Over at that other site they're trying to charge $175 for the honor of going to their meet/convention in Baltimore. :lol: :lol:

03-04-2006, 07:28:40
yeah, I know

I paid, I figure it is mostly for the 'banquet' and to fly Markos and Dan in

relying on impulsives like I double will fill their seats

I didn't think that was a bad price until I saw that accommodation wasn't included. :eek:

How come you guys didn't pay to fly me in for the New York meet? :(

Funko

We don't like you.

Fuck. That was a genuine 100-0. :(

Thank you, thank you. I feel so proud. I want to thank my parents, God and my boss for letting me post here.

Venom

Everyone be on the look out. 3 years after it was popular and 5 years after it was invented, Shitkiss has finally learned the 100-0 game.

Drekkus
03-04-2006, 14:11:36
I strike when people least expect it. The Drekkish Inquisition!!

And after 5 years, no one but funko knows the exact rules.

Venom
03-04-2006, 14:16:04
I know most of the rules. Especially the ones I invented.

If I really liked Civ4 and wanted to meet the Firaxis crew then I might be willing to spend a grand total of $20 but I don't like Civ4, don't give a shit about Firaxis, and don't want to meet Sid so I sure am not going to spend $175 plus air faire. That's just lame.

I get a lot of junk mail (erm, "information") about various industry Conferences, and the price of them even for one day never fails to astound me. $175 sounds steep (and it is) but it's only 90 and in British terms that's probably below par for the course for a day-and-a-half convention.

03-04-2006, 16:59:31
It would have been cheaper if they picked a real gamer convention and crashed it.

HelloKitty
03-04-2006, 17:05:02
175? Is Sid giving every attendee a hummer?


Jonh Mizzliner

You have a job!

If Sid is there you have to punch him in the face. If not him see if you can break the greek's nose with a headbutt!

Thats what I would feel was worth 175$

Send a message for CG. A message of BLOOD!



P.S. I am not joking. Hit one of those fuckers. Have someone videotape it as well.

Venom
03-04-2006, 17:26:05
Yeah, hit Sid, and tell him I said hi.

How about a Kancho for Brian?

Diss
03-04-2006, 21:35:15
I'd pay $5000 to get a hummer from Sid.

But the price isn't an issue for me. I have plenty of money.

time is more of a concern. I only get 1 week of vacation. I'm not sure I want to spend it with a bunch of civ geeks. no offense to present company of course. :D

Japher
03-04-2006, 22:26:42
wtf is civ?

It didn't take me long to get banned again.

This time I got banned for an argument with Spec (who was making sexist comments relying on stereotypes)...I responded likewise with stereotypes on Canadian provinces, where Quebecois are sissies, Albertans are rednecks, BCians are hippies, etc.

Ming took this as a "directed personal attack" against Spec (who said being gay was a "handicap", by the way), so issued me his usual MACHO-MACHO-MAN warning via PM. I told him it wasn't a directed personal attack, it was using stereotypes to prove a point. I then issued an apology in the thread to Spec anyway.

I go to dinner, come back, and I'm banned. I have no idea why, I can't read PMs without going to Options and enabling them...and I can't go into Options while banned.

Anyone who gives these assclowns $175 is quite simply retarded.

Asher, aren't you allowed to make fun of Canadian stereotypes? I mean, you are Canadian! If you cannot make fun of yourself, that's just sad beyond words.

So we are up to a punch in the face for Sid, a kancho for Brian Reynolds, and a ball tickle for MarkG.

I think the ball tickle needs to be changed to a grip and twist.

Venom
04-04-2006, 02:25:25
Diss wants a blow job from Sid. He didn't specify if it needed to be before or after the punch.

It isn't during the experiment...

and I would have loved to go to the NY meet, I would have gone if the experiment hadn't been acting up that weekend

I will probably still try to make it to England some time

JM

JM^3
04-04-2006, 02:50:40
and yes, I am sure that I was stupid agreeing to it

ah well, I would have spent that much in NY also (I know)

JM

Venom
04-04-2006, 02:58:31
Yeah, but you would have been hanging out with cooler people.

JM^3
04-04-2006, 03:10:46
oh, that is true

I bet a fair majority of the people at apolyton meet will be older, more boring people

but ah well...

JM

Diss
04-04-2006, 03:20:57
older people are not more boring dammit!!

JK, they are.

as I don't consider myself older. I'm still young dammit! :)

JM^3
04-04-2006, 03:22:46
The sad thing is that I don't really care about meeting the Firaxians or BHGers... I signed up because I was hoping that some of the people who I would like to meet (but am not likely to, because they are scattered everywhere) will be there.

I am hoping that some of them will be ther e (I had hoped Asher would be there because he does have money, but he seems to not be getting along with apolytoners right now), I mean grandpa troll is alright I guess, but I don't really care about meeting him (and he is one of the few people I see signed up for this).

JM

Diss
04-04-2006, 03:42:40
I think it might be interesting to meet him. He always posts funny pictures. I'm curious how he is in real life.

And I agree about the Firaxians. Computer programmers don't interest me that much. I prefer them to slave away long hours to produce me fun games. Not waste time talking to me.

JM^3
04-04-2006, 03:45:55
It actually looks like there is hardly no one going right now...

lol

What's a hattrick?

04-04-2006, 05:02:57

Soon. Very soon.

If someone knocked out all Sid's teeth, he could get a gummer.
