  1. Re: The Thread In Which We Post Our Facebook Friends' Annoying Status Updates

    That won't happen.

    When I got married it could not have been in a Catholic Church, be by a Catholic Priest, or been recognized as completion of the sacrament by the Catholic Church. The group...

  3. Re: The Cathode Ray Mission: The Misc. Television Thread

    Gah.

    [Mild spoilers, but not much beyond what you might see in commercials].

    I am glad that the show made it through the third season, at least. This has been a fantastic story, one that I did...
