After they'd gone, the guy turned to me, clearly enthusiastic about our potential double-date that evening, and asked me what she'd been saying to me about 2012. I told him, she believes that in 2012, the Earth will literally stop rotating, and then start spinning in the opposite direction. He replied, clearly struggling for words, "That's... crazy." I could see him trying to weigh out the potential for lusty, dusty romance with the burden of enduring an utterly wacky and self-certain new-agey form of proselytizing. I bid him a good day and got up to leave. "Do you think you'll meet up with them?" he asked me, a glint in his eye that I read as a kind of desperate request for back-up. I reflected on the tens of thousands of other interesting people to potentially connect with and advised him not to settle for any connection that felt so danged askew.

The best answer is that the admins are waiting for the theme and that Larry Harvey had a hard year and hasn't come up with one yet.

And maybe if I'd gone to law school I'd be a lawyer. If I had time to read the e-playa all fucking day, like some people, I'd have looked for it, but as it is I haven't been able to keep up with the e-playa for months, largely because I have a family and a job.
But, thanks for the snarky answer, Crypto. It's nice to see the e-playa hasn't changed.

Maybe if you knew how to use the search function you would have become a lawyer with a real job.

I don't remember meeting you at any of the well publicized Meet & Greets since they started years ago, but I've only made the last two; so to me (and probably quite a few others on here) you're the anonymous one posting like it's 1998, not JK.
If you don't like reading someones posts please feel free to plonk (or "foe") them & you'll never have to read them again.

Please consider the scenario:
A long time eplayan member gets a chance to do a little reading through the forums and comes across a topic he/she finds interesting. While reading the topic, he/she has a sudden thought - "Hey.. there is no theme announement on the main site... I wonder if anyone might have an idea about what the fuck is going on..." Said eplayan posts question that popped into mind.
Are we really going to fault a person for this? Are we really expecting a person to research every thought and question before asking it? It isn't like yet another new thread was STARTED... A question was posed that could have been referred to an active thread without snark.
Just a thought and I know there are opposing views and fully expect to see them...
But damn people - like I said - it wasnt a new thread - it was just a question.. Now I am wondering if I need to "research/search" every question that pops into my head or risk being sniped or belittled...
That kind of bums me out....
