When I first signed up, Bahmaut thought the Simpsons was still funny :P

Also does anybody else think "The Problems of the Future, Today" should be reinstated as the site motto? "Everything, By Everyone" just sounds kinda lame to me.

I liked that motto, but Everything, by Everyone kinda grew on me. Especially when Blockhead came up with a saying "Newgrounds! Everyone, by everything, or something."

Agreed. A good example of that being good old fashioned lusty barfly. Goddamn that game was fun. Haha. No one gives it any props nowadays though. :(

Ah, the good ol day of having to 'Right click and Play' and having to guess of when the movie was fully loaded since the concept of a preloader was unheard of or rarely used.

I remember when poxpower was spelled ~poxpower~ and he changed his account name, so someone took the name and tried to sell it back to him, or something.

That was funny and somehow karmic.

I remember when someone stole KNOX's name after he changed his to KINGOFTHEPORTAL because he'd just won it for 2nd or 3rd time running or something.

Poxpower was spelled about 80 different ways. That dude changed his name like every other day it seemed like. We use to lol about it in the ol' club a club club.

Maybe when I hit level 44.

About a year ago I told myself that if there was any level to stop at, it would be 44.

Just the old stuff, dammit! I was iffy with the newer crap even then. Also, old Simpsons is still awesome but I later found Futurama to be far superior.

BTW, do you remember what happens when someone fails to spell my name properly? :P

Back on topic, I hope to retire in the golden levels but that's almost 3-4 years away. I'll probably would just settle for the katana and wakizashi level; 44 i think it is.

Bah. I'll probably only retire with a crowbar at best. Haha. Odds are I'll probably wind up with over 10k posts though. Depending on whether or not I decide to keep sticking with somethingawful. Those forums are so much more mature that it's retarded.

Cool, you're not too far away from that now :)

Retirement? I think my retirement will be when I get put in a box. I shall be buried with my laptop, with a power connection and internet access, in case I'm not really dead, or I come back as a zombie, so that I may continue to whore my stats!

Come to think of it, I'm having a statistical flashback - it's almost half an NG lifetime since I reached 10,000 Experience - that was awesome. Thinking of the things that I've accomplished since then, I'm not doing too bad to be almost triple-listed for 20k stats

Pretty neat level, even though I've seen a few saying otherwise. Oh well, their loss. It's not a level I'll stop at since I wish to reach the end.

You should at least shoot for 10k experience; Level 31 I think. It's only 2 years worth of effort. :P

You know when I first came across your name a long time ago, I actually thought it was derived from it. As you can tell I don't play Final Fantasy. :P

Yeah if the admins don't tack on another 40 more levels. You'll be collecting a pension by the time you reach The End.

I remember waiting 10 minutes for a .swf to load, the flash would load in a silly place and LegendaryFrog and Knox were popular.

Meh. I might end up going a lot further than I think I will. If I got on enough to get 10k exp then I'd definitely be quad listed by the time I retired, so it's a possibility. I'm not writing 10,000 reviews though. Haha.

Please. If they share the same IP at the same house, Coop would beat him to all the UJ flashes and the poor kid would never get any BP points. He'd be running NG through a proxy for the first 4 years. :P

If that were to happen, I think I'd at least pay for a second internet connection, even if it was only a mobile internet dongle thingy. You darned kids and your new found technowotsits!

I've actually considered handing Coop83 over to my first born - sort of a family legacy, if you will :P

10,000 Reviews is just insane. That's what? nearly 2% of the portal with only .2% of it being actually watchable. It would be hard to do without being caught for being repetitive and spammy nowadays. Lame review mods. :P
