back40 is the 40 unused acres in the back of the Internet where we gather to hang out. Like a sort of outdoor pub, stories and opinions about anything and everything are exchanged, whether meaningful or meaningless: news, current events, politics, religion, sports, that jerk at work, or any other random topic, the only exceptions being obscene language or content. Sacred cows might get skewered, sometimes in an irreverent manner. So let’s relax, lighten-up a bit, not take ourselves too seriously, and have some fun! I just cleared an area with the bush-hog and gathered plenty of firewood, so pull up a folding chair and let’s shoot some bull while we poke sticks in the glowing embers. I’m almost empty – hit me with another cold one.
