"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Mal: Define "interesting".
Wash: *shrug* "Oh God, oh God, we're all gonna die"?
Mal: This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode.

He's there. :p

This is not a signature.
You did not see this.
It was all a dream.
You will not tell anyone about this.

Now go and read this signature again.

So, you actually bothered to scroll down, eh? If you're that bored, you might as well take a look at the links above.

I want a hint.

It does have something to do with the community, doesn't it?

Or is it some FS2 stuff?



When it happens, will we notice it fast?

Actually I believe that Sandwich and I have given you enough hints. If you still don't get it, well you need a better screen.

If you want to find out what it is, you'd be wise to re-read this whole thread as if it were an old quest. :D

Or heck, just wait another 6.5-12.5 hours. :D

I must issue an apology to you all... I've been (re)playing The Longest Journey for the past 2 days (beat it, too, and I didn't remember a single solutiob from 4 years ago when I first played it), which kinda inspired the whole "figure out the secret" motif I got going here. ;)
