I can't remember the last N_M post that wasn't bland, unimaginative and lame. Some shitposters are at least somewhat funny. You are the epitomy of the type of poster that nobody would miss if you were to suddenly disappear. You never add anything of value.

Yeah, I knew it was an Agatha Christie character, but most mystery titles are so generic and forgettable. Except, of course, for "Ten Little Indians", which was much tamer than it's first title.

"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."

No dice. Mostly because I didn't see the bet before I saw that he was right. Did you get spectator access?
