I've broken the DiscoParser again, but in a slightly different way this time
Continuing the discussion from Parsing Markdown with regexes and MD5 () is seriously hilarious:
What the actual fuck kind of parsing is this? I am seriously laughing out loud at my desk. It's absolutely the most ridiculous parsing system I've ever heard of.

Except for this post.
Still, not a bad idea...hmm...

Because it'll just be a
ASCII art is an impediment to civil discourse.
Manually created ASCII art is, yes. but if it were created with something "hipster cool" like aalib…
A picture of his Jeffness, vi aalib, for example.

Ok, who wants to go to meta.d and request a monospaced font as a default for all Discourse installs?
I might actually keep this in my Stylish. It's rather pretty. To me, at least.
