Stop!!!  My brain cells are popping like popcorn kernels...........

Brinker changed his poster name and didn't tell anyone?

LMAO.  If I hadn't stumbled on Brinker's thread I never would have understood this...instead, I busted out laughing loud enough at work to get strange stares...

I guess now is as good a time as any to reintroduce myself...I'm sure most of you don't remember me since it's been a few years, and I never really was a consistently active poster to begin with.

Back when Finny or Jonzr or whoever it was that started up MGS, I was a heavy lurker and light-duty poster on the ESPN Steeler board, and pretty much tagged along for the ride, as I too was tired of the drama on the ESPN boards.  Once established here, I ended up being rather frustrated at the lack of frequency of posting on here (heck, it was an upstart after all back then), and instead of sticking it out here or in the ESPN boards, I just took a hiatus altogether.

Fast forward to the beginning of last season...I start posting heavily again on the Steeler board (and the AFCN Draught Haus on the Bengals board, of all places).  Have been posting consistently since then, with MGS pretty much pushed aside in my mind until the escapade the last few days with the Feebs reincarnation/impersonation...which triggered my memory of this place and brought me back here.

I'm here to stay now and....

<-----  look, I'm no longer a N00b!

"This Drama is based on illusion and Dionysus last appearance in the play is seen as a dues ex machine because he Greek text lost stage direction.  Athenians might have found offensive were that Euripides seeks to write with a great amount of imagery.  Euripides also doesn't have a lot of prizes that Sophocles contains, giving them a lower amount of impression than that of Sophocles."

This is why you should never buy the Cliffs Notes, Engrish Edition.

I'm betting you had a lower amount of impression for this essay than the student believes he deserves.

I'm just waiting to read someone who says that "Julius Caesar is a salad-dressing dude."

This is why it scares the hell out of me that my kid is going to college.  I've read some of his writing, and I have no doubt that it will be posted on a prof's message board one day.

Alright, alright, it's now an "R" for reputation.  That heart was pretty much 89%.
