    Random Rules for a Random Banter
    OBEY!
    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.
    Here's to Banters that are Random!
    HUZZAH!

    I think both had mental disease strike their children too. Maybe marrying first cousins is not such a great idea.

    I presume so! Same sound, different letters.

    As for the Einstein stuff, the moral of the story is "Don't have kids with family, lest you want to create an offspring who has serious mental issues". Homozygosity anybody?

    James Cameron's Avatar was also awful, so it wouldn't really be that cool in the first place

    True, true. The other Avatar is much better. Now I'd like to see that in real life! (Without all of the villains trying to kill everybody, of course).

    He did say "assuming no offspring", though, so presumably that wouldn't be an issue.

    Oh, I missed that. Well, in that case it's in the "not-for-me-but-if-it-works-for-you"-category.

    You can get blue people without offspring, though. Just ingest enough colloidal silver (see picture):



    Alternative medicine. It won't cure your illness but it may just turn you blue. (Yes, that's an overgeneralization for humerus purposes).

    Yay! It's a new thread!

    *boogies*

    So, I'm feeling a bit overworked. Full time job, internship (unpaid) 14 hours a week, 3 kids, and husband. All I can say is, at least the internship is temporary. And interesting. If it was something I'd done before I think the boredom might actually kill me...
    Long live the Ceikatar!

    So, I'm feeling a bit overworked. Full time job, internship (unpaid) 14 hours a week, 3 kids, and husband. All I can say is, at least the internship is temporary. And interesting. If it was something I'd done before I think the boredom might actually kill me...
    That's a lot to have on your plate. Either way, I'm glad that the internship is interesting. It's a lot better than doing nothing at your job.

    ION: I'm sick! Yay! At the very least, it means I can stay home from school to watch Smash 4 streams.

    I had a random question that I want data points for. How did everyone first learn about Google (if you say it was omnipresent your whole life, you will make me feel deeply old)? Mine was from a 9th grade biology teacher who gave us a project where we had to identify a scorpion species from a story and description he gave us. He recommended this "Google" search engine because he thought it was better at the time than Ask Jeeves and would make our work easier. Turns out, he was right.

    It must have been 10-15 years ago... osmosis. People with whom I spent time told me it was better. I don't remember, but I don't think it was anything more than that.

    I was using yahoo. I heard about google trough osmosis; a slightly more tech-savvy friend (read: hipster, bleeding edge, too good for you, blablabla) who began to use google and Wikipedia a lot.

    Fun fact, until I looked it up myself, I thought Wikipedia was the stupidest possible thing: a pretentious encyclopedia for wiccans because they knew better than everyone else what was real. That probably says a lot about the people I knew at the time.

    I think it's the default search engine for the version of Explorer that came with Windows ME. And since that was the first browser I used...

    I don't remember. It wasn't omnipresent, because I remember Ask Jeeves (later just Ask) and Yahoo used to be things, but my early interactions with computers were all based on word-of-mouth - classmates and teachers telling me sites.

    This. I remember Ask Jeeves before google, but google popped up somewhere... probably around 10 years ago, I'd guess.

    I remember a lot of people referring to wikipedia as wildly inaccurate most of the time, and now I tend to trust it implicitly unless it contradicts something I remember as fact (at which point I cross-reference the information elsewhere). Interesting how that's happened.

    I never used Ask Jeeves, before Google it was HotBot.

    Ask Jeeves became Ask?! But yeah. I was in the same bubble of Google not being omnipresent, but still not a novel idea. I remember Google, Ask Jeeves, Yahoo, and whatever the dog-themed one was.

    ^: Honestly, I can't remember that many Australian stereotypes off the top of my head.

    I mean, they like vegemite for some reason, presumably cultural or climate, and prefer it to marmite while sometimes thinking marmite is edible if you mix it with something first if there's no vegemite, maybe? They drink beer instead of water because there's not enough water? They're all WASPs leaning towards the blond(e) despite a fairly significant immigration from Asia?

    They somehow survive through pure dumb luck despite everything on the continent wanting to kill them or at least being capable of doing so?

    They came up with "Technicolor Yawn" as a euphemism for vomiting? They're credited with the combination of putting a fried egg, grilled spam, and grilled pineapple on a hamburger all together?

    They like "barbecuing" spam? And by that I mean, grilling spam outdoors, maybe?

    *watches video*

    ...I don't want to go all the way through this...
