While it was fun figuring out the 'puzzle' numerics, like others, I'd just as soon not see the #'s (or pull out the matrix math again:).

I like the site because I can get good information on what gear and techniques are good, how to save my knees and keep hiking, and I expect others do it for similar reasons (and maybe try to catch PJ :)

If Ryan want's to use if for BPL analysis, that's fine with me, but I didn't think it was a race, and vote (do I get to vote?) to not show them.

I have a feeling that this is more of a benevolent(?) dictatorship than a democracy. ;-)>

New to all this, but love the site and members comments on 11/28/2006 19:44:08 MST Print View

Ranks are always a thing of wonder. Obviously pj is great, as are all the rest of the people -- if not so prolific or even relevant or accurate sometimes IMO.

I simply love the site and the info ... especially given that most of my neighbors here on the mountain (there are only about 300 people in the area) have quad machines, jeeps that ride like torture devices, love hunting as much as hiking or camping out, and so on ...

so for me posting doesn't come from being rank or ranked ... it is just a great community for those who love UL SUL and UUL and XL ... b.d.

Yo Dondo, ultimately, every commercial entity is a customer driven democracy..... (;->)

In the short term, however, we may still not get a vote :)

For incentives, personally I would like trading cards with pictures of various Avatars: "I'll trade you 3 PJs and 2 Verbers for 5 Fornshells."

I see this thread (the one discussing useful vs. useless threads) has taken a turn for the worse. Or shall I say it has become a bit rank - to use one of PJ's lovely definitions.

Forum Profile: BPLRank is recruiting tool on 11/28/2006 21:47:14 MST Print View

I have read all the mis-information and speculation about BPLRank, and I need to reveal the truth. The BPLRank is a secret recruiting tool used by Dr.J and the others to rank and then select the best and brightest SUL-ers to join the BPL staff. Much like the intro scene from Mission Impossible 2 (with an UL twist), you might be free-climbing a mesa somewhere, in your possum wool beanie, cuben fiber thong and trail-runners, when a black helicopter appears and drops a canister containing glasses which play a video when worn.. "Your mission, should you choose to accept it.."

Ok, i'm worthless the rest of the day.

first thing i do when i get to work (b/f officially going "on the clock", so to speak) is check out the new Postings.

y'all are a riot. some very funny people here. my co-workers already know i sometimes mutter to myself when i'm trying to debug code ("Johnson, you idiot!" is often heard; and yes, i do know who's doing the talking that i hear - it's DrJ!). today, i'm sure that they will hear some chuckles as i recall some of these Posts.

just one word of correction: at the current rate of exchange it's any-given-number-of-pj's + 5 Verbers = 5 Fornshells; pj's, while rare ["thank goodness", i can hear y'all thinking] are just a placeholder; they essentially have no intrinsic value; if you want proof, just ask my wife, particularly since i discovered this website over two yrs ago the things to fix around the house have been piling up. I'm off work nearly all Dec. this yr and she has a "honey-do vacation" already planned for me (y'all have heard this one, right? "honey, do this; honey, do that").

Beware of forged BPL Trading Cards! I've detected 4 already, on the "WM Megalite" thread for 11-29-2006. In order to guarantee the integrity of the partially born True Cards, it will probably be necessary to use the latest micro-dot technology, involving entangled atomic states, as hinted at in the Two Slit Experiment. (The official Two Slit Experiment had nothing to do with sex. If you have perfomed other types of 2 slit experiments, I don't want to hear about it because my mind is pure.)

Lets just say it is a welcome addition to the gear talk here. Funny was your word, but yes, like reading Catch22.

The novel "Catch 22"? Don't besmirch that masterpiece by mentioning my name in the same sentence. You're thinking of the porno flick, "Snatch 22."

A word of advice from one a lot older than you - heed your wife. :-)

Gotta' break the news to you Doc C. You prob. ain't old enough to be my father. I'm nipping right at your heels in the age dept (according to my reading, in the USofA we generally retire at an older age than Euros do; i'm not sure 'bout Aussies' retirement age though).

But, no matter - yours is good advice and i will heed it (that's why i've been married for over 27yrs and counting).

Fair enough.
