    Saying hi on the iPhone from Nag's Head... I understand Cape Hatteras maybe 60 miles south of here, is the current projected Northernmost extent of BP's disaster of negligence... So I hope this place makes it without incident. It makes me think about the disappearance of so many people's birthright, the theft and despoiling of their environment, in the name of deregulation and easy corporate profits

    not a peep from the something for nothing crowd in the Tea Party of course.... No rallies, no "defund BP act".... Well, I guess in the 1770s we dumped tea into a harbor to protest big government (sic), so any time someone spills some vast amount of non-water into a body of water, that must be what our founding fathers were fighting for...

    Hi from an island in Maine, I lifted up some seaweed this morning and found a "Dukakis Bumper Sticker"

    Wow flex, just pointing out I'm texting so my post is likely to be only vastly superior to the usual tripe here, rather than exponentially so. I don't want anybody to mistakenly conclude that I think I'm better than them because I'm some kind of digerati hipster, when in fact I'm better than them for so many other reasons....

    But mainly I'm just glad that the environmentalists and the coast guard are too preoccupied this year to try to "tow me back home" when I'm on the beach

    I wanna stay.

    When I saw the subject line of this thread, I honestly thought he was talking about his wife. :rofl: :rofl:

    I once drove my Impreza on the beach a little up the coast from Nags Head, and it's tricky stuff. I had several tips from some of my friends who live there, and if not for some of those, I'm sure would have been hiring the local "towing service".

    Have fun down there, and don't forget to not buy an OBX sticker. :D

    Didn't think you were one upping, thought it was parody... So was flippant back though I'm sure I came across as serious... As for exercise, the best I can manage is walking up to one of our 2 nearby piers, drink and cigarette in hand, wearing standard issue old man straw hat and Nicholson shades. I must say the look suits me. And as to politics, I have elected myself mayor of margaritaville.

    Nik, wife was a newbie last year... And so I became the proud owner of my first ever Obx sticker.

    I have to admit I thought they were cool around 1980 or so, especially since in dc you see so many country stickers like DE and NZ... But in the food lion parking lot I saw an suv with at least a dozen of them from various u.s. Tourist attractions... And i fear the country sticker joke is a thing of the past

    Indeed. That fad ruined the "chic-ness" of the original, starting around 2000 I would say.

    I do see a lot of OBX stickers in DC, but I'm even seeing a bunch of them here in CT now. :rolleyes:

    It strikes me as unlikely that I could grow up anywhere at the time I grew up, and be privvy to the little inside code words racists use on bulletin boards when their slur of choice is screened out. I'm not going to lose too much sleep over being out of touch with Internet racial epithets... Guess in your world that's funny stuff. Okay.

    I grew up on the poor side of the tracks as they say ... it's not an internet thing.
    That term was popular in the 70's and 80's and was replaced with other words since then.

    On the street ... there is little to no political correctness ... then or now.
    I still hear all the hateful stuff when I'm in some urban areas of New England.

    We grew up knowing all those things and we really had nobody to teach us they were wrong. Well that changed a bit in high school and those of us that made it to college learned even more how wrong all that stuff was.

    Didn't mean to offend you with any of it but certain words bring back certain memories.

    I'm very surprised the pc police haven't tried to change the name of Nag's Head is all.

    Often, history will trump relatively obscure slang or contemporary political currents, thankfully.

    Not sure about that Nikolai

    .... currently the youth of today is speaking and writing a new language that is best suited for the internet.

    It started with LOL ... and it's now gone viral.
