GRARing Hour? February 18, 2011 6:32 PM   Subscribe

I propose we make a new time slot between Friday evening and Saturday morning called GRARing hour.

Imagine instead of the usual "flag and move on", we could just say, "oh well its the graring hour." Or one might say, "The graring hour grows nigh, turn off the Internets and give hugs."

I think this overlaps precisely with "put down the booze hour."

There's no reason you both can't have your way. Get pb to make it so no new posts can occur in metatalk between 5pm Friday and 8am Monday.

And I am for the graring hour if we can make it so it only lasts an hour. "Um, sorry, your five minutes late!"

IT IS BETWEEN FRIDAY EVENING AND SATURDAY MORNING AND SO IT IS TIME TO MAKE DINOSAUR NOISES

I'M A T-REX GRAAAAAAAAAARRRR

GRRRAAAAAAARRR BITING

BITES FROM ME RAR I'M A T-REX

You know what, you're right, this is a great idea.

If "grar" means something different to you than making dinosaur noises and being a dinosaur then I am sorry but rules are rules.

I'm fine with RARG, if that helps.

[reminds me of the old Trappist joke (even though their vow of silence seems to be a myth): The monks all sit together, after a year of silence, awaiting their yearly hour of talk. The hour strikes. An elderly monk raises himself slowly and creakily, and says: "as I was saying..."
-- Translated into this here: welcome back to GRAR. Somewhat weak, though...]

I have lately taken to reading very bad science fiction. It is a relief after spending a day having people ask me HAY WINNA CAN YOU MAKE A BUTTON ON THE DATABASE THAT LETS ME AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE A COMPLETELY INCOMPATIBLE SYSTEM AND ALSO BREWS SOME COFFEE AND PERHAPS SINGS A CHEERFUL TUNE WHILST DOING SO? IN THE NEXT TEN MINUTES WOULD BE GREAAAAT.

So I'm reading this fantastically bad set of books right now by a person named Murray Leinster. They're so bad they're awesome. MED SHIP EXCERPT FOLLOWS:

He headed the little ship downward and as it gathered velocity he went over the briefing-sheets covering this particular world. He'd never touched ground here before. His occupation, of course, was seeing to the dissemination of medical science as it developed under the Med Service. The Service itself was neither political nor administrative, but it was important. Every human-occupied world was supposed to have a Med Ship visit at least once in four years. Such visits verified the state of public health. Med Ship men like Calhoun offered advice on public-health problems. When something out of the ordinary turned up, the Med Service had a staff of researchers who hadn't been wholly baffled yet. There were great ships which could carry the ultimate in laboratory equipment and specialized personnel to any place where they were needed. Not less than a dozen inhabited worlds in this sector alone owed the survival of their populations to the Med Service, and the number of those which couldn't have been colonized without Med Service help was legion.

There's a little semi-sentient cat/dog/pet thing that is completely immune to all disease which only wants to land on planets to be adored and drink coffee. The main character (Calhoun) is maniacally devoted to his duty while apparently hating people with a passion, so there's no reason for him to be so fixated on his job. Thus far he's been trapped behind an electric pulse fence by a dastardly capitalist trying to take over a whole planet, fought off a group of people who were using disease to clear out another world for their own settlers, and saved a whole other world from crippling ignorant isolation while having his deepest emotional conversations with the little cat/dog/pet thing that only says 'Chee!'

And yet he soldiers on, not using any contractions, explaining the fundamentals of his world in lavishly obsessive detail to his cat/dog/pet thing, not evincing any motivations to do his job other than he just does because he's a MED SHIP MAN. I'm waiting for him to fall in love with an unsuitable woman and have to choose between her and his job, but I'm almost done with the series and it may not happen.

What it needs are some dinosaurs. I bet he'd cure them, too, while giving the distinct impression that he is just doing this job because they wired a robo-compulsion into his brain with a computer-simulation-device, invented by the Artinians in the twenty-second century to enforce the rules of the MED SHIP by activating specific brain impulses through electronic beacon pulses after the great galactic war wiped out the previously existing medical infrastructure. chee!

You all should go read them.

OK I gotta tell you guys, I opened this thread because I've had a pretty crappy couple of weeks including spending V-Day alone after getting emailed a rejection from a grad school (seriously, I think the admissions department should take that day off) and I was looking for a little Primal Grar Therapy, but then I saw VELOCIRAPTORS and HONEY BADGERS and now I'm ready to just go enjoy Happy Hour instead.

Strange story velociraptor story. My lower body is...well I have trouble walking upstairs so my personal trainer makes me do without the railing which results in this wobbly, little fists balled, awkward uneven steps which I dubbed my " Baby Velociraptors on Ice" impersonation. He liked it so much, he uses it not only with other clients, but has shared it with other trainers. So now apparently there is a whole gym filled with ice skating velociraptor wannabes.

wow, for the skeptical, this is like, a real thing... there are even political parties based on GRAR!
Agrarianism and agrarian have two meanings. One refers to a social philosophy or political philosophy which stresses the moral superiority of a rural life based on farming, as opposed to the supposed corruption of city life, with its banks and factories. Thomas Jefferson was a famous representative agrarian[1]....ones own self; and encourages passionately hating stuff that is essentially innocuous (or alternately, things occasionally deserving of outrage).
The other definition made me outraged so I ate it. The more you know. anyone see what I did there? I hacked some wikipedia to twist and make it say what I wanted it to; next, hacking a saw, with words, to make a hacksaw. Next Week, analyzing the Herman/Chomsky Propaganda model to make me a Flak-Saw and four other things.
/not-agrarianist. But seriously, if it was good enough for Wiki-Thomas Jefferson...
