    To show just how political everything really is, I voted.

    We have a tie! I will bow out, since I won that last one. So... @Kai "the spy" and @Vanyel , do you want to do a run-off?

    Dang, I guess it's my turn. I have an idea, I just need to make avatars for them, sleep some more, and put it up. Thank you @auntiehill and @Kai "the spy" . But I really do need to sleep working graveyard means I should be back in bed now, but I can't sleep. Going to drink some peppermint tea, that usually helps.
