    How many tools have been in that pingulp in the last 12 years?

    #53 10 months ago

    Don’t ask.

    Not many, Tommy was my last game to get a pingulp.

    So easily OVER 9000!

    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    The only abuse that occurs with pingulps is when you accidentally bash your knee into one.

    OMFG. I keep bashing my hand on the pingulp on my Star Trek as I reach for the power switch. At some point I need to move the damn thing.

    Quoted from wayout440:

    I might be the only one who thinks that putting a Pingulp on a game is abuse of a game

    No your not!

    It is only abuse if those spaghettios don't have meatballs with tomato sauce but do have cheese sauce (gross).

    #60 10 months ago

    Anyone ever seen 2 totes 1 cup?

    2 totes 1 cupHOLDER you mean.

    Quoted from bigehrl:

    this is what i call abuse of a game!

    Also bit disturbing.

    I thought the straw did it best!

    The label says original, and I'm not sure how a meatball would fit through the straw.

    Pinfootsies - A goof on Bryan Kelly's "Pin Footies" from many years ago - http://pinbald.com/47901.html
    On RGP back a couple of decades ago whenever you busted his stones you would get a "You B@stard" post back from him. All in good fun.

    WTF!!

    #66 10 months ago

    Different Bryan Kelly. He was a lot younger.

    #67 10 months ago
    Quoted from Taxman:

    Different Bryan Kelly. He was a lot younger.

    Yet even back then dirt still referred to him as "Pops"

    Hate to say it, but he was better looking then too.

    This is also poor etiquette. Working on something and finishing with the pin doing less than you started with.

    Went to a Pinsiders home, he had asked for help with his old Bally. He couldn't get it to finish the re-set. Was there for almost a hour. Sometime between observing the re-set action, looking at a schematic, and moving the pin a few feet. I stepped on the power cord. The game shut off. Looked at the owner asked if he had an electrical tester as I didn't think to bring mine. He didn't have a tester. No power... nothing. While looking at the power cord it had 2 splices inside the cab and 1 splice by the plug end. Told him to replace the cord ASAP, and do not plug it in, until it was changed.

    Most likely I did do him a favor, in preventing his home from burning down.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Well I certain(t)ly can't fit an Old Fashioned glass in a pingulp

    You aint trying hard enough.

    The do make left handed ones...or just take the cup holder off, flip, then spot and tap new holes. Now you have a left handed one that is 4" higher. No need to bend over for your drink any more if you are not a midget.

    Quoted from JodyG:

    ...if you are not a midget.

    Dude, not cool. Don't use the 'M' word or the P.C. police will come down on you big. And this is an "Etiquette" thread.

    And Pinside is known for respectful etiquette..

    Look dude (if I can call you dude) there was a recent PezPunk sighting. I'm not talking any chances.

    Well you really don't know. I could be a Dudette so in that case, I would be 'offended' and very poor PC.

    Or I could be el Duderino in which case that would be ok.

    Only one way to be sure.
