Alcoholocaust was a writer here once. Nicked that bit from his username

Happy New Oblivion

Happy New Oblivion
One and all!
For what is a New Year
But a single revolution
‘Round a star
Hitchhiking on Atlas’ back?

What is one year
To a floating rock’s dance
That has completed its finite circuit
4.5 billion times?

So a toast!
To oblivion
And to our own
And naïveté,
Rejoice in the briefness of our existence.

I raise my cup to you
And drink deep
The alcoholocaust.

So I say, sweet cheers one and all!
We greet oblivion with open arms
Embracing it as much as it embraces

Happy New..

-fardo baggins
With love

  So who's counting? Time is an illusion, so it is said by both scientists and mystics. There was a time... but I digress. Bourbon is not an illusion, but who's counting? Toast to oblivion, or until oblivion... That is the question. To the briefness of our existence? Now you sound like a silly mortal, you know better. But then, I am not the same man I was twenty years ago, nor twenty years before that, nor twenty years before that, and certainly will not be twenty years hence. Cheers!

Just a few thoughts about those long ago days when this site meant so much to so many. How many of us will stay now, and for how long?
