    I've heard of that. I think it was featured in Odd News or something.

    I've also heard about the fraternal twins named Mal-e and Fem-al-e. "I didn't have to name them, the hospital did already."

    I think the movie Idiocracy should be required viewing. Unfortunately, I think the people most in need of understanding it won't.

    Possible, but then there is the influence of the parents/family that would think that is a good name for their child. I think it is a combination.

    I firmly believe that the 'commentary' is what keeps the boards at the ratios that they are at (generalizing here) of 10% posting, 90% lurking. However there are those times where you can get into the archives and pull real nuggets of info out that someone said weeks, months, years ago. Plus you get a feel for who can actually help vs who's blowing smoke.

    I joined a forum a month ago so that I could view the archives, and when I posted a comment - I discovered that mine was the first post on the entire site in 3 months. It may not be dead, but I dunno if anything can bring it back.

    I don't believe there's a limit, but I may be wrong. I know you can get at least one a year, so that depends on how long you live. When I get a chance I'll see if I can find out.

    Has anyone ever had a problem with 8 - 10 splits? I left 4 in one game and got a lucky messenger to save me from a 5th. Is there something I can do in my setup or is it possible the pinsetter was not placing pins correctly?

    Well time to add another rant. I post my ball cleaner review over on allbowling.com and start getting a string stupid comments and heaven forbid I had typo! instead of striking I had "strikinjg" so we quote it and have to point it out with big text, bold it and color it purple

    So I just deleted the post, because when that starts. No one cares what you posted good or bad, it becomes all about the remarks posted or posting new ones.

    Well I hadn't posted over there in a while guess won't again.


    , lol lol lol also heres some simley's and lol's to show "I'm just kidding" because doing those shows everyone that you don't mean what you just said.

    Right handed Stroker, high track ,about 13 degree axis tilt. PAP is located 5 9/16” over 1 3/4” up.Speed ave. about 14 mph at the pins. Medium rev’s.High Game 300, High series 798
