    I sent a strongly worded smoke signal but it was a bit windy so they probably couldn't make it out.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ Lights On

    What next? They'll be drive-by shootin's and it'll be like boys in the hood. And they'll be prostitutes on street corners, and the pimps will be using crack to keep the hoors under control.

    I went outside and actually did physical work. My hands were all covered in clay and my wellies were wet so my socks got drenched. :( On the plus side, it was very productive. :D

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,098 ✭✭✭ MonkeyTennis

    I fixed it by licking the screen.

    Go me!

    They had to recharge the offensive detector.

    During those 2.5 hours 10 uncomfortable facts got through.

    Stop pretending you have a life outside boards! :p The rest of us were chewing our finger nails at the thought of real world engagement! I stepped outside my front door today and broke in to a cold sweat. People were talking to me and I didn't know what to do so I ran away.

    I'm back in my pit now safe and warm with my beloved boards.

    Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the f5 button, let the refreshers come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message Boards Is Dead,
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    Can't believe people were getting on with their lives as if nothing was wrong!

    I'm on a desktop browser (soooo 2010!) but also using the old vbulletin version of boards, I wonder is that helping?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,238 ✭✭✭✭ Diabhal Beag

    Went to read the Ireland section of reddit. Nearly ended it all tbh.
