Emperors Club

I am finally a member of the Emperors Club! Whoopee! I feel so cool. I wonder how long my dynasty will last?  There have been so many Chinese dynasties over the years. I wonder what my legacy will be? If I could only be as cool as Li Bing, although he wasn’t an emperor he was the vanquisher of The River God.  Oh well, I’ll settle for being Le Duc, the vanquisher of the Internet God. Whatever that means?
