I had to take a few days off NG to collect my thoughts. Modding is really becoming a buzz kill and I didn't get any joy in Clock Day. I can just feel myself drifting from NG.

Yeah I noticed you were gone for a few days. Wondered what was up, thought you might be on vacation for a couple of days or something.

If moderating becomes such a drag to you that you'd rather stay away from NG nowadays, maybe it'd be good if you gave up a task or two? It'd be a shame if you just burn out like that and suddenly disappear.

Yep, that's what I would guess. It's not that they really NEED to know I suppose, but it would be nice if they could tell their customers what they are serving.
And that's why you need to ask if their is any cat meat in your sandwich. You'll never know for certain until you ask.

I'm sure they'll deny it, even if they don't really know :p

Oh you mean like the gay bears club? :p
Yeah. The way Chronamut makes it sound, the country is full of them.

Lol! Even on our annual 'gay parade' I don't see many gay bears. Although there must be a wagon of them.

It all happened when I deposited for you a few weeks back. I thought "he needs the same amount of experience as me to level. Sweet, we'll both level on the same day. Thus, I laid in wait!

Yeah, I didn't suppose you were watching my experience count that closely.

Let's just see how the others handle my dragon rage.

Lol! It looks like Haggards submission also got included in the collection. I don't know how the order is determined...
The collection is ordered by score. Somehow mine has more than most yet there's so much great content out there.

Ahaha, yes, to be honest I was a bit surprised that yours came out with such a great score. Considering it was just a silly little short :p

Hopefully they'll at least offer the oppertunity to see it in 2D if they are also in 3D.
As far as I'm aware, all films are watchable in 2D.

Well so far I've never seen a 2D film after which I said: "Damn, this would have been great in 3D!".

I'm glad most great directors agree with that.
Then the film industry isn't as lost as I thought it was.

Nope, the film industry is generally doing alright I think, though this year doesn't look too good so far in my opinion.

As long as good directors stay away from money grubbing gimmicks there is still hope :)

Oh yes, I've heard those were quite a bitch.
They're not as bad as you think. The first four are pretty easy once you're strong enough but the other four will give you a challenge. However, the biggest of all is Penance.

I heard Dark Bahamut was quite a challenge. A friend of mine who has FFX said he couldn't get passed him. I guess the likes of Shiva and Ifrit are pushovers.

Yeah, but it took ages. I remember I had Cloud at level 90 or so at some point and I was nearly done maxing his Strength stat, but that alone already required hours upon hours.
Yeah, and Cloud is a must for your party no matter what.

Oh yeah, right, you couldn't even switch him out, could you? So you can only train two other party members at the same time then... bah!

I wouldn't call it great, but it's a fairly good one and the mod gold makes it come out nicely.
And I had it beforehand. I do miss it, though. The trident isn't bad but again, I've got a bad level icon to go through next.

Heh, the fucking cupido bow :p They should've made that a wooden bow and not a golden one.

I've always been fond of the trident. I believe it has gotten some criticism in this thread in the past, but come on... fucking Poseidon anyone? He's definitely high up there in the most awesome Greek gods list.

Silver whistle! When are we allowed to post whistle upgrades here? Since I started making list, I don't think I've ever actually seen anybody post about their whistle upgrading, so I'm assuming it's probably silver.

Hopefully I'll reach Gold and Deity soon.

Haha, yeah. I just like the phrase "off with their heads". It's so... catchy.

It's probably the most quotable phrase of the Alice in Wonderland book.

Oh I see, I see. I looked it up and it did say Verliese, but plural with an N seemed more logical to me (cause in Dutch it's also usually an extra 'en' or 'n' for the plural).
I thought for quite a while how plurals are formed in german. It has something to do with the article and then there are a few forms. "-e", "-er", "umlaut" (like "Vater" -> "Väter"), "-(e)n" and "s". Wow, now I begin to realize why german is such a hard language to learn.

