    I know what you mean. I manage a community centre for the Deaf so my job is very hands on, we're having to everything by video call now and I'm sick of trying to explain to people why I can't just 'get the person to phone themselves'.

    So, what's new on here? Anything interesting happened? Any hatches, matches, or dispatches? Startling revelations? Personally I have come to the conclusion that both superman and captain America are about as much fun as a wet weekend in Skegness

    Wouldn't know about Superman and Captain America, but I can recommend The Old Guard. My family watched it a week ago (Netflix, I think) and we all thought it was quite good.

    Were the old threads 20 pages max? (10?) Can't believe we've been on 120 for 5 years.

    We used to shut them down at the 500 and then 1000 post mark, give or take, for software type reasons.

    So, when that wasn't necessary anymore, we stopped, and there's been less babbling too.

    I believe that Spacebattles still likes to shut down threads around the 1000 page mark for performance reasons, but it's not 100% necessary anymore. It used to be. Sufficient Velocity stopped doing that two versions of Xenforo ago, which I think was about the time this site switched to Xenforo. Questionable Questing is the only other Xenforo-powered message board I hang out on with any regularity, and that's only to get the rare lemon scene for a fanfic that is being posted to SB or SV if the clue me in that the version they posted is censored.

    Thanks! I wuv you Henkie.

    I just posted a thread there before so you might want to check it out. The topic is related to the song Paint It, Black. I knew where it was previously. I was just being a jerk as per usual.

    Also this random babbling thread is my type of party.

    I was in the grocery store yesterday and some poor sod went to answer his phone, but fumbled it and the screen smashed getting glass all over the floor.
    When the guy bent down, I noticed that he was right by an endcap with Halloween decorations for sale that happened to have "RIP" on them.
    I couldn't help but think it was appropriate, since his phone now Rests In Pieces.

    Funny coincidence, unless everything happens for a reason?

    Question for the community. I've been living with my mother since the end of January since she was scheduled for knee surgery. I was supposed to be able to move out in August, but due to COVID that plan has gone out the window as I'm not exactly apartment hunting.

    Today around lunch time she brought home from the grocery store some new pumpkin spice cookies that we hadn't seen before.
    We just finished off that decent-sized package of cookies after dinner.
    There weren't many left when we started dinner.

    Is that a real-life example of failing a Will Save?
    The Power of the cookies compelled us.
    Those cookies were intended to last a week!
