    Somewhat shockingly, I woke up at around 4 due to a wolf spider walking on my face.

    I'm getting real tired of websites blocking my access to their site, by saying I need to disable my adblocker when I don't have an ad blocker active. I'm getting super annoyed and not sure why this is a thing...

    well since its random i sometimes think about the concept of age and how ridiculously meaningless it is ! i mean why would someone celebrate the day they started spinning around the sun and why does it matter and more importantly why keep track of your age ? and some people even use things like age calculator . its like you are gettin closer and closer to your death every hour !

    All this time I was using the participle "enjoined" when "to injunct" is a legitimate back-formation.

    New Yorkers are just....well....squirrelly:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...ghborhood-fear

    At least three people in Rego Park, in the borough of Queens, have been jumped upon and bitten by the possibly deranged squirrel in recent weeks. The tree-based rodent’s reign of terror has made some people in the area afraid to go outside without being armed with pepper spray or other anti-squirrel weaponry.
    Anti-squirrel weaponry?

    I just realized --- all those old-timey allusions from the Bible, poetry, literature, or the Classics, that people tended to pepper into their speech and writing up to the early 20th century are pretty much the equivalent of contemporary Internet memes.

    You know the sort I mean, 'And here am I as Laoco÷n before the very Hesperides on the night the poet saw Jericho' or some such

    Those allusions, often recurring as stock phrases, had a specific evocative content that is categorically similar to memes.

    I find it disturbing how so many regular posters (and not just this forum) suddenly stopped posting. It happened during this pandemic and when so many people lost their jobs. I worry about them.

    With the announcement of the remaster of RTW, I've been looking through the old posts in the forum, and man does the nostalgia hit hard. The days of hundreds of users visiting every day may be gone, but the fond memories live on.



    Edit: I did the math, Ive been on here for nearly 14 years. Thats wild.

    Last night I spent an hour or so just looking through old threads from like 2010 and you just see all the users who I used to chat with every day and now have moved on with their lives one way or another. Which makes me wonder why the hell we are still here.

    I kid, I kid. This place has a weird hold on me that keeps me coming back, even after all this time.

    Some of us grew up here - like me - joining when we were young and now we're kinda... well, not old, but we're not getting younger either.

    TW Org for me is pure nostalgia and I'm perfectly fine with that. Glad to keep this old little place running.

    Excellent way of putting it! I joined when I was just 15 years old, and did a lot of growing up on here. I vividly remember when I first joined I was arguing about something and another Orgah told me "you would be taken a lot more seriously if you used proper punctuation." Never made that mistake again.

    So this evening I found out that the dog who I initially applied to adopt got euthanized for severely attacking his owner just a month after being adopted. But because that dog was adopted before I could, I went with another dog, who I have had for almost two years now and adore. I'm completely floored- had that other person not adopted that dog, things would have been very different. Crazy how things work out like this, isn't it?

    They really do! Except when they are shedding over everything, which my dog Annie doing is right now as she sheds her winter coat for the summer months.

    Regardless, I was living alone for the first 7 months of the pandemic, so having a companion during the isolation was a life saver. She has a fascinating backstory too, she was rescued from wandering the woods of North Carolina after being shot by a farmer for going after his chickens. Now she lives a much happier life where the only terrorizing she does is the local rodent population (she is an avid ratter).
