    2012 was a special year with a lot of memorable events, both good and bad. It was a year of landmarks - the 50th anniversary of James Bond, the 100th year of the a Titanic, the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. It was a year of farewells, when many famous celebrities and American legends died: Whitney Houston, Neil Armstrong, Donna Summer, Dick Clark. It was a great year in the world of motion pictures, with great movies such as The Hunger Games, The Avengers, The Hobbit. It was the year of the Summer Olympic Games in London, when Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian of all time. It was a year of devastation and tragedy - Hurricane Sandy, the mass shootings in Colorado, Oregon, and Connecticut.

    Wishing everyone a healthy, safe, and happy New Year!

    Happy New Year, TrekBBS peeps. :bolian:

    I hope 2013 turns out to be ironically lucky for everyone. It almost can't help but be better than 2012.

    Thanks, and to you all a happy New Calendar Day!

    ^[@RJD] But 2012 was a grand year (just see my av) and I -for one- can't wait to see what 2013 has to bring :)

    ^^ Yes, I agree, many wonderful things happened as well. It's best to focus on those.

    ^Exactly... people die every year... politicians win or loose something or other every year, sports-people do something that's only been done a fraction of a second slower in the entirety of history every year, Tech-companies make things that are smaller/'smarter' than they did the season before (twice) every year -and what's a year, these days, if it hasn't got an apocalypse(-'scare') or two to its name?

    Seeing the Dragon spacecraft docking to the ISS is a REAL first! Never before has anything even slightly alike been done! And finding the Higgs boson... If I could mention only ONE important thing from 2012 it would be that.

    To all have a Happy and Prosperous New Year to all here in BBS.

    I'm still tying to warm up from my first Polar Bear swim ever at Wiffin Spit Park., it was not that bright out but it didn't rain.

    Started a new job today as the maintenance guy at a hotel. It feels good to have a job again where I'm active and working with tools. I kind of really hated doing office work. Also my boss is a really nice guy and only very mildly annoying, easily tolerable. I also have a lot more autonomy than I'm used to which I'm going to enjoy.

    Also, at the party I was at New Years Eve I met a girl I like a lot. That happens pretty often, but she also likes me a lot, which doesn't happen as often. We stayed up talking for hours after everyone else when to bed, then we went to bed. I fell asleep with her in my arms, and I'm not disappointed that we kept our clothes on the whole time; it was a good enough experience as it was, and that never happens.

    So, yeah, 2013 is awesome so far. Let's see how the other 363 days go.

    LOL I couldn't agree more :)
    For me it started with a 2 day telephone blackout at my office. 2 days of uninterrupted work in peace and quiet. Pure bliss!
    On the other hand it's a rainy year so far and when it rains my internet connection at home breaks down. Apparently there's water getting to the lines at some point but my ISP is unable to pinpoint the damage. I'm not sure if I can join Terranchat tonight. Give the others a hug from me, please, if I don't turn up :)
