Email me Broccoli 19:50, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

Eddy, if you don't, I might just wander in your direction... Broccoli 15:02, 14 April 2009 (EDT)


*Gasp!* How liberal of you! *grin* Nice one. Had me fooled. --PsyGremlinWhut? 03:09, 24 April 2009 (EDT)


Same as before, but different! Presumably the First Macduff would have something to say about that: TUDSPEIE

Seriously though, have ye a proxy for the weekend? Broccoli 19:42, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Million dollar question[edit]

So, when you had everybody over there in a tizzwazz over Columbanus, with Dean leaping in and shooting before asking questions... was that an accident, or an "accident?" --PsyGremlinWhut? 08:19, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

That was an ‘‘accident‘‘. At first I thought it was parody, but then I saw it was real (wikipedia) and decided to make a fuss. EddyP 09:12, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
He also felt a bit stupid... Broccoli 18:06, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

And how about your 'Communist Manifesto' chemistry book? Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 19:42, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

That wasn't me! I said it wasn't a commie propaganda tool. Some other guy said it was. EddyP 19:47, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
I know. But were you truly defending your textbook or was it another one of your ruses? :) Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 19:51, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
I assure you, that chemistry textbook has no political bent. EddyP 20:12, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Wrong. That book is deeply communist. Note how atoms are encouraged to bond by sharing electrons: a clear sign of communist meddling. Broccoli 23:03, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Schlafly Doo[edit]

Thanks for correcting that error in my gay little story. I added Kendoll to it after I realised he was the one that writes all these articles linking Atheism and Homosexuality rather than Jpatt. SJ Debaser 08:54, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

No problem! I actually quite enjoyed your story, contrary to my initial expectations, and I'd appreciate it if you were to write more; I think you captured Andy's spirit particularly well. EddyP 17:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Ah thank ya! I was expecting hate mail telling me to die because of it's poor quality but there ya go. I will be writing more, though perhaps not for a while as it's exam season and I ought to be focused on that. SJ Debaser 18:44, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Exams coming up here as well. I've got a month to go. EddyP 18:47, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Broken Steel[edit]

Have you changed your mind on Fallout 3 DLC? Broken Steel is definitely worth it, if only for the level cap increase to 30. --Edgerunner76Tah-daaaaaaah! 17:52, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree. There are some cool new weapons, too. Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 18:00, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
(EC, curse you Wes) In all honesty, no. Like I said, DLC really isn't my thing! I'm not really sure I need the increased level cap (unless there are some good perks to be had). Besides, right now I'm playing Oblivion more often than Fallout - I've never played a mage all the way. Also, exams coming up, need to work, yahdeyahdeyah and so on and so forth. EddyP 18:02, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
The one nice thing about Broken Steel over other DLC is that it gives a feeling of change. You get to see the effects of activating Project Purity. And, depending on whether or not you used the modified FEV, you get to see one of two possible changes. It's not something just added as a tangent.
The perks are neat. I, personally, only found about four of them to be really worth taking. However, that does then mean that you can pick up some number of the original perks that you might have wanted but passed over for something else. --Edgerunner76Tah-daaaaaaah! 18:09, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
What's more, you can continue the game after the final mission. That's what I like about Borked Steel more than the other DLCs. The Pitt was neat only because it is home, and I didn't care much for Anchorage, with the exception of the new gauss rifle weapon. Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 14:26, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
The Chinese Stealth Suit from Operation: Anchorage was definitely the best DLC piece of equipment from that pack. --Edgerunner76Tah-daaaaaaah! 14:38, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Damn, forgot about that one being from Anchorage. It is the only armor you will ever use again once you get it. By the way, I found Fallouts 1 and 2 for the PC. Didn't buy it yet, but at least they are available. Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 15:22, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Get off my lawn! *Grabs shotgun*. No means no! And didn't you read my obligatory workworkexamsexams mumbling? EddyP 18:31, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
FINE! But I warn you, the pond is highly irradiated, and deathclaws spawn right by the porch. Also, I think I left a mini-nuke trap lying around. EddyP 19:14, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

How'd the exams go? Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 02:53, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

They start on the 5th and finish on the 18th. Not looking forward to them ;_;, but thanks for asking! EddyP 13:14, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Thus far, badly ;_; EddyP 11:09, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I assume the exams are over, did they get any better? Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 17:00, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for asking, they did get better! Chemistry was fine, and I reckon I scraped through Latin with enough marks; the last one should make up for the first two. EddyP 17:52, 20 June 2009 (UTC)


