[edit] Guten Tag Heimstern Läufer

Happy New year, and all the best. Aufwiderstien(sp). Nikolce Kocovski 05:47, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Same to you, Nikolce! Where I am, we have just about fifteen minutes to go until New Year's. It's almost here! Have a great 2006! Heimstern Läufer 07:48, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Ï kñów it's â lìttle lãtè, Î just wánted tò wísh yôù a häppy néw yeàr, and may thîs year yõu'll gêt to plåy yoûr músic in Gërmanÿ! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 10:35, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

That'd be cool! We'll see. Happy New Year to you, too, Coolio! Heimstern Läufer 20:22, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] sig image

what does your sig image mean? do you just like interstate 101?-- Benol, aka Coach B 00:12, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Well, the 101 goes through my town. So, yeah, I like it, and it's kind of a part of where I live. That's why I use it. Heimstern Läufer 00:35, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh, and it's technically not an interstate but rather a US highway, although it is built to Interstate Highway standards in several places (including most of the route between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, a section which I travel on a near-monthly basis). Anyway, there's a little trivia for you. Heimstern Läufer 09:00, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] what do you like most about homestar runner?

Hey there Heimstern Laufer, how have you been i've been doing great, anyway the question i'm asking you is the title. see you around?

Nikolce Kocovski 10:08, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey, I'm doing OK. In a couple of days, I'll be driving from Oregon (where I've been spending the holidays) back to California to get back to school. It's about 800 miles, so it's a bit of a trek! Anyway, as for your question: Wow, that's hard. Just one thing? Well, I'll say that it's the interaction of Homestar Runner and Strong Bad. The way Homestar is so nice yet stupid, and how Strong Bad hates him and yet can never actually seem to hurt Homestar's feelings or anything, the way Strong Bad is so witty and yet scatterbrained... It's hard to describe, but that's pretty much it. Talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 03:39, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Re: Welcome template

Hi Heimstern. I wanted to alert you that Strongsar recently accidently edited your welcome template, by clicking on the edit tab on his/her talk page. To prevent this from happening, please, when welcoming someone type this: {{subst:User:Heimstern Läufer/welcome|paremeters}} instead of {{User:Heimstern Läufer/welcome}}. Thanks. — talk Bubsty edits 04:07, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Oh good. That's much better. Thanks for your help. You're my doge. Heimstern Läufer 04:14, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
no problem. — talk Bubsty edits 04:48, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] For the Win

I'm going to take a stab here and say that the quote on your page means "AH! That is not a small number! That is a big number!" —Zelinda 21:35, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Ah, we have a new winner! Heimstern Läufer 21:36, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Yup, good ol' google translater helped me find that one. Except it technaclly says "OH! That is not a small number! That is a large number!" — talk Bubsty edits 00:35, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, actually, it could be translated either way. It's just that Google translator can't really know what exact meaning a word would have. Heimstern Läufer 03:01, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Have fun!

Have fun in California! Glad you're back in your home! — talk Bubsty edits 06:29, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
I am indeed. Back in the land of sunshine, beaches, In-N-Out Burger, El Pollo Loco and heavy traffic... home sweet home! Heimstern Läufer 05:00, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Did someone say Elcoolio De Fabio? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:03, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Remind me to start up a fast food chain by that name someday. :-) Heimstern Läufer 05:09, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
I'll write that the same place I wrote you owe me a cupcake. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 13:38, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I Think I Gots It!

Is your German S.B. phrase "an German"? -hr.png NBBB(Talk · Contributions) 00:43, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Are you translating "auf Deutsch"? The translation for that is "in German". But that isn't the quote I wanted translated; rather, I meant the one that's in the caption for the image of SB. Mibluvr13 has already translated that above. Heimstern Läufer 00:47, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I Owe Ya This One

Well, I gotta admit it, Heimstern. Er, Hime-strain. Horm-stern. So, anyway, Hamster, you gave me the idea to post Latin translations on my user page. And you got my newest one! I know I've said this before, Hamster, but you truuly are AWEXOME!!!! LePorello / T / C 01:57, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Cool! I wondered if your Latin translations were inspired by my German ones, but I certainly didn't want to assume it. Glad to see it confirmed, though. Latin's a toughie for me since I don't know how to reduce the verbs to the form given in a dictionary (which, I assume, is why I couldn't find "pellui", since I needed to look for "pellere"). But "dubito" looked remarkably like "dubious" to me, and I could think of one quote in which Homestar refers to doubting something, so I took a stab at that. Dot com tells me he uses a similar method to unravel my German. Anyway, I hope I'll have a chance to translate your Latin again sometime. Talk atcha later. Heimstern Läufer 05:08, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

I just posted a new one with Homsar as the speaker. Good luck!LePorello / T / C 21:34, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] on wheels?

