I had a dream that I asked everyone to post on their Facebook, Twitter, MSN, BBM Yahoo etc.. status that I would win the lottery tomorrow and to get their friends to pass it on so thousands of people would change their status and it worked. I won.

So today I'm asking everyone on here and everywhere else I browse to change their status to

"Gary Marven will win the lotto on March 5 2011, pass it on."

Who knows crazier things have happened.

I thank all in advance that do this.

It's just that people (like me) who see stupid stuff like that on their social sites usually drop them, haha.

I wish phpBB had a feature to let users choose topics to ignore when checking View posts since last visit. For me, that'd be almost the same as an unsubscribe, and I'd bet a lot of people would have unsubscribed from the ZapFC topic already. Or is this in phpBB 3?

Well people (like me) appreciate the individual thoughts of everyone and see the positive side to things.
I had a weird dream, I woke up and actually remembered it so why not eh. It's just one of the many benefits to social media.
You have your opinions and convictions, it paves your way in life and shapes who you are. If you object to it fair enough.

Let's assume this "works". And you win the lottery.

The people who are supposed to give out the money will find all these predictions and find it very suspicious, perhaps assuming you somehow rigged it.

Ok lately i've been seeing alot of offtopic stuff in "general stuff". Can we make a rule that it at least has to be SOMEWHAT related to technical things? (There's plenty of "social" forums around for this kidna stuff)

I had to do a double take to make sure that said "Jeroen" and not "Jargon". I seem to remember having encountered another user who continued to post completely unrelated things in General Stuff while ignoring warnings that "NESdev is not your blog." There's already a sticky warning at the top along the lines "NESdev is not Gen[M]ay". On the other hand, in a lot of cases, explanation as to how a particular topic relates to NES development might take more room than the topic itself. (See perhaps the worst case example of how "Balloon Fever", my remix of a song from Balloon Fight, came to be.)

If your dream was really a prediction of the future, then it shouldn't matter if we do this or not; you ask everyone to change their status, which causes enough people to change their status, which means you win.

- Any "special" reason to keep this topic open?

This is the part where I try to swing it back to off-topic, not off-off-topic.

Other than that video game ideas often come from dreams, no. But this could easily be a plot point in an RPG that takes place in a setting whose magic runs on the principle of clap your hands if you believe. Discworld is one of those settings.

This is the general forum.. it's always open for debate how "general" it is, but IMHO it's intended for anything and everything. It seems to be peer pressure that keeps it to gaming/tech-related stuff.
