I've read your post several times but can't make heads or tails of it. Mind clarifying?

Ah. I think I understand now.

The problem with that is, would I have blocked you if you hadn't posted and brought the topic to the top of the New Posts search results page?

By my reckoning, yes, you tend to go around that time in the day and post, and that's the reason I small collected.

If it wasn't for you, my score would be a lot higher, so you should feel bad about it (or, er, good about it.)

No, like as in a simile.

Feel Goods are to Gremlins as Feeling Bad is to Eating After Midnight.

It is a metaphor for taking perverse pleasure in denying someone else internet points, but a small (tiny, itty-bitty) part of you believes that maybe you should feel bad about the sheer amount of perverse pleasure you are feeling over imaginary points.

Oh, then I just don't get it.

But that's probably because I feel perverse pleasure about feeling perverse pleasure. So I enter in a cycle of perverse pleasure without guilt once perverse pleasure kicks off.

It is actually something my older brother used to say when someone teased him.

(Yes, I had gotten it, I just like how the term perverse pleasure sounds and wanted to repeat it over and over, because doing it causes me perverse pleasure.)

I find perverse pleasure in your perversely pleasuring yourself while thinking of my perverse pleasure.

I don't feel any guilt at this perverse recursion.

I definitively find that awkward. You make my feel goods feel bad when you feel goods when I feel goods.

YES!

I tell a fool that 1 minute is worth 1 point, so 100 points is worth 100 minutes.
Value of Points Collected = 4 points = 4 minutes = 1/15 hours = 1/360 days = 1/131400 years = 0 chimes = 0 cuckoo

Hurray! My first triple post!

I tell a fool that 1 minute is worth 1 point, so 100 points is worth 100 minutes.
Value of Points Collected = 580 points = 580 minutes = 9+2/3 hours = 29/72 days = 29/26280 years = 0 chimes = 0 cuckoo

Nope, Whizbang brought up perverse pleasures.

But now that you mention it, I don't really want to know about the perverse pleasures of other people. Blocking me from double posting gives you perverse pleasures? Fine, just, keep that info to yourself.

Also: Triple posting is not effective in this thread, as only the last 2 posts of the thread count, the post in the middle blocks what the first post and third post could have collected together (which could be major, i.e. you collect 3 hours twice instead of 6 hours.)

I am posting now because I accidentally stayed up to late and am hoping that no one is awake.

I tell a fool that 1 minute is worth 1 point, so 100 points is worth 100 minutes.
Value of Points Collected = 580 points = 580 minutes = 9+2/3 hours = 29/72 days = 29/26280 years = 0 chimes = 0 cuckoos

Sorry in advance. It is late here. I probably made a bunch of errors here.

Lets say that Mr. Guy post at 12:00 and Mr. Thief will wake up and post at 7:00. Of course, Mr. Guy does not know that. It is now 4:00. Mr. Guy has 2 options.

1:Post now for some points and then post again at 8:00 for some more points.
Result: Mr. Guy gets a small amount of points, but Mr. Thief stopped him from getting more at 8:00.

2:Wait until 8:00 and then post for MASSIVE amounts of points.
Result: Mr. Thief stops Mr. Guy from getting any points.

Gambling 101: Big risks equals big reward: small risk equals small reward.
Gambling 102: Deciding to take the safer, but less profitable bets is as valid a strategy as taking large, risky bets.

In this game, the longer you wait the more the risk increases. Therefor, triple posting can be a good idea.

I tell a fool that 1 minute is worth 1 point, so 100 points is worth 100 minutes.
Value of Points Collected = 1309 points = 1309 minutes = 21+49/60 hours = 1309/1440 days = 1309/525600 years = 0 chimes = 0 cuckoos
