So you admit to being an ill-educated moron not willing to check a reference
before using it? Boy, I'm sure everyone will be interested in your opinions
Did I claim to be an expert? No, just informed due to my intensive medical
background. To be blunt, I would have no use for the med since I have no
need for it based on the indications, as I'd already ennumerrated, for its
use. That and the fact that it doesn't come in suppository form. Again,
check your references before spouting off and digging yourself (and any
miniscule sense of credibility) deeper into your steaming dunghill.
As I stated in my previous post, you should discuss using it yourself with
you Doctor. I'm sure if you act in his office like you act on Usenet, he
would make an exception and prescribe it for you as a suppository. And as
you have some sort of strange fascination with your ass and it's function
anyway, as a special treat just for you, maybe you can get it in "retention
I reiterate: "Yo Momma!"
When I make reference to cars, I rarely need to look up any references, as I
am well experienced and can describe complex GM wiring and pin outs for
diagnosis, without any reference materials.
So you couldn't come up with a clever retort *TWICE* and you admit it? Give
up while your not just behind, but not even playing the game anymore. Of
course you seem to like the behind for some reason. Ecch, scary thought.
At what point did I ever attack your knowledge of cars? What I said was to
check your references on something you obviously know nothing about, before
tapping anything into your keyboard.
being good friends with many:
M.D, Ph.D's, I learned about pharmacology,m when they tried to make me a
storage bin for narcotics early on in the RSD downhill slide, and I told
them I refused any narcotic drug.
Then I researched the new modalities that were being pioneered by the world
renounned Robert L. Knobler, M.D. Ph.D. And Hooshang Hooshmannd, M.D, Ph.D.
With whom I've become very close friends with over the years.
They've mentioned having to put many of the sufferers of RSD on the drug and
mentioned it in passing. As I refuse any drug that is a mind altering drug,
I didn't research it, as I do the current drug modality I am on and chose
personally. Which is an epileptic drug regimen. That is more of an
anti-spasmodic than a mind, or mood altering drug regimen.
Seeing as you have knowledge in medicine and pharmacology, am most happy to
discuss this with you in the open. If I can save on person the suffering of
RSD, I feel I have done my job as a human being. I am the fourth documented
person with RSD, to put it into full remission.
It took willpower, thinking of my children when the going got tough and the
determination that I would not fail. Three people who have tried it after me
have died. I attended on of their funerals. The girl who introduced me to my
ex fiancιe had RSD and passed from complications of RSD. Pneumonia for the
14th time and died in her sleep. It was a sad loss, even though she
introduced me to that bitch!
So are you on Phenobarbitol? I've heard of it being used for migrane
sufferers and RSD victims. If so, Phenobarbitol is a controlled substance
and it does have some mind-altering effects, though not as severe as opioids
(Morphine, Dilaudid, Demerol, etc).
My specialty is trauma, renal, endrocrine and cardiac - very little
neurological or psych in my 15 year background, so my knowledge of RSD is
very limited. I do know a former nurse who was recently fitted with an
internal neural stimulator with insertions at C5 and T1 - she says that it
has made her life livable, but it is not working as well as she hoped.
Do you have a website up about your trials and tribulations with this
disease? If not, consider making one - others may be able to use it as a
point of information to help them with their afflictions.
My wife has end-stage MS, complete with the peripheral neuropathy, optic
neuropathy, loss of fine motor control, neurogenic bladder and is now
confined to a wheelchair and it is a race between the aspiration pneumonia
or urosepsis that will take her to the celestial chariot.
454ss, CamaroSS, Scarab, Callaway Corvette, Corvette, ImpalaSS.
Granted, Chevy really has nothing to compete with the Ford GT, but this is
an unfair comparison. The GT40 was a pure racing car, never intended for
John Q Street, and now Ford is dragging it back out of the dust bin and putting
it in civie scivies for $150K. Hey, give me $150K to play with and I'll
find something that'll smoke it.
Be considerate of others and
trim your posts. Thank you.
What does Chevy have to match the Lightning, the Mustang GT or
You have now entered the realm of archeaology.
As far as the '70 or '71 SS 454 Chevelles, I agree Ford had nothing
comparable from the factory during those years. A 429 Torino running
a 460 crank and typical hot-rodding mods will blow it away, but stock
for stock Chevy wins.
As far as the 4th Gen Camaro Z/28-SS, agreed, Ford had nothing to
touch it until the more expensive blown SVT Cobra came out in '03.
As for the 1st Gen Camaros, the 396/375's were badass on the strip,
but the other 396's and the 350's had their equivalents at Ford. And
even the 396/375's couldn't keep up with the 428 CJ Stangs.
You can throw the '69 COPO 427's at me, but I can throw the '65-'70
Shelbys right back, and add that the tens of thousands of Shelbys
comprise a far more significant slice of automotive history than the
1,000 or so '69 427 COPOs.
As far as road racing, Shelby GT350R Mustangs won SCCA B Production in
'65 and '66, running against CORVETTES. And in the Trans Am, Mustangs
won in '66, '67, and '70, while Camaros won in '68 and '69. I'd give
the overall edge to the Mustang, seeing as how it not only bookended
the Camaro, it won more series overall.
As for the Scarab, now that's really getting obscure. If you're
talking homologated sports cars, the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe won
the FIA world championship over the Ferrari GTO in '64. The Scarab
won nothing. And of course the 289 and 427 Cobra roadsters dominated
every series they ran in.