It's yours. The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 14:40, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks very much! EddyP 17:51, 20 June 2009 (UTC)


Ace has had a drink, which is why I am offering hugs around. Ace McWickedNecron99 10:26, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Then have MORE! EddyP (talk) 10:27, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Then I'll have to more to offer. Good plan. Ace McWickedNecron99 10:29, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

In regards to the regards of to the e-mail which you were going to send me[edit]

I sent it a month ago. Didn't you get it? --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 20:05, 31 July 2009 (UTC)


If you are going to burn the sock I think you are going to burn, bear in mind that certain edits will likely be reviewed. Broccoli 18:04, 25 October 2009 (UTC)


I have sent you a very important e-mail. --PsygremlinSermā! 10:33, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Eddy! Check your email. Broccoli (talk) 21:23, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
I have received a very unimportant e-mail. EddyP (talk) 21:30, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Join the free Marcus Cicero campaign![edit]

Go on. You're on holiday now/soon, anyway. This wiki needs MC. Broccoli (talk) 19:31, 10 December 2009 (UTC)


Double bed and ensuite? Lucky git. SJ Debaser 17:34, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

And the rent's low cos of building work (which finished in November)! But the showers don't work well :( EddyP (talk) 20:58, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Lucky, smelly git. SJ Debaser 21:34, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Nice bath though. EddyP (talk) 18:29, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Liberal style stuff[edit]

Ta for the suggestion there. I'm working on rewrite, and it's probably going to take a week or two due to the length of the thing. Also, a lot of the previous points have moved to different numbers, so that's taking time to reflow. I've added the change you made to the version I have in a text file on my computer, and I'll do the same if there are any other changes to the versions in the sandbox or the one in mainspace. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 00:38, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Not at all, glad you like it. EddyP (talk) 11:03, 31 January 2010 (UTC)


'EC x 6'

Sorry sorry. -- =w= 17:19, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

You'll all be sorry. EddyP (talk) 17:19, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Onoz. ;________; -- =w= 17:21, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Mei is sorry
You can do that just by
Mei is sorry

. Much easier! Also tell me about ETrundel. I think I remember him. -- =w= 17:25, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

I have fixed the formatting! Now you have weird floating boxes of Mei. -- =w= 18:51, 4 February 2010 (UTC)


Did I forget something today? No, can't think of anything. Broccoli (talk) 19:12, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Most likely you forgot some work you had to do. EddyP (talk) 20:02, 18 March 2010 (UTC)


Replied on my talk page, but thought I'd also post here. Awesome little haiku btw. Made my day. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 13:56, 26 March 2010 (UTC)


here Waronstupidity (talk) 22:33, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm not going to review your 800 something edits to find something interesting to write about. So do something fun like break the wiki or something to make yourself notable. -- Nx / talk 00:12, 10 April 2010 (UTC)


Isn't it past your bedtime? Broccoli (talk) 02:29, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Working at the same time. EddyP (talk) 02:32, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Finished lectures yet? Broccoli (talk) 02:33, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Noooo, got literature. You? EddyP (talk) 02:41, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
One essay and revision. Nothing else, except 1 lecture. Broccoli (talk) 02:43, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Bastard. Still have two weeks. EddyP (talk) 02:46, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Why did we bother to stay awake? We might as well have slept through it. Broccoli (talk) 07:47, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Went to sleep at 6:00 - the sun was up. Lecture number one can go hang. EddyP (talk) 08:02, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I've realised I actually have some work to do. I think I might give up and start that. Broccoli (talk) 08:05, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

On the other hand[edit]

If you want to make MC's comments disappear:


-- Nx / talk 21:11, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

[1] [2] -- Nx / talk 21:14, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Looks like witchcraft to me. EddyP (talk) 21:21, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
It just marks the original edit and the rollback as a bot edit, hiding it from RC and depriving the troll from the attention they seek. Just pop it into your special:Mypage/monobook.js and you'll see a bot rollback button alongside the normal rollback one. -- Nx / talk 21:22, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! First time I've been into the monobook. EddyP (talk) 21:36, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Cop On[edit]

You are at present below my radar. You do not want to be on my radar. Just a friendly threat. (talk) 13:46, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
It's true! He'll be a minor nuisance, even after you give up playing his game. Quarucatamite - You can't explain that! 13:48, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Why are you binning me?[edit]

Do you really want me to target you? You come across as a particularly uncharismatic lout - you don't want me to start on you, I can assure you of that. (talk) 21:56, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

