I believe DB has posted such signs before, it's just too hard to recognize them (these beasts we speak of) these days. Where the hell is AP1? He said he'd be checking in but I haven't seen him around since Friday.

Hey how's it hanging guys?...I had lost internet access for about a week or so. No worries though, I am back and ready to swing my sword for my fellow MU pals.

Things are looking up for me today. First thing this morning, I receive my rare copy of an 80's German Thrash band called "Darkness" from eBay. In addition, I just scored a pair of tickets on a radio station to see Kreator & Exodus this Saturday. Let's see what the rest of the day has to offer.

*sniffs* is that the smell of sizzling bacon, scrambled eggs, warm buttery pancakes, and last nights boneless chicken special? aha yes indeed!

Godlike - I'm listening to "The Kickin One (a prequel)" right now and it sounds like you were listening to a lot of Tony Iommi material before writing those riffs. I like the vibe it summons at 3:20.

Hell, Ive been an Iommi fan since 1975... In all honesty, I dont go a week without listening to some form of Sabbath... whether Dio/ Gillian of Ozzy ...?
So, I will take that whole statement as a great compliment \m/\m/

After reading ap1's last post on Friday..

"Greetings from the sandy box metalheads. I made it, and it's hot as sh** here already. I will be getting my computer account tomorrow, so get ready f***ers. "

Im assuming tomorrow would've been Saturday??
But then again, Im pretty high... So, if he posted Friday at 5pm ET...?
Was that Saturday morning for him and if thats the case then tomorrow
could possibly mean Sunday.? Whats today.. Tuesday..? Well, if he doesnt post something by tomorrow that only leaves one thing for us to do.. Wait another day or so..?

godlike: I can't say that i'm surprized by that. Seriously though, I hope you get well soon.

For all my metal breathren: Take care of yourselves and be extra careful. I just got out of a meeting about the Swine Flu (upgraded to level 4 out of 6) and that virus is mutating so fast (as well as reorganizing DNA) that it's downright scary. Wash your hands A LOT and keep at least 6 feet away from people that you suspect are ill. With the way this thing is going, i'm not convinced that this isn't an act of terror.

Kali: The problem with this one is that humans have no immunity to it. Currently, we don't know enough about it to determine what makes it deadly or not. As I said, it's reorganizing DNA and mutating at an alarming rate so what is true today may not be true tomorrow. The media says it's only deadly if you wait too long to go to the hospital; this is a great way to ensure people report their symptoms as soon as they feel the symptoms comming on and thus the hospitals can track the numbers of cases reported and confirm or deny the validity of the virus. In truth, we just don't know enough about it yet to say anything with certainty.

Kali: That was the same attitude I had (mountains out of mole hills), until my meeting yesterday with the medical community. For everyones sake, I hope your right. The pandemic of 1918 killed somewhere between 20-100 million people (double the carnage of WWI), and people back then didn't have the ease of travel like we do now. All i'm saying is that this thing has the potential to be a monster and everyone should take precautions to protect themselves. Don't worry or stress, but please, use common sense.
