0122: "Quirky Girls"

Postby Shoofle » Fri Jun 30, 2006 4:36 am UTC

Ah, I love the smell of breaking the rules of society in conformance with the rules of breaking the rules of society. I mean hate. It's a complicated relationship.

Quirky girls are better on paper, I'd say. One of the usual "quirks" is that they cry after we snog. While that may be endearing to some, I'll just stick to the normally insane women. They are at least predictably crazy. :D


Oh and hey. First post ^^ Hi.

I envy my friend... he turned a completely normal and functioning girl into a geek in under 2 years. Now she's hardcore into playing RPG video games and even has learned the ins and outs of the D-20 system. It's great having a girlfriend who can understand all your obscure references.

I think cults are illegal, especially ones that turn people from normal, functioning members of society into mindless drones, listening to false 'prophets' as they attempt to guide people through a world they claimed to have created.

Especially.

Hmmm, has he considered an apprenticeship program or at least a lecture series? That's the kind of brainwashing I can get behind.

Or can he at least explain his methods?

Easier that than the other way around, anyway.

Good job of thread necromancy there.

Also, what was the then current XKCD strip when this was first posted?

Thread Necromancers, one of the less useful classes in Diablo 2.
