    My Friend: You know, maybe the reason we lose our teeth when we get old is so that we'll have to change our diet to less complex things.

    Me: I'll concede that, if you'll also grant that maybe the reason we get senile or suffer Alzheimer's is so we don't have to remember all the friends we've lost or terrible things we've done & witnessed

    Them: ........

    Me: Or, you know, maybe the warrantee's just up & shit starts breaking down.

    Oddly one of my TVs was super reliable then almost a day out of that 12 month period it started to glitch and pixelate. Eventually it fell over completely dead.

    The stars of the Thunderbolts film should have been a Chitauri, an Extremis Soldier, a Dark Elf, an Ultron bot, a Hammer Drone and an Outrider.

    New Hampshire and Maine share a common border. That's about as near as you can get.

    I was thinking of where President Bartlet hails from and for some reason I pictured him out on the edge of the USA.
    Also, the Oval Office isn't in the White House. I only realised that in the last year! It's in the (duh) West Wing. I figured like Toby and Josh's offices were in the West Wing but the President and Leo were right in the middle of the White House.

    Maine was once strangely "connected" to a place called Massechushits look-it-up. ;)

    ANOTHER really cool necro-thread someone resurrected gets closed down before I can post on it.

    And NO, I'm not going to start a new thread because I've already watched nearly every thread I've started go drifting slowly down into oblivion with a single digit number of replies. My self-esteem doesn't need any more hits.

    Wouldn't an old thread being revived be better than creating a second or third or fourth thread on the same topic?

    "Better" is subjective, but starting a new thread is the correct course of action for this situation here at TrekBBS.

    I don't entirely agree with the board's "necro thread" policy either, but those are the rules. If I don't like the rules, I can always take my toys and go play in some other kid's sandbox.

    Famous Five vs Secret Seven. Who Wins?
    Bear in mind one of the Five is a dog. But bear in mind the Secret Seven also has a dog, but is not an official member.

    The Adventure kids, because they've got Kiki the endlessly snarking parrot.

    What would the thread have been about? Maybe we can talk about it here.

    So Windows helpfully notified me that Windows 11 is ready for my PC.

    Sorry, Windows 11, but I am not ready for you!

    Northern Exposure wiki bio on character Mike Monroe: "He is bubbly." That's some great work. Could at least include he was played by Anthony Edwards. "Trivia: Anthony Edwards would later play another doctor on some other show."

    My train just passed through Wilmington, DE.

    Fortunately my luggage didn’t transmaterialize into a pile of unsolicited credit card offers. :lol:
