I tried to remember a conversation from maybe 45 years ago-

Buck says "hey man, come on out on the strasse tonight. All the fellas will be at the VFW. You know. Black-out.
C'mon man. It's Christmas. We ain't at home fighting at least. Ain't gonna fight here either. Come on up and meet my friends from Philly."

"OK Buck. I'll get by. Going to Schmieds too."

Later me and DC cobblestoned on up there. I remember it wasn't street level but was upstairs in a pretty old house or something. It was plushly fit and lit and decorated and absolutely packed with the brothers. DC just kept muttering "damn" under his breath.
Buck saw me and waved me over to his table to meet his group. I nodded at him and slowly moved that way. 

There was a great sound system in the place and a small dance floor full of revelers.

As I approached the table and said hi or wassup or whatever the vernacular was at the time, a blonde German girl there hanging on one of the guys looked at me and said in her German black slang, "what are these crackers doing here?!"

Everybody busted out laughing including me, but not DC. He was horrified.
Buck looked at her and said "Bitch shut the f___ up, these are my friends!"
It was funny I have to admit. Racists are so stupid.
Hello! Hooray! Or, whatever the vernacular is these days...

That is usually named as spamming. In moderated forums, this is a no-go as people who do will be kicked on sight.

Here, the forum appears to be completely without any moderator. As long, as no-one sends in a complaint to the headmaster... while being such a snitch could get one kicked even more quickly.

I have learned to live with R_P as a pig-nosed Trump-hater (under MAGA influence) and I seem to concur with him on many points, lately.

Having discussions (and not having threads flooded) is a valid concern to me. Due to the nature of this forum given, all posts fly by and we always get to see the latest ones only. So it seems hard to catch on any discussion by topic at all. This isn't R_P's fault, but due to the forum software, imo.

This short-livedness reminds me of Facebook and Twitter timelines. The forum also uses a (common) timeline of threads, on the left side. It seems that all this shortlivedness is a new feature (I'd rather call it a bug) of the internet today. If you look at the half-life period of news on the net, the same thing seems to hold. Hardly anyone is willing to dig deep. It would mean time and energy to invest. - Instead, mostly lazy comments, either supporting or disparaging of a previous thought... OMG, you guessed right, it seems like "The Decline of The West" (see), but only self-inflicted, this time. 😂

If you don't want your news bubble pierced just scroll past. Myself, I find it useful to know what the Kremlin troll farms are feeding to RT.

She scaled back a bit this year.
BUT... she made this glorious pie to die for... I think I'll eat the whole thing myself. Then I'll die. 
I'll post over in the "Vote for Pie" page tomorrow.
Did I mention I now have a new favorite pie?
