DID SOMEBODY SAY: BLUNT INSTRUMENT OF DEATH?! DON'T MIND IF I DO!




...Oh, and welcome back Vman.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

:D I don't know you Askold, but I like you already!

And thanks. Though I have been something of a regular in the FSTDT quote archives, so I haven't entirely been away. I just didn't visit this forum for a long while.

So...  *Breaths in heavily*

After almost two years of reading FSTDT and occasionally leaving comments, I felt it was time to create an account there, so may as well here.

So Hi Everybody! :)

About me: I'm an atheist (raised reformed christian), I'm Swiss and I'm almost in my 30s (damn!)
For funs I do music and origami. My political views are somewhat left of middle.

I adapted my user name because the first FSTDT quote I was commenting on, had the OP saying something like: "AAAARGGHHH!! IM NOT JUST SOME APE!!! IM A GODCHILD!!" or shit.
So I thought: "well, i'm just some ape and feeling fine about it"
As an avatar, I tried to upload the first picture I found by imagegoogling "some ape", a cool gorilla btw, but somehow it didn't work.

In Switzerland, there is not such a big problem with fundies but the conspiracy stuff is growing lately. I'm worried. There's politicians in the Nationalrat that deny climate change! I know, you've seen worse!

Eeerrmm, you know.
Ask me anything you'd like to know more about me..

Greetings

Some Ape

P.S. Forgeeve mye inglush skillz ;)

Oh, I forgot to say: I'm not exactly a scientist. But I'm a sound engineer. So if youre having questions about acoustics stuff, ask me.

So did you download the picture to your computer first, or were you trying to link it from where the picture was originally located?

If you didn't download it first, it's probably better to do so.  Then..

(I'll go through the whole procedure just in case:)

Profile>Modify Profile>Forum Profile.
Tick the item on the list that says "Upload an avatar"
Click on the "browse" botton and locate the avatar image on your computer
Click "Open" and it should upload it

Does any of that help?

Thanks, Dr. Weird. I did exactly that, but on an iPhone, not on a computer!

I've never tried on an iPhone, so yeah, that might have something to do with it.   :-\

You say you're Swiss, so I have to ask: do you think in German, French, or Italian? Or all three at once?
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

All three at once   ;D that would be hilarious!
No, see, the thing is this. We do have three official languages* but not everyone speaks every language. French (though it is a bit different than french in France) is spoken in the western part of Switzerland. Italian is spoken in Tessin/Ticino in the south. The rest of the country speaks Swiss german, which is again different from Germany german and comes in a variety of dialects. Though I learned French in school, I almost never use it and would probably embarass myself speaking it :)
I don't know any Italian apart from "Que cazzo fai?" (WTF are you doing?) :D

*Actually four. There is a minority in the eastern part that speak Rumantsch.

I'm a newbie to these forums but I have been part of the community on the main page for quite a while now. I used to go under the nickname Yuu. I disappeared for a few months when I got busy with college. But I came back to see the change in ownership and the re-merger. Decided since we were starting fresh (and I lost my old password months ago anyway) that I'd make a new account on both sites.

Hi, I'm not exactly a newbie and I'm a regular contributor to FSTDT but I've been away for a while, haven't posted on the forums since Shy took over so I wanted to come say hi to those I fight alongside of.
