Being First is Important by Snively '11

There can be many firsts

Sometimes you should stop to identify all of the different pictures in an entry. We work hard to find pictures for you guys, and then we have to resize, upload, and link them in. I know I would appreciate it a lot if you would write the names of what’s in these pictures down and casually glance at the first letters.

You know, just in the spirit of things.

    I ended up with “FWAST COMMENTS” and was baffled. I mean, the fourth picture is obviously “Snoop Dogg.” Anyway, this is probably why I never did Mystery Hunt.

    Snively, I love your blogs. All the bloggers are awesome, but this blog was exceedingly amusing.

    Comments +1.

  11. I’d just like to congratulate PennHenn. The title of this post begged for a troll “FRST POST!1!LULZ!!limx->0sinx/x!!!11!!!!!,” but s/he instead commented with a relevant and syntactically valid response.

    I hate to be off topic but I have a question about the freshmany things. Is it possible to do Terrascope and F/ASIP (assuming you get into both)?

  13. You can’t always get what you want, but this time I’ll give it to you. smile Good luck on your finals!

    “Here is your comment”?
    I HATE YOU FOR HAVING MADE ME SIT AND COUNT ALL THE WAY UP TO THE 55TH LETTER.

    Seriously…I considered a billion other codes before coming back to that because I couldn’t believe you would actually sit around counting. Now I see one of the reasons the numbers got so large was that you insisted on not repeating any…still though…

  15. Avanti says:

    Okok, granted there are much more efficient ways to ‘count’, but I was too lazy.

    What’s up with the link from ‘many’?

  17. That was really neat. Hey Snively, do you guys use a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) kind of interface, like the type on Blogger, or do you have to crunch out HTML?

    Just curious.

    This is just brilliant!..lol..
