Ned Raggett in "What Is Your Best Feature", telling jess "Your name is jess, not Kodanshi". That made me laugh long & hard.

-- Kodanshi (, November 15, 2001.

jess asks if he should grow a beard. ned posts his picture (yes *that* one) and says "can you imagine this with a beard?". mike says:

Ned I wish I could shave off that smug expression.

-- Billy Dods (, November 15, 2001.

Y'know, it's so lucky that all that didn't happen on 7/11. It would just be too weird and people wouldn't be able to stop smirking every time people said things like "Let's pray there's no repeat of 7/11" It would be a problem.

Mike Daddino on 9/11

His post reflecting on the day was a wonder of emotion. But I have to admit, the one where he simply confirmed he was in fact alive was the one that hit me the hardest.

The Sinker one in the election thread, either day one or day two, that said of Thatcher "she just trainwrecked middle England" (or "little England", I forget).

The Pinefox's response to me on the subject of Tory pioneers of rural internet use did more to bring out new levels of subtlety in my thinking than any other post we've ever had.

-- Robin Carmody (, November 16, 2001.

Remembered. It was "Olde England".

Serious Answer: Mike D. on 11 September.

Real Answer: This might've been on ILM but there was this post that Nick D. made, a kind of joke involving a little girl and ice-cream and it was wonderfully inexplicable, more so than anything Hanle y's come up with thus far. Well, the post of the year is Nick's "Sorry." that followed that post. (Sorry, I can't find the link.)

"they'd just say august eleventh."

Can that post count, even though this isn't technically ILE? Cause (a) August is the eighth month, and (b) that's my birthday.

-- Nitsuh (, November 20, 2001.

Oh, wait: the clear winner is Tim F's "Exactly my point" from this thread.

Runners-up include:

1. "Where did we bury the 19th century? I for one think it needs to be dug up and put on trial," from Pete;

2. "I love my prostate and testicles," "I have a large penis," "No but I would fuck W.," and "Never fuck a Mormon," all quite clearly from Anthony;

3. "I swear to God, I hadn't read the Lemony Snicket thread when I posted this, I just assumed it was about British candy and ignored it," from Fritz;

4. "I am something of a legend," from Hanle y;

5. "Just wait until you have to buy salamander tampons then," from Jess; plus

6. The hotpants/butt-cleavage thread where Tracer says "Suprisingly dud when squoze up so unnatural in those horrible pants," and then someone else says "Butt cleavage is a slippery slope," and then Tracer says, "Well, ideally." Tracer also gets points his excellent explanation of hash browns and his reaction to the British form of the word "braces": "so whaddyer call silver brackets onna teeth? oh you DON'T."

-- Nitsuh (, November 20, 2001.

Oh, and I'd hope we're all in a place where we can laugh over the fact that on August 14th, Nude Spock said:

"America deserves to be bombed to hell right now along with the rest of the westernized greedy cultures."

-- Nitsuh (, November 20, 2001.

Oh, wait, and Tom, too:

"Sarah just because you like something doesn't mean it isn't Emo."

Okay, so this and the "Exactly my point" are it. Definitively.

-- Nitsuh (, November 20, 2001.

And good God, here's me further down the thread:

Just focus on what I'm deeming the IL* Quote of the Year: "Just because you like something doesn't mean it's not emo."

Mitch - I have a very vague recollection of what you're talking about. It's bugging me now - can anyone else recall this wonderful post of mine? I thought for a minute you were talking about this one, but then I remembered that shit is not the same thing as ice cream.

-- Nick (, November 22, 2001.

Hey, Nitsuh, each new occurance seems to change people's views, but I'll stick by my original post. Western greedy cultures deserve to be bombed right to hell. Individual citizens don't deserve painful deaths, but corrupt systems need a spanking. It's the way the world is operating. America isn't innocent, simply because we were attacked. However, I wouldn't side with terrorists who bomb the "Evil Empire". I won't be surprised if we truly have a new world order in a hundred years or so. How do you really know this isn't all part of a larger plan, anyway. If you look into the history of the middle east, the history of a few American presidents, it's pretty easy to see that there's strategic manipulation going on and America doesn't seem too scared of the outcome.

-- Nude Spock (, November 27, 2001.

That does not mean I endorse bombing the U.S. in any way. Don't read that into it. I'm all for a better solution, but it's like if a husband gets caught cheating on his wife: don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
