    Where'd You Get Your Username?

    Hello everyone! These types of threads can be fun sometimes. As the title says, how did you come to choose your username? Some I see played with names or dates. Others from characters I recognize. Still others seem comical and quirky, just like us! So if you'd like to share, here's a good place...

    Rookie Gets a Barber Razor

    or...Rookie's last post! 🤣 Tomorrow is September 1st, a restock day for GRUME. And somehow I got it in my head that I need to learn to shave with a straight razor. So tomorrow I go to Sally's and grab a barber razor. But wait! Didn't you say you want a straight? I did. But for right now, I'm...

    New Guy Intros

    Hey everyone, I'm Rookie. Rookie is an old Army nickname. Anyways, onto the Cliff Notes backstory. In the second half of my junior year in high school, I found out I could grow a Van Dyke, or a goatee as it was known back in the 90s. So I felt it my duty to rock it for those who couldn't. I...
