How about this bet then: If I can find a post where you reference Georgetown being really expensive, you'll stop posting on 2+2 forever. If I can't, I'll stop posting on 2+2 forever. Deal?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioheadBlog, ArrestedDevelopmentBlog, and Forum Discussion

that's not what i was talking about, sorry jtg

i would only post that in the relevant threads/discussion, (say, the law school thread for example), and never in the motivation of bragging, especially since it's a huge, huge beat and im likely to die alone and penniless.

I read like four threads (none of them are relevant to how much your education costs because they're all in Sporting Events) and I'm sure I've seen you mention it several times.

ok go ahead and find 4 separate examples of where i bring it up in an irrelevant discussion/thread. i'd like to see it. im not leaving SE if you do, though.

the implication that i would brag about something like that across multiple 2+2 threads is absurd, especially considering that it's an enormous beat.

and i highly, highly doubt you can find even 2SE irrelevant discussions/threads where i mention it, much less 4, but it's certainly possible i guess. i have 37k posts i dont remember them all (LKJ on student life remembers them for me because he thinks im his soulmate imo).

And the only thing I had before this year were CAA teams, so trust me even if they have some lolbad losses, it will be better than what I'm used to.

Since there's nothing on the line I'm not going to keep looking for another SE thread. But just doing a search of your name and "tuition" shows three or four more hits in other forums. Why did the bar go from you never mentioning it to finding four separate examples anyway?

Back to my original point: Did you really think you've never mentioned it on 2+2 like you originally said? If so, I'm happy I could teach you something tonight. I won't even charge you $47,000 (nearly $70,000 with living expenses or maybe it's nearly $72,000) like they do at Georgetown.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioheadBlog, ArrestedDevelopmentBlog, and Forum Discussion

It's not ownage. I said it's certainly possible and I don't remember my posts. And my original post referencing fingerbanging/k was obviously a light hearted Karak joke and not some sort of serious argument or butthurt defense. I highly doubted 4 and that's 3, so aha! And 2 of them were somewhat relevant and basically said the same exact thing.

I'm more amazed that jtg actually spent the time to go find all that. I'm not sure to what end. I know he absolutely hates me (I have no idea why, especially since we used to be friends!), but wow, that's dedication!

And, again, as I'm about to say for the 3rd time now, my point was that I wasn't bragging about the cost of the law school or paying that much money. I'm not sure how much more painfully clear I can make that. That was my entire point.

If you guys don't want me posting here/ITT anymore, just let me know. I'm usually ****ing around, but jtg's suddenly seriousface.jpeg approach to this makes me think perhaps it was more than everyone just playing along with the joke. My apologies. Anyone who knows me or how I operate IRL knows it's just a schtick for fun and that I'm being coy much of the time.

I'm sorry some of you have taken it so seriously and I sincerely apologize if I've come off in this way. I really don't mean to offend or come across as a snob. I'm not being emo or anything; I'm not going to get butthurt if you don't appreciate my humor. I just don't want to cross the line from entertaining to a blight on the thread.

I haven't slept in nearly 24 hours, so I reserve the right to rethink some of this post tomorrow.

Edit - And to be clear, the reason I feel this post is necessary is because IRL Karak and 2+2 Karak are slowly merging due to some of the poker work I'm doing. People who I work for and have worked for are aware of my online monicker and read my posts on 2+2. I don't want them thinking that the way I post is anything more than just tongue-in-cheek on some of the boards. Perhaps (or certainly) it's my own fault for creating that dilemma. And it's also quite possible I'm just overreacting due to how sleep deprived I am atm.

I'd think going to a 750k/year law school would make you a better debater.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, RadioheadBlog, ArrestedDevelopmentBlog, and Forum Discussion

"I can't believe you took the time to do that" is such a great defense (I'll pass on the easy law school joke). But it didn't take a lot of time to type "tuition" and "karak" into the search engine. Although, I admit I spent about 30 additional seconds scrolling through your early posts in the Big East thread since I remembered you posting it there.

I don't know why you think I absolutely hate you. I don't. I just think your posting has become absolutely terrible during the last year or two. Now you either don't realize people are serious when they tell you that or you think it's cool to be awful. And that makes me sad because you used to be one of my favorites.

No. Obviously I was incorrect in the original post I made. I should have known better than to speak in absolutes or make an off-the-cuff post on something of that nature. I'm not going to try to stick up for myself there.

For what it's worth, I wrote that before you added all the stuff about people playing along with the joke. Weird.

odell was a terrible poster. He was also one of my favorite posters. There's a dichotomy between being a terrible poster and an unentertaining poster. I never considered that corny jokes or general fanboyism could have such a detrimental effect on the reading experience of other people on Sporting Events and the thread we both post in. Although I don't post there much anymore because the thread has gotten pretty bad/boring overall and I'm not just going to post generic nonsense.

It's possible I've done a bad analysis, but I was planning on reeling in all my 2+2 posting soon anyways for the aforementioned reasons. I just wanted to take the time to clarify myself.

The "wow you're not actually a ******ed child?" reaction I got from many people who heard some of the Black Friday commentary I did was sort of revealing, I suppose.
