Aye, welcome first poster. It's a bit more fun if you just add to the existing multi-page General Content Twabble thread. Not breaking any rules by starting a new one, but if you post over there your twabble won't be so lonely.

Nice first post, Alex.
Welcome to Cephalopod Central.
I'm imagining a cartoon with a rope-line of particles, and one of those signs that says you need to be this minimum height to ride.

Welcome back, my good sir. And just in time. We need you to hold a baptismal service for Clowns and Bunnies and The Dribblecast.

Oh yes, great twabble too.

So, I guess you're going for 2.) this time?

Good one!

"Dizzy -- too many laps," the God Particle groaned, staggering from the collider. He barfed and a new universe was born.

Applause for both of these. +50 points for topical nature of them. +25 points to ASID for the continuation.

Great one, ASiD! Thank you for continuing the twabble & thank god the particle didn't collide with anything. :-D

and another one: "Take it down!", he said disappointedly. Who'd have thought that he'd find the darned particle in the first collision?

I like the concept here, but if there was some way to tweak it so you goes "he said disappointed" it would be much better.

If I may be so bold as to suggest:

"Take it down!", he said disappointed. Who'd have thought that they'd find the darned particle in the first collision?

I tried to show him what's what, but instead I accidentally showed him what-WHAT! Sufficed to say, much dancing ensued.
