First Post!


Posted on: October 12, 2005

It’s time for us to write about the Best Page in the Universe. At least that’s what the author, Maddox, proclaimed. I don’t know about the best but he is certainly popular by listed as the number 13 on Technorati 100 Popular Blogs. His first post dated back to July 30, 1998 titled About Stress and Sanity (You Might Go Crazy). That’s a massive archive he got there.

Here’s the deal: you get too stressed out, and you’ll go crazy. They’ll lock you up. Trust me, I know. Everyone has a puddle of sanity in their head. Stress is like a sponge that soaks up sanity. You don’t want it to soak up all your sanity because you’ll lose your grip.

Soon everyone will start calling you names like beaver brains and chowder head. Your only friends will be office supplies. They never laugh at you, or call you names, or pretend like they’re your friends long enough for you to do their homework and stab you in the back while they go out to their fancy parties for fancy people with nice clothes and slick dyed hair, the kind of hair that all the kids try to mimic because they think that the hair will make them cool and saucy and they listen to live and bush, and they go to the canyons and sit around camp fires, holding hands and singing songs like everybody else would do if they had enough time and money or if they had a job that they didn’t have to work at night and day so they could have a few minutes to compose their thoughts and register for school in time so they don’t get jabbed with another $20 late fee that they can’t pay for because they’ve been working long hours for some uncaring corporate demons in a hot, humid, dirty building with gum meaded into the carpets and feces erupting from the toilets with a smell so pungent as to elicit vomiting if not worse, since they’ve been 16 years old, day after day without any rest, ever.

No, office supplies just do what they’re told. They sit there quietly, holding papers together, faxing documents or counting figures. They almost never scream at you and demand answers you don’t have. They always follow orders, and they never talk back. They don’t pretend to be nice and full of integrity while whoring themselves out to every jerk that comes along and woos them with their good looks. Office supplies are friends.

Actually this is not Maddox’s first post. But it was the first that’s accessible for visitors. Here’s what he told us.

My first official post was about communists, and it was one line long: “Commies are dumb.”

But the first post anyone can access is the one in the ’98 page.

Did I mentioned that this is a cool site? :)

  • firstpost: Hm, yes I think it will be interesting. By saying timeline, do you mean like mapping out the dates of people's first posts? Like: 17 May 2005: Eri