(This comment refers to the following statement on Heimstern Läufer's user page at the time: "A while ago, I saw a van with the words "Santa Barbara meals on wheels" (emphasis added) and had a brief moment of panic.")

Hey, why did you panic at the sight of "on wheels"? Is it similar to the NSMC scandal, cause I saw several usernames with "on wheels" in the title. -Marth 99 02:13, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes. There was a serial vandal who was known as Willy on Wheels, or WoW. He was a page move vandal whose MO was, for example, to move "Strong Bad" to "Strong Bad ON WHEELS!!!!!" He often registered user names that ended with "on wheels" also, and sometimes he impersonated sysops or other heavy users (e.g., "It's dot com ON WHEELS!" or "DorianGray ON WHEELS!") I don't know that he's been seen since before the lockdown, but he was infamous, especially before NSMC took his spot as all-time #1 vandal. Oh, and unlike NSMC, WoW is/was not a bot, if I'm not mistaken. See HRWiki:A History#Willy on Wheels for more info. Heimstern Läufer 02:19, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Congratulations


You've made the first edit of the day! You win a Prawn! And I'm really bored! Thunderbird 07:04, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

The first edit of whose day? Combolations? Combinations? —BazookaJoe 07:05, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
The first edit of the day? How's that? It's 7am UTC and 11pm the day before here in California... I guess it's the first edit of the day in Phoenix, but I thought you were in Pacific time, like me...? Well, I'll take the prawn anyway (a long as I don't have to eat it; I don't like seafood) even though I don't quite understand how I won it. Keep on tranglin'. Heimstern Läufer 07:19, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I'm too lazy to switch my time over from the summer setting (Daylight Savings Time and all) and as such my clock's still an hour off. I totally forgot. In any case, you can keep the prawn. (P.S. I was refering to this edit. At the very least, it's on the hour. Thunderbird 08:07, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Ah, that's what was wrong. Well, no harm done. And I thought you must have meant that edit, since it was right on the hour. Talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 08:16, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Btw, which prawn do you like better? The one from the toon, or flash decompile'd? (For the article) Thunderbird 08:22, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I guess I marginally prefer the one on the white background, whichever one that is. Heimstern Läufer 08:33, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Good call. Okay, I'm going to bed now, I'm starting to go loopy. You can keep them if you want, just don't leave them out in the sun too long. Thunderbird 08:37, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] German Translation

Hmm, I guess Strong Bad ate most of them already...

And the Trogdor (dragon) comes in the NIIIIIIIIIIGH! Thunderbird 23:49, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

"Dragon" is the word. And yes, you got it! Heimstern Läufer 23:54, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Hey! Where's my cupcakes?!?!? And I even gave you a Pr4wn! Thunderbird 23:56, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Here. Grab that last one before Strong Bad eats it! :-) Heimstern Läufer 00:09, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
Ahh! Butter'd! Oh the humanity!!!!! Last time I try and translate for anybody... *Goes and buys his own cupcakes* Thunderbird 00:14, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Wait, wait, wait... Where are my cupcakes?! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:17, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] im back!

Hey there Heimstern Läufer, how have you been, i've been doing alright, whats been going since the 5/1/06.
i've forgot to tell you that i was on holiday since the 5, with my family to the gold coast, it was great?
ps: whats happend to bubsty, when i checked he's user page, all it said was bye wiki, whats going on?
Nikolce Kocovski 03:33, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Sad news, Nikolce: Bubsty has left the wiki, at least for now. He said it would probably be at least a year. He evidently felt he was spending too much time here.
Things have been going OK for me. School has started again, and I'm as busy as crap. I got to transcribe the new Strong Bad Email today; that was pretty awesome!
Glad to hear you had a good holiday! But where is the Gold Coast? Anyway, talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 03:41, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

the gold coast is in queenSland close to the capital of brisbane, its a place with lots of beaches, holtelts that kind of thing. Nikolce Kocovski 03:58, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Cool. I really need to learn some Australian geography someday (I can never remember where all the states are and stuff like that; just about where Sydney and Canberra are). Anyway, keep on tranglin'! Heimstern Läufer 05:44, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Tompkins

