Translation: Rothfuss will publish first.

Hehe... I think it'd be even funnier if they fought to say who will publish last...

Strange how you get more likes for a blank post than the explanation as to why.  ;D

I was thinking the same.

I mean, some pics I can't see when I'm at work because "it" thinks I'm on a US network/location, but at home I always see everything. Being in the UK you should be able to see everything, Rostum...

wow you've got your order upside down :o :D

And of course you're special: all F-Fers are special 8)

Anyway, before you die of curiosity, it's a star wars joke (that I didn't get...) - some screenshots with Solo and Luke talking, and the captions are in white text over the photos (which is what I thought you were referring to, in the first place!)
