    Another damned attractive Avatar - Liz Vicious, no?

    And a reference to Jonathan Swift and "Gulliver's Travels" or is that "Gullible's ?"

      T'is indeed the lovely young Liz mate but I'm a little confused about your mention of Gulliver's Travels. It's been a long time since I read it but I don't see where you got the connection from.

        Well, some years ago, a mate and I were ogling the girls (he was a successful bloke - teh Bast*rd, whereas I'm not) and as he was surveying them he mentioned that it was like being at an Eddie Hardon concert. I'd had a few drinks but he was drunk and I laughed my Head off. So, when I was stuck for a log-in name, I remember that incident and it still made me laugh, so I use that.

        Thankfully, the Names and Avatars often amuse me or make me laugh. Olorin's "The Doctor will see you now" is a nice nod to Dr Who (BBC TV). If there was no humour, I'd probably switch off.

          Yahoos were the braying characters in teh (sic) text.

          Keep up the high standard, it's a joy to look at.

          Have a good one. Hope your groundfighting et al is going well. I've been hearing good things about the London Fight Factory from someone who goes there (and does Trad JJ on the side).

          Every good wish.

            As I said, it's been a long time since I read it so I'm afraid your literal reference was lost on me, sorry dude.

            Didn't join LFF in the end. Was kindly pointed towards this club:

              In the fictional universes of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Fantasy, Khorne is one of the four major Chaos gods. Like his brother gods, Khorne grew from a single survivalist emotion: in his case, the emotion was rage. Khorne is the Chaos god of hate, war, violence and killing; for this reason he bears sobriquets such as Blood God and Lord of Skulls.
              Khorne is a spartan god of war who acts outwardly by seeking the death of others, preferring close combat over ranged weaponry; as such, he is completely opposed to the hedonistic Slaanesh, an inwardly acting god who seeks pleasure in every act and experience. He has a strong distrust of wizards and sorcerers, whom he sees as cowards; this means he is also highly suspicious of Tzeentch, although they are not archenemies. In Warhammer Fantasy, these relationships affect the makeup of an army which is dedicated to Khorne. The only thing he respects is strength.
              He is described as an extremely well-muscled, hundreds of feet tall beast-headed monster sitting on a brass throne atop a mountain of skulls in the middle of a sea of blood. The skulls are described as belonging to both his victims and his worshippers alike, as Khorne cares not from whence the blood flows, as long as it flows. Due to the immense amount of violence and killing occurring throughout the universe, Khorne is the strongest of the Chaos gods. The colours associated with him are red, brass and black, and these colours feature prominently in his demonic hordes and are usually adopted by his followers. The correct adjective to indicate individuals and events related to this God is "Khornate".


              basically, I made up the name for one of the Heroes in my original Warhammer Fantasy army. It was either Khornelius Praxx, Daemion Abraxx, Alexx Van Hellion, Khargoth the Destroyer, or Lord Ludwig von Hellfire. I think I chose wisely.

                My lesbian roomates thought I sounded like a pirate when I was drunk.
                You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

                    I like the Khorne thing, but Lord Ludwig von Hellfire sounds more of an ass man, and given your almost pirate-like obsession with the booty, you could have gone either way.

                      obsession...yes
                      but you weren't here in the old days...pirate references are a bad move...

                      How soon they forget. Do I need to bring back my original signiture.

                      What kind of A-hole makes fun of a polio victem? Helpless babies, in war torn countries, stricken with crippling disease...HILARIOUS! Trust me, she looks nothing like a pirate.

                        The drama was revisited late last year when someone made an ironic Pirates V Ninjas poll and was soundly negged.

                          No?

                          I don't know about all that. When I was a kid I read some book containing several different ghost stories and supernatural tales. For whatever reason, I was fascinated with the stories of Spring Heeled Jack, and my fascination has continued all these years. This wiki page has basically the same stories on SHJ that I first read.
