Can't Take The Sky

Take my show,
Take my band,
Take me where there are no fans,
Let them go,
Let them free,
But you can't take the sky from me.

Angel gone,
Buffy too,
Oh my gosh what will I do?
Nothing left,
On TV,
But you can't take the sky from me.

Boreanaz,
Denisof too,
And Marsters just to name a few,
They were great,
We all could see,
But you can't take the sky from me.

Firefly,
Another lost,
Let's say it together, 'F*** You Fox'
Same goes for,
The WB,
But you can't take the sky from me.

But hope comes,
On the big screen,
With Whedon's Serenity,
Cause you can't take the sky from me.

This is the greatest and best personal space in the world...Tribute

Long time ago me and my friend Orangefish here,
We was hitchhikin down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden, there shined a shiny Troll, in the middle of the road.
And he said… “Make, the best space in the world, or I'll flame your convos.”
Well me and Orangefish, we looked at each other and we each said… “Okay.”
And we made the first thing that came to our heads, just so happened to be,
The best space in the world, it was the best space in the world.

Look into my eyes and it's easy to see,
Forty-one and one make two, forty-Two and one make forty-three, it was destiny.
Once every hundred-thousand researchers or so,
When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow and the grass doth grow.

Needless to say, the beast was stunned, whip-crack went his floppy disk,
And the beast was done.
He asked us, “Be you Italics?” And we said “Nay. We are but volunteers!”
Rock! Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah, ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh.

This is not the greatest space in the world, no.
This is just a Tribute.
Couldn't remember the greatest space in the world, no, no.
This is a tribute, oh, to the greatest space in the world,
All right. It was the greatest space in the world,
All right. The greatest space in the world.

And the peculiar thing is this my friends, the personal space we made on that fateful night,
It didn't actually look anything like this space.
This is just a tribute. You gotta believe me.
And I wish you were there. Just a matter of opinion.

This is a Tribute!

Introduction

Hello, great HitchHiker who has hiked a number of miles ranging from 0 to infinity. I'm sure you are not particularly interested in this person space, so you may as well read it to make sure you're not interested. If you are interested, then you'd better read it to find out what it says. Bottom Line - READ IT!

Me, well, I'm just a regular guy, who enjoys not using capitals, unintentionally making a number of typos in my posts, and sometimes rubbing people the wrong way.

Of course, I do have 4 volunteer badges to my name, so I'm the type of guy who is happy to answer questions, talk to people, about anything, and I promise to be very kind. Unless you insult me of course. Then the legal agreement is broken and I may have to call in the Men In Blue Shirts and White Trousers. Yeah, you're afraid of them, aren't you!?

Talk To Spook
Firstly, delete the message in this box. Then give Spook your message, tell him something cool, a joke perhaps. Or maybe you'd like to submit a short story for his Post column, or tell him his personal space rocks.

Whatever it is, it doesn't matter - Spook is happy to read and reply to everything!

Badges
Official h2g2 Aces Badge
Official h2g2 Guru Badge
Official h2g2 Scout Badge
Official h2g2 Sub-editor Badge
Official h2g2 Field Researcher Badge

OK, so all of the above aren't my badges, but hey - they look good, so who cares? the fact is that these badges rock, and since I use brunel I don't get to see these badges very much, so have them on my personal space allows me to see them all the time.

If I'm not about
here are other Aces,
who will be pleased to help you If I'm not about
here are other Gurus,
who will be pleased to help you

If I'm not about
here are other Scouts,
who will be pleased to help you

Nothing

This is most definitely my crowning achievement. I really doubt I will ever write a better entry then this one. After 3 pr threads, heated discussions and arguments, and most importantly, after the entry is increased in size 5 times over, it has made it into the edited guide at A925805.

It is an entry I am very proud of, and can truly say that is, to date, my best entry ever, and I believe it is one of the best entries in the edited guide of all time.

Please tell me your view of the entry by leaving a message on this page.

The H2G2 Doctor Who Group

I am the Founder of
      

I created this group a long time ago. A place where people on h2g2 could go, and talk about all the elements of Doctor Who. So, what are you waiting for? Go to that page, and just join in a conversation, or start a new one about anything Doctor Who, whether it be the TV series, the books, he comics, the audio adventures, the monsters, the actors, the Doctors, other characters, the planets, the Timelords, or whatever you want. If you're a Doctor Who fan, then this is the place for you.

Project: The Ultimate Guide to Doctor Who

Characters from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

So, you enjoy writing fictional entries like that which were found in the fictional version of the guide in Douglas Adams books. Or you don't. You enjoy writing entries in that style with that humour. Or you don't. Afraid of rejection of your hard work by submitting your entry to the Underguide, you wonder what to do with your entry. The answer is here.

