Since netable has brought to our attention the pending 5 Year (as measured from the first post in the forum) anniversary of Fishtown.US, I decided a Fishtown.US trivia thread would be in order...

I remember when I first

I remember when I first discovered this forum I was in outrage. I thought the neighborhood was secretly under siege, like that Roddy Piper movie "They Live". I was looking at this site while at work at a warehouse and I shouted to my cousin Sean, "You, dude! Where did all these people come from?!?!? I don't know ANY of these people!"

I used to fight with Brooke and UFO about the most trivial, stupid things. You'd swear I hated them. How times have changed.

Happy Anniversary, Dan!

BlueCollarBob, LOL anyone ever find out who he was? I always thought it was another member just trying to make things interesting and ruffling peoples feathers'

I particularly liked this Post of His
"Don't Try to Fix it if it isn't Broken"
Leave my neighborhood the way it is.
There is no need for the change, the
true Fishtowners are content. If you feel
the need for something different, move
to Olde City or Northern Liberties. There
is no need for it here.

C'mon, Lar. I was angry enough without having to create a fake online persona. I will admit though that Bob did work in the same warehouse as me. He is also a blood relative (although much younger and full of more piss and vinegar than me). Ah, the good old days.

PeeWee is doing just fine, by the way.
