IMHO what we get for Christmas and everyday is a more focused forum - not so many "what is your favorite cat's name" type of questions. Laughing

What I'd really like for Christmas from the MB staff would be an "ignore" function that would allow me to hide posts from specified members.

Other than that, the MB staff keeps my Christmas stocking full of goodies year after year.

I'm thankful that MB doesn't have to use a karma system in order to regulate behavior (like MV), because the bulk of the folks here are kind, caring, love scooters and really do want to help.

As for your coal, it's kinda useful. You could refine it via liquefaction and have part of an oil change or a partial tank of fuel. Or, you take the easy route and just use it as a wheel chock.

Merry Christmas to the MV staff! Very Happy

The lights don't bother me, but if they bother you there is a Lights button on the menu bar you can use to shut them off. And I'll grant you the focus is tighter here than at MV, but there can be some very informative and interesting threads there.

Of course, you could always do the obvious thing and compress it at 726,000 PSI while heating it to 2700F to make diamonds.

Yes, I admit that I enjoy the garage/shed threads. Nabs has one heck of a shed thread in progress.

I like your tweed, sir. I was going for scooter-relevant, but if you fab a diamond, that could buy several scooters! Very Happy

Ha. I feel kinda sorry for old nabs. Wet OSB is not good.

That's not JUST coal.
-Place on seat.
-Ride.
If, at end of ride, your coal has changed into a precious gem, you have indeed experienced a pucker-factor moment. Sell refined item, pay any aquired medical bills, use rest for new scoot and a vacation to relax muscles.

In all truthfulness I also enjoy the wide range of topics on MV - though I was somewhat perplexed by the "What is you favorite tree ?" posting awhile back. But then, if you might run into a tree one day, it could be helpful to know something about them. Rolling Eyes
