I wanted to start out on the boards telling you about myself. I was a member on the SD boards on AOL back in 1996 or so, but I went away in a huff after getting flamed (it was a nice Huff, a 1957 with a V8). I had thinner skin back then I guess. I found the board again about 2000, and although I never felt like becoming a member again, I have been a lurker ever since.
I wanted to get this out there so when someone accuses me of being a sock because I ‘know too much’ for a newbie, I can point to this post. I was ‘there’ for all the big events (except Jack Dean Tyler-somehow I missed that, but I do get the references to the tug ahoy). I know about posting while under the influence of mushrooms, I know about ‘penis ensuing’, about 1920s death rays, about not fighting the hypothetical (and about Don’t Fight the Hypothetical). I read along with the cesario kerfluffle, I read every ATMB thread arguing with the mods. I know about Rio by Duran Duran, and that Abraham Lincoln liked cheddar cheese with his pie.
I finally decided to start a membership because there are some things you just can’t find on the internet, and I have seen the board answer some of the most impossible questions (like one where someone posted a picture of a statue but didn’t know where it was, and within 20 minutes someone provided the answer.) I have some questions that I just can’t find the answer to, and I want to see if you all can help.
So I picked the name “Just Asking Questions” because that is what I want to do, but I know that people who JAQ are usually conspiracy nuts. I am not! I know we landed on the moon, I know Oswald shot Kennedy, and I know how the WTC was brought down.
So again, hello all. Maybe I can answer some questions along the way as well.
JAQ (you can call me Jack)
