what I'm wondering is, I'm wondering why sgoralnick has an icon with a patch over the eye and "appears" not to have known anything about the new logo? Is it some kind of a conspiracy? Were you asked to start a thread pretending that you didn't know what it was? How many others were involved in this game? I'm wondering now if all the threads started in the help forum were not just really a setup .....meant to create some hoopla...etc etc etc etc

Stewart, how about an instant translator function so people like me won't get a headache trying to figure out how pirates talk? It's making me feel soooooo inadequate.

That way, at least for a day the others won't know that I'm not one of the kewl kids.

This is so stupid. Please give me an account option not to be involved in these kind of dumb activities.

Oh... Don't forget to celebrate this week:
Tomorrow: We celebrate the opening of the first railway station.
The day after tomorrow: Don't miss the International Day of Peace. And it is Minitiature Golf Day. And it is World Graduate Day. And don't forget the starting of Yom Kippur.
This Saturday: We remember that Band-Aid was invented in 1920. I bet you are also looking forward to Dear Diary Day. And Flickr must be filled with ice cones for they were invented on this day. Also, the US Post Office was opened on this day.
Sunday: Of course we celebrate the first day of Autumn. And hurray it is Good Neighbor Day. And last but not least it is Great American Potpie Day.

Simple, take a day off, and come back on September 20th. Fun over.

More seriously, the two differences that aren't down to people acting silly are the logo and Explore. Hardly a giant imposition, I'd think, and you've never been able to opt out of people acting silly.