Yeah, you see? The German grammar really fucked me over when I was in second grade of high school. Well... I didn't do too well on French and Latin grammar either actually :p

The Little Vampire? Doesn't ring any bells here.
Too bad.

It looks like there was a film about about a decade back?

But isn't that genre called "Glamour Rock"?
Yes. Another name is "Hair Metal".

Oh right. But it seems to be more rock than metal.

"Oh there it is, in the front pocket, next to the med kit, C4 explosives, machine guns and my trustworthy swiss knife."
I think in Resident Evil 2 (maybe 1 as well) the bazooka took up two spots in the inventory. But still I don't know how the hell the characters would carry it around. ^^

Perhaps Arnold can?

Oh yeah I do think they do that. Like... rate caravans and all. Kinda like how they rate cars ("this one is modestly priced and is very child friendly.")
Ha. I have yet to see a car magazine that rates cars for their "child friendlyness".

They'd probably call it a 'family car'.

I have no idea. Maybe it went bankrupt?
Or maybe the belgians have a station called RTL 3.

It doesn't look like it when I google search.

Well he IS an ex-CIA agent of course, and martial arts expert, and his old partner betrayed him, and they kidnapped his wife and his daughter, and he has to deal with his past...
Sound totally plausible to me.

All the right ingredients for a good B-movie :p

Hehe, you think they could get them to watch hundreds of episodes live?
Well, if they where inmates in a prison...

That would explain the WHOOOOOOOO-ing when Christina Applegate comes on stage.

Yeah. But they still add pauses then? Or do they cut those out?
It was never taped in front of a live audience, so no need to stop there.

Lol, so they don't take pauses but there is still some laughter? Isn't the fake audience laughing through the dialogues then?

Indeed, she does :p
But I always liked Peg better. XD

Peg? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

I like that neighbour even better than Peg.

*BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!*
*pulls plug*
That should take care of it.

*starts tossing chairs*

At the time when Germany still consisted of hundreds of little kingdoms?
Well, the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation existed until 1871, then the German Reich was founded. Wilhelm II. of Würtemberg was King from 1891 to 1918.
But my historical knowledge of Germany starts with 1933 and ends with 1945. 13 years in school and all I ever learned about Germany was how the Third Reich was founded and how it ended (and everything in between). It's a real shame.

Seriously? So you didn't learn anything at all about how the German tribes fended of Caesars troops and how Germany was so divided in the middle ages?

And what about German scientists and composers? That should be interesting topics.

Here's a list of the alts I know of. I only checked the top 500-200 in EXP so he could have more alts that are lower or higher than that. All of these are in someway connected with Afro_Stud. I only put them on here if they quoted one of Afro_Stud's other alts, have a similar name, or if they're credited in one of his flash submission. (Unless I say otherwise)

You can post any time your whistle upgrades including bronze! You can not post if you whistle level goes down and then you get back too where you are now. So if you go back to bronze and then get silver the current list makers probably won't recognize it.

Hopefully I'll reach Gold and Deity soon.

Good luck its gonna take some time to get to deity but it will be worth it #;-}>

Are you sure about that? When I posted that I got a bronze whistle here on this account, nobody put it on their list, so I didn't even bother posting here when I got bronze on JoiiySpace.

I don't think it will take that long... I guess it really depends if I decide to take a short break from flagging or not, but I've been keeping track of almost every review I flagged since Aug 12th, and this is what I have so far: http://i.imgur.com/49Qks.jpg I censored the end because I flagged some of them fairly recently, so they haven't all been removed.. Most of those reviews were actually flagged with this account, too. I decided to start flagging with my alt (again... it had a bronze whistle before) yesterday.

Yeah, I just noticed I jumped up 62 ranks in Experience from the 19th to the 20th. Doesn't exactly bring me closer to the next milestone there by much, I'm at rank 3930, so the next one wont be till rank 3000.

