Should I post this? Should I not?
Machines from Sigma have taken over Bracket.
Arbit is dead. So what if it was one of the life essences in IIMB. Soon Global will also be eliminated, poor chap. CP lies manacled, dragging the heavy chains of Meaning, Relevance and Content. Only RG - the faceless, spineless serpent, will survive this Pogrom.
The Bitches - the builders of a cult on Bracket - have been rendered sterile .... Down the Panda's throat a bamboo has been shoved .... The Pigeons wings are torn away...bleeding it lies, shot in mid-air .... Neither has the iconic 2X2 been spared - Sigma cuts everyone down to size.

Welcome to the New Sigma.
Welcome to 1984.
Happy New Year.
The seniors at IIMB sent a mail to the juniors saying all the girls would be in Section A and the guys could mail and select which section they would like to be in, after which allotments would be on a First come first served basis. Some (but very few) people actually fell for it! So you had guys mailing in asking to be put in section A and girls shouting about equal rights etc. Good fun.
Actually from what i see in the e-group some guys r still buying into it.
