Oh, so sorry to upset the delicate balance here. Guess I'm not allowed in a public forum that you have co-opted.

Oh xxx; you obviously know a lot about comedy; I have not stopped laughing.

And for your info, yes I do masturbate quite a lot. I know you old timers are just jealous, so I was not hurt by that comment.

Does'nt your wrist ever get tired?
It's a shame that you spend so much time jerking off that you probably have no time left to travel and see the world. I quess seeing your own little member is much more fun! I think that you on the wrong website, please check out www.fondlethyself.com!

For what it is worth:

I think many of us get a kick out of the humorous responses that come about by someone posting a question such as lola's. We could all use a few laughs each day!Many of us who have read Elvira's replies appreciate her sense of humor - not to mention the good travel information she contributes to this site!!!!!!!!

I also enjoy Elvira's sense of humor - by contrast, I think a thread like this is REALLY a waste of bandwidth but different strokes - (want to include everybody) in front of the tv or not

Sharon - - is your question serious?

If so, there is no reason for a travel enthusiast to be ashamed of being unfamiliar with hgh tech computer geeky terms.

Bandwidth refers to the aggregate movement of data over any network. It is like the capacity of a highway to move so many cars per hour.

Too much "unnecessary" data moving through "pipes" (in other words, bandwidth being "wasted") that are too small is typically cited as a reason that the internet is sluggish and slow at times.

Even this answer from me to you can be cited as a waste of bandwidth!

As available bandwidth increases (more and bigger, faster capacity) in the US (and the world), there will forever be more junk clogging it up.

Best wishes,

Rex

Actually, Rex, I was serious!
Thanks for your explanation.
Guess one person learned something from this silly thread!

(I was thinking it was some Mis-spelling that I hadn't figured out 'til I saw it repeated...lol)

Oh sure, I post this question and get made fun of...Sharon asks an idiotic question and you cater to her.

Jesus Sharon ever hear of doing a little freaking research. Sorry I'm not in the "in" crowd!

Thanks Rex for answering Sharon's question. I also didn't know what "bandwidth" meant. It's great that we also get a little computer education on this web. Thanks Sharon for asking the question. For those of us(me) who don't use the computer for much other than gathering info, it doesn't hurt to have a little knowledge of the "lingo."

You know what I've noticed? There's alot of cunning lingo on this site.

It's really quite a shame, because it drives away intelligent people.

I hate to think how many more we lost today.

Another Fond Adieu,
Dr. Betty

Dear Dr. Betty,

I'm lost.

Who did we lose here on the board today and why?

Thanks guys...I needed a good laugh. Loving the advice (on other posts that is) and the humor. I'm new, but not offended that I'm not in the club, so..carry on. I'll keep reading to find where to get good french toast.

Good French toast? That's easy. Vermont.

Or maybe I should say "Vert Mont".

Don't ask for it in France. They scarcely know what you're talking about. "Pain Perdu" (Lost bread) is essentially the same thing, but it is an obscure item that few people ever eat for lunch, let alone breakfast.

Just want to make clear that I have nothing to do with this original question. That's someone else usurping my name.

Kidding about the french toast thing. I won't ask for french fries or a french dip either...thanks for the chuckle. I am still curious about the afore mentioned 'cunning linguistics' though...

Fries (frites) in France? Absolutely. They're excellent. Though the French will tell you that they originated in Belgium (where they are, quite possibly, even better). I have heard it said that the term "French fries" originated with American soldiers in WWI who were in Frecnh-speaking Belgium, and didn't even realize what country they were in.

I have no idea of the origin of the term "French dip" - - I think that it originated in some restaurant in the Los Angeles area. Anybody know? Likewise, is "au jus" a term made up in the English-speaking world to add a "foreign" <<affectation>> - - like those slashed sevens?

I don't know.

I hope the original author of this thread enjoyed the responses. I did.

Be more specific about where you are going in Europe and people might be more helpful.
