    Our old young friend Mentat is due to return on 8/22; according to mom...

    Will Mentat Return??? What are your theories and philosophical positions on this matter? :wink:

    I will define "back" to mean posting more than once to a regular thread.

    Yes, he has already been back...

    He used the PM feature a couple of days ago.

    Last ntie i had a dream and in that dream mentat returned on time, with bigger better arguements to liven this forum up a little, it seems quieter without him around. Doesnt help that entropy either.

    Haha, in that case I'm voting with Zantra.

    ya but I have to agree that even the best minds have to exercise thier other muscles occasionally as well. When you're a teenager there's nothing better than "mindless fun" If the mind is well but the body is not, then one can seep into the other. Social well being is just as important as intellectual well being.

    In other words, sometimes you just have to let a kid be a kid. I know mentat would argue against that, but hey, I'm still a big kid, and it helps the stesses and pressures of life immensely.

    Mentat is our #1 poster...he'll be back!

    I hope he comes back. He's a great kid with a lot of insight to offer.

    The rumble of a distant drums is heard approaching. The air grows still and thick; and hot. Boulderhead can feel the beads of blood building on his brow. IF only I had more time thought Boulderhead...if only I had more time...

    Behold, I have come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing I have but a short time...

    Mwuhahahaha

    It's a Biblical thang.

    Hmmm, tomorrow is the big day so it doesn't look like he will be making it back early after all.

    I emailed him a few weeks back- he said he missed it here, and couldn't wait to get back on. I know he wants to come back

    Mentat lives!

    I PMd Mentat yesterday and he has responded. He is still grounded. Hopefully we will see him before too long.

    Mentat: Stay out of trouble for a change.

    It seems that he is allowed only a little editing for now.

    Mentat will come back.
     
  17. Aug 25, 2003 #16
    He sent me an email, and he's hoping to be back in another week or two. Just a matter of time;)

    FYI

    Mentat informed me that he will know for certain tomorrow whether he will be allowed to return or not.

    It would seem fair to me that he be allowed at least some minimal time for PF each day, so I hope a nod of approval will be forthcoming.

    Well, you gotta think...how long has he been gone, and he is still #1 on the post-count list? Maybe his mom had a point!

    And our new number one poster will be...?

    Also, I am told that Mentat will return.
     
  21. Aug 30, 2003 #20
    Well, yeah...it will likely be me, but I don't have homework to do, and I work strange hours. I know he'll be back, but I sure hope he slows down a bit, you know? For his own sake, and all.
