|Thank you all for the Birfday wishes. I'm going to have a big emotional blurt:|
The interwebs sure has changed things. I now have friends that I haven't physically met. It's nice, because you can see the essence of people, without getting hung up on age.. appearance, etc. You'd think that soon, when everyone can speak to everyone else, we might actually give up disliking folks based on say-so.
It's a privilege to chat with the minds that are here. Some folks are talented scientists, some folks are a lot of fun and some folks are both. Then there's me. I just post a lot of nonsense, but folks put up with it anyways. Thanks.
We often look at UD and highlight we do science and they don't. But the differences go way beyond that. Here, anyone can start a thread, there is no 'pre-moderation", we celebrate Burfdays, LOLCATS, music, films... it's a community in the real sense of the word.
Thanks for having me.
HA HA THIS IS YOU TOO:
No, that's me.
You noodle. (JK, Arden. *Shimmy*)
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
