Some people take stuff like this to be an excuse to... well, you know. Just like the time I was in Boston. Let me tell you, it was a long time ago. The Statue of Liberty hadn't been built yet. And there I was, and along comes a young woman, and she's carrying a ladder. So I ask her what the ladder is for, and she asks me to hold the ladder for her while she climbs up and checks something up on the roof. I think it was about gulls or something. I used to hate gulls...
Who you calling superhero and being ironic? Eh? I will have you know I killed fifty men in the Great War! Funny about that... Let's see now, we were in, um, somewhere in Alabama, fighting hard against the... *headscratch* the thugees, and... um. Did you know I won the state lottry once?
The next poster didn't.

Why is being old a bad thing o great grognard?
Why it's bad to be old? Let me tell you why, young whippersnapper! You know how dogs lift their leg when they pee, right? Well, as it turns out, there are squirrels who do that too. At least we had them when I was a kid. Then, of course, came the war, and...
Well. Time for a nap.
Yes. I remember when presidents did what they should, by jove! They beat up the Brits! None of this namby-pamby "social security", "chicken in every pot" or tolerance for PETA stuff. Yeah, and no newfangled oil business. America needs to get back to classic, well tested businesses like whaling!
The next poster has some suggestion for my platform.
Pfeh. You youngsters have no appreciation for REAL roleplaying. When I started playing with GG and DA, it was hard to have your fighting man survive, lemme tellya. And every room contained a damn good reason to roll initiative. Plus we didn't have the stats in the wrong order. And we died, and made new characters, and we fought 5-50 nixies, and we liked it!
... What was the question again?

Yeah, you better get off Grampa's lawn or... Ummm...
Whatever it was, it was probably some young whippersnapper's fault. Pshaw.
Yeah. The grassier, the better. There was some guy that looked like the prez there, too, only he died when he was shot by four meter tall lizards. Wazzat? Evidence? Well, sure, I got it all on photo. You mean someone should have given that to the police? Hmmm, I guess. I did think he looked an awful lot like the prez... Oh well, I am sure nobody cares anymore.
The next poster cares.
