Tell you what, can you actually just state what you mean by the point of these forums? I think the context of that quote makes it really confusing and I respect you enough to try to figure out what you mean.

This is basically a pointless redundant thread anyway, might be a good place for a manifesto..

i've not had luck explaining things to others much but I can only try in hopes to eventually get it good once in a while lol

The point i am trying to make, is that, some take the internet too literally while some take it for granted. The balance happening between those two, are for lack of better words, poop. Now if, for example, someone is directing a harmful threat that could lead to some physical harm, then that is going too far & uncalled for.

Neither, although both good choices, Usinger’s applewood smoked, available as a 3-pack from Costco. It’s the only reason I have a Costco membership, if they ever drop it, and only carry their Kirkland brand, I’m turning in my card.
Admittedly, guilty of other purchases from Costco, but only go when, out of bacon at home.

I know,.....I know.....Bacon makes EVERYTHING BETTER!

But yea, bacon wrapped hot dogs....nothing like adding additional salty fatty goodness to an already salty piece of pork.

heh...that actually sounds good with a good beer!

The same thing applies to Gas grills, lawn mowers, al stuff assembled at a big box store. This stuff is built so unbelievably cheap

Until the "toy" stigma of bicycles is gone, the BBS will continue to sell them as a disposable toy.
