    How do you live with yourselves?

    It is 9:40 on a Friday and you are by yourselves, trolling the intertubes for something to rage about. Go get laid, or at least invite some people over for DnD.

    You would think, but I work 3:30 to midnight and while my line is down I have nothing better to do.

    Don't be ridiculous, this is far more fun. Also, I am already lettered to my satisfaction.

    Bored? Instead of posting you could read some of the "legendary" threads here at the AT Wiki:

    http://at-wiki.com/index.php?title=Legendary_threads


    Try the mod drama thread. Drama ... and plenty of it.

    Foolish mortals, it's "Grimoire Nitsy" from the Narnian "Nieste" which of course was the less than respectable word used to banish all red headed, left handed, step children from Charn prior to the end of history.

    Communication is the art of sharing ideas and thoughts. The drab, dyslexic, dreck spewed by intarweb 'youts' merely adds noise to an overly busy world.

    Yeah? Well, your mother is so unlettered that she mistakes malapropism for other similar sounding words.

    I fully expect "texting speak" to degenerate to the equivalent of grunting.

    Only because the primitive masses can now afford technology.

    No, because appearing ignorant somehow became fashionable. The problem is that becoming comfortable with "text speak," leads to confusion, muddy thinking and, loss of freedom. It's also a gateway behavior to becoming corporate drones, television evangelists and, "alpha" ballers.
