1. That thing is cool.

2. That thing has to cost some serious cash.

3. There's his faithful wife standing there with the fire extinguisher before takeoff.

More like a toy for boys...not exactly what comes to mind when you say "boy toy."

That thing just sounds awesome.  You really need to know what you're doing to fly and maintain one of those things.

You just had to go and show me that didn't ya ! My RC addiction is already impacting on my gaming and guitar addiction - if I move into planes I'll need to build on !

Migsy, you NEED one of these.  Mrs. Migs would understand.  But what you REALLY need, it a RC jet-powered flying guitar. Obviously a Flying V.

I had a 1/10 Hen Long Pershing tank with upgraded metal tracks, but I kept burning motors out on the left side. Finally, I sold it and got into trucks, subs and boats.

Nice find.  I wish my wife would stand by me with a fire extinguisher while I play FPS's online.

For some reason I'm reading sexual foreplay into that sentence, but I just can't figure out how it would work.

Not that I'm asking! It's just an observation.

If I wasn't at work, I could send you a link on that !  ;)

^I'd like to see that link.  But it would have to probably be taken downstairs as this is a family show up here.  LB, I didn't intend that to come out the way you commented, but now you've given me some ideas.  Can't wait to go home to try out.

Good. Yet another perfectly good thread derailed into a discussion of sex.

It's Friday. Probably a good time to call it a week.

Only on Grogheads can you post on an RC AC, and take it eventually to the gutter.   ???

Somewhere, someone is out on the internet lusting for that exact fetish.

I hope I never meet them.
Title: Re: RC SR71
Post by: Epee1 on March 03, 2012, 04:13:55 PM
I could have gone my whole life without that image.

I'm sure at least your mother loves you Centurion, but I'm not sure I can forgive you for that for a LONG time.

That's nasty but probably true.  Now that's two images to haunt me for the rest of the day.

That's a long story!  Ever see the Sopranos?  Remember Tony's mom?  Then again, my family dynamic could, at a deep level, explain that picture!

See I did a Google search for a "no nipples" image, hoping for a nice graphic of a crossed-out nipple, like a no smoking sign.  What you've seen is what I got.  :-\

Somehow I have the sense that the tide is going out on that, so I won't waste time or bandwidth.
