    Final Countdown

    Postby Talos Aquinas » 28 Feb 2011 03:20

    You still have about 16:27 left until the deadline.

    (That's approximately sixteen (16) hours and twenty-seven (27) minutes. Hopefully that is clear enough for everyone to understand, and posting it here makes it accessible to the effort-impaired.)

    I find it really confusing.

    In fact, I think I need you to:

    1. Write my entry for me;

    2. Buy me a computer;

    3. Post the entry for me.

    Because I am that fucking special ...

    Anyone who can't write a story in in time for the deadline doesn't understand the mathematics of productivity.

    ZING!

    :lol: :dance:

    Seriously — Kevin should give this one a shot! Not only could he easily write three entries in the time left, but one of them would probably win.

    Nope, too late, by 14 minutes...

    Current UTC (or GMT/Zulu)-time used: Tuesday, 1 March 2011, 00:13:43

    (I'll check the mail & PMs again in a little while to see if there were any more submissions, but this is probably it.)

    Now what happens? I wish someone would post some rules or something around here so a fellow would know what to expect...



    :P
    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    I don't know. I figured that Talos would just send them down the Memory Hole and that would be that.

    Talos is currently refitting himself with some buzzsaw and blenderizer attachments.

    A DAY OF RECKONING IS COMING...

    What, the logging in or the spelling shitefully? :P

    (I've logged in here and over on T(A)U using it quite a bit now. If you see me lurking but not posting anything, that's probably why. I got a dock-keyboard thingy with it, but haven't used it yet.)

    you should see some of the text-messages I send; it takes four or five just
    to get to the point of what I was texting you about ... somewhere along the way,
    my thumbs picked up the rhythm; I am a goddamn amazingly fast typist, and
    once I got a handle on the way the buttons were laid out, I really got good ...

    I'd like to wring your neck, but I seriously doubt I could get both hands around it ...

    To be honest, i've been looking for an excuse to use that smiley. :oops:

    Talos functioned as well as anyone, moronic arrogance coupled with willfull stupidity is never an easy thing to deal with.

    I just had a thought, you don't think the whole thing could've been performed as a parody of kja do you? F*n brilliant if it was but they should've let someone know they were going to exceed the contest parameters.
