Final Countdown

You still have about 16:27 left until the deadline.

(That's approximately sixteen (16) hours and twenty-seven (27) minutes. Hopefully that is clear enough for everyone to understand, and posting it here makes it accessible to the effort-impaired.)

I find it really confusing.

In fact, I think I need you to:

1. Write my entry for me;

2. Buy me a computer;

3. Post the entry for me.

Because I am that fucking special ...

Anyone who can't write a story in in time for the deadline doesn't understand the mathematics of productivity.

ZING!

:lol: :dance:

Seriously — Kevin should give this one a shot! Not only could he easily write three entries in the time left, but one of them would probably win.

Nope, too late, by 14 minutes...

Current UTC (or GMT/Zulu)-time used: Tuesday, 1 March 2011, 00:13:43

(I'll check the mail & PMs again in a little while to see if there were any more submissions, but this is probably it.)

Now what happens? I wish someone would post some rules or something around here so a fellow would know what to expect...

I don't know. I figured that Talos would just send them down the Memory Hole and that would be that.

Talos is currently refitting himself with some buzzsaw and blenderizer attachments.

A DAY OF RECKONING IS COMING...

:lol:


Read the entries, D, choose which you like best and be patient for a week or so. ;)

It takes practically no effort whatsoever!

What, the logging in or the spelling shitefully? :P

(I've logged in here and over on T(A)U using it quite a bit now. If you see me lurking but not posting anything, that's probably why. I got a dock-keyboard thingy with it, but haven't used it yet.)

I get the feeling SR wants to wring my neck when I get lazy and neglect to proof whatever my iPad makes me type.

Just say you're posting from your phone. That one seems to have gained some currency. :P

you should see some of the text-messages I send; it takes four or five just
to get to the point of what I was texting you about ... somewhere along the way,
my thumbs picked up the rhythm; I am a goddamn amazingly fast typist, and
once I got a handle on the way the buttons were laid out, I really got good ...

I'd like to wring your neck, but I seriously doubt I could get both hands around it ...

Get both hands around it? Fuck. You couldn't reach it little man!

or having someone hold the barstool steady while I climbed up there ...

To be honest, i've been looking for an excuse to use that smiley. :oops:

Talos functioned as well as anyone, moronic arrogance coupled with willfull stupidity is never an easy thing to deal with.

I just had a thought, you don't think the whole thing could've been performed as a parody of kja do you? F*n brilliant if it was but they should've let someone know they were going to exceed the contest parameters.
