What was June '85? I think it was ox or something similar...

When driving a Classic Mopar, be sure to run over as many Geo/Chevrolet Metros as possible.

I wish everyone luck and happiness!


I was born in the year of the ox, and the month of taurus. Wierd huh? My personality fits both pretty well too.

it originally meant something different than the preversion that the nazis used it as a symbol for.

These are some of thwe funniest horoscopes I've seen.

Ever wonder what horoscopes would be like if the astrologer were just a bit more candid?

AQUARIUS - Jan 21- Feb 19: You have an inventive mind and are inclined to be progressive. You lie a great deal. On the other hand, you are inclined to be careless and impractical, causing you to make the same mistakes repeatedly. Everyone thinks you are incurably stupid.

PISCES - Feb 20 - Mar 20: You have a vivid imagination and often think you are being followed by the FBI and CIA. You have minor influence over your associates and people resent you for flaunting your power. You lack confidence and are generally a coward. Pisces people screw small animals. They are also known for running away whenever faced with a difficult situation, typically screaming and waving their arms in the air.

ARIES - Mar 21 - Apr 20: You are the pioneer type and hold most people in contempt. You are quick tempered, impatient and scornful of advice. In essence, look in the mirror, you are looking at a prick.

TAURUS - Apr 21 - May 20: You are practical and persistent. You have a dogged determination to work like hell. Most people think you are stubborn and bull headed. There's a good chance you are a communist.

GEMINI - May 21 - Jun 21: You are a quick and intelligent thinker. People like you because you are bi-sexual. However, you are inclined to expect too much or too little; this means you are cheap. Geminis are notorious for thriving on incest.

CANCER - Jun 22 - July 23: You are sympathetic and understanding of other people's problems. They think you are a sucker. You are always putting things off, and that is why you'll always be on welfare and never be worth a shit.

LEO - July 24 - Aug 23: You consider yourself a born leader, while others think you are too pushy. Most Leos are bullies. You are vain and cannot tolerate honest criticism. Your arrogance is disgusting. Leo people are always thieving bastards.

VIRGO - Aug 24 - Sept 23: You are a logical type and hate disorder. This nitpicking is sickening to your friends. You are cold and unemotional and often fall asleep during sex. Virgos make excellent bus drivers and pimps.

LIBRA - Sept 24 - Oct 23: You are the artistic type and have a difficult time with reality. If you are a man, you are most likely gay. Chance of employment and monetary gains are slim. Most Libra women are prostitutes. All Libras die of V.D.

SCORPIO - Oct 24 - Nov 22: You are shrewd in business and cannot be trusted. You shall achieve the pinnacle of success because of your total lack of ethics. You are a perfect son-of-a-bitch. Most Scorpios are shot in the back. Most people who kill scorpios by shooting them in the back are scorpios themselves.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23 - Dec 21: You are optimistic and enthusiastic. You have a tendency to rely on luck since you lack talent. The majority of Sagittarians are drunkard dope fiends. In case you ever wondered, no, they are not laughing with you.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22 - Jan 20: You are conservative and afraid of taking risks. You don't do much of anything and are lazy. There has never been a Capricorn of any importance. Capricorns should avoid standing still for long periods of time as they tend to attract pigeons. The only time a capricorn is ever remembered is for farting in church.

Hey dylman.
The rabbit is the best one by far!
It's seen as the luckiest symbol, and it means you're noble, chivalrous, friendly, affectionate yet shy, and will do well in relationships.

I'm a rabbit too.

I think this is the correct Mandarin spelling, but I am not Chinese and am only copying what the TV says:

Gong hei fat choi

"Welcome to the Island of people who know too much."..."Did you really think balloons would stop him?!"
See what I'm listening too.

31337, the is no correct spelling using the roman alphabet.
They're just trying to get as close to the sound as possible.
But you'll never get the right sound unless you use the proper characters.

awww, c'mon digipak, it's just for fun! Mine is probably the least offensive though: TAURUS - Apr 21 - May 20: You are practical and persistent. You have a dogged determination to work like hell. Most people think you are stubborn and bull headed. There's a good chance you are a communist.
I'm not a communist though, at least I don't think I am...

Dude, as cool as those pics are, that is definitely post pumping! You could have just put up a link to the page they are on, instead of bogging down my computer when I am trying to get onto this thread.
