When you barf beer may none of it go out your nose.  Actually you can guarantee that Quicksilver.  Simply jam a tampon up each nostril before you go out drinking.  You can scotch tape the strings onto your cheeks so they don't dangle down into your mug of beer.

Imagine doing that while playing a 360.  I wouldn't be surprised if he already did that playing reach or black ops.

He's still hungover from his last birthday celebration; that's why we haven't seen him for a while.

I heard he got his foot caught in a trap and he is still chewing his leg off.

Hey everyone!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!  It's been a while since I've visited the forums--it's good to see that the old gang is still around.  How have your respective holiday seasons been so far?

Since I last talked to you, I graduated from UIUC with a BSEE (electrical engineering), and am currently working for General Dynamics out on the east coast.  Although I still have my trusty MacBook Pro, I've got a great gaming PC that I use in conjunction with Steam when I feel the need for an adventure.

How has 2010 treated you?

You frakin' showoff!  Why can't you be like the rest of us losers?  I'm still retired and loving it.  I finally got an intel Mac in the last couple weeks and I'm trying to catch up on some of the gaming I missed with my PowerPC.  Got Steam this week and the Orange Box so I'm happily munching away on that.

Your chest is too wimpy to support a double pocket protector.

So wimpy that I've never been able to wear even one. I guess that explains "it."

I thought "it" was because you wanted your nipples to show through your shirt.

I would imagine it was to collect taxes and bribes from the Hardware Editors.  To stroll amongst them as a god, deciding who lives and who dies with the point of a bony finger.  To gauge fealty and destroy those without; along with the weak, the sick, and the lame.  To test 9 volt batteries with the tip of his tongue and to try to make a robot booth babe.  But it was probably just to run finking to Tuncer when anybody misspelled a word.
