I've learned that, aside from the political stuff and some name calling, Supertopians are a pretty decent bunch. The Ian Gill fund continues to grow at about $100 a day with people buying expensive mommento biners and gear they probably don't need. Thanks!

The Taco is like a big computer system :-) (imagine that)...

you put garbage in it, you get garbage back out of it. Put in some sugar, get some sweet talk back. Put in some alcohol, get a bunch of drunks jeering you and and hot women smacking you on your figurative ass (or mine, anyway).

Put in something from the heart, and you'll get something back for your troubles.

But if you shovel too much garbage into the machine sooner or later ALL you will get back out is the same garbage you shoveled in there, Glutton Vomit.

Its a good amplifier though... I usually get back 3x what I put in, over time, good and bad.


ps. being stalked, sucks.

I'm definitely going to die

People are pretty cool for the most part

Asking for advice is always funny at first (got to have thick skin) and then useful in the long run

If it's your first post we will probably (see:definitely) give you some sh#t

There are a lot of strong climbers on here

There are a little of people who don't climb on here

I basically learned how to big wall climb from this site (see point #1) and I appreciate any and all advice!

Oh yeah and I like booty

*eKat and Neebee are the world's sweethearts.

*Ron is a broken record sometimes.

*Some people post a lot of climbing stuff and even TR's, some never do.

*Jeremy's got a mom, WOO HOOO!

Having access to those who climbed before me is almost as rich an experience as climbing itself (based on the presence of posters like Guido, jstan, Peter Haan, BBA, rgold, DR, Tom Higgins, Pat Ament, Jogill and so many others).

If you don't climb a certain type of climb, on real rock you're not a climber.

If you don't use a certain type of protection, you're not a climber.

There are a lot of good people out there willing to share a lot of time, expertise, knowledge and love.

A lot of us are really lonely.

An awful lot of places look just like Lembert Dome.

If things ever really got bad, this community would be there for anyone who needed it.

We still don't know if the Stones ever really did country...

*That some things on the internet last forever, and some don't.

*That the MooseDrool has an owie.

*That Guido is a man of many talents.

And yes, that Lembert Dome is EVERYWHERE!

The best of us make mistakes.

Like taking a picture of Everest that is off by about 700 miles. Course that was only 2 minutes and 20 seconds early. Missed it by a smidge.

I learned that whatever the question is, the people of Supertopo will have the answer.

Often half the people disagree with the answer, and vehemently express what the RIGHT answer is. But nonetheless, the question is answered and/or the problem solved.

I also learned that if I had a multimeter, I would somehow know the answer without having to ask.

Some relationships are better left on line.

Many relationships started on line and then moved to real time have been a blast.

Lots of communication "black holes" can occur with "Taco Bites" communication.

Some of the most moving and poignant life and death events have been shared and many touched me and had profound effect on my life.

I learned ALOT about animal health remedies.

If I'm in a political frame of mind I can get a fix.
