Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Scallops and shrimp did not go over well. Ended up with a chef's salad, sort of. We had French fries on the side and ice cream for desert. He's 6'3 " and 145 lbs. I's not like he eats a lot. He does go through at least a half gallon of milk a day. But I used to do that so I can relate. There is something very satisfying about feeding a hungry kid.

You make it sound like a bad thing...

Seriously though, what does HTFU stand for? I've seen it a few times now and for the life of me can't figure this one out.

Really?

Try this:
Google Chopper HTFU. I believe all will be revealed.
I tried that and it works. Watch the video.

You can't sanitize Australian slang.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Well Bob, I have to agree that your web explanation of HTFU provides a much better understanding of the term than mine. I did use the acronym search site a lot when my kids were younger; I had no idea what they were texting me.

That gives you the television version, not a real definition.

Urban dictionary is better.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
