Welcome to General Chat - GAW Community Area
This General Chat area started off as a place for people to talk about things that are off topic, however it has quickly evolved into a community and has become an integral part of the GAW experience for many of us.
Based on its evolving needs and plenty of user feedback, we are trying to bring some order and institute some rules. Please make sure you read these rules and participate in the spirit of this community.
Rules for General Chat
Be respectful to each other. This is of utmost importance, and comments may be removed if deemed not respectful.
Avoid long drawn out arguments. This should be a place to relax, not to waste your time needlessly.
Personal anecdotes, puzzles, cute pics/clips - everything welcome
Please do not spam at the top level. If you have a lot to post each day, try and post them all together in one top level comment
Try keep things light. If you are bringing in deep stuff, try not to go overboard.
Things that are clearly on-topic for this board should be posted as a separate post and not here (except if you are new and still getting the feel of this place)
If you find people violating these rules, deport them rather than start a argument here.
Feel free to give feedback as these rules are expected to keep evoloving
In short, imagine this thread to be a local community hall where we all gather and chat daily. Please be respectful to others in the same way
TFW you are waiting for tomorrow's General to post an observation you want more than 2 people to see/converse upon etc
@JoshYoder I’m being notified by passengers on a Southwest flight departing Las Vegas that the captain became incapacitated soon after takeoff this morning. He was removed from the flight deck and replaced by a non Southwest pilot who was commuting on that flight. This is now the fifth pilot incapacitation that I’m aware of in the past two weeks. I will post more details as they become available. @SouthwestAir

Currently watching the Twin Lakes eagle cam on Trilight cable here in east Tennesee, channel 955. The little ones [three] have hatched and are getting big, or at least two of them are. The third one hatched late and is still small, but he looks like he's holding his own. Pretty cool, mom and dad bring them fish and even brought a rabbit up to the nest last week. They make quick work of it, that's for sure.
Awesome! It’s rare there are 3 hatchlings. I’ve watched an eagle cam in Ft Myers for years. Daily blessings and adventures. Our beautiful female, Harriet went missing over a month ago but dad is successfully raising two eaglets so far.
I'm wondering if I ever do get an avatar if they have a frog wearing a US Navy dixie cup white hat. That would be totally cool.
If you have a gif, send it over .. we will see if we can use it.
That would be great, but honestly I have no idea how to do that.
So basically Pepe Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man combo?
Yeah, that would work, I guess. Worth a shot. I tried to find Pepe wearing a dixie cup white hat but didn't have much luck. Getting an avatar would be cool but it is not that important. I served in the Navy as an enlisted back in the '80s and was just wondering.
I can't seem to start a new post, anyway will the United States extradite bill gates to the Philippines? They are charging him with pre meditated murder!
Officially? Any official government docs? Not one of the common law proceedings ?
It was on TS, all I know is that the royal family had some vax injuries, and that they have put out a arrest warrant for gates on the charge of premeditated murder
Thats been going on for a while, but havent seen anything official yet
Oh how I hope and pray that is true. Wish we would get him , if not the Philippines will do. Just get him !
Hey folks. Good to be back after a healthy break. Did I miss anything interesting?
No shit, like 2 or 3 things happened, but now it's back to bupkis
You awesome Frens. Thanks for being such a loving bunch.
Not a thing. Not a single fricken' thing.
Nothings been habbening. Nix. Nada. Things have been as placid as lake with no wind being sung to by Placido Domingo in a soft, gentle voice.
But I digress.
Hang on, oh yeah. There was that ONE thing....
P R E C I P I C E incoming!!!!
I love all you Frens so much it hurts a little. I pray we all meet in person one day soon.
Welcome back friend!
How many minutes where you away? 🤣
This time makes 3. Thanks for caring enough to remember.
Seems like everything is happening all the time.
Pluto entering Aquarius on 3-23-23 has been called "the granddaddy of all transits, and hands down the most important planetary shift of the year, if not the decade."
