If they needed you five days ago, then there's no reason to worry. You can't change the past after all.

You should feel guilty tho.

Thanks, that really makes me want to actually check my emails or whatever else my family and friends try's to make use to talk with them.

Maybe I'll just delete it all and run off to the mountains, if anything I think that'd make Kannap happy.

The worst that is likely to happen is that you have to start a reply to an email with "forgive my late reply, I've been busy".

With genuine emergencies, people often call or text saying "check your emails, dammit" you if they don't get a reply within a short length of time. Otherwise, it's probably not desperate.

I wouldn't worry.

Going incommunicado can be a good way to recharge.

Ah, I never promised you wouldn't have emails.

Just that they probably wouldn't be emergencies.

Enjoy writing 130 "forgive my late reply" messages (though mass deletion can work, too :twisted: )

A part of me thinks it would be much much easier to hit top 5 world-wide for Pizza Delivery with the old issues system.

How many issues do we have now? Over 500?

Its getting really hard statistically to game the stats in obvious ways. I've been dismissing issues for entire days because my guess is that the options wouldn't reliably advance the Pizza Delivery stat.

Somehow doubling all the drugs into all of the waters throughout the nation increased Pizza Delivery by 1.5 percent.

But at this rate I'm not going to be able to break into the top 10 for another month and the nations still ahead don't spike up.

We have 1225 issues currently. It's not unreasonable to suppose more will be added.

I would imagine that the lifting of all restrictions on pornography would increase pizza delivery even more.

Some people have no sense.

You undoubtedly heard about the guy the Mets called up from the minors who took an Uber ride from Philly to Shea (I know it's not called that anymore but fuck corporate sponsorship), got lost in the stadium trying to find the clubhouse, and then hit a three-run homer?
