None of us could ever join that; we're all far too serious.
Exactly. Mayo, chain restaurants, teal as a clothing color for men, and tipping is serious stuff.

Greetings again, not sure if y’all would remember me, but I was one of the originals (so now maybe I could be called a new original, which pretty much makes me Spinal Tap). I left around I forget when, 2008 or 9 or so because I just couldn’t keep up and wanted to spend less time online. That eventually went by the wayside though for various reasons, and I’ve been commenting mainly on BoingBoing the last few years, at first mostly because there are a lot of great people there with a great wealth of cultural depth and breadth and it was a break from libertarian politics. I’d try to nudge politically once in a while, and while there are always reliable language/thought police after a while you realize most there are reasonable about context as long as they don’t think you’re a troll. There are a few interesting liberty minded people there, but still, it would be nice not to have to gear up for a fight every time I wanted to stick my neck up out of the foxhole, and they are pretty obsessed with keeping the baddies out. And the politics-to-interesting fun culture/tech stuff ratio has been off the charts since Trump.

Which leads to the topic at hand, I kept up with H&R and occasionally read the comments and watched as the new normal after we left gave way to the current wave of noxious jerks who are an embarrassment to freedom. I am kind of amused at the tantrums over Soave and all the foot stomping, and that made me remember about this lovely place (not that I ever forgot about y’all personally). I think H&R will be better for the self-purge and hopefully with the people who left not using up all the oxygen in the room will allow for a new generation of commenters to find liberty minded discussion.

Anyways, it's amazing and heartening to see this place still going with all the familiar names and I hope everyone's wildest dreams from the last time I saw you 10 years ago have come true.

We would appreciate it, however, if you and all other recent and returned folks took a few moments to read the comments from all the threads for the last seven or eight years or so, just so we don't have to repeat ourselves.

If there's on thing we pride ourselves on here, it's not rehashing the same arguments over and over and over....

Dead Elvis! Nice to see you're back. Especially after seeing your front.
HyOhhhhhh! :)
I thought you had finally rolled off that log. Now that you've washed ashore, pull up a chair and make yourself at home. You'll have to sit at the little table though. We gave your seat to tr0g.

To be honest, lots of Gryllbabbies pretty much WAS my wildest dream.

Welcome back! I'm so glad you're back!

Babbies? Oh, for some reason I read that as Baddies when Mo posted.

Thanks y'all! And congrats on the hopefully-not baddie babbies.

I just have a few burning questions I compiled: Did Ellie ever land a job that would pay her in kittens? Did Number 6 master YYZ? Has Thoreau finally discovered the optics for imaging the human soul? Has Jennifer founded a free and independent media that doesn’t suck gov’t cock? Did Jadagul land a gig on Dancing with the Stars? Has dhex finally been named NYC’s poet laureate/DJ? And most of all, has anyone been fucked by Julian Sanchez?

Nope. Had a kid though. Well, not me...my wife at the time did. I was involved in the planning stages, but being more of a big picture guy, I submitted the blueprints and left the actual construction to her. She did well with that, and although we're no longer married, we share a freaking awesome kiddo.

Yes, Number 6 became an EMT! Or wait, maybe that was before you left, d_e. I forget now.

I have displaced someone? I would feel bad if I wasn't a borderline sociopath. The kids table may be more fun, dead_elvis, but all the booze is over here with the big people.

I am certainly hoping that elephant doesn't involve something horrible or anyone dying (other than J sub D, who I read about at H&R, R.I.P.). I figure at some point if I start asking questions I'll step on a raw nerve ("how's the kid doing" "he got killed by a drunk driver" etc.), so apologies in advance.

Oh I remember Scout! Glad to hear she's (am I remembering that right?) awesome (totally expected it) and sorry about the marriage, I was rooting for you guys to make it, but I understand it doesn't always work out.

'Fraid not. As of nowadays I'm unhappily under-employed (though hoping to change that), happily married (and intending to keep that as is), and adjusting to life in a kudzu-infested suburb of Atlanta (not that Atlanta has any other kind).
