  • Eh, Geminis happen. We’ve all been there. You’re going about your day, fruning with your chronies, and then all of a sudden, in spans your Elder, here to troll you YET AGAIN and there’s nothing you can do about it because he knows you know he knows how it went the first time around, so you just sit there and take it, because Second friggin’ Maxim.

    And you DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, EVER ask your Elder why he isn’t wearing any pants.

        And just to prove that I can descend down an infinite rabbit-hole of increasingly-obscure nerdery: I even knew about it before K:BDH.
