Nam - The least interesting man on the forum
« on: June 18, 2012, 07:57:59 PM »
He once did a dryer load without a fabric softener sheet
Part of his computer is bound for the Smithsonian; the world's bravest keyboard
He once trolled you - but you never even knew it
His weed eater uses an oil to gas ratio exceeding manufacturer's recomendations
He ignores you but still responds to your posts

He is - the least interesting man on the forum

Hey - are you trying to provoke a hostile emotional response from me? That's expressly against the rules Mr. Blackwell.

You do realise that HAL is no longer admin, we could just gang up on him and virtually beat the crap out of him?  :P He has lost his godlike powers, it just makes it so much easier to pick on him.

Nam has a large collection of potato chips that look like turtles. It is worth nothing.
You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

Pick on me - pick on me! The problem around here is we don't have enough fun threads!

^ To be fair making fun of other members isn't "fun".  You could make some non inflammatory fun threads. It's my experience that making such threads is frowned upon and not so popular on forums of this nature. But if you give it a try I will try to respond.

We did it all the time on WWGHA v1.0 (the old WWGHA). I'm trying to get that old sense of community back here. It's just not the same and I aim to change that.

I once tried a fun, anti-inflammatory thread.

I called it "Ibuprofen"

Only in my mind. It's not my goal to get banned and I no longer have an Admin pal to back me up when I goof.  ;)

Well yea and as I recall when WWGHA v2.0 came out there wasn't even a relaxation section. How long did that last? I'm sure it permanently changed the atmosphere here. Plus WWGHA v1.0 had more drama and flame wars. Wouldn't threads like this start more of the not so desirable actions that caused the demise of 1.0?

Hey, now, I could be wrong. If you're so inclined and the new Admin team allows it prove me wrong. I will of course admit it if you end up being right. But I can't see myself enjoying this type of humor. It may be funny one day, but if I participate I run the risk of similar threads being made about myself. Meh, you've seen me offended, I'm sure you can see why I think this is a bad idea.

Naw. They just have to get used to this type of humor. Right now they aren't accustomed to it so they don't understand (yet).

It's wholesome entertainment! Trust me!

Anyway -maybe I'll start a new forum in a year or so. You can help me. All we need is a concept to draw members and a domain name. I'll pay for it - it doesn't cost a lot to host one.

I was going to say he had a man-crush, but I realised I had it backward.

Ok, you get that in writing and we can talk.

Naw. They just have to get used to this type of humor. Right now they aren't accustomed to it so they don't understand (yet).

Why do I get the feeling that you are about to school them?

It's wholesome entertainment! Trust me!

I don't doubt it, I've contemplated it, as my sense of humor is much different IRL. But I don't think it translates as well online. Or perhaps I've not fine tuned it yet since I'm typically rather conservative.

Anyway -maybe I'll start a new forum in a year or so. You can help me. All we need is a concept to draw members and a domain name. I'll pay for it - it doesn't cost a lot to host one.

You know I would. I need to learn how to do the technical stuff. I'd love a website & forum of my own but alas my knowledge base doesn't allow for me to do it independently. I still remember my fav website name from our last discussion, pretty sure no one else liked it though!

Nam could introduce you to the finer side of stapler sadomasochism.

Crap...this means I have to back myself up with something? Erm...I guess as Nam hasn't given his comeback, I'll do it for him:



Too far?  ;D

Still, I think it makes an epic way to insult somebody, I've just never found anybody I had heart to use it on and mean it. Maybe I'm too much of a softy? I'm sure you've got plenty of enemies out there who could back me up with the best way to insult you?

I see what you did there.

That's pretty good. Too bad Nam didn't think of it first. He's probably off loose somewhere trying to impress a bum or ex-girlfriend with a lit cigar.

Hal  ....is that short for halitosis?
no wonder you're confused about how to breathe life into something.
You are supposed to stimulate life, not simulate life...
Blow-up dolls are not a realistic training tool.

anyway in the interest of fun

your mother was a mens room monitor
and your father was a fake security camera
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.

To pass time he enters misspelled words on purpose in a post to see if the spell checker results match his desk dictionary

The very concept of him making an intelligent post is itself a logical fallacy.

If Jesus returned he would ask him for autographed items for his Ebay store

He thinks the "Resource Limit" error is caused by the server being overwhelmed by the sheer intellectual depth of his posts

He checks the air pressure of the spare tire in his car - twice a week.
