    I think Six was saying that he would be purging more of his swag because he is out of desk space due to the smaller desk.

    earlier twitter "okay, smaller desk means less space. Means lose some swag. "

    Okay so Six just quoted George Orwell. "If there is hope, it lies in the proles"

    I looked up what a proles is. Here's an excerpt from wikipedia.

    Proles is a term used in Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four to refer to the working class of Oceania (i.e. the proletariat).

    According to 1984, the society of Oceania was divided into 3 distinct classes: Inner Party, Outer Party, and proles (upper, middle and lower classes, respectively). In the novel, 85% of the population of Oceania (which covers the Americas, Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and southern Africa below the River Congo) are proles. They were given little education, worked at jobs in which tough physical labour was the norm, lived in poverty (but qualitatively richer than the Outer Party members with regard to certain freedoms inherent to their relative anonymity), had plenty of children, and usually died by the age of sixty.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Doubt class warfare will be brought into this "ARG". It is prolly just an allusion to the game and how the grunts will be the savior. Not some politician or member of the upper crust. That or something related to the upcoming presidential election.

    P.s. Remember to vote, if you can.

    Think of the same thing. It all starts with the bottom uprising. By the way 1984 was a good book. read it back in high school.

    Already sent in my absentee ballot. Obama ftw. (btw the CIA or FBI or whoever thwarted plans of skinheads yesterday to assasinate him)

    I wasn't saying that at all, but maybe locations? Or something to that effect.

    be warned: that comes from wikipedia. dont think it would be prudent to search an island. pretty sure that aint a clue.

    Here's a quote from the summary of the book:

    The story starts, as the title tells us, in the year of 1984, and it takes place in England or as it is called at that time, Airstrip One.
    Do you think maybe the next tag will be in the UK/England?

    Me thinks you are all making too much hay out of it. Coordinates and clues seem to be a small % of this guys twitter posts. He'll post the coords when he posts the coords. No need to read all of 1984 - thought it is a highly recommended read.

    Pay attention 1984 is written about England, Bruce said there is new coordinates in England on the 10th tab. And there is Expo for UK Gamers within the next few days.

    Ugh. Cuz people are trying to decode 1984 over something that is oh so complex as to just require the ability to read and process GPS coordinates.

    I'm sorry if reading posts and critical thinking are too hard for ya Waterborn.

    lol wow. you really are a negative person aren't you. It's like you enjoy sucking the fun out of things and are always on the defensive.

    When you first started posting here, I was neutral about you and gave you the benefit of the doubt because you were frustrated about this "not being a real ARG" and whatnot. I showed no hostility to you whatsoever, was kind and pleasant to you.

    And above, when I called you a debbie downer, I obviously did so in fun. Otherwise I would have used meaner words. So I hardly think you calling me an idiot is called for.

    Well, I think it was a legitimate effort to decode SixOkay's Twitter post because the summary of the book that the quote came from talks about the book's setting taking place in England, which was where the next GPS coords came from. I think it was a fun exercise and a cool bit of foreshadowing, even though the exact coords got posted a bit later.
