He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

Now I'm used to seeing ads around these here internets. But these new 'rotating blurbs' are just plain ridiculous. JohnnyJoe4624626 supports BGG because Aldie saved his beloved pet pigeons life?? Flah, stuff and nonsense I say! Ridiculous! Its high time someone set things straight. And judging by the blurbs I'm seeing, its gonna have to be me.

And please note this list is entirely serious and not in any way a joke. Definitely get all offended about it. Right now. For serious.

Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.

Oh? And then what? Do you brush your teeth? Maybe check twitter? Make sure your dog/cat/rhino still has a pulse? Psssh, your day is boring and of no interest to me!

Sir, I believe someone has stolen some of the letters from your username and replaced them with numbers that slightly resemble those letters. Clearly someone has pulled a prank on you, since no sane person would do this.

I assume you chose to remain anonymous so you don't have to explain to anyone what a 'country mile' is and how exactly it differs from a regular mile.
