Hi, and thanks to everyone at Thunder’s for making this such a great place. It is refreshing to find a pace that has intelligent people to talk to, a healthy sense of humor (that doesn’t get abusive), and is lacking in all the “DoOd TaLk” (ebonics?) and immature sidetracking of many places on the web today. Wow, they even speak REAL ENGLISH here, too. What a concept.
Well to get on with things, I first joined here almost two years ago; after accidentally “catching wind” of Thunder’s Place. I was the chatroom moderator of an e-stim website. During one of my frequent late-night chats with the administrator, we started talking about “this-n-that”, and he turned me on to Thunder’s Place! My curiousity was piqued. Especially the part about “permanent” gains. I had always wondered if it was possible somehow, despite what everyone says. (It’s funny how things like that happen, I think. You have this “thing”… like an “inner voice” or “inner thinking” that’s trying to tell you something, and everybody around you says the “little voice” is wrong. So you quickly learn to ignore it. Then 30 years later, you find out the little voice was absolutely correct the whole time! Interesting.) Anyway, this guy had no reason to lie to me, and don’t forget I heard the word “permanent”, so I typed in the link and here I was!
I browsed with fascination as I read through some of the threads. THIS link is definitely getting bookmarked!
“…And the Lord commanded electron: “bookmark the link, silly”. And so it came to be, the link was to be bookmarked, and the link WAS bookmarked. And the Lord smiled, and said “It is good.” And all was well in the universe.”
“…And then the Lord commanded electron to “read the threads”. And electron DID read the threads. Not all of them. Nowhere near it (jeez gimme a goddam break here, okay?). But he gave it a good shot, anyway. Thunder’s Place was just too huge. Then two days passed, and one night passed too, and electron was still reading threads. Electron was tired. And then the Lord said “go to sleep, stupid!” And so it came to pass, and electron made his way to the bed, and fell into a deep, deep sleep.”
“…And one more night passed, and part of a day, too; and electron awoke. A faint purple glow filled the room, as electron rubbed his eyes. And Behold! Electron had left the computer on, and the monitor, too! The purple glow from Thunder’s Place was still emanating from the monitor screen. And the Lord smiled.”
“…And the Lord commanded electron to make some coffee. And electron did make the coffee. And it was good. And electron went back over to the faint purple glow of the computer, with the coffee, and started reading Thunder’s Place even further. And the Lord said “it is good.” And then the Lord said “join the club.” And electron said “huh?”. And electron said “What are you fucking kidding? Im not even awake here yet, goddammit!!!” And the Lord said, “Hey watch it… I’ve got my limits, too, ya know.” And this time, the purple glow came not from the warm glow of the monitor, but behold! A bright purple thunderbolt came down from the sky, and struck electron! Electron was awake, now. Lo, electron was DEFINITELY fucking awake, now. And the Lord repeated “join the club.” And electron DID join the club. And it came to pass, and electron was a member. He didn’t want any more of that “lightning bolt shit” ever hitting him again. And the Lord smiled. And the Lord said: “it is good.”
Listen to the voice. :)
