You know. I seem to be the only one not pressing the F5 button like crazy and worrying who'll the winner will be... Kinda odd really...

Don't worry guys, the winner will be announced sooner or later; In a separate forum thread as that is tradition.

I know everyone's excited so here it goes...

Potluck my house 5:30 tonight. Let's just all get together and wait this thing out.  Your F5's don't work anymore-anyway...

Burgers and Brats will be provided.  You want tofu or chicken, you bring it. Oh, and a dish to share. The wife will be making spinach strawberry walnut salad. Just let me know what you're bringing here so we don't end up with too much potato salad or jello. The event is BYOB, but I'll have beer & wine :0

OK I would say that I am pretty sure fat78 really like Dr. Pepper. Oh and I am booking airline tickets as we speak (lol)! Not that it would not be nice but the people on here are across the US, and in Canada as well as a few from several other countries. So I think we need to wait until the plasma beam transporter is finished. I am sure it won't be long, and then we have to wait until they install them at least in most major US cities so a large percentage of us can get there quickly.

Mmmm Dr. Pepper would even be good in ribs, I've used Coca~Cola + cinnamon in water to boil ribs before then add your sauce after and bake/bbq or whatever. ugh, now I'm starving lol.

We need a portal gun instead ;) Actually that leaves me with a good question. If you had a portal gun and could only shoot 1 entrance and 1 exit where, when, why etc? lol

I decided that I would shot the entrance in my in my closet and the exit in a bank's vault. So at night I could sneak in there and draw mustaches on millions of dollars worth of money.

I know for sure we're all winners this weekend now. Ribs for everyone!

Dry-Rub, Sauce on the side vs Dry-Rub and drowned in sauce in the crock pot...whoa... H.S. Simpson Approved.

Oh, I made an executive decision, no corn bread. We're having RickRollz!

Good idea! But how are we going to kidnap Rick Astley.... I mean get the exotic meat so we can make those Rick Rolls?

(Side note: you're not officially Rick Roll'd unless the video plays. Thank god I managed to close my tab before the video played; these things have gotten easily avoidable.)

I know for sure we're all winners this weekend now. Ribs for everyone!

Dry-Rub, Sauce on the side vs Dry-Rub and drowned in sauce in the crock pot...whoa... H.S. Simpson Approved.

Oh, I made an executive decision, no corn bread. We're having RickRollz!

Good idea! But how are we going to kidnap Rick Astley.... I mean get the exotic meat so we can make those Rick Rolls?

(Side note: you're not officially Rick Roll'd unless the video plays. Thank god I managed to close my tab before the video played; these things have gotten easily avoidable.)

Way to go! You'll like this PC. I can't wait for the build video.

Congrats! LBowen.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
