Sig Fig Darwin Awards?
Join to comment
We all have to admit: there is no better abuse than the kind you get when you "remove yourself from the gene pool in the most extraordinarily stupid way possible." What am I speaking of? The infamous Darwin Awards! There couldn't be a better contest for an abusers club! All we need is enough thumbs up, and maybe this could become a reality. I'll let Mark decide the rules, as the D.A.s can get pretty out of hand. But then again, that's IF it becomes a contest.
Soo, what's your opinion?

Oh, geese dude, that is sooooo frickin' tempting! I think that's a great idea. Let's wait a bit, though. I want to make sure MOCpages is running at full capacity before getting into doing a contest (and this is one I'd want to judge for sure!).

At the moment, everything seems to be loading pretty quickly, but last night I couldn't even get on to the site because of the slow load time. Once everything moves as it should for a few days, and I know Sean's got the problem fixed, I say we go ahead and do this. Maybe I can even come up with a prize.

So, who wants to be a judge for this?

*Raises hand*.

I know, you guys probably want me to compete, but to be honest, I've got enough on my plate right now and this seems like the perfect thing to keep me occupied on my long boring shifts at work. What, you expect me to actually work? Pfft! As if!

Tempting is the word of choice. I agree with waiting a little, though.

This should be just what I need to build something other than space...

Alright, Chrispy...if I go with three judges (and I probably will), you're in.

Since our illustrious Mr. Kenny is hard at work and the slow loading issue looks to be soon resolved (THANK GOOOOODDDDD!!!!!), I'll go ahead and try to work out rules and details this weekend, and have something for us all to start messing with some time next week (That's not guaranteed, but it's what I'll shoot for).

I'm warning you Mark, don't try to come up with a Super Game! This is not MOCtag or MOColympics, and you're not Shannon Young or Chris Phipson. This is the Darwin awards. You can't use your *cough* genius *cough* too much, or else this'll become something akin to a paintball war with too much armor.

So in short...Let's do it! =) I probably won't join in the reindeer games due to being quite busy with plain ol' life, but if you need a judge, I'm open. Cupcakes anyone?

It's truly interesting that a few simple words can spark even the smallest amount of smack talk. Geez, how do you all do it?

And keep the mind a foot out of the gutter when responding.

Keep a foot out of the gutter...what's that supposed to mean? Are you saying I'm in the gutter? I may be a demented fantasy freak whos had one too many Mountain Dews, but Im definitely not in the gutter. Kelso is the most likely candidate for that position.

Agreed, even one of me is almost more awesomeness than the planet can handle.

But JD brings up a good point. Around MOCpages, the name Kelso is synonymous with inferior building, laughable photography, and a repellent, one could even say repugnant, personality. Nobody can stand this guy. Everybody knows what a talentless boor he is. Having him attached to your Lego project is the kiss of death. Think long and hard (pauses for the inevitable Phipsonian response) -- do you really want the Kelso name infecting your contest? I mean, you want it to be a success, right?

Allow me to say it again; keep the mind 1ft out of the gutter. By all means, you can leave your foot there if it comforts you. I'm still not entirely sure who to direct it at, but I certainly won't aim it at you.

This contest idea is picking up alot of momentum. I can't wait to enter it when it's officially declared official, by an official who officially officiates this group, officially. And now you see why I hate getting up at 6:00am.

Exactly! Just look at him - the guy is addicted to The Far Side and paint fumes. I wouldn't be surprised if he won the Darwin awards by just being himself.

Oh, and Karta, I'm already out of the gutter. I've been out for...two weeks now! I still have no idea what the gutter is, but hey...

How do we do it? Hanging out with Kelso is a good start. That man is just a veritable magnet for insults. But just watch out for his hands in a dark theater... they tend to wander.

And as for the gutter, I've been living comfortably here for a number of years now. They know me, they like me, I'm thinking of running for Mayor next term. You'd vote for me right?

That's very thoughtful of you, Dylan. (and the proper attitude, if you ask me). But speaking personally, my figs always ready to take some heat. So if you want to put together a MOC for this event, don't hesitate to use SigKelso Figgy. Even if you can't find the exact minifig parts, just do something close and you're good to go.

As they say in some universe out there: take pride in your filth. I'm afraid, however, that immigrants of the gutter are not allowed to vote. Could you send me a form to fill out to earn my civilian rights, please? Then I'm sure I'll vote for you.

I'm sixteen, and the house rule is that I don't get a job so long as I have an all A's report card. It has held, and will be held until age 18, when I go to college.

To be honest, coffee tastes awful to me. I'm willing to bet that I'm the only one in my school, give or take some students, that doesn't drink coffee.