Ahaha, yes, to be honest I was a bit surprised that yours came out with such a great score. Considering it was just a silly little short :p

I'm very surprised as well. Maybe this site has a lot of TF2 fans or the real Clock contributors got hit badly. SBC's submission is ranked below mine and that isn't right at all. I'm not saying it was a godly game since there are some flaws here and there (especially the choppy frame rate issues) but it deserves more.

As far as I'm aware, all films are watchable in 2D.
Well so far I've never seen a 2D film after which I said: "Damn, this would have been great in 3D!".

There is one moment that I think would be great in 3D and it's this.

Then the film industry isn't as lost as I thought it was.
Nope, the film industry is generally doing alright I think, though this year doesn't look too good so far in my opinion.

Yeah, this year has been bone dry for movies. All I've seen so far is Green Lantern and that was only an average film.

They're not as bad as you think. The first four are pretty easy once you're strong enough but the other four will give you a challenge. However, the biggest of all is Penance.
I heard Dark Bahamut was quite a challenge. A friend of mine who has FFX said he couldn't get passed him. I guess the likes of Shiva and Ifrit are pushovers.

Well, you don't expect Bahamut to be easy at all. :P The first four dark aeons can be tough but only if you haven't trained enough. Funny how outside Europe you'd only have Nemesis to focus on. The dark aeons are one of several reasons why I'll still defend FFX.

Yeah, and Cloud is a must for your party no matter what.
Oh yeah, right, you couldn't even switch him out, could you? So you can only train two other party members at the same time then... bah!

Which isn't a problem since Cloud has the most powerful limit break anyway.

And I had it beforehand. I do miss it, though. The trident isn't bad but again, I've got a bad level icon to go through next.
Heh, the fucking cupido bow :p They should've made that a wooden bow and not a golden one.

A wooden one would be a whole lot better. Put it down to level 41 and we've got ourselves a nice deal. I actually like those silly golden shurikens.

I've always been fond of the trident. I believe it has gotten some criticism in this thread in the past, but come on... fucking Poseidon anyone? He's definitely high up there in the most awesome Greek gods list.

Yeah, it's not been a favourite but hell, if it's to do with Poseidon, it has to be awesome! I tell you, there isn't enough metal songs about him. I only know two songs about him and one of them is borderline metal.

Well I guess this explains why many users got a huge jump in exp including me. Kind of curious though, why would he need that many alt accounts in the first place? Aside from having them be made into joking co-author accounts it kind of feels like they were possibly taking up space in the exp ranks right?

That's the beauty of level 47. Once you reach it, it's not long until you have 14 VP!

Yep yep. Probably the last VP achievement I'll see in a loooong time.

Ahaha, yes, to be honest I was a bit surprised that yours came out with such a great score. Considering it was just a silly little short :p
I'm very surprised as well. Maybe this site has a lot of TF2 fans or the real Clock contributors got hit badly. SBC's submission is ranked below mine and that isn't right at all. I'm not saying it was a godly game since there are some flaws here and there (especially the choppy frame rate issues) but it deserves more.

Well I know there are quite some TF2 players around, but yeah... SBC's submission should be on top of the list in my opinion (even if it wasn't any better than other submissions).

Well so far I've never seen a 2D film after which I said: "Damn, this would have been great in 3D!".
There is one moment that I think would be great in 3D and it's this.

Lol, yeah that would look pretty nice. However, pointy things coming at you isn't anything new in 3D films. In fact, I'd say it's pretty overused jump scare trick by now.

Nope, the film industry is generally doing alright I think, though this year doesn't look too good so far in my opinion.
Yeah, this year has been bone dry for movies. All I've seen so far is Green Lantern and that was only an average film.

Yeah. There are only two 2011 films in IMDB's top 250 and about three or four in total that have a score over 8.0. That's a really low amount, considering most films get rated higher on IMDB when they're still new.

I have seen quite a few 2011 films by now and there is nothing that really blew me away like some of last years films.

