Important new WAR info!!

Everybody go to the post that started it all.  The first post of the WAR intro thread.  Read the bold, underlined, italicized stuff.  That stuff is from Kirk.

So after you read that, everybody go give some special thanks to Kirk and  Dennis for their contribution, and to the mighty Richard Thomas for throwing in the good word on our behalf.

I love how none of us (except Dakota) mention getting discounted classes or free memberships or gift cards, but we're all "I'll cut you for a fucking mug." That just tickles me.

Also, Avery; good luck in the first round and all, but I'll cut you for that fucking mug. Atomic innuendo be damned.

Money doesn't matter, I would only use that Amazon gift card to challenge Richard again.
And I probably still couldn't afford a class at this time.

I just want to feel important during my six pots of coffee a day.

Mugs are cool. They raise the stakes and make WAR personal. Thanks LR team. We know how much you guys like to see blood shed.

Is that...does that qualify as smack talk?  Judges?  I know the first part of it had some smack, with the destruction and how we're going down.  But then it got...I just don't know if that last was smack talk.

I didn't realize you wanted out of this tournament that quickly.

don't understand the point in seeding, it seems like you paired one obvious winner v. one obvious loser

Well, it's based on the NCAA brackets. I guess it's trying to set up the best battles down the road, anticipating that the "best" teams/writers are in the finals for the most intense competition. BUT, of course, anybody can take anybody down at any time. Be a giant slayer. And the coolest thing, I think, is the blind voting. So you aren't voting for a person but a story. I think it really could be anybody.

@Utah--I once had a business card that said Necrophiliac for hire. It was a joke, my friend made them for me after I wrote an article for our school magazine about necrophilia. Someone really did break into a mortuary in my town and have sex with a corpse.
