Late for Our Own Party
2007.11.20 (Tue) 13:03

Happy birthday...The astute readers out there (attention religiosos and woos: this doesn't tend to include you) may have noticed that November 19 was the third anniversary of the Two Percent Company. Even the non-astute readers (dipshits included) surely realized that we didn't manage to get a post up.

What can we say? It's been a rough year for blogging. We've gone through the list of various things that have taken up our time already, so we won't do so again here, but suffice it to say that the list hasn't gotten any shorter. We've tried to get back into Ranting a few times when we thought we saw things opening up; but each time, our windows were short-lived, and we again fell silent.

We've been keeping up with comments, and some of our e-mails, but since Ranting tends to require lots of research, it has unfortunately been preempted by that pesky "real life" thing. While we'd like to say that we see the light at the end of the tunnel, we've said that before...and been proven wrong. So for now, we'll just say that we're still here, we're still kicking, and we still plan to make a full return. We just don't have the foggiest exactly when that might be.

Thanks to all who have commented, and all who have dropped us lines. Even if we haven't responded, we have read everything we've received, and we have followed your links and either laughed or cried along with you. We're sorry that we haven't had more time these past months, and we truly hope that the future will allow us the luxury of returning to our old form. It could happen next week, next month, or not for a while.

Until then, our site isn't going anywhere, and neither are we. Now kindly excuse us, if you will, as we quietly blow out the candles on our slightly stale cake and slip off to take care of other business.

— The Two Percent Company.

Good to see you are still there. I'm sure we all eagerly await your return. Oh, and you misspelled dipshit.



Tom from the Two Percent Company, 2007.11.23 (Fri) 09:47 [Link] »

Late for our own party and we typoed a swear word? Fuck, maybe we should pack it in.

Typo fixed. Thanks, Agent X.

Happy birthday fellas!

Have no doubt that you have been sorely missed in your absence.

Bit of a party in Aus tonight. We've just rid ourselves of our local Republican types. PM looks like he's going to lose his seat too. Hahahahahaha.



Darthcynic, 2007.11.24 (Sat) 20:56 [Link] »

Best wishes lads your insight has been missed, hope you're back soon.



dikkii, 2007.11.25 (Sun) 10:40 [Link] »

Well done on three years of blogging. Here's to three more years.



Tom Foss, 2007.12.01 (Sat) 20:35 [Link] »

Happy belated bloggiversary, 2%ers. I hope you're all doing well, whether or not you can make with the regular ranting. Life > blogging.

It's been 3 brilliant years, here's to many more!



Harold Bloom, 2007.12.04 (Tue) 22:15 [Link] »

To the two best guys I know, here, Bwatwak, or anywhere in between...

To three more!



American Fuck Heads, 2008.03.29 (Sat) 00:47 [Link] »

The two percent co:

2% intellect (any fucking Kook can hide behind MS Word and its thesaurus)

98% BULL FUCKING SHIT

GET A LIFE YOU FUCKING AMERICAN ASS PUNCHING FAGGOTS

I HOPE SOME TOWEL HEAD NUKES ALL YOUR FUCKING DUMB ASSES



Tom S. Fox, 2008.03.29 (Sat) 06:10 [Link] »

Hey, Fuck Head, appropiate name!



Tom from the Two Percent Company, 2008.03.29 (Sat) 10:17 [Link] »

Like most dipshits who toss insults our way, this one seems completely incapable of actually countering any of our arguments. But we're the idiots, right? Thanks for playing, but please don't comment here again if you have no actual content to offer.

As a note, we don't use Microsoft's thesaurus (or any other thesaurus). When you have an actual vocabulary, it isn't necessary. We tend to write in Notepad++ (which doesn't have a thesaurus), and on the rare occasion that we've used Microsoft's checking tools (spelling, thesaurus, and the worst of the lot — grammar), we've found them incredibly useless. In fact, we're willing to bet that a lot of what we write would cause little colored lines to appear all over our posts if we pasted them into Word.

But thanks, fuckhead, for reminding us that America hasn't cornered the ignorant moron market.



Bronze Dog, 2008.03.30 (Sun) 15:11 [Link] »

I certainly don't see any warning signs of thesaurus use by the 2%ers. They write pretty much normally.

Personally, though I don't see what the point behind such evasions is. "You use big words!" So? The points remain valid, and using normal vocabulary isn't haughty. Even if somehow it comes across as such, who cares?
