it's funny only because i'm very used to people telling me i got lucky, was given something, bore a certain way, knew someone....yada yada yada...anything but hard work or determination. so bash on me some more if it makes you feel any better about yourself.

Joey,

No one doubts your dedication or perserverence. At least I do not. I just ask that you go back and read some of your "old" posts and keep in mind that perception is reality. Although your intended message may have been positive and filled with good intentions. Certainly, what has been perceived is far different. If I make it to a race this season or a poker run for that matter, and you are there, I would love the opportunity to sit and chat like gentlemen and friends, watch some bikini's and share a few laughs.

Try not to read into things to much and keep in mind that you go this way once, so make the most of it!

Fred,

You are still cracking me. Each time more and more.

thanks shane...you are correct...perception does account for a lot here on OSO...this is exactly why most racers, officials, and manufactures stay away...sometimes ya just can't win...

just like i don't know how many times i have said that our results only reflect on us.only us...not any manufactures or rules! EVEN if we did finish and place well...there WERE mistakes that we made in set-up...every time those engines are fired we need to learn something...if not??? then it's not even worth turning the ignitions on!

shane i look forward to chat'n with ya at a race...just let me know when?

Best thread on OSO.

Joey,
I have not seen the video, nor was I there. Was the skeg that broke on the inside of your turn, or the outside of the turn?
(Which direction were you turning, Port, or SB, and which skeg broke, Port, or SB?)

Fred...... You are out of control...put the mouse down...and back slowly away from the computer......take a deep breath and exhale into a paper bag.....now again....one more time.....there now......isn't that better?

This is by far the funniest, most intense, sincere, thin skinned, redundant, original, frivolous, factual, emotional, thick headed, humbling, egotistical, brilliantly stupid thread I've seen on OSO.
All in all a pretty good effort.

Now it's time to leave Audacity alone.......if this continues it could do permanent damage.

T2x......drying the tears from his eyes and getting off the floor after falling down laughing at Too Old's creative forays.
