Anyone but Foman. He smells like cheese.

I'll admit, there is something exhilarating about entering a fresh new thread and seeing zero replies and a big fat softball of a joke just waiting to be knocked out of the park.

No feeling can compare to being "in the zone" and charging at that huge zero-reply hole like Barry Sanders, knowing that if you can just type your one-liner fast enough and hit the "submit" button before your competitors who are trying to do the same thing, you just might live on in infamy as the person who derailed a thread so effectively that it becomes a Bungie.net legend!

This is especially so considering how often this magnificent feat is attempted. Indeed, some users devote a substantial portion of their entire Bungie.net existence to attempting to be the humorous one-liner first reply of a legendary thread. And skilled though some of these users may be, sometimes they simply fail to be in the right place at the right time, like a female gymnast who peaks in a non-Olympic year.

No, legendary first replies require the same elusive combination of talent, luck, and experience as a Pulitzer-prize winning photograph. They cannot be engineered. They cannot be manufactured. But when your moment comes, you must be ready for it.

Will you be?

No.

I have yet to find that moment present itself to me. But I'm sure my time will come.


And simply by posting this, I'm probably defeating the purpose of this thread.

I always do.

I didn't think Ninjas were allowed to make threads?

PS: I hated reading your OP. It made me cringe. I despise forced writing.

If I am not posting, then I am reading what you might have posted.

I never attempted to be funny at any given point... but maybe one day.

Case and point: don't worry about it. Girls start getting boobies pretty soon, and then you'll have plenty of other things to think about. Being an Inheritor is not a life goal.

charging at that huge zero-reply hole

I couldn't stop giggling at this. Reminds me of some mothers I know.

@spaboolly

Sometimes I do this in private groups, but on the mains I find it more entertaining to simply lurk and see what others come up with.

However, you may have inspired me to seize that golden opportunity if it ever arises in the future.

I don't,I sometimes add my sense of humor here and there but I would not want to be the first in case the "joke" or comment is misunderstood or not comprehensible at all and then it just gets awkward...

This thread would have been great with a witty first reply. You killed it dmg.

In a time long past, the armies of the dark came again to the lands of men. Their leaders became known as the fallen lords, and their terrible sorcery was without equal in the west.
In 30 years they reduced the civilized nations into carrion and ash. Until the free city of Madrigal alone defined them. An army gathered there, and a desperate battle was joined against the fallen
Heros were born in the fire and bloodshed of the wars which followed and their names and deeds will never be forgotten

Well, it sure isn't as bad as being the 24th post in a thread.
