I'm sure it will be fine.
My mum does agree that the doctors' advise to take antibiotics to make them settle down isn't a good idea.

Have you ever gone through the entire course of antibiotics, like you should, rather than taking them for a few days, think that they aren't working and stop?

Maybe. The Portal took such a nosedive a day or two before Christmas -I was hoping I could keep up a 60+ a day pace until new years, at least. :P

Still no sign of the Blams, but I've seen some submissions this morning that really should be blammed, such as the Pube Drew. Help us if you are able, people.

I've been Blamming steadily since 2004 and I've now passed 30,000, though I would like to think that I can reach Bahamut's lofty 40k some day soon.
Some day soon may be wishful thinking. It'll take at least the greater part of a decade with way things stand now. :'''(

I will get there. I just need to make it happen.

I would think the list updating and modding duties that you've taken on in the last several years would have that effect. I can't think of anyone who's taken on more responsibilities around here among people who aren't actually employed by NG.

And don't forget all those icons I did. 16,000 submissions is quite a portion of the portal. However, I feel those times are behind me. I liked it more when I had a consistent routine with them but that simply doesn't work with me anymore.

My specs, Odyssic:

Nice, is it a gaming PC? Graphic card is a bit lacking if it is but if it isn't, that's totally fine. Good choice in CPU, even though my CPU is newer than yours, you can actually overclock higher than me, don't know enough about the mobo however, I'll have to read up about it but overall, very cool build.

I remember doing some icons, but it was only a couple hundred, at most. How long did it take you to do 16,000 submissions worth?

I didn't build it with any thoughts of gaming, I just wanted a fast general use PC. Not sure if I mentioned before, but this was my first build. I just got the idea in my head one day, took my rudimentary knowledge of PCs and went for it. :P I must say it is cool having a PC you built from the ground up, not to mention I learned quite a bit.

I was wondering: Why is it, that in some countries you get the presents on 25th? I mean, Jesus was born on 24th, and to celebrate his birth, we bring each other presents. That makes sense. But presents on the 25th? Doesn't make too much sense... or is it because Jesus recieved his presents on the 25th?

I totally agree - they are demented in thinking that an increased amount of guns in the hands of the general public actually helps to lower gun crime. Statistically speaking, the more guns there are, the higher a chance that one is going to fall into the hands of someone who would be labelled as "unhinged"

Also, the statement: "If there where more guns, someone could've shot him!" or "Those people drive into towns/states where the guns are forbidden, so they can cause more damage" are just disgusting. Guess what? If guns where forbidden everywhere, then he couldn't cause any damage.

Also, there's one major flaw in their logic: That guy got the guns from his mother. So, his mother already owned guns. And did it help her? No.

You don't need a gun to protect yourself but this country sadly has the logic that to arrest someone for burglary, they must go through your house successfully and take whatever they find.

So, your law system does't know any "attempted crimes"? Here you can get busted if you "attempt" to commit a crime. And catching someone who enters your house without your permission is a pretty solid case.

Well that's it then. Absolutely nothing happened. Most disappointing thing that happened was Margaret Thatcher surviving from her operation.
Well, we have to wait until the next day is over. Since some claimed the apocalypse will happen on 23rd. But we will be disappointed again.
Who even cares anymore?

Too many people. Sadly.

So can we laugh off every end of the world prediction now?
I'm pretty sure the scientific predictions are right: When the sun explodes, the world will end. But this won't happen any time soon (in 4 billion years, I think).
I can accept that prediction but yeah, it's billions of years anyway so fuck it.

You mean, not even dragons live that long? ;)

Also, how can I watch new episodes if they aren't shown on Free TV? I won't get any Pay Per View TV channel just to watch that series.

Hiding away from the end of the world. :P

No. On 24th I was at my in-laws. Two parents-in-law, two sisters-in-law and one husband of my sister-in-law. The first sil with two kids (13 and 8), the second with one kid (2).
On 25th, I was at my mother's. Plus her common-law spouse. Plus my grandma and one of my uncles and his wife. Also, my brother, his gf and his two kids (4 and 1 1/2).
On 26th, I was at my father's. Plus his common-law spouse. Plus my aunt. Also, my brother, his gf and his two kids (4 and 1 1/2).

My family is getting too big for things like christmas. And worst of all: I had to go to work today. UGH!

Some people just don't react to antibiotics (and some are allergic to them). But yeah, doctors tend to prescribe too many antibiotics. It's hard to find a good doctor.

Because we genuinely don't know when he was born. Joseph was a clot and as a result, he lost the Birth Certificate. It could have been 3 weeks earlier, for all we know.

Because we genuinely don't know when he was born. Joseph was a clot and as a result, he lost the Birth Certificate. It could have been 3 weeks earlier, for all we know.

I thought it was some kind of mutual agreement that he was born on the 24th.

Not necessarily true - he could have obtained illegal weapons, but that would be a lot more inconvenient to being a madman, after all.

True. But I think it's much harder to catch someone who obtains illegal weapons than someone who buys them legally and then decides to go on a killing spree.

So, your law system does't know any "attempted crimes"? Here you can get busted if you "attempt" to commit a crime. And catching someone who enters your house without your permission is a pretty solid case.
The only attempted "crime" they'll see is you attacking the burglar. It's really bullshit. I'm just glad we haven't had any burglars here.

That really sucks.

Who even cares anymore?
Too many people. Sadly.
I can't care at all.

But the media. They need SOMETHING to write about. Even if it is complete bullshit.

I can accept that prediction but yeah, it's billions of years anyway so fuck it.
You mean, not even dragons live that long? ;)
Look, we're awesome and all but living for a billion years really is a stretch for us.

