Ok, so you made that name because, its a cool looking name? im sure the film made some kind of influence there.

A film was an influence, but it's way way waaaaay better than any of the Matrix trilogy.  Extra brownie points if you can figure out which film.  Hint: I've given a big clue in this thread already.

A Dr. Who reference perhaps?

To all FEer's

At one point in your life you would have been exposed to something that made you say 'Damn you are right, the world is flat!!'

What was that?

For most of these people, it was a hit on the head as a child.

Honestly. Since this is my first time posting, I believe the sheer asshole-ishness of the heathen Copernicus and the blasphemous concept of heliocentrism was my turning point.

Is your sig meant to be ironic, or that just another beautiful moment of internet hilarity blossoming before me?

He had an image before, I guess he saw the stupidity in posting a failure-ridden tirade with a 800x600 "your shipment of failure has arrived" beneath it

It's still TBS in the states, unless we are talking about two different things.

Saw show on TV by some kinda FES (may not have been this one) where they claimed some girl (19 or so) went to the Antartic to find the edge.  She just had her summer clothes (shorts) so decided not to get off the boat.  Went back and got warm clothes.  Returned to antartic and wandered off.  When the boat returned for her the following year, a note saying she had found the edge was on her frozen corpse.  I decided she must have been the most lonely child on the planet and I want to keep her company.

I saw the edge once. Was years ago. I  lost my wallet off it.

If the world was round then some peoples stuff would just fall up/down because I know im standing up now. I'm not falling up.
