    I moved my mum into a nursing house last week: sorted clothes with her, put all her stuff into place, built a shelf and moved stuff around the room. All with a mask on (the so called paper mask). For a whole beeping day of ca. 30 Celsius heat. You can get used to it and forget you have it on your face - I realized it as I was already driving. But maybe you have to get used to it, the first few times were indeed a bit weird. There are people with problems that cannot wear a mask, but the rest is just whining.

    It's actually not painful at all! I hardly notice my mask any more unless my nose itches or something.

    Sorry you had such a bad experience. And good on you for being an out-and-proud bisexual. As to the question above, I'm a female gamer so, yeah, that's another surefire method to meet idiots online. And just for the record, I don't think anything like this is likely to happen here (we're small, quiet and friendly, fortunately) but I do have a banstick and neither me nor any other mod is going to hesitate should anyone have the bright idea to pull a stunt like that. Everyone should feel safe and welcome on this forum.

    In my opinion, she is - Sherlock flatlined. Since I don't want to lead this to threadjacking, I'll leave it at that, here at least. But please do make your own statement about her guilt or lack thereof in the correct thread, @SherLOCKED123, and I'll be happy to dive in again (as will @Carol the Dabbler, I bet ). Once more unto the breach!

    That makes perfect sense to me. When you're regularly in touch with someone, you have a lot of day-to-day stuff to talk about -- but when you haven't heard from each other in twenty years or so, it's almost like meeting a stranger. If you stay in touch long enough to get re-acquainted, it's OK, but meanwhile you're in a very awkward situation. I don't think your friends meant to make you uncomfortable. They probably thought that if you gradually got back in touch with just a few people that you'd enjoy it. But to them, ten is a few, whereas to you it's a horde. You have my sympathy, but I have no idea what you can do, other than what you're doing. Maybe once people are able to return to their normal life, they'll have neither the time nor the inclination for all those chats. At least you can hope! That is indeed sad. Do you phone your mother regularly? If not, that might help. I'm just glad that this virus didn't arise until after my mother had lived out her life and passed on.

    No you are not. I actually felt weird when it was very active during season 4. Nobody had time to listen/read to one another. I couldn't catch up with the post and gave up all together, I think it's more fun to actually read and respond to replies instead of just throw something at it and go. Anyway, I felt like a stranger going to party that I don't want to, felt alone and wanted to just sit at the corner and play with the dog. Imho, for a show that only has 13 episodes in the span of yearssssss, I think we are doing quite well. Heh... But yes of course, if we have new members with fresh eyes and takes, it's fun, and I'm all for resurrecting old threads, I think I'm guilty of some. Not sure why other forums are against it, who knows, maybe their show is not only 13 episodes for span of yearsssss???

    I still wonder what goes on in the minds of the people writing those messages. Probably nothing... Because like Sherlock said: people are idiots.

    T.o.b.y I agree, this is a lovely site and I am confident nothing toxic ever happens on here. I've just decided to ignore the haters and move on, because they are not worth my time.

    The old forum software (before 2018) limited searches to words of four letters or more, so I assume the new (since 2018) has similar rules. Anyhow, I searched on the word "just" and came up with no hits whatsoever -- which is utterly ridiculous. I thought maybe the lower limit had been upped to five letters, and tested that hypothesis by searching on "make" -- which returned thousands of hits. So now I'm wondering if it's something to do with my set-up or if it's a general weirdity. I'm gonna search on some more words that ought to be common here, and post my results below. Would some of you please be so kind as to try the same searches and post your results? Thank you! just -- 0 make -- 9,972 John -- 14,340 must -- 0 bust -- 116 jest -- 22 It's not just four-letter words, either. The other day I was looking for a post that I thought contained the word "mystic," and a search did bring up half a dozen hits -- but not this one, which does indeed contain the word (albeit inside a spoiler box). There have been other times as well, when I've been sure that the post I was looking for contained a certain word, but a search failed to bring it up. If any of you have had similar problems, please post them in this thread. Maybe we'll start to see a pattern. Thanks!

    I know a little of how you feel. I started watching the show in 2012, but I didn’t join the forum (or fandom) until just after S4 had finished airing, so I only caught the tail-end of fandom heyday. I’m a little bummed for missing out.

