Jan 25th 2013 12:30PM "McMansion" in the real estate and construction business, refers to WAY overpriced and over-built (much larger than the balance of the neighborhood)homes, which are slapped up faster than you can blink an eye at. These homes, while high-priced and usually very large, are usually very cheaply built, with the value being found in the actual property and location.
Feb 14th 2012 9:43AM Also, keep in mind that your handy-dandy GPS unit (or mapquest) doesn't know you are driving an oversized vehicle that doubles as a house! KNOW the height of your vehicle and don't 'push the limits'. Remember, also, that for security and safety reasons, you cannot drive a vehicle with propane tanks through some large tunnels, like the Lincoln Tunnel in NY, no matter WHAT your GPS says! Other tunnels have checkpoints where officials do check to make sure you've disconnected the propane connectors from the tanks. Be prepared. I'm a believer in pop-up camping. It's amazing that so much living space can fit in such a small box for traveling!
Sep 26th 2011 2:29PM Actually, it doesn't matter if it is a 'Bar Tab' she is giving away, or the actual liquor. As long as she doesn't try to SELL the liquor without a license, she is staying legal. My local Harley-Davidson dealership gives away beer at their parties and hog roasts and Bloody Mary's on Sundays. It's perfectly legal. Without a liquor license, they cannot sell them. (they do accept tips for the tending, though)
Jun 6th 2011 3:58PM of COURSE the teacher should NOT have punched the kid in the jaw.... She should have gone straight for the nads, as he put himself in a prime position for 'catching knee'. You can punch a person and they might come back for more. You go for the gonads and they won't be coming back. Remember this.
Mar 22nd 2011 11:02AM ... don't you mean, "beauty is in the eye of the BEER-holder"? All kidding aside, Reese exudes wholsomeness, energy and class. If you can't get past her chin, then you are shallow and think too much of yourself.
Mar 3rd 2011 4:39PM The pilot DID call ahead for paramedics, but as the plane was already on approach for landing, the plane beat the paramedics to the airport! The airline did nothing negligent. They had to wait for the paramedics to get there before moving the victim. Wanna sue? Sue the paramedics for not being everywhere at all times. sheesh. And you wonder what is wrong with people these days; looking to profit from tragic circumstances.
Mar 3rd 2011 4:29PM Oh come on and give me a break. The woman left her seat and was in the restroom for a long time without her son being the least bit concerned until airline personel alerted him. The plane was in the process of landing and regulations state all are to be seated and strapped in. No matter what is written in the article and what the family says, chances are that the woman was already gone when discovered. It's easy to say "someone SHOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING!" after the fact and when you want to sue.
Jan 7th 2011 2:11PM Thats an easy one... How to weigh an elephant:
Pick up elephant in arms, step onto common household scale.
Take reading and subtract your known weight from the total.
Nov 18th 2010 12:39PM I'm with you, Scott; If you perceive airport screening to be "intrusive" and "sexually associated", and refuse the screening, then stay the hell off my flight! There is nothing "sexual" about 'wanding', x-ray or 'back-of-the-hand' pat down screenings, and if you perceive it to be, then you are sorely sexually frustrated. Saying that they touched your snatch lips is just so much bullsh*t and perhaps simply a fantasy of yours. Keep your dark desires to yourself and face reality here; WE are under attack by those who wish to KILL Americans. I WANT to fly safe! Hell, I have nothing to hide; I'll strip down to nothing in that public glass room in the middle of security screening! (perhaps a fantasy of mine! ;-) )
Nov 18th 2010 11:34AM Sorry Jeff... not all of us agree with your way of life. Because of what you wrote, I WILL support the Salvation Army now. Political correctness be damned. I have my own opinions and am entitled to them.
