  1. Paul Kincaid defeats bold font. If you try putting his name in bold, it undoes itself. No one knows how or why; some suspect internet-native nanobots that undo the HTML tag (they eat it). Others suspect that Paul is already bold enough, and that a shadow government agency has rewritten HMTL code on the programming level to prevent him from ever getting bolder.

    Whatever the truth, Paul Kincaid cannot be stopped.

    1. Though not unscathed, I defeated the nefarious one-eyed, one-horned flying purple programming eater, and was thus able to restore Paul Kincaid’s textual boldness.
