2. I know the feeling.
Our local cable stations are mostly Charlotte based stations. We do have one Raleigh station and one Florence, SC station. None of them seem to ever report the weather for us. As soon as a storm leaves the Charlotte area, they say the coast is clear. Meanwhile, it's hailing in Rockingham and there are trees slapping their tops on the ground on each side, back and forth. The other night after the weathermen said all the bad weather had left the area, a storm came up that broke one of the trees in my jungle/yard in half. I hit the deck when the top of it hit the ground, just 25 feet away from the living room. The tree behind it, though, got broke in half too. Weird thing about it is the trunk is sitting there with an obviously freshly broken top, only the top is gone...gone. I do not know where it went at all. For all I know, it's in Munchkinland now. I have no idea where the rest of that tree went.

Yeah, weatherpeople, the coast was clear allright... for you. :banghead:

5. I'm new here, but why do people insist on using the F-word?
:shrug:

6. Because sometimes nothing else will do
We're adults here who speak in adult language, we've suffered through five long hard years, cursing is our last solace.

13. Don't mind me
sometimes it's hard to know what is serious and what isn't, we just had a big war on this very subject, besides I've yet to fire my bowl this morning. :hi:

7. Hello JackBeck!
to DU

I don't really have a good answer to your question. Most DUers are intelligent thinking types. I 'll take a guess and say 'they think it's cute'. Perhaps they should substitute the F-word Fornicate instead.

9. Maybe my sarcasm was rather weak in my post.
I should have provided more background.

MatCom posted this flamewar in GD over the use of the F-word. I was just trying to make a funny. I guess it was a lame attempt...

12. It wasn't your fault.

I rarely visit GD these days. I don't think my blood pressure can take the strain and my natural air-headiness seems to have kicked in again. :blush: BTW thanks for the link.

10. I wouldn't think the weather could affect a thing like that.
