Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Just the forumer farts, man (Pbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbt)

So we have been counted and we have been opinionated, but what about forumer facts?

It is well known that a lot of people have met and made friends here. There have been love connections here. And we have, sadly, lost friends we met on here. So what I thought would be cool (and leave a much nicer impression than the opinion thread, I hope) would be if everybody came together and talked about how they met people they met, how people got together, something funny that happened, anything that you feel up to sharing that is factual.

Why? Well, I'm sitting in the middle of a freezing, crappy mall with no customers to speak of and 5 more hours left in my shift. So tell me a story!

    I thought the Opinion thread was very nice. Good thing I went to bed before it went to a very obvious and stupid place.

    I want to do with you

    One time Keith slept over at our house and while he was sleeping on the couch, Ben took a picture of him. It was pretty funny picture.

    The end.

    I've met a ton of people through PAXs and some local stuff.

    Just the other day, Langly threw a game night and I joined him, Bale, Avi and lostwords to play Betrayal at the House on the Hill and it was pretty fantastic.

    At PAX 08, I shared a room with Fishman, mully and Bombardier. Fishman and I shared a bed and that's probably the hottest person I've ever slept with.

    At PAX East last year, I showed up at a sports bar with my friend Bill and FencingSax. After getting a phone call from a group heading over, I told the guy at the bar that we had maybe 10 people total. He told us to grab a table upstairs. About 30 minutes later, we had around 30 people crammed in there, and it was great. Great became better when out of the blue Sheri showed up and stole the spotlight (attention whore ! <3)

    I would love to go to PAX, but I'm not sure when I'd be able to afford it. Plane tickets are expensive when you don't earn much. I'd love to meet some of you guys.

    I thought this was going to be an odd and interesting facts about yourself thread.

    I met Zonugal through work and he led me here and I met you all on.

    I also chatted with like two forum people last PAX.

    I shared drunken street meat with Tank, VoC, and Usagi at PAXEast and asked some random dude on the bus to play a Legend of Zelda tune on his guitar he was noodling around on.

    Pretty much all the FL forumers I've met have been rad, as was everyone at PAXEast.

    I've never been to a PAX, or any other sort of forum gathering, so I've never met any of you in person.

    So I'll give you real factual facts about myself instead.

    I got married last summer, my wife was pregnant shortly afterward. She had a miscarriage, which sucked. But now we are buying a house and are trying to get pregnant again, so hopefully everything will work out this time.

    I really hope you don't mind me asking, but how far along were you and your wife?

    We were at about 8 or 9 weeks.

    Thus far they are the only PAers I have met

    We ate the best burger in the world and mocked tyr's lack of Brit-savvy (including an inexplicable hole in his knowledge when it came to the Union Jack), they were good times
