Okay, okay, I've entered!!

Hm, I guess I need to explain some stuff about mine, since it refers only partially to my known forum personality.

Some background!

So, back in the first half of the 20th century, there was this psychoanalyst named Wilhelm Reich. He purportedly discovered a "universal life energy" that he named Orgone, and which is suppusedly known to shamans and mystics worldwide under different names... He also did "research" into "free energy theories" and stuff like that... 8-}
Now, according to this "theory", there are two kinds of Orgone, namely positive (healthy lifeforce) and negative, "deadly" Orgone, which - who would have guessed? - is directly associated with modern technology, especially radar installations and nuclear power plants. As you may imagine, this aspect of the "theory" makes it beautifully accessible to the eco-lunatic fringe, who obviously aren't happy enough with all the scientifically verified ways we are deteriorating our biosphere, and thus come up with wacky conspiracy theories like Chemtrails, Electrosmog and that the HAARP station in Alaska does everything from creating Earthquakes to controlling minds. :-T

Now, these believers actually spend money to create a stuff they call orgonite, which seems to be some baked glump mixed out of epoxy resin, metal filings, crushed crystals... Stuffed in casings, they come in three handy sizes: "Towerbusters" are maybe 50 grams, and enough to "bust" (which seems to mean, recreate the Orgone balance by counteracting the deadly O...) a single cell phone tower. To go larger, you create "Holy Hand Grenades" (I am not kidding you... :|), and if you wanna go really big, you fill large metal tubes (weighing like 30 - 40 kg in the end) to create ChemBusters/Cloudbusters...
As soon as they have a carload of their Orgone bombs, they burn a lot of dead Devonian plant matter to travel around the country and "bust sites".

So...

Two weeks ago, we had a massive laugh here at the observatory. Someone who was a friend or colleague of one of the scientists had stumbled (somehow?) on a forum post... a forum post which I have now actually found in ENGLISH on another site!!! Just go all the way to the bottom of the first long post...

Our observatory was busted!!! =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) =)) =))

These people seriously believe our radio telescope station (part of the LOFAR Low Frequency Array) is actually an emitter and part of a huge weather control network established by sinister government forces. :ymdevil: Our station is secret, hidden in the woods, everything is underground, calling it an observatory is only a cover...

%-(

In other words, tummy-shakingly ridonkulous!!!

Anyway, I've now been telling people I'm an agent of the New World Order and they had better be friendly with me or else... because our Empire WILL rise!! B-)

he says your place was his biggest bust yet, using the most amount of orgonite to balance out a site :3.

Vote for me! i'am a cute lynx kitteh! I've been having a cleavage drought! [shush LSD!]

I lost my first love and my 2nd pointed and laughed as she shattered my heart into a billion billion pieces! Evilly! And reminds me often of it to open the wound anew! Lets not forget she *checks first for reference* drove me away from the forum, never returning!

may i say that despite me knowing better than to post this, it seems a good idea to do so right now. And i am VERY VERY dead tired. so tired i cant listen to youtube videos and music and cant keep my eyes open and my body literally feels drop dead lethargic.

I'am just doing this as making light of my horrible suffering helps me heal from the horrible trauma wrought on me by my 2nd

Which will be nothing compared to the trauma your second will inflict on you by paddling when she reads this. ;))

I have a feeling there's going to be some sort of tie between entries.

Eh, I find it hard to be creative for myself. Other people, sure. Me? Not so much.

i can only joke about it cause i've healed and moved past it. The people who struck at you, did so cause of other underlying reasons, like loss of power and stupidity of self-righteous opinions. No one on the forum dislikes or judges you Chesher, *serious look at forum* well they shouldnt or they're goddamned fools.

What happened with us, was gonna happen cause we couldnt sustain the relationship without meeting. And that was not going to be possible for YEARS. Many years. We would have just eventually run dry on the pain of separation and contact. We would have eventually started resenting ourselves and each other and eventually would have started hating each other with the separation feeding the pain and hungering the love. Atleast this way we can be awkwardly communicative with each other without going into a frothng frenzy's.

You and Xar meeting was the happiest i've been in my life. [cpet for when, ah nevermind.. TMI, caught myself there]. Sincerely. It made me feel better and whole again. Myself again.

I'll avoid doing it though if it hurts you.

Everyone here love's you *vicious stare at forum to contraries*. Maybe they havent done a good job *indicative eyes* and should try to express appreciation of our hug mod in the Jabber thread.

INFACT. from what i see. We've been pretty unexpressive of our appreciation for hte mod team as a whole and WHAT i also see *intense stare at forum* its been taking its toll on them, with more than one now expressing it and the others being seemingly effected by it if not expressing or seeing it yet.

MOD APPRECIATION TIME.

also, voting here. I think i know who to vote for. Some of them really appealed to me even if i loved the vast majority

I don't see how anyone could be mad at Teacher. I just don't get it. All the mods are cool. They stay on top of things the best they can and don't abuse the power like they could. There's a lot of respect in that. :ymhug: :ymhug: :ymhug: :ymhug:
