Boo.

Oh well, PHP probably isn't a real ant species anyway, it's like parts of 3 different species of ant all grafted together in some back-alley amateur biology lab, except one of those ants was actually a beetle.

From the English band no doubt. I gather those dudes got up to quite the hijinx, what's adding in some ant grafting.

Our, our. This really is terribly untidy isn't it.

The forum is so full of life. We must put an end to it.

But Azræl is involved. We can't disobey him.

Perhaps he does not need to find out our plans?

In Soviet Internet, pinkmagenta group chooses you.

So does that mean I'm one of The Chosen? Sounds pretty zebra.

They have done something to us.

They have tried to make us like them.

It will not work.

They are alive.

We are not.

We will not become like life.

I think this Madness is going to be pretty tough to follow for those of us not familiar with Discworld. Not that I'm complaing, it's normally pretty hard to follow. And fun.

Oh, it all makes sense now. They made waldo into a flying space carpet, so they can spread the whoovian word throughout the galaxy, with magenta pi as the voice of reason to keep everything calm in case people overreact. Gotcha.

That's the trouble with mortals.

You give them one taste of power and they almost destroy reality.

You'd think SecondTalonthey would have learnt by now.

We don't want another reality reset like that.

So much paperwork.

We're already worked to our limits filing for every chemical reaction keeping them alive.

They're always so ungrateful.

It's very illogical.

ook.

*glares*

*disappears*

*is replaced*

It seems we're becoming affected by all this messiness.

No, but reading Discworld, the series by the late great Terry Pratchett, will.

You just may not notice that until it's too late.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Lower Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. That is an average of a trifle over one mile and a third per year. Therefore, any calm person, who is not blind or idiotic, can see that in the Old Oolitic Silurian Period, just a million years ago next November, the Lower Mississippi River was upwards of one million three hundred thousand miles long, and stuck out over the Gulf of Mexico like a fishing-rod. And by the same token any person can see that seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Lower Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long, and Cairo and New Orleans will have joined their streets together, and be plodding comfortably along under a single mayor and a mutual board of aldermen. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

Yep. Anyone without a title gets modified "Boom de Yada" lyrics instead. It was based on the Furious Doodling last year when everybody's title was "I love Bananas" for a while.
