Bah. It won't be convincing unless someone has a horrible disease. Oh! What about leprosy? That can be easily faked and can be really gruesome!

Oh yeah! But that would be more suited to Jerry Springer. But that don't mean we couldn't get together after the show for beers and the like. I hear that even the most shoddy of talk shows pays for your airfare.
He could do some show on how the internet warps people's sense of reality. Like the Matrix!!


*must. Stop. Watching. Matrix*
chester
ooo! i can be an out of control teen and you could be my gang!.leo could be my tramatized mother who want to send me to boot-camp!

Failing that we could send a crack team of forumites to kidnap the queen of a major royal (we all know how lax security is) and demand and hefty ransom which would mean that we could all meet in like cuba or something...stop me if sound a little mad

I don't see why there would have to be an age limit as long as you look after yourself - ie--don't drink if you're under age and the such.

Once again...it depends if people are interested and if people can make it and we would need to decide what we would do whilst all together.

WeeJ
It'd have to be on a Saturday so worky people could go...
chester
im still up fpr the talk show idea.... but who all would come?there are 400 something members, but only, like, 30 active ones. hm... we could be an afriacn tribe that was separated when poatchers mistakes us for ... um.... big foot. now oprah, or montel, or even springer could reassemble us. oooo its could be a sketch on conan o'obrien! but hes not too rich... lets stick with oprah....

porcelainwarrior
tara not signed inn no more i dont think ... not sure ... /me goes to check
Phyllis
i think we'd have a better chance with springer and the e-wives/e-hubbies thing. seems like somethin he might go for.

*is seriously gonna check into this..lmfao*

hrm..i wonder if they'll need proof? lol. leo would have to do a lot of lovey dovey e-mailing, i think. biggrin.gif and then we could forward the emails to springer. they could be all the same letter really..hehe.

Phyllis
i think it'd be somewhere around 409 kg

but i could be wrong..been a long time since i had to convert anything like that. is it 2.2 kg/ 1 pound? hrm.
Rattgirl
*sniffles* I can't believe my mommie was on and I missed her....*sigh*

anyway...

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of ISCA....('tis a text-only bbs, big in the Midwest and in some small areas of Europe, from what I've seen)...it's actually based out of Iowa City (where I am), and every year, spring and fall, they have ISCANic's at City Park where everyone who can make it gets together, eats bucketloads of food, talks, plays games (usually flag football and mock swordfighting, but that's just the kind of geeks we are rolleyes.gif), and then afterwards there are usually one or two parties at some unlucky souls' houses where everyone drinks like fish and many tales are created and rehashed for the following months.

It's a lot of fun biggrin.gif

Anyway, we have people regularly attending the Nic's coming from places like Sweden and Germany, (although the majority of the folk are from the US) so it's probably possible to make a MataNic...just have to find discount airfare for all us poor folk cool.gif
racingaway13
i want to meet people.... but i live in maryland. its too far to meet crazi not to mention the fact that we have thought up about every single plan to finagle it but the most plausable one is still waiting for teleportation technology or a drivers liscence and car...
though i remember reading in the prolouge to a douglas adams book about the book "see europe for under $5 a day".... hummmm
i dont think im in that socio-economic bracket....


honestly, how hard could teleportation be!!!
*picks up his book "quantum mechanics for dummies"*
*his head explodes*
Phyllis
lmao...i would SERIOUSLY do the jerry springer thing tongue.gif

would anyone else though? hehe. i'd be amazed if we even made it onto the show, but that'd be hilarious if we did. could break chairs over each other's head. mm fun.

You live in Iowa? WOW...that is cool. (I am assuming Iowa City is in Iowa...) My whole dad's side of the family is from there, and I am actually going to see the good ole' gang in a couple of weeks.

Note To Everyone: If you live in Iowa...you are probably related to me. Us Abeles have some pretty deep roots up there...
Rattgirl
No way, you're gonna be in Iowa???? Where at? and when? 'cuz it'd be damn cool if it was around my birthday 'cuz then you could celebrate me birfday wif me tongue.gif


HI MOMMIE!!!!!
Sarah the Spider
HI MY LOVELY N00B!

I'm going the week of the 21. I am not sure what all we are doing but I can let you know.
Rattgirl
groovy...that's the weekend after me b-day but tha's ok. Are you actually gonna be in the IC area? If so that'd be so insanely freaky-but-cool blink.gif
Little Green Goth
Acctually we don't really need to pretend to be brothers or sisters, even though that's all cool and everything. Oprah has been known to bring groupes of people together who have suported eachother over the years and just in my short time being here it's obvious that happens. You just need someone to come up with a convincing enough sob story.

I don't think any one's actually serious about meeting up now considering this thread has dies a spammy death dry.gif

Oh well...I'll meet myself. I know me well and I won't be surprised at how short/tall I am when I get to meet me.

/me sniffs tea...I think someone's slipped summat funny in my beverage :/
hinsley
im gonna do the same, i deffo wont be disappointed in meeting me, and ill never have to leave myself so no stupid goodbyes.
WeeJ
i just thought people might be interested in meeting other forum people in a casual way...but never mind.

Right, to slip back on topic ..

It doesn't seem very possible, does it? And if it did, there'd be separate meetings for the UK folks and the 'Merica folks, which would be terribly, terribly sad, because I know that most people on here in America would be extremely dissapointed and not feel it was "the same" without meeting their brit/scot counterpart, channo, folks? Hey, we're all one close knit little forum. It would take a good deal of money and several months in advance in planning. Not LIKELY, but oh-so-possible.

Not to mention us underage with protective parents ...

Very good point...the amount of organising necessary would be ming boggling.

Shame though sad.gif Be nice to meet people IRL

I still intend to get a gathering in Manchester. I'm putting it off for now, just to see if I'll be able to have the house for meself later in the summer - that way there could be floor-kipping arrangements for long-haul travellers.

Failing that, I plan to pin leo down for a jar or two in the Thirsty Scholar. Word.
