I apologize in advance for the potential long-windedness of what I'm about to post, but bear with me; I rarely write a novel here and I'll do my best to keep it short. I read several reviews of MW and have seen multiple people mention the "cliques" in the lounge. I want to start by saying that just like in real life, there will always be cliques if you get a bunch of people in one area. We naturally gravitate to similar personalities and to those most like ourselves; anyone who says they don't is outright lying. I'm a sarcastic person and I tend to associate with likeminded people; that's why I've become friends with people like Zooter or Rum or even Dave (even though I hate him). I'm guilty of being a little cranky or "feisty" here, but its the internet and anyone who has met me can attest to the fact that I'm generally pretty nice to everyone. Just because I made fun of your post doesn't mean I hate you or you should take it personally; it just means I thought your post stunk. If someone being mean to you on MW is the worst thing to happen to you today, you're lucky. The world is a scary place and people aren't always nice; rest assured that nearly everyone I've met here has been welcoming and friendly despite whatever "clique" they fall into or their personality on the lounge may suggest. I've been physically threatened over jokes I've made here, and the first thing I could think to do was laugh at the idea of some dumb joke I made inspiring such ridiculous behavior. I know I got off on a tangent, but long story short, cliques exist. It's silly to think they don't. Either way, it's all harmless fun (though perhaps at your expense). Don't take it personally. Keep an open mind and have a sense of humor, otherwise you'll just be trash like Marieezy (if any of you still thought that was real, it wasn't. Marieezy's absolutely wonderful and you should all give her a hug if you get the chance). K, you guys can have your soapbox back.

Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

To watch a short biography of Walts life:
Walt and Lillian Disney with unnamed friend, London, 1935.
Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
