Judging by the smiley face in his post, I'm sure VP did not mean for his comment to sound vicious.

Agreed. There's insensitive, and then there's sensitive.

No, I just have that one lousy fedora and a Finnish Army gas mask bag. And the fedora is even too small. When I get a credit card and enough funds I'll order an Akubra.

And I was joking, I already apologized and my post even had a 'BIG GRIN' smiley. BTW Canyon, do you have a bit lighter pic? All your currently gear looks black.

Finn: Where's your pic? Everybody on the first two pages talk about your pic, but I haven't seen any.

Besides, everybody knows that Finns are always drunken, they always swear and they always stab someone or make a suicide.

Unfortunately I'm working for a government organization that was not too happy when finding out that one of their agents was making himself recognizable all over the Internet so they forced me to take it off...

*Turns into elvis and Marries Ameera*

OH NO!!!!!


group photo...that would be cool, but It comes back to the point of when and wear we can do this, look at who we have:

-ameera, teenager in montana
-aaron H, college student in colorado
-attila, teenager in ohio
-apalehorse, uhhhh, who knows
-canyon, adult in england
-Finn, adult in Finnland
-Gregorie Defense, college student in chicago (who I know makes the journey through ohio and into penn. every break)
-Gilles, adult in Belguim
-Raffey, adult in california
-ren, adult in new england
-Shpwreck, adult in Oklahoma
-Tequilerous, adult in holland
-Webley, adult in New England
-Westford-college student in england

and that's not including the 2003ers, the guys who left after the adventures (zharah, indy 4, hffan2000, dutch) and others...


well, I'm in ohio, so is attila, (and indy 4 if we can ever contact him) I think we could do one where greg stops in during a school break to meet us, and ren and webley (if you're still thinking about cross country) stop in as well (and anyone else who can make it)

then of corse, there are several up in europe...england, holland, belgium, finnland)....you guys are willing to travel a wee bit, perhaps you could do that

it would be good to even it up and get some guys in west US and perhaps even south US, but I can't recall very many raveners off the top of my head who are close enough




so, what do you guys say? wanna try to go with these plans?

It's not what VP said, it was the way in which he said it.

Believe me, I'm all for having a laugh and a joke, but I feel that his comment was insulting.

Everyone seems a bit fiesty, today. Just out of curiosity, are we trying to imitate the Srgt. Peppers Album Cover? Because that is what I think will happen if we photoshop it...

Here's the same picture, only this time lighter. My holster and tie are both black and I was kinda going for a Last Crusade Indy look.

Eek! I didn't see your earlier post. Apology accepted. I know, it was just a...........misunderstanding.

A hot pic of Indy? Yes please!

Now Fisk, when you're all Temple style physique again, I want a picture of you looking just like this with your fedora on, posing in the exact same way. Got that?

My case stands. No offense to you in particular, but I am not sensitive, and sensitive people drive me crazy. Besides, it often seems to me that people who seem to be "sensitive" are merely using it as a facade to get across a point or what not. Indeed, If I were VP, I would take your allegation that he insulted you (even though he didn't) more sensitively than the insult in the first place (which would just bounce right off of me). Again, no offense to anybody, just my 0.02 rupees.
