My spider sense is tingling. Do I detect sarcasm? :) Nice to meet you too, by the way.
Sounds like he is into thermometers. You might want to check him out - some of those old Datsun pickups are real collectors items. I saw one around here going for around $800 bucks or so.

KV? I wouldn't invite that guy.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Bad news. It appears that Post #49 represents the first utterance of "yawn" in all of BWOTdom.

After a brief consultation with my legal staff, we believe we may be able to forward a rock-solid back-royalty case.
