    Im bored. Could someone pls start a thread that's super exciting... like the roller coaster of all threads? Maybe one with laughing and fighting and possibly a zombie attack? I don't like scary things... forget the zombie. Maybe instead, interesting revelations... that would be awesome, and huge run on sentences and then someone corrects that person for being on a writing site and not using proper punctuation, then that person responds by insulting their grandmother, then hubpages bans everyone on that thread, and Mark Ewbie comes in and tells us it's our own faults for not transferring to Bubblews? I don't know, I don't want to pre-plan the thread... it should take on a life of it's own, but all the threads out there aren't holding my attention and I really want to insult someone's grandmother or at least their nanny. Why don't you tell us about your first time, without getting banned or... tell us your most embarrassing moment? Have you gotten tired of reading this yet? I hate long diatribes about nothing, but look at me go! Ok, I'll get out of the way now. Anybody? Anybody?

      Beth, I have 2 forum threads called Forumania and let's have some DANGEROUS fun, folks that you may want to participate in. I have another, exciting forum thread called The  ULTIMATE Reality Show.  Now, how's THAT for EXCITING forums.   Glad to be of HELP.........

        To be honest, I was very tempted to post on one of those, but sometimes the things that come out of my mouth... hmmm... I should refrain.

        As far as rabble rousing, or dabbling in brambles... or whatever Johhny said... Ive never done such a thing in my life.

        And to Epson, don't you ever let me catch the Justin Timberlakes of this world in perimeters they were not preempted to qualify for, and I mean that with every fiber of my super salad.

      Allow me to help you get the ball rolling. 

      Why would you say you can make the word, and then contradict yourself and say you can't?  You can't have it both ways sister.  That's why your religion causes so much conflict. 

      Does your grandmother know you behave this way?  What would she have to say about that?

      That's what happens when you try to moralize while playing Scrabble. Scrabble should be kinder and gentler with no moralizing while you try to prove your mental superiority over the other players.

        Scrabble is neither kind nor gentle. It is a war of words and you must battle cheaters, savants, the intelligent and unintelligent alike. It is not a game for the faint of heart. Except grandmothers.

    Here's something that's been bothering me, Beth.  I wasn't going to say anything, but since you're looking for drama:

    Why do you keep changing your avatar?  I find it very disconcerting, and, frankly, when I sign in to the forums and see you have a different avatar from the day before it's difficult for me to accomplish anything else for the rest of the day.

    First you had some business looking thing going on, and I was like, "This new girl means business!" 

    Then you changed to a pensive-looking picture for a bit, and I was like, "How profound.  She must be finding herself as a writer." 

    Then you went back to the business thing, and I was like, "Okay, she's reeling it back in and getting serious again." 

    Then, for a brief period earlier this week, you were Batgirl. I was so excited and all like, "Batgirl! Yes!"  But then you changed that, and if that's not playing with my mind I don't know what is.

    Now you have a mischievous-looking thing going on, almost to say, "My Hubs are packed with mirth and whimsy, just like me."

    I don't know what your game is, but I think we all deserve an explanation.  So out with it.  Is this some shrewd marketing ploy, or something more sinister?  Why are you messing with us?

    And don't go bringing up that my avatar looks like a young Hank Hill, because that's not the issue here.

      The truth is, I get sick of my pic. If I had to pick one, I'd pick Batgirl. She's awesome. Ive wanted to be her since I was a little girl. You're extremely funny. I love funny ppl. I think I have an infection in my tooth and it's gone to my brain. I feel... not right. I hope I don't say anything that makes ppl hate me... maybe that's why I change my pic... so ppl will forget who says all the annoying things and maybe I will have a second chance to win them over.

            Don't worry.  That feeling is just parts of your brain shutting down one by one.  It happened to me once and I ended up okay.  You don't need as much of your brain as everyone says. 

            In all seriousness, if you're really concerned you should probably see a dentist.  If you really do have a tooth infection it could cause issues in other parts of your body.

