      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 .

You can't beat Yosemite Sam, Tom/Jerry. All of the warner bros. cartoons were great. If I happen to run across one on tv I'll watch it. Flintstones were great,Jetsons. I was a cartoon junkie growing up.

They don't get any better than the old looney tunes. It's kind of funny to watch them now. So non PC and full of violence. If they were made today there would be outrage.

One of my favorites, which is never shown anymore - is the Bugs Bunny episode where is is the squaredance caller for those two hillbillies.

He has them poking each other in in the eyes, wacking each other with fence posts, and jumping into a haybaler.

HOOOOOOLD ON THERE BUBBA LOUIE!!!!!!

One of my favorite quotes that I could nail perfectly as a kid. Used to be able to do Marvin the Martian pretty good too.

I watched a program about guys like Mel Blanc many years ago. I found it fascinating how someone could have so many different voices.

Loved that one. I also liked to watch the one where Bugs and Elmer Fudd were the opera singers.

Or the one where Bugs and Daffy were arguing "DUCK SEASON..........WABBITT SEASON" when bugs turns the table...."WABBITT SEASON"...FIRE!...........BANG.

I especially remember that one also. The other one I remember is the "Where's my HASSENPFEFFER!!!????" episode. I still scream that out to my wife when my dinner is late. wink

Another one I thought was funny was Tom (from Tom and Jerry)has the fish in the water and the fish goes: "sniff..sniff sniff, HEY....Who's cooking fish?"

And Tom replies, "You're cooking.......FISH"

I'm a 47 year old cartoon addict with a passion for history and great writing. This is an awesome thread. Where do you start? Hmmmmm......

IMH(umble)O, there are none better than the WB WWII era cartoons. Great animation. Stuff for the kiddies, stuff for the "grown-ups". The Gremlin one where the plane is falling and falling then suddenly stops. "Ehhhh, you know how it is with these A-Cards". Also, (Gremlin screaming) "IT AIN'T VENDEL VILKEY!!!!!" Sorry, those two scenes still crack me up every time. Daffy Duck as a Commando 'chuting in behind enemy lines. The bit with the phone booth...."Is that you Mert?" C'mon people, if you were alive then or watch them knowing the popular culture of the time, this was FUNNY stuff.

What they accomplished in what at the time was considered a medium meant to only reach children is unbelievable. Yes, it was propaganda. It was meant as a reminder that we were in a war, and that it was a war we did not start (the discussion that FDR starved Japan into attacking is for another forum...one I wouldn't mind seeing though). That we needed to continue to fight not only for our freedom, but for the freedom of the world (Again, continuing to fight in order to resolve the depression via the defense industry is another thread topic). They did this WITH CARTOONS!! Unbelievable.

Close 2nd: Jonny Quest. Very well written with top-of-the-line (for the day) animation. Bad guys going down with an "Eye-eeeeeeeagh". Yeah it's not too PC, but I could care less, either in '66 or today. This cartoon was the bomb in my formative years (I own the DVD's and my son loves them too. It brings a tear to my eye). Remember, back in the 60's JQ's opening credits had a voice-over describing each of the five main characters (gotta include Bandit). The V-O was not carried over in the DVD's.

Even closer Third: Bullwinkle. Like the WWII WB's (without the exquisite animation), something for everyone. The absolutely fabulous tongue-in-cheek dialogue. The post WWII and early cold war imagery (Fearless Leader as a Nazi-like character and Boris Badenov classically cold-war Russian. The boat race on "Veronica Lake", CLASSIC!!! Fractured Fairy Tales, DDR, etc. All good.

Underdog (great theme song)

Roger Ramjet

Casper

The post-war WB stuff through the 60's

The hits just keep coming.

Sorry about the length, but this is a passion with me and has been since I was a kid. (No, I do not live in my Mom's basement. And yes, I do have a job. I would be more than happy to have Mom vouch for me and I can show you my W-2).

Another thread could be how Sid and Marty Kroftt caused the downfall of Saturday Morning Televison (don't get me going on that, I hate those pukes).

Thanks again.

    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
