stoop'n pritty far, a ''jack wagon'' really........realllyyy!
Alssso guysss who don't get the jokesss.
Hey don't get you panties in a bunch. Ribbin' is roddin'.
It has been part of the community as long as there have been rodders. No one means anything personal by it, well sometimes they do, but for the most part if they aint talkin' about your mom it is just horse play.
Oh come on, calm down. This is the HAMB not a love in, that's down the hall. Guys are helping you and guys are ribbing you. The more you get pist the less they'll help.
More the "mamby pamby land"
Can I get that in a tag topper?
And the more they will rib as a rule.
Personally I think that a good ribbin' deserves a good tongue stickin'.
id rather just have the info.............if thats ok!!
What doesn't cost has no value. The HAMB is like fish soup, you gotta eat the fish and spit out the bones.
P&B - we gotta get some HAMB fortune cookies made up with your wisdom inside. Brilliant!
Hey not to offend anyone here(beaner) were not all old! lol Im 23 my self, and I have taken my fair of shit from the senior members of the "hot rod community" but I have learned to deal with it and not take it to heart. Relax bro. Grab a beer and join the party, u might learn something along the way and make some friends along the way too. We are all in this together. We love to help each other out, its just that some of us like to joke around a bit, some more than others.
Hey wait a minute, I resemble that remark.
I don't think it is an age thing at all, some of the "younger" fellas get of some of the better zingers. Sometimes I don't even realize I have been got until the middle of the night when I can't sleep. Then I spend the rest of the night chuckling. I always figure ya gotta laugh at yourself; may as well everyone else is.
I think that getting poked and proded is a right of passage. For some of us it a damned long passage.
Hey beaner!, You and I have the same birthday!
Now I know I'm not the only one that statement strikes as irony....
Look bro...bottom line this is the HAMB....you have more of a shot of getting a straight answer from your smartassed teenage son than ANY of us...tis very similar to the military...if you open yourself up to ridicule.....game on; THEN if you show weakness (in the form of getting pissed) then we will gladly capitalize off of that until there is nothin left cept the empty blood pressure meds bottle.
Two things you need here....thick skin....and spell check....f7 brother f7 USE IT!
That is all.
Well it sucks to be you.
Happy B day twin. I'm getting a jug of JD for my B day this year, I'll knock one back for ya. Actually if you would send me a can of pearl I could "Drink Pearl in a can and Jack Daniels Black. . ."
OK fellas give the man a break, you can all have fun at my expense for the next 5 minutes.
You 'want' answers. For free, on time, under budget.
I'd be a little weary of eating a cookie full of P-n-B's brillance!
you started it you spelled dumb ...domb...that seemed dumb...and that's how it starts. Believe it or not spelling and grammar goes a long way in this world. It just seems schools these days just let people do it however it feels good....instead of correctly.
Good luck with your ride.
No shit. Read his original post again. He not only misspelled Dumb, but all the highlighted words as well. Then he gave just about no information as to what the truck had now, how it had been modified, what he wants out of it or even which end he wanted to work on - or both.
As someone on here has so eloquently said - "You want to build a car when you can't even build a sentence"
As for the "Smart Ass" comments, when I was coming up, the older guys would always give the newbies a hard time, it was part of the process and a right of passage. And when you say Dumb things or get combative, it only leads to more. Those who learned from it went on to be part of the group, those that didn't cried in their soup. So Man Up or Move On
I'm one of the somewhat "younger" group on the HAMB at 43, and have been hanging with my dad and his grouchy old bastard group of hotrodders since I was old enough to hand them wrenches.
They've been ribbing me and jacking with me for years and I've learned to dish it right back at them. And...when it comes right down to it, they'd walk through the fires of hell to help me out.
So dude....don't get all insulted....roll with it....you'll see that these most of these guys know their shit. Think of it as a bunch of rodders hanging in someone's garage, giving each other hell.
wisdom right there....wisdom
How about some lowering blocks ?
P.S. I have an older friend that can barely read or write , but he can build engines , chop tops and do stuff that I will never be able to do . Not spelling properly in and of itself can be overlooked as long as everything else is on the up and up !
yu peapel our aswholes
" The only dumb question is the one that wasn't asked. "
as a bad speller myself, i kind of wish all spell checkers would start writing romance novels or something as worthwhile instead of jumping in everytime. i mean it's not like anyone didn't know what he was talking about.
I think its great, how it bother's so many of you guys that i cant spell, it sound's like it really bother's you guys................and I like it HA....HA!!
Put the gun DOWN, crazy ass.
Move the axle to the top of the spring, take out all but the main leaf and install your air bags.
There are no domb questions but there are stopid ones.
Turn on spell check!
You go Twinstick.................
