re: Is there anything that amazes you that others believe? - BiggerBear on 6/18/17 at 8:57 am
This is the key to all the rest. The "people" who believe this are young and impressionable and will believe almost anything their parents tell them. This one is so obviously bogus that they eventually realize/accept that it isn't true. Yet they still believe 90% of the other bull shite that their par...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Restaurants with no wait staff but still expect tips - BiggerBear on 6/9/17 at 9:08 pm
I used to wait tables and generally tip whenever I am served. If I serve myself, I do not. And, I never tip when I am uncertain who will get the tip or if I think the "tip" is really just the management giving me the "opportunity" to pay them a little more than the usual charge....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: teenage girl gets beat by her Mom because her BF sexually abuses her. - BiggerBear on 6/7/17 at 2:40 pm
A couple of comments. I generally don't believe the things I see on the internet. I don't know what started this confrontation, but the girl head-butted the mother first. The "allegaions of abuse" came after the mother and daughter had already been fighting and it isn't clear that the accusations we...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I am looking at an add for a "2015 Xpress 22 Bay" and the hull material is listed as fiberglass. I am not all that familiar with Xpress boats. Anyone know if this is just a mistake or whether that model was indeed Fiberglass. Any other input about the boat is welcome as well. TIA...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
