You're giving me flashbacks from The Great Assening in the Fleeting Thoughts thread.

You weren't there, man, you don't know what it was like...

Spoiler:
This is what it was like

Just page after page after page of ass *rocks back and forth*
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

It's time for 9/11 (That USA thing that happened).

Here's an OTTification to kick it off. (It's close to being an ITTification, so yeah.)

Chridd, I'm not so sure.

I mean, smart phones have taken off and are successful but "regular phone" still means non-smart phone.

1267 even worse:

I know your room is usually much nicer. I'm sorry I had to see it like this. I'm not judging you for it.


This one is more fun. And also much more mean. That said, it only works if you can meet the unreasonably high standards you're holding them to.

And, 1267+650:

Sure I could judge other people for being messy, but why would I do that when I could think about dinosaurs?

Oh it also references http://xkcd.com/1031/ too.

Ah. I'd forgotten what was the cause of the TED banning.

But it wasn't definitive, just weird looking. Eh, I'll throw out another ). (Now that looks weird.)

Unmatched right parentheses are worse. They're harder to fix. So, stop that!

You (have to add a left one to the end of your post in anticipation!()

OK, I'm adding four left-parentheses to my most recent previous post, on the previous page, to fix eviloatmeal's two posts above this one.

Done.
