Strange question to begin with. Like the question which gave the answer away yesterday.... "I'll take 100 degree days for $100 Alex." That would be after "S" Words' and "Therapists" for four hundred "Alex." - Not Parker.

I don't like to look at speakers. Must be a public speaking thing. That is my answer.

BTW. Does this new platform allow for PM's like the ones that used to be monitored? I would like to drop a message to someone on here if possible. It came from Alcatraz, I think. And it said that I had to send it to 12 friends for my wish to come true. Was a very rar'a message.

Actually, seeing is part of it. Anyway: Probably FDR, Churchill, JFK, MLK. Of course, Lincoln at Gettysburgh and anything Crazy Horse would have quoted, but those are rare. "This is the lodge of Crazy Horse." (isn't one, but I love it).

You got it, Autie. Was trying to be as simple as possible. Question still not answered. Can one send a PM on this new platform?

BTW - Descartes, and his "plane" got me though several years of math. More than a double negative to even things out. I have always loved numbers and that guy figured them out.

Yes, you can send private messages just as you have been able to in the past.

People vote for someone who shares their values don't they, so we pretty much know that a lot of Germans were anti-semitic a long time before Hitler came long. The economy was in a royal mess and Hitler took a few years to get going, but he listened to what people were saying before he made his pitch. He was going to remake the map of Europe, as a start, with a little help from his friends.

Why on earth would they wear cowboy hats? What hat would be truly symbolic of America? Like Elton John sang in Pinball Machine, I don't know!

Heck, if that was the only thing I had to protect I would use it. But, then again, you have a lot more hair. No fair.

Posts missing, can't like any comments... Did I die and miss the whole thing?

At least my password is still good if I make it back from the alternate universe.
