FanPost

The U.S.S. Impervious

Posts usually contain words. If you're chained to the sidebar like I am, 150 words is the minimum needed to unlock the "Publish" button. That seems like a fair number of words to merit a post. It really isn't that many words if you think about it. I'm almost at 50 right now and have barely mustered a coherent thought.

The only drawback to this 150 word system is that not everything needs words. Big moments in sports don't need words. Michael Kay put a damper on Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit with his incessant words. Pictures really don't need words many words either. There's a reason that 1,000 word cliche exists.

All of these words are just filler to get to what this post is really about. Taking inspiration from Brew Crew Ball's series The Yuni Files (and a few good ideas gathered from extended bullshitting), I'm trying something new. The following is a giant picture with only a few words included. Nothing wrong with a thousand words plus a few.
