Here's a list of all the bugs in hawaii http://www.starrenvironmental.com/images/?o=insects


No, that thing's too three dimensional. This thing was flat.

I found that website last night. I started feeling like things were crawling on me, so I called off the search.


I know what you are talking about but can't remember what they are either. Used to see them when I lived in Kaneohe.

Probably not if it starts impacting performance. it would get locked and a new one started. its not so much the page loading, its the thread search index that gets obnoxious.

Can't say as I blame you. Just reading your description gives me the heebies. I think it's something in the larval phase. Scary bit there, is there's eggs somewhere.

No, but my youngest son is left handed. As a parent it has actually been really difficult to remember to show him things like how to hold a pencil with the correct hand. Even simple things like putting his cup on the table by his right hand instead of his left were just everyday mistakes for me for years. Getting better at it, but it's taken five years to get there!

In order:
  • a teacher
  • a web designer
  • a novelist
  • a sign language interpreter


In reality:
  • I realized that I generally don't like to deal with children that aren't my own, so I figured for the health of the human population I'd skip teacher. My husband has been a part-time college professor for the past 4-5 years now, so that somewhat counts, right?
  • I had actually been accepted to college, with a scholarship, in NY for web designer, but real life hit the fan a few months before I was supposed to go and I never ended up there. By the time I would have continued to pursue this one the bubble had burst and finding a job would've been near impossible. I did do some design work for a local business guy for a while some years back, but he was really inconsistent with paying me on time, and I decided it wasn't worth it anymore.
  • Novelist... well, I am a grammar nerd and I enjoy writing, but I don't think I've ever had enough inspiration to write a full story. I have written a few short stories but that's it.
  • I seriously considered sign language interpreter while taking advanced ASL classes in college. Two things held me back: (1) the college to get your certification would be a multiple-day-a-week drive of 2.5 hours each way (with young kids, that becomes difficult) and (2) I usually get petrified in front of large crowds (especially if I'm standing up.. not sure why that's different than sitting) and would make a terrible sign language interpreter!


I guess I'm not really close to doing anything I ever thought of... Smiley: lol In the end, I'm happy with where I am now, and that's the best thing to be.

One horse-sized duck. If it survived the ordeal, I'd gradually nurse it back to health. Then I'd make it a harness and saddle, and ride it around town. Following a sudden but inevitable betrayal, I'd be placing a large order for hoisin sauce and pancakes...

Hah! In a suprise twist no one saw coming, For the first time ever in the history of ever, I'm going to ask the admins and users questions of my own, thus violating the basic Principal of the ask an admin thread and voiding space time's warranty! So without further dew;

1. To all the forum users of the world, if someone were to wave the magic "poof, you're an admin for a day" wand at you, what would be the very first thing you would do as an admin, and why?

2. Would you rather fly in a helicopter, or fly in a jet fighter?

3. For the admins, What is the best thing, and the worst thing about being an admin, in your oppinion?

4. and finally, why doesn't anyone ever ask about the theoretically secret but deliberatly poorly hidden forums with the 500 irrgulear and disturbing shaped pinyata's wearing monicles tied over a vat of molten pudding that we put there specifically to get people to ask questions about?

1. Cackle maniacally before abusing my powers in as many ways as possible.

2. Helicopter and as a passenger. I have no desire to pilot either of those and you can take photos from a heli better than from a jet.

4. It's all rather self explanatory isn't it?

1. I would ask the forum to vote for a title for me since I could finally get one.

2. I don't like to fly but I walk really fast.

4. Because I was distracted by all the cheese I just bought for the cheese tray appetizer for Thanksgiving (which crazy me is still hosting despite moving 12/1)...

2. Helicopter. Then I would look for hot princesses in dresses and give the paparazzi a show.

1. Demand for a raise.
2.Helicopter more landing options.
4.It's just bad form to point out the Spanish pinata,s are wearing British eye wear whilst hanging over pudding that is not figgy in the least. Also we fear what's inside. (My guess is a horde of Mini-Rog's)

I would introduce a new mute option, where instead of disallowing posting, it would simply hide a person's posts from the entire community. Not like with below-filter ratings and the ignore list, where you can click to expand; I mean that nobody would have any idea that the muted posters were attempting to post at all. This way, from the muted person's standpoint, it would appear that they were still posting and engaging in conversation, but everyone around them was ignoring them. I would be greatly amused by this.

