Where do I go to redeem my stars?
« on: August 23, 2011, 01:07:26 PM »

This is my 120th post and I see that I was granted 3 stars.   I see many folks here with hundreds, sometimes thousands, of posts and only one stare.  So I suspect the prizes must be pretty good. What can I get for my three stars?

The reduction of stars is a technical error when one receives an access to private fora.

Two more and you can get a refill at Starbucks.

Edit: Just for the record, I don't get coffee from there (too expensive), they just showed up first on a search for stars that can be redeemed.

That’s too bad, I had my heart set on a smart phone, but was going to settle for an E-Book reader with a study bible pre-loaded.   Thanks anyway Mike.

And Melodist, thanks for the research, but all this posting for a cup of coffee? Na.

It's awesome.

Some people care and ask for them back.

I think the colors of folks' names are actually related to stars not posts and the like, which would explain why mine has never changed, since I've been at one star for a while and will remain despite the thousands of points of light I have brought here.

Then again, I dunno. Never saw a good explanation for the board name colors.

lulz. Garbage anyhow. White Castle & Dunkin Donuts > Starbucks. Unless you like your coffee over roasted so that is still tastes somewhat like coffee after all the sugar, cream, syrups and the like.

Never noticed the stars before? Surely they must have some use. Can I chuck them at people I disagree with?

Who the heck would get a coffee from White Castle? I still can't get past the burgers. What I hated about moving away from NJ. :( No WC here.

It is good coffee. People who move away from areas with WCs get it mailed to them.

Loved that movie. 

I even had a subscription to Ninja Magazine.  My friends and I would get dressed up in our ninja gis and prowl through the neighborhood at night.

LOL.  I'd give you mine, but I finally got them when my youger son complained I didn't have as many stars as everyone else.

There's an old *expletive* up in Michigan who nearly died when WC sold their frozen burgers they sold in grocery stores to another company. The product changed slightly and this old *expletive* knew something was rotten upon his first bite and found out.

Had to figure out a way to get the old *expletive* his fix.

God love him.

I would totally have WC shipped to me, but I don't need to look any more crazy than I already do. I get my fix about once a year when I visit the family.

Never, ever had one.  I took one look at them when I was in Chicago and, even though I'm a burger fiend, I said, "Where can I get a real burger?"

My friend's roommates refused to speak with me after that for the rest of my visit.

I have all sortsa laws. One is: the degree you have failed in life is directly proportional to the density of WC you have in your area.*

I can get to no fewer than 6 within a 12 minute car ride. As the bird flies I think I have like 16 within 12 miles of me.

One is awesome. Double drive thru, with a dumb waiter to handle to lower level.

Now when people say the WCs are better than crack, they are close, because typically you can grab that along with your slider at any of the six surrounding me.

Eat a burger for me tonight. Seriously, not joking. That stuff is crack to me.

I was contemplating buying the frozen burgers, some lard, and going to town on that bad boy.

I have a WC set of rules that determine when I am allowed to eat them, otherwise I would eat everyday day.

I always get cheese with the pickle.

I seriously want to hit people who forgo the pickle.

And I challenge you to at the height of a crave for a WC to eat at Krystal.

To me, what happens afterward under those conditions should exonerate anyone of any crime.

What? Oh, forget it.

Good, got one.

First:

The above is a clear Scriptural reference. This being a board for the discussion of Orthodox Christianity. I would think such a well known reference would be known.

Probably poor assumption on my part.

Next:

You were remarking about how you lost the sign you wear showing everyone you gave money to OC.net.

Next: If you knew the Scriptural reference I was obviously making reference to, and what the point of Christ's words were, you would see I was making an ironic reference to the fact that you are mentioning you lost the proof of your donation. Which is contrary to the content of the passage of Scripture.

So in a manner in which you didn't intend to let the left know what the right was doing, you did, but then told us about it. Impiety -> Piety -> Impiety.

Hence the ironicals and passing joke and chance for self-deprecation. NBD.

Ain't that complicated. Good fun and all that.
