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.

    Legos are objectively wonderful. The more knowledge of toys one possesses, the more one realizes this fundamental truth.

    Was your 70s upbringing one of deprivation and joylessness? My soul has feelings of sorrowfulness to think of this.

    I feel like I'm on Candid Camera everyone be all like "Oh man I cherish of Lego so much joy they did bring" and other cuckoo things just waiting to see how I respond. Alan Funt is gonna have to come out pretty soon.

    Reminds me of when they stopped making Twinkies of a sudden everyone was all like "Oh Lord no I belove Twinkie please don't let it be true they discontinee!" ain't no one at no damn Twinkies.

    As a parent, I can vouch for the enduring popularity of Legos (and similar toys) with the under-five set.

    You only had one? That defeats the whole purpose... no wonder you don't get it.

    I am an American but I say Lego (without the s at the end). Maybe its my Dutch heritage gets me to saying it without the s.

    Here's the thing. If you determine ethnicity by "blood particles" (or however the scientists say it nowadays), then you'd say I'm German-core. But, I've been told by knowledgeable people (whom I trust) that when I came out of the womb, the Lord put a Dutch soul in to me.

    (I do not know why I have a French name, tbh.)

    Have you thought about asking the Lord to put a Dutch soul in to you?

    Inspired by a drive today, why do people slow down at speed cameras when they're already going 5 or 10 mph under the limit? Traffic is moving somewhat slowly, but sure enough, at the camera, about a third of the drivers noticeably slow down. Look, I know the schools in DC are bad, but people can't be THAT stupid, can they? For that matter, shouldn't they realize that the cameras only ticket if you're doing 10 over, and that speedometers are pretty much universally adjusted to show you going faster than you are (usually about 2 mph)?

    Goddamn morons.

    It's been a strange day today. I've been productive, but then out of the blue I became super tired a couple of times and had dreams, such as of pretty guys degarmenting. I wonder if my body is shutting down so it can install new software of lifeways?

    No one likes a quitter, or a quiteer.

    Are you missing smoking?

    I quit 15 years ago and I never ever wanted a cigarette since.

    It's strange...
