Well, good. Glad my posts are amusing. Nice to have an audience, even one
that throws a stone or two now and again. Does tend to point out, though,
how mere text can be taken a variety of different ways when there is no
emotion attached to it, as would be in a conversation. By the way, what the
hell is a metal skip?
FYI skips normally are made of metal.
Enter the word "skip" here:
See option 5. (At least, it was 5 when I looked).

In my post I told you what a skip was and gave you the URL to a picture of
one so that you can relate to whatever word you use in your part of the
world (I know in the US you say "garbage" where we say "rubbish"). The
post you responded to gave you the URL to an online dictionary.
You have to read the post properly and consider following links given to
you before you respond, because if you take a post out of context or ask a
question that was answered in the post you just make yourself look silly.
There is no way I can sugar-coat what I have just said.
Fair enough, but, no offense to your post, I never engage a link from a
newsgroup. Unfortunately, many of these links are malicious and contain
viruses, and I prefer not to take a chance on that. That said, I deal with
whatever info is in the post only. It's too bad that many honest people
have to suffer for the actions of a few, but it is what it is.

A skip being a large waste recepticle often found in use while builders
are working. Most of them, if not all, are made of metal.
In case you are still confused:
My point, since it was apparently missed, was that a mercedes costing around
30k is not a very expensive benz, and that a new domestic can cost easily
that much. I could have said "have you priced ford pickup trucks lately?"
as it would have been the same thing.
You can't always take a persons statement out of context. Sometimes you
need to read the post he was responding to. It was a strange post and I
couldn't pass it up, but there are strange people out here too....part of
the fun of delving into these newsgroups.
Don't care much for personal insults. If you are going to call someone a
name because you didn't like what he or she said in a post, you cannot
complain when the respondee fires one back. You will note that, unless I am
called out, I do not resort to name-calling. I don't mind overall bickering
and arguing, and I don't hold a grudge more than, say, 10 or 20 minutes, but
sometimes posters tend to get a little too personal.
As for having much to say, that would depend on the topic. Got a lot to say
about many things, as would you, I'm sure, and am totally ignorant on other
things. If you want to talk about dogs, Mercedes, cooking, firearms,
high-end watches, politics (ok, that one we might want to leave alone. I'm
pretty anti-liberal in that area), then I got mucho to say. Then there are
subjects I know little or nothing about, just like anyone else. I can
promise you this much--if I don't know something, I won't say I do. If I do
know something about an issue or subject, I would say so. I always back my
arguments and points with an authority.
For someone who doesn't have much to say, perhaps I've said too much.
Nobody likes a post that goes on too long, so I'll leave it here. Besides,
my shepherds are chasing each other through the house and that is not a
pretty sight. We must be off.
