I can't stand when people either email or IM me with a very detailed question or questions that require several level of answers on a Friday and then leave for the weekend within minutes of sending their message.

Three days later, they walk up to me first thing in the morning and ask what my thoughts were on their email or IM. My thoughts were that I was out of the office since 3pm Friday and probably gave your question very little thought over the weekend, especially since you didn't make yourself available after sending your message.

I'm onboard with this. Fire Brigade sounds kinda bad ass.

After all these years I still have to shake a flashlight to get it working. Someone should be working on this...

I grew up in Economy, Beaver County and always used "buggy". My mom grew up in Monaca and my dad was from Rochester, PA. So the term definitely is used throughout the Pittsburgh area.

Yup, my GF is from Center Twp and says 'buggy'. I grew up in New Brighton but lived in MD from 1988-2009, so I say cart.

A shopping cart has always been a "shopping cart" to me; "buggy" was used for "baby buggy", though the vehicle similarities are there.

Also, "fudge buggy" sounds like it should be something, though I don't really know what.

websites that present "20 facts about ______________" as a slide show.

For example, http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/03/07 ... 16414.html could very easily be listed on one page.

Its a movie quote so it could be accurate.

However, the a/an thing gets on my nerves too.

I'm sure I've complained about this before, but it happened again today and it got my blood boiling people who go jogging down South Park and have their music up so high that they can't hear you when you're calling out that you're passing them. Gets me so ticked off

Classified ads or want ads with the bare minimum information. Im an avid cyclist and someone started a facebook group where western PA folks could buy/sell/trade bikes & parts. Every day an ad comes up with a picture of a bicycle and the text "make an offer", then the dance begins in the comments; What year is it? What size is it? What model is it? What tires does it have? ...all of the things the seller would want to know if he were buying a bike.

On the mountain bike forum I read a guy was looking for a frame.

Anyone know where to find used/slightly used/demo Canfield frames?
I'd like to build up a budget Nimble 9. My buddy has one and Im tired of him smoking me on down hills


I have a size large for sale in the classifieds.


I'm 5'9" so Large is too big. Thanks for posting up though.


Didnt occur to you to put that in the original post? Next someone will post that they have a medium in green and he'll want orange.

They probably figure that since 1 out of 100 people actually call out that they're passing, there's really no point in paying much attention.

I am glad I do not have a water bill (its included in rent) because I swear my roommate just runs water because it fascinates him that water can be seen pouring out of something seemingly indefinitely.
