It's been finished to some degree apparently.


The clock stopped at 255 hours because it took so long for them to get there.

So this is ridiculous:
http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon

They've been in the same area for 36 hours now, by my count. It was working just by first type first serve but they just added this anarchy/democracy thing which is interesting but I don't know how it works. I guess it was in desperation to try to get these fucks out of the basement and stop them from releasing their best pokemon again, lol. I also notice that start spam has lessened.

We just need a prince of Pokemon to come dictate their actions......

Lol, is this really some demonstration/test comparing democracy to anarchy?
No one is trying to argue against that, but yeah right... as if real life equates to a game of pokemon.

Still, its interesting that soo many people are willing to try.

Who am I?
I am a nobody,
and the odds are
 that you are too.

If you say its a bad idea
 to listen to a nobody;
you likely are also saying nobody,
should listen to you.

Do not trust the authorities on a subject;
simply because they are the authority.

Listen to them only if what they say is truth.

Everything comes to an end, reader. It is an old truism to which may be added that not everything that lasts, lasts for long. This latter part is not readily admitted; on the contrary the idea that an air castle lasts longer than the very air of which it is made is hard to get out of a person's head, and this is fortunate, otherwise the custom of making those almost eternal constructions might be lost.
