She's... um... wrong.

I looked it up out of curiosity. She said it's impossible to receive oral sex while on your knees. When a guy replied that it is, in fact, possible, she asked if he was a giraffe.

Who invented the double entrendre for praying and oral sex: Madonna or Bono?

Ah it was a different thread.

But yeah, I just realised she leaves in the dark whether it's the man or woman on their knees. Always assumed it was about the woman standing up and man on his knees.

The other way around sounds... interesting.

I'm just amazed that in 2007 anyone was so unaware of deathbear that they took him seriously. Did that one get voted on already? The rich thread, that is.

Here's how round 2 is shaping up, for those curious:

1. Business Trips ... Are They Legit When There's Closing Involved ?? vs. anyone else really rich here? OR tuf bono respect
2. U2 at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein right now vs. IO: I'm going Powerjuice OR I hope Bono is ok small plane crashed in Manhattan
3. Psychic Readings: ask The Slow Loris anything about the new album here vs. IO: critical analyses here OR Rest of U2 Survivor: Pop - Round 1
4. Good Morning friends! vs. Biggest Grossing Tours Of All Time OR Why did Bono lie about this being a long album?
5. Space Moon v1 vs. Post here and I will give an archnemesis. OR Grumpy: The Collection
6. Change DUE from Admin/Mods vs. Jeff Goldblum dead too??
7. Bitch moan bitch moan vs. Ok, Rush vs U2 LIVE
8. Morrissey - a live nod to U2 at Glastonbury? vs. Tribute Bands Are The Enemies Of Art


As it should be, the closest and most potentially heartbreaking match is the last one, with two seeds that were right next to each other. The problem with that is that they're both TOO GOOD, and we're likely to have our finals in the quarterfinals. Otherwise, it looks pretty balanced. I think the final will still be good, just not as good as winner of match 1 and match 8 plans to be.

I've made a LOT of changes along the way, but changing the bracket would basically mean changing what went against what, and I can't do that.

I probably missed the bit where you worked out how to set up which threads against which other threads, but how have you worked it out? Is it random, or have you put threads you think will be equally popular together or...?

Basically, the template was March Madness-style high seed (lowest number) vs. low seed (highest number), with the assumption that the #1 seed would eventually play #2. Obviously, that doesn't work out perfectly because my perceptions of what would perform the best (1 should beat 32 and so on) aren't at all perfect, though I have been right often enough to justify the model (8-3 so far). I probably should have categorized the threads and matched them up accordingly instead of just guessing, but as we proceed, the model will matter less and less anyway because the quality of the competition will be so close. It'll just be good shit vs. other good shit.

It fell together like this:

ROUND 1

Match 1: Seed 1 vs. 32
Match 2: Seed 2 vs. 31
Match 3: Seed 3 vs. 30
Match 4: Seed 4 vs. 29
Match 5: Seed 5 vs. 28
Match 6: Seed 6 vs. 27
Match 7: Seed 7 vs. 26
Match 8: Seed 8 vs. 25
Match 9: Seed 9 vs. 24
Match 10: Seed 10 vs. 23
Match 11: Seed 11 vs. 22
Match 12: Seed 12 vs. 21
Match 13: Seed 13 vs. 20
Match 14: Seed 14 vs. 19
Match 15: Seed 15 vs. 18
Match 16: Seed 16 vs. 17

ROUND 2

Match 17: Match 1 winner vs. Match 16 winner
Match 18: Match 2 winner vs. Match 15 winner
Match 19: Match 3 winner vs. Match 14 winner
Match 20: Match 4 winner vs. Match 13 winner
Match 21: Match 5 winner vs. Match 12 winner
Match 22: Match 6 winner vs. Match 11 winner
Match 23: Match 7 winner vs. Match 10 winner
Match 24: Match 8 winner vs. Match 9 winner

QUARTERFINALS

Quarterfinal 1: Match 17 winner vs. Match 24 winner
Quarterfinal 2: Match 18 winner vs. Match 23 winner
Quarterfinal 3: Match 19 winner vs. Match 22 winner
Quarterfinal 4: Match 20 winner vs. Match 21 winner

SEMIFINALS

Semifinal 1: Quarterfinal 1 winner vs. Quarterfinal 4 winner
Semifinal 2: Quarterfinal 2 winner vs. Quarterfinal 3 winner

FINAL: Semifinal 1 winner vs. Semifinal 2 winner

Cool... Not familiar with March Madness but I'll take your word for it. Was the seeding determined by the number of nominations or something?

In some cases, yes (Sexual Messages got a bunch of nominations, which is why it wound up as high as it did, only to lose). Others by broadness of appeal (Business Trips being the top seed instead of something like Shuttlecock) or historical significance (Fake Edge). It's incredibly subjective, but also based on a consistent set of criteria. I mean, a couple of these threads aren't THAT entertaining, but they mean a lot to people. I tended to place them lower because they really fell short in a number of areas, though they would be guaranteed some love.
