I guess I'm pretty new to Teen Ink, and I just discovered this forum thing... What a cool place! My name's Ellen, and I love discussing anything related to philosophy, music, and the outdoors. I may not be on here all the time but I'd love to talk about genuinely interesting things!
Hello again Smitty :D Welcome to the forum. At your service, Doctorbug ;)
Welcome Ellen! You like philosophy, music and the outdoors...hmm...I believe you've come to the right place XD! I'm Doctorbug, one of your resident Torah Keeping Christians (Packerbear is the 1st). Philosophy & Thought is an amazing place for mind excersize...but if you're not into that too much, you can always stop by the "Random Chat" room and take a seat on one of the cozy couches. It helps most of us unwind. We're all really nice here and we pretty much talk about "life, the universe, and everything" XD
Alright...I'll let one of the other Inkers introduce themselves, and maybe present the less crazy side of us, muahaha.
*Doctorbug talks to her double too often, don't take anything she says seriously that you don't want to take seriously* ;)
Are Hitchhiker's Guide references common? Because if so I automatically like this place even more!
I have a feeling you will stay Ellen...hehe, very common. Look on page two ;)
Of the main page lol
Just realized I haven't introduced myself here... If you haven't noticed by now Pseudo Walsh is my pen name (oh, also a big fan of sarcasm). I adore a nice chat on philosophy. I'm an ENTP/ENTJ and proud, I love acting and theatre, a psycho (whoops meant psychic), a fan of random theatrical stuff (that includes V for Vendetta for you fans), and yes I'm trying to create the longest run-on ever. Hello everyone! :D
I just needed to reply to you Psuedo, for no other reason that the this thread had 666 posts...soooo (awkward glance around the lobby)...HAHAHA!
I'm curious, but I wasn't seeing what you were talking about on Page 2 - was it the thread about "Books that Changed Your Life"? Or something else???
And sorry for messing up the 666 ;)
Anyways, there was just a thread called "So long and thanks for all the fish". There's an abundance of Hitchhiker references in that thread, as you can imagine.
Welcome Smitty, Ellen, and PW, please do call me PB:) Unless of course you want to type out packerbear..my original name was packerbacker but then I changed my picture to a bear so I did packerbear lol, in request of another inkie:p I do disagree with drbug on one thing..half.note was the first torah keeping christian(since I've been here) then I was 2nd, and drbug fell in 3rd:p If you don't know Torah is the first five books of the Bible, many claim it's the Jewish sacred text..but I would disagree and say they hold the Talmud(traditonal oral law) over the Torah. Anyways..welcome!:)
Hah! I forgot to welcome you Walsh...out of curiosity, are you a guy or a girl? Haha, it would be weird calling you Walsh and you're a girl. I could call you Pwalsh hehe :P.
PB: Ahh..ohhh...meee...ummm....yeah you're right. Completely and totally right. I just figured I'd stop calling myself "messianic", because that doesn't help most people, and the people who do know what a messianic is, generally know there's more than one kind, and that will just leave them wondering which one I am, lol.
In regards to the Talmud, I thought they used that second to the Torah O.O I wouldn't be surprised though if they used it first and the Torah second. Hmph.
Yay! New people! :D
I apologize, newbies, for the current lack of activity. Back in the day, this forum used to be a bustling place where philosophically-minded teens came together regularly to discuss everything under the sun. Most of us left en masse a couple months ago, though. It's been pretty dead ever since. *sniffle*
Hopefully you guys will be able to bring it back to life. :)
As for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: we definitely love it here. I think we even had a book club thread for it at one point. Sadly, it didn't last.
Also, PB and Doctorbug, we should form a club or something. We can be the "Sabbath-keepers of Teen Ink" or something like that. XD
Anyways, welcome new people (Stonegirl, Smitty, Ellen, Pseudo Walsh, and anyone else I may have missed). I hope you enjoy your stay. And don't worry: we don't bite... Except for maybe Doctorbug's double... I'd watch out for that one. ;)
God bless. ♥
Hello everyone. I'm Ray, another guy from another side of the planet.
It's great to see such a lot of new people here (I'm somewhere between new and not-new). It feels like the time when I first came here, the only difference is that older people aren't on/posting much,(Specially half.note, she was everywhere when I first hopped in)
drbug: depends on the sect of Judiasm. Orthodox they definatly put he Talmud before the Torah. But Reform they really don't follow the Torag or the Talmud soo..I don't know lol.
half.note: This looks like a pretty promising newbie wave, hopefully not the one that washes us away and leaves it to them but it could..And I like the sound of that club!:p drbug, what's your vote?XD
Sabbath Keeper Club members #1 #2 & #3 WUT? LOL SKP? SEP. HAHAHA...I can see this coming back to me. Newbie wave does look very promising. I almost want to be swept aside!
"My name's Ellen, and I love discussing anything related to philosophy, music, and the outdoors."
Do you do musical stuff yourself (playing, writing, composing, producing, etc.)? I'm huge into making music (probably future career, in fact), so I'm always on the lookout for anyone else I can talk to about it :o
"I'm an ENTP/ENTJ and proud"
INTP bordering on INTJ here! Analyst types represent! From what I understand of MBTI, these forums may well be the perfect place for an ENT* :D
Welcome, all y'all newbies! I'm Stuntddude (Miles Fogle), a now 16-year-old aspiring musician and hobbyist programmer from Missouri. I'm a dirty liberal atheist till the end of days and I want to tear down to music industry one label at a time.
Correction: I'm probably closer to INTP bordering INFP, actually. INTJ is not really me anymore, at all :/
Hey everyone I'm ghostofwinterspast but you can just call me ghost. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That is a really short, sorry. If you have any questions, just call me out and let me know, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Hey Ghost:) Even though we've already talked a bit it's nice to meet you on this side!:p we've already established to call me PB..hmm what else, not sure.
Are you a guy or a gal?(it's just nice to know)
