Quoted from Dee-Bow:

I don't understand why peeps sign their name at the bottom of a post

Old habit from the newsgroup days. Others probably adopted the style.

When I first posted on Rec Games Pinball. Most people had signature lines or nick names. So eventually I started doing it.

After much thought,its official. I would never purchase a Spike Stern. The only Gottlieb SS I would buy would be one fully serviced with all ground mods performed. No longer want Gottlieb EMs.

Me too.

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

I don't understand why peeps sign their name at the bottom of a post like it's an official letter to the pope! We see your name at the top of the post already!

In our case, my husband Paul and I share an account, that is why we sign posts. I rarely do, much to his chagrin. He says I do that so people think that he makes the snide comments. That's somewhat true, but I usually just forget to do so.

I miss the taglines. Had a nice library of them.

For many years, even into adulthood sadly, I thought you had to own a company to buy a pinball machine...

Quoted from Tranquilize:

The way prices keep rising, it won't be long before you have to own a company to be able to AFFORD to buy a pinball machine

#1809 3 months ago

I’m going to send in an op ed article to the NY Times saying how no one is buying pinballs any more. Prices will plummet and we can fill our game rooms .

Quoted from phil-lee:

I’ll take any you’re giving away off your hands!

#1811 3 months ago

The wiring in a Gottlieb pin looks like the string they use to tie cake boxes in a bakery.

#1812 3 months ago

I don’t know what people mean when they talk about the man in the moon. I can’t see him.

#1813 3 months ago

But can you find the man in the boat?

#1814 3 months ago

I currently have many confessions:

1. I have had way too much beer tonight.
2. A tiny chance to see snow here so I had just went and turned the outside light on to look.
3. No f-in snow falling here, and I am so glad, you people up north can keep that shit.
4. But I do like to see a few flakes, just not day in and day out like up north.
5. My internet was down for a while, and I was like ok, when is the ransom message going to appear.
6. Sad that hackers and whatever else is doing so much bs to make me paranoid anymore. AND, all my shit is protected, so no need for that, I just still do.
7. I can sleep all day if I want, so I am going for more beer.

Anyway, just goofing off with a buzz, but for real. I wish each and every one of you a awesome holiday season, and a awesome new year!

The first 5 days after the weekend are the hardest.

#1817 3 months ago

I never looked up www.yourteamcheats.com Website.

But I did get the flu shot. ( my oncology nurse insisted ).

Today I bought and scheduled shipping for my 9th game with no plans to sell any of the other 8.

Then I got on the Pinside Forums and clicked "unvisit" on all the for-sale and restoration topics I'm following so I won't get notifications when they update. I'm also going to make a real effort not to check the Pinside Market and Craigslist everyday.

First world problems! Are we supposed to be excited for u?! Asking for a friend

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Is this directed at me? If so:

a.) this topic is supposed to be a judgement-free zone and

b.) Pinball seems to be a hobby where we always push each other towards "more" and constantly jockey for "newer" and "better." It's kind of toxic and I'm admitting that I've reached a limit and am ready to set healthy boundaries. I won't stop hanging out at the bar with my friends, but this might be my last shot of tequila.

The kids are off at college and it’s just me and the wife at home, but I still cook mountains of food?[quoted image][quoted image]

How far is Warren to Marblehead?

I like whiskey. Too much.

I confess if that was my whiskey collection. I would have a half bottle left.

#1824 3 months ago

I'm concerned about your shelves...

Bottom shelf far right. OGD 114.

I confess that certain things I was supposed to use some money for when I was 12 did not happen and instead that money went into games at the corner store.

Who didn't? I bet everyone on Pinside suffers from this as well....I know I did the same

#1829 3 months ago

Why do people respond to classified adds with, "wish i was closer"?! I wish for lot's of things.. but don't list them on people's for sale add's!

#1830 3 months ago
Quoted from Dee-Bow:

"wish i was closer"?

Cause they don’t know shipping exists.lol

#1831 3 months ago
Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Why do people respond to classified adds with, "wish i was closer"?! I wish for lot's of things.. but don't list them on people's for sale add's!

It allows people to bump their friends' ads, also while expressing a sentiment for the item on sale in case there is one closer.

#1832 3 months ago

I want to go to an arcade where someone has collected all of the poorly regarded toss-off games and/or games from companies that went under.
Cosmic Carnival
Predator
Mafia
Stern
The Punny Factory
Thunderbirds
Alien
Jetsons
Domino Pizza

I find this funny.

Quoted from Don_C:

I thought this was true until I realized it was the flags, injuries, kickoffs, sideline commentary, booth reviews, repetitive/inane commercials, pregame show, player introductions and huddles that were the boring stuff....

I only watch on DVR and I hammer away at the 15 second skip feature - much better! Baseball too... life's too short...

#1836 3 months ago

I love Christmas time, but can do w out all the lil glitter/sparkly pieces that seem to go everywhere...countertops, flooring etc...

#1837 3 months ago

I have a pet peeve with people who use the term/word “right?” when they converse. It’s like they are really unsure of their own actual thoughts, and are constantly seeking validation from others. Right?

Right on.

I was bitching last night that I don’t have all my shopping done and I don’t really have any time to do it. My old lady’s response:

“Maybe if you didn’t spend so much time on your little chat group every night you wouldn’t have this problem”

I hate when she’s right

#1841 3 months ago

I haven't bought a single thing for anyone for Xmas yet.

It's too late to buy anything online and hope it gets here by Xmas so I've doomed myself to actually shopping.

#1842 3 months ago

Aside from one gift, all my xmas shopping has been done in the bottle shop.

#1843 3 months ago
Quoted from Scrimmbo:

What... No Old Grand Dad?

My Dad always drank old grand dad during his younger years and he passed away in 2016 so I always keep a bottle and when I get to thinking about him a lot I usually have some.

Obviously not the greatest stuff but it does hold a special place within me.

In 1991, after many games at a whopping 50 cents per game, I finally got to spin the big wheel on Bride of Pinbot. It awarded me one million. I was too old to cry, but young enough and poor enough for tears to swell.

Hurricane is worse. One of the Awards is 'Absolutely Nothing' and it tells you in a loud voice as well.

The Stern Indiana Jones is more fun than Williams Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure. Fight me.

Quoted from IDrink2Much:

How about I shake your hand instead? I 100% agree. I don't dislike the Williams, but I do like the Stern more.

#1848 3 months ago
Quoted from IDrink2Much:

I've never seen, yet alone played, the Stern one, but I picked up a Williams IJ this summer and I have to admit, I am not gaga about it.
I don't think it will be around long.

#1849 3 months ago

Um...... No?
Confession: last fist fight I was in was 5th grade. I did win though.

#1850 3 months ago

I have never really been in a fight, more like scuffles when I was in elementary school. I still have pencil lead in my leg and above my eye from those.

My confession is every time I see I have a pm message on here I hesitate to open it. I start thinking...when I was on here drinking last night, did I do anything to get moderated about. I try to behave while having fun on here.
