Hey! Do you guys (fluther) feel like you were in a nice, quiet, calm pool--and suddenly all these people strange, nekid people are doing cannon balls in it?

Asked by Dutchess12 (1590points) March 24th, 2009

Sorry ‘bout that!! I kind of wish something like that had happened on wis.dm at some point. May be somewhat frustrating, but also socially interesting.

Actually I’m having a pretty good swim.

Dutchess12's avatar

YAY!! :) It’s been a bit rough for us too, but interesting! Like…surfing when you never have before. I’m in Kansas so….well, wait…I HAVE surfed, but on a card board box down a weed covered hill….and it hurt when I fell. My kids made me do it.

Ha! It was never quiet & calm in here, but I love your analogy nonetheless! It’s great having some of you here, for exactly the reason you mentioned – it’s interesting to have new insights & views to share.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Haha…awesome question!

Dog's avatar

No because the pool was already filled with wild, partying, splashing neekid flutherites.

Aethelwine's avatar

We like to do cannon balls too!

Harp's avatar

Spiced things up, for sure :)

Ah, it’s good to get shaken out of your complacency every now and then, right?

Tranquility is overrated.

bythebay's avatar

Were we tranquil, Harp? :)

Harp's avatar

It’s also relative :)

miasmom's avatar

I think it’s great…I was a bit surprised with the amount of questions from newbies, but that’s just because it was alot of questions from newbies that I didn’t know anything about, it takes time to get to know someone and now there are alot of new someones. :) Sometimes we can get a bit flat, so fluffing the pillows is a good thing. We’re glad you’re sticking around and giving us a chance!

DutchCat, several of the users here have been or have officially come over from another social site, Askville.

It’s different here. All change takes a bit getting used to. I’ve made some nice connections here and hope you will, too!

cak's avatar

We were quiet? Tranquil? Us??? No way! You just caught us all taking a big collective breath. Back to the party, now! Welcome!

TenaciousDenny's avatar

Just don’t pee in the pool! Nahh, I’m just kidding. Let ‘er rip.

marinelife's avatar

No, no, come on in the water is fine and the party is in full swing. I like the music you guys brought. Who wants a beer?

This thread is making me miss summer something fierce. Can I get a corona with lime?

Harp's avatar

Oh, and don’t sit on the pool drain.

Dutchess12's avatar

@miasmom—yeah…on wis.dm sometimes people would change accounts, but even if you didn’t know it you could spot them instantly…there’s a difference between the questions a REAL newbie asks, and the questions someone who is familiar, at least generally, with this kind of thing…

Harp's avatar

@DutchCat We’ve got our own version of that here.

jeanna's avatar

@3or4monsters Will you ever get a Summer there? If not, come visit me and I’ll have the corona waiting for you.

pekenoe's avatar

Nice quiet pool on occasion with moments of turbulence, it will be again soon. May have to categorize questions though so we can sort quicker.

We’ve had our moments, I like a good stimulative debate on hot button issues.

Welcome all, enjoy. A great bunch now greater.

Dutchess12's avatar

Somebody help me! I don’t have Pnl on my fluther list yet…and I need to send her a pm…how do I find her??

JellyB's avatar

LMAO!!! Good one! :D

Harp's avatar

@DutchCat If you go to the search window (upper right of this page) and enter any username, it will find them for you.

Kelly27's avatar

@essieness….......Polo….............

bythebay's avatar

Oooooo – what’s that in the bottom of the pool?

SpatzieLover's avatar

<grabs the pennies> Got ‘em!

Dutchess12's avatar

@jonsblond you said, “Who’s ready for a belly flop contest?”....But…but…a couple of our people are PREGNANT!!!

JellyB's avatar

@DutchCat You can als go to my profile, PNL is part of my fluther! :)

Aethelwine's avatar

@DutchCat We always need a cheering section!

Dutchess12's avatar

@JellyB—found her and added her…

Allie's avatar

Look at you all having a pool party. =]

SuperMouse's avatar

I am sitting on the edge dangling my feet and doing a cannonball myself now and then. I am really enjoying the pool party! Now excuse while I head over to the swim up bar for a nice margarita…

Allie's avatar

If anyone does a belly flop, send them over to me at the First Aid stand. ;-]

Dog's avatar

<—- Joining supermouse at the bar before next cannonball.

Dutchess12's avatar

It’s rather wet around here, isn’t it!

Dog's avatar

Dutchcats do not like water?
Dogs do. Grin

Dutchess12's avatar

@Dog… Well, I’m up in a tree sticking my tongue out at you!!

Bluefreedom's avatar

This pool is huge and there is room enough for everybody. Please, before engaging in a cannonball maneuver though, look out for me and don’t jump on my head. And a warm welcome to all of you new cannonballers. =)

MacBean's avatar

@Harp: ... Guts by Chuck Palahniuk?

Harp's avatar

@MacBean Safety first!

scamp's avatar

Wow! So many in the pool and no one has peed in it yet!! That’s a good sign!!

Aethelwine's avatar

Wait a minute, who did this?

Strauss's avatar

@jonsblond DON’T TOUCH THAT!

Dutchess12's avatar

@Bluefreedom Thank you for the welcome!—Um, sorry about your head. It was kind of crazy there for a bit…. :(

Bluefreedom's avatar

@DutchCat. You’re welcome. The head is now healed also. =)

Zen's avatar

Watcha eating? Chocolate from Vietnam?

JellyB's avatar

@Zen Actually, it was fries with BBQ sauce. ;)

Zen's avatar

It’s the next day already, how many fries were there in your mouth, sheesh!

;-) Muah.

JellyB's avatar

@Zen LOL! Hey, i was hungry. And after the fries came the pizza. And then the chocolate cake. ;)

Zen's avatar

Always chocolate – I knew it!