    Maybe, maybe not -- but we haven't heard *your* opinions yet! As Caya says, please feel free to post your comments, questions, etc. on any thread where it's relevant. And if you don't see a relevant thread, then feel quite free to create one (by clicking "start new topic" or "create topic"). Consider this: The forum came online shortly after Series 2 was aired in the UK, at which point the first few members discussed all of Series 1 and 2. When Series 3 aired, a lot of new people joined to discuss the new episodes, but they also added their thoughts on the first two series. And the same thing happened when Abominable Bride aired, ditto Series 4. Plus a lot of people joined between series. So just because there hasn't been a new series lately doesn't mean you aren't allowed to have your say about the entire show! Furthermore, unless a thread is short, you needn't feel obliged to read all the prior posts before posting there. You may accidentally repeat what someone else has already posted, but so what? Goodness knows I've even repeated *myself* now and then. The point is, other than possibly a few people with photographic memories, *nobody* remembers everything that's ever been posted here.

    Yeah, but all that grousing about "I can't get oxygen behind this mask" and whatnot ... I mean, surgeons wear those for hours at a time and have done for ages, and I agree they can be difficult to deal with, but I still rather doubt that they're all zombies because they've suffocated at some point. Worst that can happen with a mask is that you look slightly goofy and feel slightly uncomfortable. I'd take that over possibly infecting someone unwittingly any day, but apparently some people were never taught manners.

    Let me see if I could help: pun, just, no, red, god, 243, the, his, last = 0 nope, sherly, wikipedia, plum pudding, cake, pant, coat, dear = many many hits hudder = 2, pretty sure it was mentioned much more jim = 0, there should be at least one Jim from IT floccinaucinihilipilification: yes it has the perfect amount of hits I think you probably right, words that are to short (three letters) are tend to be ignored, the ignored four letter words perhaps because there are too many of them everyone, and the ones that show up has reasonable amount (not too many) although I'm surprised because I think I talk about cake at least 13017472 times. To conclude, I think the search engine is totally and utterly inept, because we all know there is at least ONE Jim from IT!

    I didn't understand until I saw the news. Anyway, a rant that is quite political. I'm appalled of the actual idiocy level of human, this pandemic opens my eyes to confirm that even though I have very low expectation, I'm still surprised. How hard is it to wear a f*&@(^&*@$& mask when you are out in public?! Do they know how painful it is for the health workers to wear it every hours every day?? I mean FFS, if those idiots only harm themselves, by all means, I fully support Darwin's theory and it would be good riddance, the earth is over populated! But when your idiotic actions could harm others, they can regulate you. Just like smoking. How many unnecessary tragic deaths of those being attacked from simply asking you to put a mask in their property/work place needed? I blame the upper idiots who put in those idea, that choosing not to wear mask is f(*^^@**%&%@ right. Argh! DAMN MY LEG!

    I'm proud to say that it took me a mere three hours to get that joke. In all fairness, though, it's an extremely complicated joke for a one-liner. Just in case it has anyone else stumped, here's a far-too-thorough explanation: If the text is invisible when you open that box, all you need to do is highlight the contents of the box, as though you were planning to copy them, and -- just like magic ink -- the text will become visible.

    Don't worry about it, it's opinion, we are free to ramble. God knows I rambled a lot about movies, we have a thread for movie review (I think it's called Recently Watched Movies) but review of course includes rambling too. I remember I got so annoyed that I came back to ramble even more about the same movie back then, regardless whether I had audience or not, just need to get it out, like a crazy person, like an old man sending the soup back in the deli. It's 47 Meters Down, actually writing the tittle raises my blood pressure a little bit too much, even now . I have never seen you worked up this way

    Mercifully!!! Those days were just a tad *too* active for my taste. I enjoy being able to pay real attention to each new post and respond to a significant percentage of them -- and that simply wasn't possible when there were so many new posts per day.

    Few things make me smile in politics these days, but this one got a chuckle out of me: Our German forum members can probably explain it better, but what she's holding here is a Maß, holding a liter (a bit more than two pints), which is the traditional way to drink beer, especially in Bavaria and/or at the Oktoberfest.

    That's mostly my worldview as well (even though I am currently obsessed with a Muscial which mocks this very notion, namely Heathers...) but still, not sending hateful messages is always an option, no matter how hard your life is. Or, to quote another musical: "I was given bad choices, sure, but I could have said no!"

    Indeed they are. Like always, Sherlock is right! As for what goes on inside their heads, we can only assume they had a traumatic life or an abusive childhood, becuase people who are that messed up aren't naturally that way, something has usually made them like that.

