Question: What does Embrodak stand for/mean?
Thanks for the question Plural.

Embrodak is taken from Strong Bad e-Mail number 79, "The Process". It came to existence on Monday, July 7, 2003, and I've used it since then when I was a ripe 28 year old.

In it Strong bad receives the following e-mail.
Quote:

Em.
{Strong Bad reads, "How long does it take to answer an e-mail?" even though the word "take" is omitted. He reads "prosess" as "prosess-sess... sess."}

Strong Bad continues typing along to his response: Em? What's that supposed to stand for? Emerson? {pause} Embrodak? {another pause} Emtarkanderundersgunderson? Boy, you have some stupid and terrible names.
Show you the process, eh, Em? Sure, I can do dat, but I should warn you, it may spoil the magic for some of you out there. I strongly urge both the faint of heart and the faint of butt to leave the room at this time.


I like the e-mail so much I adopted the name Embrodak (Emtarkanderundersgunderson was too long) as my characters name for Halo, when my buddies and I would play multi-player. I then started using it as my handle on various websites/forums I visited. I vary it sometimes if the name is already registered by putting the year of my birth after Embrodak, so now I'm either registered as Embrodak or Embrodak75.

Hmmm... I would have to say Wrapping things up. It reduces the chances for loose ends as you are more attentive as the process you are working on comes to an end.

Which, if any, is the correct religion?

Bonus question: what should be done about the others?

The Mormons.

I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion, be you Hindu, Jewish or Muslim. I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

Is that a Colbert quote? Sounds like one.

How are babies born and made? Looking for the exact process here.

Bonus questions:

How are you going to explain to your kids how babies are made when they are 10-15 years old?

What are you going to do to the first boyfriend of your little girl?

How do they put the M's on M&M's if the machines breakdown, cause we all know production would never stop!?
When is the earliest age for you boy and girl to date?

Yes. Yes it is. Can you guess where I got the first part of the answer too? RPXP if you can.

I don't know.. Perhaps a certain member equates M&M's with sexual intercourse?

You're an American Right? You obviously have suffered from the American trend to teach abstinence only... OK kids here goes the Embrodak Sexual Education Class.


Sexual reproduction is a union that results in increasing genetic diversity of the offspring. It is characterized by two processes: meiosis, involving the halving of the number of chromosomes; and fertilization, involving the fusion of two gametes and the restoration of the original number of chromosomes. During meiosis, the chromosomes of each pair usually cross over to achieve genetic recombination.

I'm not a prude, I'll explain about how the puzzle pieces fit together and all. Damn, I'm like 3-4 years away from that...

When he comes in to pick her up on her first date, I'll be cleaning a shotgun on our front porch.

That would require a catastrophic failure of all of Mar's Production machines. I used to work for a Chocolate Factory that did Contract Work for Hershey's. They made specialty molded chocolates. They made bell shaped kisses and reeses for Christmas. My little company alone had 3 separate machine/lines to make the bells. If my one company could shift production around like that I'm sure Mars could too and has multiple facilities producing the stuff.

I assume you mean other people and not each other.. I would say 14/15.

I am trying to imagine one machine that stamps the 'M' on every M&M in the world. Busy machine.

Question: When you are officially the most rpxp'd person in the world, will you take over Mars and change M&M's to E&E's? And who would be the second 'E'?

That's a trick question. I am the most RPXPed person in the world. ARG doesn't count because of the shady dealings done in the background to get him moved from 0 to over 100K in just a day.

Unfortunatly RPXP doesn't mean much in the real world so no plans to take over Mars. Besides I'd go Nestle as I'm a fan of the Butterfinger... Perhaps Hershey..

As far as the second E.. That would go to Emtarkanderundersgunderson.
