A new greeting at the Corner Pub, introduced by Jerry L. Lewis (not to be confused with Jerry Lee Lewis), is "Shoyurite!" (pronounced briskly as "Show-you-right!) Loosely
translated, it means: "Sure, you're right!" (Some fine nuances in
meaning are lost in the translation, as is the case with words like "Aloha.")
The word is also used as a tactful response. When a regular customer states something, even if it's obviously BS, other regulars politely respond with an enthusiastic "Shoyurite!"
The objective of pub discussions is to be sociable, not to resolve world problems, "edjacate," or convert another to one's way of thinking. So, we just say "Shoyurite!" whether we agree or not.
Posers are easily detected by incorrect pronounciation or inflection, as proper use requires some audio training by Jerry (the master) and more than a little repetitive practice.
Those who excel at the Dumpster Dash know the course thoroughly and master every minute aspect of the race. Through the use of TECHNIQUE TIPS, we can share this growing body of very specific expertise with aspiring Dumpster Dashers.
When approaching the dumpster running downhill, one must adjust one's speed as one approaches the dumpster to allow for JUST a touch and a quick turnaround, followed by a rapid acceleration on the flatest part of the course.
This video illustrates how NOT to do it. (Recommend you turn the sound down if at work.)
(You only need to watch the first 10 seconds. The rest is just multiple replays, put to music.)
It's become painfully obvious to anyone who reads this blog that some of the Corner Pub regulars have debilitating procrastination issues.
We have no way of knowing what kind of problems this is causing these people in the rest of their lives, and frankly it's none of our business; but we do know it's inconveniencing the rest of us in terms of the Dumpster Dash.
There's lots of help available on the web. This page is just an example.
Hopefully, an "intervention" will not be necessary.
