yes, jaclaz, i knew that you weren't making a derogatory pun with "boar".

 

since i knew that you won the Italian "Sweetheart of the Year" award, which started in 2008, for the years

2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014.

 

Unfortunately for you, Pee Wee Herman, who has dual American and Italian citizenships, won the award in 2012.

 

I live in rural West Virginia, USA, where deer are a big problem for motorists -- especially at night.

 

At all times of the year, you always see deer carcasses on the side of the road(s).

 

My next-door neighbor hit a deer at night with his BMW, and it broke his windshield, and tore off his front fender.

 

The great thing about living in a rural area is that I often see, up close, packs of 4 or 5 white-tail deer moseying across my front yard.

 

But I'm puzzled by the fact that they *all* have their white tails sticking straight up in the air, in the frigid cold of the winter time.

 

That is, they don't cover their hiney-holes with their tails in that extremely cold weather.

 

As you know, Albert Einstein *unsuccessfully* tried to expain this phenomenon in his Unified Field Theory.

 

Do you have an explanation for this white-tail-deer behavior?

 

Thanks in advance for the edification,

Benny

I thought Roadkill cuisine was rather common :unsure: :

particularly in West Virginia:

Yes, jaclaz, Roadkill Cuisine is what I subsist on *entirely*, but I did not want to mention that, because you might have thought that I was an uncouth redneck.
 
I always try to hit, and kill, with my car, deer, moose, bear, elk, armadillos, raccoons, skunks, and birds.
 
But the tastiest road-kill cuisine is kangaroo, which is indigenous to West Virginia, and only found here, in this state, and *nowhere else*, as you probably know.
 
Once, when driving down the road, I spotted a big squirrel up in a tree. Well, I immediately drove off the road, hit the tree, drove up the tree, and killed the squirrel. It totally wrecked my Lamborghini, and I had to spend two months in the hospital recovering from my injuries, but it was well worth it, because, as you might know, squirrel *eyebrows* make the tastiest-of-the-tastiest of the roadkill cuisine.
 
But I never hit a chicken, because I have great reverence for the "Why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes, and I sense that it is Divine Will's dictate that I should let the chicken go ahead and *cross the road*.
 
But the main reason I never hit a chicken is that they have an extremely fowl foul-tasting meat. That's why *no one* ever, ever eats chicken meat. The thought of eating chicken meat thoroughly disgusts me. UGH!!! UGH!!! UGH!!!
 
And one day, some drunk Italian ran over, and killed, my dear pet opossum:

z_Dead_Opossum.jpg
 
Larry
 
That's my name.
 
Not the name of the opossum.
 

His name is "Squishy",

as you can clearly see,

if you closely examine his tattoo,

which is located on the underside of his tail.
 

I miss you so, so, so, so much, my dear Squishy!!!
 
RIP
 
But, nevertheless, I plan to cook him and enter him in "The Autumn Harvest Festival and West Virginia Roadkill Cook-off".
 

A sincere question: If I eat my dear Squishy, will that turn me into a zombie?

First, Flasche, on this thread you don't hafta worry about intersectin' NOTHIN'

 

Thanks for sharing your videos. They were great and funny.

 

Honey Boo Boo is, indeed, a charmer.

 

It appears that Honey Boo Boo's mother has gorged herself on many, many, many, too many roadkill feasts.

 

If Honey Boo Boo would happen to be standing in the road, and got hit and killed by a Mack TruckTM......

 

well, I have 2 very serious questions:

 

#1 -- would the Boo Boo family chop her up, cook her, mix her with Van Camp's Pork and BeansTM, and eat her?

 

#2 -- if the Boo Boo family did eat Honey Boo Boo, would they all turn into zombies?

 

In addition, is the following proposition true or false:

 

z_pork_and_beans.jpg + Honey Boo Boo = yummy roadkill feast

 

???????????????????????????????????

 

Larry

@Flasche:

 

Since I don't know you very well, can you prove that you are human and not a spambot?

 

Follow the qualifying-question instructions below.

 

If you don't know the answer, simply refresh the page to get a new question.

 

GOTCHA!!!

 

(lol)

 

Seriously, if you don't know the answer, just ask jaclaz,

 

because he *always* brags that he knows EVERYTHING.

Well, I worked out the solution to the math question in my last post (and I double-checked it four times).

 

My solution is:

 

"Rumpelstiltskin"

 

But you have to do a triple Laplace Transform and a Fourier Series waveform analysis coupled with a string-theory dipsy-doodle to convert my answer to a number.

 

Let's see who is able to get the CORRECT ANSWER the quickest.

 

The prize: a big ego boost on MSFN.

Well, it has been exactly 6 months since I made my last post, in which I presented a (very simple) differential equation to solve:

[d/dx f(x)] = ?, evaluated at x = 2pi.

