Welcome aboard, and remember what Alice said:

"But I don't want to go among Mad people!"

"Oh, you can't help that," Replied the Cheshire cat, "We're all a bit mad, 'round here... Why, You may have noticed, I'm not all there, myself!"

Cheshire Cat slowly fades away.

Enjoy your stay...

Welcome to the forums.

Don't be scared of us, seriously. We're all lovely, friendly, non-destructive people who love fresh meat new friends. smile.gif

Our love of Mata brings us closer together! Let's embrace it in a warm and tender fashion.

*hugs*

I'd tell you to run from all the tape-lovers, but it's far too late for that...
For now.. good luck, keep posting and I hope to see you around!

Hello there!
Everone's very friendly!
Er... After my traumatic experiences when I joined my sage advice would be watch out for the following:

1: Abduction ( Scary! )
2: Gaffer tape ( Chafes! )
3: High explosives ( Stings! )
4: Cookies ( yum! )

No time for love Dr Jones!!!

It's also the title of a book by George Orwell...
And a song by David Bowie...

other cool things about 1984? I was 8 years old, I hadn't worked out that school was anything other than fun, I think I had had my first girlfriend by that point, all the numbers added together make 22 biggrin.gif we were only a year away from thundercats and was already watching He-Man.

Anybody else got memories from 1984?

Oh and MAtthew, Are you aware that in the store room next to my office I have access to over 200 rolls of Gaffa tape in 2 colours both gloss and matt, electrical tape 300 rolls in 7 colours, hazard tape 20 rolls and my personal favourite glow tape... that really glows in the dark. Tape is my friend biggrin.gif

In the words of some other members of this forum at some point I can't remember and can't be bothered to look up:

-Tape is a gateway drug
-To what... Glue?
-Yes!

After the years of fruitless searching, and the mistakes I made following
the meths drinking tramps treasure map...

At last! Gaffa nirvana!

Welcome bryden42 !

The duct tape thing is a little tradition. We tape noobs to the ceiling of the forum. It keeps them in one place long enough to great and the virtual tape breaks about the time they hit member status. Also it provides the newbie a good vantage point to view the forums.

Um, you've already reached that so I suppose I'll just hand you a cookie.
*Hands over a cookie that's around a foot in diameter*

Enjoy!

Welcome also to Matthew. smile.gif

The Technicolor cookies are the best, man! like, oh, wow! tongue.gif

Yes. Yes I do.

Wait....no, no I don't, seeing as that was two years before I was born happy.gif

Though I did like the book and I do like Indiana's movies, if that counts >.>

Posted by: PsychWardMike Sep 3 2005, 04:15 AM

Yes. The book was amazing... and so was the movie, but mostly the book! I've read it four times this summer alone!

Anyway, 1987 here. Nice to have you aboard, though.

Enjoy!

Have fun here, and try to type following the rules of correct English. Or else Mata will come and give you a spanking. Don't be afraid to ask questions, don't be an idiot, and try not to offend people. I can't think of anything else you need to know right now, so I'm off to try to resurrect an old thread. Again, enjoy yourself here! smile.gif
