Graphite lube... It turns your fingers black and you leave fingerprints everywhere, but it works.

I used to be a greaser, using coconut oil or olive oil on my thumbs to prevent screen stick and reduce friction on the glass.  Once I discovered the usefulness of powder, I went straight over to dusting.

 

Is anything slicker though?

One can become too slick. You're jonesing for licking honey off the knifes edge, man.

 

That’s what a friend told me anyway.

 

I dont use.

So when I first started I found Vasaline and though "WOW this is great!" Then realized it was hard to clean off. Soon I moved to baby oil and thought that was the only way to go. After a while my baby oil supply ran out so I went to the best most readily availabile lubricant I could find... Spit. It's cheap and always around. Cleans up nice and I don't have an oil slick on my hands afterward. Seems to work for me. 

 

Wait... What are we talking about?:trollface:

This whole thread is just full of laughs and what the frick is going on.

 Since I live within an hours drive of WG HQ, I have found a source who slips me some of the good stuff. It’s made out of the macerated and dried essence of those who have rage quit and uninstalled Blitz. He won’t disclose how it is made but he did mention black candles, pentagrams and the full moon.

 

If you are ever in the San Francisco Bay Area you may be offered a supposedly similar product from EA, but don’t be taken in by what you hear. Back in the beginning I could visit their offices, sit down with their engineers and discuss the bugs I had found. I saw for myself the high quality of their source material and the exacting standards used in the production of a superior product. Today there is no way they could produce that product in the volume they say they manage. There simply are not that many virgins left in the SF Bay Area.

not that it matters a bit but this has been Boris approved and appreciated. Just another example of the fine material to be had in the den that’s populated by real op poetry tankers

Its halloween season/event time, so what better post to bring back from the dead! Maybe we should have t shirts with the title of this post?

Thank god, I thought it was gone. Also, search “fennel.” Lots it hits. I bet some nuns don’t even screen dust any more.

The stuff works.


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I keep debating pinning this thread. 
   I don’t think any other thread has given so many chuckles over the years.

This thread may have reached the pinnacle of obscure internet threads! Searched google for dried fennel stem powder and what came up?

#1 result that is a non ad (only beat out by Amazon!). Anyone else can check? Was on a computer I never use so figured it was not tied to anything else I posted/searched.

This thread is in the same epic thread stratosphere as the infamous "Mall Ninja" thread from years ago on another site and is more than worthy of being pinned!

All hail the fennel dust!
Remember what the general said. We're the cavalry. It would be bad form to arrive early; in the nick of time would do nicely.
