So here's the deal ..if you are new and would like your name and location in this subject by all means post it in here and i will gladly add you to the subject!

I used to go through the rankings page and check the profile on names I didn't recognize. Now there are just too too many. Once/week used to be manageable.
Also, if the username didn't automatically pop up as an option when I was entering people for challenges, that was a pretty good sign it was new.
When I had to go from post-its to full looseleaf, I gave up.

I frequently look at the rankings for the months and see the new members there. I check when they have joined and it is easy to challenge them. I have made some nice friends that way, and despite what Stu said, they I have not encountered any porn-spammers. Porn-spammers would hardly bother working on earning points.

I really like playing with the new players. They are fun and don't have attitudes and and so grateful to be asked.

Belly button situation sounds serious, Tea. Try hot compresses.

I think that those that are comfortable joining in and socializing on the internet will and those that don't, won't.
I just think more announcements on the front page will help spur some on to join events like the Kevvie or the Decathlon. Seems like those events can get buried in the forums.
I don't think we need a rush chairman or woman.

I haven't been here very long.When I found the members catagory I gave my information.I love reading the sometimes weird and cocky conversations the old-timers have.Once I brought up the members subject and someone brought up that not everyone is honest so I didn't pursue contacting the new members. I have since found out some people cheat.I found this out by myself when I was looking at monthly records of the past. The people who cheer me on and talk to all the time are wonderful.It is a lot of fun. I really enjoy being a part of this.PS--Shut up!! LOL

hay, I knew Ethelredd and he was never ready for the likes of this controversy..he gave away the country to chaos under much less stressful circumstances and this too shall befall him--he just never learns. Makes you want to get rid of some of those pr devils, huh. Those crazies who manipulate markets, still. I won't say who because they are SOO loved despite all the damage done--happy St Pat's Day anyway. My advice is to drink heavily. (also, drink one for Charlie Rose--everyone's hero)

Good answer!

In addition to "monology" being the habit of talking to oneself, it can also mean the study of stupidity.

Carlo Maria Cipolla's theory of stupidity (monology) is composed of five fundamental laws:

1. Always and inevitably each of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
2. The probability that a given person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic possessed by that person.
3. A person is stupid if they cause damage to another person or group of people without experiencing personal gain, or even worse causing damage to themselves in the process.
4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people; they constantly forget that at any time anywhere, and in any circumstance, dealing with or associating themselves with stupid individuals invariably constitutes a costly error.
5. A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person there is.

Some also call the study of stupidity "stupidology", this word is even harder to find in any dictionary than the word "monology". In fact there's no 'official' term for "the study of stupidity", it's simply called ... "the study of stupidity". Seems stupid, doesn't it?

Giancarlo Livraghi, fascinated with stupidity (his own then humans') made a lot of research in the domain of stupidity. In his article the power of stupidity, says he was surprised by the little amount of study dedicated to the topic:

"There are University departments for the mathematical complexities in the movements of Amazonian ants, or the medieval history of Perim island; but I have never heard of any Foundation or Board of Trustees supporting any studies of Stupidology."

I think, perhaps, someone ought to devote some time and effort to this study; stupid as it may seem.

Am I talking to myself here, or am I just plain old stupid?

:)

Agree stupid people can be very dangerous. Very clever ones can also be harmful, as well! No, you don't appear to be stupid at all.

I would consider it an honour, nay a great honour if I could become an official member of this crazy madhouse by having my details added. Is there any funny business involved in the initiation ceremony - I've heard all sorts goes on when you join these 'members only' websites? Incidentally, GJ, how many times have you been refused entry to members only meetings because you've taken things a little too literally?
