I've finally kicked the habit and walked away from the time vampire that is a modern computer. I will still have my mobile. Cheers.

That's unfortunate--I hope you'll keep posting. You're a good poster, IMO--it would be sad for the forum to lose you.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

If King is out, we can very much just disband the forum.

This is... not good news.

Of course, there is always The Rule. Let's hope it applies.

Sounds like an event so thrilling we need an entire thread so that people wouldn't hijack other threads with their protestations of despair.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

The question here is whether Al and Joe Republic will be able to provide the necessary quotient of amusing snark on their own. I hope so.

There is an old adage from my beloved game of chess: "Don't worry about what has come off the board; worry about what's still on it!"  This is one of those very few cases where that adage doesn't help, because when you lose the King, you have to play a whole different game.

But, as it turns out, the joke is on you, King, because even when a chess game is lost, the King can never leave the board.

Translation:
Find another computer, King, and get your ass back to this forum!

You're getting rid of your computer?  Goodness, I couldn't function without mine (then again, hand writing and hand drawing a case study of a severe winter convective storm with my poor penmanship and terrible drawing skills would probably be pretty bad).

your response to his apparent statement, is irrrrrr or in other words, a statement in which one can find solace within their own mind because they are too feeble to connect with the severe reality of the situation.


Good Job, you are an irrrrrrr

lol@everyone posting images- King can't see them since he's using the mobile version of the forum! Same goes for hyperlinks, and pretty much everything else besides plain text.

Hope to see you remain active though, King.

But anyways, based on my username, DIBS ON BEING NEW KING

We should give a troll the title of King. If we ruin the prestige of the role, it may force him to come back and reclaim it.
