The best piece of literature known to man, Dr. Brinner has it all. All forms of comedy tastefully blended with a universe or two of philosophies, the classic heroic arc repeated seventy-six times over, characters from across histories known and undiscovered, space ghosts and earth dinosaurs, pop culture references, violence, tragedy, romance, and the ethereal world of the human mind: Dr. Brinner, Ghost Psychiatrist. This thirty-thousand page epic does not look to be wrapping up any time soon (apart from the bimonthly chapter-closings). Some even say that it's still in a warmup phase.
So, if you haven't read it, check it out. If you have, come discuss!
We all love and enjoy food, and we like to talk about it. However, some of us have strong opinions about food, and others of us don't want to debate about food all day long. I propose a Food Subforum, where those of us who like to discuss food can talk to our heart's contents. Sure, it'll make the Off-Topic Discussions forum less popular, but at least we won't have food discussion all over the place!
signd, a concerned citizen
Since we have Music and Movies forums . . .
After a lifetime of study, I have determined that there are three Universal Condiments:
I. Peanut butter*
*None of the creamy s@%$
There is a fabled Fourth Condiment, but I have heard . . . only tales. It is said to be found in the mysterious nation of Italy. Its name is powerful, and I will only reveal it to those who share my righteous search.
Today tumblr* exploded with reblogs concerning Joseph Kony, his Lord's Resistance Front, and an organisation known as Invisible Children. Most of them featured a video compiled by members of Invisible Children.
When I watched the video, I tried to suppress my scepticism. A national movement is based in optimism, not pessimism. I boosted the message on all the hella platforms I'm linked the f$@@ into.
I'm quite surprised there aren't any threads about this yet.
*and some other things I don't care about
The first page, I think. When I was your age, to get there you had to go through the archives by clicking through the months.
(Look at the first comic. Now look at the latest comic. Now look at the first comic again.)
Anyway, s+%@ getting sad drove me to start this thread. What do you all think?
Another attack on the bottom line of an industry already deformed by overregulation and big farm expansion, or a necessary change to protect young workers?
My dad read this article, and he could name someone he knew who had died (while doing something prohibited under this law) for each of the activities listed. Most of what I know about farm life comes from his 1960s-1980s-era experience. Farm work is dangerous, but this law could drive the last small family farms out of business.
Every 3.5 days in the US a kid dies while on an agricultural work site. I didn't know we even had that many kids.
April is the cruellest month. Multiply by three and: Spring is the cruller month TIMES THREE>
In winter: "when i look around all i see is the miles of unharnessed snowmen im just too damn cool to build"
Summer is like, mosquitoes and s@%$? F%@* that.
Fall is pretty cool, you guys. All those muted colours and that biting cold and the leaves off the trees. Decay everywhere. F!~&in geese flying overhead. Yard birds start coming out. There's a few flowers left, but they're rotting. The trees are raining. THE TREES ARE RAINING>
(ignoring the [web]comic medium's stranglehold on meta stuff - ignoring it completely . . .)
(assuming it is okay to post threads about subforums in the subforums they are about . . .)
Why is this forum so dead? Are comics really that boring? Or is it just that no one keeps a tab or even a bookmark open, and just clicks on the Recent Threads?
(Also I just now noticed the "What's on your must-read list lately?" prompt at the top - spiffy!)
This language has little standardisation (f~!~ing grammar! how does it work!). It has become the trade language of Europe and most industrialised countries encourage its practice. Every subculture has its own obscure phrases, definitions, and even grammar and words themselves.* Its current rate of evolution is insane.**
Of course, English is f$$$ing up the integrity of all other languages. If languages can be said to evolve, English is the protobacterium in the primordial petri dish that "decided" not to share its genes and only to take genes from others, thus becoming the only ancestor of all life. Or kudzu.
*Perhaps the modern era will be seen by historians as the Cambrian explosion of sublanguages? Except the explosion had a lot of diversity in root lineages but whatever.
Would you like to play a game?
You all use Wikipedia and then pretend that you had the information in your head all along. Don't try to fool me. So, does Jimmy Wales have a punchable face or what? Should I steal his "beard" to feed my unibrow? What is the best way to paraphrase Wikipedia? Did you know that Jimmy Wales is basically a talentless hack who stole the glory from real programmers? Do you actually know someone who obsessively edits Wikipedia? Was Al Gore the true founder of Wikipedia?
So I'm at the public library right now. There's a huge list of Nic Cage movies on Wikipedia, but I don't know about any of them (except Con Air, which is not at this or any affiliated library). I am looking for recommendations.
Oh, and it's not that I have a disregard for the system of separate forums. IGTS JUST THAT I DONT CARE>*
*okay this basically means you can go ahead and move this thread. I'm not even sure if there is a Movies forum. I guess I should get on that. Later, when I have more time.
LIFE IS HELL.
Life is a song you don't get to rehearse, and every verse can make it that much worse.
You're born. Guess what! You can't talk. You're a complete idiot. You slowly grow intelligence, strength, and beauty, which peaks around your mid-20s. Odds are you will live for a few more decades, wherein your body and mind will start to fall apart. You might get Alzheimer's. Someone you know will probably get it. People around you are dropping like flies. When you finally give in, it's a relief.
You can never know everything. You will fail at a lot of things.
Oh, and eventually the universe will either retract into a supermassive black hole, or (more likely) it will expand infinitely.
When do y'all go to sleep? Sitting in the Pacific time zone, the OTD is silent by about 12:00 pm and this goblin is bored. What do you do at night? Do you eat or drink? How do you get to sleep?
This thread is for when it's past 7:00 pm in your time zone. But if you want, you can post when it's broad daylight.
I guess I should warn AZ and his kobold-sympathising ilk: Goblins are tougher.
