"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Personally, I prefer to plan ahead and make a trip to the candy store before getting in such dire straits...this was really bad planning on both our parts, guess we have no choice but to borrow beer ;)

-1 bottle of beer on the wall,
-1 bottle of beer,
Take it down,
Pass it around
-2 bottles of beer on the wall......

LOL...though I am inclined to the ridiculous, I think that's about as far as I'll go...

Of course... I mean, if we really planned a night of Christian camaraderie, why would we only get 59 bottles of beer to start with?

Because Math isn't ozgeorge's forte.

Oh, and I'd like to point out that the pointlessness of this thread has helped us to get under 100 from the magic 100k number...
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Reminds me of last Pascha when the new students who organized the festivities thought that bottles were a better idea than kegs and it was BYOB within a half hour...fortunately the student body as a whole was better prepared.

This is why one needs their elders to help plan things like Barbeques, Lamb Roasts, etc.
Of course, all within reason (we have a few friends of ours GiC that shouldn't be planning purchases from the candy store - it would be too much {as if that were possible}).

This would have to be the most pointless thread I've seen since I've been here, much less participated in.

And believe it or not, this was pretty much the intent of the thread... so maybe it is one of the ones that has stayed "on topic" the longest!
