Aneristic Illusions / Re: North Korean Suicide Human Torpedoes?!?!?
« on: April 22, 2010, 10:11:04 pm »
Guess its cheaper and lighter than using regular Torpedoes?

Or more cartoonishly villainous, which I'm pretty sure is Kim Jong Il's goal.

FACT.  The detained reporters brought home by Bill Clinton's visit were actually rescued from being tied to a railroad track.  FACT.

Oh, nope I've got a pretty clear picture of the thread.  I was asking about the youtube link, which I see you also replied to.  Thanks.

There are too many damned alliances going on in this place.

Give me the rundown?  I have a strict no links policy at work and I'll forget to check when I'm home in 7 hours.

I yakked on a plant.

I genuinely don't see why Cain's actions here come as a surprise to anyone.  He's been saying very many of these same things for months now.  This was the most reasonable way he's phrased it actually, as a good many of them are along the lines of losing faith in the posters here, hinting at flouncing, saying his threads don't get the attention they deserve, etc.

That said, it doesn't mean he hasn't made reasonable points in this thread.  We really do need to remember a lot of us respect one another.  The flip side of that is not getting all butthurt when harsh words are exchanged, which goes into what was said about giving each other the benefit of the doubt.  Cram said Rat had stopped posting here, and that's disappointing to me because Rat's a pretty alright guy.  He and I had a brief harsh exchange in the anarchy thread but no reason to create bad blood, at least on my end, and I would hope he feels the same.

There are too many damned alliances going on in this place.  It's understandable we all have posters we agree with or like more than others, some close friends and some we don't really care for.  One problem is when we start throwing down with anyone that even momentarily crosses those people.  Just because we like them doesn't mean they're right and conversely just because we dislike someone doesn't make them wrong.  I'd like to see a bit more separation of the drama from the actual discussion in here.  Using someone's character as a measure of their content is fucked up.  I'm thinking of Lys' cold reading thread here, which was pretty interesting, turning into a shitfest about fleecing old ladies of their social security checks or some ridiculousness.

It is pretty damned disappointing to see the list of people who've flounced recently, though.  With the exception of GS I don't recall a single one of them actually being directly involved in the drama either.  So anyone who says this doesn't affect the board so long as it's contained in the right place has their argument right there.  The rest of the board loses good posters because they don't feel like putting up with stupidity anymore.

That was incredible.  My first impression of the numbers and names acting as your work juxtaposed against your thoughts was pretty positive.  Once they started changing the effect was your thoughts bleeding into your work, becoming too overwhelming to maintain control over.  I could picture a spreadsheet where halfway down an office worker started actually inputting those words as names.  I can even see the next step, imagining the reactions of higher ups who notice the mistake.  The meetings and the severe terror of the person who did it when they realize what they'd done.

I'm not sure if that was your intention, but it worked powerfully well.  This is among the best ones yet.


Using secret mod dickishness powers to change thread titles take a stab at Nigel.  

It's your thread.  :roll:

If you split someone else's posts out of it, and renamed THAT thread something like "EoC sucks dog dicks", that would be an abuse. IMO. Also, moreso, it would make you a huge asshole.

Faust is a chicken-fucking faggot.

EoC fists cats.

RWHN has a debilitating jenkem addiction.

Freeky has an (until now) undisclosed fetish for Glenn Beck in nipple-pasties.

Dok is, in fact, Pud's retarded brother.

Alty likes to watch EOC fist cats.

Telarus has a profound and disturbing appetite for animated tentacle rape.

...and TTM is boring.  :lulz:

Building bridges through bestiality.


sleeping on his stomach tonight.

Oh so it was TTM this time, with your track record record that comes as a bit of a surprise. Well if you didn't start it for once, then carry on.

Oh, I totally started it. He just disseminated it like crablice through a homeless shelter.

Dissemination:  TTM/Nigel

Threads currently spagged up with this shit and how they got there:
Drama Vote (this thread) - Started by TTM
Pics III:  The Afterbirth - spagged by Nigel
Unlimited Apocalyptic Romance - spagged up by Nigel
TTM is boring ITT - split from Apocalyptic romance by TTM
ATTN:  Ten Ton Mantis - bumped by TTM
What makes you happy? - spagged up by Nigel
Repost appreciation thread - started by TTM
ATTN:  TTM - renamed from Nigel's stupid love life, bumped by Nigel
Open Bar - referenced by other posters

Total threads spagged up - 9 (4 TTM, 4 Nigel, 1 Other)
Total threads started - 3 (TTM)

But it's okay because it's all in Apple Talk.  So when people smear shit all over the walls of your bathroom it's cool, because your bathroom is made for shitting.

Literate Chaotic / Re: ITT: Original Story Ideas
« on: April 21, 2010, 10:26:58 pm »
Right now writing a short story set in a post-totalitarian America.  The main character finds work by competing in brewing competitions at different settlements.  The winners get a contract for the settlement and are provided with ingredients and lodging until their supply is completed, when they can either sign on again or find work elsewhere.  The highly structured nature of the collapsed government has ingrained an obsessive quality to most people in regards to their chosen professions, making these events pretty intense and personal.  It's been shelved for a while because I'm finding it very, very difficult.

So where are we at? Has anyone called General Stuart yet?  :lulz:

Nigel, you need to stop acting like an asshole.  That's where we're at.  Don't take this as a personal attack because I'm not out to get you.  Sometimes you can be pretty cool.  This is not one of those times.  Just take a step back, recognize you're acting like an asshole, and stop.  Right now nobody is buying the justifications you're giving for your behavior.

Other - shut the fuck up.  Failing that, single thread merge.

TTM, no troll, your new sig is slowing the fuck out of my browser.

And TTM and Nigel, total troll here, your petty retard drama bullshit is aggravating the fuck out of my

ETA:  Looks like I'm having a slow browser day, so it's probably not that sig specifically.  Only the latter part stands.

It's because he's "tough on crime" FKC.  You know what crime is in this instance?  It's not an elderly woman getting her purse snatched.  It's anything that people don't want to look at, anything that might hint at people that things aren't always okay all the time.  "Cleaning up the" city/county/etc is exactly what it sounds like and not what they mean by it.  It's not erasing the graffiti and picking up the litter, it's ridding an area of its undesirable elements - which is different in every area.  Maybe it Mexicans in Arizona, maybe it's heroin junkies in New Bedford.

Lawsuits might be draining the county of its money, but people can't see that.  They hear about it, but there's no visual representation of that money going away apart from a few charts a few times a year.  They can see that their local undesirables are swept away, out of their lives.  And Arpaio is very, very good at this.

EoC, working for a "tough on crime" Sheriff.
