Take a good look at that little gator, his size vs the dog. Kinda like about a 6-7 ft gator to a small human...and their are many thousands of those in FL.

Think about that when strolling along the lakeside somewhere.

Oh, and happy Thanksgiving.

NFB, freaking salty crocs have NOTHING in common with alligators. They are serious man eaters.

How do we block those stupid cheerleaders?

It's my sig. It's only 42 kB. They are bringing cheers to everyone during this worldwide difficult trying times. Unless you are still on a telephony handshake modem internet and have a computer from the 90s, it wouldnt slow the page loading.

Sorry, it's just childish as heck looking. If we had someone viewing with epilepsy it could trigger a life threatening seizure.

We all know you wouldn't want that to happen...would you?

Have fun, and keep on cheering! rolleyes

Wow, just saw this.

"Across the top of his head, the gator measured 16 inches wide. He weighed in at 1,008 pounds and measured over 13 feet long.

“He’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen,” said Capps. It took the pair some 3½ hours to move the animal the 100 feet to the jon boat.

While certainly much larger than the average gator, Capps’ now-defeated enemy isn’t quite record-breaking. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the state record for length is 14 feet, 3.5 inches, weighing 1,043 pounds."

Yup, I had to do the same thing. I'm so glad SimHQ had that option.

I have a friend who tried it once and he said it tasted similar to veal.

I had a really good alligator Po-boy in New Orleans several years ago. I can't really remember how I would describe the taste. It was deep fried and pretty much anything tastes good deep fried.

Of if you don't want to turn off all sigs and you use AdBlock right click on the happy little girls and "block this ad"

Perfect.

Thanks man. Still is a shame we have to use adblock to make the site we've known and loved for decades useable.

edit: well almost perfect, it blocks Cyber's SimHQ logo in his sig too.

Ok you blocked the "server" (don't know if that's the correct term but follow me here!)

First, can you figure out how to undo that? Not sure if I can help do that, but if you can then do this:

Right click on the cheerleaders and click "adblock" and "block this ad"

When the pop up comes up click "looks good" and in the next pop up uncheck the top two and then check the bottom one (I'm using Cyberkuts image in my example, just ignore that file name)
That way you are blocking ONLY that one image. :

Ok, perfect now, thanks F4U. These freakin ads and "hip" sigs suck. I am pretty sure they were banned YEARS ago here, sigs that is, ads were only for ubisoft fanbois. I recently deleted all my sig stuff that I thought might trigger/PO people...it was a holiday thing, now we have to jump through hoops so some spamming noob can litter our occasionally; and semi-intellectually gifted attempts at making a point. What was the point again?

Thank you F4UDash4 for that info and thank you Nixer for inquiring. Those gifs have been really irritating me among other things. I use add blocker but I had no idea you could right click on an image and then block it like that.

I'm glad the man was able to rescue his pup and that the gator wasn't bigger than it was but still dangerous. That dog is apart of the man's household so I'm thankful he took action was able to save his pup.

I remember having some alligator tail once and if I recall......it tasted like chicken. smile

I've had some sausage made of alligator. Whatever spices it's made with seems to mask whatever plain gator might taste like.
