I don't have a particular problem with the discussion. It's just that killing the Thread™ requires people to stop posting in this thread.

Good. Why don't you stop posting, then?

Don't answer that. Just stop posting. There's a good group of girls/boys/transgender species...

I don't think we should kill this thread.


Killing is wrong.

I'll kill you if you don't let me kill this Thread™. Make your choice, Looney One!

:EDIT: Actually, that's more than a tad harsh (and untrue). Maybe just torture with some painful, blunt instrument, then. Either way, the choice is between suffering and letting me win.

Remember, kids: letting me win is fun for everyone!

We can't stop yet. We haven't reached post 10,000.

Isn't there a recurring urban myth about implants reacting to remote controls so the implant gets all exctitable when the neighbout changes the channel or opens his garage door?

I think when we get to 10,000 then the world will end.

You're wrong. Possibly.

I share Natasha's opinion of phones. Phones are for phoning, not for anything else. And I have a feeling that there's quite a lot of people like that other girl out there.

I concur. At a pinch I use mine to make texts (though I'm hopelessly inept at typing the damn things), but I prefer to use phones for what they were originally intended: making telephone calls.

I've never written an SMS in my life, partly because I hate it if people try to tell me what to do when they don't have a right to tell me anything (if they are nice, or have a right to tell me what to do, that's alright). I hate it to be manipulated (that's why it usually hits a nerve when any character in any game [often NWN] is manipulating my character. They should be glad I am unable to play evil characters, or they'd be at the receiving end of my wrath. I do usually play Chaotic Good though, so they're not entirely safe. Except in Aielund, where I ended up as Neutral Good after being too loyal to the country - Then again, I could use a higher tendency towards Chaotic in Aielund, because if I become Lawful I won't be able to rise up any more levels as a bard. So beware the Loony if you're going to cross or manipulate her!), it's the one thing that really makes me furious. And then there along comes a phone - a bloody *THING* - and tries to tell me what word it is I am writing! It would be only half as bad if it suggested the right word, but *NO* it suggests something completely wrong! EVIL!!!


On a side note, I am reading "The History of the English Language" right now, which starts as follows:

Quote:
In the beginning there was an island off the coast of Europe. It had no name, for the natives had no language, only a collection of grunts and gestures that roughly translated to "Hey!", "Gimme!", and "Pardon me, but would you happen to have any woad?"

What really irritates me is when people send me an SMS that needs replying to, which forces me to write them an SMS. I have email if I want to send messages that consist of text, and otherwise it would almost certainly be far easier to call. Particularly as, given how little I actually say in any given text message, I could almost certainly save money by delivering brief snippets of the dolcet tones of my voice instead...

*plots to write Jaz an annoying text*
