    ttazzman I was planning on similar. Kudos on pulling it off before I got around to it. So far, you deserve the prize.

    Unh, yeah. I'd say we need a ruling on the meaning of this:

    I [assumed] misty meant display of GIM in any media.

    But...

    Wait a minute here misty. You gotta get in control of the situation here, it's yer contest. I think Tazz gets a pass for artistic expression - better than words on a t-shirt.

    Hey again folks, we have an update in our festive pictorial race. It appears that the infamous and stoic Bunga man has woken from his Winter slumber and decided to flex his mighty wealth in a bold and antagonistic display that screams IT'S ON! Don't blink folks. This is gonna be a good close race.

    -Yes John I remember Bunga's energy getting to several members in the past simply making brief appearances in the Metal Detecting threads. Seems those Michigan waters are a trove for Modern Day Warrior Pirates. Jealous victims are constantly seen muttering negativity when he's around but seems to have a pretty solid fan base. It's gonna be tough however to compete with twin 357's though John.

    Definitely no skills possessed to do such things and about as far down my list of priorities as taking a hammer to my handsome face.

    In fact I want to have a good time and fun while suffering in this flesh body and people are fucking boring. Not you guys, the others out there. Fucking boring! Just wanted to spice things up and thought this would be fun. Besides I'd hope most people would know enough to turn off that function.

    ^That.

    I was thinking on the way home, you could keep a little piece of paper (with GIM on it) in your pocket and if you come across an interesting scene or object snap a pic with the paper. It's supposed to be fun, no Smithsonian level material expected. Remember its the judges that we want to impress.

    Sure, he's here fixing a wall that had a leak in it for a few YEARS. The wall mounted toilets were putting too much strain on the mold in the wall, they were starting to sag, so I called Ben Franklin! Here's a close-up of my Chinese landfill coins, magnetic they are.
