      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Two and A Half Men

Recommended Posts

If it was on at 9 pm, it would be one thing. But at 8 it's a little PG13 for a PG audience, especially when bookended by the other sitcoms on around it. My wife used to watch it, so I did too, until they had an episode that joked around WAAAAYYY to much about suicide. I told her that was the last time I was ever going to watch it. I'm pretty thick skinned and all for the quick in-and-out joke, but to keep hammering on it the way they did got pretty disgusting. If it wasn't for the endless lineup of ridiculously hot and scantilly clad lays for Charlie, I think alot more people would be looking elsewhere, too. That kid, while being pretty funny, is a pretty bad example of a 13/14/15/16 yr old kid. I know, I know; it's just a show, but push it to 9 so the kiddies have a harder time getting to see a 14 year old puking his guts out from drinking in front of his drunkard uncle, with his plastered Dad giving the OK to the situation.

I'm with BKS. I think it is THE funniest show on TV. It is about the only show that I make time to watch.

I watch the show, I'm not a prude, I don't think it should be pulled off the air, but to me the show has gotten too crude and juvenile. It's almost like they aren't even trying anymore. They just write up a bunch of jokes like we all told each other in 3rd grade and film it. It's just not as funny as it used to be. Jake has become a much better character now that he's older. That's one area that has improved. It's still a good show, just not as good as it used to be IMO.

Family Guy is about the only thing on right now that makes me laugh out loud.

That and reruns of Seinfeld and King of Queens

This is probably one of the best shows on TV right now.

I agree and have thought so since it has aired. Okay it's not for kids, but frankly neither are another 30% of shows out there. I don't have any problem with them showing humor thats intended for adults.

What irks me, is how silly and pathetic all these reality shows are. "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Outta Here"? "More to Love"?!? Who watches this stuff? This is the reason that 80% of my TV viewing are cable shows and sports games. Anyway I really like the mold of sitcoms: Seinfeld, Cheers, News Radio, etc.

Been watching it since the beginning and it's always good for laughs. I would agree with the views on kids watching. Me being in my late 20's and single it's appropriate for my demographic smile

At times charlie and alan's shenaningans get old and jake has turned into a painful character to watch but then they get the wild cards involved and the humor is back. Rose and Berta being the wild cards. Good stuff

Lots of eye candy as well.

The big bang theory is the best CBS comedy these days. Probably need to be a bit of geek to really get it but thats me so I find it hilarious.

Two and 1/2 Men is a very good show. I am a Seinfeld fan down deep down, but this show ranks up there. This is the show of today, Seinfeld was back then...

    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
    • nice shack, love the pic's with the kids and dog!!
    • Still have the cushions and bench seat to figure out, other than that the only thing I am waiting on is the termination cap for the furnace and I should be ready for ice plus a few rattle reels and rod holders.  Just in time as well, looks like the weather is going to be favorable over the next few weeks for us that like ice.  This is only a day house and will stay at my cottage, the bunk didn’t turn out as big as I would have hoped but my 11,8,5 year old's thoroughly think I am wrong, they love it.  I think for lights I am just going to buy some battery powered solar pucks to see how they work.  Being that I used house windows, I was worried about the nailing flange icing up so I cut some 4" angle and welded in some "V's" so the snow doesn't slide down and accumulate on top of the windows I will need to do the same for the termination cap.   Any input is appreciated.
    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.
