Re: La Bonet version soixante-neuf!
As is customary, here are some interesting questions to kick us off.

Do you pronounce it BONNET, BONNAY or BONNIE? Or do you have another idea? I'm a BONNAY man these days.

What are your plans for this weekend?

It's my birthday next week. How old do you think I am?

What's the worst sickness or accident you've ever had?

Can you come up with a solution for Dev's special characters problem?

1) Bone-aye
2) Forum skinning Sad It's looking a lot better at the moment.
3) How the hell am I supposed to know? Tongue
4) Losing my appendix. I miss that little guy. Alternatively, getting kicked in the knob by a pony was pretty painful too Sad
5) Yes, here's the e you wanted Dev, and a few more: é ú í ó á €. Just copy and paste them whenever you need them Cheesy

p.s. How do you know how sticky a half-day old turd would be? Perhaps there's some floating in your yellow water...

I didn't realise turds were sticky, to tell the truth.

Here's a version of the Blah that reminds me of this one:

Ah, the old Shining Online style phpBB. I seem to recall the one before that was black, and someone hotlinked the post images. Nothing changes, as someone was recently hotlinking the "Level l33t" userbar for his forum too. Not to mention that lovely lass on myspace nicking the ICQ icon.

I might steal that button layout.

I like that saying so much I'm going to steal it.

I'm now trying to think of a good English turn of phrase, but can't. Can anyone else?

You're too funny to be English.

These are pretty funny:

Nothing like a game of gutterturd at lunch time to make sure your enemies wind up with the brown sticky end of the stick.

The alt key and number pad combination would be best for Devlyns little problem. 

Losing my ability to be a lying, manipulative bastard when I saw some kittens playing once.

This weekend I plan to move it move it.

I think you're as old as the mists of time.

I pronounce it with the stressed E and silent T.

I kinda like the new layout. Not so much the icons on the topics area but the layout brings back memories o' bratwurst.

The forum isn't really finished yet, but the colours are quite similar to the old "Shining Online" theme we did so many years ago. Perhaps I'll add a history of blah to the main site history Wink

Two worms come out of the woodwork - the redesign is working already!

Those analogies are awesome, Elv - my favourite is the one about the hummingbirds, I think. I honestly wish I were as inventive as some of those kids, dagnabbit.

Here are some genuine answers from mock exam papers I marked once:

Give two ways in which the last sentence is linked to the first paragraph beginning "Face it, Dad, Romans are not cool"

A: beacause at the beggining they were like Oh I Hate romans and Now their like Yay romans!

In the first paragraph of the text, what does the use of the words probably, likely, yet and the phrase would be expected suggest?
A: that their not sure but they Have quite a good bet on it.

Q: Find and copy one abbreviation.
A: Magpies.

Apologies if I've posted these before, I just thought they were awesome enough to share again.

Perhaps writing the history of Blah could be a collaborative effort? I don't remember enough of it to write it, and the same probably goes for Dev due to his frequent Wheel of Morality posts Tongue

This board feels like home already, and with the new icons and everything, it's the best-looking Blah yet. Good work bruv!

Re: La Bonet version soixante-neuf!
lol did bratwurst spam get converted to bratwurst or is someone screwing with me? Also found a pretty nifty little story...

A baby girl is mysteriously dropped off at an orphanage in Cleveland in 1945. "Jane" grows up lonely and dejected, not knowing who her parents are, until one day in 1963 she is strangely attracted to a drifter. She falls in love with him, but just when things are looking up for Jane a series of disasters strikes: First, she becomes pregnant by the drifter, who then disappears. Second, during the complicated delivery doctors discover that Jane has both sets of sex organs, and to save her life, they most surgically convert "her" to a "him." Finally, a mysterious stranger kidnaps her baby from the delivery room.

Reeling from these disasters, rejected from society, scorned by fate,"he"becomes a drunkard and a drifter. Not only has Jane lost her parents and her lover, but he has lost his only child as well. Years later, in1970, he stumbles into a lonely bar, called Pop's Place, and spills out his pathetic story to an elderly bartender. The sympathetic bartender offers the drifter the chance to avenge the stranger who left her pregnant and abandoned, on the condition that he join the"time traveler corps." Both of them enter a time machine and the bartender drops the drifter off in 1963. The drifter is strangely attracted to a young orphan girl, who subsequently becomes pregnant.

The bartender then goes forward 9 months, kidnaps the baby girl from the hospital, and drops the baby off in an orphanage back in 1945. Then the bartender drops off the thoroughly confused drifter in 1985, to enlist in the time traveler corps. The drifter eventually gets his life together and becomes respected and elderly member of the time traveler corps, and then disguises himself as a bartender and has his most difficult mission: a date with destiny, meeting a certain drifter at Pop's Place in 1970.

DDDDD    EEEEE  RRRRR     PPPPP   !!!
D        D   E          R      R     P       P  !!!
D        D   EEEE    RRRRR     PPPPP   !!!

Yep, the word "spam" is automatically changed to "bratwurst", because it seemed funny at the time. Speaking of bratwurst, maybe Shernal will appear from nowhere too. And let's not forget...

ALBERTO!

That story hurt my brain. At least, what's left of it.
