Thanks, Mim! He is a special guy.

And beware of Hien - I hear he's got a sheep accomplice along with him for the ride...

Sander is now a Mod and still invisible but rumor has it there's photographic evidence of his existence from Belfast.

Actually, all of us at the Belfast meet up weren't (and still aren't) quite sure if the person we met was the real him...

The person you met was undoubtedly really the person you met, and so the real him. (Unless the person you met was a her, then it was the real her; but I'd think you'd be able to tell, and so will henceforth assume that this person really was a real him.) However, this real him that was the person you met is unlikely to have been the real me, which isn't the person you met, but is the person who is typing this. Now, one might conceivably argue that no one is ever the same person as they are or were or will have been at any time before or after the time when they were really themselves, as none of those people who could've been not unlike the person they really were would ever succeed in crossing the same river twice, but one might argue against that (the one arguing against it probably not being the same person as the one arguing in the first place about how no one is ever the same person, and then not in the same sense of not being the same person as in the argument of the first person who argued, but really because these two arguing people would really not be the same person) that this argument (the first argument, you understand) would be nothing more than sophistry, and so the me who is typing this, who at least at this very specific moment in time is the real me (and so someone who would not at this very specific moment of time be the real me would refer to this real me as the real him, on account of not being him and so not being able to refer to him (that is, me) as "the real me"), would quickly gloss over this counter-argument by this hypothetical "one" person (who is neither the real me nor the real "him"), and state that it was obviously not the real him who was met in Belfast, for that person, who was really met (or so we apparently have to believe based on sketchy second hand reporting of questionably verifiability and even more questionable arrangements of pixels in supposed photographs), was, in being met, as we have stated before, really the real person who was met, and so the real him, while I, as you might have grasped by now, am the real me, and thus not the real him.

I hope that clarifies the matter. :)

Okay, who spiked Sander's tea with hallucinogenics??

Sander, you are to take the little green pills, not the great big pink ones.

He doesn't talk like that in real life.

Wait--maybe that's cause it wasn't really him...????
