Salmon has been busy KOL'ing. He's very serious about it.

Actually, he did have a picture of himself and a female companion in his profile for a while. It's not there now, though.

You're a BoA scripter, so someone's bound to revive you. Goodness knows we don't have enough of those around here.

Also, elements don't choose themselves. Go pick one! Or Dikiyoba will probably pick one for you when you're revived. But I'm sure you want to pick your own element, right?

Thanks. Now I just need to get my browser to cooperate.

By the way, is Bomber going to be appearing in the story again?

Yes. 23 elements are "because Dikiyoba the Great has so ordained"

I can see it now. Bomber walks into the forum, dripping wet. He goes right up to the line of approaching rats, inexplicably starts screaming, then explodes in a huge ball of flames. Spiderweb's first suicide bomber.

Still not a recant...

The internet is swarming with pictures of men with their lady friends. One that was there but isn't there now is about as much proof as this shows that I've dyed my hair blond.

I don't ask for much really. I would accept Salmon's word for it, if he would actually say the words.

I've been purposely not posting just to see how many suckers still believed Salmon' prank. Then I realized it was really just Jewels...

I had that 'ladyfriend' in my old profile picture thrown to the rancor for insolence, so it didn't seem right to keep it there, no matter how good it made me look. As for a picture of me logged on to my account, that would be hard since the only digital camera I have on hand is built into my computer. I've posted at least three other pictures of me on these boards if you care to find them. Otherwise, if you give me a little time, I could probably come up with a picture of me wielding my trade mark slith spear. It's not that I really feel I need to prove myself to you, but I just look so damn awesome when I do epic poses with that spear!

Tsk, tsk. Even in all that, no direct denial.

How hard is it to say?

I think I'll call you Emperor Salmon from now on 'cause you obviously enjoy the joke. I'll be your sucker and everyone can laugh. And laughter, being the best medicine, will be the balm of life that brings everyone back to beat you in the end.

Hmm… that reminds me, I should get back to doing that scenario. Not that I care particularly much about New Years resolutions, but I would like to get that done.

Really? Huh. Who knew? (Obviously you did.)

Alright, let the records show: Californium. I'm from California, and I seem to have few uses to people in the story. :D

You better move quick and get an element, Tullegolar! They're going fast! Well, no they're not, but you're running out of options.

Dikiyoba, I sent you a PM about an idea I had.

EDIT: Nemesis, you're now on the periodic table.

Even the UBB has it's own element! Unbibium (UBB 122)

So if the boards collapse, all we have to do is combine Galactic Core with Unbibium and it will be revived!

An element, hmm. Well, a sudden attack of OCD is telling me to go with the lowest numbered element, Scandium. But if Dikiyoba can think of a better one, I trust her judgement.

Unibibium is hard to acquire. Instead, I recommend:

Iä! Iä! UBB'Nigurath fhtagn!

Of course it's hard to acquire! Unibibium doesn't exist.

I don't want to have to say this, but this thread has made me inclined to agree with Jewels. The refusal of both parties to deny their uniplicity can only mean one of two things:

1) Salmon is ET

2) Salmon and ET want people to be confused about whether or not they are the same person

#2 seems completely out of character for ET (although not Salmon). But ET's recent posts have not sounded entirely like his first posts. They have in places, but in other places they have sounded more silly and less bizarrely imperial -- more like Salmon.

The other thing that troubles me is that ET has no backstory whatsoever. Most members end up here because of a game, or less commonly, another member. Neither of those is the case for ET, unless he came first and then lurked, and that seems completely out of character for him.

So it's not the only possibility, but there is absolutely nothing to contradict Salmon being ET, and it now makes more sense than any other option.

You can add Slarty and TM to the list of non-believers. So it's not just Jewels.

Well, that was completely off-topic.

Sometime after Dikiyoba gets a direct answer denying or confirming that Salmon and Emperor Tullegolar are the same person.

I have already explained my motives. First of all, I quite enjoy spreading confusion. It helps me sort the weak from the strong. I suppose I can now add you and TM to my list of weak, as you were not able to follow simple evidence and come to the same conclusion everyone else has.
quote:

I remember explaining this before as well, it at least two surveys. I used to come here for Geneforge character editors, though I never really read anything else here until I became a member. I became a member because I noticed a Geneforge debate in which everyone's opinion was wrong. I joined, participated, and was quickly banned. I have continued to act the same as I have since before my banning, though I would say you've all warmed to me since I’ve not been banned again for doing the same things I always have. Whatever. Backstory enough for you?

For Dikiyoba's story's sake, I hearby give an official imperial decree: Salmon is not me, and I am not Salmon.

Edit: It was actually kind of fun while it lasted, Salmon.
