Did you miss the sub-clause of the by-law that stated quite clearly that "Ninjas shall do, take, and have what they will, especially where the Last Post is concerned"?

Grumpy old men don't need no stinkin' treaty. I've oft gotten the Last Post from Ninja and Old Broken Down Paramedics with ease, like just now.

Let's not start a war between the pros and cons of a Last Post. There's plenty of room for everyone.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Ah but the amendment added in 1993 at the Ninja,Old Paramedics,Short Order Cooks and Mop Handle Manufactures Conclave clarified the clause to read: "Where as the Last Post is of utmost importance and it's value is therefore incalculable it shall be stored in the shoe box full of second grade pictures and placed on the self of a closet owned by a Ms. Svenson in Norway. This action abrogated and made null any agreements prior to the conclave (other than the ones made in 1987) and disagreement is to be settled by mediation AND 'trial by fire'. The council of Kiwi Growers of New Zeeland and the International Potato Institute of Lima Peru shall hold three rotating chairs on the committee, the Bureau of semi aquatic water fowl of Sudan and the organization of ambidextrous albinos of Nebraska shall hold the remaining more conventional non rotating chairs." So I hope you see that I now have Last Post. Sin. WoE.

Now, that would be completely correct, if it was not for the Last Post Freedom Act (LPFA), which gives Last Post Rights to only people who "are or are not assassins". I fall under at least one of these categories, hence, it is within my powers to Take The Last Post.

<--Pulls up in non-descript sedan.

As I mentioned earlier I'm with the government. There's nothing to see hear, no treaties or implied agreements have been broken. (Listens to earpiece.)

For reasons of national security...I must secure the Last Post.

*A dark dank stone room somewhere in South East Asia* The Horror. The Horror..... They took the last post, but it was not the last post they took that took them; it was rather the last post that took what they took when they took the last post; that I took......... Sin WoE. *some where in south east Asia slowly going mad*

Francis Ford Copula/Joseph Conrad references will not save you. I cannot be disuaded from my mission to take and keep the Last Post.

What's he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet The Last Post,
I am the most offending soul alive.

Sin WoE.

"The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He can not only forgive; he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and mildness of character which imparts sufficient strength to take the last post and be put the past."

Grumpy Old Men don't need dueling modified quotes to get the Last Post either. See?

If not a Last Post thread, I think we need a central nexus thread that fulfills the same purpose that the Last Post once did.


Since the Last Post closed, the number of posts in the Misc. Discussion forum has dropped by something like a half, aye? It's vital to keep such a thread open to maintain the flow of interesting things going on.

To the Last Post I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my Last Post at thee. Sin WoE.
