        o.O

        Broacher, you're a weirdo. But congrats on the 10k! Not that you care, but can't hurt to congratulate.

          Congrats on 10K Broacher! I'm fly-by posting, but I found you a picture of 10,000 monies with a cat on it:

                  I wish I could be a large white furry monster that frolics in fields...ah well.

                  Happy 10k! Here's a picture of a wild jungle girl/guy. (included both in case you're sexually ambiguous )

                    Dang you Broach, I had decided to ignore your 10K given your long held disdain for post parties including your own previous ones.

                    10K is indeed a bunch of posts, 10,000 things you thought important enough to share with the rest of us. I'm pretty sure I've read most of them, some were weird some were angry some were snarky and a hell of a lot were very helpful. I appreciate them all, the GDF wouldn't be the same without you.

                    A whole bunch of those posts were funny as well which is demonstrated by the following collection that your fellow forum members thought were "quote worthy"

                    If it was me, I'd stay away from it. Some fonts, you know--nothing but trouble.

                    And you know, when you think about, we middle-aged guys know more about sprouting unusual threads from various parts of our bodies than most other people.

                    "This is a test of the Emergency Graphic Design System. The marketers of this product, in voluntary cooperation with the Federal, State and local authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an actual graphic design emergency. If this had been an actual graphic design solution, with proper attention made to balance, readability, compelling concept, copy, execution-- the total kneejerk solution you see here would have been replaced with actual design, creativity and recognition that our readers are not complete morons. This concludes this test of the Emergency Graphic Design System. Thank you.

                    Oops gotta go. The neighbour's cat is in the compost again. The catnip gets 'em everytime. Gotta hurry so I can stick the lid on and give it a good shaking. Later!

                    It would be a package of challenging mini-games built around achieving excellence at avoiding physical exertion and alternately, training to increase one's capacity for junk food consumption.

                    We plan to include special proprietary Wii-Fatt controller enhancement hardware to make the games more enjoyable (and help justify our outrageous profits). Essentially, it's a block of wood with a velcro patch on it. And a piece of opposite tape for the controller itself. Our plan is that you don't want to move the actual controller, just push the buttons.

                    We've got a tentative list of mini-game ideas for this that we're somewhat actively discussing but we could always use (aka steal) more.

                    Anyone?

                    Picture your 'average' girl standing in front of you, wearing nothing but socks. Okay?

                    Now imagine an 'average' guy doing the same thing.

                    Now purely from a design perspective, which one makes you want to snort out loud with the goofiness of their appearance?

                    Case closed.

                    Maybe I'll spend it as 'hush money' to keep those HOW and Wired mag reporters out of my face for a bit.

                    We like people to believe that great design comes from years, nay -- decades of dedicated, and focused work in the field, and a constant commitment to the finer principals of this ancient profession.

                    The truth though...... it's a lot of sex. Yeah. There I've said it.

                    You see, real 'brilliant' creative juices can only flow from, well... you get the picture.

                    So... yeah, we've all learned to adapt to this requirement in order to maintain our high design standards. And everyone's a little different. Some prefer to contract out, others get it delivered on site. Some of us just learn to balance our lives around this demanding regime.

                    Oh, and not just 'regular' either. It turns out that the quality of the design is directly related to the quality of...

                    And sure, if you can afford the supermodel service plan...

                    Bit... well, I've said enough as it is. And there's... um, something under the desk I need to... work on, right now.

                    (Sheez, I sure hope I don't get in any trouble over letting this one out of the bag.)
