This is by far our most popular forum and one of the best places to get lost in endless non-Palahniuk debates. Come meet our regulars...

Hey everyone, I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that we have a long-overdue site update coming in the next few days and since a lot of stuff is going to change I thought it best to let you know what to expect. So, here are some details.

When is it happening? How long will it take? Squirrel!
We're aiming to bring the site down for the update the weekend of the 18th, though we might be a few days behind that. I'll update this post when I am certain. The site will probably be down for 2-3 days but hit us up on Twitter or Facebook for updates. We're a small crew and some of the database stuff we need to run just takes a lot of time, sadly.

What is changing?
Basically everything. We're making a lot of changes. Primarily to streamline the site and get it back to it's more Chuck-centric roots. As a result, we're going to get rid of a bunch of unused or rarely used things.

    This exchange is for writing materials (pens, journals, etc.) Plus whatever else you feel like sending, though you aren't required to send anything extra. So far the participants are:

    Imke
    Jaz
    Amy
    Melody

    Anyone else who wants to sign up please do so before 6pm (central time) Saturday. Deadline for shipping is Friday September 27th, which is two weeks from the sign up deadline.

    I hope to see more of you join in!

    I'm sure many of you have heard about the convicted felon whose mugshot has leaked to the internet and gone viral because he's a handsome guy. Girls are taking donations to pay this guy's bail if the news is accurate and odds are the man's a killer. This just made me think about how society's value system if off these days and too much importance is placed on physical appearance. Just look at the way things are marketed, it seems like the sex sells advertising method is used more heavily today than ever before.

    There has been so many school shootings in the past 2 months. These tragedies have been constantly covered by all news networks as new information is discovered. The main question that I've been pondering and debating with people is: What's changed from our parent's generation to now? Shootings weren't commonplace back then. I have my own theories but nothing solid enough to really go on. I was just looking to get more perspectives on this because it's really been haunting me lately.

    How old is everyone's city?
    Mine's like 225.

    I was wondering the other day, how in the world does someone start up a city nowadays if they want to. Do they just start buying up a bunch of land until they got enough to start building a city hall? It's got to be more than that.

    It's just weird for me to think of some new modern city being built up in, like, the last 50 years.
    I mean, I can see in places like Dubai or Chinaland, where they're starting building a skyscraper every 11 minutes or so; that would need a lot of new cities to accommodate those things.

    I forget when it was, maybe 7th or 8th grade; but I'll never forget how it happened.
    I had told this one guy how I'd never seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I had seen bits and pieces of it when I was a kid.
    I remember the whole thing with Michael Palin in the Castle Anthrax, I thought was supposed to be scary or a horror movie or something. I don't know if it had anything to do with my crippling fear of women now.