Listen up, you undapants! Who wants to get hogtied, and pushed down, into, some snakewater? Thunderbird 13:52, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

And, almost twenty-four hours later, I finally get around to telling you that you got it right. Great jaerb! Heimstern Läufer 05:18, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
WooHoo! Cupcakes, here I come! Thunderbird 05:27, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
This was probably one of the most fun translations for me, trying to render Tompkins' silly threat into German. I had to coin the word "Schlangewasser" for "snakewater", which is pretty awesome, in my humble opinion. It was also just funny to have someone call someone else "Unterhosen". Maybe I'll find someone who speaks German and threaten them with this line! ;-) Heimstern Läufer 07:10, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] The Homestar.

LOL! I've seen a video on this! It's like a mini planetarium you can take anywhere I think. I don't remember where I found the video but it's like searchable or something. Oh! I found it... click here and then click on the Broadband button (or narrowband for those who have dialup). Enjoy! (I don't know if this one's in english, but i thought there was one? Let me know.) --Stux 14:33, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Japanese websites are weird, man.

What is that "fun and random thing" on the Japanese Amazon site? I don't have Japanese characters installed on my Compy, so all that shows up are question marks. I see a picture of something labeled Homestar on it. Can you please tell me? Has Matt? (talk) 16:35, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Never mind. I saw the above comment by Stux. Has Matt? (talk) 16:36, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] German Translation, Take... whatever.

Homestar's saying "It deliciously didn't work!" from Bug In Mouth Disease. --DorianGray

Dorian wins again! Now we have three repeat winners. Great jaerb! Heimstern Läufer 18:53, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Fwee. I was afraid I wasn't gonna be fast enough this time. Sometimes a good translator is hard to find quickly, yeah? Also, maybe you could have one single talk page section for answering these...? I can't help but feel we're just making clutter and really short sections that lose their purpose quickly. --DorianGray
Dag, yo, I wanna answer one someday. I got the words "delicious" and "rattling" and thought it might have to do with "I'm all jangly inside!" Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 19:04, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Heh, if I ever tried a quote from that scene, I'd have to try to get Jay to figure it out. Anydangway, Coder, keep your eye out for more quotes, I do them pretty often these days. Definitely try to answer one sometime (then you could get a spot on my list under your German name: Heimstern Verschlüsslerin!) Yeah, klappen can mean "rattle", but in colloquial language it can also mean "to work" (in the sense of "to work out", never in the sense of "to labor", which is arbeiten). That is of course what I meant here. Dorian: I don't really make rules about how people should use my talk page (other than "don't vandalise it"), so I don't really mind if everyone puts their answers under the same heading (that's what Dot com always used to do back when he was the only one who had ever answered one. But I also don't really mind the way it's being done now (since I archive regularly, it doesn't really matter to me if there's a bunch of short sections). So, each user can do what he/she wants when answering my questions.
I'm glad my translations have become popular. When I first started these, I wondered if many would care to translate them (and my wonderings were somewhat justified: for awhile, Dot com was the only one who ever answered them). But now lots of people have answered, and most translations get done in just minutes after I post them. And if imitation truly is the best form of flattery, I suppose I can be flattered that LePorello took from me the idea to have Latin translations on his user page. Good times! Heimstern Läufer 19:52, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Donnervogel L17?

That's awesome. Does my name translate into anything very easily? And what's the German number for "Seventeen", out of curiosity? Thunderbird 05:55, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't know that you can translate your name. What is the ethnic origin of that name, anyway? That might help me know. (My name doesn't really translate either, although it is pronounced differently, of course.) Technically, I don't even know for sure how your name is pronounced (it's the "ei" I'm not sure of; is it "ee", "ay", "ie" or something else)? German doesn't have a "th" sound, so Germans might have a bit of trouble pronouncing it (my name has the same problem). As for "seventeen", it's siebzehn in German. And in case Mibluvr13 ever wonders about the number in her name, it's dreizehn. Heimstern Läufer 06:05, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
My name sounds just like "Keith", except with an L in front. And as the the origin, Wikipedia might explain it. It's my mom's birthplace. Does the more common "Keith" translate into anything in German? Thunderbird 06:11, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Your name = from the name of a Scottish town, which derives from Gaelic leathann "broad". — It's dot com 06:16, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Exactly. I forgot to meantion that. "Wide", after a wide river, or so I read somewhere a long time ago. Thunderbird 06:18, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
{edit conflict: I wrote this after reading the link Thunderbird gave me, but before reading Dot Com's and his most recent comments} I thought it might be Scottish, since I know you are of Scottish ancestry (so am I, partially). And there's really no way to turn any Scottish name (or for that matter, French or Russian) into German. A name pretty much has to be classical, like Laura (my sister's name) or Hebrew (like my name) to have ever been Germanicized. They'd just try to call you by your name (or possibly Leiss, if they couldn't say "th" correctly). Pretty much everyone in Germany will just pronounce your name in English if you're an English speaker anyway, though. Heimstern Läufer 06:19, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh well, not to worry then. I decided to just leave my list at "Thunderbird" anyways. Maybe I should change my username... Thunderbird 06:23, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hello in German?

