    Tip of the Day

    Life is getting more complicated by the minute so here's the place to post advice on anything and everything (except spat's love life). Some tips from me: - Stay away from puddles that start half-way up a wall. - Never replace the Mascarpone in Tiramisu with salty cream cheese. - Don't use your fingertips to check whether a hotplate has been switched on. :'(

    "Ignore User" function

    I really like this option. I've blocked 5 people* so far and I'll be happy to block more if necessary. Let me explain: It's not that there's a lot of terribly awful peeps on here who offend me to the extreme or whose posts are completely worthless. It's just that some people's posts seem to bring out the worst in me and I know I'll pick a fight if I comment. Like in real life I don't want to mingle with some people and that's where the "ignore user" function comes in handy. Silly? Maybe. An overreaction? You bet. But it helps me enjoy this board. Do you ignore people? Would you ever? And if so, what would it take for somebody to land themselves on your ignore list? *) An updated list will be available upon request. Inquire within.

    Men are...

    1. Men are like Laxatives. They irritate the shit out of you. 2. Men are like Bananas. The older they get, the less firm they are. 3. Men are like Weather. Nothing can be done to change them.. 4. Men are like Blenders. You need One, but you're not quite sure why. 5.. Men are like Chocolate Bars. Sweet, smooth, & they usually head right for your hips. 6. Men are like Commercials. You can't believe a word they say. 7. Men are like Department Stores. Their clothes are always 1/2 off. 8. Men are like Government Bonds. They take soooooooo long to mature. 9. Men are like Mascara. They usually run at the first sign of emotion. 10. Men are like Popcorn. They satisfy you, but only for a little while. 11. Men are like Snowstorms. You never know when they're coming, how many inches you'll get or how long it will last. 12. Men are like Lava Lamps. Fun to look at, but not very bright. 13. Men are like Parking Spots. All the good ones are taken, the rest are handicapped. My apologies to the handicapped and all those smartasses lovely people who've seen it all before... My personal favorite is #11...

    Worst Joke Ever

    To fit the mood - some jokes that are guaranteed not to make you laugh. Whats black and white and black and white and black and white and black and white? What's green and sings? Two fish in a tank, one says to the other Two cows in a field. One says to the other,"Here, what do you think of this mad cow disease?" The other replies What's red and stands in the corner? What's white and can't climb trees? Why do cows have bells? There was ten cats in a basket. One jumped out. How many where left? What do you call a woman that can wash up, cook and vacuum the stairs at the same time? Your turn.

    Yep, it's that time of the year again - the third (and a half) week in February and we're here to applaud the best and most stylish choice in "a temporary manifestation or aspect of a continuing entity" (just ask Wiki what that's supposed to mean ). So please, name the "entity" whose "temporary manifastation" strikes you as most...well...striking. My choice for best avatar on an official Zep message board in the latter half of the first decade of the present millenium goes to: plasticbabyjesus Please try and post the avatar you'd like to nominate.... Just right-click on the avatar, go to "properties", copy the address and post it between [img ]...[ /img] tags. Cheers.

    Internet Safety

    No offense, but I really don't get you. Obviously Bonnie meant well. How you can take offense at his thread is completely beyond me - do you mind road safety tips as well? And as for asking you before addressing your children: Most kids are active on the web without any parental supervision. There's no way for people to "ask parental permission" before addressing those kids. I too would be happier if there were fewer bad news but this doesn't mean that people should put their head in the sand and ignore exisiting risks and dangers. I still hope that there is something like an internet community where people watch out for each other - and especially for underage members.

    Internet Safety

    I agree. One more thing: Please be aware that everything you post, every picture, every detail of your life, every PM, every webcam convo or chat on the web can be saved to somebody's computer and be posted again on a forum without your authorization . I'm not even talking about people hacking into accounts. If you upload private pictures to photo hosting sites, please remember that there's usually a "private" option which closes your account to casual visitors - same with profiles on myspace etc. Don't be paranoid but be aware that when you share something with one person on the web, you're potentially sharing it with the entire web community, and once things are posted on a forum there's no way to stop their proliferation. So if possible limit the number of people you're sharing information and/or pics with. Also keep in mind that while not everybody you talk to on the web is a potential predator or stalker, relationships can turn sour and some people are then happy to get back at a former friends or mates by posting embarrassing pics, msn conversations, PMs etc. on message boards.

    A question for those who are married

    Sounds like a "nice way" to tell you that she's not interested in you without hurting your feelings too much. Certainly a shared taste in music isn't a requirement for a good relationship - a shared sense of humour and some common basic values/the same basic attitude to life are much more important. My bf and me have some common ground when it comes to music but we've both attended gigs with mates instead of with each other - and headphones can be a blessing....As long as people ain't messianic or intolerant about their tastes in music I don't see a problem.

    Weird Animals

    And you thought you'd seen it all... The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unique method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out. Musk deer are artiodactyls of the genus Moschus, the only genus of family Moschidae. They are more primitive than the cervids, or true deer, in not having antlers or facial glands, in having only a single pair of teats, and in possessing a gall bladder, a caudal gland, a pair of tusk-like teeth and—of particular economic importance to humans—a musk gland. The Star-nosed Mole (Condylura cristata) is a small North American mole found in eastern Canada and the north-eastern United States. It is the only member of the tribe Condylurini and the genus Condylura. It lives in wet lowland areas and eats small invertebrates, aquatic insects, worms and molluscs. It is a good swimmer and can forage along the bottoms of streams and ponds. Like other moles, this animal digs shallow surface tunnels for foraging; often, these tunnels exit underwater. It is active day and night and remains active in winter, when it has been observed tunnelling through the snow and swimming in ice-covered streams. Little is known about the social behavior of the species, but it is suspected that it is colonial.

    The Undergarment Poll

    It's all for strictly scientific reasons. And of course yu're all welcome to post pics of your undergarment of choice. Ooops...just realized that you need to reply to both polls to make it work. Please vote "other" on the poll that doesn't concern you - otherwise the results will be complete nonsense. Sorry, t'is my first poll...

    Latest Purchase

    I finally got around to order the first two dvd sets of the not-quite-so-new-anymore Dr. Who series! And I already mentioned my new chocolate-flavoured body butter whose smell alone makes you gain five pounds in no time... Oh and...eh..I got the impression that there are simply not enough misspelled thread titles around anymore..so...ummm....that typo was intentional....

    1 in 4 Amercian Teenage Girls are Diseased

    I was talking about Spats not about normal people and about the fact that in view of the number of US girls with STDs maybe his "I can't date you cause you may have an STD" attitude isn't that laughable after all.

    It reminds me a bit of an oversized mite: Like it was hit by some magic magnification beam (and not only beaten with the ugly stick).

    I got some shoes I can't wear cause my feet constantly slip out of them while I walk. Only time I managed to walk in them was in the shop.

    *Sets timer*. I'm ready. I'd say Zep and underwear (or no underwear) go together a lot better than say Zep and the next POTUS...
