Considering we have all been pushed down to newbie status, this is an appropriate time to ask a newbie question...

What IS "glug"? What is the history behind the art of glugging? It was around before I came aboard, and I never really thought to ask XD

I'm not sure... [In reply to] Can't Post

how long the 'art' of glugging was around on TORn but I know it was around when I first happened upon the boards late 2001. Seems folks kept coming to boards and asking the same questions over and over again or making the same posts (about news and such) over and over again.

"Who played Aragorn first?"
"When is the <insert movie name here> DVD coming out?"

And so on and so forth. So the 'art' of glugging happened. Just a snarky (but done nicely most of the time) reply to the same questions/news being asked/posted over and over and over and over......

Re: [cahobbit] I'm not sure... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's a take on the drinking game.... as in every time someone asks who was the first Aragorn, take a drink...

...at least that's how it was explained to me.

If I'd known that I would have been really utilizing that drinking game. So many drinks lost. Gah! Wink

Re: [Ainu Laire] *glugs along as well* [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's an old version of the rules for the TORN drinking game.


Aelric sez 'Good Morning' - everyone does a shot
Someone even earlier asks 'where's our steward?' - everyone does two shots
Someone claiming to be Kelannar posts in all caps and drones on and on about how PJ is ruining the film - but is actually kidding - everyone does a shot
Someone takes the faux Kelannar serious and posts back complaining about the caps, tells them not to shout and asks them to give PJ a chance - everyone does two shots
Rudy Asbestos-Jones returns - everyone chugs a pint
Some newbie posts for the first time, introduces self and asks if anyone's heard rumors that Arwen's role will be greatly expanded - everyone does a shot
Six or seven posters respond to clarify the Arwen situation - everyone chugs a pint
Blanket post - everyone chugs a pint
Someone posts 'am I the only one still up?' - everyone does two shots

Top 10 list, song parody, or quiz posted, chug a pint

Somewhere I have an updated version, but they changed over the years to define moments on the boards when we were all required to take a drink.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.
`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.

What!!! Has anyone considered organizing a BOYCOTT!?!?!?!?!?!

Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament... There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves on earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the surrender of all, and yet by the taste (or foretaste) of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships (love, faithfulness, joy) be maintained, or take on that complexion of reality, of eternal endurance, which every man's heart desires.

--J.R.R. Tolkien, Letter #43, to his son Michael

to avoid snarky answers. If you can't ignore it when someone posts a question that's been asked 40 times before the last hour, it's better to *glug* them than tell them their idiots.

Thanks for the nostalgia. [In reply to] Can't Post

I often used to make "Is any one still up?" posts. Thank goodness there were Kiwis and other occasional night owls out there.

and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
