Pesci? Do you mean Joe Pesci? For a second I thought that @pesco had spat on Elmo and was really confused.


#3

Just corrected the headline with my awesome, previously unused forum superpowers. Feels good.


#4

How does one get such god-like powers?


#5

Pfft, some God. The site itself still remains fully Pesco’d.

Lol. Now we have to make a video of Pesco spitting on Elmo: “Am I here for your amusement? Fuck you, you … rag”


#7

Oh! You should make it one of those Elmos that apparently harass tourists in Times Square! @pesco can rumble with a Times Square Elmo!!! You’d get tons of hits!!!


#8

Is this why this is Dizzy and not Boing now? @beschizza

A Pesco post has the same issue.

Don’t know. Maybe Discourse is getting more sophisticated with how it slots content pushed by wordpress


#10

I blame Times Square Elmo… clearly, it’s a conspiracy that needs to be explored!

Basically, be a super-active member of the community for 100 days, and stay that active to keep the powers.

For context, there are ~8000 people who have attained level 1, of which ~3000 are level 2, and 37 are Level 3, including telecinese:

It’s simple to do, but not easy.


#12

Grinding to level 3.

True. A lowercase-g lesser god, for sure. But a cool, obscure one, like Siris.

It was like this when I found it, I swear.


#13

I’m wondering about what I’m missing to be on that list? Maybe I don’t read enough? Huh…

Pro tip: read the “do you want to play questions” thread, top to bottom. It will be a long, gruesome journey, but it might be the only thing keeping you from the IMO very difficult 25% posts read stat and true enlightenment.*

Dude… I had like the 2 post on that thing… Or Third maybe. No… I had the first response to the thread, actually. I just went and looked.


#16

Yeah I have scratched my head a few times when seeing that you are not on the regular list. I was quite surprised to find myself there.


#17

Just to nitpick-- I’m not hearing “obnoxious” (as stated in the post). Sounds to me like: “We’ve never had such a violent-- a violent celebrity on Sesame Street, ever!”


#18

Cue my favorite George Carlin routine, when George decided to Pray to Joe Pesci, because he got better results!


#19

It looks like Pesci was channelling Trump, what with that coiffure.


#20

What would it cost to get Pesci to take a hit on Elmo?