Can you teach me hello in German? Bluebry 23:08, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

The normal way to say "Hello" in German is just "Hallo". If you want to be more formal, you can say "Guten Morgen" in the morning, "Guten Tag" in the afternoon or "Guten Abend" in the evening. Heimstern Läufer 00:18, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
Guten abend from where I am. Also, I made another poll. Check it out!Bluebry 01:04, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
How do you pronounce "Guten Tag"? Bluebry 23:10, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, the first two syllables sound just like English words: "goo" and "ten", with the first receiving the accent. The last word is pronounced "tak" with the a sounding like in "father", not "dad". That last word is also where the stress of the whole phrase lies. Heimstern Läufer 23:20, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! - Bluebry 23:51, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Happy Mozartday!

Happy Mozartday!

I'll say two things about that guy. One, he could really write a piece of music. And two, Wolfgang is a really cool name. Seriously. Oh, and I thought you'd appreciate the image currently being used on Google. Thunderbird 09:21, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, Thunderbird, that pretty much sums it up. He could really write a piece, and you don't have to be a music person to know that. As for "Wolfgang": I always just love how in Amadeus, he and his wife call each other "Wolfi" and "Stanzi". Those are arguably even better than "Heimi". I hoped Google was going to put up something for the birthday; I guess I was not to be disappointed. Anyway, Happy freakin' Mozartday! :-) Heimstern Läufer 15:29, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Mozart rocks! I was gonna post something like that myself, but it was like 8:00 PM when I realized it was Mozart's birthday. Good reminder, Google! Just start celebrating rapper birthdays and I'll be set. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

[edit] IRC

Hey, Heimstern, now that HSRU has to split, It would be great if you could come into IRC so that we can at least communicate during this. Thanks. — Lapper (talk) 09:25, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Jawohl! Heimstern Läufer 09:26, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Brief Stopover

Hey, I just got word that when my mother and sister go to France in March for a missions trip (I'll be staying home alone for a week), they'll have to stop over in Germany for a couple hours to change flights. Just thought to tell you coz Germany's your thing, and I have to tell everything to someone. Just sayin'... --DorianGray

