Red Star Question

How long does it take to get a red star? I made the paypal payment Sunday afternoon, and got the receipt email. Just wondering.

Thanks,

TJ

Could be because Brian's been out of town on an emergency. If it doesn't show up soon, just send him a PM to remind him.

Usually he's pretty fast.

I mailed him a check, so it took me maybe 2 weeks.

It takes until one of the head honcho's switches your profile. This thread will probably speed up the process.

Turtle Jack, I'll check with donna to see if that's something she can do, but most likely it will have to wait till Brian gets back.

you have to cut off your pinkie and mail it to Brian to show your loyalty. No wait, that is how to become a yakuza. Oh, yeah, you cut out the logic region of your brain and trade it for the blue star.

It signifies that you apparently enjoy having Poo flung at you every time you walk by the Monkeyhouse at the zoo?

Only in P & R, and perhaps SS/FG.

you know, when given a star you should be told of it and ask if you accept, I mean you should be given a choice in my opinion.

you have to use Blue Star ointment to get that blue star. Comes with the warning that once you've used that ointment, you can never use another.

I have two nickels, an old piece of bubblegum, and some dryer lint in my pocket. Will that do instead?

The blue star is just a red star that signifies the beating one takes. It's really a black/blue/purplish color.

It's hilarious how you come back with stuff like this every time you have no good come back. It does bring at least a small amount of amusement to my day.
