“I thought you were an MD, not a PhD Budda Bear. I know that was you in your white gown on the gynecology floor at the hospital.”
“What a quiz!!!!!!
“Gosh, it's amazing any of survive out there w/out some of that knowledge.”
“any of "us" survive.
oops. just got back from happy hour. lol”
“cant beleive you all missed the hydration question.....”
what the heck is a surgeon's knot (in relation to this)?
ohmagawd, it's a wonder I've survived all these years, thinking Elvis was alive!
“A surgeons knot, tied at the top of your foot, will keep your boot snug against your foot, applying thr pressure on the top of foot, while still allowing you to apply pressure to the ankle, which decreases your chance of heal slippage.”
“I tie my boot that way... the guy at Benchmark didn't tell me it was called a Surgeons Knot. Oh, the nerve.”
“Where are the questions to the Ph.D of Love himself, Buddha Bear??!”
“BB - I would really like to know your resource for the A-Frame vs. Dome tent. I'm not doubting you since you are the professor. But, I was always under the impression that a flatter roof would be more prone to snow build-up. And, a dome is going to have a flatter roof than an A-Frame. So, what makes the dome better for snowy conditions. Is it the poles?”
“A frames dont have any support in the middle so are prone to sagging
my guess at least....”
“I thought A-Frames only had support in the middle. Maybe I have my tent designs confused?”
“Tarabull, are you thinking of a pyramid/teepee type of tent? Like the Betamid perhaps?”
“....That should have been Megamid...”
“No, skully, altho I would believe the 'Mid would be pretty good at shedding snow.
I was thinking of, for example, a Eureka Timberline... A-Frame tent. Seems it would be a good snow-shedder.
p.s. sassafras "concurs". she just said so on AIM. :-) lol”
“Well, the Meg is usually sold as a 4-season tent.”
“I've used mine in snow... but there wasn't any accumulation. I haven't been able to test it that way. But, the 'mids sure held up in heavy winds at the Roaring Plains. I'm pretty sure they're bomb-proof. lol”
“Yeah, we haven't really used ours in snow yet either. Recently someone posted a thread about using theirs in snow, though. Pretty sweet!”
Dear Professor Buddha Bear....
“Because of your recent exploits and because of Crazy Mikes complete devotion to Ms CMB's wants and whims, my wife wants to quit work and stay home.
I am not sure how a full time house wife will be able to keep up with my breakneck pace. I mean I can't hardly drive home to pick her up before going out to slam a few pints, that will be logistically taxing on me.
What should I do?”
“This reminds of some spam I just received: Discover the Mysteries of Life.
Hey... if Montel say she's legit, who am I to cast asparagus?”
Just turn your home into the neighborhood Bar.
Problem solved. :-)”
“good idea, build a bar in your basment”
“maple, maybe treebeard would let you stay home ? :)”
Like the Army tries to do
“Keep the supply lines short.”
“When happy hour at Chilli's ???
Will Jello Fog be there?”
“With advice like this, who need Professor Buddha Bear.
I am going to draft the plans tonight.”
The best thing to do is to make sure she keeps working. In fact, you should quit your job and stay at home, making her the one who has to drive back and forth so you can go to Hooters.
Oh, and lie a lot too. About everything.
Dr. Pudenda Bear, Ph.D.”
I'm gonna build me a bar in the back of my car
And drive myself to drink
“If you do make a bar outta your home, ya gotta have one of those old Frig's with beer tap and 1/2 keg inside!! Those are classic!
Best of luck on Endeavor :-)”
Now that was funny ....ROTFLMAO!!”
“be careful about what you say about drinking, bacpac will call you names!LOL”
LISTEN TO THE F$%*&CKING DOCTOR !!(LINE FROM BILLY CRYSTAL - "ANALYZE THIS")”
“Pudenda Bear is my new hero.”
“He said he lies, duh?
Oh, and lie a lot too. About everything.
Dr. Pudenda Bear, Ph.D."
“I didn't even see that part darlin,,,,I stopped at the point of quitting work and hanging out at Hooters.”
“dont call me darlin if I have to work.”
“cotton, did you take chili to hooters?”
“when? By the way no. I did the hooters dance for him in his office.”
“Dear Dr Bear,
I have a friend who is going camping with some people he only kind of knows and one of them is a compulsive liar. Should my friend tell the liar about the group plan to beat the liar into a pulp on arrival or just go along with the plan?
“umm what trip would that be?”
“Snafu -- Ya can't beat the classics! <G>”
“Sounds like Winterfest and BB WILL be getting an ass whoopin!”
“That's it. I'm going to cancel all of my upcomming trips.”
“BB won't be getting no asswhoopin'. he may hand out one here and there, but hain't no left coaster gonna give him one.”
“LOL @ walkindude!”
