1  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Fun "game" this is! on: February 19, 2004, 19:55:50
I say "game" because this is more of a "huh?"  kinda thing.  You sit there and wonder what you just did with that last few minutes of your life, but then play again because it's fun, and you want to beat (well, you can't beat it... 20,000 is the max) my high score. also works... links everywhere.

It's fun.  And ... fun.  But mostly, it's a game.  Once you get a method to get to 20,000, keep it to yourself, let the other peoples figure it out for themselves [|)]

It's so good that you actually NEED these just to play it...maybe.  It's in question if you really do.

Any Windows OS

Tell me how awesome you think it is. [|)]

By the way - DO NOT THINK you are getting a virus alert or anything.  This is safe and funny.

I have stumbled across the most beautiful thing in all existance for us techy people here...  All of those gadgets and gizmos from the Bond Movies are so tempting, but now we get our revenge!

Who wouldn't want a wristwatch with a USB connection that can store 256 megs of data?  Or a pen?

How about a nice BSD box with a fake fishtank featured!  The fish actually move!

Who WOULDN'T want a GREEN laser pen instead of a boring old red one?!

Voice-recognition login to windows? SURE!

Portable Lie Detector?!

Walkie-Talkie Watches! 1.5 mile radius!

This site truly is the haven for all nerds, geeks, and all other forms of "computer peoples".  Here's a link, go check out their amazingly low prices, and reply here!

4  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / I've reached my limit...Enough is enough... on: November 02, 2003, 04:35:19
A lot of you really have no clue who I really am..what makes me tick, how I operate.  Well, it's complex.  But there is one thing that just manages to get me angrier and angrier by the day.  It's so trivial and menial that it shouldn't even matter, but to me it's the biggest deal in the world.  I can't even explain why it just is.

This problem lies in proper use of english.  I look around the forums and all I see is words used incorrectly... Run-on sentences... and "acronymed" words.  You have no idea how much this kills me.  Everyday I grow more insane because of it all...  I'm tearing out my hair trying to conjure up a reason for it all, and I can't find one!  So I've posted this topic here to figure it out.  I want to know why this is.  I want to know how it got this way.  And I want to know how to put a stop to it.

I also wanted to let people know of the mistakes they so commonly make these days.  I'll try to tone down my violent rage ([Tongue]).

Lose/Loose - I know you pronounce lose in a way that makes it sound like it is two "o's", but I can assure you it isn't.  Two topics I easily found display this:

Can you EVER loose yourself???

What causes us to loose awareness?

I know it may sound right, but it isn't.  It's lose.  Loose means not secured down, not fastened.  Lose means it's gone, you lost it.  

Truly - This is the only correct way of spelling truly.  It is derived from true, yes, but it drops the E when it goes adverbial.  It is not "truely" or "truley"... or any other crazy way we can tack the E back on there.


Let's just easily define these...

There - Location.  If it's not here, it's there.  Also an word to desribe "Where did they go?" There they go.  Still location. Always location.

Their - Possessive.  Who's what.  It's their toy, their money, their time.  Nothing more.

They're - They are.  If you're trying to say they are, this is the word to use.  Never anything else.

And lastly, I would just like to make this statement.   Sure, people will hate me for it.  They shouldn't, but they will.

I would like for an end to the letters "u, b, y, c, k, o, and r" and the numbers 1, 2, 4, and 8 as replacements for whole words. I've also noticed marks used as entire words, like "?" Suddenly becomes "question".  No... "?" is, and always has been, "question mark".  I feel as if this started with a simplified version of english, but I fear the results.  I have already calculated a version of what I think will happen if this continues to take over more words.

It goes from ->

Haha! Aren't you so cool!    -to-

lol! rnt u so col!   -to-

l! r u s c!

This can't happen.  I know there is no way to permanently stop the simplification of english words to nothingness everywhere, I just hope I can halt it here.