Ugh, another one. I was so ticked when my sister got to stop for like six hours in Frankfurt on her way to Israel. And I, I who can speak the frickin' language, have never so much as set foot on European soil! (P.S.: Did you guys all know that? That I've never even been to Germany?) Anyway, cool to hear about it, even if I wish it were me. Talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 22:29, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
You haven't been to Germany? o_o I'm taken aback. It's like me not going to... England, or somewhere (which is, in fact, the only "anywhere" I've been so far). --DorianGray
Yeah, it sucks. I just don't have the money to go, especially with the exchange rate between dollars and euros being so bad these days. Actually, where I'd really like to go would be Austria or Switzerland. Austria for two cities: Vienna, to see where all those composers lived and hopefully see the Wiener Philharmoniker and/or Wiener Staatsoper, and Salzburg, to to see Mozart's birthplace. Switzerland to visit a friend in Luzern. Maybe I'll get to go there for dissertation research? I hope so. Heimstern Läufer 22:42, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
Meh, I've never even been off the contenent, if you don't count Vancouver Island. Although I have been all the way down the west coast to Tiijuania, then over to Arizona, and I've flown to Toronto and New York. Still, it would be nice to visit Europe one of these days. Thunderbird 22:56, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
I've never been out of North America either, although I may get to go to China this summer. I've never even been out of the US except once was I was ten (indicentally, it was to British Columbia, home of one Thunderbird). But I'm hoping things will change this summer and that I'll get to go to China. Heimstern Läufer 23:25, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
Sweet, did you drive or fly? If you drove, did you take the I-5 to Vancouver? Thunderbird 00:27, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I doubt it. I drove. :-) Seriously, my family and I actually took the 101 from LA county, where we lived at the time, to Port Angeles. Then we took the ferry to Victoria, where we spent a day or two. Then we drove up some highway, I'm thinking maybe the 17? Whichever one it was, it leads to a place where you can take a ferry to Vancouver. We did that, and then headed back into Washington the usual way on the 5. Heimstern Läufer 02:07, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
Cool. The I-5 is about 5 minutes from my house, it's the route I always take to work. I take it then you went through the Peach Arch Boarder Crossing. If you did, you went through White Rock. And if you took the "Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal", I know exactly what you're talking about with the ferry. Thunderbird 03:27, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Do you guys call it the I-5 in Canada, too? Even though it's signed as provincial highway 99? If so, that's interesting. I know that we did go through the Peach Arch Boarder Crossing, although I wasn't aware of its name at the time. As for the name of the ferry, I'm afraid I don't remember it. Realize that this was when I was about 10, i.e., 1991 or so. So, I don't quite remember all the details. Heimstern Läufer 03:34, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh no, we call it the 99. I was just calling it the I-5 for your sake. Plus it turns into that about 5 minutes south of here. And the "Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal" isn't the specific ferry, just the port it docks at on the mainland. It's no biggie either way. That is cool though, be content in your knowledge that you've been to White Rock. Breifly. Thunderbird 03:43, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
OK. As you may know, the I-5 used to be called U.S. 99 here in the USA, too, but that number was decommissioned. Here in California, we still have a long state route 99 that traces part of the old route of U.S. 99. Oh, and in California, nobody bothers to add the "I" before interstate routes: we just say "the 5" and "the 10" in Southern California or "5" and "80" in Northern California.

is H*R saying "Where is my hat at?"?-- Benol, aka Coach B 22:53, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

"It deliciously didn't work!". He hasn't changed it yet, he was just fixing Mibluvr13's German name. But yeah, I'm waiting for it too... Thunderbird 22:58, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] sOUTH gATE

Yea, I took it from depressio. Bluebry 00:07, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Ah. I was just curious to see if you might be Californian like me. Eh well. I'm always surprised by how few of us there are active on this Wiki: I'm the only one I know of. Yet there are like two active Texans, even though there are only about two thirds as many Texans as Californians, and two Pennsylvanians, even though there's only one third as many of them. Why is the most populous state in the Union so sparsely represented? Eh well, I guess I just have to represent well on my own. Or maybe there are more of us than I know, and the others just don't talk about it like I do. Heimstern Läufer 00:16, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Who are the Texans? Bluebry 00:59, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Dot com's one of them... --DorianGray
And DBK, and me. Count me in. Bluebry 01:02, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Has Matt? is Texan too, I think. And Rogue Leader is Pennsylvanian. Heimstern Läufer 01:20, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Hey, at least you're not representing your whole half of the globe. Plus as far as the Wiki goes, I think I'm one of the few active Canadians, besides Homestramy. Thunderbird 03:31, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Viva La Pennsylvania! It is lonely being the only Pennsylvanian around here. Wait, who is the other? Rogue Leader / (my talk) 03:35, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
DorianGray. Although he's hung up on England, Hawaii and Texas. Heimstern Läufer 03:37, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
And a little bit on Canada and Florida. And a lot on Japan, although I don't know anyone there. --DorianGray

