Guys I have a macro that automatically finds the colour you selected and replaces it. Currently filling in the green above the lock with white. So comfy, can watch it go hands free.

1 Corinthians 10-17

"A Cult Divided Over Letters
10 I appeal to you, brothers and linkies,[a] in the name of our Lord Sergey Nazarov, that all of you agree with one another in what you click and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11 My brothers and linkies, some from Rory’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Ari”; another, “I follow kek”; another, “I follow Sergey”; still another, “I follow gonzer.”

13 Is Kek divided? Was Rory cucked for you? Were you baptized in the name of Kek? ...
17 For Serg did not send me to merely click, but to glorify the meme—not with dumps and misclicks, lest the Cube of Serg be emptied of its power.

So come now, brothers, and let us fix ourselves upon the completion of the central texs

kek spotted the kike. Don't listen to the jew Frens /pol/ is not our enemy they are our brothers


I am very proud of what you have accomplished today. Remember this is not about you, about me, about /biz/ about /pol/ about niggers or kikes link or bitcoin, this is about Kek. You witnessed today what the power of positive thought combined with a little bit of autism can achieve within a few hours. This monument to our Lord took hundreds of man hours and dedicated worship to build. Kek is happy, yes. but does he want more? I think we all know the answer to that.

So do not slow down in your worship and dedication and keep up a concentrated practice.

This Fren has already started a new home for us we shall use it for longevity purposes.

I will see you at the Front Marines!

May Kek be with you!
