    Shot of empty room. Camera rotates around the room, revealing it is empty. A telephone in the middle of the room starts ringing. The camera continues to pan, and suddenly, turnstep (with sunglasses of course) is there! :)

      Make sure the windows are not covered with bricks *smile*
      God, I love that movie! *smile*

    The way I'd like to do it:
    • Check the door, but its locked
    • Melt into a brownish-red goo
    • Slide under the door
    • Solidify at the other side
    BBQ takes a bow as the crowd goes wild.

      On that same vein, how about the Mummy's sand-through-the-lock trick? hhhhhhhmmmmm

    I was just told by a friend who is a firefighter that they can no longer place poles in newly constructed firehouses. The insurance companies say they are too dangerous. ggeeeesss
    Let's all slide down in protest!

      I wonder if running down the stairs is safer.

    So far, the bulldozer is winning hands down.
    What's that say about general maturity and testosterone levels at the Monastery? (grin)

    Invoke no clipping mode.
    Go where I wish, ignoring all physical blockades.
    Disable no clipping mode.

      MY GOD! ONE OF THE FEW "TFERS" STILL OUT THERE!!!! I thought us TFC players had killed you all?!?! I guess we missed one...lol TF is a great game though....it's classic. Are you going to be playing TF2 when it comes out? I know I know, it'll be the half-life engine and not the quake like originally planned, but it's still gonna be the best FPS ever :) It'll have strategy in an FPS....What more can you ask for...
        What more can you ask for? Linux support!

        No Linux, no Russ...

    Through the window, 1.2 seconds after my flashbang.

    I just love Counterstrike...
      I prefer an HE first to injure and disorient then flash bang.
      Enter after I here the "poof" shoot as many as my clip allows
      with my m4, then finish off the rest with my knife.

    A Smith&Wesson 6 shooter in one hand, a 12guage sawed-off in the other, blood on my shirt, a nice cut across my cheek, a flaming cigar, and the words "Who wants a piece?" ("ya dirty mofos" optional)

    Hmmm... Is it just me, or is there a striking (yet dissonant) correlation between the number of Monks who vote that they prefer to slip into a room unnoticed, and the number of Monks whose reply includes large-bore firearms or heavy machinery?   (big grin)

      *laughing* You make a good observation!! I love irony as well.
      At the time I posted it, there were only 39 out of 112 that wanted to slip in unnoticed. I guess that leaves a lot of people that want to make an entrance! *smiling wide*

      Roy Alan

      That's because this is really a psychology experiment.
      The people who want to slip in are either:
      a) antisocial/shy/introverted
      b) involved in covert activity

      Neither of these leads to much discourse.

    hmmm... i'm surprised no one's suggested 'down the chimney'.

    "Ho Ho Ho!"

    then again... no one here is santa claus.

    The dagger slips between your ribs as you turn, you didn't even notice the assassin enter the crowded room. You stare at him as he walks out, still unnoticed.

    --=Lolindrath=--
      Staring at someone and still not noticing her/him. That's great obfuscation.

    Wave my best pen circularly, "Xyzzy music building!" and appear -- (with Perl code transporter effect of course).
