    Happy birthday to the site.

    Please save me a piece of cake.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    A couple other examples:

    The Joe Hill thread 5/11/2007
    What Are You Currently Reading 5/4/2007

    12 years... and even longer when you count the predecessor TDT sites: I’ve known some of you internet folks far longer than most people in my daily off-line life!

    Trust me, we've had that conversation many times...
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    It's a translation issue.
    Just before a child (or internet site) enters their teens (13-19), one or both parents need to have a discussion with the pre-pubescent child about their changing body and sexuality, as well as the appropriate measures to take to avoid unwanted pregnancy as well as avoiding sexually transmitted diseases.
