    Lets be honest here. Who started it? It was not me. I made an innocent post and he did not like it, he criticized it and then he insulted me. That is a fact written in black and white.

    Did I retaliate? Yes I did.

    I am still working on "Ignoring Ignorance with compassion".

    You are right! Grammatical error. That is why 50% of my posts are edited,,,you caught it before me.

    How did you like my last 4 words? A version of a quote I wrote 18 years ago after a serious confrontation!!

    The original was..."Ignore ignorance with compassion".

    Is that a Capolini Original quote, or did someone else originate it?

    Steve, what did you post that was so terrible? I cannot imagine that it was too bad. Having a little fun once in a while is what makes this place interesting. I have been on that other site once in a while lately and it drives me crazy to hear all the comments about CPF. The only thing worse would be to see it first hand. I hope we can all continue to have a little fun with each other once in a while without taking things too far which for the most part I think we do.

    Hi guys,

    I know someone who is gm on a very busy international computer security forum, and he told me that once in a while, it becomes time to go into New Topic mode. I have a feeling this is one of those times.

    Would it be a good idea to let all of the "interesting" items that occurred here in the past 24 hours or so to just be allowed to naturally effortlessly glide into the past? I kind of think so.

    Was anyone here out in Pacifica a couple of nights ago walking on "Old San Pedro Rd."?
    Someone was double fisting two large powerful lights waving them around.
    I was down in a canyon digging w my H20vn on 30% and whom ever it was lit the whole area up above pretty crazy.
    May have been two HID lights cuz they were an ugly cool.
    Ended up being kind of annoying as they were waving one of the lights up and down while they walked and swinging their arms.

    If it had been a neutral beam I would've pedaled up to say hi

    Those light up dog collars are kind of cool too - I've had some close calls with off leash dogs when night riding.

    I've noticed a HUGE increase in people taking walks at night and riding too with the easy access to semi-decent lights even at regular drug stores/Home Depot etc.

    Also the Bay Area is just way more crowded & active these days just about everywhere doing anything

    Hope to do some backpacking early next week - maybe I'll lug my S200CVN along!

    Also, playing a show in Big Sur this weekend and car camping.
    S200CVN is great for lighting up drunk friends peeing in the woods...

    Goodtimes.

    I am kinda curious on your quote...Can you clarify. Does ignore = no respond/reactions? If yes the compassion part is just a personal thing in the responder head right? If not then how should compassion be expressed while keeping true to the ignore suggestion?

    maybe it should be "ignoring ignorance as compassion". as in, if i respond, you wont like it?

    Ignorance is bliss therefore by ignoring it rather than combating it you are being compassionate (i.e. Letting the ignorant enjoy their state of bliss)

    Right?

    That's what swimmer told me

    If your friend gave it to you, probably not worth much. Lol. Jk.

    Any idea who is the MFG or maker?

    It's a unique knife that's more than pleasing to the eye, even intriguing.

    I think the value of it to you, is how much enjoyment you get from it.

    Unfortunately I'm having to fell about 2 dozen trees that are dying from the bark beetle. Must cut them down before they drop on any of my cabins. I have a really good crew dropping them and I will cut to size and split for firewood. I miss my boating days.. so much fun..

    Hello guys, I just got my x45vn today.. this light is so bright that I can't even get near it.. the amount of lumen coming from this light will hurt my eyes.. lol.. I test the turbo heat test with the Sony vtc 6 flat top. It fits ok because button top is a must.. so you will get better connection. I am waiting for my Sony vtc5a button top..

    After 2 minutes turbo, the head is 197.5 Fahrenheit and handle is 126.5.. I didn't experience any lumen step down with the Sony vtc6. The voltage was 3.96.

    Oh wow, that certainly looks more like work than fun. You should have plenty of good wood for fall bonfires at least.
