  1. You know, I just can't leave a good reply alone it seems, I always have to dig deeper and relate everything to the societal changes in our nation today. We are in the midst of an experiment that went horribly wrong, it's called political correctness, and within that lies the belief that you are not allowed to have your "feelings" hurt, and you get trophies for showing up, and yada yada yada, we all know the speech here. And because having ones feelings get hurt, is almost against the law these days, actually I am sure we can dig up laws that do protect feelings if you really think about it, but because we are not allowed to hurt "feelings" anymore, the humor of self-deprecation has fallen by the wayside. Because now that as a culture we are overly sensitized to not hurting another's feelings, that sentiment has been also directed inward in our millennial's and even early generations who have bought into it all. Since we cannot have fun with words, we cannot have sharp tongues anymore, since we must be overly careful who we insult, our youth are being raised to believe that they must take themselves just as serious, and God forbid if you ever hear a younger person these days, say, "I'm a knucklehead" followed up by a laugh. If a young millennial were standing with a group of their peers, and they launched into a humorous tirade of self-deprecation, their peers around them would gasp in horror, call 911, ask for an ambulance to get that person to their nearest grief counselor but not before they stop at the nearest Starbucks for their "Unicorn" latte. Self-deprecating humor is a lost art I believe, thanks again, to our friend Political Correctness. Morning rant done, cheers! I got way off of Keith's topic here, sorry!
  2. C If This Gits Sh* Caned

    I am afraid you got Do-Do on your face Buck, I liked that post you did too. How could I not! Like I stated, your stuff has not been getting canned.
  3. I get my self deprecating humor from him, unfortunately folks these days mistake my humor for low self esteem, typically the younger crowd, really they have no sense of real humor. Dad and I watched Abbott and Costello together a whole bunch, we rolled.
  4. That reminds of something my dad used to say, he was always full of funny lil jokes, "I used to be a Golden Glove Boxer, had to quite cuz they kept stepping on my fingers".

    Keith, the walls are used on a set, stage, correct? How are the walls staying up?
  6. The Patriot Woodworker "Main" Website Page

    None, Bill, still under development in my spare time. It's been open longer than I intended, but I'll leave it open longer to yall can critique more as you have the time as well. No registration on the main site for anyone. That login is only meant for me, so I need to find a way to hide that login so folks won't get confused and try to login or register, thanks for exposing that confusion Bill! No forums are going to change at this time, as far as I can see though aren't all forums accounted for at the "Main" site home page? The Scrap Bin is missing but since it's, you know, the Scrap Bin, I didn't think it needed to be on our showcase page. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!
  7. Last Few Days?

    If you think your stuff is being canned Buck, see your own home page, and perhaps you'll see where you put all your stuff. http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/profile/4633-buck-nall/?wr=eyJhcHAiOiJmb3J1bXMiLCJtb2R1bGUiOiJmb3J1bXMtY29tbWVudCIsImlkXzEiOjIyMTI5LCJpZF8yIjoxNDQ0NDd9
  8. Last Few Days?

    Sorry buck, as far as I know, nobody is canning your content, more than likely you're forgetting where you put it!
  9. Please read this, homeless marine

    Since we got you here Preston, please see February What's It winner.
  10. Some of it forgotten but never gone. For years now I have held a deep interest in Appalachia life, the mining, the culture, the people, the challenges and poverty, and of course the woodwork! Awhile back I saw this video and just enjoyed it completely, some neighbor kids getting together, possibly on a Sunday after Church, or a Friday night? This video reminds me that we do have a culture, and it's not always popular but it's ours, and the music is a big part of the American experience. Imagine being a foreigner, and looking in on this, you know how you feel when you go to a different country, and you are amazed and joyous while discovering their culture? Well this is a part of all of US! A mix of German, Scottish, native, and much more, we are America!
