That is totally fantastic.

I wonder if this is better or worse than the cop-out of their most influential person being You?

Saw an article on Wired that said Anonymous hackers managed to *ahem* unduely influence the results.

Apparently the first letter of the top 21 people spells out MARBLECAKE something or other, which is a 4chan inside joke.

I believe the first hack was caught, but the next one ...

I think it had to be a real person to be eligible to be voted for.

Well I'll be - It does!  'Marblecake also the game' (whateverthehell that means.)

I'm going to go with the Wired article.  That's just too statistically improbable to be legitimate.

Don't ask. If you ask I'm legally required to tell you about it... and then your life as you know it is over.

Too late there's a question mark at the end of my last post before the confusy face.

Ok, you asked for it.

1) As soon as you are told about the game you are playing the game.

2) You cannot stop playing the game for any reason.

3) As soon as you think about the game you lose. Someone says "Did you catch the game last night?" and you think about the game... you lose. Someone says "I lost at..." and you think about the game you lose.

4) Once you have lost the game you must immediately announce that you have lost. Something along the lines of "Damnit! I just lost the game" or a variation on such will be acceptable

5) Once you have lost the game you have a half hour free period where you can think about the game as much as you like without losing.

Now, seeing as you have no doubt thought about the game while reading this...

You just lost the game...

Quote from: Urban Dictionary
Marble Cake may be used as either a noun or a verb; however, in either context it describes the action of a man anally penetrating either a man or a woman and ejaculating inside of said person. Afterwards the person on the receiving end defecates. If the defecator is a man, he then masturbates into his own feces.

Finally, the resulting mass of feces and ejaculatory fluids is put on a platter and one or both parties partake of the "cake."

...

You are all strange, strange people.
