    I'm lost. But I'm not all that bright to begin with.

    HBG2 that writing reminds me of the cirth runes created by J.R.R. Tolkein, which are based on old anglo-saxon and norse runes. still can't read it but thats what they remind me of.

    Is it "999 Happy Haunts", "Hatbox Ghost", "Dead Men Tell No Tales"... or the obscure: "zizzibalooba", "zippidedoodaa", "Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious", "hobo camp"?

    Because of all the 'geez' bolding I'm guessing it has something to do with g's.
    That still does not help me at all though. But I'm kind of clueless as it is so yeah.

    The thing that's confusting me most though is the specific tie to HM that this has. I don't doubt you HBG, I really don't, but I'm just trying to figue it out.

    It has no tie to the HM in itself. It's just my own use of an unusual language that I traffic in, in order to refer to the HM. It's just a dumb little game.

    As for identifying the language, GEEZ, you people, I'm amazed that no one has figured it out yet. I mean, GEEZ, a little googling and you're staring right at it.

    Uh, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ge'ez_language?

    Must you bamboozle us with ancient South Semitic languages, HBG2? Geez.

    Ding Ding Ding

    Just throwin' a little ancient Ethiopic into the mix. I mean, someone has to do it, right? BTW, if you've never eaten Ethiopian cuisine, it's UNIQUE and it's GOOD.

    Anyway, show this to a native Ethiopian and ask them to read it, and they'll scratch their heads because it makes no sense at all, but it'll sound like "Well KAHM, fooleesh morTAW lezz."



    This one will make better sense...to them, not to you. It'll sound something like "Saw LAWM lecka moo, abb DAWN zuh yuh MA wettoo," which is literally "Peace to you, foolish ones who die," pretty much how you would say it in ancient Ethiopic, aka Ge'ez (guh ezz).



    So if your HM friends don't already think you're weird enough, try "Saw LAWM lecka moo, abb DAWN zuh yuh MA wettoo" on them. They'll think you're putting a hex on them or something, until you explain, "What's your problem? Never heard 'Welcome, foolish mortals' in ancient Ethiopic before?"

    And thus endeth the oddest diversion in either of The Threads.

    This is a story that many of us have heard before in one form or another, either in print or from one of the interviews with Rolly Crump on Extinct Attractions DVDs, but this version, from a speech Rolly gave October 7, 2000, has a few extra details that I didn't know. This is the HM excerpt, but the whole speech is worth reading, here: http://www.startedbyamouse.com/archi...Speech01.shtml

    Yale Gracey and I were asked to design all of the illusions for the Haunted Mansion and so we had this big, big room and we blacked out all of the windows. This was in the animation department. And we had skulls and skeletons and we had stuff all around the room ... gory heads. And one of the things that we had was a great big monster that we painted with all kinds of things on it and everything and a weird head. And we had a string attached to its head and when Walt would come in we'd let him ... we were just playing around with stuff. We didn't know what we were going to use it ... we'd take this gun and shoot the monster and the monster would blow up, the lid would come off and there was some black stuff underneath and the head would come off and swing around the room. My wife made a China silk ghost that you'd put over a small caged fan and when you turned it on, the ghost would fill up and start shaking and everything. And so we had all of this stuff.

    Well, one day what happened was we get a call from the personnel department and they said, "The janitors have requested that you leave a light on." So Yale and I said, "Oh, all right, we'll leave a light on." And so what we did was we rigged the room. Right in the middle of the room we had an infrared beam and when you first came in the lights were kinda low but they were on. But when you broke the beam, the black lights came on, the real lights went off, the monster blew up and up comes the ghost. So we came to work the next day and the ghost was going all night long and the head was hanging in the center of the room and right in the middle of the floor was a broom. And we get a call from the personnel department, "They are NEVER coming back."
