I avoid using Media Player if I can. I usually use WinAmp, anyway.


Also, why didn't the forum display that I was viewing the thread? I've been doing so for the past few hours. Did it turn me invisible again? I'm constantly logged in! Does it not display me online when I'm in another tab, maybe?

I worry for you Jaz, excessive exposure to the Thread may be harmful to your mental health.

Just look at poor Robsie, the verbal centre of his brain has been so degraded, all he can say are single words which he just repeats over and over in perpetuity.

I still have my awesome mental prowess, fortunately. I seem to be developing a bad case of narcissism, though. Of course, this condition is fitting my powerful mental faculties.

Dang.

My Sausage-Eating Psycho Monkey

marginally loses to your

Crumpet-Eating Super Monkey.


On the plus side my Giant Blob that has a Swirly Hypnotic Gaze and Prehensile Eyes, fears the Military, is Extremely Hydrophobic, and Tunnels Underground

beats the crap out of your

Tiny Ant that drinks Human Blood, eats Nuclear Waste, breathes Poisonous Gas, and has a Metal Jaw and Webbed Feet

You're just jealous because
my Robot that walks on Four Spindly Legs, is fitted with an Electron Ram, a Tesla Coil and Twin Airbags, runs on a Single Watch Battery, and is Entirely Automated

beats

your Robot that seeks Kittens, is fitted with a Death Ray and a Whirling Chain, Hops Around on Single Leg, and runs on a Car Battery
.

And what do you mean "has gone" anyway?

Ooh, I like the Death Ray and Whirling Chain.

And don't worry. You're one of the saner persons I know.

That's strange. I had you down as a person for whom the "seeks Kittens" feature would have more attraction.

Sanity is such a flexible word, given how much it seems to apply to societal norms so much of the time. I think I fail on that judgement. (which is fine by me)

Maybe you should change your avatar. You're becoming more and more like Monk, even more so than you were so.

I'm worried about you, Robsie.

Aww, that's so sweet of you! But don't worry. It is true, had I been cursed with mental health, it would have been damaged by now. But since I was instead blessed with purest insanity, you can relax, and don't have to worry about me being exposed to The Thread.


Oh, and I'd like to point out that I had not yet read that post of yours before I wrote the "I'm worried about you, Robsie.". I swear I didn't read your post before that. My eyes nearly popped out when I saw that. Wicked coincidence, Dude!

I think it was partly my fault that he uses it, because I told him about "Monk", because I thought that he would like it. He watched it (after much struggle to get his hands on some DVDs, because apparently "Monk" is shown in the early morning, very late night in the UK. ), and as I recall, he did like it.

You have to have been active within the last half hour (I think that's the time) to be displayed on the "Who's Online" page.

Actually, it's shown on a Saturday afternoon, but it wasn't advertised at all, and that's a graveyard slot since nobody watches television then.

All of which is rather odd, given how good the programme is.

Perhaps if he has that avatar long enough, he'll start to look like it, much like dogs and dog owners.

OK kids.
I'll be leaving you home alone for the weekend. Since Paul's still away on his Texas relocation business I'll leave uncle Moogie in charge of everything. Have fun. And don't do anything I would do.

Some rules:
No weddings until I come back.
No picking on each other.
Don't play with fire, you know how I hate to do laundry.
