A: What he said about Ep 2.

The following is not directed at you Jack, but to EVERYONE.

DO NOT BUILD ANYTHING FOR THE GAMES NOW! IT IS AGAINST THE RULES TO POST ANYTHING THAT YOU BUILD BEFORE THE MATCHUPS ARE POSTED! IF WE FIND OUT THAT YOU BUILT SOMETHING BEFORE THE GAMES STARTED AND YOU USE IT AS AN ENTRY, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!

you can certainly ask your opponent to give you their email address, but I can't "force" anyone to do it. It is a REALLY good idea though to have the email address of your opponent so you can coordinate posting if you guys plan on posting early.

Here's what we can do. When the matchups are announced, if you need your opponents email, ask me for it here and then email me your address at:

Mocolympics@gmail.com

If your opponent wants to give you their email address, they can email it to me there and I will forward it to you. Man that's going to be a lot of work so I hope a lot of you already have each other's emails...

The simple answer is, start a harem. I've known a few Russian girls in my time and they usually don't seem to mind (and from your discription of her wanton ways, I think I may be right on that). Your current filly may not agree totally, so be sure to make her more plyable with copious amounts of tequila.

I really hope you're not planning on submitting a creation that you have already built as an entry to the MocOlympics.

All entries MUST be built WITHIN the ten day time span. Anything built BEFORE that WILL be disqualified.

And... just a question for you all to think about...

You can if you want to, but let me just say this first.

There is a ten day time frame from the start of the round (round 1 will be posted on August 13th and "officially" start on Friday the 14th.) until the end of the round on Sunday the 23rd, so at worst, you'll only be missing a day or two and still have plenty of time to build and post your moc.

If you still want out, reply to this comment and I'll take you off the list, but I hope you decide to stay.

gross. lol =P just get one of those brick separators at those LEGO shops, they're only $2.95 each.

They're not currently available in italy, so the shipment would cost me more than the actual separators... Doc said: 3 days home from work, ice and rest. So NO BUILDING :'(

You can if you want to, but let me just say this first.

There is a ten day time frame from the start of the round (round 1 will be posted on August 13th and "officially" start on Friday the 14th.) until the end of the round on Sunday the 23rd, so at worst, you'll only be missing a day or two and still have plenty of time to build and post your moc.

If you still want out, reply to this comment and I'll take you off the list, but I hope you decide to stay.


Hm, yes I had been thinking about that...I'm not sure. I just don't want to not post soon enough and not go with my word that I would do it...

Oh yeah, now I remember! It helps to have 2 if you wanted to take something, say, 2 1x2 tiles, apart. You would attach one BS to the top one, and one BS to the bottom one, then they would come apart easily.

So will you laugh to know that I used to tour with a modeling company and was an MJ impersonator...nope, not kidding. Wig, make-up, glove, leather jackets, the whole thing. I'm trying to figure out if that was the low point or the high point of my performing career...you guys can decide.

Dear Chris,

Oprah was unable to answer my question, so maybe you can. Is it acceptable for a blind person to take his dog into a department store, swing it around in the air on its leash and say "I'm just looking around"?

Dear Chris,

My wife says I'm an idiot . . . but that's not the problem. The problem I'm facing is whether or not I should stop using Right Guard deodorant when they don't sell Left Guard at any store I've shopped in. What should I do?

I feel my stalker has stopped stalking me. The van is no longer down the street and I fear she may have moved on to someone else, perhaps you. Should I send flowers? Maybe a sammich?

Get the cheeseburger! There always trying to trick you when you buy the burger and add cheese, you'll save yourself 10

I would go with "hamburger with cheese" just to see the confused look on the kid behind the counter. And every time he asks if you mean "cheeseburger" you say "No, I want a hamburger, with cheese."

First, you're wife is right. Second, Your dilema is one that has faced many for generations. The simple solution is to have your wife put it on your left side, which would of course be her right side, therebye essentially guarding her right side from the foulness that you exude. And let me just emphasis this part... your wife is right.

Stalkers only enjoy stalking people when they don't know that they're being stalked. Once you become part of the "festivities," it's no longer a thrill for them. My advice would be to pretend that you don't know you're being stalked and your stalker should return soon. Remember, it's only as fun for them as you let it be.
