BTW I think you should ask HS if you can use this pic for the front page, 'cause its classic
I may have missed your point here, but not remotely similar. She's centered and her feet are under her CM for the most part.

Did I miss the point?

You're very welcome, but I think the statute of limitations is up.  The last post in this thread (before yours) is 2008.

Welcome to Epicski, truthonskis.

One thing you can do when you start to write something is to check the date of the last post in the thread.

It's over the name of the person who made it.  You might not want to resurrect a thread that's years old and dead.

post #137 of 146

Like me — years old and dead. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Ok, not quite.)

Oh well, just joined, because I saw this, and it was pretty funny.
post #139 of 146

Welcome, TruthOnSkis! And thank you for resurrecting this thread. Unlike some, I think it's fine to bring old threads back to life, and I encourage everyone to do it--especially if it prevents another new thread from simply rehashing an important but "same-old" topic that has been deeply discussed before. If it adds new information, new insight, or new dimension to an old discussion, so much the better. That's why we have archives--topics and threads never really die. (Sometimes we kill them off, but that's another story.) 

 

Again, welcome to EpicSki! Enjoy the archives, where you'll find a wealth of information--some good, some not so (it's the Internet, after all)--and plenty of entertainment to boot. 

 

Best regards,

Bob Barnes

Wow, did not know the protocol and proper etiqutte. Point taken. I saw a picture I took, and thought I would just set the matter straight.
Thanks for the welcome.
post #141 of 146

Since this is being bumped, if you post a picture here that is good I will post it on our Facebook page. It's kinda like being on the front page.
