I'd feel a bit odd doing this myself, because I submitted it, but this is something I've wanted to do for a while now.

There's absolutely no reason not to do the tasks you propose. After all, why would you have submitted it if it didn't sound fun to you?

Of course. SFØ is based on interpretation of the task, interpret it as you wish.

It's all good.

Before last night I had never listened to Pelican. All I had to go on was that they were from Chicago, instrumental, metal, and people of discriminating taste in metal liked them. So I had to seek them out and acquire some. They played the Empty Bot...

The following has happened in winter 2006. I claim to have completed this task by building a giant magnet on a rope [evidence #1, #2]. Every single disk of rare earth magnet has a theoretical holding capacity of 100kg on a flat surface. This gives ...

Blame my mother for this proof's lack of scientific perfection, for it is HER fault that I am not the proud owner of an "actual" metal detector. Not only did she always refuse to buy me one, she also was disdainful of anyone in possession o...

Yesterday I was conversing with a friend of mine by way of the Internet, and I attempted to use the character 'è' which, he claims, came out on his end as some funky 'A' and an umlaut over nothing. Now, it may have passed by some of you whose sense...
