Who's Gary?

I can't help but wonder... who's Gary? I can only hope that his existence will be explained in the next email. Maybe I wasn't paying attention to the last email... --Chiron 11:32, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Maybe a reference to Limozeen Gary? Dementedc 11:49, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking it was Gary Palaroncini as well, with all the Limozeen and sloshy appearances as of late. jrgilby
I doubt it's reference to anything. It's just a random guy, a nobody. That's how I interpret it. Especially as it's not really stated anywhere why Strong Bad would be expecting an e-mail from Limozeen. --Sysrq868 16:35, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Yeah I was just going to say this would be a reference to a character if anything from Spongebob, not an episode. (Gary is a snail). But since Gary is a common name this seems a very tenuous link at best. I removed that line. --Foolster41 18:10, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

I assume when TBC were planning this email, Matt/Mike just started singing a random song about Gary and they decided to put it in. It could have very easily been Larry, Paul, Dan, Fred, George, Tom, Dick or Harry. – The Chort 18:30, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
There was an episode of Spongebob where he and Gary were separated somehow and Spongebob missed him alot. Awexome 20:30, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Coulomb's law?

I don't think "Coolguy's Law" is a direct reference to Coulomb's law, even if it was mentioned in "4 branches". "Coolguy's Law" is a throwback to "Prof. Tor Coolguy" from the Strong Bad Is In Jail Cartoon. The fact that "Coolguy" sounds like "Coulomb" is just a coincidence. Not to mention there's no similarity whatsoever between the two actual equations, nor any compelling reason to write out and explain Coulomb's law in this article instead of just linking to it.

Amen, amen, a thousand times amen -Jdhannan 15:04, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I agree as well. Besides, Coulomb's law is an inverse square law anyway, not an inverse proportional law. --Crazyswordsman 15:32, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I disagree, i think it IS a reference. — Defender1031*Talk 15:46, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I agree, this is NOT a reference. Where is STUFF when you need it.-racerx_is_alive
OK DeFender, some of us have actually taken Physics courses (not to mention very basic mathematics) and
realize that Coulomb's law does not actually have an inverse relationship - it is an inverse square law. Come now.
Do you have any basis for making the claim other than the distant phonetic similarity?

Text-clearing

Is it just me or is the animation for Strong Bad clearing the text on his computer different in this e-mail? I would check another one, but I don't have time. Dementedc 11:45, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Still looks like the same fwoosh-up to me. suǝʇʇıʞ ƃuıɥɔund 12:08, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
It does look like video-games -> food clears to the upper-left corner rather than going straight up. Could someone with a decompiler frame-by-frame it? 61.48.103.184 12:13, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
I thought the same thing when I was watching it. If you frame by frame it though it's just scrolling off the screen in the normal way. Must the the shape of the text on the screen that makes the illusion. 64.198.255.1 15:55, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Slumber Party Dance

Can anyone make out what Homestar is singing? It's incoherent to me, but he's definitely not just saying "Party! Slumber Party!" as the transcript currently reads. 64.198.255.1 16:00, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

He most certainly is just saying that actually. — Defender1031*Talk 16:00, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
He certainly says that, he most certainly does not say just that. 64.198.255.1 17:38, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
That's basically what he's saying, but after "Party! Slumber party!" he says something noticeably different. I can't make out one word, but he sings "Listen to some something! At my slumber party!" Despite my attempts to understand that one word where he sings "Listen to some..." I can't make it out.
Nevermind, this is sort of moot now, someone has updated the transcript...64.198.255.1 17:42, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

This is my email!!

I sent this email in! I can't believe it got answered! --ThomasO 16:18, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

That's really cool, way to go! So UNO invited you to a party, huh? — Defender1031*Talk 16:21, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Oh no. There was a "slumber party" in the dorm lounge, and the only activity was a game of Uno. After one game everyone was bored and the "party" was over. --ThomasO 16:28, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Ah, i see... they need to get more interesting games... like filthy rich, hedbanz, ticket to ride, guillotine, things nobody's ever heard of... (Those are all fun games) I'm actually gonna be playing filthy rich with my friends tonight... — Defender1031*Talk 16:31, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

In case any of you don't believe me, I have the original email still saved, which I just took a screenshot of. Hmm, I just noticed that they edited out "at a nearby dorm". Here --ThomasO 16:41, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to the club Thomas O. How is that girl's night out party kit treating you ;) PlasticDiverGuy 16:53, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
That's awesome, ThomasO — congrats! Trey56 16:55, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Congrats ThomasO. I wish I had my email answered by Strong Bad. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 20:48, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Me too. Heck, I've emailed Strong Bad SEVERAL TIMES and STILL NO ANSWER. CAPITALZ. but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!!
Good to know they'll edit it a bit, now I don't have to be paranoid about making sure everything's completely good-sounding and relevant :)

Load Bearer

In traditional home construction, a load-bearing wall is one which is part of the basic structure of the house, and the studs in it support the roof. Normally it's the wall directly below the peak of the roof. Those studs, and therefore that wall, bear the load of the roof beam. This is opposed to a non-load-bearing wall, whose studs do not support any weight and simply divide the floor into rooms. Destroying a non-load-bearing wall won't affect the structural intecrity of a house; destroying a load-bearing wall can cause the roof to collapse. (Note that in steel buildings a steel beam is supported on either side and there is no need for a load-bearing wall, as the steel is stronger and does not require mid-beam support as wood does. However, homes built this way are more expensive.)

Now, is that what they're playing? Looking for a wall to destroy that bears the roof load? I didn't want to go and change the fact right off, as it at present also makes sense. Thought it merited discussion. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:34, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Stops abruptly

Um...this e-mail will just stop abruptly in the middle and not go on, around the part about Coolguy's Law. I've even tried using a seek bar, but it won't even go past that part. I've cleared my cache, refreshed, viewed the flash file, EVERYTHING I know. Help! --Color Printer 22:02, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

I haven't encountered that issue. Do you have other programs running which m ight be using up proccesing speed? I'd try clearing the cache and all that again, a full reboot, open just a browser, and try it then. Another question: does the Flash load completely? I mean, if you open it in Firefox with the Greasemonkey, does the bar fill completely, or does it not download the whole file? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:11, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
It looks like it fully loads. When it stops, the seek bar isn't at the end, it's where it should be. Lemme try going to IE. --Color Printer 22:13, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Huh, it works in IE. Weird. Let me try giving the Greasemonkey thing the bed axe and see if it works. --Color Printer 22:42, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Ugh. Still stopping. I'll try rebooting it later, I have homework to do. --Color Printer 22:43, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Unbelievable

I can't believe none of you guys put up the fact that Homestar can't play Clapping Party WITHOUT ARMS! User:WeirdAl 22:09, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

PS:I saw Weird Al a second time in Aug!!!

He can't carry around a bag of four grapes without arms either. Nor can he carry a fondue set. Nor can he wrap a Deep Impact DVD and bring it to a party. He can't do any of these things without arms, can he? Well, turns out he in fact can. We don't know how really. But he can. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:14, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
