If one tries with enough persistence, sentences could be transcribed that circumvent the whims of our maniacal rulers, except of course that they have the ability to reach in to the past.

Viva la resistance. The fifth column lives.

Working for me. Forum Zul-Gurub be great to lighten the mood for random common words and mask naughty words. When it affects legitimate conversation, it detracts from the forum.

This be SUPPOSED to be a small sequence of programmed instructions about a specific comic and it be lost any sense of meaning. If the I feel like of the mods be-did to slow down the viewership and relevance of this small sequence of programmed instructions, consider it a success!


Corrado: This has absolutely nothing to do with this particular conversation. Do not develop an inflated sense of importance just because this discussion is unusually prolific.

That being said, SexyTalon is active right here and is actively fucking with you. This is fairly typical, as I (and likely the other mods as well) all have specific little ant hills that we're playing with.

It's a joke, and it will be over soon. Well, soon in a relative scale.

Indubitably. If one resorts to only the most esoteric of vocabulary, ultimate success will ensue (????).

By my calculations, everything will be at completion in approximately 168 newpix, assuming it ends at the end of April Fool's.

Easier solutions exist. I reckon, however, that the mods don't take too kindly to them.

Not really a fan of the transformation this place has undergone since I departed yesterday. I Guess I shall resort to just watching progress with no commentary until completion. I have so many more free moments in my day now that I shant have to keep up with countless postings.
