I was Told to Make a Thing Here

Post by Whiskey Rebellion on Wed Dec 10, 2014 10:39 pm

Howdy, I guess.

First off, the name. It was a tax revolt in the early days of the US that Washington smashed with his iron boot of freedom. I find history and politics interesting, and I discovered this place by way of Project Horizons, so I thought it would be a fitting name.

About me, I guess. I am a Cuban-American that grew up in the boondocks of Georgia. I stand by the ideals of Southern Hospitality and Latin Tough-headedness. I have the tact of a fundamentalist Mormon on speed, so if I come off a bit mean, I most likely mean nothing by it. Most importantly, I am not racist, do not partake in any narcotic, and do not engage in sexual relations with my kin. Please don't imply that, the jokes got old two minutes after I spoke to my first New Yorker.

Nice to be here, and I hope to actually bring valid input to any conversations I get into.

I think we'll get along fine.

Well, nevermind. There goes all our common ground.

Well now that you mention it...

*looks around suspiciously*

...I may engage in such. On occasion.

For some reason, I always imagined that that question utterly enraged the family, who were hoisting her up to cast her to the pits at the behest of the Ephors. Or, like, El Ephoros.

That's actually a very common occurrence in in Hispanic families. Anyone says something heterodox, they get thrown to the vagabundos, the lowest casta.

I lost three brothers and a sister to that. I still see what they did to my aunt every time I close my eyes.

But you know what they say; trauma is good for the soul.

It's like we say in the Army. "Cull the wheat from the chaff."

Well, it's like I say in the Army. My NCO's don't say it; they just glance at me and write things down.

How else would you weed out the undesirables? It's natural selection, I say.

Probably considering you for promotion. You got a real American can-do attitude.

I am eligible for a waiver to E-4 in a few months.

Just don't ask me to drive a Bradley.

Or an LMTV.

Or a HMMWV.

Just.....keep me away from vehicles, really.

I know how you feel.

Whenever my teammates need to do something, I'm always driving the Warthog, or Scorpion, or Mongoose, or what-have-you.

And then I crash and we all die and somehow it's my fault, despite them knowing that I can't drive.

inb4 I get called out for my cowardice

Oh, no, you're fine. I don't judge you for being a lesser human being than I. If I did that, I'd be alone in the world.

On another note, if you like people saying funny things, you might enjoy this thread of funny things people say.

All that's left is for Whiskey to irrationally hate Vinyl and I'll be convinced you two are related.

Now, assuming you're referring to Vinyl Scratch/DJ Pon-3, then, well, I wouldn't say "hate," more like, "I would stab this person 23 times in the chest if she were ever to move near my place of residence."

I don't like loud noises when I try to sleep.

Nah, he means Vinylshadow, one of the users. And I strain to call my loathing "irrational", as I'm sure you'll understand once you read a few of his posts.

I shall count the moments.

Speaking of moments, you know they're an actual unit of time?

Fifteen moments in a minute.

60/15=4

Four seconds in a moment.

I actually never knew that. I'm not even going to look that up, because it's my headcanon, real or not.

There are actually a few conflicting definitions.

There's the one I gave, which is correct.

Then there's those who say a moment is 1.5 seconds.

And then there's the nutjobs with this timescale:
1 hour = 4 points = 10 minutes = 15 parts = 40 moments

I ain't even doing that math.

The 4-second timeframe seems to be about the objective whenever someone tells someone else "wait a moment" or the like. 

I can't wait to bore everyone I know with more of this trivia that only I and my online friends find interesting.

The internet is the single most miraculous invention humanity has ever been graced by Ogma with. It is the only thing we have ever created which we do not understand.

So what other use is there for it besides getting random factoids to annoy people with?

Aside from porn.

So there's two of them now?

I... am unsure what to feel about that. 40/40/20 dread, despair and disarray, I think?

Irrational implies there is no particular factual reason to dislike Vinyl. That really, really isn't the case. Anyways welcome to the forums Whiskey it looks like you'll do fine here.

Knowing you, I'd say more 30/30/20/20 dread, despair, disarray, and poorly concealed overwhelming sexual attraction.

I must protest the "poorly concealed overwhelming" part. You know me better than that.

You use the attraction to hide the obsession. Like when the cops raid your house, and you leave the drugs out so they don't search and find the bodies.