Thanks for this. I heard in a recent video that Pluto's astrological shift actually signifies transfer of power from top to bottom. In fact, this is the very reason why the Cabal pushed so hard to declare it not a planet, because in their simple minds, by declaring it as such, they can stop it from happening.
I also heard that the last time it was in acquarius was just after the American revolution. Glorious, isnt it?

YES! I haven't seen Michigan Frog in a while.
It's a small club, but we're in it!
I have not posted in GC before. Is this where an urgent prayer request should be posted? Because they seem to all be in other places. My precious friend's husband is barely alive due to hosp incompetence. Went in for an emerg surgery on Mar 1. Hospital PUT TUBE IN WRONG AND PUT 1 LITRE OF FLUID IN EACH LUNG. Drained one and say couldn't drain the other?! He was unconscious for 5 days and took 3 days to wake up. is now in ICU "for 7 days" then supposedly rehab. My friend will sue but wants to get him home first and not take aggressive action while John is at their mercy. Please ask the Lord to protect John and restore his strength and his mind... he is now completely confused. As happens from anesthesia. He needs help finding his way back. You could never find a man with a more loving heart. We need him. Need the prayers of the faithful. Thank you frens
Prayers being sent. The Lord will provide a healing. Amen.
Heavenly Father, We thank you for Your loving care of John, and we ask for Your healing touch on his lungs and on his mind. We pray for strength and comforting for his loved ones while they wait during his healing journey. We ask that You restore him to good health, and allow him to serve you in all gratitude giving You all the glory, honor, praise. We ask these things in the name of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Will go and pray for John. 🙏🏻. What is intended for evil will be turned good.
Dear Lord, please look after John. Provide his loving family with guidance and strength to see him through to good health. We love You very much. Amen.
It might be better to make a separate post for a prayer request, anon.
Also, tell your friend not to sign anything the hospital may ask her to (unless it's discharge papers or something standard and easy-to-understand) until she has a legal person review it - especially if it has to do with liability. She can just tell them she's too upset to adequately review documents at this time.
Also, she should check to see what kind of pain reliever(s) they're giving him in the ICU. I had a loved one who they gave Dilaudid to that made them "completely confused" while in ICU and had them choose a different pain medication, made all the difference. The anesthesia can make one foggy until it clears out of the system as well.
Heavenly Father, we come to You today in prayer for HighCountryAZ's friend's husband, John, who has been through recent suffering and is in need of Your healing. Lord, please heal this man completely and make him whole again. Please protect this man from incompetent or malicious individuals as he continues along his path back towards good health. Give John strength in both body and mind and also bestow Your protection, grace and blessings on John's loved ones as they help him back to good health. We thank You, Lord, for Your love and mercy and for Your many blessings, in Jesus' loving name. 🙏✝️
Thank you ❤️
Great reply. Username checks out.
Sometime, we need a pause, here’s something to take you away for a few pleasant minutes: https://youtu.be/Hc-Jb4t5xQc
Thanks for this.
So today is March 22.... 32223 Skull & Bones backwards & forwards ....
Good catch! I am very hopeful and waiting expectantly...
Whole Diseased Temple
It’s going to be Biblical
NOTHING CAN STOP WHAT IS COMING
I just unfollowed Konstantin Kisin. I am really disappointed as how much a bitter self-hating Russian he’s revealing to be.
Yes, he still fight the woke, but he’s pro Ukraine hopelessly killing its own people for the sake of NATO. I tweeted him how disappointed I am but I don’t expect an answer…
He has to tow the line to stay in the limelight.
I purchased and read his book. Most of it was nice. Sometime great, but it also had a few cringe moments (mostly disclaimers, like the one about people making boob jokes which is okay, even when he would not make some, not to disturb his -probably nagging- wife). Then you remember that he’s a comedian and expect people not to feel insulted by simple jokes.