    Sounds like a solid strategy! I wouldn't say nothing toxic ever happens at all... We've had difficulties here and there. But not on the level you describe for sure. By internet standards, this is indeed a very relaxed place imo. 😄

    Exactly. I am not sorry that I have little to no patience for people who put others in harmful situation. You would think that during worldwide pandemic, people die doing their jobs, the very least you could do is to put a mask on. I think there is seriously something missing about lacking of perspectives in here, people taking things for granted, especially idiots who live in their own close-minded world. There are people with minimum wage doing more than usual because they are essential, yet they have to put up all this shit, there are many people who don't actually have access to sanitation in this time, there are people who never experience actual 'personal freedom' of safety, comfort, and live in fear daily because of wars and human right violation, and yet here these people are b*tching about wearing mask and personal freedom. It doesn't help that idiot is their role model. Yes. I would say the concept is pretty similar, and simple enough. if we want to be part of society, we should try not to harm others. If we want to go somewhere, we should observe what they are practising, if not, get out. The same principles work for assaults and murders. We won't let them just because it's probably not worth it to confront them. The same effort should be required from everyone if everyone wants it to get better. The comparison might seem laughable, so does the comparison of what kind of effort actually required from this people, which seems too much to ask. We want everything to open, we want the economy to get back to normal, we want the curve to flatten, what??? wearing a mask you said, NO, it's too much! I'd rather attend rallies and parties.

    I don't think it bothers to recognize me, it's probably just post and go and the picture will be there forever. You can post obscene photo anonymously (ehm,, why you want to know this ) but I assume unless you search for it, you have to be the one who put it there to know the uploaded picture code. Tinypic didn't require log in as well, and I believe I posted picture on Imgur without log-in too. Flickr, on the other hand, requires log-in. I remember it was decent, used to put some artwork hobby pictures (somehow there is a community without needing to join, if you post often enough and they like your work, you can gain...eh.. I don't remember what is the term actually, but they follow to know your updates, I believe it's not follower, this is time before twitter. Eventually I kept seeing same people appear to comment on my work, something like that, chatting up and share stuff. I don't think there is some kind of hashtag as well, but it's been loooong time. But it was a nice constructive place about hobby and you communicate mostly through pictures). I can see it fine. I think beside the problems I had sometimes ago, now mostly I'm able to see Caya's pictures, which means there is no problem with Imgur as well. But maybe I'm not here often enough lately for enough sample experience.

    I don't care too much for survivalist shows generally, but I really like "Alone" on the History Channel. "It follows the self-documented daily struggles of 10 individuals as they survive in the wilderness for as long as possible using a limited amount of survival equipment. With the exception of medical check-ins, the participants are isolated from each other and all other humans. They may "tap out" at any time, or be removed due to failing a medical check-in. The contestant who remains the longest wins a grand prize of $500,000." For me it's quite a relaxing show, not too gimmicky, and it's interesting to see how they handle the isolation and adapt their survival techniques to their surroundings. The current season (7) is running now, and previous seasons are up on Netflix, Hulu, and Prime (I think). Probably elsewhere as well.

    The first one is not for soup, I love it more for hygienic purpose, the squirrel legs enable it to sit on the counter without the part touching the food touches the counter, if it makes sense. Because sometimes in between cooking of if you are unsure that the counter is food-grade clean, you would want to rest the cooking spoon on something instead of directly at the counter. The nessie laddle basically, perhaps, trying to copy the squirrel but it doesn't work because the legs touch the food as well. So except from being able to stand on its own, you might as well put it on the counter. Again, from hygienic POV. Offer them two bottle of pills and tell them they have to choose one to make you do your presentation. Make sure the contain is enough for everyone.

    I feel called out. However, I can't stand the allure of ranting about music, because I caught a snippet of Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town the other day, and may Kenny Rogers rest in peace but that song drives me up the [censored] wall. So the singer is a paralyzed war veteran and his wife leaves him alone in the evening (regularly, one assumes since he states he's heard the door slam a hundred times before) and, after having gussied up, goes to town (in more than one sense, he implies). He states he'd kill her for that if he could. Did it ever occur to that curmudgeonly [censored] that she's not living it up but picking up the extra the only way she can, because he's disabled and she has to care for him the rest of the day? Does he think money for food, rent and medical care grows on trees or something? What a wonderful way to show her his gratitude for all her hard work in caring for him *and* keeping the household running, by fantasizing about shooting her. tl;dr: I hate that bloody song.
