Thats really a misnomer as it implies that there is things worthy of note that I dislike . What I like is that you can talk to a man who measures his 22lr rounds with a caliper about off hand shooting and he knows where you are coming from . I used to work at a range where we had world class shooters who had special shooting jackets that restricted movement so as to keep themselves in proper shooting form . Hey whatever rings your bell and in truth I would have liked to try one of those 500 dollar straitjackets just to see what it was like . My point is you couldn,t talk to this man about anything but his style of shooting . I did cater to him as he put in the hours and was dedicated to his discipline . I made sure all the lights in his shooting lane were new and that his computerised target sytem worked reasonably well . Maybe it took monovision on his part to keep himself in focus .

I think it takes a worldly man to see and accept diffeences . I have stopped looking down my nose at those who focus only upon themselves as I too saw the world from only my point of view at one time . I am not the most tolerant man . I have learned that tolerance and being able to see the other person,s point of view is a rare gift . That having been said , this gift is not in short supply here .

I am going to post a short message after this one as it may get lost in the shuffle even though it is directly related to this one .

I am not tolerant of lactose. I have learned that lactose tolerance and being able to drink more than one glass of milk per day is a gift. ;) :) :rolleyes:

Thanks for this post. Just before I read this I was stewing a bit over a silly issue that involves someone who fits that description. I know better, but sometimes my minds runs down the path before I notice:eek:

Nice Post:thumbup:

Yes. Bruise has done it again. Fingers of iron, the grip of steel, the hands of.....DEATH.

Well, I read a lot of comic books in my younger years.

Can a Masseuse trouble a nerve ending so that further massage is called for? Or how about a nerve of paralysis?

Good thing I didn't think of that!:D :D :D

I don't know. But I did read in my book last night that you can damage the valves in someone's veins if you do something incorrectly. That'd ruin your day I betcha;)