If TK can wank to his block log, why can't I? EddyP (talk) 22:03, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
So you admit you are TK? Why is that no surprise? Just stay out of my way and there won't be any trouble. Capiche? (talk) 22:09, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't like italian food. EddyP (talk) 22:14, 5 August 2010 (UTC)


You are getting a h/t in my latest blog posting. Expect fame, fortune, and barely-legal groupies any day now. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 14:33, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Will I rank number 1 on a certain search engine starting with a G? EddyP (talk) 15:16, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, if used in conjunction with the words "Busted", "Terry" and "Hurlbut" there's a very good chance. But then I take half your groupies. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 15:26, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
Sir, I am pleased to report that for searches of EddyP on a search engine beginning with G, you are currently 7th. Please deliver groupies forthwith. --PsyGremlin말하십시오 15:02, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I make it 5th. Looks like RW ranks high for yet another important search term on a search engine starting with a G. EddyP (talk) 15:08, 8 August 2010 (UTC)


Did you find an internet connection all the way over there? Broccoli (talk) 18:45, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

All the way over where? I fly out on Monday. EddyP (talk) 19:09, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
My source was less than clear. Booked any cheap park benches yet? My Tarot cards tell me I will be travelling to somewhere wet with mad relatives shortly. Broccoli (talk) 20:18, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I've already done the mad relatives rounds. Hopefully I'll be able to ad-hoc the park benches. EddyP (talk) 20:39, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Know anything more[edit]

About this [3]? I don't think the Beeb have picked up on it yet. Broccoli (talk) 21:48, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Hadn't seen that, thanks. Three days until the party conference! EddyP (talk) 19:35, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
Torygraph seems to have decided 'un is the next leader. Guardian's still wibbling, but this is a good bit from their article: After his rehabilitation, Chang was described by Choi Jin-wook of the Korea Institute for National Unification in Seoul as having fewer enemies than other senior cadres "because when he purges people, they are not just sent away from Pyongyang, they are killed". Broccoli (talk) 21:01, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Don't classify yourself[edit]

But tell me something about yourself so that I could do it for you. --Idiot number 59 (talk) 13:40, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

I have a certificate around here somewhere certifying that I got a 1st at a certain Cambridge college. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 13:54, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Good job I packed it in when I did, otherwise you'd have rumbled my pidgin Japanese over at you-know-where :) Nihongo o hanashimashite, desu ka? and just for you.

--Ψ Gremlin講話 22:28, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks to blonde hair, blue eyes and a height of more than six feet, there's little risk of that. And I have so little confidence in my Japanese that I can't tell if your Japanese is wrong or if I'm just stupid, so don't worry about it too much (~masu + te form? It's possible, I suppose, but I've never heard it and it sounds a bit off). EddyP Great King! Disaster! 22:40, 9 February 2011 (UTC)


Did you mean to do this or was it some kind of EC problem? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 10:48, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Zounds, I am discovered! I must move quickly to deflect the accusation! 'Tis nought but an EC problem, my good man. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 11:23, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
Very well, I shall call off my army of flesh-eating fruit flies. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 13:57, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

"Vandal bin"[edit]

Hello. I am a relative newcomer to the site ( don't get me wrong by my username, I'm here for good-faith related edits ). I decided to see the site's surroundings, and found, not only a block log, but a vandal log too. Even though I do not wish to play the highly dangerous game of RationalTroll, I do wish to see how your methods of preventing this form of bloodbath entertainment. Could you please tell me how the vandal bin works for me?? - Another n00b (talk) 21:04, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

The vandal bin allows you to insert cunts into articles at the leisurely rate of once every half hour. Run along now, little urchin, and don't associate with those nasty rough boys who play RationalTroll. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 21:14, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh thank you! I searched for "MediaWiki:Vandalbrakenotice", and I kinda get how it works. So it stops the occupant from editing for at least 30 minutes, although by this time they would have been blocked anyway. I quite like the idea.... do you think Uncyclopedia would like it?? It's what there looking for. See you later! - Another n00b (talk) 21:18, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

PJR's holocaust revisionism?[edit]

Really? Where was that? P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 19:08, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

PJR's holocaust revisionisT. It's somewhere in his exposé; when Andy sent the Lenski e-mail, he gave rights to a very new user who backed him up on the talk page. The user turned out to be a holocaust revisionist. Here: "Then there was the case of the editor who partially supported Andy in his attack on Richard Lenski, to whom Andy gave night edit rights after only two edits. The editor turned out to also be a holocaust revisionist." EddyP Great King! Disaster! 19:31, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Ah, sorry for the mix-up, and thanks. P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 21:41, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
