    Sept. 26, 2013 - Lanzman publicly announces he has transferred control of Wordforge to Ancalagon, who is part of a new ownership group consisting of himself, evenflow, gul & Tex. Ancalagon announces he will serve a 1-year term as "superowner," holding a 2 - vote tiebreaking majority in any joint ownership group decision.

    The actual date Lanz gave up control may have preceeded the public announcement, but without more specifics from the involved parties, I will assume the date of the public announcement was Day 1 of Ancalagon's hilariously disastrous reign of incompetence. Who will follow him as the next "superowner" has not been revealed.

    Sept. 26, 2014.

    198 days.

    I agree, more derp. And under the new rules, as the thread starter, I can then request the thread be split and duplicated. This thread will reproduce! :soma:

    Forbin, do you kiss your wife with that mouth? DERAILING IS WORSE THAN SWEARING.

    Ancagalagagackacock would like it if you would, instead of derailing threads, simply discuss something that is of interest to you both: transportation issues.

    Maybe you guys can get together, have some beers, and solve problems in your heads.

    I declare all mass transit posts to be derp.

    Same with any Seattle-wank posts, too. :bailey:

    Your rebellion, center.

    All your posts will be moved to a special trash holding cell.

    To get there, I need you to hop on the light rail in downtown Minneapolis toward MSP, where you will take a bus connection to the Greyhound station.

    From there, I need you to head to Chicago where you will board an Amtrak train westbound to Seattle.

    From there, you can just ask anyone how to get to special trash holding cell. Everyone here will know exactly what you're talking about and be able to give you the most efficient, public pleasing way to get there using our wonderful mass transit system which effectively serves us all day long.

    Don't worry, if he carries it on to the bitter end, I have a fool-proof plan to troll the shit out of him for forcing us to endure this counting.

    Hey, that's math in the Red Room!
