At another forum that I'm a part-time participant at there is a tradition of posting scantily clad women whenever you reach certain posting milestones. I don't know why, that's just the tradition. I didn't think that'd go over too well here, so instead of "hot womenz" I bring you some of my favorite pictures of church architecture...







And for a modern Church, here's St. Innocent Mission (OCA) in Macon Georgia...

You got Georgia on your mind?

Very nice. I do like the last one. I think it is great that they built a Georgian style church in the state of Georgia; seems appropriate.

Congrats on 5000+ posts, Asteriktos! And I too had noticed Αριστοκλής' silence of late and hope that he is okay.

Everyone certainly has differing tastes, and it's interesting that you find these buildings attractive, because I find them rather cold, ominous and barn-like.

Indeed we differ! I saw firm, clean lines, an imposing structure that has strong rock-like characteristics. Even the smaller one is a model of simplicity.

LOL. I know-I'm sure I'm the odd one out! I prefer the fairytale-like wooden churches of the Carpathians and the gold cupolas and fanciful designs of the churches of the  Slavic countries to these structures which appear to me ominous and forbidding.

Hey, I was in 10th place before the OP stormed out of nowhere and reclaimed his spot.  Now I'm trying to slow down my posting average to 8, maybe 7 posts per day.

With his 500 post per month average, he'll be with the leaders in no time.   Grin

While I'm the closest to the mark, ozgeorge has a higher average than I and, thus, is more likely to attain that first.
Now, first to 20,000 is a bit more open, as we have a few people with astronomical posting averages over the last 2 years.

Just realised that I passed the 8,000 post mark recently. What I find incredible is that it took me 7 years to get to 5,000 posts, and then less than 13 months to get an additional 3,000 posts  Shocked Anyway, without further ado, for my 8,019th post I bring you some slightly more unique Orthodox Church architecture...

Those outside of America are being barred from watching a clip from Dodgeball, one of the greatest movies of the last decade? Is outrage! Here's the dialogue from the scene...

Peter La Fleur: Alliteration aside, I'll take my chances in the tournament.
White Goodman: Yeah, you will take your chances.
Peter La Fleur: I know. I just said that.
White Goodman: I know you just said that.
Peter La Fleur: Okay, I'm not sure where you're going with this.
White Goodman: Well, I'm not sure where you're going with this.
