It certainly is, which is why if I really want the item in question, I do the 'buy it now' option. 'S what I did to get the Serenity film cell thingy I've got on my computer desk. And the b-i-n price usually isn't too awfully more than the start price, leastways not that I've seen.

Ah, no. Snipers are much more advanced than just that. There are sniper sites you can use on the web that watch your items and bid in the last few minutes, upping your bid each time someone else counters. You could be out drinking with the boys and your sniper is watching your e-bay back. E-bay has a similar option, but it ups your bid EVERY time someone else bids until it reaches your max.


Ahh....I sit corrected. Thanks for the save, Rugbug!

I just think they've got more spare time than I do, mostly.


Scars I don't remember? Nope, I can account for the few I have that are still here. Weirdly, several I'd had from my early and teen years gradually faded away and are no longer visible. The one that did stay stay faintly I got from fighting with my brother.

*Owies* to those who shared painful injury stories.
I think my most painful thing was when I smashed the joint in my pinkie finger when I was in second grade when someone accidently dropped the oak trap door of a treehouse I wasn't suppose to be in on it.
I was more afraid of my folks finding out I'd disobeyed them than I was of the pain and bleeing from my finger. Good news is I still have the finger. Bad news is, it doesn't move of it's own volition. But strangely, no scar.

Scars... scars... I have a small scar on my forehead from when I whacked my head off a path when I was a kid. Nasty fall.

Yes, I had a head injury as a child. I'm told this explains a lot of things.

Other than that, some scratches and scrapes picked up over the years, but nothing serious. I had three scars on my hand from where I got knocked by a car last summer, but they've almost faded. My stupid fault - practically walked into the damn thing. Lucky for me the driver was going so slowly he was practically parked.

Mum said the scratches on my hand looked like I'd been attacked by a cat. Funny, since the car was a Rover. I had some other bumps and scratches since I bruised my arm up and, once again, scratched my forehead, but overall I was okay. Just pretty sore for a day or two!

I have been very, very lucky. I've never needed surgery or any nasty medical procedure and I've never broken a bone. About the most serious injury I've had was twisting my ankle so badly I had to get hours of X-rays just so the docs could make sure it really, really wasn't broken. Wound up on crutches for two weeks. Not fun! But been very lucky and injury free and hoping to keep it that way. As long as I remember to look both ways crossing the road!

I'm not sure what "whacked my head off a path" means, but it reminds me of faded scar...from running into the support wire for a telephone pole. It had the plastic cover protector thingy (patented name, that is) which ended right at Rugbug forehead height. Distracted me was looking over my shoulder and SMASH, my forehead became one with the PCPT.

*hugs* I've only broken my fingers...singly not all at the same time. The finger I mentioned above has been broken at least 4 times. I stopped having it set after the 2nd time which was from my brother and I playing air hockey. We both went for the puck and my finger got in the way. The 3rd time was having it slammed in a locker at school. I went to my next class and splinted it to a pencil much to the teacher's amazement. He wanted to send me home and I asked why bother as this is what they'd do, only it would cost my folks a few hundred dollars in ER charges.
I've also greenstick fractured the middle finger of the same hand. That's the one that hurts when the weather changes. Go fig.

What I need to look out for, however, is going down stairs. I keep going too fast, missing a step, and falling down them. One of these days I'm gonna get more than bruises from that.

Hey now, no wrath from me, and certainly not aimed at you, JQ.

The short answer to "why do Mormons have so many kids?" is that it is part of their religious beliefs that the soul of every person who has ever lived or will ever live existed before the world was created. In order for God's plan to progress, each and every one of those souls has to be offered the chance to live a life here on Earth. So each baby born is another soul that has been offered that opportunity, which is why Mormons often have such large families. They also place a strong emphasis on strong bonds within the family ("No success in life can compensate for failure in the home."), which again comes back to a religious belief in "forever families" -- the idea that after death, we stay connected to our family.

And the short version of why there might have been wrath... (Feel free to skip this, if you heard it the first time around, or if you honestly don't care. ) I was raised LDS ('LDS' is generally considered to be the more polite short name for Mormons, standing for the latter part of the full name of the church: the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), but when I was a teenager I realized that some of the basic beliefs didn't mesh with my personal beliefs. The rest of my family is still LDS: my five younger siblings, my parents, my brother's wife, all my aunts, uncles, and cousins, etc. My family are also huge, *huge* Browncoats. My father converted me, after hearing about Firefly from someone at work. So a few weeks ago there was a thread on Whedonesque.com discussing LDS scifi author Orson Scott Card's love of Firefly, which quickly turned into a discussion of why some Whedon fans don't like OSC, because of his views on homosexuality -- which, like many conservative Christians, stem directly from his religious beliefs.

