If you could one hour with any person (famous or not famous) that you most likely won't be able to meet, who would it be?
For me, Heath Ledger. I'd like to talk to him about being the Joker. And also I'd love to get to the know the guy. My parents were originally from Australia so there would be alot to talk about.
For me, Ted Bundy - so I could give him directions to your house, OP.
Really OP? What is your problem? This obsession is not healthy. Seek treatment or get a friend.
Easiest question for me to answer in the world: Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. The greatest man of the 19th century and the greatest man of the 20th century. Both men completely and totally human, funny and of course geniuses.
thank God the Internet and DL weren't around when Jon-Erik Hexum died. I was obsessed with that for years.
Eventually, I put it down.
Good luck, OP.
You'll need it.
Get over this fucking HL obsession.
Would I be allowed to slap her face viciously and pull her hair?
Queen Elizabeth (on truth serum)
Vladimir Putin. We could get shirtless and wrestle bears together, then do shots of vodka, followed by a steam.
I'm fascinated by the guy. He is just a balls out bad ass.
Or Adam from Workaholics, he is so cute.
I would absolutely love to meet the OP of this thread (the Heath troll) and spend an hour with him. In a locked room. With him tied up, and me with a lead pipe.
Sophia Loren - just to gaze at that face and talk about her career with her.
Ditto, Julie Christie.
Hillary, a couple of bottles of wine, and some girl talk. Between what really went down between her and Bill during his presidency to all the places she has been as SoS - I imagine that would be a hell of a fun chat!
Heath, while a good actor in some of his movies, he seemed like a real bore in interviews, all mumbles and just uncomfortable. I dont get the obsession.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