I heard Dark Bahamut was quite a challenge. A friend of mine who has FFX said he couldn't get passed him. I guess the likes of Shiva and Ifrit are pushovers.
Well, you don't expect Bahamut to be easy at all. :P The first four dark aeons can be tough but only if you haven't trained enough. Funny how outside Europe you'd only have Nemesis to focus on. The dark aeons are one of several reasons why I'll still defend FFX.

Heh, yeah didn't the Americans get fucked over with this extra? I thought they were pretty pissed about not getting the Dark Aeons sidequest.

Oh yeah, right, you couldn't even switch him out, could you? So you can only train two other party members at the same time then... bah!
Which isn't a problem since Cloud has the most powerful limit break anyway.

Well he's definitely the most useful character, but it'd be better if you could train three characters of your choice instead of two.

Heh, the fucking cupido bow :p They should've made that a wooden bow and not a golden one.
A wooden one would be a whole lot better. Put it down to level 41 and we've got ourselves a nice deal. I actually like those silly golden shurikens.

Exactly!

The golden shurikens look pretty nice too in my opinion. Perhaps better than the level 33 and level 34 icons.

I've always been fond of the trident. I believe it has gotten some criticism in this thread in the past, but come on... fucking Poseidon anyone? He's definitely high up there in the most awesome Greek gods list.
Yeah, it's not been a favourite but hell, if it's to do with Poseidon, it has to be awesome! I tell you, there isn't enough metal songs about him. I only know two songs about him and one of them is borderline metal.

I would expect more metal songs about Norwegian gods, but Greek gods should do well in metal lyrics too :p

In my opinion they earn they are the worst band ever (except for Manowar who are non-competitive :P )
Shall we just have a Cannibal Corpse debate then? :P

Not much to say about this, I'm afraid. Except for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2PzagXsD 0Y

But... I'm making you listen to Manowar.
It's the price I would gladly pay if you'd ever make it to my birthday party. :P
Well, I'll be sure to bring Battle Hymns with me.

All right. So, you are coming next year? ^^

He really should, you know.
And so should Ultor.
That would be the day.

Indeed. Idiot-Finder could leave as well.

I think I'll cuddle a Dratini now.
I'm not into Pokemon.
Maybe you're not but Dratini is still cute.

Not as cute as Bub or Bob.

Haha, yeah. I just like the phrase "off with their heads". It's so... catchy.
It's probably the most quotable phrase of the Alice in Wonderland book.

I never read the original book. I only saw the Disney movie (which is awesome, by the way) and the Tim Burton movie. Oh, and I played that Alice game that came out on PC a few years ago.

Oh I see, I see. I looked it up and it did say Verliese, but plural with an N seemed more logical to me (cause in Dutch it's also usually an extra 'en' or 'n' for the plural).
I thought for quite a while how plurals are formed in german. It has something to do with the article and then there are a few forms. "-e", "-er", "umlaut" (like "Vater" -> "Väter"), "-(e)n" and "s". Wow, now I begin to realize why german is such a hard language to learn.
Yeah, you see? The German grammar really fucked me over when I was in second grade of high school. Well... I didn't do too well on French and Latin grammar either actually :p

Don't worry, most germans (that includes me, I'm afraid) don't know shit about grammar. :P

The Little Vampire? Doesn't ring any bells here.
Too bad.
It looks like there was a film about about a decade back?

At first there where books, then there was a TV series. I didn't even know about the film.

But isn't that genre called "Glamour Rock"?
Yes. Another name is "Hair Metal".
Oh right. But it seems to be more rock than metal.

Well yeah. Metal is a broad field.

"Oh there it is, in the front pocket, next to the med kit, C4 explosives, machine guns and my trustworthy swiss knife."
I think in Resident Evil 2 (maybe 1 as well) the bazooka took up two spots in the inventory. But still I don't know how the hell the characters would carry it around. ^^
Perhaps Arnold can?

Yeah, but at least you can see all the weapons he's carrying. In video games, most of the time you only see the weapon that's currently equipped.

