I think I met Gecko45's long lost nerdy uncle the other day.
My sister had a garage sale. This guy pulls up in a white minivan decked out with (for lack of a better phrase) "pilot car" paraphernalia and radio gear. Having nothing better to do than yank someones chain, I asked him whether the antenna was CB or Ham radio... He replied "oh, it's BOTH" (not happening - two different things)...Never gave me his call sign, even after I gave him mine... Then he went on, unprompted I might add, to explain his "connections" with everything from TV storm chasers, Military ops, how his son got his Eagle Scout badge at 12 years old, yada,yada,blah,blah...
I quit listening.... I even walked off...
Finally, after 45 minutes, Mr. More-fingers-than-teeth decided to leave...
I promptly decided to quit yanking chains on anyone older than 10!!!
