I know humility is a virtue but....in Championship Manager 4.....

1 German Division 2 Championship (1.FC Koeln)
4 German Division 1 Championships (1.FC Koeln)
1 German League Cup

After my 5th season I decided to leave so I am now in my first season with Monchengladbach, embroiled in a title battle with FC Bayern.

I am awesome!

Postolowka

P.S. I have an eight-page essay on Judaism due tomorrow (almost done) and a three-hour history final tomorrow; two essays, a map, and four short answer questions. Is it too much to hope for the Second Coming between now and then....honestly?? Haha.

Never buy a computer monitor from walmart. Especially if the box has already been opened and it has been retaped in a very crappy manner. Yes, I really am that dumb. :'(  On the plus side, I am nearing the point of no return. This Friday (the 13th! mwahaha! I was born on friday the 13th, and lived at 1313 jefferson ave... explains some stuff, doesn't it?  anyway...)  I'll be only two years away from the magical 30. As everyone knows, you can't trust anyone over 30. I've heard no less a revered man than charlton heston say so (even though he was way over 30 when he said it, but I will ignore that part)!  So then, if you can't trust anyone over 30, and you are 30, then you can't trust yourself. What a wonderful time that will be! I will have to do a long search again to find out who I can trust... the Dalai Lama? The Buddha? The Yeshua? The Dawkins? Nah, I need to find some revered woman... I can tolerate disagreements with them better and yield to their positions easier... why oh why isn't there a Byzantine Emperess these days!? Anyway...

But if you can't trust people over 30, and he was over 30 when he said it, then you can't trust what he says, therefore you can trust what he says, which in this case was not to trust anyone over 30, therefore you really can't trust what Mr. Heston says.....or can you??

I think there is a separate color, for each range of amount of posts. For example one color for Newbie interval, another for Junior Members, etc.

It is a great place to visit! Besides all that you mentioned, there's the Malbus 'chapel', the WWII museum ships, the great food...New Orleans is not even 2.5 hours away for a day trip...the only ROCOR church in AL is there...and that priest-guy could be there in about three hours. Close enough for that priest guy to get back if he needs to, but far enough away that the priest-guy won't have an 'unfair home field advantage' in any contests of skill or whatever.

It's a paradox that cannot be investigated using fallible human reason Wink Sort of like Chuck Norris.

We're having steak tonight. Any opinions on what veggie we should have? I think we have green beans, corn, and peas. I'm starting dinner in about 10 minutes (in time to watch Myth Busters)... I guess I should have posted this earlier.

Corn or carrots are probably the best vegetable with beef. Of course you do realize you are evil to make us think of steak on a Wednesday, right? :-p

Carrots are definately a good side-dish to beef.  I was always a personal fan of it. 

Why not just the staples though.  Meat and potatoes? 

Postolowka,

I think i've posted close to 100 posts just on this thread.  Just something to look forward to!   Wink Grin

So in case the site crashes and etc. 

I thought that it would be fitting if my last post were here. 

You guys are all swell palls and I hope you all do well until we rebuild the web-site! 

Not that i'm trying to jinx it or anything.   Grin

Thanks, Fr!
Here is a great one if you like word play:


Here is the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational which once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Here are the 2005 winners:

Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time

Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an a@@..etc. (oops!)

Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realise it was your money to start with

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly

Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future

Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting *ahem*

Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high

Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it
 
Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late

Hipatitis: Terminal coolness

Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease (This one got extra credit.)

Karmageddon: It's like when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes -- right? -- and then, like, the Earth explodes and it's, like, a serious bummer

Decafalon (n.): The gruelling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you

Glibido: All talk and no action.

Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly
 
Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web

Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out

Caterpallor (n.): The colour you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.

I'm getting farther into geezer hood, I thought we had a forum section for Orthodox/Catholic and Heretic Sports...or was it that cheap tequila I consumed accidently on purpose ?

I certainly agree that you should drink something good, but only 50ml??? If that's all you're going to drink, you might as well drink water as it'll have the same affect Wink

Well, at about $2.50 a bottle I guess you could get a few of them and chug em down. Besides, I'd rather have a little bit of something good than a lotta bit of something bad. Then again I don't like Tequila, Jack Daniels, beer and lots of other stuff, so maybe I'm just picky.

Of all the disturbing things you've written, Asteriktos, the above is perhaps the most disturbing of all.

Lol, well I certainly tried to like it. In fact, in high school beer was the drink of choice, though that was because it was a social thing, not because I actually liked it. My grandfather used to buy a beer called Milwaukee's Best. I think the one sip of that beer that I had might have permanently scarred my taste buds.

that's just because you've never had Milwaukee's Best Light.   Wink Grin Grin

P.S. I love the cheepo beers they're usually the funnest and you eventually get a taste for it.  Nothing beats a nice Warsteiner though.   Grin

Perhaps you need to take another look at our Synod of Alcohol, which is on this thread.  It might enlighten you about our stance on alcoholic beverages.
