Why the Forums Crashed
« on: 25 January 2011, 23:49:22 »
Oh yeah, like I'm going to tell you the real reason. [tickedoff]


Of course I am!  See, what happened was Wombat found an expired can of inferno chili in the back of a refridgerator that we'd moved to the basement a couple years ago and left unplugged since then.  Well, I don't have to describe the results as you all know the forums have been reset.

Let's just say that Hellbie will need therapy, Worktroll lost his Fosters Can-Pyramid (which was 27 levels high BTW), ACHOO is still missing, Rage has a raging case of Chungalomeningitis and Randall has been dreaming about flying battleships.

That last one may or may not be accurate.  We're still waiting for Weirdo to get the fries out of his ears.

There is a reason the BattleCorps Legion bans the carrying of hand grenades, and inferno chili from being carried by its people.

It's not a pretty one.

It's also the reason why we had to leave all the Wombats behind on Alula Australis...the Inner Sphere was already have a major time of terror and mayhem, and well, letting Wombats loose then may have ended the universe as we knew it.... ;)

I noticed that too, and well...if Herb nuked the forums in celebration of his birthday, it was nothing more than a real-life Blackout.  Think about it, the man behind everything, the Guy In Control, suddenly disappears "for the good of the realmprofessionalizing his replies" and a short time later all communication ceases...just like our dear Devlin Stone did, and took the HPG net with him.

This is the Blackout, ladies and gentlemen.

I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair, And send him on his way. If a man don't understand you, If you fly on separate beams, Waste no time, make a change, Ride that man right off your range. Rub him out of the roll call And drum him out of your dreams. Oho! If you laugh at different comics, If you root for different teams, Waste no time, weep no more, Show him what the door is for. Rub him out of the roll call And drum him out of your dreams. You can't light a fire when the woods are wet, No! You can't make a butterfly strong. Hmm, hmm! You can't fix an egg when it ain't quite good. And you can't fix a man when he's wrong!
