Microbadge: If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking
I type http://boardgamegeek.com and get this:

From gallery of HuginnGreiling


After searching for, say, Napoleon's Triumph, I get this:

From gallery of HuginnGreiling


I can click on the link at the top to get to the real BGG.

Is this some sort of sick joke?

Bastard motherfucker piece-of-shits.

Forgot what day it is. Didn't help that they upped the "new" site 5 minutes too early.

Gave me a fucking heart attack, what with all the talk of the redesign lately.

I'll go back to having a life now.

Wait a minute...

I'm gonna officially give BGG a big one-fingered salute for making me watch Twilight without knowing it.

'Cos nobody says it quite like Johnny.


But in all fairness, it's a fair cop.

Lol.. It's 2:41 am, Working nights, I rarely think of what day it is, because after 5 years working the night shift, I still have trouble wrapping my head around the time, go to work on the 31st, and it's the 1st in a few hours. Usually for me, the "next day" doesn't start until I leave the office.

So when i saw the new screen I thought I had mistyped something, then I saw the link and just figured it was some awful redesign to mimic google. Then i saw this message, i was clueless about the day. Lol

If I had to guess I'd say you're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind, a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination — Next stop, Geekdo.

See I have this terrible habit of not paying attention to who comments or posts messages, so I am really oblivious to most other users, even admins. =)

You can still access it here:

Although I don't know if the microbadges and whatnot will still be awarded for certain searches.
