I, literally, just stumbled onto this website while looking for information about internet hoaxes and I have to say I’m loving it (I like internet forums, anyway - they’re fun!).  My name is Tony Trout and I’m 36 - will be thirty seven in May.  Was born three months premature and also born with Cerebral Palsy/Hydrocephalus (the latter is more commonly known as “water on the brain”) and the doctors told my parents that I would never live and even if there was the slight chance that I did, I wouldn’t know anyone or be able to do anything.  Well, thirty-six years later, God has proven them wrong!  I can play several different musical instruments and I am a singer as well.  I’m a HUGE fan of Elvis Presley - there will never be another singer/entertainer like him in our lifetime! 

I’m glad to be here and I thank you for letting me join!!

Take Care/God Bless,
Tony Trout


P.S.  Is there any way for me to use the attached picture as an avatar?

Welcome, Tony. And the link Peter provided is actually not the current way to upload avatars. At the top of any forum page click the “Your Control Panel” link, then the “Edit Avatar” link. It should be self-explanatory from there.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Hi Tony!  And may I also say that like a lot of folks who aren’t supposed to survive, or be credible, or be anything more than a vegetable, you are not alone in that diagnosis!  Welcome to foolishness here!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
