Goody ! I have a new and useful word for my collection: Vometorium.....   I think that the  implication is devilishly appropriate for the topic at hand.

Tank gets a silver star for his invention.  :notes:

I know this is off topic but I have a hard time picturing your accent Gene, if you catch my meaning. Of the folks here who I haven't heard speak I have a fairly well set "voice" that I read their posts in. Even some who I have heard speak will forever be read in their original voice. Bruce, for example, will always sound like an accent neutral woman, from before I knew he wasn't a she.

But you... I can't picture what you sound like no matter how hard I might try. It's your word choices that do it I think. In one post you take on a professorial air and in another my mental eight track spews sounds of Stuey from Family Guy. It's so frickin' frustrating and I don't know why.

No, invention and it ain't what it sounds like but, WTF, it sounds like it should be!

Spoiler: show
vomitorium
noun
1.
each of a series of entrance or exit passages in an ancient Roman amphitheatre or theatre.
2.
a place in which, according to popular misconception, the ancient Romans are supposed to have vomited during feasts to make room for more food.

That second definition sounds metaphorically appropriate.
But, uh...well there it is.

:lol: That's funny because I read everyone's posts with my own mind's voice (and don't think anything of it) except for Bruce's which is in a heavy Texan accent. I started reading his posts that way after watching his Wall video.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

JJ those remarks have the potential for opening up a whole new subject for conversational exchange. That could be stimulating and include replies from several others of us. 

I suspect that the differences between our ages has some bearing on the possible interpretations of our individual voices.

In my case I believe that I have a slight, minimally present, southern accent. The key and timbre of my voice is down the middle, not imposing but at appropriate occasions somewhat bombastic. I have a moderate to subdued temper and am not inclined to become boisterous over smaller slights. I usually Choose to take the philosophic position that there are a lot of stupid people who have not sufficiently developed the discipline to behave rationally when things go against their grain.

Then there is the alcohol. I am not a habitual boozer but I do enjoy my intermittent excursions into the bachanalian world. That may very well affect the tone and sensibility of my posts. Thus the possible family guy persona.

In any case I hold almost all of the HAF regulars in high esteem. We do have some bright, fun, and thoughtful people here.  I have not previously tried to channel any of their voices but.....now I might give it some thought..... Recusant would have the voice of a supreme court judge......I would think of Silver as an erudite but modest contralto, OG is a politely pedantic voice with a well developed sense of humor, Asmo is super bright dude who is not at all as evil as he pretends, Books is a darling school teacher type that we can adore, PC is a bit of a firebrand but we like her take on things sometimes, .....and....fill in the blanks to suit ones own perceptions. 

JJ if you and I lived closer we could almost surely be friends because we are both gear heads who know how to fix things. Voices be damned.   We could include Gloucester and a couple of others in our little band of DIY builder type guys.  ,,,,,,,,

There I have exposed myself........How 'bout some of you others tell us how you think you relate to HAFers and to general society in terms of voice and personality quirks. 

in terms of full disclosure, it is past 9 PM and there have been two rum toddies preceding this capricious post.

Peace!

Someone here told me that I probably sounded, looked and acted like Charo.  :picard facepalm:

Of course. Who else would say something so preposterous!? :snooty:
I have no accent when I speak Padre Bruno, para nada, ninguno.  :nu-uh:
