We are just here, a comfortable hangout spot for comfort and reassurance as long as you need us. We are a table full of delicious pies at a bake sale. We're inviting, alluring, and delicious. But if someone comes over, tries some pie for a bit, and then goes, "OH SHIT, BACON!" and runs off to join the bacon table, we have no right to feel abandoned.

Maybe we should have made a bacon pie.


Bacon pie is an abomination. Censored

You and me both, brother. I didn't read half of his books, but enough to one day go "You stupid cow, just how dumb are you?" Gave all my books to a friend and tried to pretend it never happened. Ah, the stupidity of high-school....

EDIT: Apparently the answer to my rhetorical question is "very stupid"... didn't even see you said you read half of ONE of his books, not half of all his books. I'm slowly and inexorably edging towards the too stupid to live category Weeping

IT'S BECAUSE WE LOST CANTOR!!

It was fine when all we had to deal with was his Gwynes! That was as close to devote or religious the atheists here were getting.

So we should pledge ourselves to The Second Coming of HoC? Consider

Second? By now we're talking quadruple (at the very least) digits, Chas. (Well sorry, I can't replace Johnny, but I think I can handle subbing for Erx.)

No, that's not right. HoC never threatened to leave, he just told us he was leaving and why, once. Dude ain't been back... That's why it's gonna be hard to get him back. But Girly's giving it the old college try anyway. Prolly 'cause I like him a lot. Thumbsup

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Oh, Girly. Not sure whether to cry or laugh (at myself, derogatorily). I was chanelling Erx. I know Johnny hasn't been back. [Image: crying-smiley-sad-male-cry-tears-smiley-...medium.gif]

Ah, youth... I know too much... but never enough. Wink

At the ripe old age of 50 yo, the only thing I even consider now is the Prophet Hofmann's sacrament. Downside is it lasts for at least like 10-12 hours with a couple days recovery time. It's reserved for 3-4 day weekends. Wink

You never dropped acid? Fuck... and I thought I was straight. Shy

Interestingly, the psychiatric community has been using LSD in very diluted, very controlled treatment sessions and for the past thirty five years and have gathered some amazing data. Last I read about it, many physicians were questioned and speculated that for many of their patients, what would have taken the average 20 years of psychotherapy was cut to an average of 4 years with these "LSD guided sessions". A buddy of mine is a psychologist and he shoots me literature about things he knows I find interesting. He joked with me that he could score me some LSD but advised I might be beyond treatment. I'm still wondering if I'm supposed to laugh. Dodgy
