Re: [spoon-discuss] upper house

BvS, that's not at all relevant to this game. Name one culture that has
had a Cursed Sushi of Babel, a Grid bursting into flame, and that squeezed
Gnomes into Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters.

Anyway, no one said 'higher' meant more powerful. It of course refers to
distance above sea level, and Age Groups do not have a specified altitude.

Your idea that the newest players should be placed higher in the imaginary heirarchy than the older ones is almost as crazy as my not having gotten a Win when my second joining day came around, despite my having written that rule in the first place (thbbbt to all). Name one culture that wasn't on Star Trek or the Twilight Zone where the youngers are more powerful than the elders. If you can (and by youngers I mean newborns are the most powerful members of society), I'll grant you your little lunacy.-
