    How to Summon CQ-Users

    After being part of the CosmoQuest community for a while, one will inevitably become familiar with our forum’s regular personalities and their interests, pet peeves, and areas of expertise. After 11 years on this site, I think I’ve figured out exactly the correct phrases to shout in order to summon certain users if one finds oneself desperately in need of their assistance.

    For example:

    To summon Gillianren: “So, what did you think of that MOVIE about the RENAISSANCE FAIRE PERFORMERS who had BAD GRAMMAR?”

    To summon George: “What COLORS of paint should I buy for this mural of ASTRONOMICAL OBJECTS?”

    To summon BigDon: “Does anyone know how to MOVE FURNITURE onto an AIRCRAFT CARRIER with a minimum of RIDICULOUS HIJINX?”

    To summon Grant Hutchison: “Which HISTORICAL EXPLORER should I WITTILY CRITICIZE while HIKING IN SCOTLAND?”

    To summon Gemini: “Whatever shall I do with these dozens of CARDSTOCK MODELS of ROCKETS AND JET PLANES?”

    What phrases would you announce conspicuously loudly to attract the immediate attention of other users?

    There are currently 720 users online. 26 members and 694 guests
    26 + 694 = 720

    What do you mean "that's not what I mean by summing CQ users"?

    You forgot the \sum_{n = 0}^\infty.

    Wait, why didn't that work? Dang.
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    I can reliably summon Mods by losing my temper. But historically that has not worked out well for me.

    Hello Kai...
    Do I talk about drama or drama critics a lot? I wasn’t aware I did.
