Through random acts of violence and coercion, we (the demi-gods) intend to recrtuit furthar members to our cause: the furtherance of Macrumors. Next in the firing line: Mischief.

Mischief, you're a regular poster, a source of inspiration to others, and should be a good example to those who follow (well, two out of three isn't bad ;))

Join the demi-gods, NOW!!!



You have been warned. We shall not let up, till you give in and be join the collective.

Seeings how its the weekend, he probably wouldn't be able to attain demi-godhood before monday. We shall not let him escape though. :mad:

Maybe he considers his blatant disregard of all that is Good and Right to be some form of 'Thinking Different'. Totally unacceptable, of course. I will look into gathering the rabid badgers, if someone can give me the address to send them to him. (In a cheery box labeled, "Stay on the bleeding edge") or we could poke him in the eye with a pointy stick... but I prefer the badgers.

Badgers are good, but I'm thinking rabid skunks, for the lingering suffering.....

Geesh, Mischief, just buy a mug and be done with it! I did, and now everyone thinks I'm WAY smarter than I am, and it scores points on those lonely nights at the coffee shop when you've stuck yer dollar in the public web access computer, log onto MacRumors, and drag people over to see your name with "Demi-God" next to it.

What else does one need in life?!:)

Badgers??? BADGERS??? We don't need no stinking badgers.... [/Mexican accent] LOL

I fully support the nagging of mischief until he ponies up for the mug... I mean, sheesh dude, it's ONLY $30. Considering a college student could do it, and not go hungry that week (I've been to college so I know who tight money can be at times... books or dinner... dinner or beer... too many decisions :D), you really MUST do it and join the ranks of Demi-Gods.

Well, if he is forced onto one with hexpee home edition, that would happen after 30 days if he doesn't tell m$ everything they want to know about him (scary thought from both sides of that exchange).

I cant believe ya'll would take someone mac and give them an eMachine.....geez...we're tryin to get him to pay.

I wouldnt wish an emachine on anyone...especially not anyone from this site, mostly ;)

Depends on what you consider soon enough... for some, that's not soon enough :D... I went and did it before it was the thing to do. Both eyelikeart and I ordered up our mugs at about the same time, but I think mine arrived a day or two before his (go figure).

I didn't go for the pies (that can be too messy, and I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of his vengence) or the xp computer *shudder*. I would only wish xp (home edition) on my worst enemies, which I am secretly working on replacing their Mac systems with poc's running xp to see if they notice :D. I've found that nagging someone can get the result you want easier, faster, and cheaper (you don't have to purchase all those pies or spend the $$ for the hexpee thingy). Plus, they could ignore you, but the more voices that you have nagging the person, the less chance they can ignore it. :D

For all of those trying to find incentive to become a Demi-God, keep this in mind:

Being a Mac Rumors Demi-God really pulls the chicks!

Or guys, depending on your preference... either way, you will surely get lucky with the person of your dreams when you become a Demi-God.

Post your favorite quotes from Mischief in the past, id start it off but there are some of you out there that know him far better than me so ill need to search out the ones I liked.

Or if not the best of how about posting a quote of the last time you got flamed by mischief.

GUys, we have a few hours till he gets here. He lives in CA...I'm in NY, I just got up to get ready for the day and it's only 8:40am....


If he's up now it'll be 5:40am, and I doubt that's likely...

We just gotta make sure its near the top for the next few hours, he'll definately see it then....

Step out for a weekend of frustration, sunburns and drunkeness and you burn the castle down cuz I won't come out of the room I'm not in. Funny stuff.

A few questions:

- WTF is the VPG in DGVPG?

-Why didn't anyone quote my witty self as someone was cool enough to suggest? (choke, sniff)

- Are you actually suggesting that Peer-pressure is a worthy stimulus for changing behaviour?

- Which one of you would like to explain to my boss (who owns the G4 BTW) why I can't draft on an e-machine?

- Would ANY of you be silly enough to engage moi in a pie fight?? (huge evil grin):D

- How soon does my ststus change after I purchase, oh Moderator Dukestreet?

(and of course) Why would a GOD want to become a demi-god? ( Okay, now I'm just jerking your collective chains.....:D )

I'll take on a few of these.

VPG? well you need to be a demi-god to find out, that's the way it works, sorry.

peer pressure is a good start, but your own sense of what is right should take over....

it takes a day or two if you let it take its own course. But if you email arn with confirmation, it happens as soon as he can make the change.

So you going to join the ranks?

2) no quote because I don't know...I didn't start the thread...talk to duke or someone else...

3) if the peer pressure doesn't work, we'll just pie u to death... :eek:

4) hey, no one to blame but yourself on getting an eMachine...he he he...

5) I'd be willing to organize a pie-ambush...couldn't let u know it was coming...come on now... ;)

6) your status changes as soon as arn gets the chance to verify the purchase & change it himself...

7) I don't know man...I don't even work here!

Numbers, mischief, numbers. Us demi-gods are united in a cause. We need you. We can wait till the 18th, but just go borrow the money, and wire it to Arn. Send him a money order. Just do it.

Beware of pie fights. You will not be able to handle the barrage.

Close but no ceegar, mi amigo.

It actually translates to "Mischief should stop making excuses and pay up already"*.:eek:

I've specifically trained my triggerfish to shoot a chemically altered whipped cream mixture that bonds with the skin on contact...nasty stuff...I suggest you avoid their wrath.:p


*For anyone wondering, the name actually means "Fish with a pig-like nose"...although in this context that still seems like a joke.:D

We need him to join the ranks more then the dog needs food. They can always feed the dog table scraps for a few weeks, or other small furry animals that wander into the yard :D...

Hell, I'm looking at the frosted and SST mugs now... I just want to see what else comes up this month before I do. I might be getting a new fishing rig, so that I can go with my niece and nefew and teach them how to fish. Then again, the MR stuff might take priority... :D I need to feed the addictions...
