I read that, replacing "mustard" with "Miata"...and it described my life on this forum.

To a "t".

What's wrong with my mustard enthusiasm and dedication. It's a whole lot better use of my time and money than **** or catsup.



FYI the Museum in Dijon France is much better than the one in WI.

I went on spadworld.net for info on building a spad. Those coroplast rc planes. After everything was done, i was in 500 dollars, According to them, i needed awesome radios and stuff, better than i have in my mustang apparently. I was still new, i rarely fly the plane, even though it flys great and hauls ***. But still, i'm in deep. The same way.

My buddy has thousands and thousands tied up in remote controlled cars. I mean these things are sick! He just got the latest and greatest electric powered truck and get this, he can flash a tune from his laptop to effect throttle position and sensitivity and **** depending on what speed the thing is going. Wild ****, but once you're in, you're in. There's no way out.

Been through it, with several different things. Guns, custom knives, R/C cars, Sentra SE-Rs, watches, lights, photo stuff...I've escaped several times. Some of those interests died completely (R/C, SE-R's), some I toned down to reasonable levels (guns, knives, watches, lights, photo stuff).

I'm the same with cars, guns, knives, torches, and photography. I guess it's a good thing I don't make more money than I already do! Right now most of my "hobbies" have been demoted to "interests".

Hey, you.... ****** at Lackland, thanks to you I was reading this thread while being near my father-in-law, and he saw that SPAD forum website... I think his life is in paril now, becuase as of a month ago, he got into the RC airplane hobby, and how he just now discovered the power of forums.


As for MT.net... I am chained to this website now from my *****.
