Please keep politics, spam and personal attacks OFF

POS Pinkies and other OTC/BB types of stock symbols are NOT ALLOWED, 99% of Pinkies are absolute scams!

Also a word of warning for those who desire to post anything confrontational or that resembles an attack on the board's theme, the post WILL BE DELETED and the poster BANNED, so choose your words wisely!

Freedom Of Speech is guaranteed by America, not iHub, iHub is a privately owned company, and they have their own rules, ones which the posters have agreed to follow. Another fine point that a lot people seem to miss is that being banned from one or more boards is not denial of free speech if they are still free to post elsewhere here. iHub is one of the greats because people do not have to put up with childish behavior, fools, and bullies who do not contribute, and cannot disagree without bashing, trashing, and belittling.

A MUST READ before posting here....

to all -- re bans, I should perhaps also note that I do have an omnibus 'finally and completely utterly insufferable jackass' rule -- I can be quite patient, especially when dealing with new posters who may not yet have a feel for how I run things here -- but my patience is NOT infinite, and I will NOT indefinitely put up with anyone whose primary purpose here appears to me to be to taunt/bait/disrupt

There is a dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It resides amongst science and superstition, between the pit of man's fears, and the summit of his knowledge it is the Rant and Rave zone.

For entertainment purposes only. May cause gastric discomfort. Seek medical assistance if priapism, or erection lasting more than 4 hours, occurs.

(1)- THIS BOARD IS ENTIRELY OPEN & LIBERAL!! We have NOTHING to hide in our closet!!

(2)- **NOTE** at times there could be some strong & colorful language here due to the subject matter of the board.

(3)- We invite trader's and loose women to come and sit a spell at our Trader's Lounge, smoke 'em & post 'em if you've got 'em!

(4)-Humor is eagerly and gleefully accepted, PLEASE feel free.

(5)- As a matter of principle I insist that my posts stand on their own without any defense of myself nor discussion of any personal credentials or authority I might speak with.

It should be the force of the argument not the voice of the speaker that is determinative of the credibility of the point offered.

This board is not about me. My identity is not an issue except as you would propose to make it so.

As said before it is my stated policy that I do not surrender any aspect of my privacy. That includes any and all questions confirming or denying anything relating to me except as I alone may choose to answer

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
"Life is all about ass... Either you are covering it,
kicking it, kissing it, laughing it off, busting it, or trying to get a piece of it, behaving like one or you live with one!"

Life is also like a penis:
When it's soft, you can't beat it, and when it's
hard, you get screwed!


It's Not the heat, it's the HORMONES!

A lie has many faces. The truth but one.

"Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens"

Too soon old, too late smart!

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.

An optimist thinks that this is the best possible world. A pessimist fears that this is true.

Everyone should have a spouse, because there are a number of
things that go wrong that one can't blame on the government.

My greatest fear is there is no such thing as PMS
and this is really my personality!

Don't lie, steal or cheat.....Unnecessarily!

Too much is NEVER enough.

Personally, I'd gladly participate in any experiment,
which tests the effect of sudden wealth.

"Failure is not an option" Eminem

Learn from yesterday,live for today,hope for tomorrow.

"Never have so many, known so little, about so much"

After a time You may come to find
That having Is not so pleasing a thing
As wanting after all.

Getting old is mandatory...Growing up is optional

Never ascribe to malice that which can be singley explained as

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50
chance of getting something right, there's a 90%
probability you'll get it wrong.

"Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them." -Albert Einstein

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once
--Albert Einstein

"The important thing is not to stop questioning."
- Albert Einstein

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." --Albert Einstein

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." --Albert Einstein

"The wisest men follow their own direction" ~

"The older I grow, the less important the comma becomes. Let
the reader catch his own breath."
-Elizabeth Clarkson Zwart

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want."
--Margaret Young

You have not lived a perfect day, even though you have earned your money, unless you have done something for someone ...who cannot repay you. ~Ruth Smeltzer~

"Good judgement is usually the result of experience. And experience is frequently the result of bad judgement. But to learn from the experience of others requires those who have the experience to share the knowledge with those who follows." B. LePatner

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves,
but wiser people are so full of doubts." -Bertrand Russell

In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends. John Churton Collins

Life is too important to be taken seriously!

"Virtue is often the result of insufficient temptation."

"Cunning and treachery shall overcome youth and skill."

When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm BAD, I'm BETTER.

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.

Born on a mountaintop, raised in a cave...
Postin and tradin is all that I crave!

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.

"I recognize that I may be wrong. This makes me insecure.
My sense of insecurity keeps me alert, always ready to correct my errors."
"The prevailing wisdom is that markets are always right,
I take the opposite position. I assume that markets are always wrong."
George Soros

I prefer to describe myself as a "Contemporary
Anthropological Interactive Observer" because it has
just the right amount of flair. Besides...."stalker"
is such an ugly word.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW--What a Ride!"

"The market is a place set apart where men may deceive each other."
-Diogenes Laertius (Circa 200 AD)

Smart is when you only believe half of what you hear.
Brilliant is when you know which half.

I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well

Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
--Albert Einstein

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
--Albert Einstein

Confucius say: "The truth cannot be assailed. Falsity is the true coward that hides from the light."

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. -Thomas Merton

Character is what you are.
Reputation is what people think you are.

The difference between genius and stupidity is genius has it's limitations, stupidity doesn't.

Genius does what it must, talent does what it can
