OK one more. lars_vegas suffered a lightening strike TODAY (12 years ago)!
Lars Vegas' 1000th Post! Take The Test!
As many of you know, my home was struck by lightning on 3 February, frying almost every appliance in my possession, most notably my computer. I was so happy that many of you took the time to write messages of support--I checked them in the cyber cafe down in the village. Two weeks by candlelight proved to be a blessing in disguise, a good time for reflection about where I am going in this life. I meditated on many subjects indeed. Only a few weeks ago I was being congratulated for being only 14 posts away from my "Green Jacket", but it appears the lightning has deleted at least 950 of my posts on FGI. I have noticed that it is the custom to reflect on one's 1000th post, I decided I should do so forthwith.
As I mentioned before, during the blackout I meditated on many things in a Sagittarian covering of ground. I have forgotten most of it already. But when I opened my eyes, clear of mind, I noticed a pile of teen magazines on my coffee table. I have told a select few of you, the "Insiders", about my niece Stefanie, who is currently in finishing school in Switzerland. Her parents forbid her from consuming the usual boy-crazy material that 16 year old girls should never be denied---Seventeen, Tiger Beat, etc.--so it falls to me to collect and send her these magazines. I admit I began reading them with more than a passing interest. In particular, I was intrigued by the various tests and quizzes therein--"What Type of Fox Are You?", "Your Boyfriend: Hunk or Punk?"--and so on., for I had realized that they dovetailed nicely with my hobbyist's interest in psychotropic mental coercion. I had long been searching for a means to accurately map conscious and subconscious data in certain personages under severe duress, and decided these quizzes would make a good launching point.
FGI offers the perfect control group--a diverse, seething body of individuals whose test results would provide a perfect contrast to the aforementioned subjects. I don't pretend to be reinventing the wheel here--and I should mention straightaway that this scientific data will serve no government or private corporation. It is strictly for my own purposes [🙂]. The test is unpredictable by design, but remember, there are no "right" or "wrong" answers. However, I urge those who agree to fill out the survey to please let me know if under the influence of LSD, psylocibin, etc. If it's classified under Schedule 4, just let me know the dosage--all confidential, all good, man.
And I thank you in advance. I love FGI! Except for those of you I don't---but you'll never know it, least not 'til it's too late.
