so anyways back to our regularly scheduled program. I made a post a few days ago asking for opinions on area to have meet and type of venue. Some people would like to keep it to PMs. I asked for PMs to talk about it and I have received ZERO PMs. We only have a little over 6 weeks to get everything planned so we should get to it.


First question: what is the "meet" - lunch? Dinner? Both? Presumably those of us going to the Mob Museum need to meet somewhere first, especially so I can see who I get in on my discount (I can bring four "guests" from outside of Nevada in at the reduced "Nevada resident" rate).

Considering how anal the mods are about banning for offensive language I am surprised the only reaction to a bunch of "your sisters anal loves...." which put some very objectionable images in my head gets its own thread.

So describing how other posters sisters get it up the anal is now officially pc here?

Im quite certain I have seen bans for less offensive imagery and if thread hijacking isnt here as well... hmmm!

Thread hijacking
Offensive imagery AND language
Personal insults

Results in your very own thread!?

You get banned for saying you beat your wife and you get your own personal thread for saying your sister likes getting pegged up the whazoo?



Your objection is noted. I'm trying public shaming, because I'm quite tired of all the rude sexual references getting dropped into various threads. It worked in medieval England and America, perhaps it will help around here. Perhaps not. But let's take this back to the topic at hand - further complaints would be better placed in the discussion about suspension list thread.

I will be doing lunch before mob museum so I think meeting before for lunch would be good.

The main get together is usually dinner. Maybe early lunch or even breakfast, mob museum somewhat early to give time if people need to have some time before dinner. Or could make it do they run into each other. I am up for anything.

Aren't the buses my "gimmick"? Well, except for when I rented a car for a couple of days back in 2014 (in part so I could get to Them - er, The M). Still no bus service there.

Me and my Wife recently got stuck after blowing a head-gasket on my truck(for the 2nd time in a month). No cell service on my phone. Eventually I Had to get the car towed to the nearest town 20 miles away($185). I Missed my court appearance for a ticket I wanted to fight(now ill probably just pay it off) No car rentals were available and there was a waiting list for 2 days to get back to Vegas and it was questionable if they would even let me drop the rental off in Vegas. No Lyft Drivers available, A cab driver said no thanks. I really had no other options than to take a bus at like 5am the next morning. I wasn't all that bad since they had Wifi and a charger available(I still wouldn't want to be running the most feared well known secretive AP team on the east coast via the bus system.) It's going to be a pain in the ass getting my truck back to Vegas. All this forced me to buy another car and get AAA.

I can only imagine ZK would have thrown himself under that bus if that all had happen to him.

p.s. People need to sit in their assigned seats, we pied extra so we could sit next to each other.

If you drove in nyc or to jersey you would probably change your mind

At any rate if I make it out there for the spring fling I will be flying.

Though not in a helicopter and not first class even though I can afford it. If the object is to get me from A-B I could never stomach paying a couple grand more for a few extra inches to still get me to the same destination

But thats just me
