Nah, l reckon on rule 39, subsection 2b, Little Shepton Convention, that's disallowed.

Start again?

Sorry MAN but afaik the Hannibal Wiggans Memorial Bylaw doesn't apply here. I think Sol is pulling a fast one.

You can of course be second though :-)

If Sol tried to pull a Fast 1 and you spotted her she failed so we didn't start again. So wear R we?

I think the First 2 wins were disallowed under Little Shepton Convention 39/2b and 39/c respectively. The Hannibal Wiggins Memorial Bylaw is irreverent and post 8 should stand.

Little Shepton Convention 39/C is the Hannibal Wiggins Memorial Byelaw. After that most famous flouter of 39/C, Hannibal 'ok' Wggins himself. And post 4 is an absolutely flagrant example of the sorts of things he used to get up to. *Gives kea a hard stare*

Sadly, M a n, I think you'll find that you have fallen afoul of Much Pigpen's 1907 revision of the game rules and that under Appendix 500042 post 8 is disallowed. Similar to the 1966 situation with John Flanting in the car park of the Red Lion on Nov 24th which cost him the Cup of course. Shame, but there it is.

I don't know what you think John Flanting was up to in the car park of the Red Lion a month before Christmas forty some years ago but even if he was caught In flagrante delicto it has no bearing on the situation here with post 8 or post anything. You seem to have forgotten that the Official Government Line of the Day was that No Wrongdoing Had Taken Place. And Sunny Jim Callaghan promised the Whirled not to devalue. (But did anyway and he did not pass GO and did not collect £200 until later when no-one was looking.)

Admittedly this leaves the Fowl Pigpen but wasn't his Appendix removed a while back?
<p>&lt;p&gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&amp;amp;nbsp;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/p&gt;</p>
<p>&lt;p&gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;M a n&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;/p&gt;</p>

I thought it was his appendage?

Anyway, while I agree with Sol that your post 8 is disqualified, she grossly misinterprets the case for the Hannibal Wiggan Memorial Bylaw at the same time as maligning his character. Wiggan was considered by many to be the great hero of that era, and if it wasn't for his cutting edge work we're all be the poorer now and severly limited in our activities. Unless one can produce the required 3 independant adjudicators* to rule on the HWMB, then my post 4 stands and I win (actually I probably still win on post 1).

*and you can look the relevant policy up yourselves, because to me it's self evident.

You can't do that Fizzy. I'm sure Sol will be able to link to the relevant rules, but otherwise it's known as cheating <tongueout>

Ha, ha, good one Haragai (although someone needs to post on that thread pointing out that wiki isn't the HHGG (Earth Edition), it's the Encyclopedia Galactica: more informative and accurate, but much more dull ;-)

Now now, kea, you know that the 'independent adjudicators' gambit was oulawed after the out of cheese Rawlington vs Boggoff incident of '97.

However, it's all moot, as M a n's invoking of Sunny Jim Callaghan clearly resets the game until post 20.

Sol - its obvious from the context that you were not talking in Base 10, but Base13, thus your pre-knowledge of the final outcome of this contest to be the first to post is called into question...

I think that you have all failed to keep abreast of the ratification of the UN 'merlin2011,subsectionh2g2,addendum u180314' into international law

which seemingly unbeknownst to you has been roundedly applaused, shepharded, herded, dictated through all legal process known to nation states and peoples in the whirled

it has also become a touchstone for internet law, those established now, and those that may be decided off the back of a super-injunction or some such in the future

it says, the next person here with a clean towel wins

(if you have any complaints about procedures your only option is the Court of Appeal)
