Never. Why does it have to end at all?

In six years when you realize that everyone died in the plane crash.

I'm still an active member of 8TrackTalk if that helps.

I continue to diligently pay the $20/mo membership fee. As long as everyone else is doing it - I think they'll keep it going.

Four months, seven days, thirteen hours, twelve minutes. You'll see why when the time comes.

Speaking of being blind, how does a blind person wipe their ass and know when they're clean if they can't see when the toilet paper is clean? That's something I have always wondered.

One all of the existing members die, the website will be cached and put in a museum. It will live on for younger generations to marvel at and point and laugh.

I do sometimes wonder what history books of the future will say about our current time.

There will be chapters on George Washington and the American Revolution of the 18th century, followed by chapters on the Great Depression and World Wars of the 20th century, followed by chapters on internet trolling of the early 21st century.

Can we start a poll regarding who here checks the toilet paper after each wipe to see when it's clean? Really interested.

Is there some other way to tell when you're clean? Do you sniff the tp or do you lick it? What other way is there to know when you're clean?

Maybe I'm different, but I kind of doubt it, but there is no "set amount" of wipes for my ass getting clean. Sometimes I am clean after one wipe, and sometimes it takes several wipes. Once in awhile I get a really messy shit where it seems like I have to use half a roll before I finally get clean.

The way it was explained to me: They go by the amount of glide in the slide.

Re: When will be the end of DVDTalk?

Frankly, I don't know why it has seen such a diminishment in action. There are still scads of movies being made, DVDs and BDs being released, and crazy shit happening in the world.
My theory is it's the decline of the publishing industry. No Book Talk, no DVDTalk. That's fact.

I just hope they let us know before pulling the plug so we can do a little personal backupage
