This morning, I started reading "The Day the World Came to Town", which I got from my local library after Dan recommended it in this post: https://www.dansdeals.com/more/dans-commentary/share-your-story/where-were-you-15-years-ago/

It got me thinking about how many such experiences I've been introduced to on these forums, or on DDMS. Settlers of Catan, Shallots, and Dad is Fat are just a few that come to my mind.

What were you introduced to on this site?

I always wanted to go to Cuba. Never had the proper information on how to make that trip happen until I read a few trip reports here. Especially @Something Fishy 's trip report.
I'm not who you think I am.

Lots of things, but this was cool.


I first heard of Shmueli in a DDF thread asking for recommendations for a wedding singer:

my brother is friggin AWESOME

Shmueli Ungar

Iím snarky by nature, so I scoffed at the comment, thinking, ďDonít we all think our brothers are awesome singers. Maybe heís good enough to sing at your wedding.Ē (Full disclosure: My brother, who has made an appearance on this forum, is an awesome singer. No, he didnít sing at my wedding. No, he isnít putting out an album. No, he isnít on YouTube.)

Anyway, I clicked on the video, and the dude can sing!

Unfortunately all of them - with a magic marker! :'(
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.
