I think you are overreacting. I only said that I did not google; I didnt say whether you yourself did or didnt. Im sorry you misinterpreted my point. In any case, I shouldnt really have posted all that. It was most careless of me not to realize that I might unintentionally upset you. I take it all back.

Lets just concentrate on the game.

I used to be a matrix, but I was in disarray.

I didn't expect that. Shows how cynical I am. It takes a big person to write it, bigger than me.

I used to own an auto dealership until I was incarcerated.

I don't agree. I don't want to curtail you or anyone else from speaking plainly at me. It appears I still have some soft tissue that needs hardening. Will control my reflex emotions and give the benefit of the doubt in the future.

I used to be a bad-guy until I was deloused.

I was a knight, but I was disgraced by the crown. My sword was destroyed, and my exploits discredited.

Triple word score. A bit like scrabble.

Also, why is scrabble called scrabble? Scrabbling describes frantic movements of the hands...Like scrabbling at a slippery thing like a glacier...

Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being saught. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.
