Fair enough.

When I was a kid I made a detailed pen and paper database of WW2 air force units and devised my own RPG style board game based on dice rolls and rules of thumb. Then I wrote a story about it, I don't have the story anymore but I'll offer that as a qualification.

I use the clock system to point things out in real life.

When I was 8 I was featured in a newspaper article after correctly identifying a Nieuport in a local museum while within earshot of the curator.

I play WoFF with my fan blowing in my face.

I involuntarily attempt to change the PoV while watching flight sim videos on youtube by tilting my head while shouting tactical advice at the screen.

My pilots always have an evolving backstory, even the ones I create specifically to play with when I've partaken of a few beers because I want to protect my more serious pilots.

Hopefully my credentials meet your satisfaction. biggrin

Indeed, and given comments you'd made in another thread I had no doubt your credentials would be impeccable.

Those are my beers... she's bringing you lot yours next.

Welcome to the Club, Jimmy. I'm going to have to confess that I don't know who last had the cricket bat... it's not in its usual place...


Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

That's hilarious. When I'm at a merge in traffic, I find myself leaning as I slide in behind the car in front of me...give it just a little reverse rudder and start searching for the trigger.

Hehe, I've lined up a semi or two on the highway with a chip in the windscreen and caught myself muttering "dakka dakka dakka" too. Especially those ones that haul the big gas trailers.

You'll often hear snippets like "Stop following him around with your gunsight like a clown, put yourself ahead of him!", "Be more aggressive!", "SHOOT SHOOT NOW"! or "Don't throw your height away!" coming from my room when I find a Youtube channel with plenty of flight sim content.

Does screaming "CONACT!" at my neighbors shoveling their driveway when I start my car in the morning enough to qualify for the club?


I got fired as the door man at a sperm bank.
Apparently it's in poor taste to tell leaving customers "Thanks for coming."

Nope, first you must ask your significant other to sit behind you and man the Lewis every time you go for a car ride.
You have to have the urge to pull the steering wheel toward you when coming to a red light and to push the steering wheel away from you when you think your car is about to stall.
You must also give the skunk-eye to every Mercedes-Benz driver (regardless if the cross on the door is red or not).

.

AceMedic88, the mere act of asking to join our lot demonstrates your grip on reality is tenuous at best. Add to that your above cited example of barmy behavior and your fascination with WOFF and I'd say you're a definite candidate for the BOC. And don't be afraid to share a few more of the WOFF and WWI aviation related insanities you've manifested, you're among friends here and we won't judge. Run up your bar tab, beat you with the cricket bat, (which was found yesterday after breakfast in the pump house where Robert had been using it as a stir paddle for a batch of bathtub gin he'd been mixing), and have a fair share of laughs at your expense, yes - but we won't judge you. Just ask our newest member to the fold JimmyBlonde whom we initiated last night, though I wouldn't ask him just yet as he may still be sleeping it off.

Meanwhile, I need a round. I'm not haf as thrunk as you drink I am! Not on tee martoonies!

Well....hmm...it has been a while since folks have replied to this thread, but it's time to "fire it up" once again! explode

Seems some folks think I might have the qualifications to become, well, part of the barmy! Wait, is that proper grammatical usage? I think I just become.... barmy!...or wait, I must already be barmy to be in the club....

....so,OK, lets see if I can line up with at least four of the qualifications:

15. You visit the OFF forum at least three times a day when not physically prevented from doing so. Ha! More like 30! wink

17. Your spouse or partner can immediately tell by the look on your face that your virtual self has 'bought the farm'. Yes, definintely, and to the point where I am then advised to seek therapy and not bore her with such details (and instead talk about the Crawley family or something else [although I have convinced her to watch BBC Wings with me thumbsup])

21. You lobby with greater fervour for a new aeroplane type to be included in the next (W)OFF enhancement than you would for better saftey features in school buses. Ha! Our buses are more important than their buses anyway wink Edit: I just realized why this is actually true! The year is 1915...school buses were not around yet, and school bus safety features could have been designed by...the kin of men who flew WWI buses! rofl. ....at least to myself...is that barmy? wink

18. You have a replica WWI pilots uniform in your 'den'. Well, not quite, but I did recently purchase a 1915 one shilling piece from ebay just to feel what it was like, and also knowing my current pilot (George Lyons) gets seven of those a day...cold comfort if he dies!

19. You can't remember the last book you bought that wasn't connected with WWI aviation ....actually, almost true! I had to think about it, but since April I have acquired five books, one magazine, and borrowed a few more via interlibrary loan (a wonderful thing in the USA) all about WWI aviation. Fortunately, the library director at my local library is also a WWI buff, and I've been able to talk to him on occasion about stuff, including WOFF of course.

Requesting permission to embark! salute

Regards,

Jeff

I'll endorse your claim.

Anyone who photoshops themselves into WW1 pictures is going above and beyond the base requirements imo.

How right you are Ace_Pilto!

I'll second Jeff's induction into the BWOC. I think your fantastic additions to our stories around here are more than meritorious for membership. Now if only Lou was here he'd be the first to tell you...

New lad buys the first round!

I'll take a nice stout Guinness if you have it Jeff!

cheers
