Hear ye, hear ye!

The Order of Pie is calling together its members and fans to vote on who shall be the leader! At this hour, we have but two nominees; go to;topicseen to nominate more (or just post in this thread)! Vote for who you think shall lead OOP with the most dignity and honour, who shall promote the name of pie until the very skies are filled with it! But be warned: the consequences of a non-pie-lover voting on this thread are terrible–so terrible, in fact, that to put it in words would inflict such pain of mind that I will refrain from doing so (as of now). Heed my warning, cake-loving heretics. Heed it, or suffer.

With Dignity, Honour, and in the Name of Pie,

Post Script: to see the origin of this glorious battle, go to:

Everything Else / West Side Story: Sharks vs. Jets
« on: June 09, 2009, 11:13:37 PM »
Soo…West Side Story is a pretty famous musical (and also my favorite!). For those of you who have watched it, listened to it, read it (?), or otherwise heard about it: which would you rather be, a Shark or a Jet?

Personally, I'd rather be a Jet. My reasons are kind of pathetic and shallow, but…I just think it'd be more fun.

Is there any way to mark a topic so you no longer get notifications when a new reply is posted?

Books / Patrick Rothfuss
« on: June 02, 2009, 12:35:31 AM »
Many of us are aware of the up-and-coming master author, Patrick Rothfuss. His debut novel was The Name of the Wind, which was an immediate hit. On the website, TNotW is actually listed as the 3rd best fantasy book (I'm assuming) in the world.

I, myself, am very interested about Mr. Rothfuss's thoughts concerning his novel; it's not quite like anything else I've ever read–perhaps that is part of what makes it so incredible. Anyway, I found this youtube link to an interview with him and thought it was pretty interesting, so:

[NB: This thread is for anyone who wants to comment/discuss the video, any ideas expressed in it, Mr. Rothfuss's writing, TNotW, or anything else along those lines.]

Per miyabi's suggestion, here is a thread for those who talk using old l337 $p34|{ [leet speak]. This is NOT a thread ONLY for l337 speakers, but is for learning how to speak/use/type in l337. Please show some r3$p3(7 [respect] and do not criticize for mistakes…this is a new thing for many of us (including me).

I'll start:

Everything Else / CHUCK NORRIS!!!!
« on: March 11, 2009, 12:07:48 AM »
Today is Chuck Norris's 69th Birthday!!!!!!! This thread is for all those who would like to share Chuck Norris stories/jokes/quips/etc. or other *stuff* about him. I will start:

"Once, Chuck Norris took a trip to the Virgin Islands. When he came back, they were only called 'the Islands.'"

"When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn't lifting himself up–he's pushing the earth down."

"Chuck Norris doesn't read; he stares the book down 'til it gives up its information."

"Chuck Norris doesn't wear a watch; he decides what time it is."

"There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live."

"Giraffes were created when Chuck Norris uppercutted a horse."

"Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because he only recognizes the element of surprise."

"There's no chin behind Chuck Norris's beard, only another fist." (–Mike Huckabee)

"Chuck Norris doesn't endorse; he tells America how it's gonna be." (–Mike Huckabee)

"Jesus walks on water. God walks on Jesus. Chuck Norris beats the **** out of both of them."

Everything Else / Travels!
« on: January 12, 2009, 02:31:30 AM »
I was looking through the various topics of TWG, and I realized there is nowhere for people to talk about traveling. So this thread is for talking about travel experiences.

Feel free to post any little anecdotes you want or something.

Movies and TV / Best Adam Sandler Movie

All of us know of the great Adam Sandler. He has been a part of so many hysterical movies that I don't have time to list them all. But out of the above-listed five, which one did you (or would you) most enjoy seeing?

Everything Else / Best Fighters

The difference in how power is accessed through the different systems makes things complicated…but assuming the Allomancres/Feruchemists had large-ish supplies of 'fuel'…how would it go?

Books / Latest Pendragon Book: "Raven Rise"
« on: January 02, 2009, 03:18:02 AM »
I hope I am not alone in saying that the ending of "Raven Rise" made the entire book almost completely pointless. So they almost beat the bad guys, they almost save the world, but in the end…they fail and they all get killed. !!! I mean, come on. It's obvious. You say there's going to be at least ten books. Then you kill all the good guys in the ninth. Of course they're going to come back to life! If they didn't, who else is gonna destroy Saint Dane? Dewey? So everyone's all fine and dandy.

In all the other books in the series, in each one, something important happens. A Territory is saved. A Territory is lost. A Traveler dies. Bobby learns more of the truth about the Travelers. But in "Raven Rise"…none of that. They fail to save the Territory, but they don't die (well, they do, but only for like five minutes). So what's the point? To show how evil and amazingly cruel Saint Dane is? Believe me, that point has been stressed enough in the other eight books. Yeah, yeah, the good guys learned a lesson, but come on. Was it really worth an entire book??

Any other opinions?

(Oh, by the way, I'm not saying the series is bad. Far from it. The first eight books I have truly enjoyed reading–they're funny, captivating, fairly well-written stories. The ninth one just wasn't up to par to me.)
