while Cthulhu rose up from the ground and raised hell, killing anyone that got anywhere near him.
Pfeh! When I was your age, we were all Great Old Ones, running amok in our five minutes off from the black hole factory each day!

Eh? In my time, we had this thing that disconnected every 30 minutes, and Satan came and stole half of our existing soul each time. It also costed 20$ a minute!

Eee in my day when you killed a thread you buried it at the cross-roads with a stake through its heart so necros couldn't practice their dark arts.

Bah! In my day when a thread died you had to cut off its head and boil it for a week in vinegar. Then you had to stuff it with sesame seeds and sew it back on the body and walk 30 miles through a blizzard to bury it on the crossroads outside the school. Then I had to ork a 16 hour day for a sixpence every two months.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

ay you had it easy. In my day if you wanted to kill a thread you had to shoot it with a silver bullet that had a verse from the bible carved into it with a very small shard of a consecrated diamond, then soaked in your own blood. Then you had to bury it on the 13th at midnight, then you had to spend three days reciting the ritual of binding, then errect an edifice, with your own two hands, in order to prevent the unsuspecting from unearthing it and then I had to work down t' pit for fivepence every month, with five seconds off every other sunday.

Let me tell you, sonny. Let me set you straight
You kids today ain't never had it rough
Always had everything handed to you on a silver plate
You lazy brats think nothing's good enough
Well, nobody ever drove me to school when it was ninety degrees below
We had to walk butt naked through forty miles of snow
Worked in the coal mine twenty two hours a day for just half a cent
Had to sell my internal organs just to pay the rent

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age

Let me tell you something, you whiny little snot
There's something wrong with all you kids today
You just don't appreciate all the things you've got
We were hungry, and broke and miserable
And we liked it fine that way

There were seventy-three of us living in a cardboard box
All I got for Christmas was a lousy bag of rocks
Every night for dinner we had a big chunk of dirt
If we were really good we didn't get dessert

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age

Didn't have no telephone didn't have no FAX machine
All we had was a couple of cans and a crummy piece of string
Didn't have no swimming pool when I was just a lad
Our neighbor's septic tank was the closest thing we had
Didn't have no dental floss had to use old rusty nails
Didn't have Nintendo, we just poured salt on snails
Didn't have no water bed, had to sleep on broken glass
Didn't have no lawnmower, we used our teeth to cut the grass

What's the matter now, sonny, you say you don't believe this junk?
You think my story's wearin' kinda thin?
I tell you one thing, I never was such a disrespectful punk
Back in my time, we had a thing called discipline

Dad would whoop us every night till a quarter after twelve
Then he'd get too tired and he'd make us whoop ourselves
Then he'd chop me into pieces and play frisbee with my brain
And let me tell ya, Junior, you never heard me complain

When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age


... if we were lucky.

Pah, in my day, if someone necrobumped a thread their thumbs were cut off, then they were tarred, feathered, and forced to advertize a special on drumsticks in front of the butcher's.

(for the record, I didn't necrobump this thread, someone else did and deleted their post.)

thats nothing, in my day if u ressurected a thread you would be hanged... 3 times.. then they would burn u twice and drown u in the river...
then if u managed to survive all that they would put u on an evil auction site such as ebay and sell u for a good 10 cents or so..

HAH! Back in my day, Pluto was a planet, and we had to endure the constant chatter of astronomers every single day as they discussed the little dwarf's fate...oh, the agony!

Back in my day we didn't even have planets. All we had were stars. We never slept because it was always light so we just kept working and working, then we got planets instead of stars. We called it the sixties.

Aye, back in my day, the only time we saw the night sky was when we left our work benches and went outside for a 15 minute break sometime after 3 AM.  We were allowed this luxury once a year as our Christmas break.  After working for twenty years, we were allowed to take a 20 minute break.
