It seemed only apt to both the general theme and target audience of this, our newly founded Blogging locale, that we start with those words.
As all geeks (well those of the IT fraternity at least) will know, the first thing anyone should do in a new programming language is to make a script that displays these words, big and proud for all the world to see. So there they are… We are here… The Stupor has landed.
Thinking of an actual subject for a first post has been somewhat trickier than coming up with the title and introduction. Where to start?? My theories on time and space or the relativity there-of, politics from one side of the spectrum to the other, a review of an album or game recently purchased, a funny video or a photo of a cat that looks like Hitler… Where to begin??…
With all these things whirling around in my head just waiting to splurge forth. I think the trick to making this work will be like trying to harness the power of a nuclear reaction, without it exploding your face/ass/county off. An amount of discipline and control will be called for, but I’m confident that me and my fellow Stupefiers can direct our minds whilst also supplying many interesting insights and hilarious anecdotes along the way.
I assume that the only people reading this now (in the year of our Lord 2008) will be you three (Gazz, Neil and Ralph) and our collected family and friends. However, I predict great things here, so for all you completists that have skipped right back to catch the very first post those guys did before they moved to Hollywood and “sold out”… Hey future yous!!! How about that weather, pretty damn hot isn’t it? Remember that credit crunch thing? We never thought that would go on so long. What a shame about Obama, it was good while it lasted. Oh and good work on avoiding that flu pandemic too.
Ever the optimist,
