You can talk about anything here. I thought it was a good idea since I had a part in derailing some of the threads earlier. I'm sorry if there's already a thread for this, but I couldn't find it. If the mods know the location of such a thread I'd be happy to be redirected.

SO! Let me start off.

I am currently in Gatlinburg mooching internet from somewhere around the chalet we're in. It's the shitiest, most tenuous internet connection I've ever mooched and randomly goes in an out. It's slow and I am unable to check my e-mail, but I HAVE a connection and that's a miracle in itself. So fortunately I can get on the forum, which is good because as entertaining as Downtown is, the chalet itself is very boring. So for the love of Moore's Almighty Beard entertain me!

Also, side note, my little brother is the biggest asshole on the planet.

This thread is elegant in its simplicity and I love the idea, but you'll never stop me from derailing threads.

Anyway, right now I'm in the middle of New York bored at home. Luckily, I have my pal the internet to keep me entertained.

Yeah, how ever could she complete with you charm?

Quick fact: Magenta was renamed Famous by Crayola in 2008.

Theory: Done so as a nod to Veidt when they learned of the Watchmen movie? Must investigate further.

I've got charm in spades compared to her.

When I first read that, I thought you meant that they changed the name to Famous Magenta or something. I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake.

There. That song should entertain you for at least three minutes and twelve seconds.

I want to sell my current video camera, and buy a video DSLR. But I'm not completely convinced yet.

Also, I met a girl on chatroulette (lol), and we got along and stuff. We chatted 4 or five times the following week. The last time we talked, some weird stuff happened (This was on Yahoo Messenger). First, all of a sudden her cam stopped broadcasting. She was still logged on, so I asked her if her cam screwed up. She didn't answer, so I asked if she was still there. 2 or 3 minutes went by, and she disconnected.

I figured her comp had crapped out, so I logged off as well. Now, normally she's logged onto myspace through her phone, so she'll appear online most of the night, even while she's at work.

The next day, I get on myspace and see she hasn't been on. So I send her a message and leave it at that. It's now been a week and she hasn't been on yahoo, hasn't logged onto myspace, etc. Like I said, she's usually on at least though her phone. Because I'm an idiot, I gave her my own number, but forgot to ask for hers.

Anyway, I'm getting a little worried. The whole thing was just really strange. The last image that came through was her looking over to her right.

So at this point I'm worried, and of course I'm going through like a million scenarios in my head. Maybe she has a boyfriend, and he walked in while she was chatting. He got upset and made her log off. If that were the case, though, why hasn't she even logged onto myspace for a week? Maybe she went out of town. But did she not take her phone or anything? And of course, worst one, maybe she has a boyfriend, he got jealous, did unspeakable things, and now she's missing.

That's probably not the case, but still. The whole thing seems a bit fishy.

Jesus, Deigo. :(

well it might just be that her internet is down and that's why she can't log on.

Have you tried going through your call records and finding her number? You can ask your provider for it I'm sure.

And if you're really worried you can go to the local police station and just give them a report....I don't know if they'll actually do anything, but it will at least make you feel better.

Also, if she gets on myspace through her phone I'm wondering if there's a code or a series of number or something that contains her number. Idk, I don't use myspace.

She's probably alright, Diego. I wouldn't discount her having a boyfriend, though. I wish I could reassure you further, but I can't. :/

And on to lighter things... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wupToqz1e2g

I like that video. There's no bad time for Carl Sagan.

Well she never called me or texted me, that's the problem. Also, she's in Florida while I'm in Colorado, so I can't really do much.
I'm guessing she's alright too, at least I hope so. If she has a boyfriend, I don't care, we're just friends.

It could be a number of reasons that are far simpler than what I'm making of it. Still, it's weird.

I've seen I, II, and III, and watched IV, thought I didn't much pay attention. Star Wars never really caught my attention...Idk why. I like Star Trek. I'm in the middle of watching the second season of TOS. :)

I'm the opposite. I've seen some Star Trek, but I'm much more into Star Wars.

I felt the need to ask that question because someone else on the forum never saw the original trilogy. And apparently I was justified because you haven't seen the last two.

The joke is that it's supposed to be a General (as in military) talking to his troops.

Don't worry, it's not that funny.

:shock:
:o

Just got it! DAMMIT! I am slow today.....just like my internet.

Also, Ziller what's with the cello comment in your signature? I've been dying to know.

(My mind has been saying "Ask goddammit!" But then my brain is like "Hush child," and slowly pushes the comment away....and then it forgets.....And please don't ask about this little monologue cause I have no idea.)

Thanks for asking. It's from a movie called Rocket Science. It's really good. You should check it out.
