    That's why my friend quit, back in the day.

    I never usually buy anything more than a DVD from there. My g/f just got a TV, and wouldn't you know it.. it was defective. Horrible audio. Like, really bad.
    We returned it today and got a different one, though.

    Everyone may call me Fons.

    Heh heh. At Future Shop (Canada's Best Buy equal... I think) Someone thought me and my Dad were a bunch of n00bs because we asked for a price check on something and possibly because we were dressed in Sunday clothing.

    Guy: "It's [Price]"

    Me and dad nod: Okay.

    Guy: But look at this this ones ten bucks cheaper, and look it's brand name! You can't go wrong with brand name!

    Me and Dad: *Rofl'ing at lesser quality product which I wouln't use.*

    Guy: See BRAND NAME!

    Me: Yeah Microsoft is a brand name too (meaning that in a bad way) I think we will take this one..

    He walked away laughing knowing he was full of it, on top of that someone commented that e machines were "great computers".

    *SIGH*

    That scares me more than the picture does.
    It's been locked; it's an old thread, that's why. Adam unlocked it one year to mark an anniversary then promptly locked it again.
    Only if you come in during the 21 or so off-hours.

    And I'm all for, "IFOTOS Release Thread".

    Dorkman also unlocked it this year for its three-year anniversary and left it open a coupla days.

    I propose "This *IS* Meatball" for the new Social Thread.

    That or "Question for Ryan_W".

    Although that second one could backfire occasionally.

    Tempting... it'd be interesting to see if it'd prevent n00b threads... then they'd go to the thread and say something, and it'd get ignored. Heh, I like it.

    Here's another one somebody thought of.


    Iron Fist of the Obsidian 'S'oc'I'al 'TH'read


    But I like the "Release" one better.

    You should see what I have saved of you.
    And I don't consider it creepy. I have pictures of all of my friends, but for the people around here I like and talk to regularly, I don't exactly have the same chances for pictures. It's not like I have a gig's worth of photos or anything. Just a few neat ones. That one was the first time I'd ever seen what Funk looked like, as he'd been hiding his identity. It just seemed fitting, especially since I pictured him totally differently.



    I like the Ryan_W one, and while I appreciate his work as much as the next guy, well.. maybe a little less (:D), do we really want his name on the top of the thread list staring at us every day? That might be a bit much.
    In light of this, I think the Meatball title is fair game.


    EDIT: And Constant.. I want to know what you were buying, lol.

    Whatever works, it'll probably change once something 'special' happens again.

    Of course. We must keep with the times. What was this one before we changed it to it's ultimate name that had Funk screaming, "YES!YES!YES!"?

    Edit: I just looked. This title is much better than the first one though.

    Seriously, it's like I have no time for the simple pleasures of boring you guys with my ridicilously long posts anymore. What am I supposed to do? Get a blog? That's nerd-talk.

    Feels good to post here though. It really does.

    -Matt

    (Edit: On the topic of the name of the new social thread. I vote:

    "The presence of the everlasting know-it-all"
    "The -REAL- "Alan Parson Project""
    "Captain Bertocci and the Thread of Tomorrow"
    or
    "The cone of silence"

    but that's just me.)

    Matt is the winner.

    Would you believe second place runner-up?

    How about honorable mention and a complimentary t-shirt?

    Dorkman has inspired me.

    In hindsight, it's the most obvious title we'll ever have.

    "We -- have all been blind --
    And yet the answer is staring us in the face."



    Although for a while I was seriously considering "Social Thread v6.0 -- Now Featuring at least Four Confirmed Women"

    I'm tempted to lock it at 9999. Just to screw with you all.

    When does the next social thread usually get posted? Like, right after the end of the last one, or the next day, or something?

    Ok, I'll take 2nd to last post.

    I also nominate the Meatball one, as its similar to my first suggestion.
