The Peter 5 Charitable Foundation watch

    Hi there.

    Over the months, the people of this forum have been good to me. Maybe they gave me rep I didn't deserve (feel free to take it back), or in some cases, even subbed me for long periods for little to no reason.

    But you see, a strange fact hit me recently. Not everyone on TSR is a subscriber! I know, it shocked me too. You see, some people on here lack credit cards, cash, or time; the very instruments needed to buy one for themselves.

    So: what do I propose?

    The Peter 5 Charitable Foundation

    On TSR, there may be a whole group of people that wouldn't mind subbing people- but who, for the love of God, who? At the same time, there may be many that want to be subbed, but just can't, for the reasons above. Thus, this charity seeks to match those with cash, with those that deserve it most.

    By posting below, you can apply either to be a benefactor or charity case, lists of whom will be posted below if this idea ever gets off the ground. When a person applies to be a benefactor, the most deserving charidee case will then be found, and they will have subscription paid for, simply through being great.

    It is also hoped that, in order to keep this going, those who benefit from free subs will later (when they have the means) sign up as benefactors, so that others may also benefit in the same way as they have. In memory of englishstudent paying for my first ever sub, I will naturally add myself to the list of wonderful and generous people.

    Ladies and gentlemen, like Bill Gates, I'm going all generous in my old age. I hope more of you will join me, and give some of the nice people a home in the Back Room.

    :tsr:

    Think of it like a private school's scholarship system. We want more good people subbing.

    As I scrape the last drop of bitter gruel from my unwashed bowl, and gaze aimlessly, hopelessly out of my window, across the polluted, desolate ghetto of Godalming, Surrey, I feel empty inside. But this emptiness is not caused by hunger. No. It is caused by my status as a non-subscriber on TSR. Oh why God, why? Why do you punish me so?!

    Sub me, and I will once again be completed, as a person.

    Good question... I think yes. But give them all a fair hearing, and maybe even give it to someone you don't know.

    Just answer the question, "How great are you?"...
    How great am I? Well, I would say out of the entire universal, not at all - there are people worse then me people who are better I am one in a trillion. Yet I struggle on through my everyday exsistance trying to do some good - hoping to make someone's day.

    If people ask me to do something I am a complete sucker and will ALWAYS say yes, even if it hinders me - I get a kinda rush from helping people - yet this in itself does not make me great as I do it partly for myself (and partly in hope that one day someone will ask me why I do it and I will have the courage to say - because Jesus Died for YOU)

    If I was great I would be a prodegy with buckets full of money and a car - yet I am not great whatsoever - thats why I cant pay for myself to be a sub - I'm just an ordinary girl who has a habit of watching bad girls!

    If you sub someone else, they may offer you even more.*

    Oh, are we supposed to be taking this that seriously?

    "How Great Am I?" This is a question that's plagued philosophers for decades, centuries, even. You might think "Is it even possible to measure the exact greatness of TSR Member Mr. Fox?"

    This is where the concept of infinity comes in. Ten million geniuses on ten million typewriters, working for the duration of infinity, could not produce a forum post as exciting, as greatness-displaying as Mr. Fox.

    Whilst those geniuses would produce the entire works of Shakespeare an infinite number of times, they would never even come close to matching my sheer brilliance.

    The End. Sub me, or else you shall be smote by God. Or something.
