Alas[edit]

As I have never worn socks, singly or in pairs, nor can I make any assumptiation that I could do so in the near future, I think there could be a problem with the legalosity of my joining Web 3.0. I'm not looking forward to the destructanation of my current way of life and prefer its normalacity. However, I wish you luck and may Web 3.0 become the most winningmationist endeavour ever. --PsyGremlinParla! 10:06, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

ಠ______ಠ Most of those words are not approved. Mei (talk) 21:10, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I will gladly join this[edit]

I can wear ties and formal suits, and often wear not one but two shoes. I would like to apply for the job of senior under-over-sideways-forwards-positive-imaginary-secretary for the management of governance of leadership. Word word Hoover! 10:21, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I would also like to apply as Minister of Hierarchotopology. Word word Hoover! 13:16, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
I too will join Meistan or whatever it will be called. My one fear, though, is that the citizens of the real world constitute a security risk because of their ability to pull the plug out of the wall. Tetronian you're clueless 13:58, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
How will they know where the plug is? Mei (talk) 21:10, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Hooray for all my citizens. We do not have a name yet. Plus I am beginning to regret all those language jokes. Maybe I should have made one serious update and one not-serious one. Mei (talk) 21:10, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Suggest official motto be "MEIA VSVI EST". Word word Hoover! 16:03, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
What do you think our monetary system should be? Mei (talk) 18:00, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
What could we possibly trade? Software? If we're creating an internet state anything proprietary will be undercut by the nerds that would inevitably accumulate. Word word Hoover! 18:03, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
The Mei. 100 Mei = 1 Mei. Totnesmartin (talk) 18:08, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
BORING. Powers of ten are so 19th Century. Two is the way forward! Word word Hoover! 18:09, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
You mean like binary? I think that would look a bit patronizing. I think an internet state would probably end up trading pornography. It is inevitable. Mei (talk) 18:40, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
No, make the denomination 255 squibs to a squob (or whatever), then number it in hex. The numbers are easy enough to work with and it interfaces better with computers, appropriate for an internet state. Word word Hoover! 18:51, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
You can be in charge of all money and banks. Mei (talk) 19:01, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I first propose that the currency symbol be "#", because it looks cool, is in the ASCII, and is already associated with numbers. I am also open to the suggestion that there be no secondary denomination. Word word Hoover! 19:06, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree with your symbol. What is your thinking about the secondary denomination? Would you just use decimals? How do decimals even work in hex? Mei (talk) 19:11, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Decimals are normally represented in wp:Floating-point, which leads on to another advantage of using hex: base-10 decimals are frequently recurring in floating-point, so you can't exactly represent 0.1. Word word Hoover! 19:16, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Math is confusing for Mei. :( Mei (talk) 19:40, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
It's the same as the way you can't exactly write 1/3 as a decimal. Word word Hoover! 19:42, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I understood the part about recurring. I did not understand that article about floating point. Mei (talk) 19:52, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Floating point is basically scientific notation in binary. Word word Hoover! 19:54, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
OK then. Mei (talk) 19:57, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

← What will this state do? Word word Hoover! 20:38, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

It will assert custodianship of its citizens. Mei (talk) 04:57, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

This is my kind of state...[edit]

I presume that the "legalism" that your state will adopt will involve the killing of scholars and the burning of books, with any dissenters sent to build the Great Wall of Mei? --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 03:17, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I coined legalism as a term of derision. The law in a state run by Mei would minimal. Sorry! :3 Mei (talk) 04:57, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
We should totally have a Great Wall of Mei though. Mei (talk) 04:57, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
