Jalapeno




speaking of which... i went to the vegetable section of the piggly-wiggly the other night just lookin for some simple jalapenos. up pops this little whipper-snapper, in his clean white apron and his spiffy produce name-tag. "what can i help you find sir".. as if i couldnt find it.. "well, timmy..., i am looking for your peppers.. jalapenos specifically". "right back over here they are", as he hustles past the cantalopes and bananas. takes a right at the mangos, and shoots right past the seedless grapes. "you makin a killer pot of chili", he asks as we walk. now every man worth his weight in terds knows that you NEVER ask a man about his chili, its just bad etiquette, but i decide to play along.. "naw, i am building a life-size statue of george w bush in jalapenos, but i need a few extra to finish up the boots". he stops and smiles, "that sounds cool man, let me check that out when you are done".. and as we stop at the pepper section, he looks and points and says, "well, here ya go". i stand, in awe.. speechless, unable to form a thought or sentence. for in front of me, is the ugliest looking rack of habaneros peppers i have ever seen. wrinkly, flat, their normal bright orange faded to a dull brown. what in damn-nation is going on here!! dont that boy know the difference between a jalapeno and a habanero? what has the produce section come to? would he know the difference between romaine and iceberg? i doubt it. no thank you young man, i can find 'em on my own.. and next time i am going to krogers!!

I say we should drop both "dot" and "point". Victor Borge was on to something with his Phonetic Punctuation System.

tom,

You can count me among the BrenR fan-club, as well. Articulate, educated, experienced, opinionated, and among the top 5 people I'd like to buy a beer. Definitely not one of those milquetoast-Canadians you see on TV.

In reply to:

When referencing metric sizing of automobile engines, I say " it has a 5point7 litre engine....", written 5.7


As do I... it's a decimal point. The 350cid engine roughly translates to 5 litres plus 7/10th of a litre.
In reply to:

When referencing TCP/IP addresses, I say "10dot10dot15dot150" written 10.10.10.150


I usually leave the dots out. Just "one nine two... one six eight... sixty-nine *heheh heheheheheh heheh* I do use the term "dot" when explaining to an inexperienced user how to enter an IP address.

Oh, hell... all this love, think I'm going into sugar shock! But articulate? I don't know, does being able to use the F-bomb as any part of speech apply?

I'll take the beer though.

And which milque-toast Canadians would you be referring to?
Celine Dion maybe?

OK, I've read and re-read this thread several times. Bren, If I am correct, the main point you are trying to make is that a Walther won't be able to play music or contribute to an HT set-up. Is that the gist of it?

Good heavens, Ray. You've missed it entirely. There are, as usual, three main points. To whit -

1. Bren is running for Canadian PM
2. Bigjohn is a budding sculptor
3. BB doesn’t carry 25’ jalapenos

Try to keep up, willya?

I admit that I purchase quite a bit of stuff from BestBuy -- I like the selection. I'd just be happy if they stopped trying to sell me a freakin' extended service plan on everything I buy. Recently I bought a $25 digital answering maching. The conversation at the checkout when something like this...

Clerk: "Would you like to purchase an extended warranty plan for only $8?"

Me: "No thanks"

Clerk: "Really?!? What are you going to do if this one breaks?"

Me: "Buy a new one."

Sorry to hijact the thread, but since we're all on a rant here about BestBuy, I thought I'd jump in.
