Sometimes it takes a bit for everyone to vote.

Oh, (reaction to James Carkmack comments on previous thread) I can accept "Slick", just as long as no one says "whimsical":eek: I actually meant to say 'Chief of State', it just sounds like a new cabinet post someone would think up.

You know DS, when you take out that silent e, it changes the whole story.

Oh, and I'm sure every unit follows SOP to the letter, all the time.

But of course. Perfect obedience in all times and all places. Unwavering professionalism from top to bottom. Yes, sir.

I can't believe how often I misspelled this. Only got it right three times, and one of those is in the title. :eek: (I was battling with that during writing; I really thought there would be less corpses in my piece... :o )

You're applying anthropomorphic models of consciesness and decision. Who or what follows or doesn't follow rules, here?

I dunno, DS. I think the corpses are appropriate for a battle robot contest, don't you? ^_^

I dunno, the units are more like lost limbs (brains?), considering that the entire UN Peace Corps is registered, legally, as one person.

Congratulations, Expendable! :D

The poll is closed, isn't it? It says so.

***

Btw, I edited all the corpses. Would have done so earlier, but I thought it was cheating before the voting's over.

I don't know if you did, but you should have mentioned when the poll was closing.

I thought I had way more time than four days to cast a vote.

Oh well.

Well, if the poll is closed, then I guess congratulations are in order for Expy. Omedetou. How's that warm fuzzy?

I don't remember a deadline. I just came here to check and found the poll closed.
