Was it the one with the pair of dungarees? That was a good cover.
Yeah thats the one.... wow...
how long will fake user names last this time?
Up until last week, we had five Presidents alive, which is quite a lot considering that a President's term used to be seven years and Francois Mitterrand was elected twice and served for fourteen years, Jacques Chirac served twelve years. Now we're down to four, Valéry Giscard being the oldest. He's 93!
until THIS: https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/halloween-name-change-thread.301383/ stuff is over...
It's a lot of fun.
lol... i should have left him in the dark.... DANG IT!!
i kinda knew there's a thread about it, but i was way too lazy to search for it
The first rule of Passive Aggressive Club:
....you know what? Just never mind. Forget it.
I thought about dressing up as Lord Garth for Halloween. From "Whom Gods Destroy". But his costume is fancier than I realized. I'm still going to do it at some point. Halloween or not. Once I have the money to put into doing it justice.
That is fine, as you put it and if you can stand it, but what if...you are the "president"--or an ordinary citizen of a group of interstellar star-ships seeking to flee the incoming fire of Silons, and you do not know who are the clones? Then what? The renewal of the Dark Ages?
pitch forks and torches?
that'd propably be the first instinctive reaction. Humans, like small dogs, tend to follow the principle "before you can bite me, I better bite you". Aggression is often an advantage, in evolutionary terms. Nevertheless, ethically it is questionable.
Personally, I'd evade the fire first and deal with the clone problem later, in a non-violent way.
@antichristhill good advice but how do you start? I had a confrontation with a completely moronic colleague on Tuesday morning and still can't stop feeling angry. Whenever I stop being busy, the memory sneaks back. And the more often I remember something, the better does it get anchored in the long-term-memory.
those stitches are history
Do not challenge Death to a pillow fight, unless you are prepared to face the reaper cushions.
I love that feeling when you almost drop something, but somehow manage to catch it in a moment of freakish agility.
I am very peculiar about my food. For example, I buy my dairy products at a farm not far from my house. It's a relatively small farm.
How convenient for...you. And to think that I live in the "so-called" country. Is it labeled organic? And if so, watch out, there are plenty of b.s. artists out there. I "milked" cows when I was a kid, and got kicked on occasion for my trouble.
Bossie and Elsie
could be rather temperamental unless you "washed" their teats and attached the milking machine gently and with the utmost care. Even then sometimes...
If you’re going to say “excuse me” to somebody (for whatever reason) then fucking well SAY IT. Out loud. Don’t whisper.
It’s more rude to whisper “excuse me” than to not say it at all.
The person who invented popcorn must have been surprised.
Sometimes when people say "excuse me" out loud it can be interpreted as rude, especially if they're by that telling people to get out of their way.
Separate names with a comma.
