Squamish rules.

Yosemite is a toilet.

A lot of people think that Cali is the center of the Universe.

Nobody climbs anymore.

I have learned my prior existence lacked Russ Rants.
My only problem now is not knowing when my next fix will be.

I knew that a girl would get a doubled butt cheek and extra cellulite in the compressed conformation by the time I was, like, 13. I guess I had better access to the equipment to run the experiment than most of the people here. I can't say the taco has informed my opinion of what was sexy much.

I make and reconnect with friends and get inspired more than I get tech tips these days.

This was an insight into or reflection of something that I already knew to be true and am missing right now that was posted here today:

When I finally surrendered to the granite bench, the parched throat and the whole shimmering clusterf*#k, Id synch up with my life and for the moment experience freedom while being literally tied to a stake.

(Quote from R&I interview w/ John Long.)

It's been a tough couple of weeks, and this one fueled my fantasy of being in my happy place.

I've actually learned a bunch- lots of cool stuff on here: historical threads, TRs, music, social issues(global, my own, & those of others here), etc.

Never know what your gonna click- It's a jambalaya!

I broke my forum cherry here on the taco. I learned that..

Its easy to get your panties in a twist online
lots of people wear panties
I wear pink panties, though I prefer purple
Even though people get their panties in a twist a lot, they can still be nice people
there are some serious badasses out there. Okay.. I already knew that
What I didn't know is that they get their panties in a twist just like the rest of us and can still be nice people

what I just learned

I have a panties fixation.. hahaha..

Cheers everyone. The taco is full of some seriously funny people.

while some people need more cowbell. We need more Fish rants. Okay Okay.. and more cowbell

does anyone ever get confused on the taco and think you are on facebook - I want to "like" a comment and then realise i can't..

anyway - TR ...."Like"

Just the other day I learned about the greatest movie ever made that i didnt even f*#king know about eh! It concerns partying and working in my home town - I've watched it five times in three days and I've watched the original FUBAR movie twice now.

here are a few choice scenes from the original

My mom is awesome. That's what I've learned. She's 77 years old and not all that good with computers, but check out this shot she sent me tonight. I had to talk her through it. She took it last month in Palestine.

hey there say, all...

hmmm, you knowwwww, i would have thought that you all learned all this, uh, 'certain stuff', BEFORE you ever FOUND the ol' taco.... ;)

okay, things i have learned from the taco:

the friday night posting while drunk thread, seems to overflow
into saturday, on through to thursday, and back to friday...
at times.. ;)

there are fabulous photographers!!! here...

all kinds of climbers, of various levels, and they all mix and well,
very well: mainly, when climbing, :)

more gals climb, than i EVER knew... :)

there is such a thing as 'nature sushi fest'... :)
and--there IS such a thing as: facelift for yosemite! :)

climbing history ABOUNDS here... :)
so do bear 46 stories... :)
and 'nose' records... :O

so do some very WILD stories--which fall under history, of course, ;)
(even new stories WILL be history, 'once around the campfire'... :)

and: there is NO place like the taco...
nor, is there anything LIKE you climbers, gathered anywhere else...

this is a 'gateway' to many parts of the world that i'd never
have heard of OTHERWISE, :)

and--i've STILL got a lot to learn, :)

AND, lastly:
chris so patient, tolerant, and kind, and open to
'the versitilities of humans' in a way that helps you
all learn-and-grow, in the midst of what other forums would
just NOT understand... :)

I've learned that even the biggest internet as#@&%e makes me want to help them if they need it, even if they don't want it, enthusiastically, because of who they are...

Although we sometimes see the dark side of folks here; there is more often than not a bright and kind side as well.
