Sorry, Celtic, I was wrong. I thought it was $100 after a double down. Forget that whole $125 bit. Maybe you paid in two installments of $25.

I didn't get as much juice on that election as I would have liked but enough.

Just let me know if you paid your wager to oc.net back then.

I found the post celticfan made of his bet, but its on the Politics board.
Yeah, I quoted it. There is nothing against linking to the private boards. At least enough people do it that I assume it ok.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can link. You just can't quote. People link to them on the quotable quotes thread all the time.

Hey, I heard you are playing D-League basketball now. Congratulations!

Did you ever settle our bet?

Thanks.
I'm working at a bakery as a pastry chef...

What bet?
You are kidding right?
No.
Why did you have to edit no?

Dude, you are going to make me go all debt collection here? Think back to a certain election. I said I would trust you would make good on your debt then you melted down or something and became a Buddhist Airman and I never saw any funds hit oc.net in the amount agreed upon.

Given the interest, let's say $125 to oc.net and call it even.

Then maybe I am wrong and all the above is a figment of my imagination.
Wait, what debt?

I don't even have money to spare

Wait.

From a supposed 6 figure soccer contract to some German team, to staying in college, then going Air Force, then now a cupcake designer.

This sounds rather nuts, but save the macadamia please.
Great to be back with all the self-righteous folk here.

I go discharged from the military months ago due to retrolisthesis in my back. Laugh at it all you want dude, but it isn't funny.

The Welsh? No.

Celtic FC is a soccer team in Scotland. It was founded in 1888.

Yes, that is the official rule. You can post as many links as you want to posts on the Private Forum, since only those who have already been granted access and have permission to post there can follow the links--if you don't have permission to access the Private Forum, you'll get an error message if you try to follow one of the links. What you are NOT permitted to do is quote a post from the Private Forum such that the text of the post appears here on the Public Forum, for that defeats the purpose of having a separate Private Forum.

How's your "Happy Birthday"?
LOL! Dude, what is the most insane thing you ever wrote, painted, iced, whatever?
Once, this dude brought me a beaten up, smashed, discounted heart-shaped cake.

From a different store.

The day after valentine's day.

At night, right before closing time.

Don't remember what I wrote on it, but if a picture's worth a thousand words, cake is the product of a thousand tears. Who am I to disagree?

A month ago I suggested that if we were able to push through about 700 posts/day we'd finally have a month cross the 20,000 post milestone.  October disappointed, but November has promise still.  If we average just about 733/day for the rest of this week we can reach the milestone.
As my post count shows, I obviously have no problem "helping" things along in this respect  ;D.  Now, maybe I've missed it, but why the goal-orientation regarding achieving a specified number of posts each month?  What happens as a result of reaching a particular "milestone"?
Nothing specific; just creating a goal for its own sake.  That is how this thread started in days of yore...

Hey bro! What's up with the UT hat? Did that BAMA beat down of your Cajuns drive you to Texas? Maybe you believe the ridiculous rumors about Saban going to the Longhorns.  ;)

But all kidding aside, it's good to see you back.  :)


Selam
I started pulling for a team I liked rather than what my friends and family liked haha I love the state of Texas, plus there is so much history and tradition. Even though their last appearance in the NC Alabama beat them bad. :(

I'm not going to lie, Saban at UT would be awesome...but I love Mack Brown.
History and Tradition...

BAMA will welcome you with open arms.  ;)

History and tradition? In the USA?

No, I'm honestly curious. I've thought the US is probably the most anti-traditionalist society there is.

Getting back to the "random" part of the thread: I went to the dentist yesterday and got two of the four crowns he's pushing on me. I was in the chair for 2 hours and 15 minutes and this morning my mouth feels like the Tooth Fairy beat me up from the inside out. Ouch. That is all.

I guess the word can be defined that way too. I had something a bit different in mind though. I don't know much about American society but from outsiders perspective it seems more like revolutionary than traditional country.

I went out with a romanian co-worker last night . he was already wasted by the time we set out. we randomly met this romanian barmaid , she gave us free beer, which was a pleasant surprise on various levels, at which point my friend was past wasted. to the point where he was kicked out of the bar.

I still think it would be nice to have a get-together here in Western PA; I'd be willing to help fund it, but I cannot help with the planning.  If you come, I'll buy you some pizza, no milestone required.

Is that an open invitation, Father?  Don't know when we can make it up there but we'll happily join you and even split the cost of the pizza!!  Hopefully in the not too distant future we'll be in position to find a suitable rock to retire to and live under in your neck of the woods and we'll inflict ourselves upon you then  ;D.

They are very much about history and tradition in the Southeast and Southwest. I can't speak for other parts of the country, but I think the "Yankees" tend not to care for tradition as much.

I know exactly what you mean. I can certainly tell you my Cajun relatives have plenty of 200-year-old traditions, like my neighbours back in England.

Sounds like a place to visit sometimes. "Tradition" is not the first thing that comes to my mind when thinking of Southern US. First associations are more like former slaves, Baptists, funny dialect and barbeque.

Everyone has stereotypes.  Even traditional ones.

Yet spend time in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Thibodaux, New Orleans, or Houston and you'll run into more Catholics than Baptists. Go to Dallas-Fort Worth and you'll run into Methodists, go to Virginia and there are Anglicans, etc.

Everyone has a funny dialect to someone else, technically.

There are so many parts of the world that had slavery, the fact that The South is associated with it far more than others is unfortunate.

Is that a recent phenomenon? Culture of those areas might be Baptist despite the number if the history of the area is Baptist.

Not that I'd know pretty much anything about America. Just thinkin aloud.

Not at all, south Louisiana is historically Roman Catholic...it was a French colony (and parts Spanish). You are talking about a state symbolised by the Fleur-di-Lis, and many parishes are named after saints. :p

Many traditions here are based on Catholicism, like Mardi Gras. lol

I mean, the Cajuns and Creoles (the native peoples of south Louisiana) are very Catholic. Some Cajun families still disown family members who convert to Protestantism due to the persecution their ancestors faced.

Even the Cajun and Creole families who are now Protestant still have Catholic culture and traditions.
