Hi.
I'm not a member of the IQFC (as of yet anyways), but I want to know, how can I register to attend the UK convention in May? I can't find anything on QW or QOL that can help answer my question :(

Join the fan club, fan club members only, and their friends I think.

Yes you do have to be a member of the fan club to be sent a booking form.
I paid my last instalment today - 53 days to go.

Then of course there's the IQ test.

Never mind Dark, some other life maybe...

Well, it's for (1.) fan club members and (2.) their friends and bear in mind that:

1. You're not a fan club member
2. You're not a friend of Penetration_Guru who's a fan club member

So you're unsuccessful in both conditions. But don't give up yet - if you're a stepford, it will earn you a bonus point and you will be allowed to the Convention.

Well that's it I'm ripping up my Fan Club membership card of 23 years, Jacky will let anyone in now!

If by some miracle you get a passport and airport security let you through, I'll be waiting for you Dark, I'm sure I can find somewhere to store you until the feds arrive.

No offense, Togg, but why do you dislike me? I don't feel this is called for.

And (edit) the UK customs can't prevent me from entering a country based on what I type online. That's invasion of personal privacy and opinion, imo (for lack of a better term :P )

"2. You're not a friend of Penetration_Guru who's a fan club member"

The likelyhood of him and I being friends is as likely as George W. Bush Jr. being buddy-buddy with Osama bin Laden or Jean Chretien (the latter, who if anyone didn't know, was the Prime Minister of Canada for ten awful years)

Sorry for the triple posting, but I have another question for you, Togg. What does your above quote (from your sig) mean? I kind of understand what it is saying, but I can't put down what it means in words.

Wow! Honestly, that looks as if it were real, that pic! Someone should send it to Mr. Bush himself, see what he thinks!

I made an error in the part about keeping me from entering the UK. I meant to say UK customs instead of 'you'. Apologies to Mr. Togg

Ha! If I was going to, I wouldn't have said "Someone should send this pic..."

Btw. I wonder if his replies would be as arrogant as SeƱor May's :I ?

Is it in Rhyl again this year? I might just wait outside the entrance and see if anyone feels sorry for me and takes me in :-)

As far as I'm concerned Dark the majority of your posts are either offensive or just plain stupid.

But yes Psyche Star is correct, your comments about 911 combined with your previous ones about your views on homosexuality are so offensive to me that I have no time for you. Your comments on 911 were so offensive that having read this board for more than a year I finally decided to start posting here to let you know how I felt.

Having spent much time working in New York and to know the community well I was appauled at that act of terrorisum as I'm sure every sane person was, and in fact I still don't know the fate of an old friend of mine who working in the towers at the time. Your comments make / made you no better than those who commited the crime to me, and I will never either forgive you or forget your views. You are an uneducated fool with little regard for others.

You post here without any real grasp of the world around you or how to conduct yourself in public, you should be ashamed of yourself, you do not deserve to have the freedom to speak openly, many have fought for and paid with their lives for this simple pleasure over the years, and in my opinion your posts are a betrail of their efforts. You should spend some time living in an oppressive regime, that might teach you a little about how lucky you are to be born in a country that allows its citizens to speak openly.

As for your comments on homosexuality, well I wonder if you have ever bothered to listen to some of the lyrics of Queens songs, do you not understand that as a band they have always supported ALL faiths, nations, and genders, and sexual preferences. If not what the hell are you doing supporting a band like Queen?

As for my tagline, it is form Mark Twain, and in particular it applies to you, basically shut the fuck up unless you have something sensible to say!

I refuse to believe it's possible to be like Dark seems to be. Sheer idiocy is impossible and therefore he must be pretending to some extent - which on the other hand makes him a nitwit on another level. So it's very complicated to try to explain Dark's goofiness.

Thanks PS, sadly I lost touch with him after he left the company I was with, he went to work in one to the investment banks located in the towers and the last I heard he was missing.

Too much of the coverage of the 911 event made it look like a video game to the kids that were watching, seeing the towers collaps in slow motion from ever angle becomes like a Bruce Willis film before long, and numpties like Dark have no idea what effect these things have on peoples lives, it's not until you have kids of your own and understand just how dangerious the world is.

The guy in question was not even a very close friend just a drinking mate, but having been standing at the top of the towers two weeks prior to them falling and personally knowing so many people that lost family it becomes very real. Kids like Dark that shoot their mouth off without any comprehension of what they are talking about deserve little simpathy for their lack of understanding when they keep making the same mistake.

Several folks I used to work with lost either brothers or sisters in the attack, sadly the banks had been doing a fairly major hiring season just prior to September and many talented IT folk went to work there.
