    I would have to learn an entirely new programming language, and become proficient enough in it that it could be used on a large scale without causing performance, or stability issues, while working in dozens of unforeseeable scenarios. Xenforo is a mish-mash of languages, protocols, and formats, all working together to create a cohesive framework that doesn't collapse under the strain of an entire community of users with different hardware and software interfaces. Normally, I'd take up that kind of major challenge, but I'm not 16 anymore, and I don't have the time to do that.

    TL;DR - Hard.

    It's one of those obscure laws that most people don't know about. Like, technically, in Iowa it's illegal to wear a blue bathrobe while posting. And in Delaware you're not allowed to create a thread criticizing the current President from atop an ostrich.

    What the fuck is going on? It's fucking 1 am real time, what are you eaart coast a-holes doing up? I'm only here so I won't get fined. Actually nah, I decided to get a little snack, so I came out here to slice up some salami. However I have gotten myself into a Möbius. I'm currently in my third loop. I've got half a beer and no salami. I could go to the fridge, get the salami, cheese and pickles out, which sounds delicious as I type, but I am too smart for that. Because history has taught me that half way to making my salami, cheese and pickle plate, I will finish my beer, get thirsty and so get another beer. But then I'll drink half a beer by the time I finish my salami, cheese and pickles.

    And so here I am. Trapped not by the baby-gate b/c I'm a grown ass man so even when the fucker won't open I can shimmy over the counter and escape, but no, trapped by time itself. A loop from which there IS no escape! It's been almost an hour now, but Anne has already had sex with me so it's not like I NEED to go to bed. Maybe I should just surrender to the loop and see where time takes me....

    I was pretty close to naming my son Krampus. Instead he's named after a girl.