Oh yeah I do think they do that. Like... rate caravans and all. Kinda like how they rate cars ("this one is modestly priced and is very child friendly.")
Ha. I have yet to see a car magazine that rates cars for their "child friendlyness".
They'd probably call it a 'family car'.

Yeah, but whenever I happen to zap into a show about cars it's mostly about sports cars.

I have no idea. Maybe it went bankrupt?
Or maybe the belgians have a station called RTL 3.
It doesn't look like it when I google search.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTL_Group#T elevisiezenders
Yeah, the station just seems to be missing. Also, I had to laugh about the word "verkocht". In german it means something like "overcooked", as in "The pasta is overcooked. The noodles are all much too soft!"

Well he IS an ex-CIA agent of course, and martial arts expert, and his old partner betrayed him, and they kidnapped his wife and his daughter, and he has to deal with his past...
Sound totally plausible to me.
All the right ingredients for a good B-movie :p

But Steven is only a D-actor at best.

Hehe, you think they could get them to watch hundreds of episodes live?
Well, if they where inmates in a prison...
That would explain the WHOOOOOOOO-ing when Christina Applegate comes on stage.

Oh yeah. Good thing they didn't show it in a female prison, then.

Yeah. But they still add pauses then? Or do they cut those out?
It was never taped in front of a live audience, so no need to stop there.
Lol, so they don't take pauses but there is still some laughter? Isn't the fake audience laughing through the dialogues then?

I don't know. I never watched the show with a laughing track. XD

Indeed, she does :p
But I always liked Peg better. XD
Peg? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

But you have to admit that Katey Sagal still looks very nice. Even at age 57.

I like that neighbour even better than Peg.

I never liked Marcy when I was younger. But I was watching some episodes on youtube lately and I have to admit that she looks pretty cute in some of the episodes.

*BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!*
*pulls plug*
That should take care of it.
*starts tossing chairs*

*hides away backstage*

At the time when Germany still consisted of hundreds of little kingdoms?
Well, the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation existed until 1871, then the German Reich was founded. Wilhelm II. of Würtemberg was King from 1891 to 1918.
But my historical knowledge of Germany starts with 1933 and ends with 1945. 13 years in school and all I ever learned about Germany was how the Third Reich was founded and how it ended (and everything in between). It's a real shame.
Seriously? So you didn't learn anything at all about how the German tribes fended of Caesars troops and how Germany was so divided in the middle ages?

No, not really. We had something about the cold war during my last years in school. That was very refreshening.

And what about German scientists and composers? That should be interesting topics.

Not really stuff you'd learn at history classes. But of course we read many german writes in german classes, especially in the "Deutsch Leistungskurs" (I guess explaining the german school system would take too long, but in the Oberstufe or sixth form you chose two Leistungskurse, and then you have 4 lessons in that subject during the week instead of the usual 2). "Faust" is an amazing book.

I checked them up yesterday when I had my sudden gain. I'm back down by a rank now so one of them still needs to come back. They are not official passes until I have more EXP than them.

Most of the accounts I listed as not being Afro_Stud's originally and as questionable(except the alts and whoever owns the accounts I listed at the bottom of the list) are unlocked now. Oddly the account "Postoholic" was unlocked, and it's an alt.

list of alt accounts
Well I guess this explains why many users got a huge jump in exp including me. Kind of curious though, why would he need that many alt accounts in the first place? Aside from having them be made into joking co-author accounts it kind of feels like they were possibly taking up space in the exp ranks right?

I'd like to know exactly how long it takes to deposit for all of them. I've attempted to create two high level alts and both times I stopped because I got tired of switching accounts and didn't really see the point in doing it sense barely anybody will look at the account.

I have seen quite a few 2011 films by now and there is nothing that really blew me away like some of last years films.

At least we've got 2012. Come to think about it, if there was something to be really excited for, it's another Pixar movie but their film for the year was Cars 2.

Well he's definitely the most useful character, but it'd be better if you could train three characters of your choice instead of two.

