      Where have you been all my life? :)

        Thanks for posting in the Feminism thread. :)

        How is your fiction writing coming along?

        Thank you! I entered a "philosophy in fiction" competition recently with a short story, that I'm quietly hopeful about... other than that there just isn't time (or energy) at the moment...

      Yes, Myth Busters wouldn't be quite my thing... alas there's no time for Jack Reyn these days, I barely have time for myself!
    4. Mouthwash
      I just figured out that you appeared on the 'Myth Hunters' show, not Myth Busters. Should've known something was amiss when you said the History Channel.

      Is Jack Reyn ever coming back? If not, are you still writing fiction?

      Hello I want to know sir do you take requests
    6. Takhisis
      Could it be that the jackreyn.com site is down?

      Also, I see that you have begun your fifth decade. Conglaturation.

      Is there a rule precluding members from using the exact same (non-CFC) avatar picture? Or are there simply no rules whatsoever on what avatar picture can be used?
    8. Takhisis
      It's heartening to know that you aren't behind most of those comments… the Anglo-centrism of most mainstream English newspapers is depressing… suffice it to say that I found an 'article' claiming that Millwall-West Ham was among the top 20 football rivalries in the entire world. :cringe:

      (I had a better reply written but a power cut made me restart, I have some thoughts I wanted to write on at length :undecide:)
    9. Takhisis
      Do you use the name anywhere else? I've seen a few other Plotinuses commenting on the Telegraph and Guardian, among others.
    10. ExtraCrispy
      Can I have my screen name changed to "Teleologically Put"?

      You're certainly a beacon of logic, patience and politeness (I've been lurking your debate on the Fine-Tuning thread).

      Check your pm privilege :)

      The Reactionary thread is positively delightful, is it not? It makes you see certain posters in a whole new light! It even made me to make a brief comeback to the OT.

      Lefty helped me change my user name already so disregard my email that I sent to you earlier. Thanks...
    15. Jonius7
      I sent you a PM about changing my username. Did you receive it?
    16. ExtraCrispy
      Also Douglas Hofstadter.

      What do you make of Taleb?
    19. Erebras
      Could you pass this on to the appropriate party? I was navigating to http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=295004 (which is Resources for Unit Makers by ShiroKobbure) and GoogleChrome told me the page was infected with malware -- something about "...content from eastofindia.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this webpage..." and warned me not to continue loading the page.
    20. Tsoate
      Oh, fair enough.
      Thank you for letting me know.
      On the balance of that, if the discussion by those who are frequenters of those subfora is almost unanimous, what is preventing change happening?

      There seems to be a gap in the market. The mods say they are no more or less relevant than us, so count themselves out, and you count yourself out by not being familiar with that subforum.

      Could/Should not there be a role created, a spokesperson if you will, for subfora? Someone who actually cares for the Colosseum side of the website?

    I walked all the way from East St Louis, never had but that one, one thin dime. I laid my head in a New York woman's lap, she laid her little cute head in mine. She tried to make me believe by the rattlings of her tongue the sun would never, never shine.
