    no, they can to be say it's a salt life, we have no oceans by us. that's like saying ride hard and not owning a motorcycle

    "ride hard and not owning a motorcycle" which people do all time.

    So annoying. Just buy a bike if you think their culture is so cool!

    Agreed. And not a crotch rocket.

    Is there an acceptance committee for this Salt Life club?

    Yes...but you have to come here to Jacksonville....the birthplace of Salt Life. We take you to the Salt Life Food Shack and make you eat a tuna poke bowl while we conduct an interview to see if you are truly Salt Life material. If you pass, you can put a sticker on the back of your vehicle no matter where you live.

    We all know that people in Iowa aren't allowed to visit the coasts

    Thats a Salt Vacation not a Salt Life.

    Does this mean I have to put a sticker on my car's rear bumper "Pop Tart life"?

    Apparently, the answer depends on what kind of car you have and/or where you live depending on who you ask. Other factors may include whether or not you still eat Pop Tarts and your age. I think there is a Committee with strict standards and they will not take into account your senses of irony and humor (if any), nor will they consider whether you may have legitimately lived the Pop Tart life in the past - you know, before the kids and the minivan-and Iowa.

    hmmm This reminds me of all the people I know who dress like bikers but don't own a motorcycle. It IS kinda funny now that I think about it!

    maybe we just need a coalition against coalitions :wink:
    I might've dressed biker-y when I was a younger gal, but hey, it was the 80's after all and back then if you couldn't lift it, you couldn't ride it, & you'd end up in the b!tch seat. At < than 100#'s there's no freekin' way I was able to pick up a bike, (yes, I tried & we all had a good laugh) much less find someone who'd let you ride with them, other than behind 'em signaling :blushing:

    I saw a man walking a pig, on a leash, down the sidewalk. It wasn't a little tea cup pig, or a baby pig but a big *kitten* ready to put a saddle on & let kids ride it pig! My son and I saw an old man driving down the street with a goose in his lap & its head out the window. Welcome to life in Hawaii!

    a motorcycle was coming up behind me, riding between lanes. i turned outward a bit, to make sure i gave him room. sure, riding between lanes is illegal, but i'm not more catholic than the pope or anything. but the suv a couple of cars down turned it, almost knocking the motorcyclist down! fortunately the other car next to the suv made room, and the biker just rode past and waved at the SUV.

    seriously lady, you want to cause a guy to wreck? do you trip people that jaywalk?

    My commute is less than 5 minutes if I catch all the lights.

    This morning I saw a neighbor I grew up with panhandling at the entrance to I95. I happen to know he has brand new shoes on, and a cooler full of beer and food in the bushes.

    Then at the next intersextion (on purpose) there was a dude with a "love Jesus ....." and a lot of writing. When he turned around he had a ventriloquist dummy on his back.

    It freaked me out :noway:

    That is GOOD!


    A few years back I saw a kid playing a trumpet while on my evening commute. He was holding his Music against the steering wheel, with what ill refer to loosely as his driving hand, and his right hand he was holding his trumpet to his mouth and actually playing. Speed limit 65 mph....
