Wacky news that makes you go "wtf?"
 
Hello fellow GIMPSy people,
This thread is dedicated to wacky news. Knowing my misfortune, I bet I will find a thread that is dedicated to the same or similar thing after I post this :lol:

Anyways,

Flouran,

I don't see that those references have anything to do with news about me.

Please don't stray off-topic when you use my name.

Dear Richard,
I am sorry, but I did not know there was a user on mersenneforum with the name Wacky.

My apologies,

Don't worry.

I'm just "pulling your chain"
