Forum and In-Joke Guide

Why bother with any other forum?
Forum rules
We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

This might just be the most groan-worthy thing I've ever seen you post.

Well, okay, fine. But it cracks the top 30.

You love it, you want it, and you would miss it if it were to go away.

Despite how it may seem, this was a rather nice time for him.

What's that? No. You're right. Nice time is Central European Time.

The thing that's funniest to me is that British currency isn't known as "green."

Goddamn Europeans trying to tell us what time it is. They sit down to lunch when WE tell them it's lunchtime. They have ideas above their station.

Dalty owns somewhere between three and five European countries. The line gets blurred.

Yes--quite assertively, even, and I think it's probably gotten more pronounced since I lived there 1998-2002.

It's quite a bit more complicated than just thinking we aren't European. Highly charged political debate. Funny thing is, more and more Europeans are starting to think like us re: the EU.

The EU was cool when it was an exclusive club for rich kids. These days, they let just about anybody in.

If everyone is in the EU, is anyone *really* in the EU?

If you like youth unemployment hitting the roof, growth going backwards and a bunch of people you didn't get a chance to vote for interfering in everything plus ignoring huge elements of the principles of democracy then it's full of win.

Oh yeah, and having another vote if the first one doesn't give the answer the ruling class wanted. It's something.... but it ain't democracy.

I updated my post on the first page to include an entry on "out of cruelty" and to alphabetize all the entries.

I found a reference to huffy flouncing that seems to pre-date these others.

On a forum for English speakers in Germany, going back to 2007. Hmmm...
