• Beware The Ides of March!

    Yes, this is it. The day Tower of Babble is officially open to the public.

    What the heck is this??? Tower of Babble is a discussion forum to talk about...well, anything. Invite your friends! Invite your enemies! Just tell everyone you know because playing with others is more fun than playing with yourself. Please Like and Share us on Facebook!

    Thank you to all our friends who helped us launch some topics and test out the software and themes. And a special shout out to Nertz, who designed our logo.

Announcement! Welcome to the soft opening of Tower Of Babble!

Frigg!

ToyBoxOrphan and I got tired of being unable to have a decent talk on social media, and we know some of our online friends feel the same way, so we started us a discussion forum. :)

You all know us from elsewhere, so we trust you to come on and start the party right and get some threads going. Thanks so much for joining us!

There is no particular focus for this forum. We intend to let users define it by the topics they like to post about.

All threads require a prefix. The reason for that is we'll know when a subject is popular and needs it's own forum.

If you have any questions or suggestions, we have a forum for that, or if you want for now you can reply on this message.

Oh, and don't be alarmed if the appearance changes a bit here and there. ToyBoxOrphan and I are still working on a few bells and whistles.

Isn't Whistling Dixie the name you suggested for my opinion piece? I wish I understood it, but I'm still too northern to understand such southernisms. lol.

It's not the same, and you knows it!
It's really not the same! I was born in the south and raised by midwest parents too. I confuse people by saying "ya'll," but also saying "pop" and no matter where I live, people think I've got a strange accent.

Your accent sounds typical of where I grew up, so it never sounds strange to me.

Y'all is a very useful word no matter where you're from. It's soda, not pop. Although here in California we tend to call everyone and everything "dude".

I feel like I've had this conversation on the Facepalm, about how really that's stopped being regional, and pretty much everyone refers to pretty much everything as "dude." Like ladies and bad drivers and broken faucets... Anyone else remember that?

This comes up a lot. People from California don't seem to realize that the rest of us have been using dude to refer to men, women, ideas, inanimate objects, etc. for a long time now. I sort of kind of had the idea it was a California thing, but everyone I grew up with in GA used it this way.