Or perhaps the ability to add users to a "blacklist"? Then you could pick and choose who you see and who you don't.

1.) Give everyone a title

2.) Jetpack FTW!

4.) I heard it was molten caramel, but w/e :P

There have been a couple times I've taken a short break. Once after the wholoe death threat thing back in the day, and a couple times in dealing with people that other than that moment I thought might have something to offer the forum so I didn't want to ban them just because I was pissed off. In hindsight, several of those would have been better served by a quicker removal.

1. Implement a series of filters that only get activated under certain rare conditions. They would effectively temporarily turn every post into one repetitive phrase. For example PUDDI PUDDI PUDDI PUDDI or CAW CAW CAW CAW.

2. A fighter helicopter... with jetpacks!

4. I've made a few posts in some imaginary forum places, but after a certain update a few years ago any posts made in those types of forums were invisible to us normal posters. So I guess I stopped looking for them.

How much do you think the separation of new games' databases and forums into individual sites has hurt the community on ZAM? Are people just not looking for third-party forums anymore because of better O-Boards?

1. To all the forum users of the world, if someone were to wave the magic "poof, you're an admin for a day" wand at you, what would be the very first thing you would do as an admin, and why?

2. Would you rather fly in a helicopter, or fly in a jet fighter?

3. For the admins, What is the best thing, and the worst thing about being an admin, in your oppinion?

4. and finally, why doesn't anyone ever ask about the theoretically secret but deliberatly poorly hidden forums with the 500 irrgulear and disturbing shaped pinyata's wearing monicles tied over a vat of molten pudding that we put there specifically to get people to ask questions about?


1. Beer, many hopefully. Then fall asleep at the computer and claim I'm working.

2. Helicopter, I'd throw up in the other one.

4. Hippies.

It's actually a trick. There are really 12 hotdogs in the package, but 2 of them are made of dark matter, and thus inobservable by current scientific detection methods. Technically they are in their own pocket universe, caused mainly by the materials from whence they were created. Don't ask, you don't really want to know, and the hot Dog gestapo would have to "dissappear" you if you knew the horrible secret.


I heard that this theory was the reason Peter Higgs went into Physics. Luckily he's kept his real intentions under wraps and they aren't on to him yet.

Obviously I would change your title to "Property of Torrence". After that I would collect "the best of" all the idiotic posts and put them into one forum for everyone's amusement.

I think that's a lot of it. At some point the game companies decided to foster community, and they've done a halfway decent job of it. Has it hurt us? I dunno, we still tend to segregate by game, regardless.

There are really 3 main culprits for the population decline from our peak. The rise of at work webpage blocking software cut our numbers by at least a third. That and facebook and other large agregate social media sites took their toll. The resonance from the origional site sale lost us another huge chunk of people who will never likely return. We are growing, and while the Official boards are generally more popular when they exist, we retain a certain status as being somewhere that people can go to complain about / at the official boards without fear of reprisals.

You'd just use them for some sort of doomsday machine.


And on a sidenote, how many rateups have I gotten for making you that avatar a couple years ago? Smiley: tongue

1. After the maniacal cackling? I'd simply wait for an opportunity to ban someone. I'm sure a spammer would show up sometime that day and I've always wanted to ban one.

2. Jet fighter. With my fear of flying, getting into a helicopter means I'm being evacuated from somewhere awful. Flying in a jet fighter, however, is far too cool an opportunity for me to pass up, so I'd tell my fear to shut up and suck it up.

4. I believe that the answers you seek lie here.

Am I too late?

What would you do with a surprise baby?

I'd get rid of the books, movies, TV and anime forum and fold that back into the OOT. Then I'd write a script to revolve Uglysasquatch's avatar once a day...through all of Kirby's avatars.

JET RIDE. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAHHHHHHHH

Shh. It's my own little world I hide out in when I'm embarrassed.

And I'd ride the helicopter as I don't like the idea of wearing puke.

Fold all the off-topic stuff back into =4. Between all of them, you'd almost have one active forums where the threads changed from day to day.

That's why I said to merge it all back into =4 and not all in =28.

Like the good ole days when =4 was all we had and all we needed. How many forums that get two threads a day do we need?

I'd be in favor of this. It might balance out the politics talk a little.

If someone hadn't gone and started the omnibus thread craze you might still be seeing three threads/day/forum.
