It is my pleasure to announce that Slaphppy7 have joined the mod team.

I know many of you think this is way over due. But better late the never, right ? ;-)

Let me be the first to thank Slaphppy7 for joining the team. I am sure you will be a great addition to the team.

Congrats. I saw people congratulating you on your new position on your 40g thread and thought this was at work - you know, the place that pays you so you can have fish. Wondering how I missed that. Now I see...

That is too funny, thanks Sue.

Believe me, at my "work", I've taken on much more responsibility in the 7.5 years I've been there, but a new position, I'll never have...unless I apply for it...which could happen, if the $ is right...LOL, that was a joke, I work for the State


41802 to our new Mod!!! Many congrats and very well deserved!

Thanks Laura!

Isn't there a requirement that mods have at least 5 tanks, one of which must be 75g or greater? Better to share their experiences with others.

Boundava
07-16-2015, 02:04 PM
Well the worst thing is the dentist did nothing but keep me there waiting for 45 minutes and then charge me $35 for it. To fix the issues would be beyond my insurance means for this year.

Slaphppy7
07-16-2015, 02:08 PM
What a waste of a day...mine is bad about that too, 20-30 minutes for the hygienist to clean them, then another 30 or so waiting for him to come in, prod around for 5 minutes, and tell me everything is fine

This one should be printed out and posted on your fridge, or somewhere. Maybe under Mrs. Slap's windshield wipers? You just stand back and shrug, telling her it is out of your hands.

That sofa's days are limited.

My thoughts exactly. I think with the amount of posts Matt has accumulated, 125g tank is the only way to go!

Well yes, there's that. I'm also interested in seeing this "look" you speak of. Surely, that would happen.

"The look" cuts deep...to the very core of my being...hair on the back of my neck stands straight up just thinking about it

Is this a request or a directive? I want to know for any future mistakes I might make.

Slaphppy7

I'm still trying to figure out what "chnage" means....

Spot on, Steeler!

When I joined the Community (and the hobby), Slap was right there helping me through that sometimes overwhelming period when you have a gazillion questions and unsure of everything you're doing. He has given me tons of great advice, never led me down the wrong path, and I have come to trust and rely on his judgement (although I'm still fighting him over the HOB filter brands lol). He is a great resource and always peppering the forums with his wit. Although friendship has a slightly different flavor here on the internets, I consider Matt to be a friend to me.

Rock on, bud, and congratulations!

Now that I've kissed some tush, I expect to sign in tomorrow and see 12 trillion dollars in my bank.

Slaphppy7
07-17-2015, 11:10 PM
Thanks very much Boof.

The advice I give is a "pay it forward" type of situation, TBH...when I joined the AC in April of 2013, I hadn't a clue what I was doing, I just wanted to help my daughter keep a tank that fish could actually live in...because they were dropping like flies at the beginning.

Uncycled tank, "cleaning" the filter every other day, test strips...what could go wrong?

All of the excellent info I was given here was free of charge, helpful, and very friendly and welcoming. And I've made some great friends in the process, you included.

I just want to keep that tradition going here, help one another, have some laughs, and enjoy this awesome hobby.

And the "tush kissing" is not worth the one meeeeeelion AC points I would consider it to be.

But you can keep trying :hmm3grin2orange:

Oh man that was rich! Forgive my ignorance, but who were those guys? The one who couldn't stop cracking up looked a bit familiar.

I've seen a lot of people try to act wasted in shows/movies, but that guy nailed it and didn't break character!

07-18-2015, 03:02 AM
Your almost as old as me, you have to remember Dean Martin and the drunk guy was Foster Brooks, Foster made a living out of playing a drunk for the reason you said ;-)

Dean was as popular as Frank Sinatra in his day.

*smacks head*

Now I feel like a dunce. Dean Martin...it's been so many years since I've seen him in anything, I didn't even recognize him for who he was.

Foster Brooks, however, is a new name to me. I'm going to have to dig up some old vids on the interwebs tonight after the baby goes down. I miss these kinds of older shows. A lot of tv nowadays is garbage. I can't even watch SNL anymore...and I used to watch that show all the time.

Anyway, sorry to derail your thread, Slap. Thanks for the info, Steeler!

steeler58
07-18-2015, 03:12 AM
Dean was a good singer and okay actor made some decent westerns with the likes of John Wayne and James Stewert,

Much more Foster Brooks here: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=video&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCMQtwIwAWoVChMIhPL_mdrjxgIVTymICh2mqwxV&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DNTR hKcjJHOU&ei=fsOpVYS7Gs_SoASm17KoBQ&usg=AFQjCNHDN08DQbafbO3YigcdmSYf1TwouQ&bvm=bv.98197061,d.cGU

This thread has been rail-free since it's inception.

Rampages?...very close
Requests?...many
Ridiculousness?...depends on who you ask

Rewarding?...more than I'll ever be able to comprehend

But nothing about "rails" yet, until you came along

Thanks for the new "r" word!
