    I just didn't want to share with the riff raff.

    I withdrew my inflated $100m offer and then made a side deal to snap it up for $3.1m. Closed this afternoon.

    Dammit. Well, Belize still has islands. Problem is they are all about 2 feet above sea level and in hurricane path. Pedo Island was safe from hurricanes and most of its structures under ground.

    Prepper is trolling the 'what Mazda should I buy thread' because he *says* he's looking for a miata for his wife, but we all know he wants to get a rainbow paint job because it's what he wants to drive to his remote seagull guano factory in ptown

    LOL it is true I really want it for myself.

    Thing is last year I aleady bought my wife a Charger. But she says it is too big so I am the one driving it. She thinks the smaller Miata would be more to her liking. Plus, she wants coordinated vanity plates. My Charger has my name for the vanity plate, and the Miata would have her name for the plate. Park them side by side, take selfies with them, then post on Facebook. Hundreds of likes. Winning.

    Prepper's ring tone is the Zoom-Zoom-Zoom song. He often plays it for his birds of destruction.

    It is still better than your Baby Shark ring tone. No one wants to hear that! Ten seconds of that song cause everyone around to have brain damage for weeks.

    I'll have to play that when I am not in the office to see what that is. Hopefully it is better than any song from The Wiggles. I had to visit a friend's house where The Wiggles DVD was baby sitting the children. Unbearable!!

    OH! Well those were actual rats. Not children. Here is one of them. This is not a baseless lie... This pic is my brother in law with a rat they caught in our Philippines house today. Notice the rat is bigger than the dog.

    Serious question here - I honestly know nothing of the area. Is that thing marketable or do they consider it vermin like here?

    If I saw a mouse that big in my house there would be a sudden cessation of my postings because I'd perish of a heart attack.

    It is usually considered vermin, as they are everywhere and will live in your roof or walls etc., crap all over everything, chew holes in your walls and floors, eat your food and spread disease. I hear there are people who will eat it, but certainly none of my family. I think rat eating is mainly a China thing. We're actually in the process now of tearing down their old house and building a new all concrete and steel house, largely because of rats destroying anything made of wood. And, termites. Billions of effing termites. The termites have literally dissolved all the main support beams throughout the house. Pro tip: Never build a house made of coconut wood in a termite-prone area. Actually, never build anything at all, ever, out of coconut wood. It's bad stuff.

    My wife was texting me while I was at work that her brother caught a big rat. And I'm like "Meh.... yup there are rats there, what's the big deal". Then she sent me this pic. Then I burst out laughing in the office and had to run around to people in the office all like "OMG you gotta see this!"

    Alright, I'm finally home and I played part of it. I couldn't get past 60 seconds. Wow, painful. I misread what you said and thought you said Eat Bulaga, which is a very popular daytime TV show in the Philippines with a very catchy theme song.

    I honestly don't know why people don't build in concrete. Just pour those basements walls taller. Thermal mass and better defenses against the inevitable no knocks.

    Ok, back to the lies... (if they ARE lies...)

    I heard Prepper's lunch truck, affectionately called "The Roach Coach" by locals (although in fairness that's because he also deals weed from the truck) has added "Chicken Fingers" to the Squab menu. Imported daily from the Philippines. I tried one and the chicken didn't taste quite... like... chicken...

    Well I tried to warn you that they were chicken FINGERS. It always amazes me people assume they are getting cuts of breast meat, deep fried in delicious batter, with this mysterious red sweet sauce dumped all over them. No, I meant what I said.... FINGERS. I go down to the butcher at the grocery store and ask them if I can have all the chicken feet they cut off, and they give me tons of them. Then, I cut off the "fingers"... these little toes with claw at the end... one by one. Then, I cook them up in a "patty" that's nothing but chicken fingers. And filler. Don't ask what is in the filler... just imagine you're eating 100% fingers of chicken.

    prepper is shopping for a new custom PC and is overly impressed by the speed of his existing 40MB SMD which is powered by a Phillipine rat on a wheel

    LOL no the joke's on all of you. I'm still using my TI 99/4a with cassette tape data system (and extended basic cartridge!), and my Commodore 128 with 5.25" floppies. 40MB? No one needs more than 1MB or whatever this floppy disk holds... I never reached the limit so I have no idea what it is.

    Here they are:

    Oh and ignore the appearance of them being unused in my attic... I'm just doing some rearranging and they'll be set up again shortly.

    I save the boxes in case I need to return them.

    Prepper should trade up to the Tandy® 1000. It can even make color pie charts.

    The Tandy 1000 was pretty cool and I did lots of drooling over the annual Radio Shack catalog because of that one. Or was it the swimwear section of the annual Sears catalog. I forget.

    Regardless, I'm trying to remember if the TI was bought at Caldor, or at Lechmere, in case I need to return it. It would be embarrassing if I showed up at the wrong store.