Anoxycalyx joubini (a sponge living in the antarctic) is approx. 10,000 years old. Lomatia tasmanica (a plant) is approx. 43,600 years old (maybe even over 135,000 years). I think living for a billion years is a stretch for anything, haha.
Also, Methuselah died at the age of 969, so humans really have a shitty life span... but just think how awesome it would be, if you really would live that long. All the stuff you could learn. And no regrets for wasting a day or two doing nothing. What are 2 days, if you still have 900 years left?

Buy the box sets!
Give me money!
Get your own damn money!

Shut up and give me money!

The Doctor is fucking amazing so you should never underestimate him.
Oh, the doctor did it. He saved us.

Oh but he doesn't save the world in that time where it's truly ending.

We will never know.
Maybe a Vogon Constructor Fleet will save us, after all.

It's always been the morning of the 25th where I'm from. I don't come from a religious family, so a question like that is totally lost on me. I remember Christmas growing up simply as a time to visit family and get excited over presents. :P

I'm not religious either. But I was just wondering, since we get our presents on the 24th.

I agree that some Doctors are too willing to give out Antibiotics. That's why I only go there if I'm genuinely sick.
Same, I try to make my trips to see them as little as possible. However, after a while it becomes mandatory to see one just to get prescription to give treatment to my eczema... Oh yeah, none of the cream to settle it down never works. Fucking con artists.

True. But I think it's much harder to catch someone who obtains illegal weapons than someone who buys them legally and then decides to go on a killing spree.

Oh yeah, but these occurrences are generally unavoidable, since we are only human, after all. Come to think of it, if we were attacking the second ammendment, we would be saying that no-one should have guns at all, because someone in the class is misbehaving with them, thus they should all be confiscated...

Fro hasn't been able to find his computer charger, but his new IPad allows him to say congrats to:

Coop: 113,000 B/P
Metal-Therapy: 38,000 B/P

I have family staying today so I have a very busy day ahead of myself. Life has been up and down for me as of lately, but its finally looking up! I've gone through divorce, living on the street, losing my job, to getting into a relationship, finding a job at the bottom of a business to only be promoted three times in less than a year to a great stable job! I'm next in line for management too! I have my own apartment, it may be small, but I'm making rent each month so that's all that matters to me. :P

There's ton more going on and that went down. A lot of it is personal, but I'd be willing to share the stories privately for now. All in all I'm in the right spot of my life now.

I'm going to hook the keyboard up to this thing tomorrow! Hopefully I didn't mess up, it's harder to type on this.

Congratulations - always nice to hear when someone makes it. I never liked the idea of paying rent, so someday I hope to get a place of my own, that belongs to me personally, rather than somewhere that I need to remove the shelves from when I get kicked out of and even though it was not my choice to move, I still have to make good.

I haven't quite made it yet, but with yearly raises and chance for performance bonuses I'm in a position where if I don't move up to management in the next few years I'm not stuck between a rock and a hard place. I can't quite afford a house yet so I have to pay rent. I guess if I could fine a house where I could make small payments for the next 30 years I could swing it, but then I have all these taxes and interest to worry about. I'm not ready for that.

I have a nice one bedroom, one bath apartment, and a little car that if it holds up for a few years I may just make it.

That bookshelf is awesome by the way. I can't do anything to change the apartment like that because I'll lose my security deposit.

Is not happy with how some members of my family treat me over certain thoughts. I had the misfortune to see the former headteacher of the terrible high school I went to and when my dad was speaking to me about that witch, I said that I'd rather not remember who she was and he was trying to shove his thoughts down my throat by saying "She wasn't a bad person". Does he not remember that I was bullied in that shithole and no-one was even willing to help me out?! The fact that they insist I should respect them in any way is sickening. It didn't help me that night when earlier before my dad was wanting me to have my hair short. These reasons alone killed my mood for the night and it was really too bad since I wanted to enjoy myself for my nan's 75th birthday. You're not going to win me over if you start mocking my life throughout the night as well.

Thankfully I am invited to a new year party in Liverpool so I can stay the fuck away from my family. After last time they are the last people that I want to celebrate new year with.

Listening to:

...Nothing, actually. The USB cable for the external hard drive packed it in so I now have to wait for a replacement. I only got the new power cable for it yesterday. I suppose after five years the cables have moved about a lot and they have been used well. External hard drive still works well which is amazing considering how many bad stories you might come across about them. Thankfully the iPod is still usable so it's a matter of using that for the time being.

So if you need to get someone arrested, you must let them attack you and steal your possessions.

I was looking through my profile just now and I happened to notice that little "Other Favorites" box down that's down at the bottom of your favorites page. It dawned on me that it was the same shit I wrote over 8 years ago when I first made this account, thus making it the only part of my profile to remain completely unchanged since its creation. (That even includes my alias itself, which I used to change all the time, back when you could do so at will.) :P

My movements in the physical world are tied inextricably to those within the Portal.

I suppose movement is necessary when interacting with a computer. :P I tend to separate the digital world from the physical when thinking about people chat with online, though. I would probably think differently if I actually knew the people here irl.

Looks nice, man. I'm digging the color! I've been doing some remodeling, myself. I just got a new carpet installed and a new bedroom set delivered. Not to mention a 37" flatscreen, which looks absolutely badass in my bedroom. (It is a huge upgrade from the 26" I had before.) :D

I have no problems with the Broncos, but I'm not a big Peyton Manning fan, or Eli for that matter. (I live in New England -shouldn't be too hard to figure out why.) :P
