magnumpkp - "I can't mate, I'm busy creating another sig' "

Nightmare - "LIGHTBULBS ARE CRAP, SO errrrrrr.....THERE"

zjj - "Calm down Nightmare"

SOTOPhantm, SOTOMac, warhawk, bkriley, ReconSnake, Parabellum, WK, budgie and Dark Ranger [in unison] - "Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. He's one of 'THE' greatest American heroes ever and if it wasn't for him, all of you would be errrrrrrr.........living in the dark."

warhawk - "Yes, and if any of you pinko, limey, commies have anything to say to the contrary you'll errrrrrrrr......make me get banned."

DS - :rolleyes:

Ruin - "Keep it on topic guys"

SOTOPhantm, SOTOMac, bkriley, ReconSnake, Parabellum, WK, budgie and Dark Ranger [in unison] "Here, here warhawk."

Syncopater - "But......but"

magnumkp - "Hmmmmm.....I might use a cat in my next sig' instead of a plastic monkey"

tyovan - "Hmmmmm......do you think this girl I just met would like a plastic monkey.....or perhaps Ghost Recon 'Gold' for PC?"

The Slink - "That bulb's looking good at the moment Rocky, how big is it, and when's it going to be finished?"

Ghost 4-6 - "According to American Heritage Dictionary; NOUN: An electric light in which a filament is heated to incandescence by an electric current."

DS :yawn:

Nightmare - "CRAP I TELL YOU.....CRAP"

SOTOPhantm - "In light of some recent events here. When you start to disagree with things that are happening, that you can't change a bulb on your own, it's time to go."

warhawk, snakebite, WK, SOTOMac, ReconSnake [in unison] - "Please don't leave us here in the dark SOTOPhantm."

SOTOPhantm - "Awwwww....you guys.....I couldn't ask for better and there is no one I'd rather have at my back when the bulb blows."

zjj - "Hey....come on now SOTOPhantm.....you're really being over the top about this!"

SOTOPhantm - "zjj you hold a very special place in my heart....I had fun here while it lasted, but alas, it is time to move on."

zjj - "ewww.....what a creep."

SOTOPhantm - "NYR, DR, you guys know how to get ahold of me anytime, as does anyone who knows me. Please feel free.

It was a pleasure to work and play with all of you, and I sincerely hope that that will continue. Please don't be strangers, and I will see you all around I'm sure. We all belong to one or more different forums, or we are all available on chat.

But like Warhawk, it's getting hard to keep a lid on my thoughts, and I'd rather that that didn't happen."

zjj - "OMG....a creep 'and' a drama queen."

warhawk - "SOTOPhantm?.......if you're going......then I'm going too."

zjj - "OMG....not you as well?........weirdo"

deathmonger338 - "I think I may be going to. Not many of you really know me or anything, but I've moaned enough that I'm broke, yet still........nobody's bought me a copy of Desert Siege. Thanks to those who have helped me out with things along the way. I just don't really feel like posting here much more in light of resent events.

Anyhoo, maybe I can catch some of you changing a bulb sometime."

zjj - "Who ARE you?"

ReconSnake - "As an American....blah, blah, blah....I have a right......blah, blah, blah.....to own as many bulbs as I want to light my property."

DS - ".......and indeed.....blah" :rolleyes:

SOTOPhantm, SOTOMac, warhawk, bkriley, Parabellum, WK, budgie and Dark Ranger [in unison] - "Hooaaaaaahhh......way-da-go ReconSnake."

ReconSnake - "Awwww.....shucks......thanks you guys."

SOTOPhantm - Semper Fi ! !

Rocky - "That's it......you all had your chance.....I'm locking this thread."

And lo........darkness fell upon the forums.

Rocky - "Oh!.....and ReconSnake.......you're banned."

And lo........light shone upon the forums once again......and it WAS good.

This is great, one of the funnies things I've seen in a long long time!!!

Then it takes one Pyro_Monty to complain that he wasn't mentioned in DS's post.

I was in this:

tyovan - "Hmmmmm......do you think this girl I just met would like a plastic monkey.....or perhaps Ghost Recon 'Gold' for PC?"

True!!

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

Actually, i had to change a lightbulb back in '95! Quite a big deal. Funny story actually. I was sitting thre watching tv, and then all of the sudden, the light went out!! so i had to go downstairs, get a lightbulb and i got a ladder, and put it in.
