I've met some of the best people I'll probably ever know.

I've also learned what hentai is.  And all sorts of other things I never needed to know about.  ;D

Yeah, SCN has introduced to a ripe cornucopia of shit I really didn't want to know. I've met lots of interesting people, learned about Razor's dungeon, learned about and watched movies I might not have otherwise. And yeah, I'll have to look back to see when I first joined SCN as well.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I'm pretty sure Bond doesn't sleep either.

Im fairly certain that Bond isn't really a man per-sei.  But an entity that has existed from the beginning of the internet to pass along knowledge to helpless nubes like us.

Cant say Ive learned as much as some of you guys.  Just that im not alone in some of my more geeky exploits.

Learned I don't know nearly as much about trek as I thought I did. Also noticed that I'm one of the few people that actually liked Voyager and Enterprise.

Whenever moments like this come up, when we celebrate what a jolly fine place this is, I always share this old topic, and now I've uploaded it in its entirely for you to enjoy how SCN used to look like, and what folk used to dwell there--it's odd how many of those old regulars don't show up anymore, but ah well I assume they did manage to get a life ;)

I'm not a deviant, nor a pervert. Now I'm off to watch Hentai, while downloading "Pregnant Teens Orgy " volumes 12-34.

Was that the one involving Hobbes and Kestra? That was hysterical.

Ahem *points to avatar* yes it was another chat like that that sparked off an entire inanimate twincest topic that spanned three web boards and several discussions after I got started.
