    Posted: 27 Feb 2015 at 3:15pm
Ok, I've thought about starting a thread like this for a while now, so here goes. Sometimes this forum is completely dead. I, as well as many of you, come here expecting solace from an overworked and underpaid society that is overwhelmed with garbage. And by garbage, I mean Facebook, Twitter, hashtags, Google overload, etc. Anyways,  I thought I would start a thread where anything goes. I know we have random music threads, as well as what did you do today threads. There are a bunch of them that encompass every subject. But I would like to try something else. A completely open thread to express any and all feelings. I would like for any and all political banter to not happen here, but where's the fun in that? Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.  Like I said, anything goes. Anyways,  a totally free and open place to talk openly about anything. And I mean anything. Sex, drugs, rock and roll. And hell, even if you secretly like rap, it's OK to say it here. Anything goes in the dead zone..

I haven't seen The Dead Zone in around 25 years.

Oh yeah I know .. that was just the first thing that came to mind when I read the title so I threw it out there LOL   

I am pissed, though. I got donuts this morning on the way in and the lady gave me friggin' strawberry filled instead of chocolate filled like I asked.

As dead as this place has been getting lately, it ought to become a popular thread.

Of course, if the place is dead, there won't be anyone posting anyway, so by extension, the thread will also be dead.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I've become dependant upon this forum, especially in the AM.  I'm up at 5 or earlier every day.  After I take some vitamins, feed the cats, go outside for a smoke, and then turn on the news to make sure ISIS hasn't arrived in my neighborhood, I come upstairs to check emails and see what's up on CIH.  So when, like this morning, when CIH seems to have been a dead zone for the previous 9 hours, I feel a tad let down.  There's really not much else to do this early.

I guess I can go have another smoke.

Do you have a brand?

I go for whatever's cheap or on sale, as long as it's not that totally generic stuff---like Pyramid or Basics.  Too harsh.  Otherwise, I don't care.  Some people prefer one brand over another.  Not me.  They're all the same to me.

I used to smoke in my house.  No more.  This has helped me cut down to about 1/3rd of what I used to smoke.

My brand is Winston, which is usually a little cheaper (by "little" I mean all of maybe 10-20 cents LOL ) here than the other premium brands.  The nearby Buc-ee's has them for $5.50.

I love fresh strawberries, but never liked artificial flavored e.g. strawberry jelly, ice cream, etc.  I dunno why that is, it just is.  Similarly, I love the smell of coconut, but hate the taste Dead

My brand was/is Doral 100's.

I have around a full carton of them in my bottom fridge door that were purchased like 15 years ago or so.

Still good, too.

I just paid $4.42/pack for Marlboro Blacks the other day.  I also occasionally get coupons for $1 off per pack.  That'd bring it down to $3.42.

I roll my own. I buy a pound bag of "The Good Stuff". It's good for 2.5 -3 cartons. Tastes kind of like Marlboros. $16.69 a bag. Filter tubes are $2.59 a carton. But when I  do buy, I go Pall Mall. I seem to smoke less of them because they last longer. 

And yeah, I get the not smoking inside thing. I'm in the process of getting my apartment ready to paint, so once it's painted,  no smoking inside.  Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

I have a tobacco plant in my backyard right now that I'm trying to get rid of.  My neighbor gave it to me when it was little more than a sprout.  It's now fairly big.  I think I'm gonna give it back to him.

After washing my walls and ceiling a few months back, I decided to stop smoking inside.  You wouldn't believe how dirty it makes a room.  After I cleaned, my walls and ceilings actually became a few shades brighter.

^^ I smoked in my first apartment which I lived at for 3 years, and in the living room my sofa was against one wall and the TV/entertainment stand was against the opposite wall.  When I moved out you could see the outline of the furniture on the wall from the color contrast due to the smoke LOL

Save the plant for the zombie apocalypse. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page. Or just the apocalypse.  And yeah, I had to clean a few spots on my walls. That's why I decided to repaint. I hate those clean, nicotine free spots.. I'm too lazy to scrub all the walls. Primer and paint. Lazy mans solution.  Shift+R improves the quality of this image.

If I was faced with a zombie apocalypse, I'd make damned sure I stocked up on smokes.  I don't know how Darryl only seems to smoke one occasionally.

I don't know why people who quit smoking years ago, don't start up again when they're 70 or 75.  I mean, at that point, why not?

I never understood that about Darryl either. He must enjoy them in a way we can't comprehend. I suppose walkers will do that to ya. Just survive until the next smoke. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

If I ever quit, I don't think I'd start again. I'd hock stuff like Jack LaLanne. Be in my 80's-90's and selling juicers.
