I'll ask here since it will be easier to see maybe - for you TFER's how long does it usually take for a post to get greenlight, if it gets posted over here at all?

Nice try, but you're not a TFER. See there is this little sign next to your name when you are a TFER. I'm blonde but I wasnt born today, or whatever :P

Shame on you, trying to take advantage of a liter!

Oh, and Shyla, why don't you come find out for yourself how we roll in TF? ;)

I heard a really lame joke about 25 years ago that has something to do with a rope walking into a bar, (insert filler I don't remember), punchline is "No. I'm afraid not".

/I'm sure your knees are stinging from the vigorous slapping

Three strings walk into a bar. The first string goes up to the bartender and asks for three whiskeys. The bartender looks down at the string and says, "Sorry, buddy - we're not allowed to serve drinks to strings in here."

The second string steps up to see what's the matter. "We're paying customers, and we demand three whiskeys!" he grumbles.

The bartender says, "Listen, fella - I'm just following the rules. No strings allowed in here."

The two strings sulk back to the table and tell the third string, who really gets angry. "I know how to handle this!" he growls as he begins to double over and tie himself into a messy tangle. Swaggering up to the bar with strands flailing in every direction, he shouts, "Bartender! I want three whiskeys, and I want them NOW!"

The bartender casts a suspicious look and asks, "Hey... Aren't you one of those strings that came in here earlier?"

The tangled-up little guy shrugs and states confidently, "Nope, I'm a frayed knot!"

Shyla: and holiday_inn_in_cambodia:

I'm going to laughing at your exchanges for the rest of the day.

I bungee jumped once. I was so sick from medical treatments and pretty sure I was suicidal at the time. It was pretty cool, but it took three weeks before my nuts hung properly. Would not try it again (I'm sort of scared of heights).

2009-02-22 07:10:44 AM  
And THAT is the one reason why I haven't bungee jumped.

...that and that whole fear of heights thing.

/plus something like this might happen.

/$5 buys a chance to wade through all the crap that isn't green-lit. Yay.

Is that guy covered with bloody shart? I mean it looks like blood blasted out of his ass.

It's all about timing.
 
2009-02-22 09:30:32 AM  
ah the old "poop yourself" bungee jump.


Remind me to go before I bungee jump, if I ever decide to jump off a perfectly good cliff.
 
2009-02-22 10:34:03 AM  
And the jumper, not learning from the errors of mechanical engineering, will jump again!

Wow, my first greenlight in a while where I manage not to make a spelling error. Woo hoo.

PS: Shyla - I don't know how it takes to get greenlit either - I posted this, then about an hour or two later it wasn't greenlit, and I went to sleep.

They showed it on The Amazing Race last weekend. One team member had to jump it. Freaked me the hell out as I've got a horrendous fear of heights.

Wow, the place in TFA is where I went bungee jumping.
