      You cannot argue with someone who knows they are right...

        While you are 100% correct, I've learned an interesting thing:

        You can't learn anything new from someone that's agreeing with you.

        I admit I like the learning process better if who ever it is that's teaching me something new is nice about it. But I often still manage to learn some things from some... well lets just say from some "Five black star" types. (even if sometimes all I learn is they are 'Five black star' types...)

        Pays (I think) to understand the physics of water and a ducks back...

            Nah, BF. You MIGHT make the top three, but you ain't getting voted off the island first. No way no how.

              Sorry BF, but you've got a contest.

              Given the selection criteria I reckon I will make the first five of five.

              Its only a matter who fills positions 6 and onward.

              The best you can do is 6.

                I know it's in fun but someone is going to get upset. This is a Great forum & a world of knowlege. I can learn alot from all this experience cranky or not, even BF! Maybe not from a few like garywhatever but his antics where entertaining. Just my opinion but I don't think it's a good idea. It will cause some not to post their opinion or idea & that's what makes this forum so good. JMHO. Thanks! Eric

                  That's a stupid idea.

                          Trouble is we're ALL grumpy old fudds. I'd rather listen to the gear train thump of an interupted cut ANY DAY than the crazy woman at work that never shuts up. Makes me want to step out to the shop and fix something with a big hammer RIGHT NOW. If we were all Mr. Personality we'd be at the martini bar instead of out in the shop.
                          I'm here hoping to advancify my smartitude.
