Don't submit meetups to the main section of LW until you've picked a place and committed to being there at a particular time.

I'm half-tempted to schedule a meetup in the ruins of downtown San Francisco at noon on April 9, 2036. I'll be in what used to be the Ferry Building, wearing a hazmat suit with "Less Wrong" written on the front.

April 7 would work out better for me.

Hmm, I don't know. I'll get back to you in 15 years or so.

I lack the priors to understand this. But if you explained the joke, it would make it less funny for people who would actually understand it already... Maximizing the comedic potential of a sentence is too difficult.

Explanation should be in rot13.

Obvious idea: you could downvote the spoiler (for readers with moderate karma thresholds).

I will go to this as long as that libertarian guy won't be there.
