Re: Question for Icelandic and/or Icelandic-speaking forumit

I always thought Björk was a very cool name until I heard English-speaking people try to say it. The Ö is pronounced very similar to the EA part of "earth", if you're wondering. On the topic of regional differences, all the Scandinavian languages are basically mutations of Icelandic, which...

Re: Its over 3999!

Yay! Three cheers for the old g. . .guard. Yes. Old guard. It's actually really cool to see such an obviously tight-knit, mutually respectful and cheerful community with such huge post counts. I've seen my share of forums of various ages, sizes, consciences and levels of insularity, and you guys cou...

Re: Season 1 Share List?

I hesitate to ask, but if I wanted in on this, how far down the list do you figure Sweden would go? I don't even know if it counts as "continental Europe". Not that I expect anyone to permit sending their valued discs to me, being a perfect stranger and all, but thinking forward maybe the ...

Re: Wish Corrupting Game

Granted. You'll never have to type on anything again! Your assistant has to do it for you, after the. . .accident.

I wish Dan Harmon had been allowed to run the fourth season of Community, wrapping the series up perfectly.

Re: Introduce yourselves! (A friendly topic for new members)

You were cheated if you paid money for the sun, I'm sorry to say. I just claimed it, like people do with unclaimed property. If no one thought of it before I did, in 2004, it's really mine. I'm refusing to profit from it so I don't get blamed when it hurts people, so it really makes no difference ab...

Re: Who uses cheats?

I do like games to challenge me, but I also have absolutely no respect for the designers' ability to predict how challenged I want to be. I'll play games on my own terms. You might call that cheating, but I call it taking responsibility for my own entertainment. For example I like to play Diablo 2 w...

Re: Fear Itself

I'm not scared of clowns at all, and spiders are fine as long as they bleed. ("Predator" quote goes here.) On fire, sure, it'd be a little more challenging to stomp them. But I've been surprised by fires in my living room (don't take your eyes off burning candles, guys) without being scare...

Granted. An infinitely fast Internet connection infinitely slowed down by unstoppable amounts of streaming, unpauseable horse porn is yours.

On an unrelated topic, I wish I had a girlfriend.

Re: Introduce yourselves! (A friendly topic for new members)

Hello. I'm Amake. (The E is silent.) I once soared the greatest heights of the Internet, but in the end it was no more than a castle of clouds and dreams and, like Icaros, it all fell down. And that's how I ended up here, a beggar at the door of comedy. I am, in no particular order, a writer, a Scor...
