*rolls eyes REALLY HARD*

Submitters: Read The Farking Article.

This guy invented paper, not the concept of paperwork. They were using other materials in place of paper for administrative and communicative purposes.

I am now filing Form 32(a) subsection G4(Improper Headline to Article Greenlight/Wolverine Attack Compensation Form) to the Modmin Complaint Pyramid Complex. You can expect a notarized copy of my complaint and a packing receipt, subby.

Make sure you stamp it enough times, or the #1 Bureaucrat may demote you.

Actually, paper was invented a long time before that. Maps of the modern world were drawn on paper as early as 10,000 BC according to Roland Emmerich.

Relax, Chinaman. How about you chill out, maybe have a beer, and do something besides pick forum fights. Heck, go find a hot Asian girl and have sex using your large American peni... oh wait. Sorry.

Chinaman?

Aww, that could've been awesome. I gave you a great setup for "'Chinaman' is not the preferred nomenclature, dude." Maybe next time.

Um, no offense, but I suspect anything drawn in 10,000 BC would not be accurately described by the word "modern", unless you are trying to imply that the ancient cartographers were also prophets?

Why are subby's kept anonymous? Anyone got any idea? If they weren't, that would be a motivator to not fark up and create misleading headlines

How is this obvious?

Isn't it true when men become eunuchs they become enormous?
He has just been sneeped!

Bring in Caldonia to perform her highly erotic dance, and if he's truly a eunuch... Nothing, should "Arise".

He's a Eunuch.

HEE'S A EUNUCH...

HE'S DEAD.

FLOP! THE GIG IS UP... AND SO AM I!

and in 1963 he became the first Oriental to run down a group of pedestrians in a Farmers Market rooking fol flesh fluit.

We need more eunuchs in the modern world. That is all.

I heard by 2010, e-paper will be cheaper than paper itself. Shift happens.

Tsai made his pulp from bamboo fibers and the inner bark of the mulberry tree.

The more you know: mulberry paper (kozo) is still used today, particularly for print making, especially for woodcuts.
