    When your pants are dry enough, if you must!

    No, they don't.

    Not much if you're over 55. For some reason gravity becomes a stronger force. I think that Issac Newton was wrong with regards to them apples! :confused:

    I think Matty is trying to say he doesn't have that problem. He just keeps them tucked in his wading boots

    ^ with all respect, “what ya know son” applies here! Wait about 10-12 years, then take a nice deep bath and come here to answer me this: Do they sink or do they float?

    Exactly! Certain empirical knowledge only comes with longer age ;)

    Pleasure to be here, Casinostocks.

    I'm not a drugs abusist, so I'll skip the uppers and downers and just suffer the reality of casino investment with a clear head. My goal is for the $20 in stocks to turn enough of a profit to fund a 1978 Datsun pickup truck (king cab), within a month or two. I was thinking of buying some stocks in that casino with the giant pyramid, because it's very shiny and people buy shiny things. What say ye?

    Mecca Mecha, do you think if I had such magical powers and insight, I'd be lounging in here bantering with the best of them? ;)

    I used to own a 1978 Datsun PU way back in the day... It wasn't a king cab but nevertheless a friggin Datsun engine power by a sewing machine that stalled out like it was a diesel, running on gas! All really weird and it doesn't make sense, I know... The crap I used to see from Japanese and So. Koreans and compared to what they produce now, is like they got blueprints of some very advanced alien technology!

    As for your $20: I'm best friends with Sheldon Adelson. I'll call him right now to see if he can do me a favor by putting that to use in his Macau Venetian casino. That's the ticket, I reckon :)

    How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore
    and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a
    forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence,
    impoverished, in squalor,
    grow up to be a hero and a scholar?

    Sort of. without a liner they can shrink and swell overtime. And with extended use they can get gummed up or smoothed out and eventually need to be sanded rough again.

    It is however almost unbreakable.

    @Casinostocks are you just gonna let NTM answer questions in your thread like that?

    Yes, absolutely!

    The reason: ACSAQ thread is a very small and gratuitous statehood within the much larger and absolutely purposeful Carothers CPK fiefdom.

    ETA: however I reserve the right to monitor anyone's answers including those of Nathan's!

    Not personally but I am sure that I can. I'm just oozing with talents my man!

    I believe that there was one incident whereby Don slipped while on one of his exotic hikes and fell on the side where he was packing his CPK with TT handle scales, damaging one side of those scales.

    Well, you're here bantering rather than shoveling coal out of a mine 12 hours a day or running machine tools, so your casino investments must have been good ones.

    When running properly, a Datsun pickup is a wonder, reminiscent of a Datsun 510 or 240z but in truck form. The truck will be getting an upgrade turbo diesel engine, anyway.

    Excellent news about the investment opportunity. I'll have my people call your people, so that $20 can get two zeroes added to it in short order.

    I think those were black canvas, and he got a few scratches on them but decided to keep them on his knife because of fond memories of a hike with his nieces, if I recall correctly. o_O :thumbsup::D @donscpoo
