A couple in Wisconsin telephoned police in the middle of the night after finding a man in their basement covered head to toe in barbecue sauce.

You can't hide from the gubnent in BBQ sauce in Wisconsin. You need the cheese. That guy must be a n00b. BBQ sauce is what you use to hide while in Texas. Refried beans in New Mexico, and also southern areas of Texas. Oh, speaking of Texas, oil works in Houston.

Out in Illinois you use voting ballots in and around Chicago, and corn, wheat or soy in the more southern parts of the state. Each State and region is a little different. In Boston you gotta use New England Clam Chowder, while in Maine you've gotta use lobster shells. If you use the wrong camouflage you'll get caught.

Wow...between your stories and Steen's, I don't think I ever want to try dating in TN!

I've had some very nice dates here, thank you. The last two I went on were quite lovely, even if things didn't go any further.

Dman- Haha, You got a problem with BBQ sauce?

BTW, I am not a true Tennessean, just a transplant. And yes, dating in the dirty south is quite challenging most of the time [Eek!]

So....was the 'utensil' one /not/ in TN?

That's kind of forefront in my mind as a 'bad date.' Very glad there are still some fine ones to be found there. [Smile]

OTOH, I [hearts] NY.

Further than what? Unless the thing you didn't go further than was .. um.. bowling in the .. 'gutter', then they weren't lovely.

Well that explains it.
Most dating matches in Tennessee are made at family dinners.

I hate to break it to you, but not grasping the concept that a celibate guy is not trying to go bowling when he goes out on a date is not win.

It's more of an epic fail.

I took your 'worst celibate ever' sig as to mean you were bad at being celibate -- ie getting it on with anything you could.

So when you said look at your sig, I thought you were suggesting you 'bowled' with her.

Which would have been a win.

But if you're actually celibate, I think you are the one with the fail, my friend. [Big Grin]

If having sex is the only thing that makes you feel like you're successful, I feel very sorry for you, loser.

I think so -- my father is still savouring the one I gave him back when it was originally being sent out.

Back on topic..... I learned last week that the US government has been asking OnStar to permanently turn on the microphones of select vehicles so that they can eavesdrop on any conversation in the car. No warrants required.

The also have been doing the same for cell phones. The only thing you notice is your battery drains more quickly.

If you're not scared yet, you haven't been paying attention.

I thought it was the fact that my phone was a bit old...a likely story!

______________________ quantumfluff It is easier than you think, if OnStar activates the stolen vehicle feature, the GPS turns on and sends your location and speed vectors good enough for a cruise missile to blow you away, and no body in the car knows. They also can see the last thirty minutes of black box info from the airbag controllers. Wire tap laws do not apply because the signal is transmitted, however it is illegal to listen in on Cell phone Freqs. unless you are a sworn law officer.

I already knew about triangulation from cell towers that was used to find the Mail Box Bomber as he tooled down the freeway.

Kind of gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling doesn't it. Does this mean we don't have a Fourth Amendment any more? Just kind of gives me the poops.
