It's the land of confusion. You're wreaking havoc on the board again. I signed on yesterday and said "who's Drinks with George" and then today... "what the hell, who's Dr. Ew?" I should have known.....lol
 
I was confused about the curse thing as well.

"The Curse" is a phenomenon that seems to occur on some of the many-paged threads, like the Name Change threads. It seems like after a thread reaches a certain number of pages, maybe it's the threads with a lot of pics in siggies that need to download, I dunno...
but what happens is when you are the last person to post on a particular page, your post gets hung up and the next page will not show up until after a delay, and a few other posts have been entered. Then they all show up.

Mystery solved.
 
Gee it was more fun when I thought the thread was haunted, hehe

In fact...it just happened to me. My previous response vanished after I posted it. Very interesting phenomenon.

QVC curse.  This did not happen before that fateful night.  First name change thread?  No problem.
 
Dr. Ew.  Ha.  That's replacing Drewl.

It hasn't happened the whole thread.  Just the last 3 pages or so.
 
Anyways... a story...
 
I was sitting in the library on my very last day of Spring Break.  I was nice and peacefully using a research database in the empty computer section of the room and some dude comes and sits right next to me.  I don't look up, but I can hear him panting.  It was so loud I had to look because I thought he was wearing an oxygen mask and waiting on a lung transplant list.  He wasn't.  So, for the next hour I have this dude sitting next to me, panting, stretching, and GRUNTING while looking at sports websites, talking on his phone, and listening to headphones so loud I could hear his music.  Finally I got so annoyed I left.  In conclusion, this is why I hate people.

Mike, you are a master.  We're all sitting here talking about the Goos in this thread and you submit complete randomness.  Awesome.
 
I want to say I remember that commercial, but I was non-existant - 5 in the 80s, so I'm confused.

 
*bows* Cheesy
I was non-existant - 4 in the 80s.

Pfft. I'll join Denise in the anagram club. Tongue
 
It was a difficult choice, though. Other contenders included "Nerd, enmity of Gap" and "Damn Freeing Typo". Tongue
