A Very Special CB World Wide Post Card (in Off-topic)

Max May 27 2005 5:12 PM EDT

I have been thinking about making a world wide CB Post Card since last year. I think I originally mentioned it to Wldflr/Sefton. Here is my crazy idea:

I mail, in an envelope, a Post Card from California with my game signature and location on it to someone I know on CB with whom I trust, like Todd or Saint. (Max, not Eric Martin, as I wouldn't want my sig floating around) In turn, they sign it and mail it in a new envelope with the cut off stamp I used and then mail that to someone they trust.

1. I sign it and put it in an envelope
2. They receive it and cut off my stamp from the envelope, sign the card, put the card and stamp into another envelope.
3. They mail it to a friend on CB with whom they trust. Post the mail date, game name of player mailing the letter, and game name of recipient being mailed to.
4. If you receive the postcare and it is too full for you to sign, purchase one from your area, sign it and add it to the envelope.
5. Repeat.

Why, you may ask? I have no clue. It just seems fun to watch. If there is an interest I will more than likely mail it to Todd to start it off. Sound good?

thats a pretty cool idea, i think. : )

LumpBot May 27 2005 5:28 PM EDT

I would be willing to do it.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 27 2005 5:32 PM EDT

Ab fab idea, Max! (Is this just a philately trick? Are you a closet philatelist?)

Let us all just remember not to send to Vicious, who has already
proven most likely to ruin our fun. ;-)

Special J May 27 2005 5:35 PM EDT

Sign your game name correct?

Not the real signature, I'm with you about not letting that one float about all willy nilly.

AdminG Beee May 27 2005 5:41 PM EDT

If I had a name like willy nilly I wouldn't either. willy nilly is silly... heh

Nixon Jibfest May 27 2005 5:54 PM EDT

FYI, i don't open envelopes covered in white powder.

[YG]Wildthing May 27 2005 6:29 PM EDT

Great Idea. It would be cool to see how far, and where the postcard has been.

wldflr May 27 2005 6:33 PM EDT

Count Sefton and I in! Sounds fun:)

xDanELx May 27 2005 6:39 PM EDT

I'm in.

deifeln May 27 2005 6:40 PM EDT

I'm game as long as Monty doesn't get involved.


Special J May 27 2005 6:54 PM EDT

emmett will try to hock it to pay off his loans ;)

BrandonLP May 27 2005 7:17 PM EDT

/me laughs at the Monty stipulation.

Perhaps explaining why would be a good idea. ;)

[Banned]Monty May 27 2005 7:21 PM EDT

hey :( that is very hurtful!

I'm in :P as is Tonya :)

{CB1}Lukeyman May 27 2005 7:47 PM EDT

I'd love to join in... but if my parents saw a postcard coming from willy nilly, they'd be really really super mad :(

RAMPAGE May 27 2005 9:03 PM EDT

Sounds like fun. Count be in.

Thraklight Resonance May 27 2005 9:45 PM EDT

I knew a Willy Nilly, a silly hillbilly.

Max May 27 2005 9:48 PM EDT

Cool. :) Before you mail the card make sure you get the persons real name for the address as to not scare parents.

We are going to get this rolling starting from Chino Hills, California 91709. It will be mailed to Todd who lives in Canada.

Hopefully, we will be able to calculate the amount of miles our letter has traveled and that I will be able to update a GIF map of the world that will be posted in this thread.

spydah May 27 2005 9:50 PM EDT

um, you don't think that your sig is already everywhere from CCs, taxes, loans, etc.etc.?

silly willy indeed...


Frod May 27 2005 10:13 PM EDT

Nice... I'm game.

Gender Bender May 28 2005 1:22 AM EDT

Me too me too!

Undertow May 28 2005 2:40 AM EDT

I'm in. I could mail it to Gooey....... who could mail it back.......

Hey! Actually I do know DSLfighter! He lives in the same town as my grandfather... hasn't been on much lately though.

Vagabond May 28 2005 2:41 AM EDT

Sure, count me in.

InebriatedArsonist May 28 2005 3:33 AM EDT

Seems interesting to me.

Xanthochroid May 28 2005 4:07 AM EDT

I want in on this as well. I don't know any "real" CBers other than you nerds, so I'll have to have a trustworthy person designated to me. Kaloo-kalay!

IndependenZ May 28 2005 5:37 AM EDT

Hehe, cool idea! I like it! It might take a while for the card to get to certain places though. Count me in too!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 28 2005 7:17 AM EDT

I'm Game!

{CB1}Lukeyman May 28 2005 7:20 AM EDT

I live in Canada also :D I'll join in! Parents are cool now I think!

Todd May 28 2005 7:22 AM EDT

I'm in.

I'll let you know, I am mailing it to Spydah when I get it.

Max, check your CM for my address (you may alrady have it)
spydah, I will need yours.

Will [Retired] May 28 2005 7:24 AM EDT

I'll do it, chuck it over't lantic to meee! :P

AdminShade May 28 2005 8:55 AM EDT

Shade is in

AdminShade May 28 2005 8:56 AM EDT

just a possible thing: how about if you need to send it to europe instead of america, airmail or normal?

Max May 28 2005 11:09 AM EDT

Shade, overnight it.


Seriously, as long as it will get to the destination in a reasonable amount of time, great. I expect our letter will be traveling for some time before returning home.

RIPsalt3d May 28 2005 1:40 PM EDT

I'm up for this.

Fuhgawz May 28 2005 5:09 PM EDT

Count me in

Aco May 28 2005 5:26 PM EDT

count me in. Shade, you'll send it to me, k?

Warchild May 28 2005 11:47 PM EDT

I'm in. Sounds like an interesting idea.

gooey muppet May 29 2005 12:35 AM EDT

yeah tow could mail it to me and i could persuade iaminyourhead to make a cb2 account so i could mail it to him.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] May 29 2005 1:17 AM EDT

Well, you couldn't have a CB postcard without me.. hehehe :) I'll join too.

BooDiggens May 29 2005 2:25 AM EDT

You can get 2 for one at this address. GnuUzir and I are roommates.

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] May 29 2005 5:15 AM EDT

if everyone kept cutting off the stamp it wouldn't make much of a postcard by the time everyone got it. Otherwise send me a corner, I will sign it and remail it to TUW. :)

AdminShade May 29 2005 10:12 AM EDT

Aco, or to bartjan ;)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 29 2005 10:35 AM EDT

Read the directions carefully. You will receive the card in an envelope. Cut the stamp off of that envelope. Sign the card with your CB username. Put the card, the canceled stamp, and all the other canceled stamps, in a new envelope. Address and add postage to your new envelope. Mail.

Using a new envelope each time precludes anyone sending CraniumBasher all of our addresses. You'll only receive the return address of someone who trusted you, and you will only send your return address to someone you trust.

The Lone Forger May 29 2005 10:40 AM EDT

Count me in if anyone wants to send it to me Chatmail me for my address

{CB1}Lukeyman May 29 2005 12:16 PM EDT

This sounds like an awesome Idea! I can't wait till it gets started
