You can joke about turkey and stuffing, turkey giblets, turkey al a king, but never joke about Wild Turkey. If you've ever faced a wild turkey with an attitude in the woods you know why Jimmy chose that name.

Going back now... deeper and deeper... when the only connection was a 33.6k modem connection to a server 60 miles away, when you could download 2 seconds of your favorite movie scene or hot video in 45 minutes or less. You could chat or flame anyone who shared AOL with a 10 minute lag, so you had to make it worthwhile. It was exhausting.

Count your digital blessings, but look up from the screen sometimes. Life happens.

I had AOL back in the Doom days and still retain the email accounts.

I'm confident you can go even deeper though, like tell us of the days when you had to keep the string taught between two cans to communicate..
Or smoke signals even. :EvilOne2:

I see a bunch members are on but I hear crickets. Somebody die while I was gone?
Feels like a wake.

I once got drunk in a redneck bar and danced to this song.

I'll bet a lot of you have done the same thing.

I once got drunk at the EM club in San Juan. I licked a cute little filly on the ear... just as the lights came up at closing time. She hollered "You asshole, you slobbered on me!" I managed to duck out real quick, wandered into the night, and passed out on an anthill. The next morning, one of my shipmates asked "Why did you leave? A dozen Marines wanted to beat your ass!" I looked over the mass of welts from the feast the ants had on me and figured the ass beating would have been preferable.

Damn! The worst that happened to me was the clap and a court-martial!

Spent 2 hours stripping a nice little table, only to find the horizontal surfaces are MDF. This will take some work.
