And quite an effort it was, too.  I left to see my cousins with something like 99,800 posts and came back to 100,000+.  They just took the bit in their teeth and ran with it.  Cheesy

Yes, quite the effort on our parts; holding down all that beer, mixing all that liquor towards the end...
Keeping it all relevant (ha!)...

Of course, this now begs the question: is there a purpose for this thread now?  I don't see any "drive for 200k" in the near future...

It is nice to have a thread that is by definition intellectually pointless... I mean, more than the shoutcast (and its limits - darn you!)...
Who knows what earth-changing things can be accomplished...

    Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
    Mayor: What do you mean, biblical?
    Ray: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor... real Wrath-of-God-type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies.
    Venkman: Rivers and seas boiling!
    Egon: 40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanos.
    Winston:The dead rising from the grave!
    Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats, living together... mass hysteria!

Zoe: My first reaction yesterday (the 2nd) when I went back and re-read the whole thread was:

"Wow.  I think I just became dumber.  Congratulations."

But, now for the reassuring part: Zoe, I can't believe you just read all of that either!

Yes, a corny/strange sense of humor is contagious!

True... nothing like a disclaimer like "don't drink and read - results aren't our fault - there is a risk of injury" and then having a thread "99,999 bottles of beer on the wall"

So there we have it... increase E-tequilla consumption on the "post count" thread, and it will make the content funnier....

Any other ideas other than tequillia?  I'm actually not a fan of it...

One small step for ecumenical pointless dialogue, one giant leap for inter-human camaraderie...

And a *fine* thing it is, too!

Well we don't want to be exclusive here...the tequilla has to stay.  But the ouzo still gets primacy.  Wink

Hmm...I'm willing to bet that if you were willing to give metaxa the primacy, you'd have Cleveland's backing for your notion, as well as mine...

All this talk of primacy doesn't seem very Orthodox to me!  Tongue

Ok I suppose the democratic (and Orthodox) thing to do would be to agree on metaxa.  Why am I urged to say cleveland is the Pope of Metaxa now?

As the Bishop of Metaxa, and Metropolitan of All Brandy, I think it is not appropriate for you to add the Papal title to my name...

I would vote for a nice Single Malt, or Guinness... and maybe Port, for my friend the former Anglican...
