    I think it's more emblematic of someone crying out for attention, while living with a houseful of greedy,no talent, publicity hungry b!tches. It even worked for 15 minutes or so.

    Plus, she's now way too long in the tooth to play "Supergirl". Although I suppose "Supergranny", in a flying wheelchair would have sort of a folksy charm.

    Like they say when they neuter your poor pooch, "this will prevent him from ever getting testicular cancer"! (y) or maybe (n) :D

    No harm, no foul. Perhaps the 15 minutes of fame that tactic gained "her", missed your time zone in the great white north.

    I honestly think she should have changed "her"name from, "Bruce Jenner-Kardashian", to, "Caitlyn Kardashian"., possibly even netting "herself" a reality show, about finding love with Kanye West's grandfather in the process..

    Or as it's often waxed philosophically "what's sauce for the goose, is well, still sauce for the goose".

    Yes, at some point, (and I think more rapidly than their research grant expires), the poop will turn into solid carbon rocks, much like those which filled my Christmas stocking during my degenerate childhood.

    I should just be grateful for what I got though. AFAIK, it was a better class of coal, (Anthracite), than the lower, lower, middle class children got, which was bituminous.

    I think it may stay soft and ,er ,edible ,but eventually there would be no vitamins or minerals ,left in the goo.with out adding stuff to it. it will become just waste .not even the dung beetle will want it.

    I can't believe all you got was coal in your Christmas stocking @captaincranky. But after thinking about that for awhile, I can believe it. My mom told me that she had a hard time keeping me out of the coal bucket. I was born in Illinois. We had a coal chute that lead to the basement. Been a long time sense you picked on me. Thought I would post here and give you a shot. I'm sure you can come up with something.ROFL

    WTF is your post supposed to be, a counterfeit Bitcoin string??

    BTW Admittedly, I do like to suspend the truth in furtherance of humor. As an only child, I got toys, games, and enough refined sugar goodies to cause me to levitate, with my head spinning in a full circle..

    [​IMG]

    Dude, what can't you manage about putting up an image?

    Open the image in its own tab.

    Click "view image"

    Right click on image and click, "copy image address"

    Back at Techspot, click the image icon in the toolbar. (Between "smileys" and the film frame "media" icons. Paste the captured image address into the dialog box when it appears. Click "insert".

    Done.

    Are you doing this on purpose to either make me type more, or just get a rise out of me?

    I added the instructions to my post above. I'm running Opera as the browser. All other browsers should be procedurally similar, if not identical.

    Well, do let us know how it "pans out", pun intended.

    Those instructions are for images online only.

    If you're trying to upload an image from your computer, you need to hit the "upload a file" button. (Between "Post Reply & "More Options"), in the posting box.

    There is a size limit for file uploads.. So, too large a file will disqualify it I'm not aware of the max size. With the older "vBulletin" software, it was only about about 150 KB. This software allows a fair amount more.

    Just use Google 's image search function. Under each image is its site of origin's name. It doesn't limit you as to location of origin. If the image is on the web, Google knows about it.

    Sometimes an image will be blocked for copyright and/or licensing purposes. In which case you'll see an [IMG} in the posting box, and not a picture. If that happens, try again with a similar or the same image, from a different location.

    Do yourself a huge favor, and install the latest version of Opera. There's a learning curve, but it does everything under the sun, and quickly.

    M$ is constantly trying to make you believe they're "blinding you with brilliance", when what they're really trying to do is, "baffle you with bullsh!t".

    Right, that's an image address blocked by copyright limitations. Try another. Images from news organization are likely to be blocked. Images from Wikipedia are always in the public domain, at least for linking purposes.

    As I said, it could be simply too big to upload. As I've never logged in as Boilerhog 146, I couldn't say if they we're picking on either I, we, you, or us...

    The image from your home computer won't appear in your post as a picture outright. You should see a "file attached" click me button to display it.

    It has to come from a server to appear as an image. It's a roundabout process for posting your own images as images. You need to open an account at such a site as "ImgGur", upload your photos to that account, and then cross link to here.

    Using that process, there's no reasonable file size restriction.

    BTW, I just copied the link address from your post, followed my instructions and wah-la, there you have it.
