Quote from: Terms of Use by Chipster-roo on  
TERMS OF USE
It looks like you're trying to create an account on this website.  You clearly have too much time on your hands, but in the end it's your time, your decision.  We're not going to stop you.

However, before you create an account, you must agree to the following terms of use.  If you don't agree, you can't visit this site.  Also, since most of you have a tendency to just click "I agree" without even bothering to read the agreement, we will crash your computer if you attempt to switch to a different tab or window.  Also, we are spying on you using your webcam; if you try to leave your computer, we will delete all your files.

---
ARTICLE 1: PERSONAL INFORMATION
In the registration form, you will be asked to enter a certain amount of personal information.  It is your obligation to complete all fields, and always answer truthfully.  We will compare the information you entered with government records to make sure you didn't lie.

All information you give us, either willingly (registration form, etc.) or unknowingly (tracking cookies, etc.) will be sold to the highest bidder.  If you would rather have this information kept confidential, you can always buy it yourself.  However, since we sell several copies of all information we have, this probably won't change anything.

---
ARTICLE 2: ADVERTISING
As you may have already noticed, this site is covered with advertisements, most of them constantly flashing and/or moving around.  This is annoying, but we want to make sure you see them.  We need the money.  "But you're already selling my information, don't you make enough money with that?" you might say.  Of course we make a lot of money, but this is never enough.  Therefore, we sell advertising space on our website.

In fact, most of your information is bought by the advertisers, so they can figure out what kind of stuff you don't really need but think you do.  This way, you will buy a lot of pointless stuff you don't need, so they will make money and buy even more ads, so we make even more money.

"This is awfully complicated" you say?  We absolutely agree.  So why don't you just give us all your money so we can skip this whole process?  If you do so, we will disable all ads for your account.  A few days later, we will want more money, so we will enable them again.  You will have to give us all your money again if you want them disabled again.

Also, if you try to use an ad-blocker, we will harass you until you disable it.  If you still refuse, we will "borrow" your computer and disable it ourselves.

---
ARTICLE 3: ACCOUNT TERMINATION
We reserve the right to delete your account without prior notice.  Here is an incomplete list of reasons why we may do that:
*You violated any of the rules in this agreement;
*This agreement has been modified and you do not agree with the changes;
*We just don't like you;
*Someone paid us a lot of money to delete your account;
*Our employees are bored;
*We want to make sure the account deletion system works as intended;
*No reason at all.
Once an account is deleted, it cannot be undeleted.  Your IP address will also be blacklisted in our database to prevent you from creating a new account.

---
ARTICLE 4: OTHER
Organizing this agreement is complicated and a big waste of time, so in this section, we are going to dump all the rules that don't fit anywhere else.
*You must be human.  Aliens, robots and non-human animals are not allowed to use this site;
*You cannot use a proxy, TOR, or anything else we may or may not be aware of, to hide your true identity and prevent us from spying on you;
*We reserve the right to modify this agreement at any time and without prior notice.  It is your responsibility to periodically reread this agreement to make sure you are aware of all changes;
*We'll think of something else.

...that's about it.  Do you agree with these terms?


Quote from: Yes I agree with everything!on 
Congratulations!  This is a decision you will never regret.  You may now complete the registration form.


Quote from: No I don't agree with everything!on 
What do you think you're doing?  Do you seriously think you're allowed to disagree with these terms?  As a punishment, you will have to read the whole thing all over again.

The shocking truth about Efrafa  :fiver2
Quote from: Pipkin GO by Chibiscuit on  


New critters have settled in the area around Watership Down. Pipkin is determined to befriend them all but one still eludes him...

*queue Ash-style special training sequence*

Now... with his trusty Zubat (Name: Darkling) he is finally ready...!

Text if my crude writing is unreadable:

Hazel: Training every day, Pipkin has really become fit since he joined the Owsla, hasn't he?
Bigwig: yes... If only his motivation were more fit for the Owsla, as well...
Pipkin: I WILL catch you, Articuno-!

Quote from: The History of the Vacuum Cleaner by Bright Side on  
This is a parody of my novel's mission statement. The real thing can be found on my writing thread.

-----------------------------------

My primary objective with The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is to kill the reader – preferably in 5.383640278 seconds, but 5.383640279 seconds is ok, too. To inspire people to burn down the world and/or go to prison is my goal. Another way to take a quiz is by using my novel to get a dead mouse on a crescent roll with some steak. It's better than getting a B on our report card, right? And if people simply mow the lawn, that’s also good.

To this end, The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is a deep novel. And that’s alright; we can't ignore the Star Spangled Banner forever. But how can we go outside if we're already outside?



How can a made-up world with people who exist only in ink and paper have any bearing on the concrete figures surrounding us? Well, it doesn't. Actually, my novel can have no effect on the world and you know what? This is <CENSORED> None of what I'm writing is relevant and we apologize for the over exaggerated break to follow.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well, oysters come into play. Some were terrible, and some (to my pleasant surprise) have such a juicy flesh and tender inners. I want The History of the Vacuum Cleaner to be more than a carpenter. I want it to be a tree. Happy birthday, by the way. Something that will sound as pleasant as nails scraping against an old chalkboard. Delicious.

There are only 72 ways to know, but I have worked very hard on my novel. (Not really) There are few things I am truly devoted to, and The History of the Vacuum Cleaner is not one of them.

RANDOM GIF TIME




There is so much effort I have never put into this thing. And, well, I eat as fast as a train that left Chicago at 8:02 AM and is heading for a train that left Ohio at 9:43 AM. No matter the end result, it will all be pineapples.

I don’t know what impact my face will have, whether sesquipedalian or idiosyncratic. But it’ll do something (Not). Maybe, by publishing this novel, I’ll finally :pipkin-oh

Don't worry, J. I read the fine print many times just to make sure I read it correctly. I'll be waiting. :p
