BHP Forum No More
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.

Marsha: Are you INSANE?

Medium close-up on Marsha, looking like a deer caught in the headlights.
Woman (OP): My areas of emphasis were nutrition and radiation hormesis.
Woman (OP): What are your medical credentials?
Cut to the second balcony, the Old Hobo is leaning over the front railing, shouting toward the stage.
Old Hobo: And what damned business is it of yours what I put in my mouth?
Old Hobo: I don't tell you where to put your mouth, do I?
A bit closer shot of the Old Hobo, now wagging his tongue lasciviously. The people around him are laughing.
