Dec-18-07  sushijunkie: Wasn't this guy a Herculoid?
Dec-18-07  DukeAlba: I think so:

I guess he needed a career change... He had an argument with Tara and decided he needed to see other people and try new things like playing chess...

Dec-18-07  porgue: aww he died the day before his birthday

that would suck

Dec-18-07  DukeAlba: Yeah that does suck...
