      We hebben de DCC (Dutch Comic Con) net achter ons, maar de BBQ komt er aan.  

      Yeah, the place where Nessie was recruited ;)

    • We hebben een facebook groep waar de communicatie meestal plaats vindt. We hebben met enige regelmaat kleine meets, naar een pretpark of de jaarlijkse BBQ.

    • [2:05 PM] Elve: I cannot find my second screen…
      [2:05 PM] Elve: No idea where it ran off to
      [2:05 PM] Lt. Sophie: Did you not chain it up?
      [2:05 PM] Lt. Sophie: You know how much they like running away.
      [2:07 PM] Elve: Yes, but I’m from PETS (People for the Ethical Treatment of Screens)
      [2:07 PM] Elve: So I do not chain them up
      [2:08 PM] Elve: FREE THE SCREENS!
      [2:08 PM] Elve: Eating screens is bad for you!
      [2:08 PM] Elve: You wouldn’t eat your phone!
      [2:09 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Who said I wouldn’t
      [2:10 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Phones are the cornerstone of a healthy meal
      [2:11 PM] Elve: Next thing you’re gonna tell me is that proteines are good for you!
      [2:11 PM] Lt. Sophie: xD
      [2:12 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Nah proteins are just something made up by the lobby groups
      [2:12 PM] Lt. Sophie: I do like the crunchiness of a phone screen.
      [2:12 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Mhmm
      [2:12 PM] YJ_Gonzo: It’s the crunchiest
      [2:13 PM] YJ_Gonzo: But the most tasty part I usually save for last is the lithium ion battery
      [2:14 PM] Lt. Sophie: Mmmmmh
      [2:14 PM] Lt. Sophie: I like them with a bit of chili mustard.
      [2:14 PM] Lt. Sophie: Really good.
      [2:14 PM] YJ_Gonzo: I do also like the spicy hot ones like the note 7, but they’re hard to find in this climate
      [2:15 PM] Lt. Sophie: Yeah. :frowning:
      [2:17 PM] Lt. Sophie: I don’t eat Apple though.
      [2:17 PM] Lt. Sophie: Way too expensive for the same cheap crap as the others.
      [2:17 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Me neither, too bland a taste
      [2:17 PM] Lt. Sophie: It’s not even organic.
      [2:17 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Yeah
      [2:20 PM] Lt. Sophie: How do you like microcontrollers, Gonzo?
      [2:21 PM] YJ_Gonzo: They’re the perfect snack to munch on during a good movie
      [2:21 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Though the crispy sound they make while chewing can be a bit distracting
      [2:22 PM] YJ_Gonzo: I like the many different flavours too
      [2:22 PM] YJ_Gonzo: There’s always one someone likes
      [2:24 PM] Lt. Sophie: ^^
      [2:24 PM] YJ_Gonzo: The best ones are the ones with some software in them, I like that nice sweet filling
      [2:24 PM] Lt. Sophie: Yeah, that is nice.
      [2:24 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Though the other day I had a bad batch there were bugs in the bag
      [2:24 PM] Lt. Sophie: Ewww
      [2:25 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Yeah
      [2:25 PM] Lt. Sophie: Did you kill all the bugs?
      [2:25 PM] YJ_Gonzo: I spit those out and wrote a long complaint letter
      [2:25 PM] Lt. Sophie: Haha xD
      [2:25 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Almost, a few managed to get away(edited)
      [2:27 PM] YJ_Gonzo: I do hope they will get me some compensation or a replacement batch though
      [2:27 PM] YJ_Gonzo: If it wasn’t for the bugs they would’ve been excellent
      [2:30 PM] Lt. Sophie: nods
      [2:31 PM] Lt. Sophie: Admittedly, I mostly only find the bugs in the software filling.
      [2:32 PM] YJ_Gonzo: There must be something in its production process which makes contamination by bugs possible
      [2:32 PM] Lt. Sophie: Yeah.
      [2:32 PM] Elve: I love this conversation that my silly comment led to
      [2:32 PM] Elve: Never change you guys
      [2:33 PM] YJ_Gonzo: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
      [2:33 PM] Lt. Sophie: munches on phone and stares at Elve
      [2:33 PM] Lt. Sophie: What even are you talking about?
      [2:33 PM] Lt. Sophie: I wonder if I can bake a phone and use mirror icing for the screen. xD
      [2:34 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Yeah Elve, munches on a handful of microchips(edited)
      [2:34 PM] ImaWeirdo: Great….it’s raining
      [2:35 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Bleh rain
      [2:36 PM] Lt. Sophie: I like rain.
      [2:36 PM] Lt. Sophie: Especially with my awesome umbrella :smiley:
      [2:36 PM] Lt. Sophie: It’s like walking with a window above your head.
      [2:36 PM] ImaWeirdo: I need to look for my umbrella
      [2:36 PM] Elve: Rain ruins phone food though
      [2:37 PM] Elve: So careful with that
      [2:37 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Not the latest one
      [2:37 PM] ImaWeirdo: I have a huge funeral umbrella somewhere
      [2:37 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Galaxy 7 edge is a great all weather snack
      [2:37 PM] Elve: Yeah but everyone knows the latest ones aren’t the best
      [2:38 PM] YJ_Gonzo: There are a few others like that but I haven’t tried those
      [2:38 PM] Elve: Like… how granny used to make Ye Olde Nokia
      [2:38 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Hmmm
      [2:38 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Nothing beats granny’s olde nokia
      [2:38 PM] Elve: Exactly
      [2:38 PM] Elve: Though, she used to make them like a brick
      [2:38 PM] Lt. Sophie: xD
      [2:38 PM] Elve: So careful with your teeth
      [2:38 PM] Lt. Sophie: They were a bit chewy, yeah.
      [2:39 PM] YJ_Gonzo: I liked how you could nom on them for hours
      [2:39 PM] Lt. Sophie: Like huge caramel brick bars.
      [2:39 PM] Elve: Doesn’t come close to caramel bars
      [2:39 PM] Lt. Sophie: True. It’s hard to compare.
      [2:39 PM] Elve: They’re more like jawbreakers!
      [2:39 PM] Lt. Sophie: Heh
      [2:40 PM] Lt. Sophie: I never had a jawbreaker though.
      [2:40 PM] Elve: Neither have I
      [2:40 PM] Elve: But the name says enough
      [2:40 PM] Lt. Sophie: xD
      [2:40 PM] Lt. Sophie: True.
      [2:40 PM] Elve: Nokias do the same
      [2:40 PM] YJ_Gonzo: True(edited)
      [2:41 PM] Lt. Sophie: lol
      [2:41 PM] Lt. Sophie: First they break your jaw.
      [2:41 PM] Lt. Sophie: Then, they break you.
      [2:42 PM] ImaWeirdo: O.o
      [2:42 PM] YJ_Gonzo: Then your toilet when it passes
      [2:42 PM] ImaWeirdo: What is going on?
      [2:42 PM] YJ_Gonzo: But the taste is unbelievably good

    • Awesome news Danov! We shall plan a meet-up!

    • Thank you Commander JET for your many years of dedication and outstanding service to this wonderful army, keeping the website and community together during a tumultuous time to what it is now. Thank you for the few lovely packages and Toymas cards I had the pleasure of receiving though the years.

      The biggest of salutes is in order!


    • Anyone else coming along? I need to get the discounted tickets before the 5th of June

    • It seems SpaceX is running out of hangar space for their landed rockets…
