    Having to choose between footless rabbits and legless frogs is daunting.
    Perhaps a toss of the coin is warranted.

    After some careful ponderment, I propose a dancing content between the footless rabbits and legless frogs to determine, once and for all, is the more pitiable creature.

    Nominations for the contest music are now open.

    It's become painfully obvious that you've never attended any of Tous' lectures as far as knowing the differences between casing and a case as well as never having been part of an audience during any one of his world renowned symposia on understanding the major differences between the pine cone and the PIN code.

    My good man, please educate yourself.

    Not only did Danika Patrick win the pole for the 2013 Daytona 500, but she was also voted the best looking NASCAR driver in a bikini.

    Although her car's owner, Tony "smoke" Stewart, has never won a Daytona 500 race, from his rookie year up till now he had always won the "best looking NASCAR driver in a bikini" contest. When reached for comment, smoke commented, "I hated that title and that's part of the reason I brought her to this team. The other part is that she drives better than me too."

    If I were to educate myself, and therefore achieve competence, then people would just dump more work on me. I prefer my current status.

    Your pillory derived from achieving competence is merely another part of your lot in life being a marsupial; however, if the aforementioned competence were achieved, it might supplement your apple-polishing ways with regards to your employer. :tongueout:

    Fear not, good sir.

    Despite that we oft disgaree and you are, on rare occasion, a danged numpty, I would never stoop to accusing you of competence.

    There are things that a gentleman just doesn't do.

    Back to the Apollo start of this thread...

    The shuttles which took the walkers to the moon surface were actually landed by dropping an anchor and reeling in the cable. At the same time they were unreeling a cable connecting the lander to the Apollo capsule which was in geosynchronous orbit above the landing site. When it was time to return the lander to the Apollo, they simply cranked it back up.

    Look pal, this is MAKE up a fact, not tell the truth about the Apollo missions thread.

    You see, I in fact worked for Zebco during the late 50's and early 60's, you know, Zebco, the same company that invented the the devices that cranked the lunar lander down and up.

    Although I don't like to brag, I will say that I solved some very unique challenges with respect to the setting the correct drag amount on the cranking devices so as to not compromise the specially created snap swivel connected to the Command Module.

    Matter of fact, if it weren't for the Apollo program, I dare say we wouldn't have the stainless steel, ball bearing snap swivels that are so common nowadays.

    So the truth will out.
    Peace Warrior is older than Dragoon44. :shocked:

    In fact, everyone knows of Zebco's contribution to the manned space program. It is a commonly-known fact that as a contingency if the lunar module engine did not fire, Michael Collins had a Zebco reel on a big ol' pole that he would have used to cast down to the lunar surface, hook the lander and reel them in.

    See, I didn't know any others who frequent this thread knew the truth about the landers. I thought I could tell the truth in such a manner that it seemed a lie. But I was found out...

    It was a worthy effort. Now, if you can tell a lie in such a manner that it seems a truth, you will have hit the perfecta!
