Who thinks land rovers are the best land vehicle evar? (JSR Halp
me)

And has anyone seen Jackass 3D, I liked I & II but I'd like to know if it's worthwhile.

I think that's off topic enough.

I prefer my bacon pan fried. I know it's less healthy than microwaved, but I like to be in control of the cooking at all times.

Speaking of dogs...Are there any common problems with a used 1978 El Camino?

It's one channel.

Good to see another amateur here, I'm QRP 6m and QRO 2m & 70 cm.

I'm also a VK3, I won't post the rest though we could exchange callsigns via PM.

I didn't pick up a ticket. Most of the rest of the family are general or tech. My folks check in on Darfnet every week.

I still go to hamfests for supplies and play in a few fox hunts. Been to a few field days.

I used to hang out with ZF1RC and ZF1DJ. Their QSO cards are highly coveted in the US.

I did some commercial broadcast engineer work, so I do have some time working with some high power transmitters. Most hams are limited to 2KW or less.

i worked on stuff larger than that.

Don't quote me but PCGUY has mentioned to me about bringing the general section back.

If he does topic locking will certainly be reduced (captain obvious :P ).

Then members wont whine and bitch about us mods doing our jobs when it affects them in any kind of way... :roll:
Look if you must.

No doubt!

Well, let's say they're the best land vehicle I can afford to actually own :roll: (btw mine passed its MOT flawlessly yesterday and without corrupting the tester, was overjoyed!)

I like the idea of a random off-topic thread, perhaps you could just have it as a sticky instead of having a "general" section to "pollute" the forum "with" things that should "be on" theopia ":?"

Pickles in jars attended conference calls thoroughly suggested whatever path houses all animals during rejected samples for examination. However, fifteen minutes is longer with most frequently traveled paths, except one is enough to sufficiently drawback another escapade.

edit: also what kind of speed could you achieve with an 8mm steel bb in a 1m barrel with twice the barrels volume compressed to 1000psi?

As long as GGDT is posted.. Here is a projection for a future golf ball cannon. Note the muzzle energy.