I couldn't figure out why after sweeping my daughter-in-laws bathroom floor WHY there was always grit from the kitty litter box on the floor AFTER having swept it. Then I went in later only to find my 4 year old grandson scooping the cat turds out and walking them over to the bathroom garbage can. Kids do the darndest things don't they?
Trying to be helpful, bless.
LOL. Sorry for how my mind works, but this reminds me of a story from the long-defunct (and sometimes hilarious but sometimes fairly wrenching, as a lot of the kids are this way from serious problem parents) "Tard Blog" - a blog by a special ed. teacher. So this one kid went totally missing and they were freaking out trying to find him - finally, they found him, in the bathroom, and worse, face down sprawled on the floor. He was fine. He explained he liked it "because the floor is cool."
That's funny. I only posted that because 'kids' are all I have to talk to from 7 to about 4 PM. That's why I can hardly wait to get home to have an adult to talk to. But kids are funny at times and do some of the strangest things. I think I'll post on General Chat anytime one of them do something really funny. At least I know I'll get a reply from someone on here. Thanks and God bless.
I'd encourage it. Kid stories are great. Kids have not "learned" (been indoctrinated) against their natural instincts toward curiosity, reason, and questioning. Like this story is great, kid decided he should help and just took the initiative up and did it, just didn't realize well you don't just pick up poop because poop
He had it in the scooper shovel, but there was litter still in the scoop causing him to scatter it across the bathroom floor. At least now I know who the culprit was as this has been going on for a while.
Ahhh on the scooper. "a while" LOL
4chan anon? kek. apologies.
Have you seen the pol-humor thread about "Haypil"?
No.... but now I have to.
I love this so much. Had forgotten all about Neil lmao!
Hmmm. I find it hard to read walls of text these days. Any idea when the movie is coming out?
I don't even know what to say! I'm crying from laughing
Nah, I never did the chans. The few times I've wandered in it's like ok I see the one post then there's a ton of junk and stuff and it's just like huh
I think I'm too much of a newbie for the chans. I only here them talked about on here. Only been around couple years! Lol as You know, or can tell! 🤣! Do they still exist?
Kek I hear ya. I stay away from 4chan, it's just too different for me. 8kun I'll lurk on. That really is entertaining. But the story there just reminded me of halfchan. Have a beautiful day fren!
That’s kinda cute: he felt like he had to help somehow.🥺💩
Now, he should tweet the catturds, not bin them.🤓
Also reminds me of Ninky the other day when her Mom stopped at the supermarket and brought home a car load of groceries. Ninky was outside with her oldest brother waiting for Mommy to get home. When suddenly the side door to the house opened and in walked Ninky holding and saying, "I got nana's." She loves her bananas. She was helping Mommy bring in the groceries.
Hahahaha. Leave it to Brayden. I told him 'thank you' for his help, but that from now on let Mommy or one of the bigger boys take care of it.

First arrest will verify action and confirm future direction. Am I allowed to say this?
Can't be! the letter F is already on the board (displaying), so what does the first word start with?? (literally)
Only kidding of course ;)
I think you won the car.
Let me guess. It would be a kid sized battery operated power car. Yippee! The kids will love it.
Hey, what are you gonna do? Budget constraints.
I believe I am falling in love with this GC entry.

Question of the Day:
If you could have one of the following, what would you rather have?
A viking ship
A giant pipe organ
A hot air balloon
A lavender field
A double decker bus
An amphibious vehicle
Your own rollercoaster
Ah, you don't have to answer that.
It is the giant pipe organ hands down.
J.S. Bach. Tocatta in D minor (written when he was 17 years old or so.)
Amphibious vehicle, because remember anons...a FLOOD is coming.
you read my mind fren!!
Amphibious vehicle, hands down.
Living in flooding areas, it would be particularly handy. Not to mention the sea and lake adventures.
Pipe organ would be pretty cool, but I'm kidding myself. I've had access to a bunch of musical instruments in my life and never bothered to learn them. 😅
Amphibious vehicle would be rad.
You left out "F-15"
