Shoutbox

Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
The-Station-Pilot: I doubt it, TFC would have sent Douglas back if he thought it was on purpose Dec 3, 2021 11:52:47 GMT
Mobiyuz: The general story with Donald and Douglas' screwups is that they're trying so hard they miss details and cause trouble. Dec 3, 2021 11:56:26 GMT
OJ: About Christmas shows. Anyone remember this from the 80's? It's got to be one of the most obsecure cartoons ever. There is limited info on the internet about it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=nX_vJCAWQTk Dec 3, 2021 12:55:26 GMT
OJ: I actually have vague memories of it from when I was a kid and I've redisovered it recently. There were follow ups to it. Dec 3, 2021 12:56:03 GMT
Andrej: But their plan was for each to be as good as the other. Since they were followed around by constant misadventure, it seems to me not impossible to conceive that the twins resolved for each to screw up if the other did to keep it in balance. Dec 3, 2021 13:42:36 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: @andrej You're forgetting that Donald had backed into the signal box to balance out the bad marks on Douglas that the van's delays had inflicted. Dec 4, 2021 1:28:38 GMT
Ryan: Happy 19th Anniversary to the forums - the original boards were opened on this day in 2002! Dec 4, 2021 11:40:58 GMT
The Thomas Cynic: Happy Birthday SiF, and thanks to the staff team for keeping it running all these years. Even as a fairly new member in the grand scheme of things, SiF is really an archive of opinions/views on Thomas from across the years, and that's one of many appeals. Dec 4, 2021 12:29:24 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Happy Birthday SIF, here’s to another 19 years!!! Dec 4, 2021 14:11:30 GMT
Inkwright: Happy birthday SiF! Thanks to everyone for making it a wonderful community! Dec 4, 2021 14:43:06 GMT
Nicholas: Happy 19th Anniversary to SiF - and a cheer to its members that keep it a hub for the community and a home for good discussion, constructive debate and great content. :)) Dry rails and smooth running, folks! :) Dec 4, 2021 17:46:29 GMT *
stuart7: Indeed. Happy 19th Anniversary to SiF. I am very proud to have been part of this for 18 years. Long may it flourish! Dec 4, 2021 22:48:56 GMT
alexander876: 19 years of SIF,, this is awesome!!! Dec 4, 2021 23:31:43 GMT
Madness: Happy Birthday SiF :) . Dec 5, 2021 0:05:53 GMT
Mobiyuz: And here's to 19 more and beyond. Dec 5, 2021 8:26:57 GMT
Inkwright: You've all probably seen it, but if you haven't, watch the new Spider-Verse sequel trailer. Trust me, I've never been more hyped for a movie since the first still is my favorite movie ever made. Dec 5, 2021 14:30:55 GMT *
Madness: Today is Shaun Prendergast's Birthday. I have made him a special voice tryout video for his birthday. It will premiere in less than 45 minutes from now :) . www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcDBZ0WgDCY Dec 5, 2021 17:17:51 GMT *
OJ: I've seen the new Spider-verse trailer too. I'm actually hoping the 90's Spider-man version is in this move. I've got my ticked booked for No way Home really looking forward to that. Dec 5, 2021 23:04:18 GMT
OJ: I still beleive Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be making appearences in this movie which will make it epic. Quite excited for the future of MCU. Dec 5, 2021 23:04:59 GMT
Mobiyuz: Tobey Maguire was the best Spiderman and no one will convince me otherwise. Dec 6, 2021 1:31:59 GMT
