How does one get to become an “Astmaster”?

Those of us that survive the ritual aren’t allowed to talk about it, ever.

i still have nightmares…

be afraid, be VERY afraid…

before you can be an “Astmaster” you must be known as an “Asthole” :wink:

here’s what i did … get a small hernia and see your GP about getting it fixed. then get prodded lots by a consultant who eventually repairs it. go into hospital for 4 hours, come out with black, very swollen gonads and have 4 weeks off work (even though you’re self-employed) and sit on the forums all day 'cos you have nothing else to do.

or, contribute over 500 posts. wish i knew that first :smiley:
