Thread: Lurking for a year.. might as well say hello

    Default Lurking for a year.. might as well say hello

    How did you find CS? I was looking for some decent commentary on BYU.

    How did you choose your moniker? I live in Las Vegas. My name is Allen

    What do you do (other than read CS)? Push paper and defend against frivolous lawsuits. The more lawsuits I get to defend, the more I get paid. Hooray for frivolity!

    How many time zones have you lived in? 5, all in North America.

    What are your sports loyalties? Went to BYU for a year and half, so I support the football team. Went to UNLV for 7 years, so I support the Running Rebels. Never been to a UNLV football game, never plan to go.

    "Commentary" on BYU... not discussion... Supoorts the REH-BULS.

    Things aren't looking good for you Allen.

    On the plus side, it looks like your office is on the same street as mine, so we should probably be civil.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    So after a year off lurking, what was the imputence that made you create an account? The abortion or climate change thread?

    Welcome. Always glad to have a larger Vegas representation.

    After years of waiting, nothing came. He realized he was looking in the wrong place so he joined. He's a reasonable man, get off his case.

    Speaking of The Vegas, why does falafel's location say Las Wegas? Is that actually something people there say?

    I quoted that line to my then-girlfriend when she asked me where her engagement ring was.

    Its something a friend of mine used to say. I should probably change it to Las Begas, since that is something people here actually say.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    I created an account because it got really irritating when someone would post a picture that I couldn't see. Seriously.

    I've written a few posts, but decided not to put them up because I decided I didn't really know enough about the topic to meaningfully contribute.

    Probably a riff off of "Lost Wages," which is the response locals often have to put up with when they tell someone where they live. Well, that and the questions about whether we live in/near a casino. (I do, by the way. Bellagio. Penthouse Suite. Me and Steve Wynn hang out all the time.)

    How do you feel now that you realize that the pictures were just cat butts?

    Fortunately, they're not ALL catt butts. Occasionally, there's a great shot of KVN rocking a thoroughly non-Honor code compliant beard.
