Luckily, the Czar is on his game and noticed that we just passed our 10 year anniversary*. GorT has been busy with a new work assignment, Volgi is off translating some hockey playbooks into 14 languages, and ‘Puter….well, he’s so busy on Twitter he doesn’t really notice things like this. Czar, Mandy, and Doc joined later, so I squarely put the blame on the O.G.**
By the numbers it’s been an interesting 10 years. I actually find it hard to believe that it’s really been that long – it definitely doesn’t feel that way. We’ve made almost 8,500 posts dating back to August 23, 1970 (remember: time machine) – if you don’t believe me, check the sidebar. We’ve recorded 30 episodes over two seasons in our podcast. Over 4,000 people follow us on Twitter (aside from a handful of troublemakers, minions, and ne’er-do-wells, they’re probably all Russian bots) and tweeted over 364,000 inane messages that someone is reading…maybe…well, at least their looking at all the GIFs.
All in all, it’s pretty impressive given the idea that was kicking around in our collective minds 10 years ago.
I hope I’m speaking for the others in that I’m looking forward to another 10 years – although I’m not sure what media platforms we’ll dominate then but we all hope you’ll be there with us, enjoying our particular sense of multiple personality humor.

** Original Gormogons: Volgi, ‘Puter, and GorT
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
