Welcome to the family Tom.

You're one of us now.

Tom, as one of Hopey's many fathers you must restrict his access to sugar. Heaven knows we don't need to throw fuel on a bonfire.
Gimme yer lunch money, dweeb.
Suitably Impressed
I've been lurking around this place for a good year or so now.

Hi all, I'm RAGEMODE, alternately known as Hat on most other sites. Despite my name, I'm not very hot headed and generally flee from any confrontation I wrangle myself into. I frequent another forum, so I guess I have a pretty good idea of what not to do, but it's the first time I've seen a forum with such a... shall we say primitive user interface. But what do I know, maybe I've just been coddled for too long.

I have great interest in military aviation, drawing and animation, and would post my dA here, but I'm not sure if that counts as shameless advertising, so I'll play it safe.

Delicious and Nutritious
In uffish thought
Hallo, Hatmode! Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life. Pizza is in the foyer, watch out for Ricky the Liver Monster, restrooms are around the corner and up three flights of stairs, emergency exits are jammed, should there be a decrease in pressure oxygen masks will fall from above, etc. etc. etc..

Eddie built the interface from scratch, as far as I know. Giving your dA would be fine, but there's a restriction on posting external links after joining. Oh, and the main thing to avoid doing here is staying on topic. tongue

Hello Hat, welcome. Beware of Hopey, as he will adopt you (see above posts for clarification).
They're a friendly bunch here so I'm sure you'll feel right at home in a few days. Also there's at least two other aviation geeks on here somewhere which I guess is cool (I'm not one of them).

Meh, Mezzanine was better.
Just a quick note about my absence.

I've been moving from Scotland to Florida - not permanently, you understand, just for a holiday in Disney World. Anyways, the journey has involved lots of planes, Dad learning to drive on the wrong side of the road, and riding the stuff in Disney World, so as you can imagine, there hasn't been much time for troping.
Definitely not a weirdo
It's Florida. No matter which side of the road you are on, there are still people doing it the other way. Florida is where the east coast puts its bad drivers.

Florida is where the best basketball players want to go, or want to leave. I don't get it.

I've never been to Florida. I hear it's very flat.

@Slendid Suit: You think that's the worst British price comparison websites have to offer?

You have been warned. Do not watch unprepared.

I have literally no idea what this was in response to. Why am I watching the old Go Compare ad?

Oh, now I remember. I liked the new ones in which the guy got hit with a rocket launcher XD

IKR?

Go Compare Guy is probably the best example of deliberate So Bad, It's Good in advertising. They even play off his status as The Scrappy in more recent ads, such as the one Slendid Suit mentioned where he gets a bazooka to the face.

Hi. I'm Required Cynic and i've been surfing the edge of TV Tropes for a couple of years now. From what i've gathered, this fora can be... interesting at times *coughwierdcough*

Anyways, the only reason i've never made one of these so-called "accounts" is because my reader wouldnt accept cookies until just recently.

Required "Likes" information: Anime, ala Little Busters and Gunslinger Girl

Video Games, by way of COD,Fire Emblem, and Zoids Legacy

Likes Gumi and Ritsuka best, but Rin comes up occasionally, with the "Benzene" series.

I'm not weird, am I? ☻

edited 16th Oct '12 7:07:54 PM by RequiredCynic

I'm always here, wether you need me or not. Deal with it.
Definitely not a weirdo
Welcome. As for your question of whether you're weird, well, the best way to find out is to take this brief survey:

Have you ever set yourself on fire?

Do you have a plan for the zombie apocalypse?

Do you know how to deal with a werewolf attack?

Can you distinguish between different kinds of vampires at a glance?

If you answered any of those questions, then you are on the TV Tropes forum, and thus are definitely weird.
Welcome Cynic! Feel at home.

The pizza is in the foyer. smile
