    I met @Darth Punk at a Star Wars convention in London. Would not have gone there if not for Punk, so I was there thanks to the JCC.
    I bought a Chewbacca wallet at the convention.

    A few months later I was in a bar and the owner and the 7-foot doorman noticed my Chewbacca wallet. They're now moviegoing buddies.

    So I actually got more real life friends thanks to the JCC.

    I feel like I would've ended up at reddit later so I don't fully blame you for that.

    I used to only post in the Lit and TV forum but stopped as TFA was coming out. If not every post would just be about how much I hate Disney ect ect. After a few years found JCC. I used to only post when I felt I had something to contribute, JCC taught me to forget that. Thanks JCC!

    I remember you from Lit, @Darth_Foo .
    I think we got banned together, getting in ChildOfWinds' hair.

    Met and became close friends with @Claire1976 at Celebration London which I went to despite living on the other side of the spinning globe.

    Have become close friends with several other, mostly American, members too, and only the pandemic has stopped some of us from meeting.

    It's the first thing I call up on the internet every day for the past 8 years or so.

    @Souderwan let me stay in his home for a month when I had an epiphany that my father was an abusive narcissist and that I had been an abusive narcissist in training.

    I imagine they appreciated the joke implying you learned something. Anything.

    guess a few more years in the jcc before you learn what "a lot of likes" are

    As I recall, in those that don't have a developed concept of numbers (including animals), counting can often be thought of as "one", "two", "many", where the only numbers they have a real concept of are one and two, and everything after that is grouped together somewhat. Sometimes going a tad higher, but then after that differences are more based on ratios

    you have to understand - this is their way of saying they love your posts and want you to post more often.

    I meant in terms of the number of things I've said here which would tank a candidacy, gez. Keep up.

    So occasionally the JCC can be credited with doing unmitigated good

    You'll have to find the original post. There was a semi-ridiculous "Noah's Ark" theme park built somewhere in the US that had a lien placed against it for unpaid bills. People had been critiquing it for some time. Rogue1.5 very under-statedly just posts a single quote from Jesus in the Bible about how people will laugh if you try to make something without having the money to afford it. It is the single best joke that has ever been made on the entire JCC. Full stop.

    I feel like I'd tank a run for public office in my area simply by saying, "The California state COVID restrictions are appropriate and probably didn't go far enough."
