    Yup.

    I also remember when your whole life/career couldn't be destroyed by someone of the other sex coming out 30+ years later claiming you did something back then yet has absolutely no proof.

    There is absolutely no way to prove it either way so shut the hell up #metoo dumbasses. They claim they wouldn't have been believed "back then" but that is bullshit. If anything, people like me would have been more inclined to kick someone's ass who abused a woman than we are today.

    I remember when thinking you were something other than one of the two genders, one of which you had a birth, was still considered mental illness

    You must be older than dirt.

    I remember when it was in the .40s but that was when my dad was buying it. I distinctly remember when we went on a 3 month vacation covering pretty much the whole western half of the US hitting all of the state parks back in 76 and my dad complaining about the gas prices up in Washington state because it was like 70 cents.

    It seems crazy to comprehend, I started driving in 2001, and it was awesome when is was under $1 a gallon... then around 2006 it jumped up to 3.50, and now down to around 3.


    So using your timelines and mine.... Then gas should only be 1.77 a gallon based on the 1965 KC Gas wars pricing to when it increased to .54 12 years later.

    And it should only be 1.39 based on the 1965 to my 2001 pricing

    It sounds more and more like boiling a frog at this point. But none of this has inflation figured in

    Apparently the inflation rate from 1965 to now is 1$ then equals $7.90 now.

    So gas back then would be worth .02.... to the $3 now. Translating to $.05 a year

    Which would put the 1977 gas at .72 instead of .54


    None of this matters, but crazy to think about from the inflation stand point. and even i think that 3x the price in 20 years a bit much.....

    I remember speech class in college. One assignment was to give a speech on something instructional to educate the class, and we had to use visual aids. I did "how to clean a handgun". No one freaked out.

    If you forgot your gun you would not be able to go hunting after school.

    We want her back? She did bring the entertainment value for sure but there was also that hint of insanity.

    I used to have the pic on one of my old laptops for whenever the opportunity arose to use it on the board but I blew both of my old laptops with tannerite last year. I am sure someone still has the pic somewhere or you might be able to search the board and find it. I'm not willing to put in that much work.
