"Tolerance - and acceptance - of differing opinions and feelings does NOT indicate weakness, as many people seem to believe, these days."

You are completely wrong about this and I will never agree with you.


It's not just good..

...it's good enough.

Well, clearly, you are incapable of rational thought.

And your mother smells of elderberries.

Being a member of this forum taught me to think before I type. The things that could push my buttons and effect my posts have gotten fewer and fewer. I've been here a while "o)

It's no effort for me to maintain my cool in face to face situations, and it's always been that way. Once I entered the cyber world the tells that I intuitively read and assimilate was like missing half of the conversation, and my mind wasn't so good at filling in the correct context.

Most of us will have our buttons pushed from time to time, I deal with it by opening a word processor and typing out my response, then instead of hitting Submit Reply I hit delete, gets it out of my system and allows me to continue to post on the FDP.

A couple of ruler slaps on my knuckles in the early days pretty much got me in line. There are a few posters here that excel at pushing buttons, but really, who cares if they don't like Harleys "o)

1980+/- I did some work at Hef's house. I was there for a couple of hours and received a tour of the grounds and out buildings. Missed the girls laying out on the back lawn in front of the pool by a day. The Grotto looked bigger in the Mag. Barbie house was rustic. Tennis court, Play room with the cushion floor and mirror ceiling, arcade games. Redwood tree on grounds and could see Jack Benny's house from the circle drive. Originally owned by Mr. Lett who founded the Broadway dept. stores.

While touring the gym was shown the ecstasy chair. The tour ended when I asked how to use it. Dumb question I guess.

In the mid 1970's while working in Lake Tahoe as a bellman, I unloaded the luggage from Hef's jet. It was shinny black with with a white Playboy Bunny on the tail. Sexy. Barbi Benton was working the showroom at the Sahara Tahoe; checked her mom into the hotel(she was very proud of what Barbi had accomplished).

Hefner had a great life and enjoyed many of finer things this world has to offer.

May he Rest In Peace.

In the early 80's I was working in Century City and there was a Playboy Club at the base of the Century Towers that we had a membership to (I worked on the 44th floor). Let's just say that Hef deserved all the thanks I could give him for that wonderful little club. And that's my objectify opinion.

In the late '80s a Playboy Club came to town, and my Sheriff's Office got the security contract.

There were exceptions, but many of the bunnies who came in the back door to work their shift were pretty skanky, and I'm being kind. But they would slather on the makeup and slip into that costume and look pretty darn good by the time they hit the floor.

One of the exceptions was a real sweet girl who later married one of my fellow officers. She didn't have much good to say about many of her fellow bunnies.

And then there was that night at the Playboy Club in Chicago, but I was going through a "scotch phase" back then and don't remember much of it, unfortunately.

One of the few Playboy memories that I have is, when one of the guys from work brought in the Vanna White issue.

That's all I got....

My brother and sister in law worked at the Playboy Club Casino in New Jersey. Patty (sister in law) was a 21 dealer and was paid extra each shift if she wore the bunny outfit. She was a knockout with and without the bunny suit. However, in the bunny suit she made better tips vs the regular black and white dress code of the casino.

We're taking this way too seriously. Hef was at his best when he wasn't taking himself too seriously and at is worst when he was.

Just like us...

Hef's life provided a vicarious look at an odd combingation of "lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and "Weird Science"

Hobnobbing with the elite and conjuring up mythical beautiful women seemingly out of thin air.

C'mon who didn't want to be Hef for a day back in the 60's - early 80's?

Is maybe a potent American.

I enjoyed Playboy when I was in intermediate and high school, until I found out I much prefer the artistic stylings of Larry Flynt's publications!



PS, I guess this brings new meaning to the word "stiff" when referring to a deceased body.

Sorry, Steve M made me say it!

I have nice things. I live in paradise, I have insanely cool guitars, a motorcycle that is a blast, every humble pie album, and scotch whisky distilled in the 60s and 70s.

Snortwangling is never but always allowed.

Snortwangling happiness is snortwangling slavery.
