    16 for me.............and I just got better! ;) In that time I have raised two toddlers to adults and one is married. That's how you know you've aged, when your kids are freaking married!!!

    Lets see...I've had 3 professional careers, lived in two different States & 8 different cities, and married & have a toddler with a second one on the way this year. So yeah, I understand. The list just keeps growing. :p

    Yep. Two of my best friends met here, dated, and got married. And are still married all these years later. It was the only wedding that I ever attended as a guest that I had tears. It was one of those amazing things to see.

    @greyjedi125 & I met many, many years ago (2009). Its always amazing to see people in person. It only reaffirmed our great friendship & brotherhood on the boards is the same in real life. I know the internet is filled with doom & gloom and some really awful people. But there's also good people, little rays of sunlight in the darkness. And its those people that make places like the boards here worthwhile and a story to tell.

    My brother met his wife through me here, @GoddessJainaSoloFel and they are still married, she's Canadian and he's Australian (I know weird that my brother is an Aussie too!) and my daughter met her husband through me here - @Albaholly - they've been married 2.5 years and he's from Manchester England, they live here too. Two other members who I won't name but have left met because they had to come together to meet me when I went to the US and that was 14 years ago and they are still together! In my mind Star Wars is like the Force it binds us. ;)

    Eh, they dont kill................well one man died yesterday because he fell off his bike and hit his head and even with a helmet on it killed him. But the Maggie didn't do it per say. I've been swooped, you keep your head down and DO NOT LOOK UP, there are been eyes lost by kids who look up. They are just protecting their nests this time of year.

    Having watched that, they are English, do they live here or are they in England!?!?! Cause it looks like England to me!!!

    He dude that died was 76 - had a heart attack when he fell apparently.

    And it was like a whirlpool that sucked you down into the depths where recovering from it was impossible. Yes?

    So, in other words you're the unofficial match-maker of the JCF then, eh? Do you take volunteers to make introductions for? Asking for a friend... :p

    So, a question, since I'm finally getting my professional & personal life balance back together.

    Where do I post (Resource or here?) about Paradoxical Echoes recruiting new players? [face_dunno] I can't seem to remember & what I do remember, I don't even know is being used anymore in Resource in a meaningful fashion to recruit.

    We finally got our wiki library updated for the next "chapter" of our game and we're ready to steam ahead. Its only taken since March. :rolleyes: Not like I'm OCD or a perfectionist or anything like that. [face_liarliar] In any event, with my GM plate clean of the wiki updates, I have lots & lots & lots of time to post in the game now. Consequently, we have a big universe, amazing storyline & current players, and in need of more players.

    Not sure, I check the interest measurement thread from time to time, Hoopers, and game titles for that thing normally if I want a new game on my plate.

    Glad to hear that things are becoming more balanced :)

    There is also a thread regarding casting for specific roles over here. That might be of interest too.
