She's a younger model. It's a pun, see.

Oh. I do now.

Yeah, he's still a jerk.

For all the jokes about French politics, their president was smart enough after getting elected to trade in his wife for a new model.

The animation studio is Studio Ghibli. "Spirited Away" is wonderful, and I also rank "Howl's Moving Castle" as one of my favourite films.

And, everybody knows the best Beatle is the only one who is still alive. Richard Starkey, come on down!

I remember going to Irony Central and reading it all when these boards were blocked at a school I was transferred to for a week. Needless to say, I found the Party's aims noble and valiant.

I'd actually read somewhere that Seuss was a supporter of the far-right, or something, but that doesn't mean his books aren't damn good.

This could be a bizness opportunaty for someone.

You'd lose too many men trying to get to the raptor hive, never mind telling them your plans. And, for all we know, they might already be heat-shielded - everybody who was sent to find out was devoured before they could return.

Actually, you're probably not missing out on much apart from GF4, and even then it's not too bad.

I don't think it matters. Once the RAPTORS land, we're done for.

This may be the only way to survive, though it says nothing of asteroids.

Well, you're not telling us any plans, are you? I had to make one up. :P

I'm also sorry for posting that script - I won't go into it here, at Slarty's asking, but it was really just the view of one member - me - and really shouldn't have been blown up as it was.

I would offer to go and change it, but it seems moot now.

Match 1: Alorael v. The Silent Assassin

As has been said, the Silent Assassin isn't a member, but technically, neither is Alorael - bots aren't people too, I'm afraid, even if they did make/were made by Arancaytar. The battle also never really starts - with Grimm unable to tell anybody where the Silent Assassin is, or what he's upto, he never makes it anywhere near Alorael - lego people do not move on their own. Alorael, on the other hand, is at the top of a tall, tall, tower, waiting for movement that will never come. Eventually, Alorael gets bored, and goes kwilting. The Silent Assassin stays exactly where he is. Forever. The Silent Assassin wins.

Match 2: The Almighty Doer of Stuff v. Arancaytar

Arancaytar amasses all manner of widgets, and scripts, including his latest "masterpiece", thinking that if he can block The Almighty Doer of Stuff's posts, he will be safe. Not so. ADoS posts several page-stretching images (which he's hosting on Aran's webspace, adding insult to injury), but Aran is unable to see the offending material. Blindly, Aran sends out several bots, but actually directs them to burn down the archives in his blinkered state. As the scent of history burning reaches his nostrils, The Almighty Doer of Stuff begins sneezing, and takes Aran out with one well-aimed snotball, winning the match.

Match 3: Goldenking v. Drakefyre

James is too busy reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar to pay any attention to Goldenking, at first, so the fight seems terribly one-sided. And it is, until James lets slip certain (false) details about Geneforge 7: The Ornks Revolt. In his cannister-addled state, Goldenking falls for it, allowing our resident 7 year old to make Goldenking disappear into last February. Do not mess with the infant Vahnatai Whitean. Drakefyre goes back to reading about the Gruffalo.

Match 4: Ash Lael v. Dintiradan

Christian rock, with a sultry voice, versus a deth ray. Meh, this is hardly fair, until you realise that even Jeff Vogel had to think twice about banning Ash. Dintiradan, using the Evil Overlord's Handbook, manages to avoid falling into the pitfalls all other overlords have done before, and refuses Ash any last words. Unable to charm his way out, Ash loses to Dintiradan's plan to impose atheism on the airwaves.

Match 5: Nemesis v. Emperor Tullegolar

beginfightscript;

variables:
int i,j,level,modifier;

body;

beginstate INIT_STATE
i = 1; //Tullegar
j = 39; //Items counter

//Take away all of Tully's weapons.
while(j >= 0) { destroy_char_item(i,j);
j = j - 1;
}

//Nerf his level.
level = (1 - get_level(i)); //Find his current level
set_level(i,1); //Then set it to one.

//Take away all of his experience, making him a noob.
modifier = 100;
while(level < 1) {
change_char_xp(i,-25 * modifier);
level = level + 1;
}

//Now remove all his traits.
modifier = 0;
while(modifier <= 22) {
set_char_trait(i,modifier,0);
modifier = modifier + 1;
}

//And all his spells.
modifier = 0;
while(modifier <= 19) {
if(get_spell_level(i,0,modifier) > 0)
change_spell_level(i,0,modifier,-1 * get_spell_level(i,0,modifier));
if(get_spell_level(i,1,modifier) > 0)
change_spell_level(i,1,modifier,-1 * get_spell_level(i,1,modifier));
modifier = modifier + 1;
}

//And his skill points so he can't train again.
change_pc_skill_pts(i,-1 * (get_char_skill_pts(i)));

//And now remove all stats. :)

j = 0;
while (j < 32) {
modifier = get_stat(i,j);
alter_stat(i,j,-1 * modifier);
j = j + 1;
}

//Remove coins so he can't bribe other members/buy new gear.
change_coins(-1 * coins_amount());
Nemesis wins, because BoA scripting owns single stat-altering cannisters.

Match 6: Zeviz v. Stareye

Zeviz's flower power, or even the power of his nuclear arsenal, is nothing campared to Stareye's glower power, or his boot. It's lucky then, that Zeviz can only be beaten up for three turns instead of dying. Eventually, Stareye will get tired of stomping on people (haha, insert Tully reference here), and then one well-aimed missile will wipe him out. Zeviz, and the power of a disco nap, wins.

Match 7: Student of Trinity v. Salmon

Mmmm. SoT is perfect, in every way. Just don't ask me how (all that can be said is that nobody can properly describe the aesthetics of a vagina, so we shouldn't hold that against him). Salmon, on the other hand, despite being only half-amazing, has a longer shaft on his pole. And more posts. And we all know what that means, kids. (If you don't, you clearly don't go to SV.) Alas, SoT isn't #7557, or Tully, and Student of Trinity refuses to be baited. With a well-timed, off-hand comment, Salmon is left up the creek without a paddle.

Match 8: Jewels v. Terror's Martyr

Gah, this is hard. And I hope that Jewels doesn't mind me painting her in a bad light. Huggles!

Anyway. TM engages with mothers better than anybody else. Jewels is a mother, wanting TM to push her buttons. The fight starts with a bang, but not of the destructive kind, and ends with the same. Afterwards, Jewels motherly insistance that "it's okay, it happens to a lot of people", enrages TM, who stalks off to make a scenario, heighten his senses in a way that would break the CoC if mentioned, and talk philosophy, whilst Jewels goes to Truesite and makes some more walkthroughs. They probably never see each other again. Both lose, by allowing love to tear them apart.

Erm, sorry to throw a spanner, but Aran can't edit posts when he does it through proxy. He's said so himself. Which means that the nose, and the staff, and the swirly swirlies still get him.

I shall write reasons and vote when I am not half asleep.
