I mean, for all intents and purposes, he's an Anacardo-ian zealot.

While I'm sure you could dig up a litany of embarrassments in my posting history, at least nowadays I try to listen to people honestly and learn something.

Cliff notes: Anacardo is just smart enough to drive you insane if you try to have a real conversation with him.

'Cardo is my buddy, but I agree that this can be pretty true.

Yeah, just imagine now that any time you try to make a point, you get dismissed as full of **** because he's been there, man, and he knows you better than you know yourself, and what makes your ideas so special anyway? You think because you've "tested" them in "life" instead of just "formulating" them in "your head," that you're not just as full of **** as me? Yeah. Metaphor. In. Clipped. Sentences. As. Substitute. For. Wit.

Re: OOT let's get a Survivor going

I have had MANY infuriating "debates" with 'Cardo, I'm just lucky enough that they are over the privacy of gmail chat and not on a public forum.

But anyway, -1 to 'Cardo vs Nath, wouldn't want to lose either imo.

Yeah, the latest thing was far from my first, just the one that finally set me off on "Okay, I'm sick of this ****."

Re: OOT let's get a Survivor going

I'm pretty sure illeagle has me on ignore, which means that I wouldn't be able to PM him. It's pretty awesome that I made his ignore list.

Re: OOT let's get a Survivor going

skunk,

Two BAD posters is the point. You are not a bad poster so one of two things will happen: you'll win in a landslide, yawn, or you'll somehow lose because of people voting against you for novelty's sake. Neither of these is particularly fun. illeagle vs. someone equally craptastic is the way to go.

right essentially David vs Goliath type battles are only occasionally fun

You really want David vs David or Goliath vs Goliath

Re: OOT let's get a Survivor going

I don't actually expect illeagle to accept anyone's survivor challenge, and you're right, it's better if we matched him up with someone as terrible. Like... ummm...

Re: OOT let's get a Survivor going

I just browsed the first few pages and it is just people voting. Is that it?

A topic is started and people just vote -- The actual participants do nothing?
