Well you've come to the right place. Lots of chocolate covered bacon to be had here.

Stuck on page 335, The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
Did somebody turn on cookies?

Did someone say COOKIES?

actually, I've got the same problems. Stuck on page 335, but it seems we can all post. I think Zoltan has been fiddling with the controls again. Seems he can't keep his hands off anything! Especially the chocolate covered bacon.

And it seems the ghost of our dearly departed Karty was here. Miss you GKR!

Hope everyone was able to get into the "nice or naughty" room ... And did Jeeves ever come back? This place has <cough> fallen apart without the butler. Damned cobwebs... <cough> Someone needs to stoke the fire. And fetch some more chocolate... and bacon... and proper drinks. SERVICE! We need SERVICE!

It's so hard to find good help these days.

I think Zoltan replaced the bacon with chocolate covered goat latkes with patchouli sauce... We had a small problem with the fermented yak milk going bad, which required the entire 6th Gear Lounge to be evacuated as a Hazmat site... I'm not sure the other loungers know it's been cleaned.
They didn't find the cave though

Yeah I was lost for a long time. Couldn't find my way out. After everybody left that fermented yak milk got to me. I passed out and woke to walking Salami slices demanding equal rights and the Bacon slices arguing about who is sliced thicker.

Mad house I tell ya o_O

My interests are mainly selfish...If I reply enough times to my own thread, I'll get into 6th and then the lounge!

So here goes: I think there are big cushy chairs and couches, with bowls of unlimited buffalo wings and Chex Mix right next to every seat. I think they have live bands everyday, like U2, the Stones, and Aerosmith. I think Courtney Love is not allowed in the lounge but Dave Grohl is. I think Jimmy Hoffa is there. I think the drinks are free (but only in moderation ), and when you drive in, everyone knows your name!
Figured I would bump it...keep this funny thread alive...
Sure...it can be hard to load...but heck...if enough folks complain... Maybe the management might fix the loading issue someday!!

yeah...a site that fires the mods....kinda says it all..
we are just a check for the owners...
the folks that did FREE work were TOLD TO LEAVE....
guess a vendor got mad after the GrayRaven incident with Waymotorworks....so they were considered a liability.....
Just a guess...He hasn't told me the details...but the time-frame is right...

Been thrown out of swankier places I must admit.

Although the service use to be quite good back in the day.

Particularly the hot chocolate.

Cheers,

Charlie
