So, is Spongebrain Waters being racist when she howls for "all black people to back her up"?
Welcome to Ubersite!

I don't know what just happened.

There isn’t any real content here, just me ranting a bit. Since I have no other outlet to vent I will put it here.
Feel free to eject now if you like.

My phone rings

Me: “Hello, (Fallen) speaking”

Person: “Yeah, I was talking to (co-worker) and they looked up a part number f66df4g34s466ht31f (or some such bullshit)”

You may have noticed this guy did not say who he is what company he works for or what the part number was for. He did not give any such info.

Me: “um… what the hell are you talking about? What is that a part number of?”

Person: “It’s a part from Derp Inc. but it’s a bad number, it doesn’t exist. Just see if he can cross reference it over to a similar product from Herp inc.”

Me: “So You want him to cross that bad number to another similar manufacturer? What even is it supposed to be?”

Ignoring my attempt at getting any usable information, he goes on.

Person: “Yeah, just have him cross the number f66df4g34s466ht31f over to a….”

At this point I just pulled the phone away from my face and stared in disbelief. Am I faced with the real possibility of actually having to point out to this nameless guy on the phone the impossibility of what he is asking? This cant be real, it’s got to be a joke I’m thinking. I have no information or specifications of any kind on this product, outside of a completely useless part number, and he wants someone to find a substitution?
The problem solved itself, at least for me, as I hear on the phone.

Person: “…OK so just have him call me. Bye”

And hangs up.
No name
No info
No number
No nothing.

I’m going to the bar.

Wildman, Skrapmetal:

Not that you morons would believe me, since you are both accusing each other of being me, but here is the post from over a month ago, where I tell Sacrilicious who I am: www.ubersite.com/m/127755.

I used to post occasionally as Whore of Babylon using my old name, Anansie. Lishy recognized it immediately.

Yes, it's an odd coincidence, but there aren't exactly a lot of new posts on Uber these days so it wasn't like I had to sift through twenty before seeing my name pop up.

Jesus, this place is fucking stupid.

so why not make a post and under your own account and put Quizmaster in the title? Like uber-go-round or Gruberfest.
that way whomever wants to be quizmaster can run their own for as long as they want till they give the answer. all the guesses in one spot and all that.

It was just an idea to kill some time. If I'd know I was going to have to undergo a sort of Spanish Inquisition... *waggles index finger* Stop right there. I know what you're thinking, but you can put it right out of your head, me laddo. We will not be Pythoning up this thread.

Okay, this is why the internet is a bad thing. Out of curiosity (and not at all because I get off on these types of things) I did an image search for "masturbating cookie monster". About halfway down the page I was greeted to not one, but two pics of Sarah Palin... Really? Sarah Palin? What the actual fuck?

I remember that Tony the Tiger post! I haven't even been able to eat plain corn flakes since then. The nightmares have stopped, though.

agreed. you're going to have to look for that though. the last time I posted a pic like that it was of Tony the Tiger ...um frosting...a bowl of Frosted Flakes and I emotionaly scared a few users.

I dunno, FALLEN. Santorum's loneliness is indeed great.
I do think that a crying, pseudo-masturbating Cookie Monster would make a great mascot, though.

That's why I don't have a job talking on/answering phones. I substituted the annoyance of really stupid people with grueling physical labor, falling debris/tools/hardware, the likelihood that I'll lop off a digit before retirement and the slow, degrading destruction of most of the joints in my body.

It was a fair trade.

Dude, you should have waited to bring out your alter, I mean that's why you thought
noone would ever guess a alter-user name that's had only 2 reviews until now.
It's AMAZING "he" found this totally unrelated post with relevant reviews deep inside of it.
I'm still wondering who else has a user name with the first 3 letters being Who? and with
all that divisible crap?
As far as running a contest? I think I'll pass. I'm not stupid enough to run a game where
the: #1-"puzzlemaster" can't be authenticated #2- The clues can't be authenticated as coming from the
"puzzlemaster" #3-Any success can't be authenticated as coming from the "puzzle-master".
Nothing can be authenticated, and if, by some miracle it is, it's gone in a day.
Why not do it in a post like it should be done?
-----
WoB is not my alter; I immediately suspected that it's yours, actually, because no one but you had ever even mentioned WoB and he/she/it amazingly showed up right in the middle of our conversation.

I ran the contest in the Uberboard specifically because it wasn't that complicated a thing to guess if all the clues were laid out in a row and doing it in a post would be the same ol' boring same ol'. By putting it in the Uberboard, the clues appear randomly and if someone wanted to make preliminary guesses or wanted to confuse the issue, they could do so. Makes the puzzle harder and more fun. I asked that the final guesses be put in a post so the winner could be determined and the prize properly sent, and so that someone would post something.

There are ten letters in my username. 10+2=12, which is divisible by 2,3,4, and 6
"Who" is the first word in the puzzle.
Most of the clues that started with the word "Who" were directed toward the answer.
See? Not that complicated.

If you don't want to run a contest, that's OK. I think we've moved on to riddles and hijacking FALLEN posts anyhow.

I correctly "guessed" the "puzzlemaster" as: Whore of Babylon.
It wasn't expected by WoB and the "contest" turned to shit immediately.
I held off on the "rest of the answers" in the hope more people would
participate. Didn't happen. The only "thing" WoB was interested in was how I did it.

Read this review with the knowledge that your guess of the Puzzlemaster was wrong, and ask yourself if you'd believe it if someone else wrote it. But hey, if you want to say you won, then it's your turn to run the Puzzle. Go whenever you're ready.

I get this from clients all the time. "Here's a closeup picture of a bruise and a closeup picture of a car bumper. The case is going to trial tomorrow. Can you tell me how fast the car was going, why the driver didn't see the pedestrian, in the next 2 hours, for free?" Maybe, no, maybe, absolutely not even a little bit you cheap bastard.
