This is it.
My two thousandth post.

My one thousandth post - December 15, 2003

Let's see here.

Since that post, I haven't posted so fast.

Well then. We'll see if there'll be 1000 more; my Tireless Rebutter habit has been suppressed with time.

Nice work, sir! I have (sadly) noticed fewer of your posts recently. [Frown]

That said, you're still far out-pacing me, although all of this free time at work has caused something of a spike in my recent posting habits.

I dream of one day having a post count higher than my member # [Big Grin]

oooo! Just noticed 555. Not as nifty as 2k, but it's still fun!! [Big Grin]

WP, I joined, what, 5 months before you did, and I have only half the posts. That's because I'm old and I can't keep up. [Wink] I never thought of myself as "quiet", but compared to you I'm downright shy. Compared to KL, I've taken a vow of silence.

KE

Edited to add: Seriously, the "Ornery 8" thing cost me six months, so time wise we are even. I guess that means you are prolific.

Size doesn't matter. On the other hand, the ability to blow long and hard...

(kenmeer, backing away carefully and wearing something very much like this:

Grizzly Proof Suit

Read 'Testing On Suit' as bottom of url site page before attempting revenge [Wink]

To those who haven't seen the 1996 Peter Lynch documentary on this called Project Grizzly, I inform them that it's a slightly boring half-hourish film that nonetheless is peppered with moments of AMAZING scenes, none of them gory but several of them hilarious. The Oscar clip is the Big Test. It being estimated that a full grown grizzly can deliver an impact with a force equivalent to that of a humongous big redwood-sized log smacking into one by swinging down in a 90 degree arc by two ropes hanging from a VERY big tree, we see Our Hero, wearing the suit displayed at the url above, standing erect as he waits for the log to smash into him, which it does, and which he survies just fine. As he awaits his possibly final moments before the log descends, he calmly/nervously sings, in a slight variation of the schoolyard Nah-nah-nah-Nah-nah song we sing when we stick out our tongues at our peers, these words:

"The log is going to bump me..."

It is slapstick/pratfall humor at its most extreme. Using rewind, one can replay this over and over and laugh hysterically each time for a MINIMUM of ten times in a row. When that log swings down and forward and knocks him backward like a chess pawn, one HAS to laugh... Michael Moore should take note of this for his next movie...)

kenmeer's upped his output (!) slightly. He now catches Warrsaw by July 30...

But he overtakes Everard (!) by Feb 24, 2006 [Eek!] (unless his arthritic fingers fall off)

An update on the infernal machine: against all reason, it has once again increased its output.

It catches:

WarrsawPact by July 15, 2005
Everard by Feb 1 2006

KnightEnder (by special request) - taking into account your exiles (both self-imposed and, um, not) I give you 13 days - April 16

The Infernal Machine by Kenmeer Livermaile

The mad professor had invented the perfect posting machine. It ran on that hypothetically infinite substance: boredom.

There are still guys who crawl their way through Harvard with readers, a secretary, and houseboy, too. I bet you've got a whole staff of researchers and writers, WP.

"I bet you've got a whole staff of researchers and writers, WP."

He does, but he's suing for a refund. A roomful of typewriting monkeys in hose and doublet (the apes, not the mechanical secretaries) is NOT what the Rhodes scholarship world dominion committee had promised him.

He should have gone with Skull'n'Bones: they have real golems: black-listed Jewish writers from the McCarthy purges who still haunt the ghost-writer halls. Having been denied reality so long, they've become so surreal they can't die... except by awarding them the Pulitzer Prize or Screenwriters' Guild Award.

Haha, good posts all around.

I won't even make it to July 15. I have too much school to be posting 7+ posts/day.

Damn, did the math for you in the other one. Here it is again:

quote:

You joined Jun 2004 (see the bottom of your posts for where I got that).

The number of posts = Today is June 2005. That's one year. There are 365 days in a year. 1000 posts/365 days = 2.74 posts per day.

How's that?

Does something smell good in here?

Thanks, jav.

Math was never my strong suit, but you make it look easy. And me kind of dumb, but I can handle it!

I never even noticed the registered date at the bottom, even though I always saw the 'posts' number.

How crazy is that? [Frown] [Roll Eyes] [Frown]
