Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

No way, man, I have standards.

@  RichardT1977 : (18 January 2017 - 04:12 PM)

Or do a crossover where you team up with McDonaldzilla.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 04:10 PM)

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

That's why we're going to bomb the Breach.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:58 PM)

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 January 2017 - 02:33 PM)

I've found that subway's food tends to be...

@  Benbot : (18 January 2017 - 02:13 PM)

Subway: Eat Flesh.

Nothings as lovin' as human flesh in the oven!

@  The Doctor Who : (18 January 2017 - 07:28 AM)

I've only had it once, but that was because I forgot to disable adblock on my tablet. Haven't had it otherwise.

@  Jalaguy : (18 January 2017 - 03:52 AM)

I only ever got it once, on the one PC, for whatever reason...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 09:42 PM)

Not getting the Adblocker message anymore.

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:54 PM)

Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:53 PM)

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:14 PM)

i probly shouldnt have said that...

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:13 PM)

robobwang wasnt in that!

Butthole Destruction

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 01:16 PM)

(must mention I'm not signed in on my phone, only the laptop)

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 01:15 PM)

That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

I don't know if anybody else has read this book, but it made number one in sci-fi on both Amazon and Barne's and Noble last year, and the most highly rated on Audible last year. I just finished it yesterday, and it was an awesome nerdfest.

I think a great deal of people who frequent the Allspark would enjoy it, so I just hope to spread the good news so more can enjoy! It's not the best book ever, but it's a lot of fun.

LOoks like a fun read to me, right up my ally! I'll check for it when I'm next in a bookstore
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

It does look interesting. I'll wait until April when the paperback hits and the ebook price drops.

I heard of it and definately want to read it. Just havn't got the chance yet.
Had this, and Snuff, Reamde, Micro and the existant volumes of Unwritten on my xmas list, but just got the first one and the last two (Though since Unwritten was like 4 volumes, thats still pretty good.)

It'll probably be my next book grab. Maybe this weekend. Can't go wrong with internet, sci-fi mystery with Uber 80s nostalgia. (Other than the 80s nostalgia part the description reminds me a bit of Tad William's Otherland which I loved.)


-ZacWilliam, just wishes it were thicker though. Years of epic Fantasy reading has left me thinking anything that's not almost as thick as it is tall looks skimpy. icon-hotrod.gif

Thickness isn't always a virtue though. I enjoyed Tad Williams for example but both of his early series - the Dragonbone Chair and Otherland - got unwieldy by the end. Heck, Dragonbone's "fourth" book was released in two parts and Otherland's was over a thousand pages on top of the six to seven hundred pages of the previous three each. His stories are interesting but he needs a better editor.
