    the beauty of wikipedia is that's what the article can say with a few choice edits!

    i just imagined running a locally hosted copy of wikipedia and a dns redirect on your network with all sorts of crazy things

    I imagine Gabe would think of that like a rockstar's son would think of reading his father's crazy fanmail.

    true story: i used to pull other kids' teeth out for them

    this was something they requested, and i enjoyed doing it

    then i turned 8 and started playing video games instead

    “Hic non defectus est, sed cattus minxit desuper nocte quadam. Confundatur pessimus cattus qui minxit super librum istum in nocte Daventrie, et consimiliter omnes alii propter illum. Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.”

    My parents lied to my sister and me all the time.

    The best was probably "The sky is purple when you're not looking at it."

    you're = you are
    your = belonging to you

    their = belonging to them
    there = not here
    they're = they are

    In my house my parents would write from santa and stuff like that on the presents when we were little. My sister came up with the idea to do a hand writing analysis to determine if my parents were writing the tags on the gifts or not.

    I had a grade school teacher pull the same trick when I was in 1st grade. Seriously, I had a really loose tooth, and she sent me and another boy in the bathroom, because she was tired of seeing me play with it. To this day, me and the other guy swore she told him to pull it out. She denied it when when I came back with a bloody mouth, but hey.

    And that's the story of how I lost my first tooth.

    “I’m the next president,” Greene said. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the greatest person ever. I was born to be president. I’m the man, I’m the greatest individual ever.”

    It didn't come out

    My father did this to me so many fucking times! SO MANY TIMES!

    one time, we were at the dinner table and my tooth was loose. He gave me the same old "let me see it."

    I protested, understandably. Made him swear up and down that he wouldn't pull it out. I even made the clause that he could not even put his whole hand in my mouth (so he couldn't grab the tooth, duh!)

    He agreed and only reached forward with one index finger "to feel how loose it was"

    My dad placed his finger on my tooth and wiggled it a little. Gave me some confidence. Then with a flick of his single finger, pulled my tooth clear out of my mouth. It shot all the way to the other side of the dinner table.

    Bastard.

    My father has the worst godamn joke in the world.

    There's this small town in Texas called Thrall that we have to pass through on the way to the family reunion every year.

    Whenever we pass through it he exclaims, "Haha! Now I have my entire family in Thrall!"

    The joke is that is sounds like "Enthrall." Now every time I pass through Thrall, I crack a smile. Thanks Dad, for being so punny.

    "In thrall" works perfectly fine on it's own. It means "enthralled".

    I think you are not understanding the joke actually

    Have you never heard the phrase "in thrall"?
