People have never liked me. Sigh.

Join the club.

Your fault, of course.

Ok, I've learned the secret to being popular: Learn how matter curves space and space curves matter.

Hey wait: I don't want to be popular.

There was some talk among mods about inviting Obv Leo back. So far, he remains in limbo, due to his derailing of science threads. I liked him over in PCF, though.

Regarding optimal posting styles for getting responses: try consolidating a meandering soliloquy into a single post? I think the Australian actress Teresa Palmer looks like my cat. My cat is very pretty.

R.I.P. Leo. Loved your brilliant, wonderfully creative mind.

Were you friends, Dragonfly?

Well, I was hoping meandering posts would help me attain "Resident Expert" status more quickly. How many posts does it take?

LOL@ your cat :-)

Would it be possble to post a thread, informing members? I hadn't heard this, DragonFly. I can think of several members who would like to know this. Very sorry to hear this. Do you know if Mr. DeJong was able to finish his philosophic book? He worked on it for many years.

I've been browsing the various functions of the website. What difference does it make if you assign "friend" or "foe" status to a fellow member? Do they vaporize instantaneously if recognized as foe?

If you become "friends" with another member, do you get access to their wealth?

Erm wanna be friends?

Makes good sense to keep a backup.

Moved to where? The broom closet?

It seems to be in the lounge with a little red arrow, and also in odds and ends.

It's almost the end of the year. Will there be a "2017 Mods in Skimpy Bikinis" calendar I can send away for?

Is it just me, or has there been a paradigm shift towards allowing more rubbish here?

It's a good thing. Can't be serious all the time, eh?

I know others feel the same. Kneel down and be heard. I mean stand up.

In layman's terms... it's not so much that the neighborhood has gone; more that ... we always expected stiff resistance from the Swiss.

Bedtime. Love you all (he lied). Just the ones I love.

This is the other place where we can examine the Bells theorem error.

Did anyone check the clapper? (*duh*)
