I'm 27, all of my friends that are married are either miserable, or on the short track for divorce. When my current girlfriend, (3 years), brings up the subject, I'm at a loss.

I have a good friend in Texas - before he got married, he and his very cool girlfriend agreed that there was a seven-year expiration on the vows, renewable if they both agreed, no hard feelings. They've been through two renewals and have two gorgeous kids. They still joke about the next renewal coming up... or do they? Wish I'd thought of that - seems to be working out well for them.

Used to do a lot of measuring of buildings. So bought one of those "sonic" measuring tapes when they first came out. Very sad. (It's still in my tool box but available RIGHT NOW to anyone who will send me a SSAE!)

Also, I have a $300 Cycle Ops for mounting my hybrid bike on its rear axle to elevate it off the floor for that indoor workout that you always wanted! No use yet.

Marriage? I have been addicted to same woman for 25 years, girlfriend and wife.

I bought a hot tub and built a sunroom around it. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Now, it hardly gets used; it leaks, wastes electricity and requires cleaning and expensive chemicals. To remove it, I'd either have to cut it up or take out a wall.

Rich, I only sail sober when I have to, as in Too broke to buy alcohol vs go sailing!!!! Can you find me a Professional type that isn't afraid to PitchPole a Cat, I don't do it as much as I used to, but you never can tell, I always get a little excited when it happens, that glance at sail trim and then, the "How the hell did I get in the water" thought????? If you can find me one sign me up, I want one, hell, I'll take two if they promise to get along. I can cook too!!!!! P.M. Me with address' and phone numbers, we're close enough that if CalTrans insists on chains over Buckhorn Summit I can still get over the hill to meet them!!!!

Jake, what didn't you like about the RC helo? I've always wanted to get one.

There is an awesome RC airplane/glider that is RTF, styrofoam and cheap. Like around $80. I need to go get another one, there was so much glue and wooden splints in my first one it wouldn't fly hardly at all anymore. I had some severe learning problems, the elevator controls were backwards from the gas RC plane I had as a youth.

I was really starting to get good with it and although I had a known issue with the electronics causing a short and sudden altitude change, I was doing touch and goes from my driveway, over the fence, and in my backyard. Naturally while over the fence, it dropped suddenly and just barely caught the fence before I could react. The dance of the death chicken ensued as it flailed helplessly on the ground.

those things tend to disintegrate on impact... saw one crash once. You need eye protection no matter how far away you are.

JAKE! I've got all kinds of spare parts for that at a just for you price. Of course the sister ship could be had as well. I never use it.

Several stocks. You have to know when to hold them, and when to "sold" them. Missed the second part.
