    "Look at the mess we’ve got ourselves into," Colonel Aureliano Buendia said at that time, "just because we invited a gringo to eat some bananas."
    "I'll go," said Chagataev. "But what will I do there? Build socialism?"
    "What else?" said the secretary.

    I want to post passages from A Song of Ice and Fire, but I'm not sure if they'll be spoilers or not.

    A couple:

    "Bad enough when the dead come walking, now the Old Bear wants them talking as well? No good will come of that, I'll warrant. And who's to say the bones wouldn't lie? Why should death make a man truthful, or even clever? The dead are likely dull fellows, full of tedious complaints-the ground's too cold, my gravestone should be larger, why does he get more worms than I do...."
    Our goat shoud have consulted the Tarbecks and Reynes. They might have warned him how your lord father deals with betrayal.
    - There are no Tarbecks and Reynes.
    - My point precisely.

    It's my first language.

    I've never read Márquez in English, but he says he actually thinks his translator does a better job as a stylist than he does. People seem to like the English translations enough that it might be true.

    I'm actually not from Florida. I just lived there. Moved up to NYC a couple of years ago.

    Back in Miami though until fall semester starts.

    I've never met Ashi before. Seems like we have a mutual friend though.

    But hey, if the fantasy turns you on don't let that stop you.

    Except we never even talked, I don't think. I met up with the Panamanian girl when I first moved to NYC though. That was nice.

    Dogar, you know there are a variety of places you can see breasts (and probably nicer ones, to be honest) for free? Animated ones too - that might be more your thing. And I tend to charge money when I model nude, sorry.

    I have no idea who would bother pretending to be a random poster from years ago.

    She? So we're at least agreeing that I'm a girl?

    Whatever happened to FM? Does he still post here?

    Go for it Dogar. I've got nothing better to do. Well, I could be writing my term paper but this is more fun.

    posting style is consistent for one. i dont know who you have in your mind who would be the person to be perpetrating all these alts.

    Who are the other alt accounts?

    It's like we're roleplaying old PD members.

    Neherc for one, turned out to be Lord.

    Lord is the main perpetrator of our alt fears, the fucker had like 20 different accounts at one point. Thank god he seemed to mellow as he got older.

    That wasn't meant to prove anything. I'm genuinely curious. Fullmetal was a cool dude and I wonder what happened to him.

    I don't remember the kid's username but his real name was Juan. Never saw him after middle school.

    Haha really? Neeherc the old mod? I remember that dude tried to cyber with one of my friends who was significantly younger than us.

    fullmetal got caught in a long cycle where he would return and then quit in a rage after being beaten in stupid arguments that only he cared about. his most recent return must have been summer 2010, and ended under similar circumstances.

    i foiled lord's neeherc alt by asking him what the origin of his name was, which was an extremely obscure that no one in half their right mind would know except me.

    the real name is in fact correct

    I feel like you can model Fullmetal's return increments with a logarithmic formula

    His name was from his cats from what I remember. He said he was drunk when it happened and my friend just stopped talking to him. In retrospect the guy must have had issues if he spent all his time online talking to middle-schoolers.

    Why are you asking questions you don't know the answers to, Dogar? Also he has Hispanic (from Peru) but I think might have had a bit of Chinese in him? Some sort of Asian.
