  2. I believe that it is true also that remaining businesses in the area must raise prices to reflect increased cost of insurance and higher risk. This contributes to: "the high price of being poor" which prevents conditions from improving.
  3. I am sorry to say that my life was not that simple. My mother divorced while I was on the way and remarried prior to my arrival. Both men were very much part of my life. What I called either one at any given moment depended on how strict he was being, which other people were present and how much I wanted something. For the sake of the thread: the phrases: "a bun in the oven" and "in a family way" are not as popular as they were at one time.
  4. I apologize that this is so very far off-topic for the thread but I wonder if any person can tell me if there is an equivalent to: "biodad" to denote the man who was a father in all sense except biology.
  5. Do I truly have to use Comic Sans to indicate when I am trying to be funny?
  6. Such machines usually have a tilt sensor which does not allow them to operate if they do not remain upright.
  7. Truly classical! I thank you for posting that. I am ashamed to say that the songs to which I have been listening recently are quite more 'Earthy' than that even although they are mostly set at sea.
  8. It is not like that. He is teasing me because a friend from home sent newly made CDs of classic sailor songs of dubious propriety. I will admit that I may have been playing them a little excessively for his taste and use 'repeat' frequently for some which are great fun. I did hit him with a rubber chicken for his impudence. That does make me feel a little guilty because it was a gift from him to replace my old one which had become quite tattered and no longer squawked.
  9. I am very happy! This is finally a seemingly-legitimate reason for me to post my favorite song about shore leave. It is the most popular Star-Trek-based Filk song. No science fiction convention is complete unless they sing it at least once. It is best to imagine this performed by a guitarist/singer with a sympathetic voice being accompanied by at least eighteen people with IQs in the mid- to upper-140s who have not been sober since lunchtime. Yesterday. Kazoos are also encouraged. Banned From Argo by Leslie Fish When we pulled into Argo Port in need of R & R The crew set out investigating every joint and bar We had high expectations of their hospitality But found too late it wasn't geared for spacers such as we Chorus: And we're banned from Argo, every one Banned from Argo just for having a little fun We spent a jolly shore leave there for just three days or four But Argo doesn't want us anymore Our captain's tastes were simple but his methods were complex We found him with five partners each of a different world and sex The shore police were on the way -- we had no second chance We beamed him up in the nick of time in the remnants of his pants Chorus Our engineer would yield to none in putting down the brew He outdrank seven space marines and a demolition crew The navigator didn't win but he outdrank almost all And now they've got a shuttlecraft on the roof of city hall Chorus Our proper cool first officer was drugged with something green And hauled into an alley where he suffered things obscene He sobered up in sickbay and he's none the worse for wear Except he somehow taught the bridge computer how to swear Chorus The head nurse disappeared a while in the major dope bazaar Buying an odd green potion guaranteed to cause pon farr She came home with no uniform and an oddly cheerful heart And a painful way of walking with her feet a yard apart Chorus Our lady of communications won a ship-wide bet By getting into the planet's main communications net Now every time someone calls up on an Argo telescreen The flesh is there, but the clothes they wear are nowhere to be seen Chorus Our Doctor loves Humanity; his private life is quiet The Shore Police arrested him for inciting wh0res to riot We found him in the city jail, locked on and beamed him free Intact except for hickeys and six kinds of VD Chorus Our Helmsman loves exotic plants; the plants all love him too He took some down on leave with him and we wondered what they'd do The planetary governor called and swore upon his life That a gang of plants entwined his house and then seduced his wife! Chorus A gang of pirates landed, and nobody seemed to care They stamped into the nearest bar to announce that they were there Half our crew was busy there, and invited them to play But the pirates only looked at us, and turned and ran away Chorus Our crew is Starfleet's finest, and our record is our pride And when we play we tend to leave a trail a mile wide We're sorry about the wreckage and the riots and the fuss; At least we're sure that planet won't be quick forgetting us! And we're banned from Argo, every one Banned from Argo just for having a little fun We spent a jolly shore leave there for just three days or four But Argo doesn't want us anymore. There are videos on YouTube of this being performed but I am sad to say that I find them all lacking any verve.
  10. I am sure that lawyers, guns and money will get me out of trouble.