I got quite upset about the conversation. I should emphasize here that I don't consider myself LDS, and I disagree with OSC's (and my parents') views on homosexuality. What hurt me in the Whedonesque conversation was that I felt that many of the people who posted were creating an atmosphere hostile towards fellow Browncoats who hold religiously-based, traditionally conservative political views. I know that my family (as Mormons, Conservatives, Browncoats, and big Orson Scott Card fans) would have been hurt and felt ostracized, had they read the Whedonesque thread. So in the end, all I was asking is that we all keep in mind that we are drawn together by a love of the same show, not by similar religious beliefs or political views, and to be conscious of the effects our words may have on others. I was pretty upset, so I took a break from all things Firefly for a bit, and then came back to only the Imponderables threads, nothing else. Whedonesque has lost me as a reader, permanently.

Well, so much for those being short answers.

And good god the thread got long yesterday! I tried to catch up four separate times, and just gave up on it. I think there was a topic on scars at one point? I have one on the middle finger of my right hand, on the inside facing my ring finger, just below the first knuckle. It's triangle shaped and it itches from time to time. I've had it as long as I can remember, though. When it itches, I joke that it's my alien implant.

Oh, and:

*waves back to RMMC*

Ouch! Those finger injuries sound nasty. And you sound very tough, patching a broken finger up yourself. If I broke anything I'd probably cry like a baby. I get *very* emotional when I'm injured or sick. It's very annoying. Whenever I'm ill I have to lock myself away somewhere so I don't make a scene.

I've done the falling downstairs thing too. Found out the hard way that you should *not* walk down a flight of steps during a panic attack! Especially in your workplace just before lunch on the main flight of steps so everyone in the entire building troops past you on the way to lunch while you and the first aider are waiting for the ambulance. That was a really, really sucky day.

DTH--the fingers weren't too bad. It hurts for a bout 20 minutes and well, I get sinus headaches that are considerably worse than that is.

*winces at DTH's stairs story* Owie! And embarassing.

My first trip down was at work when I collected lab specimens on the patient floors at a hospital. The worst part for me was having lost one of the specimens all the way down the stairwell, which meant some poor patient had to have the specimen collected (a 24 hour process!) all over again. That bothered me much more than the bunged-up knees and shins.

Out of curosity, how many times did the doc ask you if you hit your head on the way down? I think the one time, the doc asked me that question almost a dozen times.

*hugs CaliforniaKaylee* I completely missed all that. I understand where you're coming from. I was on a mailing list that was suppose to be discussing SF. When the mod kept a 2 month 'let's bash conservatives' thread going, I opted out after telling her exactly why and that I considered it not only mean-spirited and rude, but completely inappropriate to the list subject. Never heard back from her, but she did remove me from the list. And this from "friends" that I actually knew FTF. *shrug*

I accidentally stabbed myself in the upper arm. I looked down at the knife sticking a couple of inches into my arm, my hand still holding it, and immediately thought "I have a video to return to the video store".

My guess is my brain was a bit scrambled/shocked.

Oh, and I missed a major artery by fractions of an inch.

The knife was not hurt.

I've only got two really good scars. One is on my upper lip, just under my nose. I got that when I was three or so, getting my face impaled by a shard of ceramic. Nastiness. It's most of the reason I wear a beard. The other one is on my knuckle, which I got when my brother knicked me with a just-sharpened axe. That thing split me open with a breath of contact.

I lost track of the other points of conversation, though. Nuts.

Oh, and welcome back, CK. I was hoping the unpleasantness over at Whedonesque wouldn't run you off for good. Just hope you didn't have to see the nastiness a few threads back.

hey DTH *bigassjimibearhuggles* The board misses you too...

I have a scar on my forehead from trying to dive into a pool without putting my hands in front of me in the shallow end. Fun times. I also have a small spot from my lip ring, and the recent trauma wherein I almost cut off my finger with a beer mug has left a pretty decent one.

Scars - one on forehead. I was underneath a half-brick when it came down (tough playgroup - we didn't have proper toys... )

But green eyes, glasses and a scarred forehead are so last year...