The Spaced Out Guide is the place for ALL entries. Whether funny, fictional, factual, about small furry creatures from Alpha Centuri, good, bad, long, short, or whatever - it will be accepted.

The Spaced Out Guide is a hub for entries of all different kinds, and is the one place on H2G2 where there is a 100% guarantee your entry will be accepted and included. This gives you the chance to have your entry become a part of something, and all writers should be encouraged to write what they feel, then have a place for their work to go.

Click on the link below to view all the entries in the Spaced Out Guide so far, and to submit an entry, simply post a message or conversation at the bottom of that page containing the name(s) of the entry/entries you want to submit, and the A number(s). Your entry will then be included as soon as possible.

The Spaced Out Guide Menu System

I was one of the first members of The Terranic Army, and am the Second in Command of the whole army. I am also the regiment leader of the Smeg Regiment.

To join the army then post a message in the Signing in room.

If you want to join the army and want to guarantee being in the Smeg Regiment, then post a message in the Smeg Signing in room.

The World War Battlefield is the place to go to fight in a battle. You can start a battle there, although the best thing to do is join a battle.

The large active battle at the moment is the Ultimate World War Zone: All Armies War.

However, it would be wrong to forget the success of The Smiley Battle.

I have previously been involved with 2 columns in the post:

&

Spook X

All the entries written for each column can be found in The Spook Archives.

Got A Problem?
DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!

If you do, then there's a page you can go to to find advice about what to do. In fact, it would be better if you looked at the page before you get a problem, as once you have a problem you'll probably have a problem seeing the page.

Surviving Problems With H2G2

Emotions
A smiley going through several mood changes

When I started h2g2 I started a study to create the most comprehensive list of emotions in the universe. I am now bringing that back. If you know any emotions that I don't have on my list then tell me them through a conversation. This is the list so far:

  • LOVE
  • HATE
  • Like
  • Dislike
  • Compassion
  • Concern
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Despair
  • Confussion
  • Fear
  • Confidence

I have come up with many theories about the different types of emotions. My initial theory was that there were 2 different types of emotions; Good Emotions and Bad Emotions. These originate from Love and Hate. This was a pretty good theory until I came across what I have come to know as Neutral emotions like Concern. Concern can sometimes be a good thing, but can also be a bad thing.

As my search for emotions continues I'm sure I will discover more about emotions.

Life

Also when I started h2g2 I started a study of LIFE. I am now continuing my study of Life. This is what I will be studying:

  • The meaning of Life
  • What happens after Death?
  • Do people have souls?
  • Is there Life on other planets?
  • As I discover new things I will include them here. Any help on my search is welcome.

    Food and Drink
    Fish and chips swimming in the sea

    I have decided to start a study on food and drink. There are many different types of foods and drinks, and different types of meals. Different people like different things.

    I will update this as I find new things.

    Blue

    I am obsessed with the colour Blue. It is my favourite colour. It is everywhere. There are blue seas, blue skies, blue oceans, blue towels, blue toothbrushes, blue carpets, blue paints, blue classic goo, blue wallpaper, blue trousers, and blue books. In my studies, I have found that there is more blue in the world than any other colour.

    Please contribute different items and foods that are blue for a collaborative entry I am writing, by either posting here or on the entry page. The entry is called 'The 101 Blues'.

    I am a Keeper

    I am the:

    Keeper of the endless pursuit to find new and wonderful ways to annoy, confuse, mystify, scare and interest people, and to make people understand the complications of understanding that it is impossible to understand things unless we understand how to understand, and we cannot do that unless we can understand, and we cannot do that until we've understood how to understand.

    Isn't life greatcool !!!!!!!!
    The Royal h2g2 Procrastinators Society

    I procrastinate all the time,
    which is why I will soon be a member of
    The Royal h2g2 Procrastinators Society

    Not only am I an ACE, but I am also a Guardian Angel. You can call me Saint Spook, as I am the famous (or not) Patron Saint of Sex and Doctor Who.

    Q. What did the Sea, say to the Shore?
    A. Nothing, it just waved!

    A. You're too young to smoke!

    My 42

    It is a myth on h2g2 that to be a true researcher you have to be able to make 42 out of your researcher numbers. This is how you do mine:

    1-8+39+5+5=42

    And that is My 42.

    I wanna heal, I wanna feel, what I thought was never real!
    I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long!
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel, like I'm close to something real!
    I think I've found something I've wanted all along!...
    Somewhere I belong!