But no won was able to provide the correct solution,

except me,

who showed the correct solution, 0, below my name-designator, Larry.

So, I guess I get the prize, which is mentioned in my last post.

 

This prize is, indeed, a very great honor, and I'll cherish it forever.

This prize is almost as great as the prize I won 8 years ago:

I finished in 12 th place in the fifty-yard dash in the Special OlympicsTM and got a very pretty ribbon.

(There were only 12 contestants in the race, but I still feel very honored.)

WOW, jaclaz, you are always right on target with your picture links!!!

 

That is a picture of the individual who finished in 11 th place in the Special OlympicsTM 50-yard dash, mentioned in my last post.

 

He got drunk, passed out for 3 hours, and then got up and crossed the finish line.

 

I forgot to mention in my last post that it took me 5 hours to finish the 50-yarder, and then I collapsed as soon as I crossed the finish line from the strenuous exertion.

 

I was told in the hospital that I suffered brain damage from all that anaerobic activity.

 

Now you know the reason why my posts are so brilliant stupid.

@LostInSpace2012:

 

Well, I guess I can make you a new signature, but it's going to take quite some time, I expect. In addition to what I describe in the next paragraph, I've really got a lot of other stuff going on now.

 

I just got a new computer with Windows 7, and my old NVIDEA graphics card wouldn't fit in the new computer. With the old card, I could choose a screen resolution of 848x480 or 1280x720. These were the only 2 resolutions that made a square created in Photoshop actually look like a square instead of a rectangle. I used the lower resolution. With the new NVIDEA card, only 1280x720 is offered, and everything looks teeny-tiny now. I really can't see details clearly, at all, as I could before. It looks like userbars are now a lost cause, at this point, I guess. Zooming up the image in Photoshop to make it bigger, just makes it look blurry. I've lost the ultra-fine control.

 

NVIDEA geeks, 1, Larry, 0.

 

Please post your request in THIS THREAD, because that's what it's for. It gets confusing, for me, jumping back and forth. When I get it done, then you can always make a post on your signature thread, and reference each of the posts involved in the creation here on this thread -- that is, if you want to, of course.

 

And please provide COMPLETE details as to what you want -- background image, bottle, other images, pixel size of the signature, please go to dafont.com and pick out 2 or 3 True Type fonts you like (and tell me), and I can download them from there, etc., etc -- the whole kit and ka-boodle -- so that I can basically paste everything in to make your signature. That way, it'll be simpler for me, and you'll be sure to get it exactly as you want it.

 

As of yet, I haven't tried making ANY graphics with my new OS and graphics card, but I think larger images, like the 380x100px MSFN maximum signature size shouldn't be too much of a problem. I hope.

 

Larry

WOW, LostInSpace2012, that signature is SUPER-DUPER-FANTASTIC.

 

It's well-laid out, intelligent, and super-funny.

 

There is no way I can make anything better in a million years.

 

The only thing I noticed is that the black border -- if you used a border -- doesn't go on top of the fruit on the lower right of the image -- and also on the top of Darth Vader's helmet. But maybe you wanted it that way (?).

 

If not, I can easily put the border on top for you in Photoshop and post it here.

 

Just let me know.

 

Thanks for congratulating me on getting a bunch of headaches new computer with the GEEK de-evolution of Windows 7.

It be suckin' big time, IMO.

thanks Larry, it's alright, I'll just leave the sig alone for awhile. Then go back to peewee or something. Maybe I'll combine peewee and darth.

Hello, LostInSpace2012:
 
Since I now have my new Windows 7 working the way I want it to work, I went ahead and made a signature for you, incorporating Pee-wee Herman into your current Darth + Joy bottle signature, as you suggested that you might do, in an earlier post.

Please don't put any significance in the fact that I put Pee-wee down with the rest of the fruits -- unless you want to, of course -- lol.
 
I made 2 versions: one without a border, as you have in your current signature: and one with a black border.
 
Again, I can't over-emphasize enough the fact that you made a fantastically witty/funny image with your current signature.
 
without border:

darth_peewee_no_border.jpg

with border:

darth_peewee_with_border.jpg
 
Of course, you don't have to use these if you don't want to.

 

Larry

 

P.S. I'm including another version with a border, because the one above doesn't show up on my monitor with a border at the bottom. So, the image below has a 2-pixel wide border at the bottom. It shows up, but it is not as dark as the border at the top and the right side.

 

darth_peewee_with_border_2.jpg
 

Added in Edit:

I've found that whether or not I can see the border on my monitor depends on what zoom I have on the page -- that is, how many times I click Ctrl+. At the maximum zoom, I can see the borders clearly on all 3 images.

 

How does this puzzling (to me) situation look to you?

I messed up somehow, and the above post was posted 2 times.

 

So, I edited this duplicated post to remove the text.

 

Please delete this post.

 

Sorry.
