Guru...

...not! I see I have "Guru" status now. Let very one know that I am not a "Guru".

None of us are Gurus', we just all have a good time. Keep adding to the content and learn as we go.

Sorry, Jim. We've had this discussion before. The term Guru is yours now and forever. Please forward a photo of your best illuminated anchor-pulpit meditation position for the TF archives.

Guru! What a silly classification. The more you talk, the more authoritative? Give me a break. Better to allow users to classify themselves, if in good taste. (A commander, by the way, is a lower rank than captain.)

I think the Gu in Guru just means you've had the opportunity to get 5200 all over your cloths and hands. It's a right of passage.

5200. Use a tiny drop and then you can throw the rest of the tube away. $17 down the drain.

5200 has the power to leap through time and space. All you have to do is walk within ten feet of where wet 5200 was yesterday, and it will jump through time and space to get on you.

That's why they don't make it in 1oz tubes.

Actually white 5200 is available in 1oz. tubes. It expensive but cheaper than throwing away what's left in a 4oz. or 10 oz. tube.

I'm still only at the 4200 stage. I don't have sufficient accreditation to use 5200. Maybe next year.

Jim, as I've often said, real men use 5200. You've got to be tough to use 5200. If you can survive a Canadian winter, you can use 5200.

Perhaps this will help;

WHO IS JACK SCHITT?
For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!' Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.
Sincerely, Crock O. Schitt

What are the qualifications for veteran, senior or a guru membership...Age? It can't be length of service on the forum because I've seen brand new "veteran members." Boat size? Are these ranks for sale? If so, is there a price list somewhere? So exactly what DO these ranks/titles mean??? Inquiring minds want to know!
