I've already explained why. Several times, I think.

Rule 63 is one of the more famous Rules of the Internet. For anyone who doesen't know, RUle 63 is ""For any given male character, there is a female version of that character." Our Rule 63 is Strip, from Strop, because Strip takes Rule 63 to an extreme. I had planned to stop at 63 because, since it applies to an actual Rule of the Internet, it seemed like an appropriate place, but I decided to add one more based on the fact that many people see a large block of text and ignore almost all of it.

From that comes "tl;dr" or, for anyone who STILL doesn't know what that means, "too long; didn't read." I wanted to put it at the very bottom to nail the lazy people for ignoring my list. Plus, it's a good Rule to use for people on RPGs who make completely wrong character sheets because they didn't read the directions.

"tl;dr" needs to be the last rule, and Rule 63 is a flawless combination of the Internet and Armor Games list. Plus, if I try to set the bar at 100, we will end up with a bunch of useless, irrelevant "rules" just to fill a list. I'm cutting it off at 64 so that only the best rules will be part of the final list.

Any results from the great and revered council of AG yet?
Also, my friend has a notebook that all of my friends derp in, and she decided to make "Rules of the insanity notebook" I helped, and there are a few rules from here in there. Especially rule 63, even though my friends don't get it. I sit and am quietly amused. >w

Are there any from her "Insanity" notebook that could be converted to AG rules?

Also, I will ask Ferret myself.

Looks like you guys have been busy. I'm asking the moderators their thoughts about making this a more permanent feature to the Tavern.

I'll check. Most of them are random quotes and stuff form Tobuscs and ASDF and life and a few have to do with Assasains Creed so I don't really think so.
...How are your Wii Golfing skills?

Oh ok. See if they work by changing the names around, though, but be careful to not make any duplicate rules. I REALLY want to avoid rules that say almost exactly the same thing.

I heard you like Wii Golf. Well, I don't want to brag, but I sank a 15-foot putt without even looking at the screen.
