    I don't know about the rest of you, but the fish slapping thing is getting a little old in the tooth for me, just as is the constant surprise Rick Rolling links.

    I would like to suggest an open discussion on new methods for welcoming new members. I think as one of the best non-profit science forums on the web we can up our game. With the mental firepower we can muster this should not be all that difficult. But, having said that, I may live to regret it. After all, I predicted that tropical storm Irene would be a mild event, and you know how well I did with that prediction. Can we rise to a challenge ?

    Rhody... :approve:

    The fish slap is a time honored ritual, it only happens in GD. We've tried low carb offerings, cereal, etc...

    Some rituals we do not mess with, so no, I do not wish to change it.

    Very well! Might I suggest a video! You must watch the entire thing for a secret message!

    Bad Pengy,

    See if I ever stick up for you again, remember the thread, "where do penguin's go when they die?"

    Rhody...

    P.S. Don't you ever sleep, you post a lot in the wee hours of the morning ?

    ACK !!! That is almost as bad as Rickrolling, that gives me a headache too, looks like others have posted that video speeded up to a mercifully quick ending.

    Rhody...:grumpy:

    So we're agreed, it's either fish slapping or rick roll'ing.

    I suggest that Greg set up the forum so that whenever a crackpot logs on, these two videos are all they can see and they can't stop them without shutting their computer off.
