What? NINE THOUSAND? There’s no way that can be right!
Noooooo! I was too late… to post that. Oh well, there will be other useable internet memes.
I’m kind of sorry I’ll be missing this con as the possibilities are abundant: fistfights, bomb threats, fire alarms…or it could be surprisingly civil.
Wow. I do not find that even remotely funny.
I am not sure what causes your disbelief, but Mike’s numbers are correct. See http://sasquan.org/member-numbers/ for more details and breakdown.
Peace: there is a bit of anger about this situation. I expect it to be civil, but tense.
The only real off the wall situation I was at was when Ted White got a pie in his face. But that was long long ago.
Glen: Martin wasn’t *really* expressing disbelief, he was just enjoying linking to that particular video clip. If you didn’t follow that link, do so, and you’ll understand why he wrote what he wrote.
Darah: I was allowing for the possibility of both.
