I've been accused of being a smartass before. My standard reply:

Just a quick bump of the thread, folks. Nice little reminder.

There's a lot to be said for style too.

Take GK for example. Many of the events he comments on aren't particularly sucky, but it's the way he tells the story that makes him the undisputed grand master of interplanetary SC stories.

(Really obscure movie reference there, respect and admiration from an obscure movie lover to whomever spots it.)

He probably wouldn't be as deified if he wrote "Drunk guy called the phone center, loud guy was on the skytrain, girl at 7-11 was dressed like a ho"

On the opposite end of the spectrum, someone may have dealt with some horrific gawd-awful piratemonkeyrobot hellbeast of an SC, but may not have the story-telling skills to properly express the horror...the horror...

Personally, I try to tell my SC run-ins comedically. If you aren't laughing at my suffering, what's the point of going through it.

A good reminder - am still a bit reluctant to speak of the current fun and games happening at the school-turning-circus that I currently are entertaining in...

I just read through this thread, I'll definitely avoid doing this, besides it takes a lot less effort to go to another thread than to post about how you disagree.

And in regards to the library guy linked to early on in the story, I'm surprised noone asked about him saying college is three years away and then having an interview with someone from Harvard when he would only be in grade 9 or 10.

Actually, I think I did ask him about that at some point, but he had some answer to supposedly explain it away.

I could have missed it if it was in the posts.

It might have been via PM.
It was a while ago and my memory is fuzzy.

That probably explains why I have no idea what's going on here
