them and ban them!

    I don't have a swear and ban button. I'll ask Chris for a software upgrade. He'll say no because I'm a known loose cannon who is better at my forum custodial duties than any heavy lifting. We all have our place, I'm okay with mine.

    I think you are fishing with the wrong folks. I've not had any of the problems you mention.
    Maybe I'm a freak???????????????

    While I am often bored w/ the behaviors described, I'm rarely offended. As someone who, at the ripening age of 56, is entering the realm of old bastardry after decades of asinine displays; I say we cut the kids some slack and trust that they too will be appropriately appalled, down the road a piece. Figure in the law-of unintended-consequences - they've left a lasting record of their "indiscretions" for the ages, on the interweb - and their time will come. Recently I've come to a conclusion which resembles a theory of sorts. It is as follows: There's no such thing as wisdom; we're just too tired and busted up to be as stupid as we used to be.
    It's all about inertia.

    I believe wisdom is something you get a few moments after you REALLY need it . . . :rolleyes:

    This tickled my funny bone. However, I understand it may not be appreciated equally.