Other damage - permanently knackered left knee (fencing) and permanently wrecked left shoulder (aikido) Plus broken nose (random knee incident) - it looks straight, but I have no sense of smell. Dislocated two toes last year.

WooHoo! Two days in a row!

Lets see scars, where to start. I've got a series going up my right arm from a dog attack when I was 4or 5. If got another on my chin from tripping over a coat when I was 4 or 5. (I was in the emergency room so often that year people were starting to suspect my parents of abuse). I've got who knows how many small ones on my hands and legs from various cliff related mishaps. Then there's the surgery scars, but those are boring.

I think nighttime is dark so you can imagine your fears with less distraction.

I actually have very few scars - surgical, yes...but accident scars? Previously mentioned hand, one on my right index finger, and one on my leg from a few years ago when I borrowed a friends carpet cleaner and it shifted in the back of Dora and fell out and bit me on the leg.

Just got out of IM with my Ekornes contact Magrit over in Norway. She couldn't be any sweeter. She is going to go look for Firefly...I've intrigued her! Worldwide conversion...Resistance is Futile!

And yes, he does still ride a bike. Doesn't let a mikssing finger, a dislocated shoulder and several concussions get in the way.


Thanks for the clarification. I just love cross-cultural exchange stuff.

I just had a feeling he was a true biker at heart. And am very glad of it. Imagine my embarassment if he'd sworn off cycling forever as a result!!

Distracted me was looking over my shoulder and SMASH, my forehead became one with the PCPT.


I had a similar experience looking back to catch a pass. No plastic cover protector thingy™ (®?), no scar. Just a seatbelt-like burn.

It's all in how you slap the floor...

One of my favorite comics of all time (I may have mentioned this before) is a B.C. where Peter and Thor are watching Clumsy Carp crossing a vast expanse of nothing toward them. A small pebble lies between them. Clumsy Carp trips over the pebble and Peter says to Thor, "Pay up," as Thor is reaching into his pocket.

Didn't want to thread on sensitive toes (seems lots of them have been broken around here...). I never did venture over to Whedonesque to get the raw version but I could guess how it was from the descriptions I read here. We occasionally venture onto thin ice around here as well, but with the exception of RWED--and there's kind of a confrontational expectation there I think--I think things are usually pretty civil and tolerant.
*HUGS right back* Good to have you among us again.

Hi James. Seems like I hardly ever get to chat with you. Dunno why. Were we really that bad?

You know, blow for blow, you sound an awful lot like a certain teacher I know in Utah...you could be twins. Except she's my wife's twin. Mebbe you two can put on a fencing exhibition for us at D*C??

What's the problem? I had him strapped to the luggage rack on the top of the car...I think he was smoking crack, too. Possibly even had a little girl up there with him. I wasn't paying attention.

JQ- both. I climb, well I used to climb. Not many cliffs on the Mississippi flood plain. But every time I fell off a cliff I wasn't climbing, I was usually hiking. Its one of those things only i seem to be capable of.

I think nighttime is dark so you can imagine your fears with less distraction.

I'm way ahead of you, folks!
There's a bowlful of wholesome guns sitting on the dining room table, easy access to Daddy's p0rn collection, and of course, they play Grand Theft Auto together...

Now tell me...look at this beautiful face...


Wouldn't you want him running your retirement home?

Just a drive-by message -

I'm going to be off the boards for a while. We finally exchanged on our house purchase! So we're moving next Wednesday (it's late Friday here) and I now have to pack my books.

All twenty-odd book cartons of them. Plus the ones in the loft.

So I may be out a while. You hold 'til I get back.

ps Mav...don't normally like sprogs, but that's a wicked looking little tyke you got there

Thanks so much, Spaceanjl. I'm pretty fond of him, too!
Congrats on selling your house. Boxing up the library isn't fun. I don't envy you on that!

Sorry, HK. I didn't realize I had stepped into the Out of Context game. I need to warn myself better when I do that. Just trying to shake my finger at you. Seems to me I didn't try hard enough...

Mav- your tidbit's adorable!!! I like the mischievous twinkle:)

Anjl- cool gorgeous good luck with the packing.

Jonny- OK just laughing here:)

Morning all ...nothing like starting the day with a 3 1/2 hour meeting of boredom. Now on to the grading... though they're lucky I'm not grading them on the attitude they've had this whole last week.

It's the Yay! \o/ Out of Context game.
Don't forget the "Yay!" part of it! Cuz. Um. That's the best part, really.

You step into an aweful lot of stuff, you should be used to it by now.
