Alternate latrine forum rules list

Alternate latrine forum rules list

Postby caleban » Wed Apr 09, 2008 8:49 am

In the spirit of humorous diversion, meaningless drivel, good humor, and even
letting off steam, a place to propose rules where there are none and hopefully
won't be. The proposed rule should relate to member's posting-trait in some way,
be humorous, and not a personal jab. If you have a doubt about the latter,
apologize in advance.

I will use ScaRZ first, since I have doubt about whether or not this type of humor
will be offensive to him. I apologize as it isn't intended that way. Of the members
on this site, I instinctively trust ScaRZ. He tries to LIVE to a higher standard, and
it shines through him. I also know he will not zing me either way, but I do not want to offend.

The challenge is to make a latrine play-rule using a posting trait in a
humorous manner. If it is intended to be insulting it doesn't belong.
If a posting trait in and of itself seems insulting, it is probably educational.

Alternate latrine forum rules list - begin:

(For ScaRZ) Not allowed to brandish crucifixes at other members to see if they are "vamped".
(Use a mirror for that)

(for myself) Not allowed to chew gum when everyone else has run out.

(for AD) Not allowed to compose mission reports using only song lyrics.

(for Zep Tepi) Not allowed to distribute naked photos of command staff. (I see you replaced the old avatar)

(for ryguy) Not allowed to post such that when printed and bound, thrown down the stairs, will damage the floor tiles.

(for Ray) Not allowed to tell members they will be "first against the wall when the revolution comes." (even if its true)

(for uberarcanist) Not allowed to announce "all your base are belong to me!" when you think you have a winning, insiteful observation.

(for lost_shaman) Not allowed to issue safety procedures regarding zombie or UAP attacks.

(for Shawnna) Not allowed to abduct, anally probe, and return naked any fellow member. (takes NO prisoners)

(for Gary) Not allowed to claim "Back to the Future" was scientifically accurate.

(for torbjon) Not allowed to throw water balloons through the Stargate.

(for Chorlton) That also applies for "mooning" thru the Stargate.

(2nd for Gary) Not allowed to run naked through the corridors screaming, "Heisenberg was wrong!"


Just for starters. If you don't have a rule yet, keep posting. It will happen.
Almost forgot. Guess who this is:

(Guess) Not allowed to taunt using Shakespearean insults.

Oh, yes ! Thats the reason for the long preamble to the thread. But the "payoff" can be impressive and well worth the risk. For example, take another look at your rule for Shawnna and her response. It has been my experience that no grievance is immune to neutralization when confronted from both sides with humor. When you reach the point that both sides can laugh and joke about it......all's well that ends well. That is my understanding of "burying the hatchet"...for good !

Kinda fun. But I admit to being pretty dense sometimes....I don't get mine.


My apology Ray. If you try something this borderline, be sure to err on the
side of humor, not accuracy. So read yours again with that in mind and see a few of your latest posts regarding your demonstrated "canary in the mine-shaft" affinity for a certain cartoon character from the past.

Hey if you don't like me, just remember I come from a broken home (livejournal).


And on the 14th of Nov. you went to ANOTHER one. But here, the breaks are light and structural. Properly done, a little carpenter shop in here can make it better than before. But everyone needs to pitch in and sand and repaint.

Would have answered sooner but I was caught off guard when ryguy caught on so quick. Fell out of my chair and got logged off when my head hit the key board from HIS humor. He even "downloaded" the cheat-code on why you include yourself.

OK, now I will try for a "two-fer" this time

(for dazdude) Not allowed ____________________________________________.


Only dazdude can see that I think....but he needs to either RV it, use the Force, or a
bottle of wine, whichever works best. If nothing works, ask MikeJamieson who
prolly has a copy of it in his "stack of stuff".

[DISCLAIMER: This IS personal!]

(for caleban) Not allowed to tell anyone that somebody got “a nice little present from NASA” when asked to keep it to yourself. (loose lips sink ships and could lead to all of somebody’s hard work being “inadvertently” deleted)

(for lost_shaman) Not allowed to let anyone or anything keep you from reaching your full potential on your own.

(for Shawnna) Not allowed to delete “PlayerFour.pdf”. (just in case somebody else didn’t keep an extra copy or two)

(for torbjon) Not allowed to refuse delivery of large refrigerated packages with no return address and marked with the following international symbol…

[END DISCLAIMER]

(for everyone 1) Not allowed to trust anything or anyone intimately associated with ATS. (trust me it’s a VERY bad place)

(for everyone 2) Not allowed to let our individual differences and quirks discourage us from collaborating in the Neverending Quest for Truth…

(for everyone 3) [redacted]

(as long as I’m making wishes I figure it’s wise to save the last one for myself just in case the other two come true)

No worries, Caleban. I wasn't offended. I just plain didn't get it! :)

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh....... :oops: Now I REALLY feel stupid, cuz I still don't get it. I suppose at this point I should tell you that I was not allowed to watch cartoons as a child, so this latest allusion is lost on me. However, my childhood cartoon ban would probably explain why my favorite shows these days are ones like South Park, Family Guy, the Simpsons, and American Dad. 8)

I know. I worked on yours a bit more than others. I suspect you share a
"real" trait with me and was looking for correlation. I sometimes dig too
deep and overlook the obvious as a result.

Now I REALLY feel stupid, cuz I still don't get it.


That is the reason for the apology. See how deep you went digging ?
Look at your recent exchange with alantree and then look at my rule
for you. Did I snapshot your "reaction" accurately ? I think the right
"feel" is humorously described, but only you can really tell.

Torb, they probably couldn't throw you out of the Army (assuming you were in it) for being crazy, because you are so crazy even YOU probably realize it. :lol:
