Well, I never knew about the Spin Doctors. I'd rather interpret it as an alliterative use of a secondary meaning of "spin:"

Moving on...

I see member titles, but what are the levels? Is it just member, administrator, etc.?

As far as I know. I'm in a special user group of my own though, which is called 'Awesome'.

At least, inside my head I am, anyway.

Oh. It occurs to me that it'd be cool if we could get like a new border color for our avatar for different levels. Ordinary newbies get black. A hundred posts gets you green, a thousand gets you blue, ten thousand gets you red, and so on.

...Why? Couldn't you just add one yourself if you were so inclined?

Never mind. I don't know what I was thinking, if anything.

I think everything. Unfortunately, it doesn't leave me much time to do anything.

Hey, I've increased my alcohol consuption something major this past week or so. Bad news for my liver, sure, but could the slowage of my thinkage account for the increase in my postage?

A few late replies:
  • It's just a one-level pun on the term "spin doctor." I considered "spin city" too.
  • My point was that while watching SG1 would be wasting time, whatever else I'd do with that time (like playing videogames) would be no better.
  • Arzosah, you'll always be an Andromeda fan to me. Seriously, I'll change the title if you want me to, but Atlantis isn't my turf... and I understand that you didn't like seasons 4 and 5 of DROM, but why does that mean you're no longer a fan of the show in general?
  • I am still gonna do the Pi Day thing. Don't make me slap you.

Slap who? There's plenty of bluster and boneheadedness to go around.

Oh don't get me wrong, I am still a fan of the first few seasons of DROM. Hell, I liked some of the episodes in the last few seasons! What I didn't like was the way the writers/staff/whatever destroyed a good story.

Irregardless, now my favorite show is SG Atlantis, and it would be, DROM or not.

Like I said earlier (I think I said it earlier - I'm too lazy to check) I honestly don't mind, I'm just glad to have one. And please do leave it as is, I'll just pretend it's talking about Atlantis falling to the bottom of the sea. Its more fun that way anyway!

I wonder if I can find a picture with the Andromeda and a Stargate... if anyone finds one, tell me.

It's not Atlantis/Andromeda but it's still weird enough for me.

Better than I can do, so I'd hardly call it pathetic. (I do wish Dylan's head was attached to his shoulders in a way that didn't make him look like a Barbie doll, though ).

And the shadow on his face is on the opposite side to the shadow on his body.

Did you see the Star Trek Rom Doll?
