Man, its crazy - 2010 already and the time keeps on slipping away! I haven't been active in a really long time, and have met some wonderful new people having come back - I actually love this site  :D

How many people here still remember the olden days? Are the old timers still around? I know that Mina and Jydeacon are still around, was pleasantly surprised when I ran into Hezekiel today  :D What about the others? Santamaria05, Godislove, Vassilios, Iqbal, Hos Erof? Orthodox11, Stavros, Anglian? Coptic Pharaoh? Coptic Servent? PopeKyrilos? why? sandrahanna? mnc_hnn? Christrules?

Anyone still here in this eternal chasm?  ;D

  • I'm not here.  I moved.  Yet, if I write, I must exist.  If I exist, I must still be here.

    What a quandry?  I think I have thrown my self into an existential dilemma.

    Not necessarily - to quote Descartes, "I think therefore I am" suggests that the condition for existence is thinking. Which may not necessarily correspond to writing (i.e. it is possible to write without any thought).

    Not that I'm in any way suggesting that applies to you  ;D Nice to see you're still active man  :D
  • I think I've been insulted.  I believe this calls for sabers at 20 paces.

    I challenge you to a duel!

    But, then again, I do not exist.  How can I challenge you to a duel?  It's difficult floating around in cyberspace
    without existence.  I wish I was real.  I wish was in Kansas.

    Oh no, you haven't been insulted  ;D And as for the sabres (Gah, sabers is an American misspelling), they're too messy nowadays, the preferred method of single combat is with political bilboards (usually with a member of the opposition in a sinister pose).

    Not as difficult as pondering your own existence. And why would you want to live in Kansas? As I understand it (based solely on The Wizard of Oz) all of Kansas are crop fields, and the only thing of note to occur are cyclones.
  • Cyclones, in the United States are a type of flavored ice (sorry, flavoured) or a roller coaster.

    We call them tornadoes in the MidWest United States.

    There are many things in Kansas:  there is football (not the European Soccer), basketball, we have corrupt politicians, and we have the True Wizard of Oz, and a lot of short people.

    I think tasbeha.org should have a space to rent as billboard posts, with associated rental fees.  This would be helpful for "fundaraizing".

    Please excuse my Americanism, I retract my "sabers" for the sake of "sabres".  Anyway:  'he who lives by the sabre will die by the sabre'.  Our Lord was not British, so I guess He used "sword" instead.  However, if He were American, it would be "swoord", because Americans cannot pronounce 'sword'.

    Oh,  ;D. Yeah, we call them tornadoes too (not that we have them). It looks like my attempt at American nomenclature has failed  :P

    Sounds a lot like the South of England actually. Although who is the True Wizard of Oz?

    Haha, sword is used in that verse in Britain more frequently than sabre actually  ;D

    I guess it is to be expected that certain nameless countries (*ahem* America *ahem*) wouldn't have developed the breadth of their language much since the time of the Tower of Babel  :P
  • One of my favorite jokes:

    What do you call someone that speaks three languages?...trilingual
    What do you call someone that speaks two languages?...bilingual
    What do you call someone that speaks only one language?... AMERICAN
  • :P

    Lord have mercy  ;D
  • Does anyone know how I can contact vassilios?
  • ^ i guess PM him. Maybe his email is written on his profile info.

    07' member  ;D
  • He doesn't have a profile unfortunately :(. That's the difficulty- we had been in contact before, but it was always PM and not email correspondence.
