Shoutbox

eastman: there was a website full of Lucas Electric jokes by that name, here is another one - www.mez.co.uk/lucas.html Sept 25, 2022 2:34:11 GMT
RufusScorpius: Lucas tried to make vacuum cleaners back in the 70s. It was the only product they made that didn't suck. Sept 24, 2022 9:23:03 GMT
Ouroboros: It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament to
repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they met too much
resistance
Sept 24, 2022 2:03:51 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Yeah, I googled it. Nevertheless, Ozzy! Sept 23, 2022 16:52:26 GMT
RufusScorpius: Lucas Electric invented the 3 position headlamp switch: OFF, FLICKER, and SMOULDER Sept 23, 2022 15:59:07 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Wasn't that Ozzy? Sept 23, 2022 6:57:03 GMT
eastman: Lucas, Prince of Darkness Sept 23, 2022 3:03:54 GMT
RufusScorpius: I would, but then I'd have to buy more and I'm too cheap to do that Sept 22, 2022 15:54:24 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Drink faster! Sept 22, 2022 12:44:09 GMT
RufusScorpius: I don't like the traditional large German beer steins: the beer gets warm and flat by the time you get halfway through it. Probably OK for the English because they like warm beer (UK refrigerators are made by Lucas Electric) Sept 22, 2022 11:21:12 GMT *
carbon: I looked it up...sounds like a heck of a party Andi. Glad you are still with us. Sept 21, 2022 23:00:53 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: ... so far ... Sept 21, 2022 21:45:45 GMT
The Levin Lance: Congrats on still being with the living, Andi. Sept 21, 2022 21:33:12 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Hah, I just survived Munich Oktoberfest 2022 (so far) aka Bavarian Braincell Massacre aka 2022 Corona Superspread Event! Sept 21, 2022 21:09:41 GMT *
fionn: got a message from ther457 stating: "I Purchase some items from smith09 somedays ago and he has Sword of Danu that his trying to get rid off, kindly text him to know maybe it's still available... Here's his Email mikescott6678@gmail.com." looks like spam Sept 21, 2022 13:24:04 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Posts can be reported directly to the mods with the drop-down menu right of "Quote" but I don't know if this works with messages too (all deleted itm). Sept 21, 2022 12:42:51 GMT
stormmaster: yup i recieved the same message from that person ther457 just saying they have a migration sword for sale Sept 21, 2022 3:58:16 GMT
txhighlander: Yep definitely spam. Sept 21, 2022 3:35:19 GMT
jblakey: Just as a warning, I got a message from ther457 about a seller who had a set of Nami fittings. The email that I was given belongs to a known scammer (https://www.halloweenforum.com/threads/scammer-warning.212763/). Sept 20, 2022 17:27:10 GMT
zabazagobo: I can agree with that. Forums tend to be better for more involved prose communication, it's clunky on FB. I only made an alias on FB for sword groups. Never had a personal one, I've researched the behavioral effects of FB enough to scare me off it lol Sept 19, 2022 5:11:39 GMT
