:Well, it's only been one new feature revisiting a fascination with space. If it crops up again, it might be a revisit with the obsession, but not from just one mention, I think. --[[User:DorianGray|DorianGray]]

[edit] Strong Bad is selfish

Trevor's next sentence wasnt neccesarily include a gift for strong bad.

  • Yeah, and? Trevor's next sentence wasn't necessarily include a gift for Strong Bad and here's a million dollars? --Jay 02:41, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Ooo, burn. We really don't know what the ending was, and it doesn't matter anyway. So there. Bye-bye! -Brightstar Shiner 00:31, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Flashback contrast

Just wondering if I should add as a fun fact that "During the flashback scene, you can still click where the contrast buttons would be if the scene was still at Compy." I'm not sure if it is interesting enough, so I'll put it here for now. -- flatluigi 12:11, 5 Dec 2004 (MST)

I wouldnt mind this being added. Dr Haggis - Talk 13:05, 5 Dec 2004 (MST)
If I were you, I'd stick it in STUFF for voting. --Upsilon
Um, wrong computer. The computer Stong Bad uses is the Tandy 400 not the Compy. Next time, double check.User:Sbmaniac
Ummm, yeah. This conversation happened over a year ago. Further input isn't really important for this conversation. Thunderbird 01:12, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] That Fun Fact

Erm...about the fun fact... they did have swear words on the site before. Twice, actually. The Easter Egg in Parsnips-a-Plenty said the H word, and the Easter Egg in "comic" (the comic store) cleary has the A word on the cover of a CD/album/record. It wasn't on the DVD version, though. They must've edited it out. --205.188.116.68 09:28, 11 Jan 2005 (MST)

True, but the usage of the word "hell" is clearly referring to the place and not intended as a swear. When I meant "actual profanity" I mean something that would get you fined by the FCC. --Kamek 09:35, 11 Jan 2005 (MST)

[edit] Closed STUFF

These facts were on STUFF and closed. If you want to contest these, please leave a note, but don't let it be confused with the original votes.

[edit] Today's Email Is Brought To You By The Letter F (Declined)

When Strong Bad says "I mean what the", he types "I mean what the f". Presumably, Strong Bad was about to type the "F" word.

  • Wait a minute... Wasn't this already STUFF'D? Or am I imagining things? Either way, I decline. I'm pretty sure everyone could guess what Strong Bad was going to type. Rudeboy87 12:36, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. Seems pretty out of character (at least in hindsight) for both SB and TBC -- tomstiff 13:43, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept. I think it was deliberate. Remember when Strong Bad shouted, "Screw all y'all!" in sb_email 22? I wouldn't call it out of character. However, TBC seems to have toned down the just barely borderline vulgar humor since the old emails in order to make the site more kid-friendly. That's just my opinion though. --Upset_Your_Balance 14:41, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. --Trogga 18:50, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. I always understood it as a humorous almost-usage of the F-word. This kind of gag is pretty common, even occurring in G-rated movies such as The Lion King and Finding Nemo. --Beatfox 18:52, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • Comment. Heh, yeah, I know what you're talking about. "Why do I always have to save your AHHHHHHH!" "Don't you all realize we're swimming in our own--" "Shhh!" --Upset_Your_Balance 1:10, 21 Apr 2005
  • Decline TBC have a no swearing policy. Boarderline swears are just jokes. Plus this is a speculatory "fact". The "f" could have been for anything. And "presumably" is just another way to say "may be". Donny vs Universe
  • Decline Probably right, but who needs a fun fact to tell them this? It's as useful as saying, "When strongbad does this and this, he's making fun of the grammar in the e-mail."--rsl12 21:13, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. I agree with Upset Your Balance et al. in that I think it was deliberate, but isn't it pretty obvious? — It's dot com 22:35, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. Everything is as it was. Not sure why this was removed after just one day of voting. NOTE: please allow 2 weeks of voting before declaring a verdict! -- tomstiff 13:04, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline Strong Bad almost said the F-word, everyone who knows about the F-word can figure that out we don't need something to tell us about it. The_Pardack
    • Second. I think what The_Pardack said pretty much summed it up. Super Sam 07:17, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second --GregHosting 03:13, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak Accept. It is true that anyone can figure out, but TBC don't usually curse. I think this is the closest we're going to get. →evin290 18:10, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Nope.... I don't think this needs to be a fun fact at all... i think it was just a joke for the email, not a fact or anything.
  • DECLINE'd!!! Not because he didn't...he obviously did, but then, that's why. It's really obvious and doesn't need to be noted.TakuaKaita600 17:27, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline Even though I agree that SB was about to drop an F-bomb, I think readers should be allowed to draw their own conclusions. It's implied by the transcript. Lucres 20:13, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Somebody tell me why

Why did'nt Trevor finish his email? -Kinsey

Because they got him! Duh! – The Chort

But I don't think Trevor really was a vampire, and if that's so, there should be a more logical reason. -Kinsey

The most logical speculation is that he accidentally pressed "send" before he was finished with the email. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 18:24, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)
no way. The PASIAVHA (Put A Stake In A Vampire's Heart Association) got him. I know it. — talk Bubsty edits 00:33, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

No no no, it was a joke, where he leaves you with terrifying info and you're supposed to be freaked out for a second, and you don't know the end of it. He did it on purpose. SaltyTalk! 03:20, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

I dunno... that interpretation seems a little far fetched. Yeah, Homestar Coder's reason makes the most sense. 71.231.56.40 21:41, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Yeah. HC's interpretation is best. — Defender1031*Talk 21:47, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Revising Trivia FF? (Spaceship obsession)

  • This is the first email featuring the early Strong Bad's short-lived spaceship obsession, continued in credit card and CGNU.

The Trivia section of Fun Facts for this email currently reads as above. I'm wondering if, now that space program is out, this line should be revised, or another FF added to indicate that Strong Bad's obsession might not have been so short-lived? Or is this even relevant? - KieferSkunk 21:10, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Well, it's only been one new feature revisiting a fascination with space. If it crops up again, it might be a revisit with the obsession, but not from just one mention, I think. --DorianGray

What about cliffhangers? 173.32.221.240 01:51, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Lesson 2: All the swears

The joke is he was about to swear, it doesn't make sense otherwise. — Defender1031*Talk 19:35, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Pining pun

I noticed a pun there. A pine is a kind of tree and vampires are usually killed with wooden stakes. And there's also the fact that he said the pining bit after the realisation! Lolzors. 8D - ‪‪‪Znex 04:40, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Forum-ish, and we never add a fact that explains the joke. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 04:45, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
I know, I was just pointing it out! 8D - ‪‪‪Znex 05:53, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
