    Nope but nice try.... It came as a way to slyly be vulgar.... His original name was Takdakak or something like that... when you pronounce it, it says "Take the cock." I think he got his peter slapped for that so he changed it to Tak. When he retired IRL, he changed it to Godfather.

    As to your side note... Are you SURE that is what it says? From what I read, it was just going to prevent them from developing a NEW one without getting buy-in from all five branches.

    My life is complete. I can now see Flaps and Tak sharing the love again.

    We can only hope that the both of them can be a little bit more receptive to each other.

    This forum is so confounding. Just a few weeks ago the mods were insisting that you would never be heard from ever again so help me <insert your preferred mythical being here>.

    And yet, here you are.

    Or are the mods just toying with us 'cause they can?

    Anyway, if it's really you, good to see you back.

    It is really him. They reduced the sentences. It think they all remained measured in months but the FA/mods realized that for trite stuff, a perma-ban might do more harm than good.

    Some are a bit out there...like Maximum Overdrive, Tommyknockers and the one about
    the growing mansion. Some of his best, including based off his short stories are
    The Shining, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and The Stand.
    Tak,

    I am glad that you are back. You have a wealth of information. On a side note, you should look at Joe Hill's books (Stephen King's Son). The apple does not fall far from the tree.

    Dean Koontz has some good King-like novels too. Phantoms is one of the best books I have ever read, then it was made into a movie around 1996 or so which was terrible.
