Rogolo just pointed out that FXhomer veteran Ben3308 has recently attained 3308 FXperience points (the score by which an FXhomer's overall reputation is measured).

We don't know whether this is a good or a bad thing, but it must mean something. This kind of alignment doesn't happen often - in fact, this could prove to be a more momentous event in human history than the 2012 Mayan apocalypse.

Time will tell.

Only John Cusack can save us now!

Oh. My. God.

B+E+N : 2+5+14=21
Day : 11th
Difference: 21-11=10

Full Date : 9.11.2009 -> 9+11+2+0+0+9=31
Ben's numbers: 3308 -> 33+0+8=41
Difference: 41-31=10

Scientific Explanation: Exactly 10 days from today's date, Texas will achieve total world domination, with the Adams brothers as the hype/propaganda machine.

We are all doomed.

I always wondered what 3308 meant. Now I know. It was his masterplan all along. Shiny.

Of course, this means that NOBODY can +1 or -1 Ben3308 ever again, because that would just spoil the synchronicity. We also won't let him upload any presets or win any kind of competitions that could result in FXperience point rewards.

To do otherwise would risk a great imbalance in the natural order.

Ben and Dre were our usernames when we signed up for Juno Client Email when we were.......like 5-years-old. It assigned him Ben3308 and myself Dre3308- just random numbers on the end because Ben and Dre were both already taken. 15 years later, I guess you could say it stuck.

Completely coincidentally, actually, my college ID code is ATA338. Spookily close for being randomly assigned to me.

Years of gaining +1's and -1's, and years of giving away FXperience have led me to this momentous occasion. It would appear you've partially divulged my tightly-knit plans for domination, but I rest assured knowing you all have neither the malevolent cunning nor dastardly thinking to keep up with my intents.

I will only leave you with one further clue. 3308 is the key to Tag Team. That is all. twisted

And it was all ruined the moment someone gave him another +1. Pity.

-1's don't count negatively towards FXperience, customarily. So instead you're just marking a negative for no reason. I can, however, give away the force, thus returning it to 3308....

The funny thing is, now people will finally give him lots of 1+, but for the wrong reason.

Oh well I'll take it away then. Plus did I really need a -1? I just wanted to help. I took it away. Congrats on reaching 3308!

Yeah, I can't wait to get "lots" now. The 480+ I had before was such a paltry amount. biggrin

Well, it is paltry compared to the all-time leader, Mr. Tarnimus, leading the pack with +1768.

...and to be fair, your +480 was balanced out a bit with -220 biggrin But who's counting?



I will take my insignificant +110, back away slowly, and brace for recoil....

Well, the -220 is about half from my first year here, where 40 or so were from Atom just to see if he could get away with it - he ended up losing his -1 privileges because of that, actually - and the rest are because I don't like to pull punches in discussions here, even if I sound incensed. wink

Really, though, it's not like I go out of my way to be an asshole to people, as others sometimes do. I just try to be helpful, but not disingenuous about who I am or my opinions on things, even if they come off flagrant at times.

Yeah, but like, more 1+'s per post was what I meant. wink
