This isn't a water cooler. This is a 24 hour all-you-can eat buffet with hard liquor and amphetamines.




That's funny

Winter and Road Construction.
In Minnesota, there is a pothole season too.
Plenty of time here too, although I'd venture to say someone taking in the whole Thread might take a bit more time than just the posts here.
It is easy to get sidetracked into other threads which spawned some of these cooler comments.
Or into calculating the velocity of the famed European Swallow, or terminal velocity of some of Jeff's weapons cache.

I can see a day when PASS has a Thread Jeopardy Contest.
Quote and who said it first, or fill in the missing word.

Yeah, we have the same season in Michigan. As for the European Swallow, you know it's a question of weight ratios when you consider the weight of a coconut. Jeff's pork chops are highly variant, depending on model. Finally, this is what some of us consider a water cooler, no matter that's being served.


I think you need to use the quotes when you refer to it like that then.

Hey guys, want to go down to the "water cooler"?


I'd hate to misquote someone. It could lead to technical discussion.
Which is bad etiquette on the Thread.
It might be better to leave the hint, so the reader can search google for the source and draw their own conclusions.
This will give them a more rounded background into context around the subject.
Kind of like Interview Questions - do they know just the answer to the question, or can they express why this is the answer.


Mosquito someone? Is that biting them and giving them malaria?


I would never use a reference to our state bird in such an inflammatory manner.
Maybe a Deer Tick and Lyme Disease though.
Glad that July was dry. In June, with all the rain, the misquotes were getting bad.

Are your mosquitoes as big as birds? They are out here.

Small children can be carried away.
The Loon is just tourism, otherwise no one would come to visit.
Not worth swatting unless you can kill 3 or 4 with one swat.
100% DEET - stains the cap, but helps some.

White Water State Park is the only spot in the state where it is rumored you can find relief.
Although the water at the beach is lucky to hit 70 degrees.
Does make for some interesting viewing for first timers taking a dip when it's 90 out.

Country music is grounded in three chords and the truth.


To those who still enjoy classic rock, those three chords are painful.
Now I can't understand why I don't enjoy country music as much as humor.
Thanks for confusing me again.

But country music is no longer country music. It is now classic rock.

Does that mean it will be Heavy Metal in 5 years?

Or will it swing towards industrial?

They already tried rap and that was bad enough to kill a dead man.

This thread is our water cooler. It is a place where we can let our hair down...


Easy for you to say. I assume you have hair.


Why yes I do. In fact, it hasn't been cut since I returned to Afghanistan at the end of February.


Beard too? That's called "going local!"


Actually, I have a decent electric razor now and haven't allowed myself to go completely local.

Did you mean "local" or "loco" in shaving? Personally, I couldn't stand it.