If you're talking sports prototypes -- which is where the Scarab
sports cars actually ran -- nothing before or since has compared to
the Ford GT40's. If you're talking Formula 1 -- there were two Scarab
F1 cars as I recall -- again no one before or since can compare to the
Ford Cosworth V8. During one long stretch in the '70's Ferrari was
the only F1 team NOT running the Ford motor.
Funny you wouldn't mention the Can Am series of the late '60's, early
'70's. The last "formula libre" series ever, it was dominated by the
McLarens and their 427 and 435 ci Chevy Rat motors. Ford was a
(Not funny you wouldn't mention NASCAR of the '60's and early '70's,
since it was Chevy that was the non-factor there.)
The Callaway Corvette, I can only say "eh" to that one. Not a series
produced vehicle, really, not in the sense the Shelby Cobras were.
The twin turbo Callaways were awesome on paper, and I guess they're
gaining in collector value now, but they hardly made a ripple in their
hey-day. And they'll never touch a Ford GT or a Shelby Cobra in
pedigree, prestige, or value.
The factory Corvette itself is a one of a kind. Actually it's a dozen
of a kind, at least. It started out as a joke in '54 -- six
cylinders, 2-spd Powerglide tranny, any color you wanted as long as it
was white -- and through '62 was still running a Stone Age X-frame
with running gear that full size Chevys had left behind in '55. Even
when the IRS '63 came out, the Shelby Cobra and Jaguar XK-E (now a
Ford brand) were better cars. The 327/365's, 427/425's, 427/435's,
and 350/370's were great cars. But most Vettes during this period
were secretary cars and poseur-mobiles, running station-wagon level
motors with AC and automatics and skinny little whitewall tires.
Still and all we'll give the mid to early '60's to the Vette as
America's only sports car. The mid '70's through '83 are better
forgotten altogether. (Hey, we'd like to do the same thing with the
Mustang II and the early Fox Stangs, too.) Then, starting with the
Fourth Gen and continuing to the present day, they've been competent,
admirable, and in a class of one in bang for buck.
The Impala SS -- I guess you mean the LT-1 "late" model -- I'll go
along with you that Ford had nothing to compare during those
particular model years. And anyway I'm getting tired of typing. I'll
just say that to mention the LT-1 Impala SS is to damn Chevy with
faint praise. In other words, BFD.
There is no commonality whatsoever between the Lola-built, 289 and 427
FE powered '60's Ford "GT40" and the new GT. And you're wrong about
the "pure racing car" bit. The rules required 50 road-going
production examples, and according to this source
85 were built.
As far as finding something to equal the new GT for $150,000, it can't
be done. Sure, you could buy a used Formula 5000 that could tear it
up on the track. Maybe even a $10,000 Formula Ford would have it
covered. A Mosler or an Ultima GT might give it a run -- I have no
idea -- but there's nothing else turn-key and new that you could buy
for the same money that is anywhere close.
Taking pride in a part that nobody gives a rat's ass about? Wait!
Lemme guess. *Your* home is the national headquarters for the Saab
Owner Club of America, and buyers have to squeeze your wiggly for the
honor of fawning over worthless shit.
I save Rare Parts from destruction. The V-4 intake I saved as a
conversation piece. I don't plan on selling it, but I would if someone
actually needed it. My home is in the Birth Place of Aviation. While I have
helped out some owners clubs in the past, I don't have any regular dealings
with them. As for my dick, I'm rather selective about who touches it.
Charles, I believe Kittyhawk North Carolina was the birthplace of
aviation. Then again, I know Wright-Patterson AFB is near you. So
what's the connection of the Wright bothers to the Dayton area? Can
you fill me in on what makes Ohio the birthplace?

NC is where they flew the first Wright Flier (powered air craft)
successfully. Because of a recommendation from a government official. The
Wright Brothers used a site called Huffman Field before that, a piss poor
wind location. They actually could have made the first flight in this area,
if they would have look around more.
The Wright Family came to Dayton Ohio when Orville & Wilbur Wright were
small children. Living in the then prestigious West Side of Dayton. When
they were teens they built a printing press and printed a newspaper called
the "West Side News" As they Grew Older, they got in to Bicycles. Which
somewho they got the idea for a glider.
They started working on the first gliders right in the Bicycle shop.
Then at some point constructed a building on Huffman Field. At some point
they figured out controlled flight on the 3 AXIS system. Then managed to
design and build their own gasoline engines. All done here in Dayton. All
Wright Aircraft were built in Ohio. They were shipped via rail cars to NC to
After the Wright Brothers started building Air Craft to sell they did
so here in Ohio. Both the Brothers were Inventors till they they died.
Part of the Wright Brothers Story is intertwined with people like
Charles Kettering (inventor of the electric self starter for cars), who
also lived here in Dayton. Dayton Ohio, known also as the Gem City, between
1850 and 1960 had more patents filed then any State.
Basically the Air Plane was born here, just not tested here. It's
like how Detroit is credited with being the home of the American Auto
No I'm not too up on my local history.
Thanks Charles. I wasn't aware of all that. BTW, there's a cool
store in your area that I like to shop at over the internet. It's
called "Parts Express". I envy you being able to just mosey over
there and buy whatever on the spot.

Parts Express Located in Mendelsons. Only a mear 5 minute drive. I
Perfer the 4th floor of Mendelsons to parts express. As that is where you
find old factory equpiment, tools, and other cool items. Mendelsons is a
inventory buy out company. You can find every thing from clothing & books,
