Haha... Who are you talking about? Smile

Because I swear... That is EXACTLY how I see you... And I am probably not alone in that.

Although it does seem I've struck a nerve.

No one argued. You butted in. I asked how he went through the windshield if he was read ended. He answered that he did not know. But again you butted in. His answer was enough for me but obviously not for you.

DITTO, Al !



Where in the world did you guys get the idea that I was offended by anything? I was merely trying to imply that I was just glad that when I went outside to play as a child or when I put on my roller skates, my parents didn't slap a helmet on me.

You practically called the guy a liar and I pointed out some facts in his defense that you were apparently completely unaware of. (Although being completely unaware is not something that seems to hold you back.)


Butted in???

Really? I could have sworn this was a discussion board open to any member who cared to participate. If you don't want to publicly discuss something, the answer is simple, send a PM.

Yea...Butted in. Like you never had a conversation with someone here.

No one called anyone a liar. There you go assuming again. I thought you were a lawyer and dealt in facts.

I am sure Slide does not mind your comments, but honestly I believe he is more than capable of speaking for himself.

Good on her for picking this cause. But safer things are good as well. Caution. How much outrage would a stamp inspired accident cause?

In this day and age? I think if a certain type of parent had a kid skin his or her knee while skateboarding without wearing pads (one of the 'unsafe' activities promoted on one of the stamps), and if they made a stink out of it, I think it would make headlines.

Who looks at stamps anyway? Just stamp collectors (philatelists)? If she likes the stamps put them out she is the presidents wife and there is no room for Negotiation on this. Smile

I can see how serious this can be. Some kid skins his knee on his skateboard and says I saw it on a stamp and thought it was safe. This is serious zhit.

Personally, I'm just amazed that there are actually people who would defend the Postal Service's decision. How did we ever survive?

I do like the twitchy photo shopped stamps though!

Wow! You've got me down to a peg. But I didn't actually think that this thread (unlike all the others) was about me. But it is now.

Anyway, the mock up of the baseball stamp is interesting. BOTH of them ought to be wearing helmets. Like me!

Where is the "walk stamp" showing walking with a cell phone in their hand not looking where they are going while texting?

Ditto Nick. It's called twisting words that some folks here are very good at. Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.
