Why is Westeros So Important To You And What Keeps You Coming Back?

111 posts in this topic

I've been reading this series since it first came out in 1996--I was on maternity leave and saw the first book in the bookstore. "Oo! Ice and Fire! Ragnarok!" Bought it on the spot and read it in a day because when you're home with a new baby you don't sleep anyway.

So, after almost 22 years I'd love to see how it ends. I'll probably be a grandmother by then!

I read vastly more than I post. Mostly I visit here to learn new ideas and perspectives from a whole passel of really fucking smart people who enjoy discussing stuff I'm interested in.

Holy shit, just realised I've been here for twelve years now, almost exactly. I don't exactly post much but this place has pretty much become part of my daily routine now.

Don't ask me existential questions like this after so long (18 years). I might start to cry.

What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable  object? :D

Lurked for awhile and then finally signed up. Really enjoyed the LmL history threads and sologdin rants, poked around the Games forum a bit, and now I keep coming back because the Pony Queen has tarnished my soul.

She does seem to have that affect on people. Stop corrupting your weak plebs, @Pony Queen Jace.

we’re not subtle about it dude

:lmao:

If you still win the day, it would have been yous.

 

As for myself, I could write a long sappy post about why I keep coming back, but the core truth is that this is one of only a few places on the internet that's sane. Talking politics and sports elsewhere is horrifying, but here there are a lot of thoughtful individuals who can make intelligent and respectful arguments. You don't find that very often.

Also the fantasy sports leagues, and my unending need to break Jace and @Jaime L.

One day. One day.....

Because without this board i wouldn't know how often women wash their bra's (not enough in my unsoiled opinion).

Just realised i've here over 3,000 days and have yet to hit 4,500 posts.  I need to up my game, less than 1.5 a day is pathetic.

Hey, don't forget the advice about what to do when a cellphone has been dropped on a pile of poo!

When that is your most important and memorable post in nearly 9 years, you begin to think you may have been wasting your life.

There were many from which to choose (93 percent of them involving beer, mushy peas or Newcastle United), but poo always wins in the end.

You must not have participated during the NHAW.  It was like Forum Games, only not. 

How do you think I got up to MY post count, hmm? :leer:

I recall losing many posts a few years back when the boards were going through changes.

 

Reasons for sticking:

Enjoy general and entertainment forums that have maintained very good activity.

To be amazed of how some topics in the books and show forums just never die.

Joined in 2012 so as I am actually interested how the boards will be if/when Winds of Winter gets release.

This post made me start to re-read one of MG's NHAW reviews, and now I keep having an Ad for Hats worn by barely clothed models.   

 

ps  I miss Relic's arse.
