Thread: Best posts/discussions of SZ

  1. #1

    Default Best posts/discussions of SZ

    The aim of this thread is to gather together some of the great, insightful posts and interesting discussions we have had on SZ.

    This is a work in progress and the following list is by no means exhaustive. Members are welcome to chime in with recollections of excellent posts/discussions and if possible, a link to it, so it can be added to the list. The more the better.

    Classification will eventually come at a later point, let's build up a list first and we can go from there.

    Good work people! Keep posting up, I know there's plenty more that we're missing. I'm sure Johnny, Seventh, kira, merz amongst others all have more excellent posts.

    The 'unknown' saga was pretty epic but let's stick to the good stuff :-)

    Pretty sure deleuze was responsible for the epic SZ NBA dream team.

    Ah-ha, thanks! No wonder I couldn't find it, somehow I was sure it was in the CCP thread.

    Laika, on top of each post, in the right corner, there is a number - this number is a link. Click on it and you will get a link to an individual post.

    Thanks, drexl!
