I'm sure there is, G, just give it some thought...  ;)

First time, though, that I've been called a pe pole...  
Guess there's now way to blame someone else for this, huh? :-[ ;D

I have a Ranger too, BD, but the clutch went out last year and I haven't fixed it yet.  Too many other things.  It is a good little work truck.  The F150 plow truck I got last fall is a good one too.  But the Tracker is a perfect trail buggy...

Ah, I see. I have a Ranger I use on my property for work and hunting.

An off-road vehicle for old pepole

And that too...  :P

We have dirt bikes, quads, 3 wheeler, golf carts, and a Kawasaki Mule.  But the Tracker is my favorite, because I set it up like a little home away from home...

Could be anything you can hit the back trails with, BD.  We have a few.  But in this case it's a Geo Tracker that I set up for trail rides.  It's really great for those 4 hour midnight trail rides...

What's a trail buggy?


Today at 02:30:51 AM
Got the trail buggy home, and ordered a new starter and solenoid.  Always something...

It's a Wildwood banjo, made in Cali. It's used but in great shape. New it would cost $2,500+. Should be here Friday.i really need to stop buying instruments!!!


Yesterday at 03:49:01 AM
Well, went for a back road ride this afternoon, stopped for a coffee, and the solenoid in the trail buggy died.  Had to phone a friend.  And tomorrow have to go get the buggy home and fix it...  >:(

Must be a nice banjo, BD...


Yesterday at 01:18:52 AM
Well, I just spent $1,400 on a new banjo, so I know how it feels...

I still don't see how you reached your conclusions and you never pointed out specifics from the memo... 
I understand "not reaching the same conclusion"... just asked you to be specific and you said we're splitting hairs. Seems the hair splitting is the meat of the debate.
But ok...
You're right this is the "In Search of Humor" category... maybe someone got a laugh out of our back and forth.


Actually, I think you have a great point here.  My conclusion is:  I don't have a conclusion.

He claims that his dissenting view is being repressed.  As I said before, I don't work for Google or know this guy so maybe he's right, maybe not.  I simply don't know and don't think we have enough information.  Having said that, the instance I pointed out of classifying a group of people as "neurotic" and sharing it with the whole company MAY violate their code of conduct.  Maybe it doesn't, I don't know.  I don't think it's so cut and dry.  Google admitted that some of his points are worthy of discussion.  That's not repression of dissenting ideas.  Maybe everything he said about their diversity practices is exactly right, but maybe it isn't.  Maybe it was his method that got him fired and not the content, I don't know.  So my point is, I don't think I have enough information to come to the same conclusion as you. Maybe I'll change my mind down the road, maybe I won't. 

The nice thing is that we don't have to come to a conclusion about everything we see in the news.  It's all just information that we absorb and shade by our own preferences and experiences.  That mush of data then guides how we live and vote in the world.

Wait, what are we debating again?  :D

How about... Are you in favor of the unabridged version or the PG version of Anne Franks Diary?
there were some deleted passages because of the sexual content... sort of.
Wait this doesn't belong in Humor either....

If.... it's a temporary lull... why am I bored right outta my skull?
Man, I'm dressin' sharp an' feelin' dull
