Re: 1190: "Time"

Re: ▓▒░ Thank you ALL ░▒▓

One aspect of being cataclysmically shy: I'm constantly worried about offending people. I should compliment BlitzGirl for that. But will she think I'm just riding her coattails?

Re: Blindpost from NP1268

How is it that when there's speculation about what's going to happen next, we go through a dozen pages in 16 hours, and then when The End has been announced, we go through 20 in 8? Slow down up there! Don't worry, things are already quieting down up here. And soon they will be even quieter, I fear....
