Obsessing over tradition is itself a modern phenomenon.

By modern do you mean "not in the peasant villages in the old country in the 17th-19th centuries"?

Hey bro! What's up with the UT hat? Did that BAMA beat down of your Cajuns drive you to Texas? Maybe you believe the ridiculous rumors about Saban going to the Longhorns.  ;)

But all kidding aside, it's good to see you back.  :)


Selam

I started pulling for a team I liked rather than what my friends and family liked haha I love the state of Texas, plus there is so much history and tradition. Even though their last appearance in the NC Alabama beat them bad. :(

I'm not going to lie, Saban at UT would be awesome...but I love Mack Brown.

If you only knew.

When I worked at Sam's Club as a wage slave, I had a very short experience working in the bakery department to prepare Graduation cakes.

The woman who was spelling out "Congratulation" spelled it wrong on nearly a dozen cakes. We had literally 10 people in this small bakery scrambling to correct it and also serve about 35 people in a line that extended all the way to the meat department.

Thankfully my shift ended early and I didn't have to clean.

Dude, you are going to make me go all debt collection here? Think back to a certain election. I said I would trust you would make good on your debt then you melted down or something and became a Buddhist Airman and I never saw any funds hit oc.net in the amount agreed upon.

Given the interest, let's say $125 to oc.net and call it even.

Then maybe I am wrong and all the above is a figment of my imagination.

Sorry, Celtic, I was wrong. I thought it was $100 after a double down. Forget that whole $125 bit. Maybe you paid in two installments of $25.

I didn't get as much juice on that election as I would have liked but enough.

Yes, that is the official rule.

LOL! Dude, what is the most insane thing you ever wrote, painted, iced, whatever?

Once, this dude brought me a beaten up, smashed, discounted heart-shaped cake.

From a different store.

The day after valentine's day.

At night, right before closing time.

Don't remember what I wrote on it, but if a picture's worth a thousand words, cake is the product of a thousand tears. Who am I to disagree?

A month ago I suggested that if we were able to push through about 700 posts/day we'd finally have a month cross the 20,000 post milestone.  October disappointed, but November has promise still.  If we average just about 733/day for the rest of this week we can reach the milestone.

As my post count shows, I obviously have no problem "helping" things along in this respect  ;D.  Now, maybe I've missed it, but why the goal-orientation regarding achieving a specified number of posts each month?  What happens as a result of reaching a particular "milestone"?

Nothing specific; just creating a goal for its own sake.  That is how this thread started in days of yore...

Getting back to the "random" part of the thread: I went to the dentist yesterday and got two of the four crowns he's pushing on me. I was in the chair for 2 hours and 15 minutes and this morning my mouth feels like the Tooth Fairy beat me up from the inside out. Ouch. That is all.

I guess the word can be defined that way too. I had something a bit different in mind though. I don't know much about American society but from outsiders perspective it seems more like revolutionary than traditional country.

I went out with a romanian co-worker last night . he was already wasted by the time we set out. we randomly met this romanian barmaid , she gave us free beer, which was a pleasant surprise on various levels, at which point my friend was past wasted. to the point where he was kicked out of the bar.

A month ago I suggested that if we were able to push through about 700 posts/day we'd finally have a month cross the 20,000 post milestone.  October disappointed, but November has promise still.  If we average just about 733/day for the rest of this week we can reach the milestone.

As my post count shows, I obviously have no problem "helping" things along in this respect  ;D.  Now, maybe I've missed it, but why the goal-orientation regarding achieving a specified number of posts each month?  What happens as a result of reaching a particular "milestone"?
Nothing specific; just creating a goal for its own sake.  That is how this thread started in days of yore... 
Oh, okay.  No disrespect Father, but I like reply #18932 better. ;D ;D

I still think it would be nice to have a get-together here in Western PA; I'd be willing to help fund it, but I cannot help with the planning.  If you come, I'll buy you some pizza, no milestone required.

Is that an open invitation, Father?  Don't know when we can make it up there but we'll happily join you and even split the cost of the pizza!!  Hopefully in the not too distant future we'll be in position to find a suitable rock to retire to and live under in your neck of the woods and we'll inflict ourselves upon you then  ;D.

Yeah...don't mess with Detroit!  ;)

No need.  It messes with itself.  But, looks like the beginning of a cleanup is in the works!!  Halleluiah!!!!
