    General will have a field day with these spoilers.

    Edit 2 - By the way, in quotes the tags don't seem to work.

    Great feature! I remember several asked for it some time ago.

    Please fix it so that the hidden tag works in the quoted post, too.

    And apostrophes make the hidden part even more hidden (i.e. invisible even when mousing over it, although it will still show when you use reply & quote).

    There's also a bug that makes it disappear when you include an apostrophe.

    This method of hiding spoilers is the best yet. There are no better methods.
    It can be improved, but it is a good start.
    You don't have to use it, but you can if you want.

    i know, i was just being an annoying twerp - it's actually quite nice as long as you don't get quoted in a reply. but it's still fun to screw around every now and again

    testing:

    How does a starfish digest its food? (for the most fun results, I suggest you should only read the answer while tacking into a very large meal -the answer here IS factually correct)

    A starfish has two stomachs; the cardiac stomach and the pyloric stomach. First it regurgitates out the cardiac stomach out of its mouth at its food and this makes the stomach go inside out in the process. the cardiac stomach then engulfs and partly digests that food. Then it slurps the cardiac stomach back into its mouth, swallows it, and then the partially digested food is moved to the pyloric stomach. Further digestion occurs in the intestine and waste is either excreted through the anus on the aboral side of the body, or if the anus is absent, as in brittle stars, waste is excreted through the mouth.


    -Now just imagine what it would be like if you had to digest food like that at a public restaurant
