re: Why is Englishman, Frenchman, etc deemed Acceptable yet Chinaman is Somehow Not - dpd901 on 5/30/16 at 10:31 pm
When people tell you they prefer not to be called by a descriptor, then basic human decency says you probably should respect thier choice. Is it dumb to be offended by everything? Absolutely. Should you continue to refer to people with names they've asked you not to? Absolutely not. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

For an extra $80, my son swims on the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Is Borden chocolate milk the greatest drink ever? - dpd901 on 5/26/16 at 10:12 pm

As its pasteurized, it's perfectly safe to drink, but who would by pink bloody milk? Throw a little chocolate in there to make it brown though,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

I had a sweet arse Diamond Back something like this, but I had mag rims, a laid back seapost, and pegs on front and back. Bought it with money from my paper route...
