:D I was raised in the Chicago suburbs, where the term, "guys," was also unrelated to gender. I can't tell you how many times I've typed the word "guys" in messages here, and then thought it might offend someone, and replaced it with some other phrasing! :D :D :D

Well you "guys"Face it. We have just all dated ourselves. We have shown we grew up back in the 60s (give or take a decade or two) when guys could mean all of "mankind". I think we would have to be younger to take offense. Actually, as I read the last few posts ComputerBob (Why do I always want to type ComputerBop?) I had to go back through all the posts twice to make sure I was not the one that started using "guys". Or was I?Thanks one and all for keeping me entertained. Inform - I agree with LilBambi. I figured it had come from clipart somewhere since it looked so professional. Nice to have an artist in the family, isn't it? As you can see by my avatar of the week, it isn't me in my family!

In the words of a popular song a few years ago, "Isn't it ironic?" that many young people would be offended by the harmless term "guys," but many would not be offended when their generation refers to women as b****** and h***? (I wasn't censored -- I added the stars myself)

CBOh man can I relate to wanting to post "guys" in messages, but I catch myself before I do so I don't offend the ladies of SNFL. I see the word "guys"as a term that includes everyone also.

Now that I've thought about it some more, I realize that, the first several times that I stopped myself from using the word "guys," it was because I didn't want to offend Fran (LilBambi) - Julia, I don't think you were here yet at that time. Anyway, now it turns out that Fran uses the word "guys" the same way I kept myself from using it! <_< ;) B)

Horrors.... Do we all march to the same drummer? All of us think of "guys" as a generic term?

There are a couple of pockets in Missouri where there is a possessive plural: your alls. It took many years to remove this one from my vocabulary. :D Usage: Is that your alls truck parked in the alley behind the house? Where are your alls kids today?

My Avatar: Chess Knight (guess what game I like?)I didn't see where anyone ever actually said what Stryder's avatar was from the first pages. It's the logo of the Indiana Pacers basketcase, er, basketball team.

Hey teacher I think your art is great. Thanks my wife's passion certainly brings us joy and fosters a creative atmosphere in the house. She has taught me that anything we create is wondeful. I look forward to next weeks avatar. Christopher B)

Well, I know in Western PA, it comes out more like YUNZ , as in HEY YUNZ GUYS!!! , which you would, of course, yell to a group of guys AND girls, too. in Western PA, that is. ;) Maybe that's only in SOUTH western PA.

Hi, Hadituptohere ~That is a photo of an F/A-18C Hornet jet fighter taken by Ensign John Gay on July 7, 1999 when the jet flew by the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier Constellation at about 750 miles per hour at only 75 feet above the Pacific Ocean.The picture shows a vapor cloud as the result of moisture condensing in the conically shaped wave trough just behind the shock wave. This cone is caused by the sound source - the jet - traveling faster than the sound waves that are produced by it can travel.You may click here for cool glimpse of a similar experience in filmed action. tomcat.gif

Hi, Hadituptohere ~icon_painter.gif Since your avatar was distorted because it was squeezing 178x128 into a 128x128 area, I took a quality 800x600, resized/resampled it to 128x96 to maintain proportion and then added a 128x128 transparency to it so it will fill out the designated area fully w/o distortion.Just right-click this image, 'Save Picture As...' to your computer, then go to your user control panel and upload it to the forum here.                                                        FA-18C-Hornet.gif

My avatar is our trusty dog, Sattie, which is her nickname. If anyone can guess her full name, I'll have to change my password. ;) I picked her for starters, 'cause she's still a bit peeved over the introduction of our daughter into the family: just over 2 years ago. Since she's 7, she never feels she gets enough of our attention or energy (like she did before), so I thought this is a good way to put a lot of that out to her. She's also refered to as the "first child" or the "black kid". Very intelligent animal. too much so.She's 1/8th wolf, Black Shepard, German Shepard, and some mix from the father who was found and no one really knows what he was. rest in peace, Rocko. Please , no one tell me she's a Labrador.Parents and Pet owners, we can go on and on about our "kids" for hours. Show you hundreds of pictures and never think you could even get bored!! ;)

Do you keep facts like that in your head all the time? I'll bet it was just a good guess. ;)
