    JE it wasn't so much the "I don't get it factor" but the fact that when I *did* get it, it turned out to be your standard dystopian evil government/corporations/genetic testing/murders/eugenics thing.

    Dude, I totally get where you're coming from! I was watching Titanic and I said to my friend "When do you think the boat is gonna sink?" and she like, totally cracked it with me! I mean, hello! It's called Titanic! It's not like it's gonna be fine and get to America and become the world's biggest floating city or anything!


    Like, people who don't know anything about history suck!

    Yeh. The other day in my LOTR history class some guy didn't even know when the third age of middle earth was. I was like 'Duh, it was in the 1200s, just after the reign of Richard the Lionheart'. Needless to say he didn't believe me. Then he beat me up.

    Ah! I finally found the Melbourne thread! I recognize many of you from The Galactic Centre and Vader's Mousedroid Society.
    Anyhow - my Melbourne is a dead FanForce that I'm actively re-recruiting for - in the mean time, would you please adopt me!
    There's much more action here!

    Thank you! My little cantina does OK though - It's a nice quite place for a scoundrel to get a drink and lay low - I open it for hurricane parties - you guys get those nasty Pacific storms too, right?
    Melbourne Florida is a waterfront community 30 min. south of the Kennedy Space center - pretty much just a suburb with some aerospace support industry - no way as near a cosmopolitan as you guys are - I live south of the city in the country with the fisherman and ranchers. I guess we got a little in common, eh?

    Tough questions, indeed!

    Is Bloodlines any good?
    I'm running it just under minimum specs so it's slooooow. The dialogue isn't anywhere near as brilliant as KOTOR, but it's fun to randomly attack and feed on people in dark alleyways. Not that I would...[face_thinking]

    But for $25 at EB, why not?

    When did Dan become manager of TWO forums?
    When the previous Manager accidentally brutally stabbed himself in the stomach while shaving. And since the other one very sadly accidentally brutally cut his head off while combing his hair.

    And why can't I say the name Tristram?
    Two 'r' sounds in the one word. It's too hard.

    Why is Steve Coogan attractive?
    Um...no comment :p

    Why can't I find 'Betrayal'? Why is the Frankston line so freaky? When is JAG coming back to TV? And why has my Hotmail account suddenly been flooded with spam?

    ANSWER ME!

    Awesome, Bloodlines is now on my buying list. Whee! I am all for the killing and feeding on people in dark all...I mean *cough*, can't wait for that dialogue!

    Now, lets see what answers I can find...

    Why can't I find 'Betrayal'?

    Because (and this is insider knowledge!) the Australian suppliers didn't buy enough stock to distribute evenly amongst most sellers in Victoria. Sydney got a heap. Jerks. I'll keep harrassing the inventory people at work ;)

    Why is the Frankston line so freaky?

    You didn't know? The Frankston line the last trek on the pilgrimage to Freak Mecca. You're just caught up in a religious experience that begins in the country and ends at Savers.

    When is JAG coming back to TV?

    Never! Well, no. I lie. Christmas, probably. Seeing as they don't show Sliders or Stargate then [face_geek]

    And why has my Hotmail account suddenly been flooded with spam?

    I'm going to blame J-E with that one. He's always doing things like that. Doesn't have control of the rights ide of his body, you see. I think it's been possessed by his dead evil twin. Or maybe the ghost of an ex-girlfriend. I have set the Supernatural boys on to it, though. I'm going to pay them in sleep overs, but I think it will be worth all the effort they put in.

    And you know, they're hot.


    Now if I could get Steve Coogan to join the show, I'd be set... [face_thinking]

    Yes, one voter; 16,472 votes. A slight anomaly?

    I'm sorry, are you making fun of Savers?
