Re: Trader... or not.

Ah oui, les references au poissons quand une idée philosophique doit lâcher prise. ;)

Une tendance sur MAACA depuis presque 10 ans. Une chance que tout le monde peut comprendre le prix du poisson.

Re: Trader... or not.

Cher RAB, La complexité de ta pensé est toujours médusante et rafraîchissante pour moi. J'aime quand tu t'exprimes dans la langue de Molière et que tu affiches cette belle retenue langagière qui te sied si bien. Il est toujours agréable d'échanger dans la subtilité, la nuance et le respect et au ri...

Bon c'est l'été. J'y vais d'un p'tit post léger mais qui porte tout de même une interrogation réelle de ma part. Comme disait Nietzsche " Les grands esprits avancent masqués"...

Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

Last night I felt another routine creeping up my spine. North Star officially opens again tonight via a reservation system since our limit of patrons is now set at 20. Last night we thought it best to hold a soft opening in order to test the set up and see how it flowed with 15 to 20 people in the b...

Re: Gottlieb World Challenge Soccer

A beautiful example of this rare game in the North American market.

Mindstorm put it together from many N.O.S. parts from PBR and ofcourse it works flawlessly, but I am not saying anything anybody here in the know doesn't already understand.

Tres bon prix pour une si belle machine a boules.

Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

Where I live, “How are you?” has traditionally been more of a greeting than a question. You’re supposed to say something like, “Good! You?” and then talk about whatever you were going to talk about. In the last three months, it seems to have become a question again. People genuinely want to know ho...
