You missed the opportunity to point out my UHF reference here.
I should have responded to my oversight with "Just call me Mr. Butterfingers." I see that now.
Pointing this out is just making things worse.
You should probably edit that post at least one more time, Q. The writing could be clearer.
Just like Lost!
I knew you'd be posting something to that effect, but I didn't know what your exact wording would be, so I didn't feel comfortable doing that obnoxious thing I do where I go ahead and make your post for you.
Many of my relatives are, indeed, slow. Because Alabama.
I started the day with some pretty solidly funny posts. I knew as the day went on that I wouldn't be able to maintain the momentum for long.
Even so, the day's slow slide into unfunniness is a personal disappointment.
The Emo/Imo thing would have worked in conversation. On the screen, it just looks stupid.
Ah, well. Free gas for everyone!
Sometimes, though, being Emo is just part of the process...
I considered it, but I didn't want people thinking I was being Emo.
YouTube is being incredibly aggressive about changing my account name. I've told it I want to be "smurfthumper" a couple days ago, and it has undermined my choice at least twice. It told me I had fourteen days to make up my mind. Unnecessary. I made it up years ago when I created my YouTube account under the name "smurfthumper."
The first time my choice was undermined, it tried to give me my birth name. The second time, I logged in as smurfthumper to watch an age-restricted video, and everything looked fine and dandy. When I hit the back arrow to return to a YouTube video I had watched before logging in, however, it changed my ID to "firstname.lastname@example.org." No. I never told you I wanted my gmail address to be a part of my YouTube account. I never told you I wanted anyoune on YouTube to put my gmail info anywhere on YouTube.
Of course, I made the mistake of linking my gmail account to YouTube years ago (this couldn't be undone, unfortunately), and many people are likely to assume the gmail account and YouTube account use the same name. In my case, the two happen to be the same. They wouldn't necessarily be the same, though, so I don't like what's being done.
It's not that I want to protect my anonymity. I don't give a shit about that. It's just that I want my YouTube account name to stay the same fucking thing it always has been.
Now I see that YouTube is offering me a dropdown menu when I'm logged in so I can choose to post as either "smurfthumper" or "email@example.com."
Just so Spacey doesn't think we're leaving a reference un-recognized, Mal's post was a reference to Wedding Singer.
It's all around me. Since 1979.
IT'S A METAPHOR!
