what should we do with karma points?

well since we're apparently stockpiling karma points for no reason it's become obvious to me that the board admin. is simply waiting for us to decide how to use them.(the points, you clods, not the admin!)
so, i believe they're waiting for the best idea before they assign a use for the points.

i think we ought to go the video game route and use our KPs to get power up abilities and better finishing moves. also, after this moment, KP shouldn't equal postcount like it does now, so n00bs won't be able to PP and get all the good power-ups undeservedly. i of course will incite the grandfather clause on that rule.

Original Post
Karma points could also be used to make the WGB dating thread more REAL. For example, as pre-condition of signing up for WGB membership, all women must be willing to submit to sexual favors for various # of KPs.

What # of KPs = what kinds of favors can be hammered out here. Also who pays airfare, travel expenses, and who gets the frequent flyer miles can all also be hammered out here.

OK:

50 points: WGB-branded water bottle
500 points: WGB handheld blender
1000 points: WGB Robot vacuum, or a dozen fresh roses

10 000 points: Maglite, WGB digital camera (off-brand; 1MB), or carpet cleaning.
50 000 points: Day at the spa. Gibson does your nails.
"Are cyberpunks allowed out on the beach?"

Oh, the HELL with that! Deadly UV? No way! Have you ever been to Florida? I haven't seen full-blown skin cancer, but from what I've seen, I sure don't want to see it on me.

Besides, it's hell to see anything on your laptop in direct sunlight.
Well, if Charma keeps engaging me in CAT FIGHTS, I might just get that 50,000 KP "Day at the spa. Gibson does your nails." Pauline Wink

2nd BTW of this current posting cycle: I changed my location from a Bridgit the Midgit quote to a mangled mammal sentence. But it was all in the name of

"Gibson does your nails."

Does what to your nails? He looks like the type that chews his, I wouldn't mind a long conversation, a couple of coffees, and a shared pack of Dunhills with him, but I'm not sure I want him to chew on my nails.

Man, imagine William Gibson, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stephen King, over coffee...what a dream come true.

"Kurt! Quit bumming cigarettes, you're not even supposed to be smoking, are you? I thought you quit."

"Give the guy a break, willya Bill?"

"Steve, you know they're not good for him, he does too. Lookit him coughing."

"I'm not coughing from the cigarettes, it's Bill's aftershave. That metallic aftertaste in the back of my throat..."

"Hey, hey, 'member that time, when Kilgore Trout tried to write that horror-science fiction story, and it had, like, robot monsters in it, and like..."

Bill, Kurt, and Steve all look at me, "SHUT UP!"

All three talk at once, "I'm gonna fire my agent for setting this up..." "Bill, was this your publisher's idea?" "Man, I just want to go back to Maine..."

Brilliant! It's just so damned cheesy and... and... Canadian!

(Sedated female announcer's voice) "..and finally, to close today's community announcements, noted writer William Gibson will be bagging groceries and signing copies of his book at the Sobey's on Topsail road. Have your UBB.x Karma point coupons handy..."

But it's Gibson! He's into the seriously unique objects. Wouldn't it be more like:

5000 points - 1 bottle Pocari Sweat
50000 points - 1 Itoya K500 writing pen
100000 points - 1 Vulcain Direct Read Watch
500000 points - Gibson as your personal shopping assistant for a day in Vancouver's antiques district (is there such a thing?)

Or something? Of course, on reflection, there's going to be a limited supply of prizes, as it were...
