This theory is implausable. Wierdo would not drink Fosters.

I know.  That's why the Fosters was Worktrolls, like I said.  And I didn't bait Wombat with pictures of Inferno Chili.  I bait her with supposedly naked pictures of Herb's cats.

If you'd have installed proper drains installed under your helmet and worn bomb-proof hairspray; that never would have happened...most likely.

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 suspect not - the Herb we know and love would probably nuke the hardware the forums were on, not the software  [rockon]



still, it could make for a nice (but untrue) story?
  Dude, they (birthday) partied so hard the forums melted and we had to get new ones  [cheers]

Sorry, wrong W. I could have said, and should have said, NO ONE would drink Fosters. :D

I don't care if it's nukes, flatulance, flooding or Justin BieberJersey Shore fire related, this disaster has strangely turned into the impetus I need to start posting again.

Yay disaster! :D

well, there goes my battletech funds.  Guess i'll have to use them to buy a EMP sheild before Herbs next birthday.   Or does Blue Sheild and Reflec prevent his nuke attacks on the system?

Just don't give Wombat something to actually post about, keep out of Wombat's pouch of infinite holding, don't stand behind Wombat after Wombat eats a nuke or something.................I think I should just shut up now. Safer that way.
It's OK to disagree with me......I can't force you to be right.

If you are waiting for me to go out of my mind you will have to wait. The exits are not clearly marked.
