Welcome to the FSM Ready Room!
Posted by Tim Kidwell on Monday, December 17, 2012 10:36 AM

Hi all,

You'll notice that a couple of threads that haven't had a proper home have been moved in here, including the trivia threads.

Feel free to kibitz about whatever strikes your fancy before heading out into the scale modeling forums. But remember, keep it civil, respect each other, no politics or religion, and keep it PG-13. Basically, if you saw it in "Inception," it's okay here.

Have fun and happy modeling!

Tim

Last time I heard the term "Inception" used was in the movie "Blade Runner".
I didn't notice any soft drink size restrictions mentioned, so I'm OK with the new Ready Room.

Should 'No Religion' include people asking for prayers to be said? Prayers are a religious thing.

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you before now. I was out of the office yesterday afternoon.

Hmmmm, I recommend "Inception," but I suppose any of Nolan's Batman movies would be good examples. As for Nexus 6 incept dates, I think we'll keep those to ourselves for the time being.

Have fun and happy modeling!

Tim

~sigh~ I hear Tesco advertised on internet radio all the time, but really miss the chocolate-dipped shortbread biscuits that M&S used to carry in their Canadian stores. Crying

I just checked Vance and they are not on the M&S website, so they must have stopped them full stop.

And what are doing doing shopping in M&S when you could shop in Tesco's and spend the money you save on models. tut tut.Big Smile
