The drunk thread will open when Blue Dog opens it. He will do it whenever he feels like it, as usual. This happens on Friday sometime usually. The drunk thread will close whenever somebody - often Chater - closes it. He will do it whenever he wants, as usual. This happens on Monday sometime usually. The reason I chose this is because I do not want any fucking retarded PMs about "so when you say Midnight is that Midnight Eastern or like at the International Date Line? And what about daylight savings time? What about leap seconds?" FUCK OFF. I am a computer scientist. I am going to use a simple algorithm. I am going to look at the drunk thread when it closes. Anything posted on the Suggestion Board between the first post time and the last post time will run. Anything posted outside that window will be treated as an ordinary suggestion and will be reviewed for potential posting after the contest. If nearly four days is not enough to post your brilliant thread idea and you start bitching about how the drunk thread closed too early and you missed your chance, you are too dumb to post here. As a moderator, I can make that dream a reality for you. Don't make me.