Along with this problem lies another "pet peeve"...  Somehow in my time here I have brought about look-alikes attempting only a post count.  I have realized the stupidity of my actions and have halted irrelevant postings around the forums.  Nowadays I see copycats of my old actions, and needless to say, it is actually very bothersome.  I hope there lies an end to this as well.  Posts should be posts about the topic, not random gibberish.  Topics are the same... topics should be relevant as well.  I have examples of such irrelevant topics. (Also herein lies the spelling madness I spoke of)

I had lots of fun pronouncing these words as they are written.  If it has no apostrophe, how can it be a contraction? If it has no capitalization, how can it start the sentence?

I appreciate anybody who took the time to read this, and I apologize to anyone I may have offended.


Ps - This site rules for learning proper english.
5  Bug Reports and Questions / Forums Bugs Reports and Questions / Hey Adrian... HTML in profiles? on: October 24, 2003, 01:18:52
I'm posting to question if we can customize our profiles more using html or any internet language for that matter.  I posted here to ask if that's alright with you.  I like to be as original as possible you know [Smiley]

6  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Hey brain! Shut Up! on: October 21, 2003, 03:11:35
So I was in the middle of gettin an OBE in (it'd have been my first!)  and all the sudden I'm flooded with random thoughts.  I was listening to some Whose Line is it Anyway mp3's hours before, and almost every single one re-entered my brain and set themselves to infinite loop.  I'm like "No! You can't be here! Go lay down!"

Of course they don't listen.  I try to rid them one by one...  it aint working.  I tried adding them to the attempt with no avail.  Stupid songs.

It ain't just the songs.  I mean like on that day I did nothing.  I sat here and watched the forums refresh with no posts...  Was actually kinda sad [Cool]  My brain doesn't shut up.  Grr.

Assistance required?  [|)]

7  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / It's Opposite Day! on: October 13, 2003, 23:18:31
Or is it?!

If it were truly opposite day then the title topic should read "It's NOT opposite day!"

But then if it is opposite day and I tell you it's not opposite day then you, the people not living in opposite day, will think that it is not opposite day when in fact it IS opposite day?

Is it opposite day?

If so we all have to let work/school drive to us, not wake up, wash the shower, and allow the morning paper to sit and have a read.

Fun stuff eh?

Anybody else think about the craziness that lies within opposite day that never made any sense?  Well THINK ABOUT IT NOW!!!

9  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Squeek = Awesome on: September 27, 2003, 22:51:12
Hey. I'm Squeek.  You may remember me from such posts as this one right here.

Over the months, I have spent my time making posts... exactly 1000 at this point. Which brings me to the point of this topic...

I'm a Premier Member!!! [8D][Cheesy][Smiley]

Time to celebrate!!  You can say how cool I am, how colorful I am, how cool I am, or just how cool I am.


PS - If I hear ONE comment about "Quality, not Quantity", I'm so gonna kill you.  Don't make me come over there Smiley
10  Healing / Welcome to Healing discussions! / Improving your memory? on: September 21, 2003, 00:00:20
Eh... my memory sucks...  It sucks alot.  I even got an example from 5 minutes ago to share with you all about my memory.

So I remember I have a soda I kept in my desk drawer, and I was thirsty, so I went downstairs with a glass to fill it with ice.  As I'm going down, I notice the glass has a little bit of leftovers from the last drink I had, so I wash it out...then I walk away.  I got halfway up the stairs before I realized I never even got my ice.  [Cool]

My mom is afraid to let me drive alone, because I will forget where I parked my car.  Of course, she wouldn't just say that... we've had firsthand experience.

I could go on for hours on how my memory fails to function at all, or you could just help me figure out what's wrong! [8D]  I have examples from school, home, these forums, all over...

Edit - I forgot to add something [xx(]  I wanted to add that these memory losses or whatever don't apply to my music.  I've gotten all the lyrics on all 1,000+ of my songs on this computer memorized.

I also forgot to add that this is the reason I don't study for school...what's the point if I'll forget in an hour [|)]

11  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Yourself...In 1 picture or less. on: September 09, 2003, 19:35:54
YAY!  It's the topic...

Describe yourself, in one picture or less!

Now, I don't want a picture of you.  That's not what this is about.  Once you see the picture I chose, you'll get it.

Here are the rules:

1.  You get ONE picture that you will use to describe you best.

2.  That's about it.  Most likely not too big, it's alot on the server Smiley

Here... Is..... Mine.  This is a picture of my personality, in one picture or less.

