I just want to say how incredibly awesome Levitating Potato's poem is. I hope nobody posts anything after it.

Circumstances can force an end.
Let's say I choose "Things You Can Run Through", and I chose doors. Well eventually I'll have run through all of the doors that there are. OK, maybe that's not a good example, as I could just run through the same doors again. OK, so maybe I choose to run through crowds of people, eventually all of the crowds will go away, right? I can't force large groups of people to mill around all through the night, right?

While True: by shady grey August 29th, 2010 12:11 PM

My idea for this task at first was.... "I'll drink indefinitely!" Then I remembered my distaste for vomiting. Oh, that pun wasn't intentional, sorry. Anyway, I thought a pub crawl would be nice to do, but I never got around to doing it. Instead,...
