Oh, you got me again with your rapier wit, Algren.

Yes, it's true. I'm just a loser, starting in High School when I hosted the talent contest, wrote a musical comedy, edited the school newspaper and won the best debator award. I graduated college with honors and won awards for my work as manager of the college radio station. I have a successful legal career, a happy marriage, a nice house, good friends .... I own and manage one of the largest live action games in the US and Canada, and my books sell pretty regularly and in fact, my agent just got me a nice advance for my next one (along with audio rights). I am invited to speak often, and am hosting part of a convention this weekend (along with the writers conference I sponsor every year). I play a number of musical instruments, have been in some fairly successful bands, and have had other bands play covers of the songs I have written.

But I am a failure because I'm not real good at an online game against 5 or 6 other people.

I just don't know how I live with myself.


Haha.

Cringe worthy post. Why not add it to the back of one of your best-selling books? I have a feeling that you have that text saved in a Word document for quick-use.

I just like tweaking people like you who have this misguided notion that they're clever, that's all.

It's just Algren -- he likes tweaking me and I sometimes take the bait instead of ignoring him like one should always do with trolls.

I apologize for that post. I was not in a good mood when I wrote it. :wacko:

Catching up. Hopefully get a one time #1 position in this game. I am just wondering when i.hope will start that miraculous run to the top. Probably by second week of April :P

Groucho, you can now probably add "quarterly winner of RT Picker game" to your impressive list of achievements. ;)

So Groucho widens the gap this weekend. If the 90 point difference stays for a week or two we might not see the miraculous run to #1, maybe to #2 then ;)

Every once in a while, over the past ten years, I have won a game. Statistically speaking I guess it's bound to happen. But then the real Groucho takes over and I lose the year as usual.

Well it was close before. I think "Meet the Blacks" made the difference.

I like my current position, but got the highest score on 4 out the 10 remaining movies. Don't like my chances.

i.hope clearly has the power to manipulate the minds of critics, which he only uses when it is clear he is losing. This is the only explanation for how he constantly starts off near the bottom and ends up near the top. :zonks:
