1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    A Russian, an Ethiopian and a Singaporean were being surveyed by the World Bank. The question was "What is your opinion on how much money you spend on food?"



    The Ethiopian asked, "What is food?"
    The Russian asked, "What is money?"
    The Singaporean asked, "What is an opinion?"

    A world-wide survey was conducted by the UN.

    The only question asked was... : "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

    The survey was a huge failure because...:

    In Africa they didn't know what "food" means.

    In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" means.

    In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" means.

    In China they didn't know what "opinion" means.

    In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" means.

    In South America they didn't know what "please" means.

    In the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" means.

    I would have preferred a billion dollar backpack.

    Doable if your backpack contains the antimatter bomb from Angels & Demons. Actually it would be worth several trillion dollars.

    I always imagined my dream house constructed from glass and coming out of the side of a canyon ala the cover of Air - 10,000 HZ Legend. [​IMG] This house looks better because it isn't located in a grey, polluted urban armpit. And it's probably cheaper to boot.