Are you ready for the craziness?

Darn tootin.  Lookit him go.  SOOO Post your own!  YaY!

Hard for y'all to beleive, I'm sure... BUT...

I have NO clue what the Focus 23 or 10 or WHATEVER is.  Not a clue.  Did I miss something here?

Can someone clue me in to this info, that'd be awesome.

Hi... As you may know, I'm a senior in high school... and I just realized that life is gonna seriously get way harder for me in the coming years.  SOO.. does anybody have any insightful advice for me, so I don't stress out everyday and kill myself?  [|)]

15  Bug Reports and Questions / Forums Bugs Reports and Questions / Another question... [Anonymous] on: August 29, 2003, 18:45:11
You see [Anonymous] in the "Online Users" section at the top...

Some members are not [Anonymous], and some are.  I know I am, because when I'm there, it says [Anonymous] is looking at the online users section...  So how do I un-anonymous myself?

Thanks in advance to anyone that helps [8D]

16  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / 1,000 posts = Leave the site? on: August 29, 2003, 01:05:35
I say that because the first THREE people to 1,000 suddenly left the site...  For who knows how long.  Tom said he felt as if he was posting too much, so he took a "break".  Nice break so far [Smiley] Now get over here.  [Cool]

Kakkarot... boy I didn't even hear from him when he left.  It was like... post post post post post leave.  Yea. You need to come back too [8D]

And FRANK!  Gahh, we just had him... What happened here?  I didn't get this memo that once you reach 1000 you feel like you posted too much! [xx(]

You two 1,000'ers better not leave...or umm...  Well I can't do anything about it... But seriously.  You two are all we got up there now Smiley

Anybody else feel this way?

17  Bug Reports and Questions / Forums Bugs Reports and Questions / Animated GIF craziness! on: August 29, 2003, 00:43:55
Wow, my first post here...  

Anyways... since I probably started the animated avatar fad (hehe) I have noticed plenty more animated GIF's being used for an avatar... And, strangely enough, all of them slow down near the end of their cycle!  Once it reaches the end, It goes back to normal speed, then slows down again, over and over again... This happens to every moving avatar BUT mine.

Is this my browser or something...  I can't tell. Hopefully someone can resolve this Smiley

18  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Round 2! Anyone ever try this...? on: August 28, 2003, 01:57:33
OK so on my 7 hour plane ride to Alaska... I thought... Wow. Nobody's posted about this.. I wonder if anyone's done it!  That is to say, Astral Project from an airplane.  30,000 feet above the ground? Sure! Why not?

Hehe, post anything you'd like about it :p

19  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Signatures!!! on: August 27, 2003, 16:27:47
Ok it's time to get this section of the forum back to what it should be.  Weird crazy crap.  So let's get started.  

I am Squeek.  I guarantee the only way you know me is my overloads of nonsensical postings here, which is what I do... BUT, I always throw in a little comedy in-between even the most serious of posts. But probably what you don't know is where some of my signatures come from!  I must've had a dozen by now... And 4 avatars!

Well NOW'S YOUR CHANCE!! I post all my signatures over the months (only the funny ones... my first one was crap) for you to chuckle over.  NOT ONLY THAT! I also give you an explanation!  Two for the price of 1! Only $9.95. Pay me.

Starting with my latest one.  This is from a book called : Fillerbunny in "I Fill Up 15 Pages!"

"You want corn? I give you corn.  So much corn do I give."

Ready to see how funny the bunny is?

Heheee....  Too good.

Now onto... the BACON AND EGGS! (And Picketing)

This one is too easy... and non funny.  I use a chat program called mIRC all the time (this is where I moderate, FYI).  So basically I'm in a channel with a bunch of people that like almost the same things I like... There's this one guy there with a little dealy known as a "script" that does stuff for him... anyway one particular aspect is, when he quits, it displays a message.  That was one of them.  So was the picketing.

Bacon and eggs - Daily work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig...

I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

Now we go onto...other things!

You may recall...

"Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy.  The following adventure is true, and by true, I mean false.  It's all lies.  But, they're entertaining lies...and, in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer, is no..."

Marge : Homer, no! You'll kill us all!
Homer : Or die trying!

