Once there were two friends - named Taylor and Laura, respectively - whose favorite conversational subject was their status as the two smartest people on the planet. They both enjoyed reading, and they both took occasional stabs at writing, and one day they came up with the idea of creating a livejournal community in which they would write daily entries of 100 to 200 words. This, they decided, would get them in the habit of writing regularly, and make them better writers.
One day Laura re-visited the community, and discovered that in over a year she and Taylor had posted a sum total of 13 entries.
"That's retarded!" she exclaimed.
So she wrote an entry in the third person to suggest to Taylor that they re-visit their original goal of daily posting.
"The community doesn't fulfill our goal without the daily posting requirement," she said in the third person.
