to name it the White Box

[color=ECD872]Box Of [color=6AFB92]%4s
[color=ECD872]Chaos!! [color=6AFB92]%5s %6s
" where the pleasantly colored % variables--the last three are optional, by the way--are assigned pseudo-random values taken
from a list of [color=E0FFFF]everything this guy says
This [color=FF8040]Interactive Moniker
is surprisingly accurate despite being, at minimum, fifty percent pseudo-random. The
"White Box" is an insidious tool designed to facilitate the propagation of [color=FFFC17]Chaos
. And when I say
, all loud and construction-equipment yellow like that, I am not talking about the
of [color=92C7C7]Chaos Theory
, because [color=92C7C7]Chaos Theory
mathematical methods of extracting or extrapolating useful information from very complex systems that appear to be
, but are, in fact, only [color=92C7C7]chaotic
. True [color=FFFC17]Chaos
defined, in short, as follows:
The information in the above quote box is based on relentless and exhaustive research.
...a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.
...any confused, disorderly mass
The difference between [color=FFFC17]Chaos
should now be clear. [color=92C7C7]Chaos
describes methods of defining and extracting data from complex systems, and in doing so, it demolishes the authenticity of its
name, because [color=FFFC17]Chaos
is complete disorder
and therefore contains no useful data to extract
. It is still
" for the same reason people still refer to [color=C9BE62]Native Americans as
[color=E9AB17]Indians: because you can only name something once, so get it right the first time.
But let's not do too much thinking outside the box. It's what we're here to discuss, after all. That white, blank, insidious
It directly contributes to the acceleration of the thermodynamic
of the universe; i.e. entropy
, a theory or basic "Law" of the universe that
offers explanation to a wide range of phenomena, such as "why stuff breaks or just falls apart", "why there ain't no such thing as a free lunch", and
"why life sucks and then you die."
The largest implication of entropy is the [color=C3FDB8]entropic death of the universe
...and rather than supply a link, I invite anyone
of you to paste that phrase into the search engine of your choice and see what you get.
So entropy is the disorderly or non-useful dispersion of energy. Every time some unsuspecting soul tries typing into [color=FFFC17]The
, the text entered represents a chunk of orderly energy from muscle movements and brain activity; energy that is extracted from food
consumed, and from there that can be traced many ways but the basic answer is some of it comes from the earth's energy supply, some of it comes from
the Sun, and some of it comes from the energy represented by any element heavier than hydrogen that was created in the fusion process of stars long
dead. In other words, the "Hello" typed into [color=FFFC17]The Box contains energy that has been meticulously recycled since the
beginning of the [color=6AFB92]%8s universe. [color=FFFC17]The Box
absorbs it, generates some waste heat through processing
circuitry, and waits for more.
Every time someone tries typing into [color=FFFC17]The Box
, the universe dies a little bit. Since it's already supposed to end
sometime late 2012, I find this added reduction--if there is such a thing--unacceptable.
The Box Must Be Stopped.

Well that was fun.
Question: The "Preview" function does not appear to display emoticons. Are the any other BBCode features it will not render? May be useful to know,
so time is not wasted trying to find an error somewhere in the text(like I did with the emotes).
