Bdcochran causes me grief.

    If you didn't know, Bdcochran recently published a novel, "The China Connection." A DVD of classified US information on a nuclear reactor is misplaced by a Chinese spy working out of UCLA. I'm about a third into the book.

    I was reading it on the bus, on the way home from work, and I got so "into" the book I completely missed my bus stop, and had to walk blocks back to my parked car at 10pm. So the book is causing me some grief.

    There's violence, there's sex, there's intrigue, and I can deal with all of those. But there is also a lot of gratuitous dancing :devildance: which sometimes makes me a little queasy. So consider yourself forewarned.

    At least that is the right way to be caused grief by him.

    I did not know we had another author in out midst. Thanks!

    Link to book?

    The only book by that name I saw on Amazon was published in 2003.

    Thanks

    I do!! So let me guess whether you'll attribute that to "bravery" or "stupidity."

    Hmm, hmm.

    I'm guessing you'll go with stupidity.

    :freak:

    Didn't you see that thread I did on a Public Transportation Bag? It ended badly, in the usual way, with forumites calling me a coward (for making a cheap throwdown bag), and a fool (for living in CA).

    A number of threads I've started here, end with people either calling me a fool or a coward. I'm getting used to it.

    So far this thread is going OK.

    I think it is a good idea - that is all you need to know.

    Let's not get this thread off topic.

    I think there is a lot of perspective that can be mined on these boards.

    More power to ya for taking public transportation in CA. I won't call you a fool or whatever but it's something I know I wouldn't do without a lot of firepower and backup.

    Kindled.

    You are a fool and a coward, and let everyone who believes that continue to underestimate you. I think what grates some people is that you openly search for an understanding, instead of their answer.

    I ride public transportation whenever the weather isn't appropriate for me to ride the motorcycle. I even ... GASP ... ride with people as an HOV dummy. (This is when people pull up to your bus stop and offer to drive to your park and ride so they can take the HOV lanes.)

    LOL, thank you sir! Much appreciated. Someone who understands me at last.

    Here in LA, a popular trick is to have an actual blow-up doll type dummies ride in the passenger seat, to gain access to the HOV lane!!! Dual-duty I suppose. Haven't tried that trick myself, as the wife won't allow it.

    They were selling actual life like dummies, not blow up dolls, to place in your car. The marketing was tailored to females to give the illusion that they aren't alone so they won't be victimized by criminals, but yeah, people abused it.
