Re: Honor Societies

Technically the group's name is Not a tautology, because some people could have joined then dropped... actually, if some people leave the group in the process, it is possible that while 1m have joined, there are not 1m people in the group.

Re: "The Race: Part 3" Discussion

I really don't see any humor at all in this entire series. It's like, hey guys! I've seen Firefly too! This is so cool! How about some original material? Going to throw in my vote with these two.
