      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.

"I'll save you Nell"

McGraw as "El Kabong"

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)

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.

    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction. 
    • I like the .30-.30 because of availability and affordability of the ammo but I think the .35 Remington may be a better overall round. I don't know anything about the .45-70 Gov. though.
