Scholastica's avatar is screwing with my head.

Despite the fact that Firefox doesn't display broken/unloaded images that way. Which browser does, by the way?

Netscape did, I believe. Some version of IE might, but I've never spent much time with it.

IIRC, IE's broken-image placeholder was usually a little red box with an "X" on it.

I wish I were smart enough for politics. Then in the freaky chance that I were to become President of the United States I would hold a televised press conference and say only two words: The Game

You don't need to be smart. Look at Lincoln.

I initially read that as "Or Ponicalica!" It didn't make much sense that way.

I so would've voted for Pigasus if I'd been around in 1968.

That's because we have too many people for everybody to actually know about each other.

We-ell, one needn't be acquainted with those with whom one diverts oneself. What about writing games? Word games? Puzzle games?

too much thinking, would you say?

That's exactly what I'd say.

The games that require you to think things up are usually the least popular.

You can't even write racist abuse in excrement on somebody's car without the politically correct brigade jumping down your throat!

Like mine or Tofu's (it gets good a few pages in)? That's where Cliché's Forum Games Evolution Principle comes in - the games that stay at the top are those that go fast, and fast games are those that require less thought.

I think I'll pass on being President. Have you seen Bush at the beginning and end of his term, or even Obama in 2007 and now?
