This thread is about Richard White! It's not spam.

—Alorael, who still has most of his old locked topic collection. RWG has been treated as a sort of catharsis receptacle historically. Times have changed, thankfully, and the spammers had better watch themselves or they'll find their backs against the wall during the Second Coming of Richard White.

Ah, the needle/ferret, most deadly weapon in the history of assassination. Truly nothing can evade the needle/ferrets of RW's elite fanatic geneforged drugged cyborg mentat assassin teams.

Needle/ferrets are definitely superior to sharks with frickin' lasers on their heads.

DE-EDIT, or DEDIT: They are also ill-tempered and mutant.

I think they only became mutants recently, and ill tempered very shortly after that.

EDIT: Hey, can you restore the original version so that my reply makes even a bit of sense?

RE-EDIT: Thanks, that's great. And what about great Whites, though?

Why not? The assassination team has much to offer to qualified candidates.

I believe I have patched the breach in the space-time continuum. RWGs is no longer at risk of being sucked into the deep nothing.

Sure, the assassination teams can make a good pitch. But if I've learned anything from my time in this secret order, it's Never Volunteer.

Then you have failed the test. The answer is always volunteer, but choose what you volunteer for most carefully. Unless you're volunteering someone else, of course, in which case you should gleefully ignore anything and everything regarding the sub-organization in question.

It's actually a long learning process for them. They start with beans, work their way up to bean sprouts, and then they have their string beans. It takes a lot of training to safely handle string beans.

Maybe this is just the implants talking, but I've heard a rumor they're experimenting with superstring beans: six more directions from which to backstab!

Ah, these kids with their new-fangled ways, so much flashier than the old days. Why, I don't think I can recollect a time when the good old Five-Point String Bean Exploding Spleen technique hasn't sufficed.

This is at least your second warning for masked profanity. Don't post it.

On the other hand, it means that everything is going according to plan. Watch your beans. I mean back.

Alorael changes his name every day, actually. That doesn't justify masked profanity, and even though it was minor, Alo can edit your posts. On most forums anyway.

Which I didn't do and don't do unless the post really needs it. Masked profanity doesn't merit such heavy-handed treatment.

Needle/ferrets sound rather superfluous. Wouldn't an ordinary ferret's needle-sharp teeth suffice?

You're mistaken, Stugie. A ferret/needle would be redundant, because ferrets are already well equipped with needles, but a needle/ferret is a needle equipped with extra ferrets. It's truly a terrifying weapon.

—Alorael, who has also witnessed amazing feats of sewing savagery performed by the needle/ferret. Sure, your garment may be torn to shreds as fast as it's created, but wow! Both happen really fast!

In this instance the '/' is a phoneme. Probably needle\ferrets exist as well.
