    I know what you mean John, constant monitoring and then bragging about what they are getting; they have almost become like fishermans tales. I hear them all the time at meets :ROFLMAO: Normally something like

    " I was on a site down south, it was 11pm and I was still putting 8 amps in"

    " I got up last night for a pee, noticed it was a full moon, checked my meter and i was putting in 1,8 amps .. honest"

    " Aye, we were at a firework display last November that was so good by the time the fireworks finished , we were fully charged"

    :ROFLMAO:
