Epic thread patch contest! UPDATED - All gone! Thanks for participating! Answered

I seem to be flush with all these shiny patches! They're burning a hole in my pocket, and I can't wait to give them away.

So here's the deal: start or reply to an epic thread on this topic. Comment exchanges that are Epic in some way (epically funny, epically fail, epically thoughtful, epically intelligent, involving epic numbers of staff (where staff number > 0 = EPIC) or any other kind of epic) win all epic participants patches!!

Exchanges on other topics or instructables - published AFTER 7/24 10:12 PM Central time - are also eligible for submission, but comments on here are preferred. ;)

So go on, make my day with an epic posting!

UPDATE

Wow, you guys are pretty epic!! I've got two epic patches left to give - I'm going to make you work much, much harder for the last two. ;)

Last epic patches go to especially epic posts. You have to make me either literally laugh out loud or cry (or both). Seeing as how this is a more demanding requirement, the prize is a little sweeter - I'll give you any * patch you want!

*see instructables TOS for pertinent exceptions

UPDATE: All gone! Wow! Ya'll are really epic!!

Attempting is not a good idea. You have run out of patches.

If DJ wins a patch because of the Sparta line, give me the patch 'cause he stole that line from me. He just made it more 1337.

Good.

Haha, true, but I invent that particular combination of the epicness that is Leonidas and Mr.T, though =P

Oh and, while this might not be the right place to say it, I'm sorry. After thinking about it for 3 hours, I remembered that I did said something along the lines of that, in mid-2008. I just wanna say I'm sorry for calling you a liar and all. I just hope that you will retain your previous, better opinion about me, because technically speaking I said that a year ago, when I was still kind of an "a-hole". Yeah, I'm admitting it.

So yeah, sorry for calling you a liar, and I hope we're cool again. All I ask of you is to reply to my comments if necessary and don't block me in the chatroom. What I'm saying is, hear me out. =)

Eh, fine... Oh and do you mind telling Jake to go a little easy on me regarding the chatroom banning? I figured he might be kinda hard on me for something I said on-site and not the chatroom almost over a year ago that might possibly not even be directed at his good friend (you). Yes, I did kinda snapped at bumpus, but it's because he banned me without even giving me a reason as to why he does that, so I don't think that really counts.

No. I get full patch. Yes, I didn't start the Sparta meme, but you got that particular line from me. Made it better? All you did is used it without giving me any credit and replaced letters with symbols.

Well, regardless of all the foolishness, laughs, failed attempts, and strangeness on these comments, there is but one overlooked Epic quantity.

One which despite any shortfalls, still rains true in more eyes than just mine.

For a friend is a precious thing, which can be found at a bus stop, or on the other side of the world. We are blessed to have this site, and the internet it lingers within. Uniting creative people.

People try to be 'epic', some are 'epic win', some 'epic fail' but let me say this.

The most truly Epic thing I can see on this page is you.

Well, if I were pro, I would award you the patch from the Societe of Advancement of Obscure Latin Catchphrases Saved from Obscurity Through Random Use in Gregariously Extensive Forum Threads for the placement of ad hominem as a rebuttal for numpty-calling. BTW, shouting ad hominem in a crowded public space may cause fear and panic and would probably be inadvisable.

It's only time before the earth dies because of man... Either that or man will kill himself because of money, religion, greed and power. It's so sad and pathetic, but what can you do when you're just another drop in this vast ocean.
