My truck can tow a space shuttle.

Are you new?

Toyota bought some publicity with the shuttle-towing stunt. Tundra-towing-Shuttle video.

Steve's not new, we joined at the same time. He is giving me a hard time like friends do. Of course, I don't know that his 3/4 ton brand new truck could pull the space shuttle.

With more posts then obsessive-compulsive me, I knew he's not new, though clearly only just over 1/4th as crazy about AIRForums as you.

Yea, Gene, your truck is what you said, so show us. Who knows what was done to THE truck that actually did tow the space shuttle.

They used a stock truck.

If I go to the various places they have shuttles with my tow chain, I don't think they'll let me try. However, as soon as I get wheels on the Queen Mary, I'll tow that.

I wonder if we are all obcom? Meds please.

I think anyone with more than 2500 posts is at least suspect of being obsessive compulsive...

Ok.

a) my truck IS the space shuttle and

b) I don't have 2500 posts but I fear I may be obsessive/compulsive as I check this forum 2500 times a day searching for those aluminum nuggets of wisdom. I also REALLY wish I were camping right now!!!

Your lower post count could be an indication that you may be merely obsessive, without having the compulsion to write about it.

Then you will become obsessive/compulsive about find internet access so you can satisfy your obsessive /compulsive need to be on the forum.

When you start bumping your own threads, or just posting "yes" or "x2", then you really have a problem.

Now that we're spending about half our time at another house we are remodeling and have no internet there yet, life is becoming very strange. I go into town with my iPad to update things, but I hate "typing" on it, and ignore the Forum for several days. I have handled it pretty well, but stresses are building and I may have to go to rehab. It is a good place to me celebs and politicians.

Now to go post the same thing on the other EB thread, and maybe start a few more.

Gene
