    Game console / handheld for me, a pacifist.

    Something I haven't really discussed here, but in the past few years I have committed to being avoiding violence. Politics and opinions aside, of the big 3 of gaming consoles, what would be the best for games that have little or no violence, or cartoonish violence? Also, with handhelds can...

    I recently bought this and was wondering before I spent a good deal of money, what a white pick guard would look like instead of the black pick guard. Thank you!

    ...And so I come crawling back.

    Anything new or exciting been going on? I have been cheating on you all at another forum; albeit it's has nothing to do with the automotive industry. But, I just did not fit in there, they did not get my sardonic humor and it was far too squeaky clean. So, am I still OK with all of you all?

    Wacky Races 6: THE RACE THREAD.

    The Rules: You have to participate in order to finish. You cannot be pissed off if someone blows you up, rams you off the road, etc. Remember, this is a silly race, so even your car being a smoldering wreck won't stop you. You can, for example, conjure up a spell, fix your car and continue (Or...

    My Five Year Plan

    As most of you know, I will sometime in the future be divorced from my wife of seven years. I could go on another tangent regarding that, but I will refrain. The upside is that we are still getting along great, and there will be no tug of war for possessions. We moved to the Chicago area...

    Kill, reformat or do nothing?

    Seeing how (in my opinion of course) Top Gear has been making a slow slide into something not so good, if you had to, would you: Kill the show off completely? Reformat it for the next season? Leave it as it is? THIS POLL IS NOT PUBLIC, so feel free to be honest.
