The person above me doesn't realize we can't have threads like these.

The mods generally allow them in the off-topic forum unless the thread gets stupidly out of hand.

But I'm confused how you can have a person below you game. Are you supposed to say a random trait and hope that there is someone on the forum who meets that description and that they will post? What if I say, "The person below me is a whining narcissist." That would probably kill the thread because no one would want to have themselves labeled as a whining narcissist. What if I say, "The person below me is a unicorn." Again, thread over because there are no such things as unicorns. But really, the point is moot because, in fact, there isn't anyone below me. How can I say anything about someone who doesn't exist? It's an existential puzzle.

Dude. Have you gone full Brony? Never go full Brony.

EDIT: and now I'm really confused because now there IS someone below my first post, but how could I have possibly known on advance who it would be? My mind is spinning.

What no. Carrie was marathoning that show like whoa, and Brony's are a good chunk of where her profits comes from. Also my brother-in-law is a Brony. So I'm informed of the terminology.

Plus I'm on twitter/facebook/DA. These terms show up a lot.

I'm posting below the topic creator.

But the topic creator is below me.

The topic creator is not below you. Snob. But I do wish that the topic creator had said how this game is played. Because I'm serious - I don't understand how I can say something about the person below me until there actually is a person below me, but if I wait until they post and then say something, they are the person above me. Wait! I guess I could go back and edit my post once I know who posts after me. I'm sure I'm making this a lot more complicated than it really is.

Until they post, then they'll be somewhere below me and it will ring with a tinge of truth rather than arrogant bullshit.

Unless you consider post per page and I need to re-iterate it when we get to the next one.

I didn't read the ROE when I signed up (Because claiming ignorance is obviously a great solution).

Anyways, it's a magical ship, each time someone does something on it, it rises to the surface. Its form cackling over the rest of the forum.