Yeah, you see? The German grammar really fucked me over when I was in second grade of high school. Well... I didn't do too well on French and Latin grammar either actually :p
Don't worry, most germans (that includes me, I'm afraid) don't know shit about grammar. :P

Lol. It didn't help that I was more of a math kind of guy.

It looks like there was a film about about a decade back?
At first there where books, then there was a TV series. I didn't even know about the film.

Well I guess a film was inevitable if it already had a TV series.

Oh right. But it seems to be more rock than metal.
Well yeah. Metal is a broad field.

I think Rock is even broader.

Perhaps Arnold can?
Yeah, but at least you can see all the weapons he's carrying. In video games, most of the time you only see the weapon that's currently equipped.

True. And a very small backpack.

Except in Zelda. I still have no idea how Link stuffs away a bow, 30 arrows, a giant hammer, 30 bombs, four bottles and 10 sticks in that tunic of his =/

They'd probably call it a 'family car'.
Yeah, but whenever I happen to zap into a show about cars it's mostly about sports cars.

Top Gear isn't mostly about sports cars is it?

It doesn't look like it when I google search.

Yeah, the station just seems to be missing. Also, I had to laugh about the word "verkocht". In german it means something like "overcooked", as in "The pasta is overcooked. The noodles are all much too soft!"

Lol. It means sold here, but I can see the logic behind it meaning overcooked :p

All the right ingredients for a good B-movie :p
But Steven is only a D-actor at best.

No way! He's defnitely A material! He just never had the chance!

That would explain the WHOOOOOOOO-ing when Christina Applegate comes on stage.
Oh yeah. Good thing they didn't show it in a female prison, then.

Heh, well perhaps they also have the "don't drop the soap"-thing in female prisons... :p

Lol, so they don't take pauses but there is still some laughter? Isn't the fake audience laughing through the dialogues then?
I don't know. I never watched the show with a laughing track. XD

I never watched that show at all.

I'm not much of a series fan actually.

Peg? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
But you have to admit that Katey Sagal still looks very nice. Even at age 57.

Looking at some recent pictures I suppose she still looks alright for her age (with a different hair cut). I have seen better looking 'old' woman though.

I like that neighbour even better than Peg.
I never liked Marcy when I was younger. But I was watching some episodes on youtube lately and I have to admit that she looks pretty cute in some of the episodes.

Yeah, though not exactly my taste :p

*starts tossing chairs*
*hides away backstage*

*Start tossing expensive lighting equipment*

Seriously? So you didn't learn anything at all about how the German tribes fended of Caesars troops and how Germany was so divided in the middle ages?
No, not really. We had something about the cold war during my last years in school. That was very refreshening.

Oh yeah the cold war is a pretty interesting topic.

Perhaps you're not so unlucky though. The 20th century is probably one of the more interesting era's in high school history lessons. I remember we had lots of lessons about the Renaissance too and it was SO BORING.

And what about German scientists and composers? That should be interesting topics.
Not really stuff you'd learn at history classes. But of course we read many german writes in german classes, especially in the "Deutsch Leistungskurs" (I guess explaining the german school system would take too long, but in the Oberstufe or sixth form you chose two Leistungskurse, and then you have 4 lessons in that subject during the week instead of the usual 2). "Faust" is an amazing book.

So you mean literature lessons?

We got those too in high school about Dutch and English literature. I think it's too bad though that we only treated snippets of great literature pieces and never had to read a whole book of anything.

Well, you have 8.88 base VP when you're at level 48. Then there's 9.00 base VP at level 49.

But I need more than 1,000 experience now before I level up :(

Can't wait!
And there you go.

I wanted to see more scorching!

Well I know there are quite some TF2 players around, but yeah... SBC's submission should be on top of the list in my opinion (even if it wasn't any better than other submissions).
After all, he IS king!

Of the portal of portals.

Lol, yeah that would look pretty nice. However, pointy things coming at you isn't anything new in 3D films. In fact, I'd say it's pretty overused jump scare trick by now.
It isn't but come on, it's fucking Scorpion with his signature move. It has to be awesome regardless of it being an old trick.

