It's for old timers like us to shoot the breeze
It's become more mellow and certainly much quieter, yes. But so what?

As for how long this place will stay up? Don't know. Someone is paying for the server's electricity bill and we just hope they don't notice Given the small amount of traffic the forum receives these days, I don't think it is a lot, though.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

We exist to feed ideas to subego's movie studio. Once it has a few hits, we'll all get residuals, and can live the Hollywood lifestyle.

I am grateful for all the memories from this place.

I apologize for being an abrasive cunt. It's weird it's been two decades and this place still looks the same. I wonder what happened to a lot of personalities here. I'm certain Zimphire is in jail for kiddy porn, and Railroader is an angry boomer flying a trump flag, and I'm still glad Wlonh is dead. Who the fuck calls the secret service over internet shit talk from some under 20 dipshit? Fuck that guy. If I knew where his grave was I'd go drop a deuce on it to bookend that memory in life.

I'm just glad we lasted longer then News Factor Network. Remember all that buy out drama? Pepperidge Farms remembers.

I thought this place would be a Starbucks by now. How cool that you're still here.

Similarly, if after 6 months no WMD are found, people who supported the war should say the same thing -- and move to impeach Mr. Bush." - moki, 04/16/03
