COMPOSITE SPIDWEBBER
The composite spidwebber is an 18-year-old American citizen of typically varied but mostly white ethnic makeup, who has just graduated from high school. He's a man, but he's not very masculine at all. Although he thinks everyone is somewhat bisexual, he's quite sure that he's straight. This apparent contradiction may be explained by his general lack of success with the ladies -- he's a virgin, but he seems to know his way around internet porn -- or by his vaguely Christian upbringing, which he rejected several years ago in favor of humanistic atheism. English was his first language, and he sometimes corrects the grammar of others. He enjoys arguing with other people, and sometimes insulting them.

Edit: Updated. It doesn't seem that different to me...

You know, if all you wanted to do was post a description of TM, it wasn't necessary to go to the trouble of conducting a survey first.

About 12 out of 16.

And yes, you got TM pretty accurately there...

No. The idea was that Slartucker was describing the average Spidwebber, i.e, using the most popular answers in the census to create a board average.

This is the first step on the slippery slope to eumembership. Next we'll be banning everyone who isn't TM.

We could start by banning anyone who isn't Imban.

Yeah. The boards would be completely dead then. Aran's trends and such would be right!

Alorael is just worried because he knows that he'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes.

I can confirm that... I found an encyclopaedia from 2014. Must have fallen through a time warp or something. In it, it discusses how Alorael was the first against the wall when the revolution came. Imban was second, and as a result, the boards broke down...

I don't mind being the first against the wall, really, as long as I can then get off the wall with a decent running start. All I need is a rifle and some higher ground.

—Alorael, who has also been led to believe that the revolution is unlikely to include firing squads. Lead pipes are significantly more prominent in upcoming upheavals.

In your case, I imagine "against the wall" would be more in the sense of a schoolyard bully holding some poor boy up against the wall by the back of his shirt.

Ah, but Alo once described himself as having a "large gut" and horrible skin. The bully wouldn't be able to get close enough to pin him against a wall.

And if he did, Alo's skin would put him off.

And how many 50 year old's hang around playgrounds? 'Cus that's damn creepy.

You're obviously forgetting a key piece of Alorael canon.

—Alorael, who could still be held against the wall, more or less. His center of gravity would just be a little farther from the wall than might otherwise be expected.

Actually, there's quite a few 50 year-olds around the playground. Watching their young grandkids.

Isn't Alorael stick-thin and doesn't he have a perfectly flat horizontal line for a mouth, an exactly white (#FFFFFF) face, no fine manipulators and no expression at all?

That is *not* part of the Alorael canon. This makes you a heretic. Burn, unbeliever! :P

Does Alorael have a page at the receptical of all knowledge, Wikipedia?

'Cus this canon lark is a bit hard to keep track of.

I take objection to this claim.

PS- If I don't have success with the ladies, how do you explain being born? Or are you finally admitting that your mom isn't a lady, but rather a dirty, filthy rake?

Cite source, please!

—Alorael, who hopes he won't have to be divided among orthodox, conservative, reform, and reconstructionist Aloraelism. Reconstruction in particular has an unwholesome ring to it. He's happy with his current construction, thank you very much.

I think you need to update the Demographics. There has been some interesting additions.
