No offense, Stu, but your description of the 'ecosystem' here makes me feel somewhat ill. I wouldn't like to participate in such a system.


No offence taken smile.gif I was just speaking in general internet forum terms, not re UMSF specifically. I visit quite a few forums where the "school yard" behaviour I described is followed very closely, and yes, I find it a bit eeksome too. I thank my lucky stars every day that UMSF is, as I;ve said before, a peaceful "please leave your guns at the door" saloon in the Wild West of the internet. smile.gif

I'm good with it. I get to be the hood who hangs out in the smoking area all day, waiting till I turn 18 so I can run off & join the Army! (Well...Air Force... cool.gif )

I had a quite disturbing mental image reading that of you as Danny Zuko, singing "Summer Nights", in an UMSF production of "Grease"... ohmy.gif biggrin.gif

biggrin.gif ...Well, from the director's cut (by "cut" I mean what Doug might do to my throat after this...)

(F) Summer nights, black as molasses....
(M) Summer nights; take off your sunglass-es...
(F) Summer nights, what's that I see-ee?
(M) It's my tricked-out 20cm S-C-Teee!

(Both) Summer nights, starry & dark
We get weird looks from the folks in the park...

(Crowd) Wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-wa, wa!
Tell me more, tell me more
Can you see Ay-lee-uns?

...argh. That's enough! rolleyes.gif

Back in the days of the big dust storm last (earth) year it was a time of nail biting stress but also utter boredom. This led to a list of emails with reworked lyrics of famous songs. Maybe these propitiatory verses touched the martian eolian gods, maybe not, but it was a way to survive the dust storm here on Earth.

The temptation to re-write the lyrics for a certain US pop singers latest creation 'Womanizer' is exceedingly high...

Rover Driver, Rover-Rover Driver
You're a Rover Driver
Oh, Rover Driver, oh
You're a Rover Driver, baby

You, you, you are
You, you, you are
Rover Driver, Rover Driver, Rover Driver,

etc.

Next time you hear it on the radio or whatever, trust me, you'll be singing along now.

MERB Sol 833 will be forever be known as Jammerbugt (sp) ripple. They did not like my suggestion to call it the "Spears Ripple" (oops we did it again).
