We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.

I'm still waiting for my name to turn pinkmagenta That would be a sign in the right direction.

Ok, but you're going to get recycled content for the time being.

Is the joke that there is no Madness this year?

The joke is that we'll all be on edge for the rest of the year, expecting the Madness to start without warning.

Maybe the rest of us should launch a pre-emptive strike and begin the Madness manually.

No one would have been surprised by an April 1 start, so obviously we didn't start it on April 1, as anyone could have predicted, and yet some of you paradoxically seem surprised by that fact.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Wait, you're suggesting that there is some sort of telepathic projection and that none of this is actually real? If that is the case, how can I tell what is real in the first place? Is this even my phone that I'm typing on?
