I'm at Slippery Falls Scout Ranch right now and the salad bar smells like fish from the camp lake, but there's no fish. What should I do?
It could be a burnt electrical outlet.
Surprisingly, when an outlet burns out it smells like fish.
You are a mam of prayer. I would ask his advice. Frankly I'd be very careful what I eat
If you're going to teach them how to be men then you have to teach them how to suck it up. Now get in there and eat some salad man!
Had you pegged for a Boy Scout Troop leader.
Unwillingly. The heat is unbearable. I love scouting, but it's a workout on my otherwise sedentary, computer-programming butt. My youngest son is 11 and he can't go to camp alone until he's 12. It's a labor of love.
At least OK is dry...I go July 21 to 27, here in NC, where we have been raining virtually every evening...humidity about 88%!
Mark, have you ever posted a poll?
Several, just not lately.....and no, I haven't changed user names.
I know you haven't.
You don't seem to like other people's polls. I mean sure, I don't thumbs up everything I see, but I at least know that thumbs up is an option. I'm trying to decide on whether you're just a sour puss, or if its even worse..
What are you talking about?
Bronco - Rob was referring to the low number you show for rating the polls of others. You know, thumbs up or thumbs down?
Don't do that. Only downvote, and only if egregiously bad, for whatever reason. About 5 the whole time I have been on SOH. Can't be bothered with something so inconsequential, and silly, to me.
It is far from inconsequential that you have Never liked a poll enough to express it. I can only hope you learn something here..
That you are pathetically dependent on others 'liking' you for your questions? Sorry, IDGAS.
No, yer not getting it. This is about you. I'm trying to help you. You need to like more in life. It says a lot about you that you haven't liked A poll Ever. Trying to think of a nice way to ask you why you're like that, but maybe yer just a jerk?
Ok..so I failed at being nice, but I succeeded at making my point.
You are obtuse. I DON'T DO THAT. I couldn't care less whether you like my questions, and am bemused as to why it is important to you. Last post by me.
That's probably for the best. Yer sure not picking up what I'm laying down. You..should..try...to..be..happier....it's.. been ... Great..for...me.
Mark's low approval of other polls is due to his not taking the time to rate polls, not that he's Rating them downward. Apparently the algorithm doesn't consider the measure as a % of actual ratings given. It's misleading. Knowing this I regret .....
...I regret making it an issue with ibakes.
Hey bronco. Long time no see. Hope you're doing well.
It's not a lack of taking the time. Not liking one poll says something about his psyche. That's what I've been trying to explain to him. It's like traveling through life without saying something nice to someone. It probably means you're not nice...
You should regret a lot about what you've said about or to iBakes, and even though that almost sounds like an apology from you I somehow just don't think it is.
I personally don't care Rob. I'm not his therapist. He can rate them all or none and I'm okay with it. I'm just happy to have learned how the algorithm works so that I don't falsely judge anybody about it again.
It's not an apology. She's an ass and everything said was correct except the ancillary aspect relating to her rating of polls.
I know you don't care. I think bronco is a Neanderthal but I'm still trying to help him by pointing out truths.
You can call her an ass all you want, but you're the one on the wrong side of history with almost every social issue that exists.
Rob. So you're a self-appointed therapist for bronco? How nice of you, and arrogant. We need more people on SOH that try to fix other people. NOT.
I'm ok with you thinking that about me. Good luck with your therapy sessions. :-)
Again, having a issue confusing intelligence for arrogance. I know I'm right about bronco, I just want him to see it. You're the guy who wanted people to name who they would want to change. I'm just not all talk, I'm trying to do something about it.
I wonder if there's a reason okie hasn't checked back in...
Maybe the salad is so delicious he went back for seconds? ;)
My battery went dead. Charging now.
Okie, any idea what's become of SyrianBaby? I haven't seen her for a while, & she hasn't posted polls for a week.
No. Haven't noticed her in a while. I miss her though. She's cool.
Yes, I noticed she posted a poll & was going to tell you, but I got sidetracked replying to a reply first. Thanks!
This is a trick question. What kind of man-making camp has a salad bar?
The only food in that chow hall should be a roast pig, that you caught, on a spit, and some tree bark.
Very good point!
We had hamburgers too.
Salad helps me get in touch with my non-existent feminine side. It helps me feel like a democrat in a very small and insignificant way :-)
At our summer camp, the salad bar is for leaders only, and kids with religious constraints on the entree.
The Ranger has to kill those, although the kitchen can cook them...
Go find some fresh berries & mushrooms instead!
You're at Scout camp...go find a scout and have him catch you a fish.
Or, go find a scout and make him eat the salad first.
Will it be enough if I just poop in the woods? Remember that Hollywood chick that said she likes pooping in the woods? What was her name?
I never heard about it. Don't bother coming up with her name :-/
She was the little girl in ET.
If you survive it'll probably make for a great story. Tough it!
I say it's fine if it's a camp place. They're... fishy... normally. Pun intended :)
But an off smell there is normal from my experiences.
But maybe I'm not giving helpful advice, and just want a sick buddy *mwahahaha*.
No, honestly, I'd still eat there.
Right now though my food judgement is probably questionable. I'm starving, abd would eat just about anything if it stayed down...
Well, if the lake is nearby, it might just be the lake.
True, but I couldn't smell fish when I was at the lake or even in the chow hall for that matter. It wasn't until I visited the salad bar that it hit me. I ate anyway. Let's see.
It seems like you're in what we call..... A fishy situation!
You forgot the sunglasses!
Best. Show. Ever.
I just gagged
How many women are in the restaurant?
Now that is the million dollar question!
I sort of get it.
It's the camp chow hall. None.
Women's cafeteria right? :P
Then run for your life!
Why run, can someone explain the joke please. :)
A fishy salad bar without fish could indicate an unsafe eating condition.
Or a "fishy" eating condition
He should run because he is in a room with all guys. You got to have some ladies there.
Ewwwwwwww. Run for the hills!!! *flails arms in the most dramatic way possible screaming, fishy salad!!!!!
A man can't live off of a salad bar!
Wait, is it a restaurant or are you at a camp?
Camp chow hall. It's hot and humid here too. No AC.
Then run... Run like Forest!
What are your alternatives?
I could drive about 10 miles to the nearby town, but I'll stick it out. I just wanted to share my misery.
I hope you don't get sick. Good luck!
They probably washed the lettuce in the lake for that seafood essence.
Don't be a sissy. Eat the salad
I ain't skeeeered.
I'm glad you didn't stick around Doopys poll :-((
Where are you?
Busy with camping stuff.
Lol... I'm at home :)
Interesting exchange on "ohtheirony" abortion poll.
I'm having trouble finding it. How old is it?
OhTheIrony. Today or late last night. About men being able to opt-out of fatherhood. Must be a featured poll. Follow him if you can't find it.
Did you find it? I think the convo is over now.
RU upset with me?
No, not at all. I've had about 200 polls hit and I'm trying to get caught up :-))
Did you see cowboys comments in the "do you like your bank?" Poll?
I finally found the poll, good job! Must admit, I giggled.
I didn't see cowboy, but stayed away from the poll. I'll go look now.
I remember his wife posted on SOH once when he got his new truck driving job. She said, "love you honey. Proud of you."
In the "are you happy?" poll, he said "very".
He he he. Ego got stroked. You know I like playing with you like this. Ha ha.
You are full of surprises. :)
I didn't even remember that it was her that did that. :-)
Get the hell outa there!!!
That seems a little fishy.
Dump the salad bar and find a place to go noodling. Get yourself some real fish!
