Ok - you are also free to decline those choices.But not these:What if you lost a bet and had to have dinner with one of these illustrious Wilmott members:PpauperFarmerErrrbZerdna(I don't really expect any of you to answer, this is just to illustrate something that came up on the DEUS thread.)

Otherwise I'm OK with having a blow job and steak day. sincerely yours, Errrb

Just for the record, I would chose ppauper. Here is why: curiousity about his real psycheHere is why not the others:Farmer: already know what he looks like from pictures here; also I wouldn't want to upset his current girls. They can keep him.Errrb: high possibility of violence - he is probably being tracked by Mossad, Muslim extremists, ex coworkers, and various paramilitary organizations. I wouldn't want to get caught in the cross fire.Zerdna: z is too curious about my appearance. Also, he might post comments about the dinner here and to me mixing On Forum and Off Forum worlds constitutes an undesirable breach of security.

I think farmer would be the one most devoted to being obnoxious so that the fun would rapidly get old.Looks like Errrb. Tourette's syndrome can be fun sometimes.

My second choice would be Errrb; I'd hire some Black Ops guys to cover me and the perimeter around the restaurant.

Occasional anal penetrations of the goat (who goes by name Fermion) using empty vodka bottles are the only violent adventures which we might have.

You guys seem to enjoy that quite a bit.My deviant interests are more subtle and nuanced, but to each one's own.

BTW, I thought that in your world, goat-fuckers were Muslims. Or is goat-fucking ok for you if it's only a revenge fantasy?
