I... Am... Back.....!

Postby Bing on Tue Feb 27, 2001 3:07 am

Things are so slow and unreliable as to be <I><B>physically painful</B></I>. I have to dial up <I>half a dozen</I> numbers a dozen times to get a connection, and a slow one at that, but at least I now have a modem I can use. If I ever catch anyone calling a 56k modem "fast" or "reliable" I will suck their heart out through a straw... and enjoy it.<P>BUT at least there are new strips! Up today (Wednesday)!<P>And Sieshirou: screw you. :b

I think the proper term is now "economically underdeveloped countries", since we don't want to sound imperialist and imply that everything else is also underdeveloped. Of course, with our superior sense of capitalistic decadance we can (and do) impose our crummy pop music, bad action flicks and plastic fast food on them.<P>Then again, I'm Chinese (Taiwanese. Same difference. EEthnically Chinese, if you insist), so it's all OK as long as <I>I</I> make <I>my</I> bucks at the end of the day (yes, Imperial China has a well developed sense of decadance well before everyone else. I'm so proud).<P>Back in the studio: Seishirou: I was just making sure I didn't go too long without insulting you. 'Tis the way things are.<P>Do the GA poll! I actually have a story idea, but it may mean that a few of the loose ends I left before are not tied up, or not tied up very soon (e.g. Where did John get to? I have no idea). Tell me what you think. You can always leave a message here, too, of course.<P>

Fair enough.<P>I'll still suck their hearts through a straw, though. It's the principle that counts.<P>And that also reminds me: I'll add my ISPs to my list of heart-straw-sucking targets. And my telecoms provider.<P>Boy, that's gonna be a helluvalot of calestrol. Better begin my diet. No wonder Vampires are so picky about their prey.

...they probably don't but they pretend that they do, so I guess you can alway suck on their artificial heart.
