Hi everyone! This is my second post, and I was thinking how hard it is to get stars! So this is for all you newbies! Come into here, we'll chat a while, and once you get up there in stars, you can move on to bigger and better things. Sounds great, huh? Well, It's an experiment.

Oki, actually this is kind of annoying me now. I speak on the behalf of the posters that have been around as long as I and longer... STOP IT, YOU NEWBIES! I know that I may have posted some meaningless things lately, but I only did it in spite of the newbies... I know, I'm confusing. So can you lot from now on post things that are a bit more meaningful? Not just dumb questions (actually dumb questions, not saying that just asking questions are dumb) or commenting that you're posting simply for the number... PLEASE.

Instead, since it would be a waste of this thread, maybe you youngin's to the boards can talk about how you found GC, why you like it, what you're like... I dunno, you make up your PUNY MINDS !

well, twinkie, I do believe I said pretty much the same thing a few weeks ago, but snag said they WANT to newbies to post their pointless opening threads like this, and, well, in the last couple days I've been posting pointlessly because I'm quite anxious right now..dunno why, bah, well, ciao

yeah, I know I get that a lot too, but thats because I look at all of todays active topics, open about 10 of them and read and post as I go, and the spead I read combined with my typing leads to a lot of blockage...but, oh well, small price to pay, ciao.....damnit....I got the spam protection notice again....

hot topic is a quiggy store, though I wish they weren't expensive, it's like saying "hey I'm not preppy spending $50 on a pair of pants, I'm an outcast spending $50 on a pair of pants.." just dosn't work that way...but I like their t-shirts and buttons and bumper stickers though...

Or on some meaningless crap out of a novelty magazine.

I guess since Brad Pitt was in Interview with the Vampire, that's an appropriate remark. lol.

I loved Eight Legged Freaks, speaking of good movies. For anyone who remembers Kingdom of the Spiders or Swarm, it's a pretty funny throwback to those '70s when-animals-mutate-and-attack movies.
