    It is Saturday night, you know...Only terribly sad loser lonesome chocolate obsessives stay in :o:
    Loser - No. Chocolate obsessive - Oh yes :teeth:

    IMO weekends don't exist for arts students. They do if they want them to, but Friday and Saturday are the worst days to be out in Cambridge if you can possibly avoid it. Places are generally much more pleasant every other night of the week...

    Where is everybody tonight? (no offence to thread inhabitants :o:)

    ...Habermas it is :getmecoat:

    Aside: How are you finding your sub, Thicky? What's the main motivation for you?
    Someone negged me - EDIT on this thread - but left no name and I thought I had unintentionally offended someone - EDIT EDIT because the negged post was a jokey ironic thingy - so decided to find out who in order to ascertain and potentially apologise. It turned out it was the bitter booby who didn't like an observation/complaint I made a while ago :rolleyes:

    Having discovered that the Back Room is basically for talking about sex/auto-pornography/complaints about non-subs I no longer have motivation for it

    That's nice of you. I probably have a bit of an unreasonable bias in that if a person deserves my going and apologising to them they would have explained the issue they had with me by quoting my post and attacking it. Or PMing me :o:

    I got negged two days ago for being ugly, apparently.

    :five:

    I like the other sub features though. Probably the most significant thing is advertisements. When I joined TSR we didn't have any, and they were only introduced after I had my first sub (from PS Helping riches) So I've not yet forced myself to adjust.

    Harsh! Just general ugliness or were you camwhoring too :p: :rolleyes:

    Advertisements have never bothered me as they're so easy to block (by not focusing or by using browser software )

    It was a randomer who clicked my profile while reading the Emma Watson thread. I suppose I could remove the photo, but I think its funny. What do you mean by camwhoring?

    I was being topical, like. :rolleyes: There is a 'camwhore' thread in the Back Room where people post pictures of themselves, innocently or slightly more revealingly.

    Yeh... I've always been confused by that thread! Why's it called 'Camwhore' when it seems to bear absolutely no relation to anything 'Cam'like :confused:

    ^^ Indeed.

    I love it that Y__ regularly corrects the spelling and understanding of people (generally in this thread!) in English :p: :rolleyes:




    Though I think TheOneWhoMustNotBeNamed and Vapid Slut Magician etc have posted some interesting photos so perhaps... :eek:

    Do I :confused: ? I'm pretty sure I haven't been correcting any spelling mistakes on here (well at least I hope so, as that would be quite an arrogant thing to do - I am pretty sure that there are quite a few grammatical mistakes to be found in my posts).

    Yeh. Makes sense though. He's having to consciously learn and think about rules in the language, whereas we're all lazy.

    Just for you :

    Habe nun, ach! Philosophie,
    Juristerei und Medizin,
    Und leider auch Theologie
    Durchaus studiert, mit heißem Bemühn.
    Da steh ich nun, ich armer Tor!
    Und bin so klug als wie zuvor;
    Heiße Magister, heiße Doktor gar
    Und ziehe schon an die zehen Jahr
    Herauf, herab und quer und krumm
    Meine Schüler an der Nase herum –
    Und sehe, daß wir nichts wissen können!
    Das will mir schier das Herz verbrennen.

    haha sorry not in an overt, arrogant way; merely when responding you use the correct spelling. Technically it is rubbing it in their faces... :p: But since you don't actually inform them :ninja:
