I think you are going to be one disapointed little guy when he comes back.


I think he's going to come back with a vengeance.

BET:
If you catch me* on the fora** any time before 2013-02-10 (2013, February 10)***, then I will pay for your next ConquerClub premium membership. If you take this bet, yet I fail to appear on the fora, then you must pay for my premium membership (which expires on 2013-02-09 22:29:54). You need to renew it for me--to be very clear.

FINE-LINES:
*This only includes posting. This does not include lurking because there's no way I can verify if a photoshopped photo of "Users browsing this forum: BEEBS" was photoshooped.

**The fora include GD, this place, and any other subforum and subsubforum and whatever other forum. To be clear, the only exceptions are my clan forum, the PM system, and the Walls.

***The bet becomes effective 24 hours from the time of this post. I'll just revisit this when the bet expires to see who took the bet.

Since there was no explicit demand for a BBS post, why was there a supply?

yep, he screwed up. he really should have specified this only applies to the discussion forums in the first place.

I wonder if the greater lesson to be learned from this is that no matter how ready you think you are to launch a venture you should always get a lawyer to read the small print.

He also pointed out that any whatever forum counted, too:

I don't think he had forgotten that he included tournaments when making the deal, but either forgot about the bet or that he was being generous.

The tournaments thing is interesting, and makes me think that he was being generous.

He posted his intention to join the tournament, but then never did join the tournament. That alone makes it out of the ordinary. Not a super-rare event, it does happen, but it's still something with a below-average frequency. And tournaments? Everyone knows that as part of my official duties I'm always prowling the tournament fora, looking for interesting facts to report on.

Makes me wonder.

Hate to break it to ya but you're not that special, Dukasaur. When writing a contract, I now realized the importance of adding vague language. That post was clan-related to reserve a spot for a Memento Mori, but my rules are my rules, and they are pretty clear.

I'll have to give my lawyer a call; his people will call your people shortly.

I thought about that, but what's the point?

After taking a break from this site, I'll likely post much less. This place, like many others, is stuck in the realm of opinion--even when low standards of evidence and 'facts' are presented. And unlike some, I'm not one for rhetoric--which is clearly super-effective (e.g. the recent presidential election, that recent shooting and another round of Gun Control debates between the two dumb sides: 'liberal' and conservative or Democrat v. Republican), nor am I in favor of entertaining anti-intellectuals like that nationalist farmer, the self-imagined academic/teacher, Batman Boy, and the English Sissy Tart.

Of course, one need not be an intellectual to be worthy of entertaining, but the person who (un)intentionally distorts information and only produces cyber poo isn't doing anyone any favors. They are sad, sad people with apparently very low opportunity costs. My pseudo-psychoanalysis indicates that they all suffer from low self-esteem, but if it's any consolation, they all have the capability to kill themselves or accidentally get themselves killed, which on net may be beneficial.

Instead, I'd rather spend more time reading and writing books and articles. Occasionally, I'll put this realm of opinion to good use.
