Ya know, I worked right across the street from that horn back in the '80's -- and, silly me, I remember it sounding like a steamboat. I mainly took exception to the smug tone of the original comment in this thread.
And with that, I will voluntarily withdraw from this vaunted venue for the foreseeable future. Bye!!
Hi Dan -- With the end of ski season I have more time, and pursuing computer pursuits I'm close to my keyboard. Now if I can shake a stalker who says I'm wrong all the time, maybe I'll have more to say.
Janet is the voice of the Rothschilds's, we are still the pawns of the Brits, and Donnie is just the funniest puppet we've had in a while -- like, ever. The Brits don't care if we trash our own country -- our job is to win the world for them. But now we're digressing, thence inviting invasion...
Thanks Russell, I'll take that as affirmation, and sorry I shot torpedoes at your school boat. Sometimes I wonder if I'm not the crazy one.
Good word, narcistic(sp?). As an amateur student of psychology -- that being my college minor -- I find the vast array of personalities here fascinating in their variety. Knowing something about sanity, I can claim no such virtue, am just lucky to be within that wider window they don't institutionalize, though at times I think they should. I definitely don't qualify as what society defines as "normal" [ie average, boring...]. There are as many kinds of weird as there are people. Nonetheless, certain descriptors can apply to certain traits or tendencies -- and in addition to narcistic, in the instant case, we may add insecure, possibly neurotic, maybe a touch of Asperger's... at any rate, not somebody you want to tangle with all night in the forums.
Tip to aspiring students: Study the hard sciences (math, chemistry, physics) and leave the humanities alone (communications, sociology, psychology, philosophy, history, art of any kind, politics, the performing arts, even law) if you want security -- you want constants, and people are WEIRD.
And you are an arrogant blowhard pest who is smarter than everybody else -- nobody is ever right, and here's why -- and always gets the last word in -- mainly because people get sick of arguing with your endless twisted logic -- so it's attrition, not victory. You won't overtly offend anybody, so the moderators can't kick you off, and you can ramble at will. You blind yourself so completely, you think people are buying your crap -- when they're not even reading it. Because of the waste of time that would represent. Not everyone is as lifeless as you are -- most of us find other things to do -- especially with you dominating these forums, ad infinitum et nauseum. Too bad these aren't Reality Forums, where we could vote participants off the island: Your tripe would have vanished long ago.
I'd be crying all the way to the bank.
He knows to stay away from abortion and politics -- thereby arousing the ire of half his admiring public. So those topics are safe.
Anything else -- strap on your rap and get ready to rumble.
The Best of Steamboat needs a new category: "Bloated Windbag" comes to mind...
This article survived, commentary inane, but brief. It wasn't a downer, but recognition of unrewarded effort, reference to the score in facetiousness -- a subtlety not recognized by all...
How do you know what it sounded like?? You weren't even here. Damn troll. Get an acoustics degree, sophisticated equipment, testimony if you can find it, and prove me wrong. No wonder everybody left these forums. Get a life.
I can tell from the comments whether I want to read the article. This one -- not.
Steamboat had a noon whistle from the mid-'80's-early 90's at least, dating back to before I got here. Coulda been a steamboat. Don't believe the neo-"experts" in search of anything and everything they can criticize.
