3. I Forgot The Site. I Believe It Was 538

7. My absolute favorite Freeperism of all time

8. Did he use the word "Jack"? I'm sure he's very familar with it...

...or at least a "jack" related activity (or several, if non-activity can be counted as an activity) from his stylishly-appointed room in his mom's basement.
