Maxpower, if you're out there, is there any chance we can get a follow up to my favorite AskMe thread of all time? It's been sitting on my links toolbar for months!

You fool! Are you trying to cause an international incident?

Clearly, I thought we were beyond such reproach.

The summer ain't over... Maybe he hasn't pulled it off yet. I too wanted an update. (Maxpower's profile used to say he lived near me, sadly he must have moved near the Fortresses of Solitude)

I emailed him to tip him off about this thread. I'm also dying to hear what happened.

Hah, that's great--it's also been on my toolbar for months, even though he clearly said:
"Sadly, I will be unable to post details of how the mission goes down on MeFi Projects. "

Squid, see my link—he recanted his original hesitance towards posting about the endeavor.

I figured it out. Max Power is none other than... P. Diddy!

Looks like he pulled it off. Congratulations Max. Your music sucks, but you sure did emerge from water wearing a tuxedo.

Mathowie, thanks for the tip off. Of course thwarting a secret cabal of family members isn't often talked about in public. There is so much I'd like to say, but then.... they'd find me. I'm glad there was so much interest in the question, I had been reading metafilter for a couple months and finally decided to join (via secure and untraceable financial back channels) to ask that question. The results were well worth it.

First let me say that the response to the question was overwhelming and that secondly, being an agent for an unnamed government agency isn't as cut and dry as in movies and books.

The event in question was my own wedding. I, being the groom, maintained a certain sense of decorum about the whole thing. Being the debonair super spy that I am, I chose to forgo the grand entrance discussed in AskMeFi in favour of letting my lovely bride steal the show with her entrance. To be truthful, I wanted everyone talking about her entrance down onto the beach and not mine... this time.

That all said, I learned a tremendous amount of tactics and maneuvers that I will employ in the future (read: first anniversary party) at the many events that I'm sure will continue to happen on the shores of Lake Huron (cabal HQ). Mark my words, I will arrive at a party via the lake in a tux -- its on my list.