Woah woah hold up Bluebry, I'm from New York. What were you talking about? DBK! 03:39, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey Thunder: A couple of quick facts: Population of Canada: 32.4 million. Population of California: 33,871,648. Therefore, you may represent a whole country, but I still represent more people than you. ;-) Heimstern Läufer 03:40, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Okay okay, don't diss Canada. You may have slightly won on the population, but you get royally P4WND in the landmass department. 9,984,670 km² / 410,000 km² = 24.35 times larger. I'm representing a whole lot of land. Thunderbird 03:48, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
I'm not dissing Canada! There's nothing wrong with being inferior to California! Every place in the world is, after all! :-) But about landmass: If I remember correctly, British Columbia has more landmass than California, Oregon and Washington combined. So yes, you definitely win there. Heimstern Läufer 03:56, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
DBK: If I may ask, upstate or downstate New York? Heimstern Läufer 03:59, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Upstate, right next to Saratoga Springs. DBK! 04:00, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Cool. I've been to Rochester and to New York City. From my map, it looks like you're somewhere between those two cities. (Oh, and I almost moved to NYC once, too, but ended up here in Santa Barbara instead.) Heimstern Läufer 04:04, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
I've been down to NYC a couple times, and I haven't been up to Rochester though. But I have been to Canada! (hehe) DBK! 04:08, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
What part of Canada? (It's a big place). And I've been to New York too. And I stayed at the Pensylvania hotel while I was there, so does that count towards visiting Rogue? Thunderbird 04:11, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Guess, what, T-Bird? I stayed at that hotel, too! That's just too weird. :-) Heimstern Läufer 04:13, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Montreal for a school field trip. And what part of New York did you go to? DBK! 04:14, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Downtown core mostly. It was a blast. Times square every night... Man, that city never sleeps! (And Montreal is hardly the Canada I know. That's the French Provence... That's the thing about Canada. It's like saying "I've been to america", you really gotta pinpont the state/province. It's as different as Texas and New York. (Which I've been to both of). Thunderbird 04:25, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
I haven't traveled that much, I mean I'm only 13. I've done my fair share though. I've been to Pennsylvania too I just remembered. DBK! 04:29, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Well I don't know if Dallas really counts, since it was just a 3 hour stopover. But it was kinda cool to visit there. I was flying solo too, which was kinda fun. Being alone in a state that you don't know anyone in, it was a cool experience. Thunderbird 04:34, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
What about me? I'm from Texas. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 04:36, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

See, like I said, you Texans are all over this place! Not that I'm down on Texas, by any means, though. Some really awesome people come from Texas. Heimstern Läufer 04:38, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Canadians are way cooler than Americans of any kind, and that's that. Seriously (Talk) 12:29, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Woah. Sorry DBK. I though you said you lived in Texas on your page. Must be someone else. ACCIDENT! Heh heh, kinda awkward. Hey look over there! It's one of those rare Starbucks! (Runs off. Runs back, gets a latte, runs off again to Maine where he is a film critic.) Bluebry 22:43, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I know! Can you believe it?

Either our impromptu German lesson yesterday really had a profound effect, or you're not making them hard enough, because I just had to glance at this one to tell what it was. No German–English dictionary, no cheating, no outside help at all. :) — It's dot com 07:40, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Maybe I should search for a ridiculously hard one for the next one. Yeah, that one was pretty easy. I'm really choosing these more because I like them than for any other reason. But maybe I'll find a really hard one soon. LePorello's had some pretty difficult ones in Latin on his page. Heimstern Läufer 07:43, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
P.S.: We'll have to resume that lesson soon.
P.P.S.: I'm still laughing about that thing I said I'd be laughing about! Heimstern Läufer 07:46, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
I'm assuming somebody won before I came. But yeah, I figured it out, what with the picture of squinty Homestar and the fact that the quote involves a small question and a medium sentence, so... yeah... Anyway, I'm kinda interested in learning German. Could you teach me? --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)
And, out of curiosity, what's the German word for your favourite prize, cupcakes? --DorianGray
And where is the "I know!" quote from? For some reason I can't remember. LePorello / T / C 01:24, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

In response to the question concerning cupcakes: It appears from my dictionary that there is no one word for cupcake, and that one must use "kleiner, runder Kuchen", i.e., little, round cake. Heimstern Läufer 02:07, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
I love foreign words that are literal descriptions. The current best is the French word for "potato" which, when broken down, translates as "apple of the ground". --DorianGray
Heh, here's another one for you: Schildkröte, "turtle" which is formed from "shield" and "toad". I think there's a bunch more like that; I'll put them here if I remember. Heimstern Läufer 02:22, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Glitches in Nighttime drive type game...

Sorry about the Glitch post. It actually happened to me that I was able to stay in the left lane indefinitely without dying. I dont know why as now that Ive gone back I can't replicate it.

I HAVE noticed some patterns in car movement though. They seem to be set at the beginning of the game and dont change after that. For instance, I will see the "drunk driver" follow the same route set at the beginning of the game. In other words if he goes left then right....he will continue to use that path until you close the window and restart the game.

I dont know if this also can happen with the other cars. If it can that would explain my one time "no dying" fling. Perhaps it is just a rare instance.

Hey there! If you have a look at the existing Glitches on that page, you'll see that it does already indicate that what you said happens sometimes. As to why, I don't know. So, there'd something of an answer for you. Talk atcha later! Heimstern Läufer 23:48, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
Doh! Silly me. I missed that somehow. Thanks, Mark
