I don't remember, but I had the same impression that this topic was not ancient, and that someone gave a hoot.

How did I come here? Well, it's like this...

It was a cold and blithery morning (yes, I made that word up)...the beans were growing high, and that song was playing...you know, the one that has the bass so loud and low that it makes you feel that your bowels are going to explode, and as you walk towards the source, you realise that there is actually a doof doof beat hidden in it, and the nasally twang of a freakazoid who can't sing, spruiking about some filth of some variety...and I peered into the store window.

THERE IT WAS!!!

An ad for some political party, and how they were fixing the world (and not to mention how the OTHER party had done such a bad job of it). I was so bored and depressed that I had to see and hear their drivel, that I went home to drown in self-pity.

There was a button. It was black and shiny, and had a little blue light near it. As my hand moved towards the box, I could hear a tune in my head. It said "You're gonna make music that will change their brains"....

Whoops...that wasn't me. That was Carlos Santana. Now back to the story.

There was a button. It was black and shiny, and had a little blue light near it. As my hand moved towards the box, I could hear a tune in my head. It sounded like a muffly version of the whistle part in "Groove is in the Heart" by Deee-lite.

As I pressed it, the big screen showed a demonstration of color (that is "colour" in British English) that took my brain to another place. I don't recall what happened next, but in my head I saw little faces that stared running around the place, and this noise that sounded like the screens being opened on a computer, but backwards! The faces were saying "I have arms, but I can't give you a hug...I havE ArmS buT i CAn't giVE You A Hug (<--not a subliminal message)... I HAVE ARMS, BUT I CAN'T GIVE YOU A HUG!!! (((((echo)))))

I quickly jumped up from where I was lying, and discovered that the game was there right on my screen, and the sound was that of a slime being popped! The faces I'd seen were avatars on the game, and I thought to myself "Hey, did I leave the iron on? Haha, oh, that's right, I don't have an iron", and "I'd really like a coffee right now", and finally I thought "How did this game get here??? What is this concoction of caricature, this plethora of pleasurable play, this isthmus of amusement???"

So yeah, I sat at the table and played a bit.

How about you?

Let me help you understand pirate talk.
Arrrr!!! (The letter "R", and any other sentence or emotion imaginable, excepting the following ones); Arrrr!!! (angry "R"); Arrrr!!! (relaxed "Aaahh"); Arrrr!!! ("Man Overboard! Quick! Grab the ropes! Loosen the raft!"); Arrrr!!! ("What a lovely day! Sun shining..."); Arrrr!!! ("Oh no. Looks like more rain. Are our garments dry? Can we stop using them as a secondary sail yet?")
