Meh, you'd never make a good government minister. A correct press release would be as follows.

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen, members of the press. Gerbil affairs are perfectly fine, anyone who says otherwise is a traitor and should be shot. Thank you for your time, please be sure to pick up your press copy of "Why Everything Is Fine" on your way out. Good Evening."

I pay taxes, just not a lot. I only get $12.00 in Federal taken outta each check. At tax time, I'll get it all back. That's why I'm "not paying taxes" - because I'm a po' foke wit three chitlins.

Good.

Now that Hawking has become a Minister of Gerbil Affairs you can kindly direct people to the fact that I don't work here.

Indeed, that is a good idea, it would be cool to have a unique title. Everyone here now wants to be like ryu. 8)

Heh, that's the problem with special favors. I hand them out to one person and pretty soon everyone is clamoring for them like they were candy. ;)

I'm gonna start talking to the other admins and see if we can't get some guidelines for us with regard to handing out special titles. Most likely it would involve contributing something substantial to TR as a whole (like Howard's organized get-togethers) or in Ryu's case, past articles which made an impact (coinage of the term "Darth Via").

Yeah, I tried to invite you to a game once, but you weren't on. My Live! account is inactive now. The card I used for it a year ago isn't active anymore and I've been too lazy to change it ..sooo..