Both quotes from the simpsons.  I don't even know if I had anymore from that show, but I should have Wink  

And the really big word dealy...

I really can't remember anymore...Like I said, my memory is total crap.  SO...


We wanna hear em all! (or at least I do.)

20  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Helping someone else out. on: August 26, 2003, 02:01:58
So to keep this as brief as possible, the only question I have is...

Once you are out, is it possible in any way to pull somebody else out with ya?


21  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Gone for a while... on: August 14, 2003, 02:28:35
Alright Peoples, LISTEN UP! Cheesy

This lil ol (well, young :p) mouse is headin to Alaska for 2 weeks.... I'm gonna be away from any form of computer or internet, so I won't be able to talk to you...but you can still "talk" to me Smiley

See ya'll in two weeks!! Cheesy


PS - I'll bring pictures!
22  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / The thrill is gone.... on: August 02, 2003, 19:10:39
So without much of a complicated intro on this one, i say...

I've lost the urge these days to do much of anything.... at all.  Anybody know some fun stuff do do while sitting at home for hours on end alone?  

Lemme rephrase that.  Anybody know something that a 17-yr old that isn't allowed to leave the house that sits at home without any friends here can do?  :p

It's like 4:10 here... Saturday.  I have another 2 weeks before I actually do something angry

23  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Manners Mmkay? on: July 24, 2003, 21:08:40
I hope anyone can see the reason I made this topic, and why I made it HERE, the area with the most issues at the moment.

Alot of new people joined the forums this week, and that's a very good thing.  But know this - First impressions kill.  So far, to all (i should think all...) of us have already identified kibeginnersnightmare as an annoying kid who wants to learn everything NOW!

Well, I would agree with that, but can you honestly say any different for yourself?  When you are a kid, you want to learn things, as fast as you can.  Like magic tricks.  I was way into those, so I would just HOUND people to tell me tricks they knew.

Here, it's a bit different...  This place isn't a classroom, or a playground, it's a forum, and a very diverse one at that.  We have people from ages 11 (guessing...) to 50-something (guessing...).  We have people from North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, you NAME it!  We're all in this together, in our own little way.  That's why I wrote this post.  I hope the people I wrote it to (everyone :X) reads it.

Now for manners...

Kibeginnersnightmare - People are really annoyed when you make that many topics that fast.  Especially when they are 2 of the SAME, and some in the wrong places all together.  Also, when you post a topic, say something!!! Don't say plz>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>...  Plead your case, state your inquiry, say words...  Good grammar is cool too. *thumbs up*

To ANYONE (Especially new peoples) - It'd be so cool if you checked the search function for what you're looking for before you post.  Sometimes you'll find the answer faster just searching through some old dicussions on it! I know I did.  If you look up the word "Ki ball" in a search, i guarantee you will find about 60 topics on it. (Give or take 50ish).  And, pleese make sure that you post in the right place!!! There is a forum for everything.  Don't just post on the most popular forums...

~Squeek (Hopefully I don't ever gotta repeat this again :p)
24  Bug Reports and Questions / Forums Bugs Reports and Questions / Annoying boxes!!! on: July 17, 2003, 04:50:06
Ok so recently whenever somebody else on the forum has used bold or italic codes, they appear as these annoying boxes to me.  Something like this - [].  I was chatting with some people and asked them if they used bold like you are normally supposed to and they said they are.

The boxes also tend to replace apostrophes as well...I don't know if this is an internet explorer thing or what, but since this is the only site I ever go to, I was just wondering if this could be resolved Smiley

25  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Nostalgia!! on: July 14, 2003, 23:28:11
I dunno WHY I decided to make this, but look, I did.

Basically, you post what you were like when you first joined the forums, and what you've changed!  This'll be fun for the oldies. Smiley

Here's mine for example!

Who remembers THIS!

There is no truth in lies
But there is often lies in truth

I wanted to sound important when I made my first signature.  That made me feel important.  

I can tell you back then I was so obnoxious and gullible.  I didn't even write in color.  I came here as soon as I got interested, and I was obviously not ready at the time.  That was why I quit for a month.

So!  Let's hear your sad stories!!!  Cheesy
