    Decided to see what was up rather than trudge upstairs to the futon.

    Friday is usually a work-at-home day, but all classes are cancelled today on campus because this weekend is the uni festival.

    It's not a bad life.... :lol:

    Kinda sorta. ;)

    Hey, 'Rider, it looks like he's been doing his edit thang again:


    ¡Y tú madre también! Come mierda. And sock puppet. Batty Boy.

    ¿Qué tú quieres? ¿Jugar? Yo juego.

    Ps I can bless you and Frig you up at the same time!

    I was taught by the best! Opus Dei

    My mentor:

    Josemaría Escrivá, a saint. It does not mean that we turn the other cheek all the time; we do what Jesus gives us strengh to do or not to do. It is so cool. I Frig you up; it is irressistible temptation. I let you go; I'm a good boy. Win, win. Still want to play? I'll like to laugh at you!
    Next stop is the "twilight zone"

    The OP of the thread, by arnie, is fairly stupid in its way as well. Looks like he's posting his fanfic wherever he wants, now.

    Actually, to be completely honest, I've always thought that entire "Dune Cookbook" forum to be pretty stupid and pointless. :roll:

    Same here. I could see it being maybe one thread in an off-topic forum, but to devote an entire top-level category to an effing Dune Cookbook? That's just absurd on a number of levels.

    That blew my mind too. It suggested to me how seriously they take all of this.

    Wow. He's actually arguing that the hacks aren't selling crap off Frank Herbert's work.

    That is so far gone, words can't describe it...

    he (fantomas) logged off without editing it. I think "Eat Me" on a "civilized" board is probably justifiable for deletion - which is why I don't post on "civilized" boards anymore.....but really, and I've wondered about this for a long while now, why hasn't Merritt banned Nekhrun ? He walks right up the edge of Merritt's Rules, and sometimes over - I've seen his posts deleted, but I've seen others (innocents, too, mind you) banned for less. Not trying to stir up trouble, I'm just wondering and still trying to figger out what's rattling around in Merritt's head .....




    edit - ^^^ that's beautiful, GP.
    double edit - I'm not sure a chat function would solve the topic de-railment problem .......

    Personally, I'd rather have off topic posts than none at all.

    IMO, a chat room would take away from what people would normally post.

    I'm still considering it though.

    I think that when multiple people are logged in here at once it pretty much turns into a chat room anyways. I don't see what would be gained.

    Oh, there's a method to his laziness. He's explained it to me :roll:

    See, on Facebook, one is able to login and gain access to all one's friends with a single click. Further, Facebook's interface encourages very brief correspondence. Thus, my friend says it's easy to remain in touch with everyone via one point of contact and he says he can write shorter (hence, more useless) messages to his friends. This saves him much more time and thus allows him to keep in more frequent contact with the rest of us.

    Of course, he fails elaborate upon the ancillary benefit of this Facebook system, which I know applies directly to him. You see, this particular friend of mine has a very unique and incredibly annoying personality quirk: he has, what I have coined, a "social quota." Once he reaches his social quota for a given time period (let's say a week), he wants no more social interaction for that time period. Technology, it seems, has finally caught up with my friend and thus Facebook is a method by which he can control his social exposure on his terms. :x

    And before you ask, don't ask. He really is a great guy, but we've just all come to accept him the way he is. His wife is a saint. :P

    Well, I've made her laugh so hard on two different occasions that she's had various things snorted out her nose in a most embarrassing fashion. That's pretty damned magical, but I'm not familiar with them enough to know if it's also Jewish :)

    I used the Facebook a little recently, in regards to an upcoming
    reunion, and I'd say your friend has a good point, GP. It is a one-stop,
    quick interaction site. Makes sense to me.

    I've no real objection to Facebook, I just know my friend too well. He's using Facebook as a crutch. But I suppose after 9 years, there's no influencing him.

    Friends. They're the worst. After Torontonians...and Canadians. :P