                  Let me tell you how to make that pay off.  My example is true, and involves a quarter.  To set the stage, I was managing an automotive establishment with a wooden floor.

                  Quarter = 25 cents

                  Roofing nail to solder to quarter = 2 cents

                  Watching people try at first to pick up the quarter by the counter, then try to nonchalantly kick it free, and seeing the confusion and frustration build as they decide if they should comment, inquire or let it go = priceless. 

                  Of course a quarter was worth a good deal more back then.  wink

              I appreciate the encouragement Rochelle.  It truly is a time issue, with a long story some here know.  I have been under increasing pressure though, from some who have followed my forum posts since I joined last year, to produce some hubs.  Some of those posts, particularly earlier ones, meet all the criteria of a hub on their own.  Images are another issue, copyrights, etc.  I could do my own photos or even artwork, but again, it just takes time.  I actually have some things written that I could just review and edit as needed.  I appreciate those who have asked, and will see what I can do.  Thank you.

                You are right, it takes time, but you don't need to wait until all of your ducks are lined up. One of the beautiful things about HubPages is that you can ALWAYS edit to your heart's content. I started with some articles that I had  previously published in print-- and added the 'bells and whistles" to them later. Others have used school papers, or other personal writings to get started.
                Don't resist the urge, but don't give in to pressure.

      Always curious how beginning the assent of the short chronological segment could stir both eagerness and trepidation, she consigned herself to it's inevitability.  Just 84 short hours from it's inception, at it's pinnacle, there would be degrees of relief at a task half conquered, coexisting with pressure to accomplish preset goals and obligations for the span, within the 84 hours remaining.   84 hours that whimsically switched from seeming short or long, depending on the thought applied.  Finally, once the end of the prescribed portion arrives, indulging in reflection and assessment of the fruit it bore, whether positive or negative, relief, pride and disappointment  will divide the spoils.  And so begins anew the familiar cycle.  Life is a paradox.

    I have a new idea to belch life into this thread once more ( awaken the beast)/
    What if, since this thread started with the wording "roller coaster". We all talk about our worst roller coaster ride ever. I will go first, then we can listen to crickets till someone else goes.
    It was about to go out of the station and a thunderstorm started. An emergency brake flew on and we stopped mid departure. The catch, explained the conductor, is that we all have to go around to unlock the seats.
    Terrified I slammed my eyes shut and amid lightning and thunder we zoomed into the night.
    Around turn 4 the power went out and we lost the control breaks.
    Two rounds through the whole thing and 5 vomiting passengers later, the fire men and park officials got it stopped by force. We were all given free park passes for a year and free unlimited rides in the park.
    Me and my siblings were begging for another round. My mother was not amused.

      Wow, did you make that up? So scary! What park was this?

      I have three... I will make them brief.
      My first roller coaster, I rode with my dad. I was crying at the beginning and by the end I was smiling from ear to ear and asked if we could go again.

      My second, also with my dad, our size difference made the waist bar fit with a large gap between me and the bar. We got to the top of the ride and it slammed us both to one side. His weight pushed me up out of my seat and I was standing as we started to go down the large drop... not fun.

      Third, not a roller coaster but a spinning, individual caged ferris wheel. I was in it with my older siblings... one of those side of the road carnivals... and the ride broke. It stopped with us at the top, our cage upside down and a giant hole (why I have no idea...) at the top of our cage, however being flipped, we hung upside down with the hole under us. Once again, my seat belt, dangerously loose... and all the blood rushing to my head for what felt like hours. I could see the ground below with my name on it and I hung on to the bar for dear life.

      All in all, not pleasant, but still... like life... a part of the living is the threats that constantly loom. The good is in finding your footing again. smile

        Wow, makes myne(mine) seem timid. LOL. Yes myne(mine) was real, cant remember that park it was in central PA. The ride was twister. They investigated and found an auto break shoe on the ground, apparently knocked off by wind gusts. Part of the ride was broken for a while.
