    The history is actually pretty rough. It is filled with death threats (AlecStar), banned members (too many to name), and the whole club fiasco (lolpowerusers, which I was a member of!). Back then there were few mods, and they participated in the whole bit of it. We have come a long way since then! It was the Wild West then, now it is... uhh... stable, for lack of a better term. The forum has matured cause the members have matured with it. I hope I have matured at least.

    Yes, that was me. Somehow the idea of questionable german rock video and the hot girl thread.....alcohol......insomnia


    Yeah, it was me.


    Serious question DM, if I wanted to use a bit of the sticky without smoke, what is the best way. Just a bit of recreational use and to help me sleep hopefully.

    I've not seen it either. However a quick google has revealed a possibility, however.

    Is it these piccies over at GN perhaps??

    I have seen that done.

    How much does it take to make you want to sleep?
    I haven't been around it for years, what are the going rates? I'm almost thinking about trying for medical, I really don't sleep or sleep well. From what my wife tells me it makes you feel stupid, and I don't think a couple nights a week of that would be all bad. :toast:

    Currently I am drinking a bit more than I would like to, have cut down my caffeine intake to almost nothing, and nothing in the last half of the day, tried a few different sleep aids. My brain just keep going with shit I have to do, or would like to do, or ideas.

    Yes, deep sleep! No it does not take much when you have it made. Just slip it into a warm drink, or on a slice of toast. Really anything you can think of.

    If you only use it before bed. Then it works like wonders.

    Anymore on this should go onto GN. Seeing I know and you know this is WAY off topic.....

    Yet another reason I like TPU.....even on derails you can learn things at times:p

    And ... mainly because there is no 14oldish "VS" topics , we all know both are neck and neck, when noobs talk , they only see FPS , there is a "best" only temporarily, there is no ultimate best forever.

    There was a thread somewhere about when GPUs came out and how long were they better than the competition.

    Yeah, there's ATI guys (no AMD, I will NOT stop calling it ATI) and nVidia guys in here, quite balanced I'd say between the two camps and they rarely have a fight. Same goes for Intel/AMD.
