    Oh hi.

    I haven't been around much the last few weeks so I thought now would be a good time for a quick update. I finally made the transition into tech via a Quality Engineer position. The organization is fantastic and I am having a great time learning the ropes. In addition, I finished up my most recent semester with only summer left to go before I finish my masters.

    All of that humble bragging to say I have been a bit busy and I am sure I have missed some riveting discussions, I hope to be back in action soon. Things will calm down shortly.

    You motivated me to look that up only to find, not really surprisingly, that it came from sailing vessels where people literally had to learn the ropes.

    I never actually thought about where that phrase came from. Good find.

    You missed some brilliant discussions about Hitler, the MIC, Trump,
    conspiracies, AOC, Hillark, the Jews, the faked Moon landing, the
    upcoming election, haggis, & the immorality of boinking for fun.

    Sad I missed it. But I will be sure to catch it on the second rotation.

    You also missed a bunch of not-so-brilliant discussions on all of those same topics...and a few more...

    The biggest thing you missed is the continuing frenzy about who is going to win the meaningless last post is the winner thread. Never has so much energy been expended for such a trivial goal. But I'm going to win that thread, of course.

    Welcome back @Quetzal .
    Actually, since you went away, everyone started agreeing on everything, and we unravelled the mysteries of the universe together.
    It was awesome! You really had to be there though....sort of a mob flash of incite thing.
    Then we all agreed that we should delete the thread. It seemed right.

    Sorry you missed it.

    Yeah, the mysteries of the universe were too much for mortal eyes for more than 10 seconds.

    @Revoltingest made it to the buffet first. I can't be held responsible.
