I've been dying to know whether or not he pulled it off.

If so: this thread is useless without pix.

NEED TO KNOW.

I sent him a message via mefimail. His latest activity was an answer in AskMe on the 24th, so he's still using the site...

He hasn't hit the site from his login today. Patience.

Yes Mr. Power, do tell us how it went.

And if you do so of your own free will, we can forgo the sodium-pentathol cocktail or the rabid piranha tank.

If not, well...

I wouldn't want to be where you are standing.

Thanks for this thread. It reminded me to follow up on another anniversary I helped out with in AskMe.

I'm saving that thread for Sunday afternoon. Thanks. But no, not that one. This one.

I really like how I don't have to use title= on links to metafilter.com.

That maxpower thread is the one that got me reading AskMe on a regular basis.

Holy shit, dersins. That's one hell of a AskMe. Glad I missed that train wreck

I'm afraid, Ms. Moses, that your friend, Max Power, was unable to carry out operation "Wedding Crash." You see, days before his scheduled amphibious landing, Agent Power infiltrated my volcanic retreat and my henchmen were able to capture him. I locked him in a room with extremely slowly closing walls. While I was far too busy to actually watch him die, I'm certain the walls did their job.

Definitely one of the coolest askme's ever.

And, of course, my all time favourite answer: don't piss off scarabic.

I think of xteraco every now and again, my future brother-in-law reminds me of him...

And what ever happened to keyser Soze?

And what ever happened to keyser Soze?

My guess is that you will never hear from him again.
posted by cortex (staff) at 10:44 AM on October 31, 2007


Holy crap. Keyser Soze was banned in 2004. That's THREE YEARS AGO! Jesus. Tempus does fugit. I need a life.

I have to admit to a sick fascination with finding out, although I imagine the situation has only gotten infinitely more depressing since then.

After re-reading that entire thread, I imagine you're right tkolar - it looked pretty messed up.

Still, he had a 733t ride!

ESTRAGON: Charming spot. (He turns, advances to front, halts facing auditorium.) Inspiring prospects. (He turns to Vladimir.) Let's go.

VLADIMIR: We can't.

ESTRAGON: Why not?

VLADIMIR: We're waiting for maxpower.

Has anyone considered lighting the maxpower signal?
posted by drezdn at 6:18 AM on November 8, 2007


CitrusFreak12 said upthread that he mefimailed the guy: perhaps cortex can tell us if maxpower has logged in since then? ;) He doesn't have an email address listed, so I don't think we can do much more.
