(By the way, if none of this makes sense, lurk in alt.stupidity for a few months. It will then make even less sense.)

When I was stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, I'd lay in my bunk, read books, and drink Pepsi® from the vending machine downstairs. The soft drink was supplied in paper cups. When I'd finish, I'd twist the cup and shape its base so that--when turned over--it looked like a mushroom. Then I'd place it with the others on the windowsill behind my bunk. There was a field of mushrooms there.

Anyway, the clone at the lookout server in Denver had previously posted a message entitled "Lookout!" The body of the message was simply "Lookout!"
Later, Keylime followed up and called me an idiot for not warning him sooner that a book was about to fall on his head. (It took four hours for the message to reach him.) Me and my clones immediately started flaming each other by calling each other idiots--original subject forgotten. Kaj and a few other Stupidians jumped into the fray. Finally, (l)Laura or Tortess told all of us to shut up because we were making too much noise.
Or something like that.
Anyway, papa legba started the apology thingie after that.

Oh, sure. Haven't even beat me out for God yet, and you're already handing out political appointments. Pretty low for a deity wannabe. -papapraytome
Only in alt.stoopididity can a clone be a saint and damned at the same time.
The clone in Denver still reads the newsgroups but rarely posts due to tightened restrictions by his employers.
I still post from CI$ now and then.
A new clone, Wxwilki, has appeared on AOL. I have no clue as to what the Hell it's doing there.
