I would have wanted to see that. Thankfully none of my friends have any obsession with it yet. It's all about Gangnam Style.

Rainy game, we went inside, but his sock was wet (you have to take your spikes off) and he slipped over. Classic

Let's just say Back to Earth can easily be retconned at this point. Red Dwarf X's starting episode is actually really good. The more I think about it the better it gets.
I'll get around to watching it at some point. Right now, I'm going through the Big Bang Theory back catalogue.
Only six episodes, though. And with that said, just two more days until the next episode.

I'll get there, it just won't be immediately. Look at how long it's taken me to get at the new Futurama... and still counting.

But when they say "Oh, you didn't get the job because someone had more experience than you." that's when I can give them the big F U.
Thus ruining any chances that you have with them, should another suitable position show up at that company. They don't care, but don't shoot yourself in the foot over it.
It's not like I'd get another opportunity with them anyway. Then again, that's if they DO phone me and most of them never even bother with that now. It's what I'd expect from a bunch of little Hitlers like them.

I'm sorry that it makes you feel this way.

I wonder how many entries that would give me in big companies.
You'd get plenty. I know of a few professional sport stars, with my surname.
In the town where my father lives, there is a man with the exact same name (name and surename). This is pretty surprising because a) our last name isn't really common, b) the town is very small (population about 2k).
We used to have similar - the guy who lived around the corner from us had my father's name and apparently, dad received a phone call about "setting someone up" Suffice to say, dad answered "I think you've got the wrong guy here, I don't get involved in drugs."

The line went dead.
Priceless.

Let's see, I had a call from someone who questioned my about my "father", where did he live a few years ago and when I said "I'm his son" she was all like "Ohhh, he got married?" and that's when I realized that she must have got a wrong number.

Wow, so you were a few years older than say "two" at the time :P

And once I got a call from some school, asking me if I knew some girl (I forgot the name). That call was kind of upsetting, because I had one of my final exams on that day and then I get a call early in the morning from some school? Oh man...

I would have hoped for a distraction like that. I got chatting to a female colleague and we exchanged numbers, only for her boyfriend to find out and phone me at 3am, just to fart down the line at me.

Right, I'm off to forage. Got to walk to nthe supermarket, grab ingredients, then come back and cook. All before trying to put my Mongols in space.

This reminds me, on one of my e-mail-adresses I regularly recieve e-mails that where supposed to go somewhere else. Most of the time people forget a number, or they write @gmx.de instead of @gmx.net or something like that.
Once, I got asked by a perfect stranger if I wanted to go for a walk, because the weather is so nice... I recieved activation codes for websites where I never signed up and I recieved an appointment date for a flat viewing (somewhere in Duesseldorf...).
Just today I recieved an e-mail from gmail, congratulating me for the new gmail-account that I just set up.

Barring the fact that I have already asked this a few years into the past, have forgotton the reply, can search for it, and do not feel like it, is the Wi/Ht Level Up! Lounge, essentially, a glorified general section, glorified in that it spans numerous topics with a sense of "decency" and mod endorsement (I assume), that is separated from the actual general section of the forum by way of posting any stats you have acquired and/or congruatulating/making lists of who said what stat for the sake of "keeping up with" the title of the thread?

Blammer 22 (First)
Blammer 23
Blammer 24
Blammer 25

etc.

I don't know much about it (I haven't read any of them, sorry Coop) but I think it's basically a story that Coop is writing that he post every 1k blams that he gets.

I have an alt that will be statwhoring today or tomorrow if that counts. If you're looking at my main account, then don't expect anything until I reach 30k EXP and that's 57 days away. The last achievement for this account was 29k EXP so my milestones are highly minimal now. Now if only I got myself to get more medals.

At least you have something to look forward to when you get back home. Everyone else will be sulking that the meet is over and they're back to their boring lives. :P

In all fairness, you are not at fault here. Now if you were to run the country and do things right, that would be pretty damn cool.
I'd use the shareholder power that we have over RBS and make a stand, dammit!

That's one step in the right direction.

There are two key parts of the title to look for here: Levelup!, basically meaning that any milestone of statistical significance can be shouted about in here, without fear of reprisal, and the ideal of "No stat threads" has been abided by.

Secondly, the title "Lounge", basically meaning that this is a thread for regulars to hang out in, post about their daily goings on and just have chit-chat with one another.

Hope this helps.

I found this song amusing, due to some of the cricketers dancing around the snooker room to it. One of them slipped and nearly concussed himself on the table.
After having to listen to this shit for 3 hours straight, I cannot find anything "amusing" about that song...
I'd rather Cary Rae was stuck in my head than Psy.
And yet another figure of speech I don't quite understand. :(
I'd rather go around remembering the video for Call Me Maybe, than the video for Gangnam Style. At least the Carly Rae Jephsen video has a woman singing in it.

Thanks for the explanation. But would you also rather have Rebecca Black on your mind, just because there's a girl singing in the video?

Well, at least your email address is a popular one. I get the usual shitty spam ones, but not weird pieces like that.

Those weird e-mails are one of the reasons I simply cannot abandon this mailaccount.

This is a meme that went completly past me.
A pudgy South Korean man, dressed in a suit, dancing as if to imitate riding a horse. Seriously, you've got to have somewhere on the internet to view this video, by now.

I think I saw about 30 seconds of that video. I hardly ever watch embedded videos, because most of the time it's boring shit.

One of my friends build a hammer out of cardboard boxes and aluminium foil one time at Wacken Open Air. When we went to the stage to see HammerFall the security wouldn't let him in at first. "Are you fucking kidding?!" was their first reaction...
I could understand if the band was called "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or "Guillotine", but it's just a fucking hammer!
Hm, a chainsaw build out of cardboard boxes... that would be interesting.
I think that would be like Homer's chainsaw in the Simpons Movie.

Hm, I can't remember that one. Yet, I've seen the movie. Strange.

I would not say "no stat threads" has been abided by; I would say it is a, "In order to keep spam out, this is the only stat thread allowed." type of thread, however, you are the mod and I am going to have to take your word for it. So, essentially, you have found a sneaky way to talk about whatever the hell you damn well please with other regulars away from the general masses? If so, then I am not worthy to converse with such gentlemen! Why, I have a record, if each record was printed on 8.5x11" paper each, that is 28 metres long! Oh it has been a long time, has it not?

It is, and it's free! However, I don't like Steam that much anymore so I'm staying away from the games as much as I can. I'm even wanting to get rid of my account.

That's all it is these days. It's sad to think this but I doubt this thread will even be alive in 12 months time.

Let's just say once one or two of us are done here, this thread will no longer have its daily activities.

Yes it will, you guys will still be here, so will I and the few other semi-regulars and I'm sure plenty of new people will appear. Maybe if we all put a link to it on our userpages with a small explanation what this great thread is about we could attract so more peeps. And let's keep in mind we are all getting higher in Levels so the achievements are few and far between nowadays but that was always to be expected. So we need to get some new lower Lvl Newgrounders posting here. Maybe if Coop or Bahamut or Haggard (one of you guys) could make a short 'Rules of the thread post', so the newbies know what's acceptable posting and that there's absolutely no fucking around in here and spammers/trolls will be severely dealt with, with bans. Things could greatly improve in here. Not that I don't already think they're great.

Yes it will if a couple of you guys leave, I'm sure others would gladly pick up the dropped ball and run with it.

It's not sneaky - most forums aside from General have a Lounge Thread.

Marvellous! I'm looking forward to it. It would be nice to see some more of the General BBS posters as well as people from the other Forums posting in here. Most of them probably aren't even aware of this thread. It will be interesting to see what happens.
