Paul (Redcloud Brother)
Many of you have asked, "Paul, how do you get through your grueling four-hour-a-day work schedule and still find time to write one article a week?" Obviously, he can't do both, AND take 45-minute showers, AND set up the timer to tape Hawaii 5-0 every day. No man could. So how is this thing done? The answer is simple: time travel. To do his actual work, Paul enlists the aid of Future Paul, who is a grizzled, one-armed veteran of the Great Cyborg War. He is glad to do Present Paul's work for him in exchange for a few decaliters of gasoline (which, respectively, are the unit of volume and the currency of the future) so he can buy a bottle or two of Mad Dog 2525.
Incidentally, Future Paul also takes Present Paul's showers for him, and Past Paul watches the tapes of Hawaii 5-0, which explains Present Paul's smelliness and tendency to book people.
Besides writing articles for LnE, Paul also does site design, Flash, and programming for the site. He also spends hours in conference calls with CEOs of big companies, trying to negotiate big LnE advertising deals in exchange for the return, unharmed, of the CEOs' son. There is a warrant out for his arrest.
