    Derailing. (Volume II)

    Since we get "corrected" for derailing threads, I figure we should have one that is completely dedicated to derailing.

    So go ahead and make a great argument that has nothing to do with the previous poster. I like derailiation because it's necessary to my post count and I love to go into a totally serious argument where I have no idea what the people are talking about and say "I like turtles"








    I give this thread an hour.

    Well, looks like your hour turned into a year and a half.

    And yeah, it's just what Wayne feared, getting turned into a "Derailing Part 2" thread.
    Ello.

    Cool

    I so disagree with you and think the best thing for a headache is a dark room with proper ventilation and a soft place to lay down. Works every time for me. But....if the headache continues I think it's best to consult a doctor and get it checked out. Good luck.

    Ooh, finally I can be on page 1 of Derailing! Volume 2? I never heard of such a thing!

    So... who else is going to wrap presents for a family pet and put it under the Christmas tree?

    *phew* Derail achieved in 2 paragraphs!

    LOL, I just wrapped their present (1 each) and addressed it "From Santa". My sister and her boyfriend think I'm totally weird...

    I would like to thank the academy.... and Silver King... for this honor. It's not a lot of threads that make it to the 2.0 phase... it takes a lot of hard work. I'd like to thank Wayne, of course, everybody, give it up for Wayne! And of course, we've got Benbradley over there in his suit, talkin' about the Singularity to Gwyneth - isn't he lovely? We miss Sweetleaf... she's off in New Zealand buying a new house of course, and there are just so many to thank! I'm sure I've forgotten somebody, and of course, I'm just one derailer amongst many! Derailers come and derailers go, of course, but I like to think we've all got a little derailer in us somewhere... and I'm not talkin' about the muppet.....

    It feels like Graduation Night all over again! Except this time I'm starting to get drunk...

    I'm on my 4th drink, and still not drunk... sigh. What happened to the good old days of powering down 3 vodkas and stumbling into walls?

    *wistful*

    Greetings, Derailers. Love what you've done with the place. Are those new curtains?

And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece of a big, big universe and that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They're gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub." ~ Beasts of the Southern Wild

    You could always say that a mouse drug a potato chip into the wall and left it near an electrical outlet, but quaaludes work too.