I guess, though I have never been quite into Mortal Kombat. I think it was a bit 'before my time'.

I have seen quite a few 2011 films by now and there is nothing that really blew me away like some of last years films.
At least we've got 2012. Come to think about it, if there was something to be really excited for, it's another Pixar movie but their film for the year was Cars 2.

Which I heard sucked ass. I believe the first Cars wasn't even that good either, so I don't know why they went for a sequel.

Brave is looking promising though.

Heh, yeah didn't the Americans get fucked over with this extra? I thought they were pretty pissed about not getting the Dark Aeons sidequest.
Well, the Europeans had to wait so they threw in this sidequest as a bonus. At least delays for European releases aren't as common now.

Yeah that's good. Although if they throw in extra sidequests then I'd be happy to wait for a few more weeks.

Well he's definitely the most useful character, but it'd be better if you could train three characters of your choice instead of two.
That wouldn't be a bad idea but then again, Cloud is such a useful character who gets EXP for the most part.

Oh well, I guess you don't need to swap Cloud when grinding for a tough battle because you'll probably use Cloud anyway.

Exactly!

The golden shurikens look pretty nice too in my opinion. Perhaps better than the level 33 and level 34 icons.
I think 33 is the best for shurikens. Level 34 looks odd.

But the level 50 shurikens look a lot sharper and nastier.

I would expect more metal songs about Norwegian gods, but Greek gods should do well in metal lyrics too :p
The ones I know do justice to Greek mythology.

That's awesome! So are all the Greek gods covered or are they mostly about Zeus, Poseidon and Hades?

If moderating becomes such a drag to you that you'd rather stay away from NG nowadays, maybe it'd be good if you gave up a task or two? It'd be a shame if you just burn out like that and suddenly disappear.
I would rather give up lurking in General but who else is there who is willing to put up with such retardation. We need someone like 36Holla who can lurk for hours on end.

Yeah it'd be nice to have him back on the team. EyeLovePoozy appears a bit absent too lately which is worrying. I don't know who else is going to take care of the General Forum if he goes too.

I'm sure they'll deny it, even if they don't really know :p
You never know. You might meet a rebellious whistle-blower who wants to get the truth out.

Better get the press ready when that happens.

Lol! Even on our annual 'gay parade' I don't see many gay bears. Although there must be a wagon of them.
I see a few around my town but not to many. Usually they are in good shape considering most of the population.

Cause most of them are a bit on the chubby side? :p

Well, 2 levels time, you'll get to 9.00 Base Voting power as well, then it's the long wait.

But there are now 1,000 point gaps between the levels :(

Old but still hilarious. I will say that Hammer Smashed Face is a sloppy written song, despite it being their hit song.

I hate the vocals on their early albums. I mean, it's Chris Barnes and all, but it still sucks. Chris is much better with SFU.

Also, (not so) interesting side note: My sister-in-law always wore her Cannibal Corpse longsleeves when she was pregnant (just because those longsleeves where quite old and fit pretty well over her belly). She even wore the "Butchered at birth" one from time to time. >_>

Well, I'll be sure to bring Battle Hymns with me.
All right. So, you are coming next year? ^^
Well, I'm hoping to go to Pico Day next year...

But Pico Day isn't on August 13th, is it?

That would be the day.
Indeed. Idiot-Finder could leave as well.
To be honest, he isn't so bad now. His threads are a whole lot better than what I recalled from the last two years.

I haven't followed his postings very much. In my eyes he's still annoying.

Maybe you're not but Dratini is still cute.
Not as cute as Bub or Bob.
Just as cute, I'd say.

I disagree!

If you only read snippets then there's no chance you can understand the whole context. But the context would be pretty important to really understand the snippet, I guess.

Just use a different browser for your alts. It makes it easier on your main browser for your main account.

I actually just remembered a Firefox extention that I use to use that makes it really easy to switch between accounts called Cookieswap. Maybe I'll start using it again.
