    Lurking the forum is pretty relaxing when you take a break from studying, or when you're totally procrastinating.

    But it's not very productive, and it's not very relaxing either when there's a lot of stupid members around raising your blood pressure.

    I have a few thread ideas that might be interesting, I'll make something out of them soon.

    It's nice to see a little spark of enthusiasm 'round these parts once again. After taking a much needed half year vacation I'm getting a bit of a forum itch, and it seems that this could be the time and place to exorcise that. Elias, I've made this suggestion before, and now I'll do it publicly so that people can confirm what a good idea it would be: you should strongly consider reformatting the whole place. Shake-up the layout and skin. Make changes. Make the experience feel new. That's why companies change their logos and store layouts every so often. If it looks new - then it is new to the mind of the consumer. I'd love to see things pick up around here again and nothing would attract some young blood better than that new forum smell. Who's with me?

    Duly noted. However, the problem isn't the way the forum looks (and there's plenty of forum skins available at the bottom, to the left, in any case, and I'm not sure any bulletin based forum looks as good as ABF's default skin). The problem is disloyal members being either too stupid (Aprishitty) or too autistic (Anthrogayica) or too self-interested / narcissistic / quasi-careerist (genome blogs). In any case, you do your part here, and more will follow. I'm working on getting some new members here anyway (good members). We all stick together and work together as a team through word of mouth, and ABF will be super active in a very short time.

    Also, the new forum that'll be launched, will be a sister forum to ABF, more on that later!

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    I fucking know it, and I plead guilty of being lazy. more importantly I had huge personal issues last half a year, which I might share by the end of the year in some kind of bitching thread here. No special thread obviously, just a long rant-o-post.

    FB became my newsfeed over the last couple of years + I got in touch with plenty of old friends from my town who now live too far away from me, to see them F2F (Arek the Skinhead, some Punks, some Metalheads, some "plain" Friends - all my teenage friends-of-misery whom with I drunk an ocean of alcohol and smoked a freight train of weed. Some of them were my fellow psychonauts

    Also I am participating in some FB Genetic Genealogy groups, two of which are quite high-brow (I already "removed myself from" groups which are balkano-turko-armeno-other idiotic-centrisms for the shit they propagated). The issue there is it is really hard to discuss online using FB faggy-buggy post-&-reply system.

    Thanks to polish group I know we have Wielbark aDNA results coming (however w/o details, I did not want to pry all these PhD's of archeology, ethnology and other "stuffology"), I am getting plenty of news in fact from polish archeo/ aDNA / modern DNA backyard.

    Awesome man! Let me just give this statement - I am husband and father and "pack leader" for 1 cat and 1 dog, so my foremost priority is too feed them, care for them and make sure the little guy has best education I can afford, so:

    If I have time - I am changing job soon for mid-managerial position (fucking Director but in small non-corpo company, will get company car and this kind of snob-stuff), this might be end of my online life for many months to come. No idea in fact as now I am working as manuf New Product Implementation/ Project Manager, so the workload might, but does not have to, peak a lot for me. I already work 24/7 sometimes, using FB/ Internetz as intervals between more focused, problem solving periods. Let's see.

    Anyway - I intend to be part of this shit Elias as long/ as intensively as I can.

    Geralt remained silent. Tired, he had nothing to say. “How... How will it happen?” he asked her at last, coldly and without emotion. “I will take you by the hand,” she replied, looking him straight in the eye. “I will take you by the hand and lead you across the meadow, through a cold and wet fog.” “And after? What is there beyond the fog?” “Nothing,” she replied, smiling. “After that, there is nothing.”
